Palm Desert is a very special place to me, not only because I just got married there earlier this year, but there is something about the weather mixed with the palm trees and the mountains that makes a weekend trip feel like a full blown vacation. It is the perfect place to relax, soak up the sun, catch up on my fashion mags, and of course, shop. (Did I mention it is only 2 hrs from LA?) About a year ago, I came across the most amazing boutique nestled in the cutest shopping area in Old Town La Quinta. Since then, Elizabeth & Prince has become a must-shop destination every time I come to town.
Named after the NYC shopping neighborhood that was the former home of the owners, Elizabeth & Prince is the perfect combination of downtown chic meets California cool. The store is open and airy, giving it that chic, luxury vibe, yet the bright white walls and beautiful fixtures play host to a strong assortment of designers. I found pieces from A.L.C., Helmut Lang, Rag & Bone, Equipment, Haute Hippie, but I also found some new designers to fall in love with — have you heard of Closed and Tysa? New obsession alert!
Elizabeth & Prince also carries a ton of amazing accessories from super cute jelly shoes by Melissa to brightly colored JadeTribe totes, beautiful jewelry, and so much more. They even have my favorite Voluspa candles – Laguna is the absolute best.
So next time you head out to the desert for a little R&R or if you are already planning your trip to Coachella, make sure you stop in Elizabeth & Prince and indulge. I promise you won’t leave empty handed!
