Shop - Rock Your Winter Wear

Make It a Stylish Season



Earmuffs for your MP3 player.

Winter in the Greater Palm Springs area brings chilly days and lots of nippy evenings. It’s the perfect season to shop for hot winter wear. Whether you need warm clothes for desert nights or to venture out of the Coachella Valley to truly icy climes, you can find what you need locally.

Saks Fifth Avenue at The Gardens on El Paseo in Palm Desert offers a range of cool-weather gear for the smartly dressed shopper. This winter, sleeveless is where it’s at! Look like a million bucks in a sporty reversible jacket by Sherry Cassin or a snuggly faux fur vest — all worn over a sassy sweater dress or jeans. Top it off with a Moschino beanie cap, and you’ll be stylin’.

As the desert’s gala season kicks into high gear, check out super-cool — and warm — vintage gowns and outerwear at Kerson. This chic boutique in the north end of Palm Springs’Uptown Design District carries a bounty of chic fashion, midcentury furniture, and illuminating lighting fixtures from the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. Ever-changing inventory includes eveningwear by Vicky Tiel, Richard Tyler, Mary McFadden, and Thierry Mugler and outerwear such as a natural suede coat by Balmain Paris or jacquard coat by Matsuda.

For boys and girls, She She Kids at The Gardens on El Paseo has plenty of parkas and fluffy vests by Desigual, Catimini, and Appaman to keep the young ones warm. Shoes and boots by Toms provide comfort in fashion-forward footwear. For each pair sold, Toms donates a pair of shoes to a person in need.

Choose from more than 200 stores at Desert Hills Premium Outlets in Cabazon to help you outfit the season. Celebrating its one-year anniversary, Last Call by Neiman-Marcus presents a dizzying array of winter fashions at outlet prices. To complement your outerwear, check out the extensive selection of scarves, hats, earmuffs (including faux-fur wired earmuffs that will warm your lobes while you listen to your MP3 player), and gloves and mittens. And look for leather texting technology gloves from Grandoe that allow you to use a smart phone while warming your digits.

After Last Call, drop by GoLite next door at Cabazon Outlets for parkas and casual attire for men and women.  Smart and sophisticated enough for a night on the town or rugged enough for a cold weather hike, the many styles here provide for a near-perfect fit.

At The Car Wash, Yeah

Wash your car and stock up on winter gear at the same time. Carrying everything from snacks, drinks, ice cream, and greeting cards to toys, jewelry, small gifts, and automotive accessories, Airport Quick Car Wash on Ramon Road in Palm Springs also offers hats, including novelty and sports caps, playful kids toppers, and super-warm and stylish wool beanies. Scarves and the occasional pair of gloves are also sometimes available. Never underestimate the power of a pop-up shopping opportunity.
