Lei Chic's guide to the weekend's best events
Weekend Picks - April 17, 2014
Land Meets Sea
What: Two of our faves, Paiko Hawaii and mobile boutique Salt + Sand, are bud-dying up for a pop-up shopping event. Check out Paiko's newest succulent crop and browse Salt + Sand's new arrivals and 40-percent-off racks.
When: Saturday, April 19, 6 to 10 p.m.
Where: Paiko Hawaii, 675 Auahi St., 988-2165

An Eggcellent Easter
What: The Easter bunny is feeling extra generous this year at Royal Hawaiian Center, so (s)hop on down. Snare goodies such as Tory Burch's new signature beauty line or Kate Spade's colorful new collection for your Easter basket—or even try your luck at winning one of five $100 Center gift cards. Show a receipt for $150 or more from any Center restaurant or store and you get to choose a "lucky" egg for the prize drawing. Move over, chocolate rabbits and jelly beans. Your Easter morning just leveled up. (And don't forget to check back April 28–May 11 for more chances to win and score prizes in the Royal Spin Giveaway.)
When: Sunday, April 20, 10 a.m.–10 p.m.
Where: Helumoa Hale, Royal Hawaiian Center

Here Comes the Brides
What: Catch the Hawaii premiere of Brides, an award-winning Greek romance set aboard the SS King Alexander in 1922. Unhappily married man—check. A bride (and 699 others) unsure about her future—check. Iceberg, Leo and sinking scene—missing.

Where: Movie Museum, 3566 Harding Ave.

Match Spade in Heaven
What: The free shipping and free returns online are great. But we can't wait to browse the poppy-prep, fabulous collection of Hawaii's first Kate Spade Saturday in person.
When: Kate Spade Saturday opens, of course, Saturday, April 19, 9:30 a.m.
Where: Ala Moana Center, second level near Macy's
Details: Early shoppers get free totes with purchase. That's just the beginning of our Kate love. Rumor is that a Kate Spade outlet is moving into Waikele soon, plus, the brand just announced a collaboration with Gap kids set to launch in November. So we have a few months to figure out how to wriggle into girls' sizes.
