Designer outlet store Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th just announced plans to open a huge new location at El Paseo Square in Palm Desert, slated to arrive in September 2016. The upcoming 23,000 air-conditioned square feet of discounted high-end retail goodness represents Saks Off 5th's 19th store in California, and like the location at Beverly Connection, will feature a curated assortment of men's and women's luxury designer fashion, accessories, and footwear with in-season offerings from more than 800 top designer brands, including Ray-Ban, Acne Studios, Prada, and LA-fave Wildfox at 40-70% off regular retail prices.
Jonathan Greller, President of Gilt and Saks Off 5th, commented "El Paseo Square is situated in a premier location for luxury retail in Southern California's Coachella Valley. We could not be more excited to open our doors at this fantastic property this fall," adding, "this opening reaffirms our commitment to providing a premium off-price shopping experience for shoppers in the region, as well as our continued commitment to investing and growing in the state of California."
New pieces will arrive in the store almost daily, and we're already coveting these Balmain sunnies and this avant-garde Comme Des Garcons ruffle dress; there's definitely going to be lots of pieces worth losing your mind over. Essentially, it's everything you love about Saks Fifth Avenue at majorly reduced price points, so come with your credit card prepared. The best part is that you'll no longer need to have your Chella-ready outfit planned before you hit the road.
