New Year/ New You Event and Give Away

We all have things we want to work on; I mean aren’t we all a work in progress? Most of us can exercise more, eat better, and don’t even get me started with the cleaning out of the closets and cupboards. The new year, of course, is a time when we all start thinking about how we can improve in all these areas and many other.

Katie and Megan, the co-owners of Mint Condition, and I have been trying to think of something fun to do together (you guessed it: we terribly miss Katie and want an excuse to have her back at the store, even for a night). I think we found the perfect way and the New Year and New Decade seemed like the perfect time! And once we had this big idea, we couldn’t stop with just the two of us…we wanted to make it even bigger.

We came up with the New Year/New You Event and Give Away on Thursday, January 23, 6pm – 9pm at The Shoe Hive.

Katie and Megan will be on hand to collet 10 consignment items per customer and set-up accounts for new clients of Mint Condition. It’s just the kick-start you need to begin that closet clean out you have been talking about over the holiday break.

Mint Condition has partnered with Ali Helmuth of ALH style to do free pick-up and drop-off, so we thought, why not bring in a closet editing expert to help us get tips on how to best tackle your closet and start wearing what is in your wardrobe? Ali will be on hand for our event to give a talk from 7pm – 7:30pm on tips and tricks to make your closet work better for you!

Maybe you have been looking to update your makeup? We will have that too! Angela of Bellacara will be there to show you their latest clean make-line: Westman Atelier.

I haven’t even talked about the New Year/New You Give Away! We have almost $1000 in prizes to give to one lucky winner. All you have to do is stop in and register. I wish I could register for this one. Bring in a jewelry item for ALH Style to donate to an upcoming event at the Carpenter’s Shelter and we will enter you a second time.

  • 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.
