what's the easiest way to hook up a shower head and valve to an outdoor faucet? it's going up at work for folks that exercise during day, and needs to look decent for visiting clients (no hose nailed to a wall)--many thanks.

Is there not going to be hot water supplied to this valve?

no--simply running off the cold water faucet.

Cool

Get a double-hose Y to screw onto the outdoor faucet. Turn one side of the Y toward the wall.
Come off that side with a hose bib adapter, and PVC-glue up fittings and 1/2" pvc pipe for a showerhead clamped to the wall with PVC pipe clamps made for the purpose.
Use regular rubber hose washer at Y, and teflon tape (2-3 flat wraps clockwise only) on any other threaded fittings (shower arm and head).
You can use either the little ball valve cutoff on that side of the Y, or install a ball valve with handle in the pipe on the wall.
It will look fine, and you'll still have the other side to connect a hose to, if you need it.
Use a wooden shipping pallet covered with rubber bath or plastic welcome mats for the shower base, if it is on bare ground (mud, grass clippings), or get fancy and build a pressure-treated wood shower stall.
Good Luck!
