One of our favorite things about Palm Desert is the shopping....surprise, surprise. El Paseo is known as the "Rodeo Drive of the desert"- that should tell you what you need to know. Here you can find something for everyone (all price ranges): Saks, J.Crew, Kate Spade, Lululemon, Gucci, Banana Republic, etc. This year we ventured into Palm Springs as well, which had some amazing shopping as well. We were hoping to check out all of the vintage stores but didn't get the chance this trip, but if you know of any great ones let us know!
Three of our favorites stores from the trip are Mister Marcus, Trina Turk and Distinctive Home.
Kate got the yellow Thakoon Addition dress, while Kelley brought home this black M. Patmos dress.
Mister Marcus is a wonderful store full of hard-to-find labels and great European designer clothing. There is a great selection of novelty jeans here- our mom purchased a pair of Goldsign brown leather jeans which are amazing. They have great bags, jewelry, shoes, sunglasses and other accessories as well. There is literally something for everyone. The owner Robert couldn't be nicer and is not only extremely helpful but very fashionable. The store is named for his son Marcus, and if you are lucky you will stop by when one of his four dogs are visiting! We are kicking ourselves for not buying that silver necklace on the mannequin- we may just have to call out there and buy it.
We just happened into the Trina Turk store in Palm Springs by chance and we are so glad we did. The lady working there told us that the store was designed by Kelly Wearstler, which explains the chic decor. It also worked out to our advantage that there was an unbelievable sale going on while we were there. Seriously insane.
While we were walking to Trina Turk we stumbled across Distinctive Home. We would do anything to have one of these in Charlotte. This store is full of things for the bar and entertaining. Plus great lamps, throws, furniture and mirrors. Definitely stop by here for any entertaining needs or hostess gifts, or just a little something to update your home.
