We walked in here from the strip and just though we would explore a bit and browsed a few shops. Quite a pricey place, but we were impressed with all the lovely decorations, because it went with how elegant the Bellogio is. If your ever here, make sure to check out the window decorations.
As all American cities, also Las Vegas is the Mecca of the shopping maniac. There are shopping centres almost in all hotels, however, if you rent a car, then you may go to farther outlets. In the largest shopping centres you find everything from the everyday bargains to the priceless luxury.

Those are my two favorite places to take the kids. The premium outlets just got a fantastic makeover and Town Square is a great place to just walk around and window shop. Town Square has a great place for the kids to play btw. The premium outlets have some stuff for kids too like the Merry Go Round and more.
The Primm Outlets are NOT what people call 'Las Vegas Outlet'. It is located about 25mins from Las Vegas and we had a quick look inside at the Juicy Couture Store, since I was interested in buying a tracksuit which my friends bought in the USA. I didn't buy it as a friendly shop assistant said that the Primm Outlet was not where majority of shoppers were calling the outlet.
What to pay: The Juicy Couture shop was pretty expensive eg. $80 just for a jacket! If some like to pay loads for their clothing, then you may enjoy these outlets. Anyway, if heading into Las Vegas you may as well check them out- you never know shops have sales regularly!!
This is only a 45-minute drive outside Las Vegas or make a stop before you head into Vegas. This mall, located on the California-Nevada state line, has 100-plus shops ranging from high-end retail shops like Coach and Escada to outlet shops such as Nautica Outlet, Nine West, and Last-Call Nieman Marcus Store. Shuttles operate daily form the MGM Grand and the Desert Passage to this mega outlet.
when you want to do the regular shopping without the touristy and crowds of the Las Vegas Strip shops, the nearest strip mall in the south end of the Strip is the Ocotillo Plaza Shopping Center, A big Strip Mall located east of the Excalibur Hotel along the East Tropicana Avenue where you can do the regular shopping without the crowds. However, thy don't sell touristy stuff here as these is off the strip and is not a tourist location, this is where the Las Vegas Locals and the People from nearby Paradise, Winchester, Henderson and other nearby Towns shop. It is not the only strip mall in las Vegas but it is the nearest on the South Strip Area. So if you have a rental car, just follow the East Tropicana Avenue along the Tropicana or the Excalibur.
What to buy: the regular stuff without the touristy stuff like buying cheao stuffs at Walmart, eat good mexican chicken at El Pollo Loco
opens: 10:00 am to 9:00 pm everyday
What to pay: not a dent on your wallet

This "Shopping List" will be listed with a question like "Looking for Versace?" until I am done on all the signature shops at Aria Hotel...I am listing the stores individually because these mall has the best signature collection and this shopping tips are for those tourists who love shopping and money is not a problem at all!

I think there are only two Versace boutiques in Las Vegas. There's one at the Forum Shop at Caesar's Palace and one at Aria Hotel.
What to buy: Women's and men's clothes, shoes, accessories, etc
What to pay: Super expensive and expect to spend a lot of money

This shopping mall reminds me of a space ship and it looks a little out of place on the Strip, yet it is the sign of the times that the future there is always change.
It is one of the nation's largest shopping centers and Las Vegas' premier retail destination, Fashion Show. High end stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Dillard's, Neiman Marcus, Macy's, Nevada's only Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale's and another 250 shops and restaurants.
This is a great mall to hit when you are in town. The prices may not be as cheap as in the outlet and discount stores, but like in any mall there are always sales.
A friend, who also loves Las Vegas, swears to me that there are ACTUALLY fashion shows at The Fashion Show Mall... hence the name.
Personally I have never caught one of these free shows but I did notice in the center, on the lower lever there is indeed an area that looks like a runway, with lights and a curtain so maybe I'll catch one next time I'm in town!
What to buy: For a Canadian it's the department stores that are the big draw! I always have to visit Macys, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and of course Neiman Marcus when I am in town.
Oh yes and Victoria's Secret, yet another store we do not have Canada!
