Before you hit the 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target launch on Sunday, may we suggest taking a day trip out to Cabazon on Saturday? A little past Palm Springs lives a discount designer mecca called Desert Hills Premium Outlets, and its just landed Mulberry's first-ever outlet shop in the country.
Located next to YSL and not too far from that newish Versace store, the British luxury brand's bargain digs boast up to 50% off on leather goods and women's gear. We're talking handbags (including Alexa Chung's bag!), accessories, ready-to-wear, outerwear and shoes.
The Mulberry outlet is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 9am and Sunday from 10am to 8pm. If you're on the fence about making the trek, check out Desert Hills' epic portfolio of 130 designer outlets and get some Christmas shopping done months ahead of anyone else.
