Traditionally, Fall is a time to pause and reflect on all the hard work undertaken throughout the year. This is a time of harvest festivals, holidays, family gatherings, and thanksgivings. This is a time to think back on what we’ve experienced over the changing seasons and a moment to prepare for the year ahead. At Midway, we are so glad we can be a part of this most magical time of the year. From our many new shops and eateries to our expansive new Districts, we are thrilled to share all that we’ve accomplished this year and all that lies ahead in this issue of District by Midway

Join us as we celebrate this Fall. From holidays to simple weekends out and about, treat every day as an occasion. We’re here for your anniversary meals, drinks with friends, holiday shopping, and self-care spa days. We know the spot to stay before the game and where to eat afterwards. We know where you can find the perfect gift for that special someone or the spot to indulge in a treat for yourself. Celebrate another passing year. You deserve it!

In this issue of District by Midway, you’ll find out about all the fun events you won’t want to miss this season. You’ll see what’s next for us in the coming year and make plans for making the most of this Fall. Fashion, cuisine, culture, and entertainment—you’ll find it here.

GAME ON

Fashion and football—a timeless Texas tradition.

No doubt about it, football is one of our favorite sports in Texas, but what should you wear on game day? We traveled into the heart of Aggieland to the boutiques at College Station’s Century Square to see the notable styles this football season. This isn’t just for Aggie fans, though—these styles transcend fan factions, offering options for any football fashionistas.

Since it’s hot as all get-out this time of year, it’s a good idea to play it cool. Throw on a pair of shorts and a lightweight top, slip into a pair of cowboy boots, and you’re good to go. But if your wardrobe is missing a few crucial pieces, or you’re just looking for a way to show some team spirit this fall, we can point you in the right direction.

The trendiest styles in College Station can be found when you head over to Grass Stains , where they've got everything you need to walk down the Kyle Field aisles in style. With flirty dresses and fun tops, this is a one-stop shop for whatever style you choose. Here, you will be greeted by eye-catching shorts in different styles and brands, including an

exclusive line of Hammies, a line of retro corduroy shorts that can’t be found anywhere else in Texas. If fast fashion isn’t your thing, kick it old school with their repurposed Wranglers and all the thoughtful denim pieces from Moussy. From hair accessories to stylish shoes, Grass Stains keeps you staying cool while looking hot from head to toe.

True fans know by now that you need a clear bag to stash your stuff if you’re going to a game, and at King Ranch Saddle Shop in Century Square, you’ll find them embellished with maroon (whoop!) canvas. Want to personalize your bag? Ask them to monogram your purchase. Quail Western Snap Shirts in Brick are popular with guys looking to sport that famous maroon color, and Gameguard microfiber shirts keep you cool as a cucumber when it’s hot as blazes out there.

Galleria Spa, Salon, and Boutique is Century Square’s hairstyle headquarters, featuring some of the best stylists and barbers in the city to get your locks ready for that big game. Come in for a blowout or book a manicure with football designs sure to

“catch” some attention. OPI Bogota Blackberry and OPI Funny Bunny come as close to maroon and white as it gets. While you wait for those pretty new nails to dry, wander over to the in-store boutique where you’ll find straps for your clear bag that spell HOWDY in maroon and white beads. This spot really covers you from head to toe in enviable Aggie style.

Are you more classic style? You can’t go wrong with a short skirt or vintage denim shorts and a pair of cowboy boots. Lucchese Bootmaker at Century Square has a wide selection of boots handmade in Texas by master artisans. During football season, they offer special-order game-day boots with the A&M logo on the front. The Elena, a short suede boot that comes in burgundy is the perfect boot for a fashion focused girl who still wants to show off that western flair. For women who love a traditional western look, try the tan Savannah with a 12” shaft in burnished mad dog goat or ranch hand cowhide and an iconic Lucchese stitch design. The knee-high Priscilla offers an even balance between cowgirl chic and timeless flair. Ask for it in Glitz Cream, a great neutral shade that goes with everything.

At Hemline in Century Square, you’ll find cut-off shorts, flirty dresses and graphic tees plus a range of stylish accessories from jewelry and sunglasses to messenger bags and hats. Jeffrey Campbell’s Western mid-calf Orville Boots in pink or silver with fringe detail give the classic cowboy boot a run for its money.

Accessories can make or break any outfit, and you’ll find a huge collection of earrings, bracelets, rings, and necklaces, all at affordable prices, at Kendra Scott in Century Square. Each piece is crafted in their Austin studio utilizing natural gemstones and natural materials, including genuine stone and shell. The custom HOWDY necklace is the perfect accessory you can wear on gameday or as an easy piece to fancify your fit for class. While you’re there, visit the Color Bar where they’ll help you design a piece of jewelry custom for you, unlike any other. Heads up, Aggie fans: a maroon gemstone is available exclusively at this location.

Solidify your spot as the cutest girl at the tailgate when you pair Merge Boutique’s fringe booties or embroidered stitch cowboy boots with their stylish shorts. This Century Square staple lets you ditch traditional denim for their White High Rise Distressed Shorts. Or swap the shorts for a denim skirt with Aztec Detail for a more feminine look. They’ve also got a large selection of t-shirts and tops, allowing for maximum comfort with maximum style. For game day, we love the “Never Lost a Tailgate” tee in maroon, of course.

At Onward Reserve , the motto is “Live authentically.” That means that every piece of clothing they produce is inspired by authentic stories and memories with best friends or family. Stop by the store at Century Square and check out the performance polos—some sporting a Reveille logo—which wick moisture away from the body and provide ultraviolet sun protection. Also in store is a large selection of gameday gear sporting the Texas A&M logo, including graphic tees, polos, and hats.

No matter where your gameday loyalties lie, the hottest new fashions are waiting for you at Century Square, the best shopping College Station has to offer. f

Fit for a Football Feast

Where to watch the game with the best bites .

s much fun as it is to watch Texas’s favorite pastime live, there are plenty of great spots to take in a game in the comfort of fine hospitality. Sometimes it’s even more fun to watch in high definition with a killer cocktail accompanied by some delicious dishes. Next time you can’t get tickets to the big game, watch the action at these great spots across Midway’s Districts.

You can almost hear the gameday crowd from Century Square’s Mo’s Irish Pub, but you’d be hard pressed to find scratch-made, inventive Irish American fare at Kyle Field. On the weekends you can also find live music.

In Fall of 2022, Tom’s Watch Bar will open their first Houston location at GreenStreet. The ultimate gameday destination, its huge main event screen can be seen all across the bar, and its hundreds of other screens make sure you won’t miss a sporting event anywhere in the world.

With more than 100 beers on tap, a full kitchen, and both weekday and late-night weekend happy hours, Yard House at CITYCENTRE is the perfect spot to watch the Texans, the Astros, or your team of choice.

The only thing more Texas than football is beef, and the two pair together fantastically at Hopdoddy Burger Bar at CITYCENTRE or Century Square. A Texas original, you won’t have burgers made with fresher ingredients anywhere.

Maybe you like watching the game at home, but your grilling skills aren’t quite up to big-league standards. Grab some to-go for your next gameday gathering at one of these great restaurants across the Districts.

Set up a Tex-Mex taco bar with catering from Cyclone Anaya’s at CITYCENTRE, Juanita’s Tex-Mex Cantina at Century Square, or Guadalajara del Centro at GreenStreet.

Sometimes it’s best to stick with the classics—everyone loves a little pizza while watching a game. Order in from Grimaldi’s at CITYCENTRE or let everyone pick their own customized personal pizza at Blaze Pizza at Century Square.

Don’t forget dessert with sweet treats from Tiff’s Treats , SWEET, and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at CITYCENTRE or let the kids go wild at Hey Sugar in Century Square.

If it’s a gameday down in College Station, make a reservation to treat your whole crew to a fancy dinner after a victory at PORTERS Dining + Butcher, one of the finest steakhouses Texas has to offer.

When the Saturday games are over, you might need to refuel on Sunday morning. Try some crepes from Sweet Paris or a chicken and waffle with signature Maple Aioli from Mess Waffles f

WANNA GET AWAY?

The Best Spots to Touchdown for Football Weekends—or Anytime.

hen you’re headed to the Home of the 12th man in College Station, make sure you stay at these fun Century Square spots that makes you feel like a champion. Or maybe you’re bound for Houston to see the Astros, Texans, or Rockets—The Moran at CITYCENTRE is the perfect home base for Houston sport enthusiasts. Remember, these great digs make for a memorable visit even after the playoffs.

In the heart of Aggieland, almost in the shadow of Kyle Field, Century Square boasts two top-notch destinations to lay down your head after cheering on the Aggies.

The George is a luxurious, four-star, 162-room boutique hotel that pairs a timeless elegance with a distinctive charm that is all Texas. After you get your boots shined in the lobby, enjoy fine cocktails and a curated wine list at the 1791 Whiskey Bar

Just a stone’s throw away is Cavalry Court , another concept on rustic luxury. Located on four beautiful acres, the amenities include a pool, lawn games, fire pits, and complimentary bicycles. Cavalry Court’s on site Canteen Bar & Grill is the spot to be for live music, delicious food, and refreshing drinks.

In partnership with Century Square, both hotels offer a gameday shuttle to Kyle Field for any hotel guests or visitors to Century Square. Enjoy the game and then ride the shuttle back to let the fun continue. Experience the best dining, and retail options College Station has to offer before retiring to the luxury of your room or the hotel pools.

After football season ends, the good times at these hotels continue. Cavalry Court offers live music in their Courtyard year-round on Fridays and Saturdays, and there’s music to be heard at The George on Saturdays. Reserve a Pool Cabana at Cavalry Court when you’re planning for a class reunion, a family event, or to really elevate tailgating on game day weekends.

When you’re taking a trip to Houston for a game, or any kind of getaway, be sure to book a room at The Moran at CITYCENTRE. There you’ll find luxurious rooms, live music, and great food and drink—all in the heart of Houston. Keep the athletics going by enjoying The Moran’s pool and close proximity to parks and championship golf course. This is the place to be—before, after, even during the game! f

9 DISTRICT by Midway

Have you always wanted to experience the sights and sounds of Oktoberfest? Can you almost see the beads of condensation trickling down a freshly pulled pilsner as the laughter of friends and family rings out among the pleasant cacophony of a jovial crowd and live music? Living it up at a biergarten sounds a little more enticing than more yardwork or watching the game at home, doesn’t it? This fall, you can experience this and more with two unique football, food, and drink experiences for friends and families with Biergartens at Century Square in College Station (September 3 to November 27) and at CITYCENTRE in Houston (October 1 and 2). Catch a game on the big screens, have a picnic with food and drinks from local vendors, or dance along to live music.

At the Biergarten at Century Square in College Station, you’ll be close enough to hear the cheers from Kyle Field. Picnic tables and umbrellas will spread out across The Green for the entire college football season, from September 3 to November 27. Kids can wander around The Green as mom and dad reunite with old friends while enjoying brews and food from local vendors. When it gets time to eat, visit Hopdoddy and grab a Llano Poblano burger and a Brazos Valley Brewing Mama Tried IPA to enjoy on The Green. If you are feeling adventurous, go for a Roadie (half gallon bag) of frozen margaritas! Not in the mood for burgers? Order tacos from Juanita’s Tex Mex Cantina or a pie from Blaze Pizza , which also pair perfectly with a cold beer. For the kids or anyone else with a sweet tooth, Sweet Paris has delicious crêpes, and you can’t beat a decadent cone of Lick Ice Creams . Other restaurants and bars include, Mess Waffles , PORTERS , Piada , Mo’s Irish Pub, CAVA , Velvet Taco, and Harvest Coffee Bar Fellowship and food with friends and family is always fun, but add Texas’s favorite pastime, and you’ve got a weekend to remember. All SEC Texas A&M away games will be shown on four 85” televisions to keep everyone entertained. When halftime comes around, take a

stroll in the fresh fall air around Century Square. The Biergarten will be the perfect place for pregame, mid game, and post-game fun. To make everyone's life easier, there will be shuttles to and from Kyle Field three hours before games, during the game, and three hours after games. For friends and family who are not into football, there will be live music on the weekends as well, with bands on Friday and Saturday night from 7-10 pm, depending on Aggie KickOff, and Sunday mornings 11 am-2 pm, making The Century Square Biergarten an ideal spot for Sunday brunch.

The festivities don’t stop in College Station. Football fans headed to Houston can enjoy CITYCENTRE’s first Biergarten on October 1 and 2. The Biergarten will feature picnic tables and umbrellas for dining and drinking in the plaza. A giant 23-foot screen will stream football games on Saturday and Sunday. Sip Oktoberfest-inspired beverages from The Moran Hotel and order food to go from many of the nearby restaurants. These include Yard House , bellagreen , Brio Italian Grille , and Daily Gather, as well as restaurants throughout CITYCENTRE only a commercial break’s walk away. Save room for dessert from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams or an espresso from Fellini Gelato & Caffe. Afterwards, keep the fun going throughout Houston at bars downtown at GreenSteet, like House of Blues and Pete's Dueling Piano Bar, and Dish Society in Memorial Green, with local craft beers from Saint Arnold, Eureka Heights, 8th Wonder, and more.

Join the fun this fall in College Station and Houston. Whether you're taking a break from shopping or warming up for an A&M game, these Biergarten experiences will be the perfect place for relaxing with family and drinking a cool one with friends. y

“We are so excited about the launch of our new Live concept in Houston with the opening of Nike by CITYCENTRE,” said Shannon Glass, VP/GM Nike Direct North America. “Our Live concept serves as the ultimate retail destination to inspire women, and this store delivers what our consumers love most–our best offerings in Lifestyle and Performance apparel and footwear, a refreshed bras and leggings shopping experience, and convenient services like digital returns and Buy Online Pickup In Store (BOPIS). All powered by Nike Membership, customers will have access to exclusive member-only product drops and experiences that can be unlocked through the Nike App, providing a seamless shopping journey across our stores as well as our digital and app ecosystems.”

Nike Live by CITYCENTRE will also serve as Houston’s physical nexus for Nike’s substantial online ecosystem that already boasts the Nike App, Nike Run Club, Nike Training Club, and the SNKRS App, which includes its SNKRS Pass members reward system that alerts users to reserve select Nike sneakers for in-store purchase and pick-up.

By analyzing local customers’ preferences, Nike was able to pinpoint Houston as one of the country’s leading markets for Jordan products. As such, the CITYCENTRE location features a particular focus on sportsstyle items such as Tech Fleece and Jordan apparel, along with footwear lines like Air Force 1’s, Air Max 90’s, Blazers, and retro Jordans series. Combined with their fleet of apps, shoppers can check real-time store inventories using GPS location, order via their smartphone devices, and pick up either in-store or curbside.

“By creating these multiple, digitally enabled consumer touchpoints throughout the Houston metro area, we’re shaping a digitally fueled marketplace locally that offers more choice and accessibility to the Nike brand than ever before,” the company explains in an announcement.

Houston’s new Nike hub also pays particular attention to women consumers in the region, offering them one-on-one consultations with expert “store athletes” (sales associates) for everyday needs like bra fittings, consultations, and style suggestions. Although Nike Live by CITYCENTRE is geared slightly more towards sports-style customers, women’s favorites like the store’s diverse selection of leggings will serve as a jumping-off point for future tailored inventories designed specifically for the local community.

Houston’s new curated Nike collection at CITYCENTRE joins a rapidly expanding chain of modernized, personalized Nike Live locations in cities like Austin, Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, and Atlanta, with many more to come. In CITYCENTRE, visitors can expect an entirely new level of shopping experience for all their Nike wants and needs. p

LOOK OUT HOUSTON,

There’s a New Golf Course in Town

With a beautiful design and terrific location , the new East River 9 golf course and Riverhouse Houston restaurant are teeing off this Fall

17 DISTRICT by Midway

layton Freels is passionate about bettering Houston.

Take in the view of his hometown's skyline from the first tee, and you’ll see how he’s succeeded. Graced with a view of the city that is novel to most Houstonians, the stunning new par 3 golf makes a must-see destination out of land that has long been neglected. Freels’s vision brings life to a part of town many had written off.

The real estate and development executive is spearheading Houston’s newest entertainment destination with East River 9 golf course and accompanying Riverhouse Houston restaurant, both of which are part of the master-planned East River development, located on the largest undeveloped tract of land inside the 610 loop.

“The entire East River site is nearly the size of 60 downtown blocks,” Freels says, who determined early on that an approachable golf course and familyfriendly restaurant would be a good way to appeal to Houstonians, many of whom, he notes, may never travel east of Minute Maid Park.

“We are creating an outdoor, recreational use on an old, industrial site,” says Freels. “I love that it will bring people together.”

The site used to be the corporate headquarters of Brown and Root, a

Texas construction company founded in 1919. The new restaurant will be based in the metal structure of an old warehouse maintenance building.

“We’ll be incorporating original timbers and rails into the décor to celebrate some of that history,” Freels explains.

Freels’s vision for what would come next incorporates some of that history, but with a vision of a spot where families and friends can enjoy this beautiful part of Houston that was until now undeveloped and underutilized. Replacing the undeveloped tract of land will be the only public 9-hole golf course inside the 610 loop. East River 9 opens up this part of town so its residents can more fully enjoy the wonderful view of the city and river. Right within reach, folks will be able to play a nighttime round of golf and then enjoy a nice dinner afterwards.

Local golf course architect Michael Smelek and his son Bobby of Smelek Design—renowned for their designs and restorations of top-rated courses around the world—were brought in on the nine-hole, par-three course design.

“They’re fantastic to work with,” says Freels, explaining that the course design has enough natural topography to make it challenging for golfers.

Every hole is designed with two tees— each at a different length, direction, and elevation—so players can also have an

outstanding 18-hole experience. “East River 9 will be a fun course for the beginner as well as the experienced player,” adds Freels.

Family-Friendly All Day… And Evening, Too

With the golf course design, Freels wants to minimize the impact on the environment. From transplanting trees, including live oaks, red oaks, and crape myrtles, to generating energy from solar and wind power and using the untreated water from the Buffalo Bayou as an irrigation source for the golf course, East River 9 is committed to “going green,” he says. (Pun intended.)

“We’ve also been working with Houston Audubon,” he adds. “They’ve helped us select native grasses to plant at the golf course that will attract migratory birds and also benefit the natural wildlife along the bayou.”

Early on in the design stage, it was decided to incorporate LED stadium lights so that golfers could enjoy evening play. Imagine leaving work, playing a round at East River 9 to unwind, and catching a bite to eat and drink at Riverhouse. Not a bad way to spend a week night!

“That’s great for the winter days when evenings come early, but even on a hot

summer day, you may want to wait to tee off until it’s cooler,” he explains. And what could be better than teeing off as the sun begins to set over an unobstructed panorama of downtown Houston? And if you and the family want to do more than play golf, there will also be six new pickleball courts and a kids playscape.

The Riverhouse Houston restaurant will focus on family fare—everything from tacos to Buffalo wings to burgers, heavy on appetizers and sharable plates; an impressive selection of beer, wine, and spirits will round out the menu. A large, covered dining area will comfortably seat 250 people, with an area for musicians and entertainers to perform, as well as a parking lot that accommodates more than 200 vehicles.

While East River 9 and Riverhouse have not yet fully marketed the venue’s potential for events, Freels reports that there are ten corporate and private events planned for when the course opens officially this fall.

“What’s really remarkable is that you’re only a mile from downtown,” he says, “and yet you feel like you’re in the hill country.” f

A WINE FOR TEXAS TASTES

On a family trip to California, John Whitehurst found himself trying to open a bottle of wine without a corkscrew. By MacGyvering some unconventional tools, he finally popped the cork out. Impressed by his handiwork, his brother-in-law remarked, “You’re like a sommelier, John.” John’s wife misheard him and thought he said, “You’re a Sauvignon John.” Laughter ensued, but John and Carly had the sparks of an idea.

Returning to Houston, where John worked in banking and Carly works as a schoolteacher, the Whitehursts began doing some research. They found that there was a gap in the market for wine. Consumers could buy an eight-dollar wine that tasted like it costs, or a forty-dollar wine, which was a little pricey for some consumers. They sought to fill that gap in the market— to produce quality wine in the twenty-dollar range.

They were also passionate about producing a wine with broad appeal that met Texas tastes. “We’re in Texas. It’s hot nine or ten months a year here. We want something that’s going to be refreshing,” John Whitehurst said.

After many research trips to Napa, after developing a business plan in Houston, and after hundreds of calls with wine brokers, the Whitehursts began with a small batch of two varietals. Within a month of their launch date, they’d sold out every last bottle. Sauvignon John has continued to grow from there. They now offer Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and a Rosé.

One of the ways Sauvignon John keeps their price down is by doing all their own distribution. They also handle their innovative social media presence, where they welcome input and feedback from customers. Some bottles of the wine feature a QR code on the label leading to a curated Spotify playlist.

You can find their wines on the wine list at these locations across Midway’s Districts. At CITYCENTRE: Daily Gather, The Moran, Yi Peng Thai Dining. At Memorial Green: Dish Society, Jonathan’s the Rub. At GreenStreet: The Palm. At Century Square: PORTER’s, Juanita’s Tex-Mex, Sweet Paris, and Cavalry Court. Sauvignon John also ships anywhere in Texas. o sauvignonjohn.com

Gift an evening of relaxation with the soothing Capri Blue volcano candle and a calming set of eucalyptus and mint shower steamers.

“Home” for the Holidays

Make that holiday homecoming a relaxing vacation .

Everyone loves coming home for the holidays, especially when life and careers have taken us far from family. It’s a chance to get together and spend quality time—just like in the old days.

However, as families grow and change, the logistics of the trip home also change. With the addition of babies and fur babies, those holiday stays can sometimes get a little chaotic.

Ideally, you’d spend the day with loved ones and then steal away for some “you” time. The festive atmosphere at The Moran at CITYCENTRE or the historic elegance of The Laura at GreenStreet will make you feel at home when home is full of family!

Both The Moran and The Laura are in the heart of Houston—take an urban escape from those in-laws, and experience Christmastime in the city! Make that holiday homecoming feel like a relaxing getaway. After spending time with the family, come back to The Moran and treat yourself to the fine cocktails, curated wine, and small plates at the Fireside Lounge or a taste of the Mediterranean at Radio Milano. At The Laura, enjoy creative

cocktails with a breathtaking view of downtown Houston. Take a break from family meals with the curated menus at Happenings or a taste of Texas at Hull & Oak . Both hotels have spas to treat yourself after a long day with the family.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN

23

Fall in love with these great finds for fall in fashion, home décor and more.

From what we saw on the runways for fall, fashion is all over the place this season. It’s almost like designers were on Team Yin or Team Yang. Diaphanous fabrics in lighter colors, say, pink or lavender, floated down the runway, while take-no-prisoners red leather dresses, jumpsuits and skirts had a distinctly ’80s vibe. Speaking of the ’80s, it looks like we haven’t seen the last of the bold-shoulder trend for both men and women. Meanwhile, Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta and Valentino sent models down the catwalk in neon-bright colors, while at Etro, Givenchy and Michael Kors, it was back in black all the way. Just about everyone did some version of the basic white tee or tank. Slip dresses were embellished with crystals and sequins at Botega Veneta, while Saint Laurent sent models down the runway in feminine ankle-

skimming dresses. Expect to see cropped leather jackets and bombers and reimagined trench coats in store this season, too.

Home décor seems to have taken its cue from the ’70s when earth tones were all the rage. Oh, and patterned wallpaper is making a comeback in a big way. Plush, cozy textures, textiles that are nubby or furry, subtle colors and soft-edged pieces are all right on trend. If minimalism isn’t your thing, take comfort in the fact that layers and textures are in again. Mix things up by papering the walls, painting the walls one shade and the trim in a contrasting color, or playing with patterns. Light wood and clean lines lend a zen-like vibe to any room, but don’t count traditional design out just yet. Ornate mirrors, velvet chairs and even sofas with fringe along the cushions are making a comeback.

Shop Anthropologie in CITYCENTRE for everything from fashion to home décor—dinner plates, tumblers, bowls, flatware, candles, benches, baskets and so much more. Right on trend this season are the Textured Marta Pillow, the Woven Bronte Pillow and the Tasseled Teague Cotton-Linen Pillow. Carry the trend right on into the bedroom with the Textured Marisol Quilt and Shams. Warning: You might never want to get out of bed.

There is so much to see and do at Sur La Table in CITYCENTRE. Cook up a fun-filled date night with one of their hands-on classes. Classes change seasonally so check the website for details. Or stock your pantry with everything from olive oil and balsamic vinegar to Texas-Style BBQ sauce. You’ll find exclusive tabletop additions like All-Clad nonstick skillets, Le Creuset Signature Round Dutch Ovens and a Sur La Table Stainless Steel French Whisk so you can make like Julia Child right in your own kitchen.

Urban Outfitters , CITYCENTRE, the chain with a hipster vibe known for on-trend fashions and quirky home décor carries a well-curated mix of on-trend women’s and men’s clothes, from boho, denim and graphic tees to jeans, dresses and vintage items. Now that cozy textures and plush fabrics are trending for fall, why not give your bedroom a refresh. Head over to the bedding department where you’ll find an incredible selection of comfy duvet covers, sheets, quilts and throw blankets. We know you don’t want your fur babies to feel left out so make sure to check out the statement-making pet beds.

At West Elm , CITYCENTRE, everything is responsibly sourced and expertly crafted. The Cozy Swivel Chair in shearling is right on trend with its rounded edges and a range of neutral colors to choose from. Add color and texture to any room with one of their patterned rugs. Handcrafted in Peru using a centuries-old technique once used to carve religious sculptures, their Peruvian Starburst Mirrors will instantly dress up any wall space.

Altar’d State in CITYCENTRE stocks a huge collection of cute and comfy clothes, including a variety of trending items that change seasonally. With hemlines dropping this fall, the Springvale Maxi Dress in black is right on trend. We can’t say enough about the vast selection of fun and quirky accessories: boots, beaded watch bands, monogram initial necklaces, girly trucker hats, sling bags, totes, sunglasses and retro roller skates that are so fun and funky they’ll put a smile on your face.

If you like your décor to make a big, bold statement, Z Gallerie , CITYCENTRE, is your kind of store, from the Leon Coronado Plaque (a matte black lion with an ornate metallic gold crown) to the Sequoia Coffee Table cast from the roots of an Acacia tree. Sofas, sectionals, and chairs come in luxe fabrics, including velvet, which is right on trend this fall. Take advantage of the free design services and make every day glamorous, one room at a time.
