5 Things to Do This Spring at West Acres
Take a look through some of the fun ways you can step into spring at West Acres!
Springtime around West Acres means our stores are filled with fresh fashion, beautiful flowers brighten up our outdoor planters, rays of sunshine beam in through our skylights, and there is a whole list of new ways to celebrate the season! From finding new looks to love to endless exciting events, here are 5 ways you can step into spring at West Acres…
1. Refresh For Spring
Between the bold colors and prints to chic new styles, spring fashion is hard to beat. As we eagerly replace our coats and snow boots with sundresses and sandals, we’re keeping you up-to-date with the newest trends, must-have styles, and can’t-miss sales. Take to our blog to get a weekly glimpse of the newest arrivals in our stores, and follow us on Instagram to see try-on videos from fitting rooms, help us piece together outfits from our stores, and learn tips and tricks for your most stylish spring ever.
2. Step Into Spring
Walking our halls means truly stepping into spring! Get into the spirit of spring with brand new installations and activations throughout the mall! Check out these can’t miss spaces…
MORPH II: Body of Abstract
Located in Buffalo Court, now through mid-May. “A remarkable sculpture experience through a team-built exhibition of dynamic proportions. The exhibit is built on the imagination of 25 abstract artists’ sculptural re-purpose of by-gone mannequin pieces. Each piece was painted independently by an artist and the sculptural groupings were created when the painted pieces were reunited. The ‘sum of the abstract mannequin parts’ creates a juxtaposition to the traditional use of mannequins; and promotes a dialogue on the vast cultural norms of body and beauty.”
Springtime Fountain Installation
Spring comes to life with this larger than life installation created by local artist, Emily Williams-Wheeler. With 4-foot, 3-D flowers hanging above, you can’t help but stop and stare.
Spring Celebration in Center Court
If you’ve seen the beautiful installations in Fountain Court over the past year, you know how mesmerizing the masterful work of Love Always Floral is. This spring, they’re moving their talents over to our Center Court in front of Macy’s, for a colorful installation that will incorporate whimsical ribbons and bright colors that are undeniably springy. We can’t wait to celebrate spring with exciting events under this colorful masterpiece.

Apricot Lane – New Location
Apricot Lane is moving three doors down! With a fresh, modern design and the ability to provide a curated collection of styles and experiences for their customers, we’ve never been more excited to see an update from one of our stores. Stay tuned for details on an opening day event!
Real Good Bath & Body
We’ve loved having locally owned and created, Real Good Bath & Body, as part of the mall. We’ve fallen in love with their all-natural body care to their DIY bath salt stations. Although their pop-up shop is coming to an end, they’re not going anywhere! Look for their brand new cart within our hallways starting late March.
The Food Court just got a whole lot sweeter! Locally owned & operated, Ice Point is now open & serving up Thai style hibachi ice cream, bubble tea, fruit tea, and smoothies.
