Orlando Caters to Serious Shoppers with
High-End Stores, Boutiques and Galleries

For those who consider shopping an art, and many of us do, Orlando provides both the inspiration and ample opportunity for practice.

The Malll at Millenia - Louis VuittonAt Orlando's most luxurious mall, The Mall at Millenia, shoppers are instantly wooed by wide, uncluttered walkways, comfortable seating and an artful combination of glass and Italian marble. Ambiance aside, the mall delivers the goods—and exquisite goods at that. Its more than 100 stores include department stores Macy's, Bloomingdale's and Neiman Marcus as well as upscale clothiers Burberry, Gucci, St. John, Alviero Martini, Bernini, Hugo Boss, Christian Dior and Kenneth Cole. The latest in home entertainment is available at SONY Style and The Apple Store.

Other luxury retailers at The Mall at Millenia include jewelers like Tiffany & Company as well as purveyors of accessories and leather goods Chanel, Coach and Louis Vuitton. Timeless gifts and collectibles can be found at Lladró or Swarovski. For the strappy heels made famous by red-carpet celebrities, shop Jimmy Choo. And, for the styles the stars can't live without, plan a stop at Juicy Couture.

Shoppers are enticed to make a day of it by breaking bread at one of the mall's tempting full-service restaurants, California Pizza Kitchen, McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant, The Cheesecake Factory, P.F. Chang's and Brio Tuscan Grille. The Blue Martini, an upscale martini bar, features live entertainment and refreshing specialty cocktails.

Discriminating shoppers will revel in The Mall at Millenia's dedication to service, including valet parking, full-service concierge, foreign currency exchange, gift wrapping, taxi stand and even ticket sales for area attractions.

At Orlando's largest mall, The Florida Mall, upscale department stores Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Dillard's and Macy's anchor more than 250 stores selling every heart's desire—apparel and shoes for the whole family, cards and books, specialty foods, makeup and perfume, sporting goods, toys and games, cameras and electronics, jewelry, home furnishings and more. The Florida Mall also offers shoppers several guest services including valet parking, a taxi stand, stroller rental, gift wrapping and multilingual staff members at its two guest service locations.

Shoppers at the upscale department stores at either The Mall at Millenia or The Florida Mall may choose to enlist the complimentary services of a personal shopper. Although the service is complimentary, personal shoppers work on an appointment-only basis, so it is necessary to call your store of choice ahead of time. Neiman Marcus, located at The Mall at Millenia, even offers an online personal shopper request form. Knowing your particular preferences in advance, the personal shopper can pull a variety of items from throughout the store and bring them to the personal shopping office for you to make an effortless and private selection, or gifts can be wrapped and waiting for you to pick up.

If you appreciate finer brands like Coach, Barney's, Burberry, Giorgio Armani and Fendi, you'll appreciate the savings you'll find at Orlando Premium Outlets. These are just a sampling of the 110 upscale clothing, shoe, luggage, accessories and other stores at the outlet center.

Discerning shoppers will enjoy the fresh-air, small-town feel of browsing on Winter Park's Park Avenue, dubbed "Rodeo Drive East" for its boutiques and galleries. Small upscale clothiers like Tuni, Cody's, John Craig, Patchington, Nicole Miller and Golden Rabbit dot the avenue along with independent stationers, jewelers and florists and a few high-end chain retailers such as Ann Taylor, Talbot's and Williams-Sonoma.

For truly one-of-a-kind finds, stop in one of Park Avenue's many galleries. Timothy's Gallery, annually named a Top 100 Retailer of American Craft by NICHE magazine, offers handcrafted home décor, jewelry and gifts. At Scott Laurent Collection, bronze sculptures are the specialty. The Miller Gallery offers collectors paintings, sculpture and fine crafts by emerging artists and masters. The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, home to the world's most comprehensive collection of the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany, features a museum gift shop with a wide variety of stained glass reproductions.

Millenia Fine Art, located in Orlando and showcasing the Southeast's largest and most diverse gallery collection of museum quality modern and contemporary art, features 10,000 square feet of exhibition space.

For other artistic items, visit the gift shop at the Orlando Museum of Art, featuring art-related items reflecting the museum's permanent and temporary exhibitions. The Mennello Museum of American Art in Loch Haven Park features the nation's most extensive permanent collection of folk art by Earl Cunningham and also boasts a vast collection of works by self-taught artists. The museum gift shop features artwork and unique crafts created by Florida artists.

In downtown Orlando, several shopping areas cater to the discriminating shop-a-holic. Thornton Park features specialty stores perfect for an afternoon of exploring. And even the most experienced of antique shoppers will be impressed with the old-world treasures on Antique Row on Orange Avenue or the nearby Ivanhoe shops.

Whether you're in the market for clothing, artwork, jewelry, home décor or a few tasteful gifts for friends and family back home, Orlando offers a variety of high-end shopping options sure to please the most discriminating tastes.
