Easter Boutique Box

Last week we introduced our first Boutique Box and it sold out on day one. So many generous people are sending gifts to clients, to family members, and to friends. It’s really been wonderful to see the notes of encouragement, of celebration, and of friendship.

We know how difficult it will be for many of us this Easter who are unable to celebrate with family. Our family usually has around 30 people at our house that day and we continue to have a a massive Easter egg hunt every year. This is despite the fact that that most of the kids are in their teens now. Rare golden eggs that hold $20 bills keep them in the fun with the little kids. Last year one of the younger kids found one of the golden eggs and apparently seeing little use for a $20 bill, made a trade with one of the older kids (all his candy filled eggs for the gold egg). They both felt they got the better end of that deal.

This year, I’m sending my loved ones a Boutique Box to let them know I wish they were celebrating with us. Kelly of Bishop Boutique and Elizabeth of The Shoe Hive and The Hive have included some great items in this box. As you all know, I’m a candle addict. So, I’ve included one of my favorite candles and other goodies in the box. Given the Easter theme, we’ve asked Fleurir Chocolates to add their stunning Easter chocolates to the mix as well. They are so gorgeous that they are almost too pretty to eat. (Unfortunately, that theory did not prove true for me.)

Once again, these Boutique Boxes are limited so please email quickly if you are interested. Emails should be sent to Elizabeth@theshoehive.com. We will be delivering these locally and providing curbside pickup as well.

Wishing you a happy and healthy Easter weekend!



  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.

Located in historic Old Town Alexandria, for more than 17 years Bellacara has been Northern Virginia's preeminent boutique for high end cosmetic, skincare and haircare products. At Bellacara you will find premiere beauty products that have been carefully edited by the store’s owner, Angela Sitilides, who personally tests all the products sold in store. The boutique carries only the best product lines – Kiehl’s, Jouer, Dr. Dennis Gross, Christophe Robin, Moroccan Oil, Bumble & Bumble, Fresh, Molton Brown, Skinceuticals, Smashbox, Stila, Mario Badescu, Clarins, Dermalogica, Kevyn Aucoin, Kai, Child, St. Tropez, Smith and Cult, and many more.
