Last night I had the pleasure of being invited to a VIP Spring preview of merchandise at the newly renovated Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th. Wow. As previously mentioned in yesterday's blog post, this was always my go-to Opry Mills destination, and I couldn't be more excited that this store, and the entire mall, is reopening to the public this very minute! (I was anticipating attending the ribbon cutting ceremony this morning, but had to come to work instead.)
Upon arrival at Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th, I was greeted by a few friendly employees distributing coupons. I was immediately struck by the updated and stunning new store layout. This place is beautiful. A store manager informed me they were trying to achieve an upscale department store layout with thick wooden cashwraps in the center of the space, four dressing rooms flanking each side. Oh, and the merchandise! Stella, Chanel, Prada, YSL, Marc Jacobs, oh my! I thought I'd share a few of my favorite shots from the evening....
Loved this adorable display in the children's department.
Rows and rows of trendy spiked Sam Edelman shoes.
The new Men's department is clean and streamlined.

I loved this stylish customer's pants.
