Spring into the Holidays with 529 and the Mints

If you know me and my sister-in-law, Katie, you know there isn’t a holiday we don’t love to celebrate! Easter and Passover are no exception! These spring holidays get us so excited for vibrant colors and flirty silhouettes. When prepping for any holiday, the kids are obviously our first priority; we may or may not spoil them just a bit. But we also make sure to choose the right look for ourselves to be camera-ready for all of the photos that we will take. So, ladies – we have you covered this spring! You will win the hearts of your kiddos with the best Easter baskets ever… and you will feel fabulous and Instagram ready, whether you are dyeing eggs or dipping them!

For the baskets, 529 Kids Consign, as always, has the most unique and fun gifts for Easter! For the creative kiddos, we love the egg-coloring kits and Dino egg crayons from eco-kids.

(Available at 529 Kids Consign, coloring kit $11.99 and dinos $15.99)


Lilies and Roses is the absolute best source for bunny clips and bangles… because every little girl needs a bunny bangle!

Make bath time fun with bunny bath bombs from Oily Blends!

To top it all off… grab a rattan pom pom purse from Bow Arts!

Now onto the mommas! Katie and I love our newest delivery from Joy Joy. It’s fun, flirty, and affordable. We have spring looks that will take you from the egg hunt to the Easter dinner and Passover seder. The floral spaghetti strap dress is very flattering and easy breezy.

The short sleeve tiered print dress is a best-selling silhouette and looks great with sneakers or a fun wedge (Mint Condition has you covered… wink wink).

For a more casual look, the mauve eyelet top and smocked waist tan skort are the perfect pieces – both will take you far this spring and straight into summertime.

Whatever your plans are this spring – come see us! Katie and I will help you find the perfect look, and The Easter Bunny will thank you!

Next Year in Jerusalem!


  • The latest from Megan
Megan’s career in retail/merchandising began in the mid nineties standing in front of a woodsy smelling Abercrombie and Fitch. Sporting an oversized plaid flannel and bootcut jeans she said hello to every customer that eagerly walked in to the popular retailer. Little did Megan know that, while creating a perfect “denim wall”and dressing in all of the latest fashion that the lifestyle brand offered she was building the foundation for her fun and exciting career! After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, Megan managed multiple A&F stores before she moved on to an assistant buyer position in contemporary dresses at the local Arlington based retailer Hecht’s (now Macy’s). She gained an immeasurable amount of knowledge before moving onto a different facet of the business at Calvin Klein Jeans. Megan worked her way from retail coordinator to East-Coast regional manager helping to create the Calvin Klein aesthetic in department stores from Boston to Miami. After her first son Ethan was born, her position at CKJ was eliminated, due to the harsh economic conditions at the time. This is how 529 was born! Megan quickly began to see how fast Ethan was growing out of his clothing. She knew other moms had the same amount of adorable “gently-worn” clothing piling up. Combining her love of retail and her obsession with dressing Ethan gave her the idea to try and sell this clothing. 529 became a popular “pop-up” shop in the Alexandria area and once the following was big enough, a brick and mortar store in historic Old Town. 529 Kids Consign exemplifies who Megan is and what she has learned throughout her career. It’s a warm, well-organized, well- edited boutique that attracts moms from all over the DC metro area. On any given visit to the store you may be greeted by three boys dressed to the nines..they too have the passion.

We are an upscale children's and maternity consignment boutique specializing in the latest trends. Quality is important to us, which is why we are particular about our brands. Offering not only consignment items but also the freshest and most trendy must haves for hip moms and cool kids makes us the place to shop!
