I think that Monique Lhuillier is mostly wedding dresses... not sure though.

Other places to check out gh2 on hennepin, Pumpz at the Galleria for shoes, also at the Galleria Arafina and Ivy in uptown

One of my favorites Alfredís Grand Petit Magasin closed

Do you guys have a MJ, Balenciaga, Givenchy, or Chanel store?

If not

What department store has the best bag selection for these designers?

I'm going there on US thanksgiving to buy a bag and some clothes and a coat etc. Also are there any good sales going on when im going?

Thanks!

booradley, I think the directory found here:

http://www.mspmag.com/style/shopping/35824.asp

would best answer your questions. Unfortunately the directory does not list, nor do I know, any stores which carry balenciaga, givency, or chanel? Atleast clothing.. I think that Neiman Marcus might be the best for that search? I don't know though!

I don't go to MOA very often, but I'm curious if Nordstrom Rack ever has great stuff.

I get jealous when people pick up gems at theirs. I wonder if it's worth it to hang around.

I don't have really anything to add other than I think Minneapolis people are so nice and polite! I forced my friends to take me to 'Pawn America' because I couldn't get over the name. ibimus, I've been to St. Cloud...

Check out the Neiman Marcus downtown, they have one of the better designer collections. Also I was just at the Nordstroms at the Mall of America today, I noticed it has a Chanel in it, they also carry alot of other really great designers. They had some awesome stuff there!

ah im spamming this thread sorry lol.. but one more question

Does anyone know if Nordstroms or Neiman Marcus would order something in for me if I called them up, even if its a brand they do not carry (like asking them to order in a Givenchy Nightingale..lol)?

I'm assuming the target downtown is the best stocked since it is right next to their headquarters.

As for a store ordering you something, maybe if they stock the brand otherwise I'm guessing they wouldn't. You might as well call the Givenchy nearest wherever you're from and ask them.

yeah i would go with the target downtown, from my experience they have the most pieces from the GO! International line.

I didn't know this.. but I guess they opened up a Burberry in MOA?
