Yuki Gleason lives in Pearl City, Satomi Price in Ewa, but when the two friends decided to open a women’s boutique last December, they chose Kailua.
“It’s just a hot place right now,” explains Gleason. “Everybody wants to be in Kailua.”

Gleason and Price were born and raised in Japan and moved to Hawaii about 13 years ago. They met here, and like many women found a common passion for fashion.
Their boutique Blue Lani Hawaii offers a great selection of cute and edgy fashions for the beach or city, and at affordable prices.
Some of the brands you’ll find are AnM, Joyce, Lani, Enti, Classic and more. The store also carries a great selection of accessories and jewelry, including original Blue Lani jewelry designed by Gleason and Price.
There also are some great gift items, including the newest arrival of organic gourmet artisan lollipops from Eventful Sweets on Maui, available exclusively at Blue Lani on Oahu.
