Buying new outfits for Spring

Spring is in the air and the Spring holidays of Easter, Passover, St. Patrick’s day and, of course, all the Pisces birthday celebrations require new outfits and gifts.

Those outfits and gifts abound in the Coachella Valley. There are so many exciting and exquisite stores to select from, and all price points make shopping in the desert an adventure. My usual statement of “get out and explore our desert” will be one of the most rewarding things you do.

The economy has changed our spending h

Spring is the perfect time to think about our homes and how we can improve our environment. There are many new looks, items to generate healthy living, and many money saving products to discover. Even the vintage furnishings and accessories from the past have resurfaced today. I am featuring three stores that are now in new locations.

Even desert casual clothing has bling!

Image
As if you didn’t already know, the Valley is heating up and when the temperature is climbing, it’s a great time to shop. This week I am writing about stores that feature desert casual clothing, espcecially cloth-ing with “bling.” The colors are bright and the bling is everywhere in jewelry, belts, hats and embellishment right on the clothing. You name it – it is here to stay. Each and every season you will find it even on the golf courses. Get out of the heat and get into the cool stor...

Experience the charm of Old Town La Quinta

Image
This week I ventured out to Old Town La Quinta, a quaint spot nestled below the mountains. The stores are charming and unique, and full of merchandise to please the eye. It is an outing you will enjoy with all the restaurants, coffee bars, and old town charm, not to mention the sounds of fountains and music playing that are prominent in the local stores. What a relaxing area to shop in, and I do mean shop. If you don’t end up with a shopping bag or two, I would be surprised. Most of the charm...

Spectacular fashion show at Westfield Palm Desert

On Saturday, August 17, the Westfield Palm Desert Mall was filled with anxious spectators, waiting to view the Rock the Runway Fashion Show, and Modeling Competition. Palm Desert Mayor, Jan Harnik was the mistress of ceremonies for the fashion show, also hosted the event.

The flair of the children and teen models stole the show, with their cute mannerisms and gestures. The fashions shown were quite fashionable, and were supplied by the GAP and JC Penney Stores.

Models ranged in ages 2 to 84,...

New treasures can be found at local consignment stores

Image
I have discovered so many wonderful consignment/vintage shops and antique stores here in the Coachella Valley, covering all nine cities. Yet, each store seems to have its own personality, and carries their own specialty merchandise. Not only do I find the owners, but the employees to be very knowledgeable and helpful. They all say they enjoy their jobs. If I was working there I would probably say the same thing, because you meet so many new people, and constantly can deal with new merchandise, a...

Shopping for Mother?s Day

Image
Mother’s Day is just a couple of days away, and I thought I would make shopping easy with the stores we are writing about in this article. They have special items for Mother’s Day purchases for all of us. What I love most about producing my column is the opportunity to meet the owners of these fine establishments and enjoy hearing about them including their past , and how they arrived here in the Desert. The amazing thing is how they all have exquisite taste and do such a good job to bring u...

Shopping experiences for cowboys and cowgirls

HeeHaw! Stagecoach is right around the corner and it brings a lot of people to town and everyone will be clicking their heels, whistling and humming those great western tunes from up valley to down valley. There will be cowboys and cowgirls everywhere. If you want to join them you might want to visit the stores I am covering this week, as they truly relate to Stagecoach, held in Indio.

Western Wear and instruments don’t just relate to Stagecoach, as many people enjoy the western wear as a st...

Palm Desert offers fun and eclectic shopping experiences

Image
What I love most about my column is discovering the various treasures in the Coachella Valley along with meeting wonderful owners and associates. I get to see it all, and all I can do is impress upon you that you should get down valley or up valley to see different, exclusive lines of items and clothing. These stores carry something for everyone, and within everyone’s budget.

We can get lazy about driving out of our areas, but the rewards are well worth the trip. While in one of the store I re...
