Late adds to Lei Chic's guide to the weekend's best events

Weekend Picks - Saturday, December 22, 2012

Lei Chic Shop
Great and Small
If you're still searching for the perfect little girl's gift, here's an adorable idea - pick up a dress, tunic or romper from Tiare Hawaii, Fighting Eel or Ava Sky (shown left, photo courtesy of Fighting Eel). All three lines just released new "mini" versions of their most popular adult styles, which look great alone or as matching mommy-and-me looks.
Where: Tiare Hawaii, Mini Eel and Ava Sky for kids are available at both Fighting Eel stores. Tiare Hawaii is also sold at Aloha Aina Boutique at Royal Hawaiian Center and San Lorenzo Mother and Keiki at Princess Kaiulani in Waikiki.
Also: For more last-minute gift ideas, click through our guides for women, men and stocking stuffers, most of which are available at local stores and boutiques.

The Kahala Hotel & Resort is hosting two shopping events this weekend. Today, you can get 20 percent off your entire purchase when you shop at The Kahala Boutique and new children's boutique L'il Nell's.

Royal Treatment

Wardrobe Updates
Here's something to look foward to in 2013.
