I recommend this mall highly mostly because it was another place in Vegas where I found I could breathe due to smoking being prohibited inside the mall. (Oh, and I like to shop!)As malls go, the layout over 3 levels does require some walking and sometimes it is a little confusing trying to find a specific store. The decor is light, airy and modern. Anchors are Dillards, Macys, Norstrom, Saks and Neiman Marcus. Many national chain shops but nice to see different retailers than other places I've been. For a complete store directory, visit the mall's web site at www.thefashionshow.com/html/storedirectory.asp Some individual observations:The Coldwater Creek is one of the largest I've ever been in. Ballys of Switzerland (a leather goods company not affiliated with the Vegas Resort) was very well stocked, attractively decorated and the sales help very knowledgeable. My husband was able to get a much needed pair of shoes that he likes so well.Was sad that the Sigrid Olson store hadn't opened yet.A special find was a jewelry store called Local Charm. (Read the separate entry on this for more info.)This is a good place to go if you forgot something when packing for your trip, in case of inclement weather or, dare we say, in case you are sick of gambling.
