8th Annual Alexandria Sidewalk Sale

If you’ve traveled to any suburb lately, you know that the ‘Town Center’ is the retail rage. They’re in Reston, Dulles, Bowie, Mosaic, and National Harbor, not to mention on the outskirts of every growing city in the nation. Developers lay out shopping centers that mimic a street grid, with sidewalks and maybe a central […]

Tax Free Weekend

The bulk of my summers as a child were spent in Ohio at the neighborhood pool. I was a competitive swimmer, so after championships at the end of July I would head to my grandmother’s farm in Kentucky. We weren’t really beach people. Sure we went to the ocean some, but not religiously, like I […]

Courtyard Clearance: $25 & $50 T-shirts, Tanks, & Sundry

T-shirts are staples in all our wardrobes; we wear them no matter what season it is. In summer, they are our go-to, and in the winter we layer them under everything. I have stacks of t-shirts ordered by color in my closet. So do I really need any more t-shirts? Probably not, but if they […]

New Arrivals: Isabel Marant Etoile & Ulla Johnson

It was a happy day when we received our first shipment of Isabel Marant Etoile, just days after receiving a new shipment of Ulla Johnson–both pre-fall deliveries. The two brands are markedly different in style; Isabel Marant Etoile is the epitome of “cool” while Ulla provides its wearers with a little more of a bohemian […]
