For the second installment of my luxury shopping guide, we’re going to visit the Saint Laurent Hawaii Waikiki store on Luxury Row. This store has a special place in my heart because this is where I bought my first YSL item ever. We were in Oahu celebrating a friend’s bachelorette party and decided one day to all go shopping together. My plan was to only be a spectator and just watch all the other girls buy stuff. Well, the next thing I know, I’ve fallen for the “Hawaii discount” deal and now I’m the one going shopping. I convinced myself that I would have spent hundreds extra if I was back in California and that I’m actually saving money. So, long story short, I ended up buying the YSL black envelope chain wallet and never looked back. To this day, I still have that purse and still use it all the time.

SAINT LAURENT HAWAII (WAIKIKI)

Address : 2114 Kalakaua Ave, Honolulu, HI 96815

Phone : 1.808.924.6900

Saint Laurent Hawaii Pricing : 20% Off Everything* 10% as of 7/1/2021

*Prices are not reflected on the sticker. The sales associate will discount 20% 10% from the sticker price at the end.

 

I visited the Saint Laurent Waikiki store once on this trip and really couldn’t find anything I wanted to buy. Granted, I was looking for a pair of boots and Hawaii probably isn’t the best place to be looking. If you are looking for a purse though, they have a very wide selection in almost every color. Even some colors that aren’t even online like the Fuschia Solferino Small Satchel (see below). Apparently, that color just came out this season and is a special kind of pink for that purse. There were other new styles that kind of looked like something similar to *cough cough* Gucci, but they had your typical YSL classics too.

 

IS IT REALLY 20% OFF?

If you’ve read my blog post about the Louis Vuitton Waikiki store, you would know that not everything is discounted across the board at LV. At Saint Laurent, everything is actually 20% off. The sticker price is the actual price you’ll see over in the mainland U.S and online. They will take that sticker price and then discount it 20% and then add on the local Hawaii tax. I’m not sure why some stores choose to have a special Hawaii sticker price and why some stores just discount across the board. I feel like giving an overall discount is easier for everyone to understand.

UPDATE 7/9/2021: BIG NEWS EVERYONE! A wonderful reader just informed me that Saint Laurent is now only offering 10% off at their Hawaii stores. I have confirmed this with one of the sales associates there as well. She said that this was very sudden for the staff and started on July 1, 2021. So, please keep in mind that all the information on this post is now old and should reflect 10% off only.

 

SERVICE AT THE SAINT LAURENT HAWAII (WAIKIKI)

Since I didn’t buy anything, I can’t really comment too much about the service. Although, the gentleman that helped me was very polite and accommodating. He let me browse around the store and look at different purses without intruding too much. I absolutely hate it when sales associates are literally following you around the store like a hawk. I understand it’s to deter people from possibly stealing, but isn’t that what your security guard is for? Or at least you can just put a security lock on all the bags or something. Maybe it’s just me, but I find it really intimidating and not a fun shopping experience. Overall, I felt that the service at the Saint Laurent Waikiki was pretty much what you would expect for a high-end luxury store.
