INSPIRATION FOR DADS & GRADS: JUNE EVENTS AND IDEAS Dads and grads aren’t always easy to shop for, but here’s some inspiration from your fellow merchants.
Tiffany & Co. For a gift that will be treasured for a lifetime, think Tiffany & Co. Having set the standard in watch making for more than 150 years, Tiffany offers a variety of watches. Peerless Tiffany designs compliment pedigree Swiss mechanics creating gifts that are instantly recognized and deeply valued. Bernard K Passman Gallery Tipping their hat to dads and grads, the gallery has created a special collection this month of one-of-kind and limited-edition designs in jewelry and sculpture. The Cos Bar During the store’s Father’s Day Promotion June 10 through 19 anticipate special “gift with purchase” offers when selecting from its array of famous men’s grooming products, shaving collections and designer fragrances. Back up plan? Plastic. If you’re still stuck or running short on time, many of our stores offer gift cards and certificates.
FROM TOP: Available at The Cos Bar, the sleek new design of the ProGlide Power Shave Set features the latest technology from Gillette, and includes bonus travel sizes of The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave® – Pre-Shave Oil Pump 1 fl. oz., Shaving Cream Pump 1.7 fl. oz., Genuine Badger Shaving Brush, After-Shave Balm Pump 1 fl. oz.

THESHOPSATWAILEA.COM 2.0 As mentioned at the spring merchant meeting we are redesigning TheShopsAtWailea.com. The updated site will flow more intuitively, be easier to navigate, easier to find, allow for social sharing, integrate our social media channels and more. One of the most important enhancements we’re making is giving our merchants a greater site presence, building a broader opportunity for you to share your story, provide detailed information and images, and promote your brands.
LETTER FROM THE G.M.
Watch for a request from management shortly seeking confirmation on contact details, images and how you wish to see your store listed on the new site. And thank you in advance for your cooperation in returning this information in a timely manner. TheShopsAtWailea.com 2.0 is going to be grand.
Lights. Camera. Action! So there I was, sitting and waiting for the feature indie film “Nowhere Boy,” a story about the early life of John Lennon before The Beatles. The evening was truly magical sitting under the stars at the Celestial Cinema watching the short films on a ginormous screen and sound so clear and perfect you would have thought you were in an enclosed, state-of-the-art theatre. There’s an intermission between the shorts and the feature film and someone sits in the seat next to mine and I look over to say “Aloha,” and the young man answers with a “Hi. How are you?” Nothing too unusual about this except that it was Zac Efron. Yes, that Zac Efron. We chatted a while and I told him that I had actually seen a couple of his movies and thought they were quite good. Nice young man. No bodyguards, no entourage, no dark glasses at night. No attitude. Very refreshing for a young man who has achieved so much so soon. Wailea will once again host the 12th Annual Maui Film Festival, June 15-19. The Shops at Wailea has always been a proud sponsor of the festival and we are pleased to again be a major sponsor for this year’s celebration. If you have never before partaken in what has become Wailea’s signature event you are missing quite an experience. From a fabulous bevy of spectacular cinema to The Taste of Wailea, The Taste of Chocolate, as well as a number of very happening parties such as the Starry Night Moon Dance at Tommy Bahama’s Tropical Café, the Maui Film Festival truly is no ka oi. I can’t guarantee you’ll run into Zac Efron, but you will have some magical memories.
