You’re Invited: Fall Happenings At The Hive And The Shoe Hive

After Labor Day it seems like we all hit the ground running and we really don’t stop until the New Year. There is the start of school, fall sports and so many events. After a laid back August, the renewed pace of the Washington-area in the fall can be a little jolting.

Here at the Hive and The Shoe Hive we are no different. Yes I have been away, but that just means I’ve been in interesting places, sitting on my laptop planning!  We have so much going on and I am so ready to get back to work on the floor to see everyone. I wanted to make sure I shared with all of you the happenings for the next few months so you can mark your calendars and see what you might be able to attend. We would love to see you at everything.

  • The latest from Elizabeth
I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
