Shop: It takes a (retail) village
Story by Sara Nunn
This month, Tivoli Village opens - the first phase, anyway. It's a handsomely built, mixed-use development that could be Summerlin's answer to Town Square. The architecture echoes that of the shopping center's namesake Tivoli, Italy, offering a pleasant place to stroll after lunching at one of the center's restaurants, which include Petra Greek Restaurant and Tivoli Irish Pub.
We're most looking forward to the opening of Charming Charlie, an accessory boutique that's like a candy shop for grown-ups. The store offers jewelry, handbags and shiny little baubles at prices ranging from $4.97 to $49.97, so you can go totally overboard without overspending - or at least have a vast pile of glittering this-and-thats to show for it (minimalism is for suckers, anyway).
Besides, you can hide it all in some new arm candy from Corsa Collections, a lifestyle store with an excellent selection of higher-end handbags. Should all that accessorizing prove hopelessly tiring, never fear: You can always treat yourself (some more) at the Ritual Salon and Spa. www.tvqr.com, 302 S. Rampart, Summerlin.
