A Garden of Retail Delight



The Gardens’ anchor store, Saks Fifth Avenue.

Desert sunlight filters through towering palm trees and open-air trellises. Native plants line shady walkways and surround a beautiful half-acre central garden, as a collection of fine stores and restaurants draws tourists and locals from the street into a shoppers’ paradise. The Gardens on El Paseo offers a year-round respite in the center of the Coachella Valley’s most elegant retail destination. 

Anchored in the central corridor by Saks Fifth Avenue, the six-acre complex boasts some of the best in brand name and unique local retailers. The new Ann Taylor concept store is worth a visit for its beautifully appointed dressing rooms alone. And recent renovations to the Tommy Bahama store and restaurant, as well as Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma, keep the almost 15-year-old complex feeling fresh and lively. 

Round out this inclusive shopping experience with the sophisticated flair of Coach, Fendi, Tiffany, Talbots, and Brooks Brothers. Delight in She She, She She Kids, Francesca’s Collections, and Anthropologie. And peruse the other mainstay retailers including Bare Escentuals, Eileen Fisher, J. Crew, Jewel Orchid, and tea purveyor Tevana.

Numerous dining options abound in The Gardens, from seafood and wood-fired pizza to sizzling steaks and island fare. Make your visit to The Gardens on El Paseo an all-day affair.
