Fashion line features Charlie Brown and gang
A series of hip-retro tees and tanks has been introduced to celebrate the 40th anniversary of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" this year.
The new Vintage Peanuts line spotlights Charles Schulz's beloved characters Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Woodstock and more as they appeared in the 1960s -- a time when Schulz and the strip were at the height of their popularity.
Available at Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, specialty retailers and lisakline.com (under "Vintage Tees"), the shirts feature a mix of color, vintage graphics, rhinestones and appliqués for a combination of retro appeal and contemporary fashion sensibility.
Fans of the line include Hawaii dancer and "Dancing with the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba (shown above wearing a $56 tank) and other young Hollywood celebs such as Lindsay Lohan, Amber Tamblyn, Thora Birch and Fergie of the Black-Eyed Peas.
Puppets head downtown
A free puppet show will be offered in Chinatown tomorrow as part of First Friday festivities.
The ARTS at Marks Garage is targeting families that live in the area and are most affected by the crowds that come downtown on the first Friday of each month for the special art-related events.
Diann Boone, an artist and art teacher, will conduct the storytelling/puppet show session and will also lead a children's puppet-making activity, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at Smith Beretania Park.
SATs to be illuminated
Kaimuki Public Library will host "101 Test Secrets: Demystifying the SAT," a free program for high school students at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Kaplan Test Preparation, a subsidiary of the Washington Post, will conduct the one-hour program. Kaplan Instructor Max Mooney will discuss the importance of the SAT in college admissions and share strategies for raising scores.
Registration is required. Call 733-8422 or visit the library, 1041 Koko Head Ave.
