I'm playing Pokemon alpha sapphire and I want Espeon which I'm having trouble getting so I thought I might be able to use a sun shard or something but I'm not sure where to get one.

"Sun shard"? What? Such an item doesn't exist. Are you trying to say sun stone? If so, that's not even how you evolve Eevee into Espeon.
Sun shard is how Eevee evolves in XD or Mystery Dungeon or something, but it doesn't exist in ORAS.

In the game you are playing, there is no such thing as a ‘sun shard’. You cannot use an item to evolve Eevee into Espeon in Alpha Sapphire.

Eevee evolves into Espeon primarily through a hidden mechanic referred to as both ‘happiness’ and ‘friendship’. It is a number assigned to each of your Pokémon ranging from 0 to 255, and is a means of evolution for many Pokémon, including Eevee.

Eevee will evolve into Espeon if you play during the day, and if you level it up while its happiness is above the number 220. A list of ways you can increase Eevee’s happiness can be accessed on Serebii here. For general play, it would be easiest to equip it with a Soothe Bell and level it up a lot.

If you’re curious how close you are, travel to Verdanturf Town and talk to the girl pictured here. You can roughly tell what number your Pokémon is up to based on what she tells you; a guide is featured here under ‘Happiness Checker’.

You can use an item to evolve it. It's called a kelpsy berry.
@sumwun sorry for flagging I know you’e sarcastic but this guy is clearly new and he might actually think you’re being serious
But kelpsy berries do evolve Eevee into Espeon.
um.. no they don't..
Yes they do. Kelpsy Berries increase friendship.
Cleared flags, I think it’s pretty obvious what’s happening now.
