'Woman's Show' Caters to Females with Health Info, Lectures, Pampering

The two-day women's expo is billed as a "girl's day out" and will feature food, wine, health and beauty information, along with a series of presentations.

Thousands of women will converge on the Palm Desert area this weekend, as the fifth annual Desert Woman's Show takes place.

The event drew some 5,000 attendees last year, and this year is expected to be even more packed, as it has expanded into two pavilions.

Hosted at the Westin Mission Hills Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage, the event is touted as the ultimate "girls day out" by organizers and features food samplings, more than 120 exhibitors, music and art, among other things.

"This is two full days of lectures, fashion shows, and demonstrations that will appeal to women who are interested in what's new, what's next and what's hot, right here in the Valley," said Diana Marlo, President of Marlo Productions.  "This event only comes once a year and is a not-to-miss celebration of women in our valley."

Some of the highlighted speakers include Dr. Drew Ordon of "The Doctors" fame and Michael Costello of Project Runway.

Tickets cost $15 per day at the door, or $25 per day for tickets including Taste of the Valley.
