Factory outlet shopping doesn't get much better than this! Desert Hills has 130 stores plus two (adequate) food courts. Many of the usual stores are found here - Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss, Bass Shoes, etc. - but it is the high end brands that make this mall a must stop. There are two Coach stores (one for men and one for women), Kate Spade, Tods, True Religion Jeans, Ugg, 7 for all Mankind Jeans, Michael Kors, Prada, Etro, Versace, Salvatore Ferragamo and Zegna.
Visit the mall's website to get coupons for many stores and to find out when the big sales are on. We were able to catch the post-Christmas sales which among things saw everything in the Kate Spade store at 50% off, 35% off everything in the Coach stores and jeans at 7 for all Mankind just $73 each.
Be prepared for a lot of walking as the mall is quite spread out and parking can be a challenge given some of the construction that is currently underway.
Desert Hills is just 30 minutes from Palm Spings (50 minutes from La Quinta) and an hour from central L.A. (in good traffic). For a thorough shopping experience budget a minimum of four hours!
