Promenada is a beautiful, resort style shopping mall located on the east side of the city.
It is conveniently located but I know some people have trouble getting so far outside the city. Interestingly enough they have a shuttle service that picks up from various parts of the city. Maybe you have seen the Promenada wrapped Song-taos?
If you haven't already, do check it out. Some great restaurants and shops, a great toy store and gigantic indoor playground for the kids, a nice movie theater that is not Major (SF Cinema) and an over abundance of coffee shops.
