For those of you eager to get your hands on the sophisticated contemporary pieces Alice + Olivia is known for, the wait is over. We reported this spring that the brand was opening its 16th national brick-and-mortar boutique in Washington, and now we can confirm Saturday, November 8, is the official opening date of the 2,400-square-foot space. To celebrate, the store is hosting a party on November 15 from 1 to 3 PM with music spun by local DJ Cassidy and spot-drawings by local illustrator Elizabeth Graeber, inspired by the brand, throughout the dressing rooms. The event is open to the public.
Alice + Olivia is the third women’s boutique to announce residency on M Street in Georgetown in recent months. Kate Spade Saturday opened two weeks ago, and Rent the Runway’s store is slated to open in mid-November. In terms of building a bit of a fashion retail arsenal, Washington is coming into its own.
Alice + Olivia. 3303 M St., NW. Open Monday through Wednesday 11 to 7, Thursday through Saturday 11 to 8, and Sunday noon to 7.
