Be like a roadrunner and run over to Rancho Relaxo for a quintessential desert shopping experience. With hats hung from wall to wall and roadrunner-themed products on every shelf, it won’t take you long to see why Rancho Relaxo is every desert-dweller’s go-to spot. Opening its first set of doors in 2019 in Rancho Mirage, Rancho Relaxo earned early notoriety for its deftly curated selection of desert-themed apparel and home goods. The shop’s second location on El Paseo is brimming with artisan goods and a sundry of its own branded items. From locally thrown pottery to big brand names, there is something for everyone.

Looking to transform your closet into a sun-worshiper wardrobe? Then head over to El Paseo’s recent addition, Coco Rose. This boutique’s clothing is distinguished by its intricate patterns and vivid colors. The clothing’s light, wispy fabric is ideal for beating the heat in the desert, and each piece can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the day ahead of you. This mother-and-daughter-owned brand gleans its inspiration from the duo’s travels in Bali and the islands surrounding it, making its clothing suited for anyone with wanderlust. The new El Paseo location will mark the shop’s sixth storefront, and we doubt they’ll stop expanding anytime soon.


Lolo Interiors

Sometimes going on a trip is the inspiration we desperately need to redesign our space. Lolo Interiors opened its first location on El Paseo in late February, serving as a sustainable design house that offers both interior design services and home goods. Garnering inspiration from the desert elements surrounding Palm Springs, Lolo Interiors’ focus is to help you elevate your space with organic and modern pieces. The family-owned brand has made its mark in the Greater Palm Springs community with a mission to bring nature’s natural elements to residential and commercial spaces. From handwoven rugs to carved stone accent bowls, Lolo Interiors will remain on the El Paseo bucket list for years to come.

The Shops on El Paseo will soon welcome Shorebird, a coastal eatery with a wide range of international cuisines. With a sophisticated design and a long list of handcrafted cocktails, this dining experience will be a staple every time you find yourself on El Paseo. Some of their fan favorites include their Nashville chicken sandwich, bison short rib and their “The Shorebird” almond wood-fired rotisserie chicken plate. Whether you’re a sushi fanatic or have a hankering for short-rib sandwiches, Shorebird pleases all palates that walk through its doors. 




Molé is the latest eatery established on El Paseo and is already turning heads with its exquisite Mexican cuisine. Molé’s classy designed desert location marks its second establishment serving a specific menu inspired by Southern Mexican recipes. With tortillas made fresh to order and a selection of seafood and meats sourced locally, Molé is redefining what quality and freshness mean. Appetizers like their famous iron skillet cornbread and grilled bone marrow elote introduce foreign flavors and showcase the beauty of each dish. So take a seat under one of the beaded chandeliers, order a jalapeño margarita and relish in your successful shopping day on El Paseo.
