Sponsored Edition: Petal to the Metal

Lei ChicA glance at your watch and - Yikes!

You meant to catch a few rays. Instead it appears you caught more than few zzzzs during your ”quick” suntan touch up on the beach.

Now you’re racing the clock until your most punctual friend’s birthday party, searching desperately for something to wear and a gift that doesn’t look last minute. Wrestling with Waikiki traffic would get you in a real jam but you don’t have time to get to your go-to boutique downtown.

Fortunately, your birthday wish has already been answered.

Lei ChicFlower Child boutique just opened its second location on Kapahulu Avenue. Inside the aqua-and-coral oasis you’ll find everything from Language to Audrey, but the emphasis is on local designers. You’ll be tempted to slip on a gauzy, woven top sundress by Tiare Hawaii or make waves with a vibrant, vintage-material tube dress by Kauai’s machinemachine. And you won’t be able to resist trying on one of Wimini’s extra-comfy retro tees or Khush’s ultra-girlie ruffle-top maxi.

Lei Chic Okay, so you’re going to be a little late. But your friend will forgive you when you hand over a present of beachy earrings by Big Island’s Jewels of the Beach, Kai lotion, a Voluspa candle, or whimsical notepads and makeup bags.

It’s just the one-stop shop you need to restore your breezy living.

Shop this weekend for 20 percent off selected apparel.

Flower Child Kapahulu is located at 746 Kapahulu Ave. It is open Tues. - Fri., 11 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., Sat. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Call 808.737.0288 for more information or check out Flower Child Kapahulu's facebook page.
