introducing ivy lane linens & living

Yesterday evening, we celebrated with our friends Alex Deringer and Courtney Cox the opening of their new stores: Ivy Lane Linens and Ivy Lane Living. The two stores sit at opposite ends of the charming courtyard tucked in between Fairfax and Royal at 309 Cameron Street in Old Town Alexandria.



Ivy Lane Linens and Ivy Lane Living are the retail spaces born out of their full-service interior design firm that curates casually elegant family dwellings. Alex and Courtney work as a team on a full range of projects from full house renovations to one-room makeovers. And you can now shop Ivy Lane’s fresh aesthetic!

Ivy Lane Living houses a collection of antique and new pieces–here customers can see and feel the quality of Ivy Lane’s custom private-label upholstered furniture–beautiful pillows, an ever-changing display of works by inspiring artists, and unique new and vintage home accessories, one-of-a-kind treasures sourced from estates and antique dealers around the country. The Ivy Lane Living design studio hosts monthly trunk show events to introduce customers to noteworthy artisans. You can sign up for the newsletter for event invitations here! In the meantime, pay Ivy Lane Living a visit this weekend during their open house today and tomorrow from 10AM to 5PM.

Just across the brick courtyard, Ivy Lane Linens infuses an age-old tradition with an au courant vibe, specializing in bespoke embroidery that is simply extraordinary. Custom linens for bedding, tabletop, and bath are on offer in an array of colorways to complement any decor, with vintage tableware and a thoughtful selection of oh-so-perfect hostess gifts also available. Ivy Lane Linens will be open every Wednesday through Saturday from 10AM to 5PM.

Selected goods from each store will soon be available online.

  • 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.
