Dresses & Dressings: An Evening of Fun, Fashion, Great Taste
By Maui Now Staff
Fustini’s will host a LulaPops pop up event on Friday, June 12, from 7 to 9 p.m. Guests can try on LulaPops’ women’s soft, stretchy and comfortable outfits while enjoying appetizers dressed with Fustini’s olive oils and balsamic vinegars.
Customers will take home a free gift with oil or vinegar purchase; Fustini’s will validate parking for its customers.
“We are very excited to host LulaPops pop up store in our tasting room at the Shops at Wailea” said Fustini’s Maui Store Manager Jill Sullivan. “We’ll also be featuring some of our most popular oil and vinegar pairings with items such as caprese salad, bread, pulled pork, grilled vegetables and brownies. It will be an event to remember.”
Fustini’s opened on Maui last June and has already received the support of such notable local restaurants as Mama’s Fish House, Gannons, Haliʻimaile General Store and Matteo’s.
”We are delighted to be in Maui and hosting this event with LulaPops,” Jim Milligan, founder and owner of Fustini’ s said. “We always love to see our fellow Maui residents in the store. You’ll find the highest quality olive oils and balsamic vinegars here and our staff will help you pair them for flavorful and nutritional salad dressings, marinades and sauces.”
‘It’s great to partner with another retailer like Fustini’ s that appreciates quality and service,” said Lisa Racoma, creator of Maui LuLaPops. “It’s our dream to help the women of all ages, shapes and sizes get comfortable and cute with us. I know everyone is going to love the flavor combinations of Fustini’s. It’s amazing; it will be a feel good night for the senses.”
Other developments at Fustini’s include the new Fustini’s Pantry, offering products that complement oils and vinegars, including the new line of Fustini’s private-label tapenades, spreads and jams, and other items, such as pasta, honeys, dessert sauces, toffee, macadamia nut brittle and salts.
Fustini’ s own cookbook series has grown to five, each with their own focus, offering scores of ideas and inspiration. Fustini’s products are healthy, bold and flavorful additions to so many recipes–everything from appetizers and entrees to desserts and even beverages. Vinegars are naturally low in calories and oils are high in anti-oxidants, so they’re as good for you as they are for the dishes you prepare. And since they’re imported from select artisans and small-batch growers around the world, cooking with Fustini’s always means cooking with freshness and quality.
