Homegrown Boutiques The location couldn’t be more unassuming—five miles south on Interstate 15, inside a sprawling commercial-furniture center. But Unica Home is a design maven’s dream, stocking everything from curvy Ron Arad chairs to whimsical Alessi olive oil tasters, and even a reproduction of the classic Pan Am travel bag.
Suffering from retail overload?Find relief at Talulah G, whose racks hold a carefully edited selection of designer clothing, from Zac Posen to Missoni to Chloé. There are now three locations, in Fashion Show Mall (large), Summerlin (largest), and at Red Rock Resort (sanest).
Modify, a vintage shop in downtown’s arts district, has a compelling array of classic 1960’s and 70’s furniture, including sofas by Paul Evans and Milo Baughman (702/384-6555).
The Last Word on Outlets Vegas is known for its scads of discount outlets. But the king of them all is 35 miles west, in the border town of Primm: Fashion Outlets Las Vegas has outposts from Burberry, Versace, Neiman Marcus, and Tod’s (check the table in front, where $350 loafers sell for $95). A shuttle bus leaves every hour from the Strip (888/424-6898; $15).
