Staff Summer Sale Picks

The summer sale continues at The Shoe Hive and The Hive. Many folks have been asking how long it will last, so I figure I might answer that question: until it is all gone! Even though some styles have a limited selection, we still have plenty of great items, and at prices you will love.

I think sale time is a great time to pick up a new bag or some great earrings; things you might not be able to bring yourself to purchase when they are full price, but when marked down become justifiable on a price-per-wear basis.

It is also true that even the folks who spend their days working at the stores (me included) have merchandise that once we mark down we feel compelled to finally snatch up. I think the thought of it ending up in someone else’s closet and not my own can send me into a panic!

I asked some folks at both stores to pick the items left on our shelves that they love and have us all scratching our head as to why they remain.


  • 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.
