Lisa Vanderpump is known for wearing her signature shades of pink but opted for a more subdued look on Wednesday.

The veteran Beverly Hills Housewife and restaurateur threw on a timeless black dress and a pair of matching pumps while hitting up Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills.

A little retail therapy to break up her busy work week, Lisa was chic as she took a breather from her newly reopened West Hollywood bistro Pump to add to her enviable wardrobe.

The British born entrepreneur belted her black button down dress with a luxurious gold belt and added a pop of her favorite color in the form of a silky magenta camisole.

Though fully vaccinated she followed CDC protocol as she kept her face protected with a black face mask at the upscale department store. 

Boasting multiple Los Angeles restaurants including Pump, SUR, and the bar Tom Tom, Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd have had a tough year amid the pandemic like so many others.

All of their restaurants and their staff were hit hard, and and she was only able to recently open Pump a few weeks ago after settling a tax dispute which delayed the process. Lisa joyfully shared that they served 1,200 people at their first weekend brunch on March 28. 

SUR — which serves as the backdrop for hit Bravo show Vanderpump Rules — reopened following months closure in September, but had to shut down again in November per LA County’s banning of all outdoor dining. They opened again safely in February. 

Their oldest baby Villa Blanca shut its doors for good over the summer after their lease expired – the pandemic only making things tougher. 

Lisa exclusively told DailyMail.com: ‘If the landlord had been willing to renegotiate and the lease wasn’t ending, we would have reopened, but unfortunately with coronavirus, the situation was beyond our control.’

Her bar Tom Tom — which has outdoor space — is set to open by May 1 on account of new LA County regulations. The manager Richardson Cherry told The Sun that they are ‘making big changes’ and ‘working around the clock’ to get it ready for its debut. 

In addition to her hospitality ventures she has two new TV programs; Overserved,  where she invites celebrity guests to dine al-fresco at her stunning Villa Rosa mansion and Pooch Perfect, where she is a judge on the dog-grooming competition show.  

A diehard animal rights activist who also owns Vanderpump Dogs in West Hollywood, she responded to critics this week who said the show was guilty of ‘doggie abuse.’

Not standing for anything of the sorts in her laundry list of animal related philanthropy, she retweeted a post from the show’s groomer Loran Morgan who assured viewers the dogs were ‘treated like royalty.’ 

‘These dogs had the time of their lives on this show. They were treated like royalty! I treated them like they were my own. And be assured @lisavanderpump would never put her name on a show that didn’t treat animals like royalty.’
