CHRISTMAS ALOHA SHIRTS

In for the holidays are our special feature Hawaiian Christmas Aloha Shirts.  These shirts are styled in the Hawaiian Aloha fashion and feature special holiday designs.  We have stocked up for the holidays two styles in sizes Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large, while supplies last.   Our current stock is our only shipment received for the holidays so shop early to ensure getting the size and style you want.   We believe we are the only store in the Chicago area carrying these hard-to-find Christmas Aloha Shirts.  

Dress in the perfect Aloha attire for the holidays.  For your pre-Christmas company or family party, they make for an excellent gift that can be worn before Christmas and at the family Christmas party.  For your company holiday party, consider having your hosting staff wear these matching festive shirts so your guests can identify the hosts running the party.  Don't know what to get the boss for Christmas?  These shirts are a rarity that will be such great fun.

Shown below each an image of the whole shirt with a close-up of part of the design below each one.

HAWAIIAN CHRISTMAS MUSIC

Fill your home with Hawaiian Christmas music this season.  We have a variety of CD's by famous Hawaiian artists.

PAREOS

 

Pareos are one of our most popular Christmas — or any occasion, for that matter — gift items for that special female in your life.   They are popular because one size fits all and because they are so versatile.  A Pareo can be worn on or off the beach.  They can be worn over a swim-suit. shorts, and even capris or other slim slacks for that special island look.  We carry both long and short Pareos.  The short comes approximately to the knee, and the long goes all the way to the floor when worn at the waist.  The long Pareo is most versatile and can be worn a variety of ways, even tied into an on-the-spot cocktail dress.  Full instructions on how to use and the ways a Pareo can be worn are included.

We carry a wide variety of Pareos.  Shown below is just a small sample of the color and prints we have in stock everyday.
