Spe­cialty stores open at Saw­grass Mills

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Money - By Ron Hurt­ibise

A maker of bath soaps that look and smell like cup­cakes, donuts and pies is among sev­eral newly opened spe­cialty stores at Saw­grass Mills in Sun­rise.

The pop­u­lar mall, which calls it­self “the largest out­let and value shop­ping des­ti­na­tion in the United States,” is home to more than 350 stores. Here are the new­est:

Alex and Ani is a jewelry and ac­ces­sory brand known for ban­gle bracelets, neck­laces, ear­rings and rings. It gained na­tional at­ten­tion when Gwyneth Pal­trow was pho­tographed wear­ing an ap­ple neck­lace de­signed by the brand fol­low­ing the birth of her daugh­ter Ap­ple in 2004. The Saw­grass Mills store is its first out­let lo­ca­tion in Florida, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

Ariat sells Western and English eques­trian gear that pi­o­neered the use of ad­vanced ath­letic shoe tech­nol­ogy in its rid­ing boots. The new out­let lo­ca­tion, its first on the East Coast, fea­tures footwear, ap­parel and ac­ces­sories on close­out and sea­sonal over­stock, as well as best sell­ers.

The brand last year be­came the ti­tle spon­sor of the World Se­ries of Team Rop­ing and in 2015 signed an ex­clu­sive li­cens­ing and spon­sor­ship agree­ment with the In­ter­na­tional Eques­trian Fed­er­a­tion for its World Cup Fi­nals.

Mon­nal­isa sells trendy Ital­ian­made cloth­ing for boys and girls

up to 16 years old. The new Saw­grass Mills store is its first out­let world­wide and one of just five stores across the U.S. It op­er­ates a re­tail store in Bal Har­bour.

Nec­tar Bath Treats makes soap that re­sem­bles ed­i­ble con­fec­tions. “The child­like whimsy and sur­prise of ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a slice of cake that looks and smells like the real thing, but is, in

fact, a bath & body treat in­spires and mo­ti­vates us to cre­ate ex­cep­tion­ally charm­ing prod­ucts,” the com­pany says on its web­site. Prod­ucts in­clude donut soaps, cup­cake soaps, pie slice soaps, and milk­shake-style bath soaks. The brand also makes body scrubs, body lo­tions, lip balms and shower gels. Ac­cord­ing to its web­site, this is the brand’s first U.S. lo­ca­tion east of Las Ve­gas.

In March, Saw­grass Mills will open its first-ever Sephora store. The Paris­based

per­sonal care and beauty prod­uct re­tailer fea­tures nearly 300 brands in ad­di­tion to items sold un­der its own la­bel.

In ad­di­tion to the new stores, sev­eral ex­ist­ing ones re­cently ex­panded their spa­ces within the mall. They in­clude Adi­das Out­let, Columbia Sportswear Fac­tory Store, and the Levi’s out­let store.

Saw­grass Mills is lo­cated on West Sun­rise Boule­vard, just east of the Saw­grass Ex­press­way.
