Everyone Wins: Men’s Night & Wish Lists

Six years ago we decided to try something crazy — kick all our female customers out of The Shoe Hive and invite men to come instead. It was the first annual Men’s Night and this year’s version is coming up from 6-9pm on December 13th, just in time for the holidays. It’s the night when everyone wins: you and the man in your life. Men get to have a cold, craft beer or single batch bourbon, eat a hot, grilled bratwurst, and, oh yes, shop for gifts for all the women in their lives.

We will have the fire pit going and tents up in the courtyard if it is raining, so don’t let the weather scare him away. There will be more than a few cigars smoked and some men will hang out even after the shopping is done.

If you have someone in mind you would like to join us, email their contact information to us at info@theshoehive.com and we will send them an invitation. Better yet, make sure you come in and fill out a wish list before the event so we know what to wrap up!

We decided to fill out our own wish lists just in case anyone needed to do some holiday shopping for any of The Shoe Hive team, or if anyone needed some inspiration. We have great new jewelry from Lizzie Fortunato and we are still unpacking bags this week from Jerome Dreyfus, Clare V, and Parker Thatch (more to come on that soon).


  • 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.
