It’s a Plaid Trunk Show!

Four days from now is one of our biggest days of the year, Plaid Friday. I was trying to think of how we could kick off this great week. It really is a fun time to own a store, especially in Old Town. Then it occurred to me, why not have a Plaid Trunk Show? But what designer line has enough plaid to pull that off?

Frank & Eileen of course! They have the cutest plaid shirts and they are perfect for this time of year. Nothing says “time for the holidays” like plaid. Look at all the bows and the lamp posts around this old port city founded by Scottish merchants. Plaid is everywhere in Old Town. Just think about the Scottish Walk in a few days: Alexandria becomes a sea of plaid and you will want to be a part of it.

So, starting Monday, we will have tons of plaid shirts and they are all 20 percent off. Don’t worry, all the great solids will be here too, and you can place special orders of course. We will have all your favorite cuts and fabrics from Frank & Eileen. So, stock up and save. You can never have too many, and they are all made in the USA out of the finest Italian fabrics. If you haven’t tried them before, this is your chance.



  • 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.
