Lessons in Tying Scarves: A Special Event

Do you find yourself purchasing scarves and then never wearing them because you don’t know how to tie them? Are you perplexed by the idea of a spring scarf altogether? Well, we are here to answer all of your scarf-related questions and to provide scarf solutions! This Thursday, March 30th from 7-9PM, we will host blogger and author Lauren Friedman of “50 Ways to Wear a Scarf” for a special scarf-tying event.

Bring in your own trouble scarf for ideas on how to wear it or find a new one to wear at The Hive! Lauren will walk us through a handful of her favorite scarf-tying tips, too. The event is limited to the first twenty-five to sign up. You can RSVP here. The event is free of charge as long as you sign up in advance. (Side note: Lauren’s brief presentation will start at 7:20-ish so please don’t be too late if you sign up.)

For this event, we’ve brought in a limited selection of scarves by Yarnz, Piccolo and Janavi and all of them will be marked down 20% for event participants. Booze, bites, and lots of fun–we hope you’ll join us!

Everyone’s Favorite Bag Brand: A Trunk Show

Some things just never get old, and somehow Annabel Ingall turns out new and equally beautiful bags every season. It doesn’t matter that we’ve carried the brand for years, we’re still excited by what they’re offering! This spring, The Shoe Hive is teaming up with the designer behind our bestselling bag for this week’s trunk show.

All weekend long you’ll get 20 percent off all Annabel Ingall purchases, whether you leave with a bag in hand or place an order for one to arrive in the future. We received the list of product the company was sending us for the special event and it is three pages long! But even if that’s not enough you can still get anything you see on their website at the discounted price. (Hint: this is a great time to shop for Mother’s Day!)

When it comes to handbags, it doesn’t get better than Annabel Ingall; her bags are classic but interesting, durable but feminine. Elizabeth, Christen, and Madeline all three carry her bags regularly and it’s just a matter of time before the rest of the team does, too!

A Veronica Beard Trunk Show & Giveaway

Since we opened last September we have consistently reloaded our racks at The Hive with clothing from Veronica Beard, and still we can’t seem to keep it in stock! It turns out our customers love the brand just as much as we do, and we could not be more pleased.

To celebrate the arrival of spring and all of the fun fashions that come with it, we are hosting a Veronica Beard trunk show this weekend, Friday, March 10 through Sunday, March 12. Join us for this exclusive showing of the brand’s Spring 2017 collection and any Veronica Beard purchases (including special orders) will be 20% off. Our brand rep–one of our favorite people–will be on location to help with sizing and fit as well as styling.

The pieces our rep is bringing with her will only be available through Sunday; they get shipped back the next morning. This is your only chance to shop an expanded selection of the brand’s collection in person at a discount!

And you haven’t even heard the best news yet! The Veronica Beard team is generously giving us a VB jacket to raffle off–the only requirement to participate is the in-person entry of your name and email address. No purchase required!

Have any questions about this event? Email us at info@theshoehive.com or give us a call 703.548.7110.

Here’s a taste of the pieces we will have available:

Transition into Spring with Paul Green


We started carrying Paul Green shoes a couple of years ago after learning from a friend that they were the most comfortable shoes she owned! After investigating the brand, we discovered Paul Green’s shoes lived up to the hype and made a great addition to our offerings.

We’ve had such success with the designer’s styles since then we went heavier than ever in our Paul Green selection this season–the styles pictured here are just a few of the ones we have in store now. Realizing that they make great transition shoes–worn best on days when the mornings are cool and the afternoons warms–we decided our Paul Green shoes were due for their fifteen minutes of fame. Hence this weekend’s promotion at The Shoe Hive: 20% off all new Paul Green styles including booties, slides, pumps, and more!

30% Off Jeans, Tees & Sneakers


As temperatures rise, we return to our fashion favorites for weekend wear: jeans, t-shirts and sneakers. Conveniently, our shelves and racks are filled to the brim with just such pieces in every color and style imaginable. So to celebrate this unseasonably warm weekend, we’re offering 30% off jeans and tees at The Hive and sneakers at The Shoe Hive starting tomorrow through Sunday.

Have questions? Give us a call at 703.548.7110 or email us at info@theshoehive.com.

The Warehouse Sale is Saturday!

The Super Bowl of Shopping is here. This year’s annual Alexandria Warehouse Sale is this Saturday, February 4 from 9am to 4pm at The Westin located off Duke Street in the Carlyle neighborhood of Alexandria. It will be bigger and better than ever!


This is the second year the event will be held at the Westin and we are so excited to have secured the larger, more convenient location a second time. With over twenty-five vendors, we are going to need the space! New attendees include Pacers, Lynn Louisa, Lettie Gooch and several others. And the word on the street is that Lululemon is bringing 2,000 items to sell! You won’t find deeper discounts and it is a great way to discover new local stores with which you may not have been familiar.
