Henri Bendel makes its stylish Las Vegas debut at Fashion Show mall

A girl can never have too many accessories, right?

Lucy Hale, who plays Aria Montgomery on the hit TV series, "Pretty Little Liars" will be at Henri Bendel's grand opening on Wednesday from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Henri Bendel, a popular boutique in New York City, is opening its first location in Las Vegas at Fashion Show mall this Wednesday, August 29. Celebrating the grand opening is “Pretty Little Liars” star, Lucy Hale. Since I’m a huge fan of the show and shopping, this is a double treat for me. Shoppers are invited to drink champagne, shop and enjoy special offers. Hale will do the honors of the ribbon cutting at 6 p.m. and party with the crowd until 8 p.m.

Henri Bendel, a New York City icon since 1895, is one of Manhattan’s chicest shopping destinations. If you’re looking to add a spunky touch to your wardrobe, this is one spot you don’t want to miss. One of New York’s trendiest destinations, there are more than 20 stores nationwide.

“Henri Bendel is really all about the most exciting assortment of women’s accessories, handbags and small leather goods and jewelry,” said Chris Fiore, president of Henri Bendel. “It is a girl’s playground and that’s what we’ve been calling it for years.”

Fiore added that the items in this retailer are attainable from a price point perspective. It’s always great to look high-fashion but not spend the designer prices!

The store’s archway is modeled after the legendary location on Fifth Avenue. The iconic brown and white stripe seen on the store’s shopping bags and hatboxes is interspersed throughout the space, while custom-made chandeliers cast a warm glow over the accessories. Whether you’re shopping for bangles, scarves, clutches, fragrances or gifts for your girlfriends, the wide selection and stylish atmosphere makes you want to stay in here all day.

“We are the quintessential New York style when it comes to fashion, excitement and accessories,” he said. “I think Vegas will be very happy to have us as a part of their retail and fashion scene.”

Henri Bendel opens its second location at Caesars Palace’s Forum Shops in November. For more information about Henri Bendel, visit here. I already set my eyes on the bowtie stud earrings. With the holidays coming around just around the corner, it’s not too early to add these to my wish list.



Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies.
