Last month while I was I spending time experiencing the mLife in Las Vegas I snuck away from the group for a few hours. It was JUST enough time for one of MY favorite past times….SHOPPING. If you were following my twitter feed while I was away, I KNOW you saw the check-ins at Nanette Lepore and a few other stops along the way as I cruised through one of my favorite Las Vegas shopping mecca’s – The Shops at Crystals.
No, this was not the first time I’ve been shopping there (search through my older posts and you’ll see how I just “happened” to visit when they first opened).
With Mother’s Day merely a WEEK away, I wanted to share some of the wonderful “VIP Vegas” Mother’s Day gifts that are available at Crystals.
For the Mom Who Wants to Dazzle
Tiffany & Co. offers a gorgeous Ziegfeld ring made with freshwater pearls and black onyx set in sterling silver. Stella McCartney’sstunning new prismatic Plexi Clutch is made entirely from sustainable materials. Harry Winston’s Lily Cluster Necklace is not only a sensational piece, but Harry Winston Inc. will donate 20 percent of the retail price to seven philanthropic groups across the United States. Crystals’ boutique will donate to Keep Memory Alive: a Las Vegas organization committed to improving the lives of patients and their families as they navigate the extraordinary challenges of brain disorders.
For the Mom Who Adores Colors
Fendi’s new collection of Crayon wallets lets Mom select from a variety of colors to complement any outfit. Versace’s luxurious Medea bag is fit for any goddess. It’s made with leathers quilted one by one with tone-on-tone cotton thread that creates the distinctive three-dimensional look and feel of Versace’s iconic Barocco quilting pattern. Paul Smith’s Westbourne bag, which features a soft leather hobo style with a spacious interior and a short handle, is perfect for all maternal fashionistas on the go.
For the Mom Who Wants to Make a Statement
H.Stern’s Tellina Earrings are part of the brand’s recently updated Iris collection and are made of 18k rose gold layers united by an 18k Noble Gold bar with a Victorian style diamond setting. Ilori’s Sama Ashton Sunglasses, available in platinum pearl with 18k white gold lenses and titanium frame, will have her looking chic. This trendy Multi Loop Short Quartz Necklace from Brunello Cucinelli is handmade from blue quartz, grey quartz and wood.
For the Mom Who Collects Art
A piece from one of The Shops at Crystals’ featured galleries will be a gift she can admire for years to come. From The Art of Richard MacDonald, the “Joie de Femme” sculpture will intrigue Mom with two female figures playing a trumpet and a horn as they dance with exuberance. An incredible photograph from Rodney Lough Jr. Gallery, such as his spectacular “God’s Garden,” will be a piece she’ll cherish forever. For Mother’s Day weekend only (May 10-12), guests who purchase a framed RLJ Gallery photograph for their mother will receive a complimentary copy of the photo for themselves.
