On Your Marc (Sponsored)

Marc Jacobs' holiday pop-up at T Galleria Hawaii by DFS

T Galleria Hawaii by DFS

You have your favorite Christmas-time critters. Penguins, the patron saint of wintry wrapping paper. Polar bears, hip ones with soda bottles in hand. A partridge, pear tree included. Rudolph.

But a quizzical zebra, sassy black cat and bewildered bulldog? Not exactly what you had in mind...

Until now. Venture into the Marc by Marc Jacobs Gift Giving Pop Up Shop on the second floor of T Galleria Hawaii by DFS and you'll uncover a seasonal safari of fun, fauna-covered goodies (warning: you may go a little hog wild). Capture an adorable hot pink bunny silhouette clutch or a black cat tote, then round up techie gifts like earbuds and iPad mini cases featuring Olive, the sometimes-psychedelic, sometimes-sober bulldog that heads up the pack of this 2013 Critter Collection. And those bunny-ear-patterned scarves in vivid teal, hot pink or black? Wild horses couldn't drag us away.

But the real elephant in the room is the T Galleria clearance sale. It's stocked with enough luxury-brand biodiversity to make your Christmas giftees cry crocodile tears of joy and enough percents off to make your wallet do the same. Plus, with two-hour free parking validation at the Waikiki Trade Center with any purchase (just mention Lei Chic at the 1F Concierge Desk), stalking the perfect stocking stuffers in this three-floor zoo of sumptuous style will be a walk in the dog park.

If you're not too much of a busy shopping bee, soak in the Christmas spirit with some Children's Choir Christmas caroling or a photo op with Santa, free keepsake included.

Looks like Santa's sleigh will have a wee bit more critter company than usual this year. Let the fashion feeding frenzy begin.

T Galleria Hawaii by DFS is located at 330 Royal Hawaiian Ave. Open 10 a.m.-11 p.m. daily. Holiday schedule: Photo with Santa, December 22 and 24, 8-10 p.m., 3rd Floor; Children's Choir Christmas Carol by Diamond Head Theater Shooting Stars, December 23, 7:30-8:30 p.m., 3rd Floor.
