Tibi: All about the Colors and Cuts

Yes, it’s true you’ll find a wide array of grey t-shirts and “fancy” sweatshirts and menswear-inspired pieces at The Hive. This casual, cool vibe mostly results from the way Elizabeth and Christen dress themselves, an inevitable influence on the clothing we buy for our store. However, more than ever before, our store is now filled to the brim with feminine, colorful clothing that will carry you through whatever the day throws at you.

With the help of Ulla Johnson and Xirena–other sources of new spring arrivals, this influx of feminine cuts and bold colors stems primarily from the delivery of the latest Tibi collection. Fuller pants and skirts with wider waistbands (very flattering!) are topped with truly unique blouses, all in bold colors or shades of white and unexpected fabrics.

Here are some of the newly arrived Tibi pieces at The Hive. For sizing inquiries or to purchase by phone, please call us at 703.548.7110 or email us at

Will you be our Valentine?

In our opinion, Valentine’s Day is a little like New Year’s Eve. Every year, the hype seems to grow but the event itself rarely lives up to our expectations. Well this year we’re changing that: Spend Valentine’s Day with us! We’ll hang out, indulge in champagne and chocolate, talk spring trends and do a little shopping.

Our styling and management staff will be on hand to answer any and all styling questions you might have or to steer you toward the shoes and clothing that will carry you the furthest in seasons to come. Additionally, our friend and chef extraordinaire Tallulah (who also happens to be Penelope’s sister) will be catering the event. Take 20% off any full-priced items by showing us your RSVP to this event, limited to the first 50 people who sign up. There’s a ton of new spring arrivals that won’t otherwise go on sale until the Summer Sidewalk Sale…if they make it that far!

Will you be our Valentine? RSVP here.


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.

60% Off Starts Today!

Starting today, our sale merchandise at BOTH STORES moves to 60% off. The sale includes shoes, hats, handbags and socks at The Shoe Hive; and everything from dresses to denim and more bags at The Hive.

Think you’ve seen everything our sale has to offer? Think again! We just moved a TON of new product from full-price to sale at The Hive from brands like Saloni, Woolrich, Jenni Kayne and more! At The Shoe Hive, we decided to markdown more of our jewelry to make room for new brands that should arrive soon.

Give us a call if you want to check on styles and sizes: 703.548.7105 for The Shoe Hive and 703.548.7110 for The Hive. And we can always be reached at!

New Jewelry, Part Two: Diane Cotton at The Shoe Hive

We are actively working to up our jewelry game in 2017. Toward this effort, we introduced you yesterday to Mignonne Gavigan scarf necklaces carried at The Hive. But at The Shoe Hive, we have stocked our case with Diane Cotton’s designs.

Diane Cotton has created elegant jewelry out of her Newport Beach studio since 2000. Her eponymous line, known for its long, beaded necklaces with tassels and other vintage components, got its start on a whim. At the time, Cotton was on her final sales call as a rep for Ralph Lauren jewelry when the customer rejected the entire line. Not wanting to end on a sour note, she pulled her own designs from her bag and sold them on the spot.

We encountered Diane Cotton’s designs entirely by accident ourselves. On a recent trip to New York, we paid a visit to a showroom in hopes of finding a new scarf line. We not only discovered beautiful new scarves (which should arrive end of February) but we left with a bag of Diane Cotton’s jewelry to sell! The pieces we brought to The Shoe Hive include a variety of styles and lengths, and incorporated everything from Ethiopian glass beads, vintage Afghan tassels, and Chinese carved glass to brass, mother of pearl, onyx, and turquoise. We hope you love Cotton’s necklaces as much as we do!
