Palm Springs is renowned for its Mid-Century modern style and roughly 360 days of sunshine each year. Besides its proximity to endless pools, Coachella, and Joshua Tree National Park, the city is also filled with plenty of boutiques, bars, and restaurants to fill a desert vacation. Below are the shopping destinations you shouldn't miss.

1. Trina Turk

891 N Palm Canyon Dr
Palm Springs, CA 92262
Trina Turk is pretty much the mayor of Palm Springs. There's lots of "desert woman of leisure" wear — in case you forgot to pack that — in a bright, midcentury modern setting.

2. Mitchells

106 S Indian Canyon Dr
Palm Springs, CA 92262
Great vintage for high-end label lovers from the '70s through the '90s, with an exceptional selection from the 1970s. Their hours vary by the season, so make sure to call before you head over.

3. Caroldean's Resale Therapy

67800 E Palm Canyon Dr
Cathedral City, CA 92234
Set aside some time to dig through this vintage shop, which is stacked with pre-loved designer items from Escada, Gucci, Pucci, St. John, Chanel, Manolo Blahnik, and more.

4. Hoof And The Horn

Yucca Valley, CA 92284
(760) 365-6100
Visit Website
If you're heading to hike in Joshua Tree or sound-bathe at the Integratron, be sure not to miss Hoof and The Horn — a rustic Yucca Valley boutique that encapsulates the dusty cowboy swag and laid-back, adventurous energy of the high desert — where you can shop vintage Southwest retro gear alongside Minnetonka moccasins, printed tunics, rad fringed leather bags, and necklaces by Native Rainbow.

5. Desert Hills Premium Outlets

Copy Link
48400 Seminole Dr
Cabazon, CA 92230
(951) 849-6641
Visit Website
The sprawling, recently expanded retail complex is home to the first outlet shops by Rag & Bone, Helmut Lang, Sandro, Maje, and Mulberry, and a Barneys New York revamp means you can now find Céline, Dries van Noten, and Yohji Yamamoto merchandise from the Beverly Hills store. Don't forget to take a selfie with the dinosaur from Pee Wee's Big Adventure, and grab a date shake at Hadley's.

6. Deja Vu Vintage Finery

Copy Link
664 N Palm Canyon Dr
Palm Springs, CA 92262
(760) 699-5365
Visit Website
The owner of Deja Vu — notable Palm Springs design maven Bill Miller — stocks his shop with affordable and splurge-y treasures that represent the city's Mid-Century heyday, from Bakelite bangles and embroidered caftans to sleek black dresses and velvet smoking jackets for men. Note the shop is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

7. Peninsula Pastries

Shopping isn't limited to just clothes: this sparkling bakery is run by Helene and Christophe Meyer, a Parisian couple who import their flour from France. The fruit pastry and raisin buns have no rival in the region, and their perfect baguettes sell out almost as soon as they come out of the oven.

8. Raymond Lawrence

1800 E Palm Canyon Dr
Palm Springs, CA 92264
This concept store features an array of mini-shops by emerging designers. The marketplace includes organic lotions and potions from Coachella Valley's The Body Deli, plus jewelry, housewares, clothing, and more. Check out the flagship in Rancho Mirage (71800 California 111) or the location at The Saguaro, listed here.

9. Elizabeth & Prince

73470 El Paseo
Palm Desert, CA 92260
Owned by former New Yorkers Analisa and Shawn Holoubek, Elizabeth and Prince carries a sophisticated collection of day-to-night clothing selected for a warm climate. The shop's a smart mix of urban edge and resort luxe, with go-to labels like Rag and Bone and Enza Costa stocked alongside LA-based brands like Michelle Mason, Raquel Allegra, and jewelry line Dream Collective. There are two locations en route to Coachella: Old Town La Quinta and Palm Desert.
