Lululemon Retail Store in Palm Desert, California on El Paseo Drive

This is the Lululemon retail store in Palm Desert, California on El Paseo Drive.

El Paseo Drive is a shopping street that has the most exclusive stores and shops. Some think that it is like Rodeo Drive.

Here is a view of the front of the store entrance. I love the red and the mosaic tile! And how could you not love the palm trees!

IMGP8837 Lululemon Retail Store in Palm Desert, California on El Paseo Drive

This is a view of the register area. I have to say, it has the best sign of any of the Lululemon stores I have been to. There is a photo in the background of the desert area and then it says, ‘Sunscreen Absorbed into the skin may be worse than Sunshine. Get the right amount of Sunshine.’  Very cool sign!

Here is a view of the sign of different mountain trails or hikes in the area. The assistant manager that I talked to said that it was very popular in this area and that she loved to go. Being from mountainous BC, I could totally relate, and yet none of the stores that I have seen in BC has done this!
