FNO Las Vegas wants to deal shoppers a winning hand

August 23, 2010 |  4:45 pm

So far, most of the buzz about Fashion's Night Out has been focused on the coasts, but if you happen to find yourself in Las Vegas on Sept. 10, the odds are looking pretty good you'll be able to find some FNO-related celebrations.

The folks at the Wynn and Encore let us know that more than 20 of their luxury retailers will be doing something to mark the event, including Manolo Blahnik, Rock & Republic, Chanel, Hermes and Alexander McQueen

The Oscar de la Renta boutique is set to host an evening of merengue music and dance, the Champagne will be flowing and the music will be cranking at the Ensemble and Outfit shop and designer Katherine Parnello (of the Gimme More Couture collection) will be in the house at Black Satin Intimates.

All the Wynn and Encore events will run from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. that night.

During those same hours, there will be similar festivities just down the Las Vegas Strip at the Forum Shops at Caesars, including a party at the Salvatore Ferragamo boutique to celebrate the launch of the “W” bag -- and of creative director Massimiliano Giornetti's first women's collection.

David Yurman is offering truffles and Champagne -- and donating 10% of the evening’s proceeds to the Public Education Foundation. And Donald J. Pliner will be in his namesake store autographing shoes.

If grabbing a free "Tedtini" at Ted Baker isn't nearly enough to satisfy your cravings, some of the Forum restaurants, including Spago, Boa Steakhouse, Sushi Roku and Planet Hollywood, have also signed on to create special menu items.

Additional and updated information can be found at The Forum Shops at Caesars dedicated FNO page:
