I was so excited when the Palladio selected me as their Influencer of the Month. It’s one of my favorite places to shop! While Folsom is only twenty miles from Sacramento, it is far enough to feel like you’ve escaped the city.
Shopping at The Palladio
The Palladio is the premier destination for shopping and entertainment in the area. The center is beautiful, with Italian inspired architecture that if empty enough, will make you feel you have your own little piece of Europe. It’s very walkable so you can park your car and venture out. In addition to retail stores, the Palladio has restaurants, spas, and a movie theater. You can tell just how much there is to do in my previous post as well.
I love that I can go there and can be there all day because they have every store I’d shop at. From Nordstrom Rack to H&M, to local shops like Apricot Lane and Button Up, whether I’m shopping for myself or looking for a gift, I’m totally covered. With Whole Foods right there too, I can stock up on groceries and my beauty favorites before I head back down to Sacramento.
On my most recent visit to the Palladio, I stopped by Charlotte Russe, Charming Charlie, and Soma to pick up some goodies to supplement my current wardrobe! I’m doing a lot better about overbuying and just getting the things that I need.
Dining at the Palladio
There are over 15 dining options at the Palladio, and having tried a few of them already, I wanted to check out Back Bistro, a Folsom eatery that just made its way to the Palladio. I kept hearing that I needed to try this place out and was eager to experience it for myself. Let me just say that it is so good and the service is amazing. They didn’t know we were coming in, so don’t think I got special treatment – they are just that good! I’ve heard you can’t go wrong with any of the dishes, but here’s what we ordered:
- Cobb Salad
- Goat Cheese Fritters
- Shrimp & Polenta
- Steak & Potatoes
- Faux-jito mocktail
I also enjoyed a glass of sparkling wine at the bar, because why not?
Upcoming Events at the Palladio
There is no shortage of events and fun things to do at the Palladio.
Every Saturday at 9am, you can enjoy Saturday Soul Yoga presented by Serenity Spa and Soul Yoga. It is free to the public and all you have to do is bring a yoga mat and your own water.
June marks the launch of the Summer Concert Series running through August. Every Wednesday, enjoy family-friendly concerts in the Piazza area. Don’t forget to bring a blanket!

Maybe I’ll run into you on my next visit there!
