Sleepy Hale‘iwa just got a sleek retail facelift with the new Hale‘iwa Store Lots near Matsumoto Shave Ice. The strip includes stores carrying surf wear to artwork, and front and center is Guava Shop, right on Kamehameha Highway.


Owners Kai Cost and Liz Lerner originally opened their boutique in 2008, but moved locations this past winter, expanding its offerings in the process. That means you can now stock up on items that include handmade soaps from My Mānoa, darling Mikoh bikinis and special Guava-exclusive pieces from Hawai‘i designers, including bright baubles from CSmith Jewelry and sassy, tropical pouches from Samudra.


The biggest news: the launch of the Guava team’s very own clothing label, Pon Pon. Blending urban and beach chic, the ladies went a colorful, resort-wear route with dyes applied using a kaleidoscopic shibori technique. Tunics in effortless cuts, flowing sundresses born for the beach and jumpsuits perfect for springtime romping pop in vibrant shades of chartreuse, hot pink and balmy blue.
