Hop to It

Discounts, prizes abound during Kailua Boutique Hop

Kailua Boutique Hop

Hip. Lindy. Bunny. All great hops in our book.

But the greatest hop of all happens this Saturday when more than a dozen stores team up for the first-ever Kailua Boutique Hop for Hawaii Fashion Month. Pick up a stamp card from the check-in booth or any participating boutique, collect as many stamps as you can (no purchase necessary) and turn it in for a chance to win prizes and gift certificates. Insider tip: Each stamp is good for one raffle ticket, but a fully completed card also gets you a free gift!

Once you're done, browse the main stage and marketplace for food, live entertainment, local vendors and a ShopSuey charging station. Then at 6 p.m., catch a fashion show styled by Freshionable's Jenny Cao-Wu featuring looks from Maya Bella Boutique, Nomads Hawaii, Global Village, Mahina, Blue Lani, Kailua Verde, San Lorenzo, Flower Child, Gypsea and Twiss.

With so much going on, we created a handy map to keep track of the boutiques and their specials. So you can take a look (before you leap).
