Spring has sprung, and with more than 100 shops and eateries, La Palmera is gearing up for all the season has to offer. Shoppers will find the latest trends and seasonal gear for all ages from a variety of stores and enjoy some unique events, as well.

Mother’s Day is May 8, and if you’re looking for the right gift, La Palmera has it. Find the latest styles at Michael Kors, francesca’s, White House | Black Market or Motherhood Maternity for the mommy to be, personal items at Bath and Body Works, cosmetics from MAC, accessories at Charming Charlie or incredible sweets from Bourbon Street Candy Co.

In honor of Mother’s Day, the Corpus Christi Rose Society will hold its annual Mother’s Day Rose Sale on Saturday, May 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Center Court with dozens of beautiful roses for sale. And all moms who valet park on Mother’s Day will receive a complimentary rose (while supplies last).

Graduation is also on the horizon for many families, and La Palmera has some great gift ideas. Hallmark offers a great selection of cards and collectibles, Things Remembered has a variety of items that can be personalized to commemorate the event and Build-A-Bear Workshop has huggable graduation bears. You can stop by one of our fine jewelers, including Pandora, Reeds Jewelers, Zales or Gordon’s Jewelers, for something they’ll always treasure.

A night out with family and friends is also a great way to celebrate with mom or your grad. La Palmera has a variety of full-service dining options sure to please any taste, including LongHorn Steakhouse, P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria and Chili’s Grill & Bar.

If you’re still undecided about what to buy, pick up a La Palmera gift card. Available at Concierge or online at lapalmera.com in amounts from $10 to $500, the cards may be used at most La Palmera stores and restaurants.

While you’re at La Palmera, be sure to check out the Braselton Homes-built lemonade stand on display April 11 through May 14. The stand will be raffled off to a lucky Lemonade Day Coastal Bend registrant in honor of National Lemonade Day, which encourages entrepreneurship in America’s youth.

Organized locally by the Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce Foundation and presented by Kleberg Bank, Lemonade Day Coastal Bend encourages teaching entrepreneurial skills and thinking to children by teaching them to build, own and operate their own business — a lemonade stand. The raffle winner will be announced Saturday, May 7, and will, with the help and training of the Corpus Christi Chamber, operate their new lemonade stand at La Palmera on Saturday, May 14. Visit coastalbend.lemonadeday.org for more information on registering to win the stand and participate in Lemonade Day 2016.
