Lenox Square
We know it's been here forever and there are plenty of new shopping centers that deserve a nod, but this has been a banner year for LENOX SQUARE.

We know it's been here forever and there are plenty of new shopping centers that deserve a nod, but this has been a banner year for LENOX SQUARE. First, the venerable retail shrine got a much-needed infusion of hipness with the opening of the first Urban Outfitters store in the Southeast (not counting south Florida). Next, while some metro malls got a big vacancy sign where their Macy's used to be, Lenox snared its very own Bloomie's to go with its already upscale mix that includes Restoration Hardware, Anthropologie, Burberry and other shit you can't afford. Hell, instead of shopping, you can just sit back and watch the weekend freakshow of Japanese tourists, free-spending gangstas, spoiled trust-fund babies and Buckhead trophy wives.

The Internet
There's only one place where you can shop naked without being arrested. And there's only one place where you can flit from a Paris boutique to a Portland bookstore within seconds. THE INTERNET, of course. Open all day, all night. All you need is some working plastic and a modem. A word of caution: Copiousmore...
There's only one place where you can shop naked without being arrested. And there's only one place where you can flit from a Paris boutique to a Portland bookstore within seconds. THE INTERNET, of course. Open all day, all night. All you need is some working plastic and a modem. A word of caution: Copious amounts of booze and Internet shopping do not mix. We've found we really don't need this Bart Simpson paperweight thingy. "Located everywhere, duh." less...

The obscenely large outlet mall consists of 140 mostly trendy stores, ranging from purveyors of apparel and shoes to toys and housewares. The high-end outlets, such as Donna Karan, Jones New York and Saks Fifth Avenue, are the main reasons to make the long journey. Where else in Georgia can you find a $300 pair of pants for $30?
