I was out with my husband and our two teens last year on Mother’s Day. He’d asked what I wanted to do and I thought something super low key – dinner in and a family movie night sounded just about right.
This year, my 15-year-old daughter decided on an entirely different experience to celebrate with a “girls afternoon out” a day early – one that involves two of her favorite pastimes: day-tripping and shopping.
So with all the premium outlet shopping we could possibly want, we’re putting retail therapy from Desert Hills at the top of the list. Over 180 stores with markdowns up to 65% off makes it so easy to find the perfect gift for mom (and some pretty fantastic finds for teenage girls too). Here are a few of the stores we both agreed were going to be infinitely infinitely fun to wander in and out of on our weekend shopping sojourn:
Alice + Olivia features fashions with a youthful vibe that juxtaposes the whimsical and flirty with the sexy and sophisticated – from denim styles and spring dresses to work attire and beautiful accessories.
Renowned for his glamorous red-sole shoes and killer stilettos, Christian Louboutin is synonymous with luxury and celebrity. As the designer’s only outlet store on the West Coast, Desert Hills Premium Outlets showcases the French luxury brand’s signature style found in their coveted shoes, handbags and accessories for both men and women.
Looking for some international flair that offers “high-end” luxury without the hefty price tag? Scandinavian brand GANNI has earned something of a cult following with unique attire that features designer quality, elevated pieces – effortless style characterized by pops of color and prints, putting a fresh spin on closet staples. I’m certain it doesn’t hurt that scores of popular celebs and fashion icons have been spotted wearing its latest looks.
Intricate attention to detail, elegance and sophisticated refinement coupled with expert craftsmanship to create the most comfortable Italian high heels is what sets Gianvito Rosi apart. From “Vamp” boot styles to “Ellipsis” pumps, the Italian shoe maker offers a variety of styles that are perfect for any occasion.
