It’s no secret that Nashville, TN, is a popular travel destination. And while country music and honky tonks have their place on your itinerary, so does a visit to The Mall at Green Hills, a high-end shopping hot spot in the covetable Green Hills neighborhood. Special perks like their Passport to Shopping and complimentary valet parking are just the start of the amenities that are offered to shoppers. Here is a complete list of perks that guests can enjoy on each and every visit to The Mall at Green Hills.

2. Security at The Mall at Green Hills is on duty 24/7. Can’t see yourself needing security? Let’s say you just bought the Artsy MM in Marine Rogue Monogram Empreinte Leather that you have been eyeing at Louis Vuitton and do not want to lug it through the mall and out to your car. You’ll be happy to have their number. Program (615) 297-8132 in your cell phone, and call security anytime you need a ride to your car, an escort to the new Dillard’s or even jumper cables!
3. Most stores offer complimentary water bottles. Many others, like OMEGA, Venetian Nail Spa, David Yurman, Stuart Weitzman, Burberry and Tiffany & Co., offer free champagne and wine to sip while you shop. No one wants to shop with a parched palate!
4. Jewelry cleaning is free. Save the time and hassle of cleaning your jewelry pieces and bring them to those with an intimate knowledge of each brand. Retailers like David Yurman, Tiffany & Co., Brighton Collectibles and Pandora will gladly clean your jewelry from their respective store as you shop for more.

They’ll even pick up the phone next season when you change your mind and decide you want more French/coastal/contemporary rather than Art Deco with a hint of mid-century modern.
11. Enjoy curbside delivery. Reallllly craving the sinfully delicious Chicken Bellagio from The Cheesecake Factory but don’t want to find a parking space and walk into the restaurant in your jammies? No problem! Park in one of their designated “Curbside” spaces, and they’ll bring it right out to you. No judgment on the jammies. Carrabba’s Italian Grill offers the same service.

This mall is the exception.
One of the best-kept secrets in town is The Mall at Green Hills on a weekday evening. The pinks and blues of the Nashville sunset stream through the skylights casting a comfortable calm.
Relax. Take a little longer. Go in one more store. Your busy world can wait.
This is about you.
