Sanny, you can buy a ticket from Interlaken Ost to Venice from the Swiss on www.sbb.ch. No direct runs possible. You will change trains at Spiez and Milano Centrale for certain and possibly Brig or Domodossola. The trip will take close to 8 hours. Unfortunately, you won't be able to buy the tickets on the Swiss train website until your travel is within 30 days. From Spiez to Milan, you will be on Eurocity trains which are quite fast. From Milan to Venezia Santa Lucia, you will be on a very fast FRECCI train.

Sanny A very quick google search for your mall (I'd never heard of it before) shows that it is just north of the Italian border much closer to Milan than any major Swiss city. It is certainly nowhere near either Interlaken nor Zurich. By train it is well over 5 hours from Interlaken and over 3 hours from Zurich, each way.

Since it is on the way to Venice, you may want to book a train to Mendrisio and spend the night. You will have a place to stow your luggage and shop at your leisure. Then you are only 1 hour from Milano Centrale and your connection to a fast train to Venice.
