Opening Doors for Women’s Self-Expression in the Workplace

Finally there is a much-needed breath of fresh air in the design of womans scrubs and lab coats. Realizing that the style of this important and standard uniform has gone virtually unchanged for over 40 years, Physician Assistant Lara Manchik was inspired by the extraordinary women working in healthcare to fill this great need that has long been overlooked. Manchik along with former Vera Wang designer Adrienne Catrina are bringing a new look and utility updates that are helping women find a balance between looking fashionable and presenting the professional look that is necessary for the industry. The  line of Medelita clinician scrubs and lab coats are incorporating femininity and style in attractively tailored clinician wear that women will be excited to wear to work.

The challenge set out before Manchik and Catrina was to help women find a sense of self-expression and femininity in the scrubs and lab coats that are so much a part of their everyday lives. Yet allow them to fit in with the standards of a male dominated industry. Many of the new Medelita designs include first-time innovations for nursing scrubs and lab coats that not only bring some stylish twists to the classic design but will also make the lives of these medical professionals much easier.

The look is stylish yet professional. The design improvements made to the scrub tops include darting at the bust, tailored sleeves, and tapered waist and hips that give women modern lines and an attractive fit while keeping comfort in mind. The clinician pants feature a contoured rise and a subtle bootleg that gives them a slimming look. The attractive details and feminine colors, combine both fashion and utility while meeting the industry requirements. Medelita’s groundbreaking use of comfortable and technologically advanced fabrics resist spills and stains, and help women present a fresh and clean appearance.

These exciting new design improvements are going to change the way women look medical scrubs and lab coats, as women working in healthcare have been redefining their identity and femininity in the work place. This fresh take on a familiar style is going to give women the professional look tailored to the female figure that they have been craving. With Lara Manchik’s years of experience working in the ER, she knows women have been waiting for the practical innovations, modern style and flattering fit that will make life on the job easier and more comfortable.

About Medelita
Medelita is dedicated to the innovation of medical apparel and are changing the way healthcare professionals dress. They are the first makers of clinician scrubs and lab coatsto use the revolutionary moisture-transferring Dri-release® and bacteriostat FreshGuard® microblend technologies by Optimer. These help keep women feeling fresh and the fabric feeling clean with the demands of long hours and grueling shifts. Made from 100% brushed cotton, hand-sewn in the U.S.A., the ultra-soft Medelita lab coats use the Advanced Dual Action Teflon® fabric protector developed by DuPont®. It resists wrinkling, repels liquid spills, and their use of High IQ® Easycare Plus by Huntsman keeps your professional wear looking new and freshly pressed longer.

Dog Pedometer – a gadget that aims to ensure dogs get enough exercise in order to fight the growing rates of diabetes in pets

Lloydspharmacy has introduced a new range of products, including the Dog Pedometer, in time for Christmas. Lloydspharmacy has released a new range of pet products with particular focus on the Dog Pedometer – a gadget that aims to ensure dogs get enough exercise in order to fight the growing rates of diabetes in pets. With the RSPCA estimating that as many as half of UK dogs are now overweight* and experts agreeing that one in 500 dogs will suffer from diabetes**, an obesity related illness, dog owners are being urged to consider their pet’s health this Christmas.

Healthcare specialists Lloydspharmacy have launched a new range of Christmas gifts for pets so that owners can give their favourite ‘family member’ something fun, stylish and good for them.

With recent research showing that 30% of dogs in the UK are overweight*** there is a very real chance that many pets could be in serious need of some more exercise. Furthermore, it is estimated that one in 500 dogs will develop diabetes during their lifetime – a serious medical condition affecting blood sugar levels, which are best controlled in animals by exercise along with diet and blood glucose monitoring.

All the evidence points to the fact that dogs need the right amount of exercise to stay healthy, yet many owners are blissfully unaware of how much exercise their pooches are actually getting – so they have no way of knowing if they are getting enough.

For this Christmas, Lloydspharmacy has launched a new Dog Pedometer, so that dog owners can give their beloved pet a gift that will benefit them well beyond the usual festive treats and bones, and give them the healthiest and happiest start to the New Year. With the capacity to count up to 99,999 steps and offering two different modes to fit smaller and larger animals, the Dog Pedometer will help keep track of a pet’s exercising so that owners can plan and monitor its improvement over time.

A lightweight and compact device, the electronic Dog Pedometer is designed in white and black in the shape of a canine’s face, so it will look charming on every four-legged friend. Sliding comfortably onto a collar, its one touch digital display provides instant feedback on the dog’s activity.

Other gifts in the Lloydspharmacy Christmas pet gift range include a black dog collar with silver paw motifs, which is available in two sizes and made from 100% polyurethane, and a cat collar, that comes in gold and silver, with diamante studs and a bell.

Diabetes is a serious condition, which led Lloydspharmacy to introduce free diabetes tests through their pharmacies.

About Lloydspharmacy:
Lloydspharmacy is the trading name of Lloyds Pharmacy Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Celesion AG based in Stuttgart. Lloydspharmacy has more than 1700 pharmacies across the UK and employs more than 16,000 members of staff. Lloydspharmacy offers free type 2 diabetes screening tests and free blood pressure tests.

*According to information provided on the RSPCA website.
**S.J. Ettinger, E.C. Feldman: Textbook of Veterinary Internal Medicine, 5th Edition, Vol. 2, 2000 pg. 1438 
***Results are based on over 9,000 dogs given PDSA pet health checks between March and October 2006 and March and October 2007. Figures are extrapolated.

Boots Has Introduced Five New Brands To Its Online Beauty Shop – Boots Beauty Boutique

Boots.com is thrilled to announce the launch of five new brands to its Beauty Boutique, which only opened its ‘virtual doors’ in Autumn 2007, increasing its already attractive offering of niche and coveted brands.

Boots Beauty Boutique is the beautifully ‘boudoiresque’ website for all those ‘beauty addicts’ out there, giving access to an array of the most sought after, exclusive skin, body and hair care brands from all over the world that are not readily available on the high street.

Thousands of customers have already treated themselves to renowned brands such asBliss, This Works, MOP and Dr. Nick Lowe since the launch of the site in September 2007. But if that wasn’t enough, now there is even more to find in the virtual boutique, from all the far-flung corners of the world.

ZPM is to wash bags what Mulberry is to handbags. Named after the founder Zoe Phayre-Mudge, ZPM combines bright colours and fabulous fabrics to create beauty and toiletry bags that are stylish as well as practical, so owners will leave them lying around for all and sundry to see.

Other brands introduced into the range focus on the more natural side of beauty. They include well-established, famous natural brands such as Swiss brand Weleda alongside newer names in the beauty world. One of the relative newcomers in natural beauty is the Greek skin and haircare brand Korres, whose roots are firmly planted in homeopathy. As a naturals brand Korres gleans most of its ingredients from four sources – Greek flora, foodstuffs such as honey, medicinal herbs and efficacious natural ingredients such as Hibiscus and Wild Mango.

Jo Woods is famed for being a model as well as a rock star’s wife. However, a lesser known fact is that Jo has been a committed pioneer to the organic lifestyle for the past eighteen years and has now created Jo Woods Organics. It comprises two ranges of totally organic bath and body products – Jo Woods Organics Everyday Range plus a more decadent gift range.

The fifth new brand is the paraben-free toiletries range Yes to Carrots, a hair, skin and bodycare range that harnesses beta-carotene, well known for its anti-ageing and anti-oxidant properties. This is combined with minerals from Dead Sea Mud to cleanse and detoxify skin.

Celeste Sinclair, Beauty Buyer for boots.com said: “Beauty Boutique has been very successful in its first year, with many of our customers discovering smaller niche brands that previously they may not have come across. We know many of our loyal customers want to see and experiment with brands that they might not have had access to before, so we are delighted to be able to introduce these five additional brands, and can’t wait to hear what they think.”

As well as these five exciting new brands, many of the existing brands will be extending their offering on Boots Beauty Boutique, including sets of gorgeous Christmas beauty products. Bliss, Burts Bees, Caudelie, Triology and Balance Me will all be introducing innovative new products for people to check out and enjoy. So overall there will be much more for customers to get their mitts on.

Boots Has Introduced A New Range Of Clocks And Lamps To Help Combat Seasonal Affective Disorder As The Clocks Go Back

According to statistics taken from NHS Direct, 1 in 8 people in the UK suffer from a mild form of ‘winter blues’ and 1 in 50 people are diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

In recognition of this Boots has introduced a range of clocks and lamps which specifically look to help alleviate the symptoms of SAD, from the most mild of cases through to the more chronically affected.

SAD lamps work on the principle that SAD is directly correlated to the amount of exposure to sunlight that individuals experience, which is reduced in the winter months. One theory is that light stimulates hormone levels in the specific part of the brain that affects mood, appetite and sleep patterns. Therefore if those people who suffer from SAD can increase their exposure to light through light therapy, then their mood could be lifted to levels consistent with that of the spring and summer seasons. Lamps and lightboxes used in light therapy have a very intense light – for example, an ordinary light bulb gives out light measuring between 200 – 500 lux, whereas a light therapy lamp tends to have a minimum output of 2500 lux. It is thought that light therapy helps symptoms of SAD in up to 67% of sufferers.

There are eleven clocks and lamps in the range, ten of which come from the renowned brand Lumie, a specialist in light therapy. The range spans body clocks to help the body combat the darker mornings through to fully medically certified products that can help alleviate the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder.

The clocks work on the principle of using gradually increasing simulated natural sunlight, therefore aligning your internal bodyclock and increasing the hormones that produce energy, leaving your body more refreshed and alert. The SAD lamps and lightboxes can be used to help the more chronic symptoms of SAD by creating a brighter light for use at any time of day; the theory is that being in close proximity to this light can increase the levels of melatonin and cortisol, to help induce a positive mood and stimulate energy levels.

David Hurst, Healthcare Buyer for boots.com said: “We recognise that the often mixed weather Britain experiences can leave many people with either unspecified feelings of ‘winter blues’ or in more severe cases the diagnosis of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Research shows that using a special bright light can improve symptoms of SAD and as we believe that the turning back of the clocks in October can signal the start of winter for many, we feel this is the perfect time to introduce this range of SAD lamps and clocks that could help lift people’s spirits.”

Boots Has Created Two Fragrances As Part Of Its Support Of This Years BBC Children In Need Campaign

Boots has created two fragrances to generate funds for BBC Children in Need 2008, the fifth year the company has lent its support to the charity.

The ‘his’ and ‘hers’ fragrances from Boots are called Hug for Her and Hug for Him*. The bottles, coloured gold for Hug for Her and silver for Hug for Him, come complete with a Pudsey-inspired phone charm. The fragrances themselves have been specially created to conjure up memories of a happy childhood.

Hug for Her is all about the familiar smell of bath time; the smell of warm towels with a hint of baby powder, whereas Hug For Him has the scent of wood shavings overlaid with the sweet scent of cola, to represent a school pencil case that contains everything from pens and pencils, through to sticky sweets.

Colette Phillips, Charity Marketing Manager for Boots, said: “We absolutely tried to recreate comforting scents that are defining memories from childhood. Our customers who buy a Hug fragrance to support Children In Need will relive happy memories of their childhood, whilst the donation they have made will help BBC Children in Need create brighter futures for some of today’s generation of children.”

Boots has supported BBC Children in Need for the past four years and helped raise a record total of £1.2 million pounds for the children’s charity during last year’s fundraising.

Colette continued: “This year BBC Children in Need is all about doing something different, so we thought we should follow that ethos here at Boots. Traditionally, all our Children in Need Pudsey products, which are sold to raise funds for the charity have been focused on children, but this year we thought we should do something different and create products that adults can also enjoy.”

The fragrances are just two of ten Pudsey products available from Boots. Other products include a mug, badges, a Pudsey bear and a bag, and the obligatory Pudsey ears.

In addition, Boots store teams around the country and teams at the Boots Support Offices will be joining in the fun with some innovative fund-raising ideas.

* Hug for Her and Hug for Him each cost £10, with £3.50 from each product sold being donated to BBC Children in Need.

About Children in Need:
The BBC Children in Need Appeal is in its 28th year and over that time has raised more than £470m to help disadvantaged children and young people in the UK. The statistics show just how necessary the charity’s work is; in the UK it’s estimated that 2.8 million children live in poverty, one hundred thousand children run away from home each year, one child in twenty is classified as disabled and there are 175,000 young carers in Great Britain. More information on the BBC Children in Need Charity (registered charity no. 802052) is available at www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey

Displaysense Reports The High Street Is Struggling As Increased Demand By Stores For 90 Per Cent Off Sales Banners Leads To Stocks Running Out In Late October

As the recession strikes and tightens its grips on British high streets, Displaysense report a worrying time ahead for retailers, with shops going to extreme lengths to encourage customers to part with their cash. The result of some stores taking up to 90% off of their prices has lead to stocks of certain sales banners running out.

The move towards massive sales which reveals the desperation of some high street stores, comes at a time when spending is usually on the increase as a result of consumers flocking to the streets for Christmas related gift ideas. Displaysense, a supplier of sale banners and display stands, is one such company that has been overwhelmed with orders for their sale product range, highlighting that the panic surrounding this Christmas sales period is leading retailers into unchartered territory.

Displaysense has been selling sale related banners and signs as well as other retail supportive products such as display cabinets for some years now, but has suddenly noticed a sharp increase in the demand for their 70%, 80% and 90% off sale banners, so much so that they sold out in October. Good news for Displaysense that they are meeting their audiences needs for products but worrying for the wider economy.

The retail display company is attempting to restock the items as soon as possible but feel that the demand for these sale banners will continue into the New Year alongside the overwhelming amount of orders received for their new range of sale related products.

Steve Whittle the marketing manager of Displaysense commented on this startling high street move by saying, “It’s a worrying trend for the economy in this run up to Christmas and the high street stores are really taking a big gamble”. He continued,”Normally this is the time of year for stores to hold their nerve on their pricing but it looks as if some have shown their cards early and we’ve noticed a great deal of shops with literature holders displaying major discounts”.

Not only are some of the stores taking up to 90% off their prices to encourage Christmas sales, but some are already beginning to revamp their look for 2009 as Displaysense highlight an increase in sales of their shop fittings such as their range of display cases. With the economy not set to recover for some time, a store with a unique look just might have what it takes to prosper in the forthcoming year.

With a tough 2009 predicted, Displaysense is preparing for the tough times ahead for retailers and has already tripled the stock of their ‘buy one get one free’ sale signs but hope they don’t sell any ‘closing down’ signs .

About Displaysense:
Displaysense was established in September of 1978 as a manufacturer of quality point of sale displays. They have a wealth of experience in design and manufacturing and have been able to develop their ever growing standard range of over 1500 displays.

Littlewoods Direct Make Christmas Buying Easier For Parents With Their List Of This Year’s Top Gifts

Christmas is always a difficult time for parents who want to buy the latest and hottest toys for their children. Every year there are new ‘must have’ toys and games, and knowing what the current ones to buy is a headache for many families. This year Littlewoods Direct has sought to make things a bit easier for parents by providing a What’s hot for Christmas section to their site to provide some much needed inspiration.

The Littlewoods Direct What’s hot for Christmas section provides several top ten toys lists split into gifts for boys, gifts for girls, as well as providing ideas for what to get mums and dads. Gift ideas can also be filtered by price or TV show.

Toys and games always come out top as presents for kids or all ages at Christmas, and this year the number one kids’ toy is the High School Musical plug and play karaoke which allows children to simply plug the microphone into the TV and then Sing-along with 10 High School Musical songs.

For girls the X Factor board game, which takes players through the journey of an X Factor contestant, passing through Auditions, Boot Camp, the Judges Houses and all the way to the Final, is one of the most wanted gifts this year.

For boys the 49-piece JCB Durable Workbench is one of the most fun and engaging toys for Christmas, while the feature packed Star Wars Millennium Falcon is sure to be one of the most sought after gifts for older boys, although dads may have to stop playing with it first.

For younger children the Sesame Street Elmo Live is the one of the most talked about soft toys this year. For the first time ever, Elmo seems to actually be speaking as his mouth opens and closes just like the real muppet, Elmo from Sesame Street. He waves his arms, sits and stands, even crosses his legs all the while telling stories and jokes, singing songs and playing games.

For slightly older kids, the Nintendo DS Lite is again for the third year, the number one ‘must have’ console for both boys and girls.

With so many ‘must have’ Christmas gift ideas, Littlewoods Direct want to ensure that everyone gets what they really want this year.

Displaysense Has Reported That A Drunken Reveller At A Corporate Farewell Party In Dorset Sparked Panic After Getting Stuck In A Cabinet And Falling Asleep For Three Hours

Displaysense, the UK’s leading supplier of display equipment, including leaflet dispensers and business card holders, has reported that the drunken antics of an employee working for a company in Dorset resulted in an unusual rescue missions by fellow employees.

Two weeks before the incident, a display cabinet was purchased from Displaysense by the company in Dorset as a method of displaying a number of awards and accolades that the company had recently received. The cabinet, one of many display cases owned by the company, was placed in the cafeteria where members of staff could freely access the awards that were put on display.

During a phone call to Displaysense two weeks later, it was discovered that an unusual incident had occurred at a staff farewell party, resulting in the cabinet being damaged beyond repair and the company left looking for a replacement.

In an effort to startle and surprise the guests of honour at the party, an overly drunk member of staff emptied out the contents of the display cabinet and squeezed himself inside without first considering the internal dimensions of the cabinet. With his coat covering his body, the employee, who was said to be “on the large side”, had planned to jump out after ten minutes. However, this humorous event never materialised.

Three hours passed and the drunken employee, still covered by his coat, awoke to find the bright lights and background music had turned to darkness and silence and that he was now all alone. After entering the cabinet in an awkward manner, he soon realised that he could not actually get out. He managed to reach into his back pocket however, and retrieve his mobile. He rang one of his work colleagues, who was continuing the party festivities in a nearby pub, and pleaded with him for assistance.

Steve Whittle, marketing manager at Displaysense commented: “The gentleman who rang us to order a replacement cabinet told us that they had to go back to the closed office and break apart the cabinet in order to free the employee. We’ve had customers use our products in some unique ways before, but I can’t recall when they’ve been used as a hiding place.”

After the company had finished the order, the sales team at Displaysense were left to question if they should ask their shop display manufacturer whether they should consider changing their design to include easy release mechanisms for the inside of their display cabinets.

Displaysense was established in September of 1978 as a manufacturer of quality point of sale displays.

Hollywood Stars Have Been Found Sporting Rolex Watches, Is This A Phenomenon Or Could The Economy Be Spawning A Return To A New Style Of Conservatism?

Rolex: Roger Federer, a world-famous tennis-star, is obsessed with his Rolex Day Date President at a time where young Hollywood stars have been found sporting newer styles by Cartier, Gucci, and Chanel. Rolex is a much more conservative brand and the Rolex Day Date President which Federer sports is a watch that has primarily worn by America’s CEO’S and presidents, including Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Ford, and, now, even Barack Obama and John McCain. What about this watch’s history is causing so much renewed interest among today’s Hollywood elite?

The Rolex Day Date is also known as the ‘President’ for a very unique reason. The chairman of Rolex presented President Eisenhower with the Rolex Day Date in 1948 to celebrate the victory over the Nazis in World War II. In 1956 Eisenhower’s watch needed a new solid gold bracelet and Rolex delivered to President Eisenhower a new bracelet with a concealed clasp. Soon after, this bracelet became known as the “President” bracelet and the Day Date watch was also nicknamed the “President” watch. Given President Eisenhower’s public love for the watch Rolex officially launched the wristwatch for public sale that year, in 1956 and it became a huge hit.

Rolex introduced a new version of the Day-Date this year, 2008. The new Day-Date watch, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date II, has a new 41 cm case, larger than the old 36 cm case. It also features a Parachrom-blu hair-spring and Paraflex shock-absorber which makes it more resistant to shock and magnetism. Prestigious and classy, the Rolex Day-Date is available in white-gold, yellow-gold, rose-gold and platinum and are priced at around $20,000.00 retail or around $8000 from Preowned Rolex watch retailers such as Melrose Jewelers, http://www.melrosejewelers.co.uk

Given Rolex’s recent boost in popularity it seems that, once again, America has fallen in love with all items affiliated with the Presidency. Both Barack Obama and John McCain have been seen sporting Rolex watches and as we enter an election period, the Rolex Day Date President may become more popular than ever.
