Huntington Beach, California (PRWEB) May 26, 2017
The first Cariloha store in Orange County, Calif. is opening in Huntington Beach at the Pacific City outdoor shopping mall at 21010 PCH #D100 with a grand opening celebration on Saturday, June 3 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Not only will guests receive a complimentary bamboo lei just for stopping by the store, but the first 100 customers will receive a complimentary pair of bamboo socks with any purchase. Other grand opening festivities include drawings (at no cost) for Cariloha bamboo bed sheets, live music by Funk Shui Planet, small bites and refreshments, and appearance by world-champion skimboarder and professional wakesurfer, Austin Keen.
Cariloha store visitors will also enjoy feeling the luxuriously soft difference of Cariloha’s entire line of eco-friendly bamboo products, including mattress, pillows and sheets, along with men’s and women’s shirts, shorts, socks, underwear, fitness wear and more – all made from eco-friendly bamboo fabrics.
The name ‘Cariloha’ comes from a combination of ‘Cari’ for Caribbean and ‘loha’ for Aloha from Hawaii: the Cariloha bamboo concept was inspired by the breezy, relaxed lifestyle of the islands. Cariloha is the only multi-store retailer in the world to provide an entire store experience that’s completely merchandised with products made from eco-friendly bamboo fabrics. Bamboo is one of the most sustainable, renewable resources on the planet and produces more oxygen than a comparable number of trees.
Local Cariloha Huntington Beach store owners, Kevin and Lisa Long, first experienced the softness of Cariloha bamboo bedding and clothing while visiting the Cariloha store in Las Vegas. They were impressed by the product quality and the corporate values and, after 30 years of corporate jobs, decided they wanted to do something completely different like opening their own store and working together.
“In addition to hiring local people to help run the store, we believe the products are incredibly soft and comfortable and environmentally friendly,” said Lisa Long. “We hope the local clientele will embrace our soft, cool, clean and green bamboo products as much as we have.”
Cariloha bamboo fabrics offer unique benefits. They’re 3 degrees cooler than cotton and wick moisture away from the skin. They also repel odors and allergens naturally without any harmful chemicals. Above all, bamboo fabrics are unbelievably soft compared to luxury fabrics like cashmere and silk but at a fraction of the price.
“Customers in this area are looking for natural, eco-friendly products that will meet their demands for luxury, style and performance,” Long said. “Cariloha is dedicated to providing a unique, educational shopping experience by using display panels that help to inform customers of the bamboo features and benefits of the comfortable, green fabric.”
Cariloha has been rapidly expanding its international and domestic presence for the past 10 years now with 20+ corporately owned and 40+ independently owned stores in 16 countries. Other stores are found in St. Thomas, Barbados, Mexico, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Bonaire, Belize and various cities throughout the continental U.S., Alaska and Hawaii.
“When you think of bamboo, large green shoots in the jungle likely come to mind,” said Jeff Pedersen, Cariloha Founder and CEO. “Not many people know that bamboo can actually be made into irresistibly soft fabrics for making apparel and bedding at little‐to‐no risk to the environment. It’s a comfier way to save the world.”
