It’s That Time of Year Again: It’s the Veronica Beard Trunk Show at The Hive!

The first weekend of March has become one of the biggest times of the year for The Hive. It is kind of our Super Bowl, or maybe our Kentucky Derby since it is as much of a fashion event as a sporting event. This will be the fourth year in a row we will be holding our annual Veronica Beard Trunk Show and it is going to be even bigger than in years past. They are sending more merchandise than they ever have before!

There are beautiful pink florals, perfect spring plaids, Bermuda shorts (my personal favorite), tons of dresses, and jackets, of course. They are only here through the weekend and then we have to pack it all up and send it back to New York. I think I forgot to mention the best part, all Veronica Beard is 20 percent off. That includes special orders!



It is a great time to try out the Scuba jacket or pant that you have been thinking about. We have carried these pants and blazers since the beginning, and they are still a customer favorite. Of all the many things in my closet, the scuba blazer (I have navy and black) is the item I wear the most. You can wear it 12 months out of the year, it doesn’t wrinkle so is perfect for travel and all you have to do is switch out the dickey to change the look. People won’t even know you are wearing the same blazer.

We will kick this trunk show off Thursday, March 5th when our new representative from VB, Michelle, will be in town. So, we will have a pro there to help with fit and function, so you can decide what will work best for you.

Stop in and see us – I will be there Thursday through Sunday and look forward to seeing you.



  • 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.
