Honolulu’s first-of-its-kind Spring Fashion and Shopping Festival happens March 3-9, 2008 Honolulu - Ala Moana Center, the world’s largest outdoor shopping center and Hawaii’s largest shopping destination, announced today that it will host Honolulu’s first major week-long spring fashion and shopping festival March 3-9, 2008. The event, named "Shop a Le`a - Seven Blissful Days of Shopping Euphoria," will become Ala Moana Center’s new annual signature fashion event celebrating the very best in global brands and merchandise.

Shop a Le`a will present shopping enthusiasts from all over Hawaii and the Pacific with a myriad experiences in fashion, beauty, active lifestyle, home entertaining, family, travel and cuisine.
