As the temperatures climb into the 90s this week, the real pool season is about to start in the Palm Springs area.

Khool Pool, a pop-up store located at 1414 N. Palm Canyon Drive in north Palm Springs, opens April 11 in time for the opening weekend of the Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival.

“We think of the pool as its own room – an outdoor living room, essentially – and we want to help people ‘deck out’ their pool areas and really put the ‘cool’ in the pool this summer,” says Vicki French, founder of Blink and creator of Khool Pool.

Khool Pool will include things to wear (such as sarongs, glow in the dark flip flops, hats, sunglasses), stuff to play with/on (like fun floaties shaped as ice cream sandwiches and donuts with a bite taken out, as well as beer pong, noodles and beach balls), pool decorations (such as a giant duck, 12-foot beach ball, and light-up globes/balls to float in pool) plus stuff to eat and drink with at pool (light-up cups, HUGE mason jar plastic cups, etc.).

“The pool is at the center of so many upcoming desert events including White Party, Coachella, Spring Break and other events being hosted by local hotels,” adds French. “We thought this would be the perfect time for a pool-themed pop-up store to really give people some fun additions for their poolside playtime.”

After opening, Khool Pool will maintain store hours of 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays until the second weekend in June. After that time, Blink is accepting bookings for its pop-up space. Blink can accommodate up to 99 people at full occupancy, and comes equipped with a sound system, Wi-Fi, track lighting, a security system, parking, restroom facilities and air conditioning.

“This space can be whatever anyone imagines it to be,” explains French. “Sky’s the limit! Blink can host events, become a chic boutique, be a satellite office, feature movie screenings or book signings – it can be molded to fit a variety of purposes and can meet temporary objectives for those who need a space but don’t want to commit to a long-term lease.”

French is an entrepreneur who previously left her mark in the Palm Springs area by creating and growing the region’s most eclectic and comprehensive party store – Partylab, which she sold last year.
