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!

This Weekend: Annual Gigi New York Trunk Show

This will be our third annual Gigi New York trunk show leading up to the holidays and each year it just gets bigger and better. What hasn’t changed is how popular this event is–easily one of our top five! As we’ve done in the past, we are offering 20% off all Gigi products, on-site monogramming and a special selection of styles unique to the trunk show. That means whatever doesn’t sell goes back on Monday! Plus, if you don’t see what you’re looking for we can easily special order anything in time for the holidays. We hope to see you soon!


A Surprise Trunk Show with Heather Benjamin!

Surprise Trunk Show with Heather Benjamin!

Why surprise? Well, because we hadn’t actually planned on having a trunk show in December.

Our trunk show series is typically in November, but there are only so many weekends between the 1st and the 30th. We couldn’t fit Heather Benjamin in then but felt her designs were worthy of her own weekend-long spotlight before the holidays.

Dozens of new pieces arrived just this morning and we are busy tagging and displaying them in time for the trunk show to start tomorrow. All styles (new and in-store) will be 20% off Friday through Sunday only. Take advantage of the brief sale to finish (or start!) your holiday shopping.

Here’s a sneak peek of some of our favorite trunk show styles:








Kiki Lynn Trunk Show on Small Business Saturday

The beauty of Kiki Lynn’s clothing is that the designs effortlessly walk the line between dressy and casual. The brand’s iconic shirt dress, for example, is just as easily worn with boots and a cozy scarf as it is with chunky gold jewelry and a high heel. Made by a local Alexandria mom and her team, the pieces are cut and crafted with knowledge of the female form, ensuring that they are flattering in their fit and come in fabrics that look and feel luxurious.

This coming Saturday, we are hosting a one-day trunk show with a special selection of the brand’s winter collection. All Kiki Lynn merchandise will be 20% off that day only, and customers will have the chance to meet the designer herself between 10AM and 2PM. In celebration of Small Business Saturday, we will also provide a gift with purchase and will enter shoppers that day into a raffle for a host of goodies. Join The Shoe Hive and Kiki Lynn on Saturday; shop small and score big!
