From new store arrivals to charitable causes, take a look back at a few of our favorite events from the past year.

Veronica Swanson Beard and Veronica Meile Beard brought in Lone Star State staples, margaritas and tacos, to celebrate the grand opening of their first store outside of New York on October 11, 2017. As mothers, designers and entrepreneurs, The Veronicas unveiled an edgy boutique that reflects their love for all things multi-dimensional and versatile. Since the brand’s debut in 2010, The Veronica’s collection of multi-faceted pieces, including the beloved Dickey Jacket, newly launched jean line, shoes, and other tailored essentials, continues to evolve and flourish.
