For four years running, I’ve been a huge fan of the Desert Woman’s Show. And the fifth annual event is coming upon us soon, taking place this year on November 17-18 at the beautiful Westin Mission Hills Resort and Spa in Rancho Mirage. I, for one, can barely wait! As the only event of its kind in Southern California, this extravaganza is often referred to as “the ultimate girls’ day out,” and I can attest, it has something for women of every age group, from shopping, food tasting, relaxing, pampering, learning, and just enjoying the day together!
Over the five years, the show’s exhibition spaces have almost doubled from 16,000 square feet to more than 31,000 in two convention halls, and this year on offer will be more than 140 product and service displays, a wide selection of inspirational and informative lectures, fun demonstrations, and some totally super celebrity guests.
In the mood to shop? Who isn’t!? Macy*s will be presenting daily fashion shows, and Project Runway’s Michael Costello—one of my favorite Palm Springs Valley residents—will be on hand to offer designer tips. Need tips on relaxation? Check out all the information on yoga and massage. Need some pampering? You’ll find all kinds of resources for make-up application, hair consultation, and overall makeovers. And there are also opportunities to learn about ballroom dancing, fitness, self-defense, the latest medical information, weight loss solutions, cosmetic surgery, and bio-identical hormone treatments. Oh yeah, and don’t let me forget to mention the food and wine samplings from more than 20 local restaurants! Like I said, something for everyone. See you there.
