The 6 Best Ways to Shop and Eat Yourself Silly This Weekend

Lei Chic’s picks for the weekend’s best events.



Who’da Trunk

What: The poor East Coast is trying to sludge its way through a brutal winter, but, over here in the Islands, our biggest problem is trying to figure out what to wear at our next beach sesh. Head over to San Lorenzo Hale‘iwa, and we think you’ll quickly solve that problem. Not only will the shop have its signature suits for sale, but Kira Hawai‘i will have a trunk show, and nothing completes a day by the sea better than minimal rings or shark-teeth pendants.  

When: Saturday, Feb. 28, 11 a.m.–3 p.m.

Where: 66-057 Kamehameha Highway

Details: Call 637-3200 for more information.



Cocoa Beantown

What: It’s there when you’re happy. It’s there when you’re sad. It’s there at those times in between. We get excited about everything chocolate related, so this week’s Eat The Street has got us smacking our lips. Bonus? Some of our favorite food establishments will be throwing their chocolatey hats into the ring, including Il Gelato, Cake Works, Pop Pop Donuts and No Ka Oi Cookie Company.  

When: Friday, Feb. 27, 4–9 p.m.

Where: 555 South St. 

Details: Visit for more information.




Firm Fans

What: If there’s one thing we love, it’s some good swag. Enter The Firm HNL’s February giveaway to score some for yourself. The lucky winners will receive a package containing pieces from the brand’s 2015 “Take Flight” Delivery 1 collection. Post your most creative “essentials” layout photo, including any The Firm HNL merchandise, tag @thefirmhnlhawaii and hashtag it with #tfhhTakeFlight.

When: Contest ends tonight at midnight. Winners will be selected tomorrow at 11 a.m.

Details: Visit The Firm HNL’s Instagram for details.



Holiday! Celebrate!

What: We can hardly believe it’s been a whole year since We Are Iconic opened its fashionable doors. Since then, the store has continued to land on our lust-worthy list for modern, casual clothes (now for men, too!) and statement accessories. Congratulate owners Shie and Nate Clark this Friday, when the entire stock will be 10 percent off, and champagne, sweets and beer will be served. Talk about celebrating in style.   

Where: 1236 Waimanu St.

When: Friday, Feb. 27, 4–7 p.m.

Details: Visit for more information on the store and the brands it carries.




Nailed It

What: Fashion Week is the best (seriously, those luxe runway shows make us dream of life in New York), but, more often than not, the gorgeous get-ups sent down that aisle tend to be a little … let’s just say impractical for everyday life. That’s why we love The Fashion Spot’s approach to diving into the NYFW trends with nail art that’s totally wearable, from deep, dark shades to fun patterns to festive glitters.


Details: If you’re looking for an awesome nail salon (and seriously, who isn’t?), we love Nails La Vie in Kāhala, which offers manicures starting at $15.  



J’adore Adore

What: Adore will also hold a little b-day bash this weekend. The boutique, which is 7 years old this year, will go all out for the affair with a trunk show by Noe Noe B Jewelry, refreshments, a gift card giveaway and 30 percent off the entire store. Sounds like you’ll be going home with more than a couple of party favors—for you and your closet.    

When: Friday, Feb. 28, 10 a.m.–9 p.m.

Where: Kāhala Mall

Details:  Call 737-0608 for more information.
