I hope you join me in wishing Todd and our friends and family at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, a happy anniversary! I can hardly believe it has been two years since the official opening and I know the excitement is building as they prepare for their upcoming expansion to the pool and dining areas with Ka Maka Landing and Ulu Cafe on October 19.
Earlier this year, we celebrated the opening of Hale Manu, a new contemporary boutique featuring authentic Hawaiian and luxurious lifestyle merchandise. I like to consider this location a hidden treasure because it’s just off the beaten path past the main lobby. Be sure to make it a “must visit” on your list after you arrive. Hale Manu is also home to our line of graphic apparel tees as well as Dooney & Bourke – that’s worth the trip right there!
But one of my personal favorites is the Maui Divers Tahitian Pearl jewelry collection.
A little closer to the main lobby is where you’ll find Kālepa’s Store. For those of you who have never been to Aulani before, here’s a sneak peek at what’s inside. The Aloha Retro all-over print is the fan favorite here. Check it out!
But it’s Duffy who everyone wants to take home… and with these two aloha and Aulani inspired outfits, who wouldn’t?
Over the next couple months I hope to take you shopping around the resort, so I hope you have your bags packed, sunscreen ready and are ready to shop until you drop. Just keep in mind that we’ll be doing a lot of window shopping, as most of the merchandise seen at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa locations are only available there.
Until next time…
