Living Lei Chic: One Pop Shopping

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - You usually celebrate when good things show up in pairs; fabulous earrings, cute shoes, buy one get one free deals.

But you definitely did not cheer when you and your best friend pulled an accidental "twinsies" moment at your last party, then again at lunch, and even a wedding in Waikiki.

You need a truly unique shop filled with one-of-a-kind or custom (and affordable) looks to ensure that you'll stand out from your fashionable friends.

Fortunately, there's a place where you can rev up your fashion and luxury cars all at once.

Lei Chic Senior Editor Christi Young and Publisher and Founder Alyson Helwagen introduce us to the first ever Lei Chic Mercedes Benz Pop-Up Boutique. This weekend, about 20 local jewelry, apparel, and handbag designers will set up shop in the beautiful Kapiolani Blvd. Showroom for two days only. Most are in just one-or-two boutiques on Oahu (some are not in any on island at all), many are launching brand new designs just for the event, and all will offer at least 20 perent off some part of their collections.

Five dollars in admission gives you access to their big sales, custom made, complimentary drinks and food from some favorite businesses in the Lei Chic article archives, and scores you a shopping pass good for 20 other stores and online shops through the end of September.

The Lei Chic Mercedes Benz Pop-Up Boutique begins Friday, 4 to 8 p.m. and again on Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
