Weekend Picks - April 4, 2013

Six reasons to do something this weekend

Lei Chic Shop
Buy and Large
Homecoming's massive warehouse sale returns with 50 to 75 percent off brands like Jeffrey Campbell, UNIF, Finders Keepers, Motel Rocks, Mink Pink and more - some for as low as $20. This time around, look for merchandise to be grouped by size and extra staff on hand to help customers. Our advice: go as early as possible (last time, a line had already formed by 10 a.m.) and be prepared to try things on sans dressing room.
When: Sunday, noon-5 p.m.
Where: Fresh Cafe, 831 Queen St.
Details: Cash and credit cards accepted.

Yogi Wear
Score up to 75 percent off at Lily Lotus' warehouse sale. Sift through $10, $20, and $30 racks of samples, tanks, yoga pants and more (again, go early - there's always a crowd).
When: Saturday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
Where: 3160 Waialae Ave.
Details: Cash only.
