Weekend Shopping Picks

 Shop this weekend for the kind of treats even better than the Easter Bunny brings: sweet deals. 

Fighting Eel Fridays
Like a once-a-week sample sale, the Fighting Eel showroom in Chinatown opens every Friday with big discounts on the line’s signature comfy-yet-sexy dresses. Everything here is from past seasons, and some dresses are as low as $10 or $20. Starting next week, the showroom will be open on Thursdays too. Friday from 10 -5, Fighting Eel showroom, 47 N. Hotel Street , 808.524.1472. More info at

Alliway Sale
Local jewelry designer Allison Kim-Czerniak has marked down her entire Alliway store at Ward Warehouse for Friday and Saturday only. All Alliway jewelry is 30 percent off, all handbags are 20 percent off and everything else in the store, including other jewelry lines, stationary and even her lower-priced Backstreet line, is 10 percent off. Alliway, Ward Warehouse, 808.589.1141,
