Add some glamour to your Summer wardrobe

Image
The Summer wardrobe is definitely here! All a woman needs is a great bathing suit, a cover up and a smart looking pair of sunglasses, and a cool pair of sandals and she is good to go. On the subject of “Go”, there is a shop to discover in each city to fit the wardrobe bill. Of course it requires you, getting out of the pool and visiting these great stores. I always say, meet the owner and get to know them, and let them get to know you as well. Why? Because down the road you might have a special need. They might call in that case to tell you they have something for you, or maybe you make a request, and they have located it for you. In our desert, so many lovely stores are considered destination stores, which require you to drive, park and go to that specific store instead of shopping and strolling. I find these stores pass the savings on high rentals to their clients. That is all the more reason to discover these hidden treasures. Believe me, I find the greatest treasures, prices, and unusual merchandise at these destination stores.

I am starting a bus trip to some of these hidden treasures in July, which I am calling “Come Treasure Hunt and Explore with Bette King.” Of course this trip will be in style, in an air conditioned bus, with lunch included, and a full day of shopping beyond belief. If you want to sign up for one of these treasure hunt exploration excursions call (760) 202-4007 and reserve your spot, and get more details. Bring your friends and have a cool ,exciting fun day of shopping.

Palm Desert

Daisy’s Discount Swimwear; 74420 Highway 111, Suite 3, Palm Desert. A friendly experience awaits you at Daisy’s including the tin watering can filled with daisies. This is a family owned business of Alice and Linda, sisters who have been in business together for over 21 years. The store is packed with a wonderful array of bathing suits, one piece, two piece and beyond. They carry sizes 6-24. Alice is so experienced at helping you select a suit that truly suits you in fit, style, and price budget. It is great to get personal attention, especially from someone who will be honest as to how we look and who is not just interested in selling a bathing suit. The store owners are known for their honesty in that area. They have not only the suits, skorts, shorts to match the suits, as they also carry a selection of cover ups and beach bags. They are known for their discounts, and people come from all over as they are quite pleased with this type of pricing. The store is open Tuesday through Friday, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Saturday they are open from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. and are closed Sunday and Monday. Great fashionable suits and cover ups for that special cruise are available there. The most beautiful and dressy sets with bling are also stocked.

Mike’s Optical Boutique; 73345 Highway 111, Suite 205, Palm Desert. You will definitely feel like a kid in a candy store. The selection of sunglasses here are mind boggling. If they don’t have it there it doesn’t exist, as they carry over 65 brands of sunglasses. This is definitely an optical boutique. Mike the owner and his charming wife Carolyn definitely have a corner on the market with all their knowledge and experience. Mike’s Optical formerly was on El Paseo, and has quite a following. A large selection of European sunglasses are available at good prices, like Gucci, Prada, Cartier, Chanel, Tom Ford, and much more. They do not carry any Asian glasses in this boutique. The owner is able to add your prescription to any pair of glasses. They are open six days, Monday through Saturday. The latest unique products are available, like a pair of glasses that the frames pull out to be a glass holder around your neck. When pulled out, the glasses lay flat on your chest. This is a great gift for that someone who can never find their glasses. Mike is the only one in the Coachella Valley who carries wrap around prescription lenses, and another unusual technology is electronic measuring from a photo . His motto is “Don’t be a misfit, get the right fit, from Mike.”

Rancho Mirage

Shoe ZQ; 71590 Highway 111, Rancho Mirage. Your feet never looked so fashionable, if you are shopping here at Shoe ZQ. Each pair is more exciting than the next, and you find them in every color imaginable. It is all about good taste in buying, and believe me Mary Anne Towne is top in her field. She searches out comfort, price, style and if you can’t find it she will seek it out for you no matter your size. The store has an electric feel, with a black and white zebra, flowers, and décor adorning the store, which adds to this colorful boutique. The displays are pretty special as well . Your feet today make a fashion statement, and this would be my first choice to shop and see everything they carry. Most people come in for a pair of shoes, and a lot of the sales turn out to be three to four pairs of shoes. This tells you something. It is so nice to get this specialized attention from the owner who is very charming. In a couple of weeks she will be displaying a shoe rack, that holds over 165 pairs of shoes. Wow, come see for yourself around June 20, this revolving shoe rack. It will arrive for your viewing and it is known as RotaBob.
