Our Biggest Event of the Year: The Veronica Beard Trunk Show

The Hive is ready to host our biggest event of the year: the Veronica Beard Trunk Show. We have been unpacking boxes upon boxes of merchandise but it will be here for one weekend only, starting tomorrow, Friday, March 8, and we are so excited to share it with you! And did we mention The Shoe Hive will have shoes from this amazing line in the store just for this trunk show event, as well?

Wait, we didn’t mention the best part…it is all 20 percent off and special orders are available. Wait, wait…we didn’t mention the second best part, our representative from New York, Liz, is coming down all day on Friday to help us out. She is the greatest and will help you decide what VB pieces you need to make it through spring! Don’t worry, if you can’t make it in on Friday, I will be there all day Saturday, and if you can’t make it in, call us and we will figure something out.

Since they are sending so many great pieces, we decided to break it down for you all by category below. Here it is, what you need for weekend wear, suiting, floral prints, spring’s must-have dresses and skirts, and, of course, the Veronica Beard Scuba collection.

We have to talk for a moment about the scuba pieces, especially the blazers. If you haven’t tried a blazer from them in the scuba material, you are missing out. It is the perfect weight fabric for all year, it won’t wrinkle when you travel, and they all have the inside zipper so you can put a dickey in to change the look. They are the most comfortable and versatile piece of clothing you could ever own. They also make great skirts, pants, and dresses out of the same awesome material.

I am telling you, these pieces are life changing. Okay, they are at least wardrobe changing. Come in to the trunk show and see for yourself!


  • 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.
