Marion Parke Trunk Show

If my memory serves me correctly, I think Marion Parke is the original brand that launched our trunk show series at The Shoe Hive a few years back.

We had just started to carry the line, which had newly launched in 2016. We thought a trunk show was a great way to let our customers know what made this then-new brand so unique. Our representative, Stephanie, came in town and taught us all about why Marion Parke was taking the footwear world by storm. In case you haven’t read about her before, she is a podiatric surgeon who wanted to finally make a luxury footwear line that was comfortable and beautiful.

This summer, I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts and Marion was a guest. If you have time, take a listen; you will understand her interlocking passion for foot health and footwear.

This year we won’t have Stephanie in the store, but we will have Marion live on Instagram! Join Marion and Alicia of Tulle Box to hear how to make Marion Parke shoes part of your fall wardrobe – despite the fact we are all dressing differently these days. Yes, these shoes are an investment, but once you try them, you will understand why. The craftsmanship and comfort is like no other brand around. They each have a medical-grade orthotic inside. Follow us @theshoehive for updates on the Instagram live and the event. You won’t want to miss out. And of course, everything from the line is 20 percent off during the event.

Pre-shop our look book below. The event starts Thursday, October 1, and lasts through Sunday, October 4. Of course, you can shop online as well. We have styles in-store to shop and also try for fit for special order. I promise you will be hooked. I have been known to buy the same Marion Parke shoe in multiple colors because they are the only shoes I can stand in all day.

  • 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.
