    This time of year, we want to stay as far away from a mall as possible, with the crowds of people, angry shoppers and overall chaos of it all. But we were amused and instantly enlightened when we learned of a new kind of shopping experience taking place at the 900 Shops.

    Next week, from December 13-17, the shops are hosting their first annual holiday happy hour with a whole week  of beauty makeovers, exclusive giveaways and more.
    Block some time on your calendar for anytime that week from 5-7 pm, when you can score blowouts from the blow-out bar at Mario Tricoci while you sip cocktails by TZAR.
    Each day includes a  beauty bar ($15 blowouts and complimentary makeup application from Bloomingdales), free shoe shines for the men by John Allan, and a daily giveaway with enter-to-win luxury items from the 900 Shops for every $25 you spend.
    Prizes include a Michael Kors handbag and a night’s stay at the Four Seasons and UGG boots, just to name a few.
    Select retailers inside the shops will also be offering exclusive incentives and specials.
    We feel jollier about holiday shopping already.
