Save the Date! It’s the 15th Annual Alexandria Boutique Warehouse Sale

It is hard to believe it’s already that time of year, but it is once again the season of the annual Alexandria Boutique Warehouse Sale.

It seems that once the holidays are over, folks begin asking at the store about this one-day event that has become an must-attend occasion for Alexandria shoppers. The discounts are as deep as 80 percent off and you’ll find everything from clothing and accessories to home goods, running shoes to children’s items.

In keeping with tradition, we are holding the 15th annual Alexandria Boutique Warehouse Sale the first weekend in February. On Saturday, February 2, more than 25 stores will pack up their merchandise and move it to one common location for a one-day sale like no other. Held at The Westin in Alexandria, there are plenty of places to park in the Carlyle area, along with plenty of places to eat before or after you shop. I always encourage folks to make a day of it and head a few blocks down to Old Town after perusing the sale to explore all the great stores in Alexandria. Any store you like at the Warehouse Sale, you’ll love in their physical location.

The doors open at 9am but folks start lining up early. There is no fee to attend and it is first come, first in for shoppers. In the early hours of the sale, you will find a line for a bit but we have pop-up classes from Mind the Mat, a braid bar from Salon DeZen, and other fun activities and giveaways to help pass the time. If you come later in the day, you likely won’t find a line. In years past people have been able to walk right in beginning around 11am and still find plenty of great deals.

Mark your calendar, call your friends, and spend a Saturday in Old Town shopping the best deals of the year. And if you want a chance to win early entry, click below and follow the sale on Instagram at @alxwarehousesale.


  • 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.
