Las Vegas boasts a wide assortment of designer brands and outlet shopping that matches—if not exceeds—what is found in its retail centers. Or, if you like to trek off the beaten path, there are exceptional resale boutiques in which to buy designer wares. Great finds await with barely any digging required when shopping in Las Vegas. By cab, car, or bus, an answer to every wish is only a short trip away.
Las Vegas North Premium Outlets
An outdoor shopping complex, Las Vegas North Premium Outlets recently underwent a major renovation that brought more designer brands into its portfolio. Austrian design house Helmut Lang doesn’t have a mainline boutique in Las Vegas, but they do have an outlet here and it’s filled with monochromatic, minimalist staples, such as oversized T-shirts and leather jackets. The Neiman Marcus Last Call Studio and Saks Fifth Avenue’s Off Fifth provide the department store ambiance if your desire is to shop a wider range of styles, looks, and brands. Don’t forget to complete your look with a stop at Alexis Bittar for a statement necklace.
The ReFinery Celebrity Resale Boutique
In need of a pair of gently worn designer heels, that might even have been gently worn by a celebrity? Take a trip east to The ReFinery Celebrity Resale Boutique. A staple off-the-Strip shopping destination for more than 30 years, The ReFinery is where Las Vegas’ most affluent residents resell their designer clothes and accessories. It’s easy to get lost in the racks and racks of Italian and French designer brands. Whether you’re on the hunt for a hard-to-find item from last season, or desperate for that black leather quilted bag to go with everything, The ReFinery makes you feel as if you’ve stumbled upon buried treasure when shopping in Las Vegas. If you can’t get to the store, shop online.
On the west side of town, Natasha Young’s Closet Couture showcases designer resale in a well-merchandised boutique setting. The store is styled exquisitely and the racks aren’t overloaded with mismatched items. She frequently posts new arrivals of interest to her Facebook page, and her clients come from all over the country to buy and sell.
Located downtown on Main Street and surrounded by what’s known as “Antique Alley”—stores selling vintage Vegas decor—it’s not uncommon to find designer dresses with the tags still on at Buffalo Exchange. Not always about the big names, Buffalo Exchange sells a variety of styles of clothes from this era and others. Make sure to stop across the street at Makers and Finders for a coffee break and order a lavender latte.
