Pineapples Boutique is in the Coconut Marketplace in Kapaa, which is on the eastern side of Kauai. This high-end clothing store fits in well with the other eccentric shops and dining establishments at Coconut Marketplace. 

On their website, Pineapples Boutique goes so far as to promise customers “a unique shopping experience.” But we wondered if that translates into “an enjoyable experience” or a “not-so-pleasant one?” We’ll give you our insights into this quandary in a bit.

The first Pineapples Boutique opened on the North Shore of Oahu in 2010. Currently, there are three locations, two of which are on Oahu and the third on Kauai. A drive through one of the many North Shore pineapple fields inspired the store’s name. And because the pineapple is the worldwide symbol of hospitality, they knew they had the perfect name for their stores. 

Now let’s get back to discussing “a unique shopping experience.” Based upon the glowing reviews we read, shoppers equated “unique” with the store’s exemplary service and custom-designed merchandise. Since the pineapple represents hospitality and is their brand name, patrons added they felt welcomed when shopping. Some added that the sales staff made them feel special and went out of their way to find clothing that best suited them. One client summed it best with, “Best dress shop on the island!”

Quality merchandise is another reason why shopping at Pineapples Boutique is unique. They carry apparel crafted by Zen Knits, Pineapples, and Bali Batiks, all of which are designed in Hawaii. And don’t assume they only cater to women’s fashion senses. Men will discover beautiful Hawaiian shirts in a rainbow of colors. If you’re shopping for children, you’ll be pleased to know they carry swimwear and other items. 

Women of all ages will love perusing the various dress styles offered by the three designers we previously listed. You’ll find something that’s gorgeous and perfect for casual events to those more elegant and perfect for a fancy night on the town. One-piece swimsuits and shorts are also available. And when you’re ready to accessorize, try on a pair of designer sandals or look for a piece of fine jewelry to compliment your outfit. 

As with anything of quality, prices tend to be on the high side. Female customers pointed out that they thought prices were reasonable. Some added that the dresses were not only beautiful but that the material was comfortable and breathable, making them perfect on those hot, humid Kauai days. 

If you’re a bargain hunter or shopping on a budget, Pineapples Boutique frequently runs sales at the store and online. 

If you’re looking for designer resort fashions that exude beauty and superb craftsmanship, we urge you to visit Pineapples Boutique in Kapaa. As their saying says, we believe you’ll have “a unique experience” that will have you coming back for more.
