New York shopping icon Henri Bendel opened its first store in Las Vegas on Wednesday at Fashion Show mall, and “Pretty Little Liars” starlet Lucy Hale was on hand in the early evening for a ribbon cutting and to welcome the first customers to the store.
Henri Bendel President Chris Fiore also was on hand for the opening. A second Henri Bendel, which opened in Manhattan in 1895(!) and is widely known for its signature brown-and-white stripes, is set to open in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace later this year.
Incidentally, Hale’s “Liars” co-star Ashley Benson is set to appear at the Palazzo this Labor Day weekend.
