The Westside's coolest new non-mall has finally arrived. Following a star-studded gala last Thursday (complete with a performance by John Legend), the highly-anticipated Palisades Village made its début this past Saturday with a stylish ribbon-cutting ceremony. (Did you catch our IG Stories?)

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Councilmember Mike Bonin, and honorary Pacific Palisades mayors Billy and Janice Crystal joined developer Rick Caruso in the center's 5,500-square-foot central park for the fashionable morning festivities, which was also attended by Village boutique owners like designer Rachel Zoe, The Little Market co-founders Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla, boutique owner and stylist Elyse Walker, and celeb-faved jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer. Before shoppers and diners were officially welcomed to explore the European-inspired center, the event was capped off by local dance studio Fancy Feet and Palisades Charter High School's marching band.

Conrad and Skvarla were on hand to meet shoppers at the first brick-and-mortar location of their globally-conscious e-boutique, which empowers women artisans by stocking their handmade goods. "Having a physical space will allow consumers to directly interact with our products made by and supporting women from 28 different countries in person, which is really important to us," Skvarla tells us via email. "The Palisades Village and Pacific Palisades are very family-friendly areas and we foresee a lot of community gatherings and collaborations."

"We created The Little Market to empower women all over the world and more than fifty-percent of the tenants in Palisades Village are women-led businesses, so it felt like the perfect place to launch our first brick-and-mortar location," Conrad adds.

Zoe celebrated her namesake luxury label's retail residency at the center with the help of interior designer and stylist Simone Harouche, who worked with her friend to dream up the Hollywood Regency- and Art Deco-inspired interiors. Chic touches include black marble and gold accents, gold sconces and a statement chandelier by Circa Lighting, furnishings from One Kings Lane and Living Spaces, and greenery from Mickey Hargitay Plants.

Open through spring 2019, the 1,300-square-foot space stocks Zoe's clothing collection alongside vintage pieces found from her global travels, treasures from her own personal archive, and her seasonal subscription Box of Style. It's not the first time Zoe has brought her Studio 54-worthy style to a Caruso property; her first pop-up shop landed at The Grove two years ago.

"The Palisades Village is truly an outdoor shopping dream in one of the most beautiful communities in Los Angeles. I have such profound respect for Rick Caruso and the chance to be a part of his newest endeavor was really an opportunity of a lifetime," Zoe tells us. "We are in such amazing company being amongst so many inspirational women designers that also happen to be my close friends. I have always dreamt of opening a boutique that truly exemplifies the Rachel Zoe brand and this was the perfect location to finally bring the collection to life."

Other noteworthy openings include the first-ever standalone boutiques for Jennifer Meyer (whose luxe accoutrements are beloved by A-listers like Reese Witherspoon, Amandla Stenberg, Kristen Bell, and many other leading ladies) and fashionable fitness retailer Carbon38 as well as the West Coast retail débuts of New York wellness apothecary Botanica Bazaar, global-cool decor and textile brand St. Frank, and beauty giant Sephora's curated Studio concept shop.

Itching to literally live steps away from the stylish development's retail therapy and restos? You can ditch Postmates and come home to Palisades Villages' one of eight two-bedroom apartments, which range in square footage from 1,633 to 2,524 and include parking, a private terrace, and courtyard. (You'll have to shoot a note to the leasing manager if you're curious about rents.)

Expect even more additions to the al fresco shopping and dining district; in the meantime, scroll through the gallery above to see scenes from last weekend's grand opening party, see below for the latest lineup, and stay tuned for more.
