Weekend Picks - Saturday, July 23, 2011

Lei ChicSee
Earhart has Landed
What:
Lost aviator Amelia Earhart's time in the islands is captured in a new photo exhibit at the Pacific Aviation Museum. The 40 photographs were taken as publicity stills when she spent a few weeks in the islands in 1934, then touched down for three days in 1937 before disappearing during her round-the-world flight.  Matson had it stashed away until just recently and now you can take a look. 
When: The exhibit opens tomorrow with a celebration from 2 - 4 p.m. The museum is open 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Where: Pacific Aviation Museum, Ford Island
Details: Admission to the museum starts at $15 for adults, $8 for children. Buy your tickets now on the museum's website.

Lei Chic Shop
Finnishing Touches
What:
Joyful prints, simple styles, and punches of color have all arrived with the launch of Finnish company Marimekko's U.S. online store. We love the explore function that lets you sort everything from throw pillows to 60s-inspired swing dresses by pattern, designer, theme or color. Heads up, Marimekko does not ship to Hawaii - but three businesses can help.
Details: Click here for some imported eye candy.

Plan
Set the Dates
What:
You have the ring, now you need help with everything else. The Wedding Cafe kicks off its popular Wednesday workshops this week with a topic that's not just for the bride: hair, makeup and fashion trends. Get there early to score good seats for the famed giveaways.
When: Wednesday, 6:30 p.m.
Where: The Wedding Cafe, Ward Warehouse.
Details: Sign up and check the schedule of all 10 workshops on The Wedding Cafe's website.
