I just thought I'd share my LV experience here in Maui. I stopped by both the Wailea and Lahaina stores and at both stores the SAs were very helpful and courteous. I probably spent about 45 minutes at both stores checking out different things. I first fell in love with the epi bowling montaigne pm in ivory and somehow ended up with the epi speedy 25 in ivory. After taking it back to the hotel room and attempting to take out the piece of cardboard my SA stuck in there, I decided that I should go back and exchange it for the bowling montaigne. I'll be heading there this morning to make that exchange. I hope it's still there. I was pleasantly surprised to see that prices were lower than CA (i was told that it was 4-12% less) plus the tax is a little more than 4%. My SA also informed me that I can now order from the store directly as I am in their system, they won't charge tax and shipping is about $30. I think I'll be doing that from now on. I'll post pictures when I get back home.
