About Us

Lei Chic is a free, daily e-mail that tells you about new shops and boutiques, the best spas and salons, new restaurants, and cool services and events in Hawaii. It's just like a magazine you get in the mail, but instead of getting 30 articles once a month in your mailbox, you get one quick fun-to-read article a day in your email inbox.

Lei Chic is published Monday through Friday and every article is like getting an insider tip from your most plugged-in girlfriend, who is passing the dish on to you.

It’s what your friends will be talking about tomorrow – in your inbox today.
