Dress the PartKaua‘i

HILO HATTIE is not just a shopping destination—it’s an experience. After being greeted at the door with shell lei, shoppers are treated to refreshments, Kona coffee tasting and sarong demonstrations as they sort through racks of Hawaiian clothing and shelves of gourmet food items and gifts.

The department store, established in 1963 on Kaua‘i, is the world’s largest manufacturer of Hawaiian apparel, with sizes ranging from infant to 5XL. The store produces its own gourmet food items, which include candies, jams and jellies, cookies, syrups and dressings.

In LIHU‘E, Hilo Hattie is open 365 days a year and offers free shuttle service from most Kaua‘i hotels.

In addition to Hilo Hattie, you can also find lu‘au-appropriate aloha wear in local shops around the island. Stylish picks include REYN SPOONER at Grand Hyatt Kauai or TORI RICHARD at St. Regis Princeville.
