Designer threads on parade

Looking for designer bargains? Check out Central Union Church Thrift Shop's Spring Fashion Show, 6 to 9 p.m. today at the parish hall. Runway names include Tommy Bahama and Ralph Lauren for men, and Jessica McClintock and St. John for women all for sale.

Proceeds go to the thrift shop's outreach programs that include furniture donations for needy families and college scholarships. The free event includes a potluck supper, silent auction and music by Puamana. And yes, the clothes are new. For details: 440-3055.

Guys, we know shopping's not your bag. So here are some get-me-home-quick gift ideas for your valentine:

  • Strawberries hand-dipped in dark chocolate, $28 per pound, at the Honolulu Chocolate Co. in Ward Centre.

  • She bakes! Try a molten chocolate cake mix ($24) and heart-shaped potholders ($18 for two) from Williams-Sonoma at Ala Moana Center.

  • Luxe (and French) lingerie from J. Boudoir Corsetiere, at Ward Warehouse.
