The Winter Sale at The Shoe Hive & The Hive

It is that time of the year again when we start marking down prices to make room for all the new spring arrivals. I always worry that I’m going to sound like a television used car salesman when I start “slashing prices” and saying things like “everything must go.” But literally, I’m telling you, everything must go. I’ve got resort wear coming off the UPS truck every day and, as much as I love them, I just don’t have shelf space for these great fall styles any longer.

So starting tomorrow, Friday, December 30th, we are marking all Fall and Winter down 40 percent at both The Shoe Hive and The Hive.

There’s also a dirty little secret about this particular sale — there is always a ton of great stuff left. We end up scratching our heads a little bit wondering why a few pieces are still on our shelves; some of them have become my winter staples already! (See below to see what I mean!)

So stop in soon for the best selection. If you are looking for something to do over the holiday weekend we will be open. We are open on New Year’s Eve from 9am to 4pm — closing just a bit early so we can get our own heels on — and we are open New Year’s Day our regular Sunday Hours of noon to 5pm. We hope to see you!

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.

    Oh, how I wish I could sort your inventory by size so I would not have to get my hopes dashed when that end of season bootie is only available in a 5.5….
