A fashionista’s dream, just minutes from our apartments in New Albany

If you’re a gal (or guy for that matter) who loves to shop until you drop, then you’ll fall in love with Polaris Fashion Place. There are plenty of shopping options for men and women alike, and even some great places for the kids.

When it comes to women’s fashion, Polaris has the best. Find yourself a party dress at Express or Forever 21. Grab some comfy summer clothes at Charlotte Russe or H&M. And if you’re looking for high-powered office wear to look sharp at work, look no further than Chico’s and J. Crew. But that’s not all. Polaris carries Coach, Chico’s, Victoria’s Secret, and other high-style brands. New Moms: if you’re expecting a baby in your life, hit up Destination Maternity, for all the clothes you need to stay comfortable during your pregnancy.

The options at Polaris are also impressive for men. Men can grab some high-quality shoes at Allen Edmonds, fit themselves in a tuxedo at American Commodore Tuxedo, or purchase some much-needed shaving gear at Art of Shaving. Athletic men can check out Dick’s Sporting Goods, or shop right alongside their wives at Express Men.

Polaris is also a great place to shop for kids! Stop by Gymboree or Janie & Jack for high-quality children’s clothing. Bring your little girl to Justice for some trendy garments she’ll love or indulge your gamer kids in a trip to GameStop, where they can find their favorite video games and consoles.

We hope you come hungry!

Here at Polaris, the dining options are wonderful. Whether you’re looking for a light snack or a fancy date night dinner, Polaris has everything you need.

Grab the infamous Auntie Anne’s Pretzels to curb your appetite while you shop or grab a seasonal Frappuccino at Starbucks. If you’re looking for a light lunch, there’s always Potbelly Sandwiches, Chick-Fil-A, or Subway. Looking for a sit-down dinner with the entire family? You’re sure to love Brio Tuscan Grille, who serves up authentic Italian cuisine in a warm and family-friendly environment. Other options include The Cheesecake Factory, Red Lobster, or The Olive Garden (because who doesn’t swoon over those breadsticks?)

Looking for a fancy dinner out on the town? Mitchell’s Steakhouse is a great date night option, and so is Molly Woo’s, where you can enjoy Asian fare in a beautiful environment. From their website, “With red lanterns, Asian artifacts, high ceilings, and dramatically flavored Pan-Asian Cuisine, this place reverberates with the incredible energy and big flavors of all things Asia.” We think you just found your next date night idea. Our mouths are watering already.

Events for the whole family at Polaris Fashion Place

There are plenty of gatherings and events for families to enjoy live music, comedy, film, and more. Around Christmas time, take the kids to visit Santa, or take them for Story Time and kids crafts and activities at Pottery Barn Kids.

If you’re more of the ‘grab a beer’ type, than enjoy some live music from local musicians at The Brass Tap every Friday and Saturday night, or hit up trivia night every Wednesday with a craft beer in hand.
