They say, “New year, new you.” But, maybe all you need is a new wardrobe. Or, maybe you didn’t get your shopping fix during the holiday season. Perhaps, you just didn’t get what you wanted for Christmas. Whatever the case may be, chances are you’ve got some shopping to do this month. Take advantage of these options and start your new year off right. Here are the best sales, fashion, and lifestyle events happening in Las Vegas in January.
[UPDATED January 14, 2016.]
While the Chinese New Year begins on February 8, 2016 and it is the Year of the Monkey, The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace (3500 South Las Vegas Boulevard) is displaying a traditional Chinese dragon throughout the Chinese New Year celebratory season. A legendary creature in Chinese mythology and folklore, the dragon is a traditional symbol of power, strength, and good luck. The Forum Shops is sharing this fabled creature in a big way by welcoming a 22-ft. long, 6 ft. wide and 12 ft. high dragon to the world-renowned retail destination. Located on the Fortuna Terrace near the interior entrance to The Forum Shops from Caesars Palace casino, the massive 950-lb steel-framed dragon is covered in 30,000 red and amber LED lights, many of which flicker, giving the mythical beast a vibrant look and dynamic feel. It makes the perfect Instagram selfie background!

If one of your new year’s resolutions is to do more charity work, here’s a great opportunity for you. Nathan Adelson Hospice’s Pet Therapy Program today announced its 5th Annual Dog Bed & Blanket Drive in support of animals at local shelters. The Pet Therapy Program, which comprises 14 trained therapy dogs, continues to help keep animals warm this season as the colder weather permeates the Las Vegas valley. From January 4 – February 28, all Nathan Adelson locations will serve as a drop-off point for new or gently used items including: dog beds; blankets; towels; wash cloths; linens; and unopened pet food. The addresses are: 4141 Swenson St., Las Vegas; in the MountainView Medical Office Building, 3150 N. Tenaya Way (near Cheyenne), Suite 350, Las Vegas; 2270 E.
