Tiffany and Co., Crystals

Everyone has heard the age-old saying, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” It’s definitely safe to say that the two-story, 10,000-square-foot Tiffany & Co. inside Crystals would be Holly Golightly’s favorite spot.

Tiffany jewelry shines with many different shimmering styles. If you find the selection overwhelming, there are consultants in the store who can cater to your individual needs. They’ll help you find the perfect piece suited for your personal taste and lifestyle. If you’re really stumped on what to get, Tiffany & Co. offers a showcase presenting the latest trends. In addition, Tiffany & Co. also offers private engagement ring consultations and personal engravings.

Jason of Beverly Hills, The Shops at Cosmopolitan

If you’re looking for a diamond piece that’s a bit more unconventional, Jason of Beverly Hills is where you’ll hit the jackpot. A favorite among stars like Mariah Carey, LeBron James, Kim Kardashian, the late Michael Jackson, Rihanna and Ashton Kutcher, Jason of Beverly Hills has a reputation for creating one-of-a-kind, contemporary diamond pieces.

Women can browse through engagement rings, earrings, necklaces and a fun selection of bright and colorful pieces. The men’s ring collection is creative and includes designs like a knights helmet, gas mask, tiger or a bullet, to name a few. If you’re looking for bling that’s both sophisticated and edgy, Jason of Beverly Hills proves it’s not your average luxury jeweler.

Henri Bendel, Fashion Show mall

If you’re familiar with shops along New York’s famous Fifth Avenue, then Henri Bendel is no stranger. With its grand opening in Fashion Show mall yesterday (pictured right), you’ll get a chance to take a piece of New York style with you. Featuring a fun and spunky collection of leather goods, clutches, jewelry, scarves and all kinds of accessories, it’s no wonder why they call it a girl’s playground.

“We are the quintessential New York style representative when it comes to fashion, excitement and accessories,” said Henri Bendel. “I think if you won a small jackpot, you’d be thrilled. If you won a big jackpot, you’d be out of your mind.”

Jewelry puts pizzazz into any outfit. Make sure to check out the Henri Rocks collection, featuring Swarovski crystals and a lot of color.

Penske Wynn Ferrari Maserati, Wynn Las Vegas

How would you like to drive back to your town with a brand new car? Located inside Wynn Las Vegas, Penske Wynn Ferrari Maserati is Nevada’s only factory-authorized Ferrari dealership. The showroom includes a brand-new and pre-owned collection like a 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia for $300,000 or the 2005 Ferrari 430 Coupe for $140,000.

Known for his unique and innovative designs on the runway, Tadashi Shoji provides a cutting-edge style for women. The full Tadashi brand includes the signature Tadashi luxury collection, bridal wear and cocktail dresses.

If you aren’t familiar with his style, let’s put it this way — it’s like wearing a piece of contemporary art. While the brand has available for the past three decades, Shoji got his claim to fame with his 2007 runway collection for New York’s Fashion Week. Fans of the Tadashi brand include Katy Perry and Dita Von Teese.

Barneys New York, The Shoppes at The Palazzo

Behind the cascading waterfall at the Shoppes at the Palazzo, you’ll come across the 85,000-square-foot Barney’s New York. Barney’s carries everything from accessories and shoes to evening wear and work attire from the hottest brands. There’s also a good chance you’ll run into a celebrity browsing through the racks.

Not only will there be a good chance of running into a celebrity, you’ll also have the luxury of an in-store personal shopper. Barney’s offers a complimentary personal shopping service. These consultants will take the time to coordinate outfits for you and help you achieve your best look. Barneys New York carries brands like Stella McCartney, Citizens of Humanity, Seven for All Mankind, Lanvin, Marni and much more.

We know there are dozens of other fine, luxury retail shops on the Las Vegas Strip. That’s what adds to the thrill of Vegas — winning the jackpot and spending your time in all of them. We’d like to wish you the best of luck and hope that your biggest worry is buying more suitcases for packing all of your new treasures.


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 handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies. You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
