Children’s Summer Shoe Collection By Start-rite

With summer on the way, children’s footwear company Start-rite have launched their latest collection of kids shoes. Designedwith both child and parent in mind, the collection features styles children will adore with the durability and quality parents look for.

Children’s Summer Shoe Collection

With three core themes incorporated into the collection, their new ‘Jamboree’, ‘Saharan Trail’ and ‘South Bank’ range to their children’s shoe collection are already proving popular. Start-rite have followed key trends for the season in this new range, such as camouflage an

d nautical inspired for the boys shoes, and boho and ethnic inspired designs for the girls shoes.

Their updated collection of canvas plimsoll styles combines practicality with fashion – the new boy’s design features a ‘space man’ theme, and the girl’s design features a ‘pop art’ theme.

Meanwhile, their sandal collection welcomes two new arrivals. ‘Pit Lane’ is a fun, navy sandal perfect for beach wear for boys, while ‘Saffron’ is a sorbet pink leather girls sandal with pretty flower features.

Start-rite have also included new light weight and robust children’s trainers in several colour schemes in the updated collection. New to the girls shoes range is the sporty ‘Go Girl!’ style with turquoise details, while the boys shoe range welcomes in Rubik’s cube inspired ‘Bounce’.

Their website is also a valuable resource for information about children’s foot care and features a downloadable foot measurement gauge to ensure customers order the correct fitting shoe for their child.

Displaysense Helps Retailers In Their Fight Against Swine Flu

Displaysense has announced that, with the number of swine flu cases continuing to rise across the UK, retailers and manufacturers are now going to extreme lengths to prevent the spread of the highly contagious illness throughout their customers and staff.


Demand for swine flu protection equipment has gone through the roof over the past few weeks, with Displaysense, a Hertfordshire based shop fittings provider, reporting that sales of their face masks and antibacterial hand wash have more than trebled and stock of the items is having to be ordered daily to keep up with demand. Not only has the retail display company seen a dramatic increase in sales of their face masks, but the range of searches on the company’s website for swine flu preventive products has gone up ten-fold, overtaking the more popular searches for products such as business card holders.

Steve Whittle, marketing manager at Displaysense, commented on the findings by saying, “We have had a big increase in demand for a lot of our products, from small clothing manufacturers purchasing a large quantity of masks to protect their work force, to retail stores purchasing antibacterial wipes and disinfectant hand gel to encourage customer and staff usage as well as keeping work surfaces sterile.”

Not only has the sale of face masks rocketed, but the sale of storage devices related to the virus has also been on the up, with products such as medical display cases and leaflet holders seeing an equally as large increase in sales.

“With the economy as it is, the fear of what swine flu can do to a struggling high street workforce and the potential reduction of footfalls of consumers, has many retailers reeling,” continued Steve Whittle. “We are just glad that we can supply such products to help these businesses combat this potential threat.”

The government are tackling the outbreak head on by distributing a leaflet to homes across the country this May, informing people of the symptoms and actions to take to prevent contracting and passing on the illness. Displaysense are also playing their part, by creating a dedicated page on their site that not only provides information on swine flu related products, but also provides links through to the government’s advice website and a health protection agency website.

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

Displaysense Has Joined The Many Number Of Companies That Are Having To Find Ways Of Being More Efficient And Save Money In The Current Economic Climate By Not Only Investing In A Waste Disposal System But Also Aiming To Make Money From Their Waste

Displaysense, the Hertfordshire-based retail company, has joined the many number of companies that are having to find ways of being more efficient and save money in the current economic climate by not only investing in a waste disposal system but also aiming to make money from their waste.

Displaysense, the UK’s leading supplier of display cabinets and other shop fittings, have recently invested in a new waste compactor and waste recycling service which not only reduces the amount of cardboard and plastics heading to landfill, but also helps reduce the number of trips regular waste disposal lorries have to make to the company’s warehouse.

The company, who originally used a 12cy skipping service, now uses its new compactor, reducing company costs by nearly 70% and saving hundreds of pounds. The compactor not only helps to cut down costs, but the amount of bulk waste has also been reduced down to two small pale loads of cardboard and plastic per week, which is a great help when disposing of some of the companies used mannequin boxes.

Not only is the company saving money but there are certain companies in the UK that buy compacted waste and Displaysense are now working with one such company.

Stuart Parnis, the warehouse manager at Displaysense commented on the success of the new compactor by saying, “We don’t make a lot from selling our waste but it helps to pay off the cost of the waste compactor. I feel a little like the Wombles, as we are making good use of what others regard as rubbish.”

Stuart added: “Since we introduced the new compactor in March, we have already noticed how efficient it is making certain processes within the warehouse, by reducing the time spent having to deal with collections.”

Displaysense, who now only require a small bin outside their warehouse doors for unrecyclable waste, are keen to see how many more savings they can make with further green technologies to help recycle some of their other items such as the plastics from returned clothes rails.

With a new website introduced in March of this year and 20,000 more products added to its range, it has already been a big year for change at Displaysense and it seems that there are even more ideas coming in the pipeline that won’t go to waste.

Elemis Has Announced Details Of Its New See The Difference Eye Duo Set, Featuring Products Designed To Prevent The Signs Of Stress, Tiredness And Ageing Around The Eye Area

The new limited edition eye care set from Elemis features an Absolute Eye Serum, containing absolutes of rosewood, osmanthus, lavender and chamomile which helps to decongest and reduce dark circles and puffiness around the eye area whilst gently preserving, lifting and refining the eye tissue.

Also contained within the set f r o m Elemis is Pro Collagen Eye Renewal, a lightweight cream-gel that’s clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area by up to 60% in just 28 days*.

Barbara Hulanicki Collection At Topshop

Topshop is renowned for working with style heroes of the past, present and future, and this spring marks its coming together with Barbara Hulanicki. Continuing from where she left off in the 70s, Barbara Hulanicki rejoins the fashion world with a new series of clothes for Topshop.

Barbara Hulanicki

While rich with reminders of Biba in its heyday, the collection is a distinct move away from the pretty designs of the past. Clothes are brought up to date by modern prints and edgier shapes for a new generation of fans, making Hulanicki one of the most influential and inspirational style icons of the 20th century.

Having spent the last 15 years designing furniture and hotels worldwide, Hulanicki has reverted back to her first love of fashion illustration as the starting point for the collection. The enchanting ‘ladybug’ and ‘headscarf girl’ designs appear on delicate chiffons, the bold ‘enlarged animal print’ is splashed over silks and jerseys, and quirky large placement sketches of fashion girls stand out on T-shirts and accessories.

The Hulanicki collection takes on a split personality of Good Girl/Bad Girl dressing.

A playful, floaty silhouette in bright coral, pink and pale turquoise tones characterises the Good Girl. A flirty printed dress with Hulanicki’s trademark elegant puff shoulders is echoed by daringly short skater skirts, culottes and playsuits in chiffons and silks. Billowing smock blouses are grown up, while a bright pink ‘ladybug’ print cropped corset top and coral animal print body are aimed at the younger customer. The dramatic black maxi jumpsuit with tie shoulders is the stand out piece and most reminiscent of the collection’s 1970s origins.

A seductive off-the-shoulder body-con dress in lilac jersey with a teasing print on the bust appeals to the collection’s Bad Girl. Mini dresses are bandeau or halter neck in figure hugging jersey for a laid-back sexy look, and a cropped suede jacket with matching high-waist hot pants in khaki. The large prints used on these clothes are repeated on several simple jersey T-shirts for a more accessible and casual take on the look.

Beachwear finishes off the womens clothing collection with a ‘headscarf lady’ printed retro-shaped bikini set and oversized floppy sun hat in either bright or pale pink, and a large beach bag emblazoned with the ‘silhouette girl’.

On her collaboration with Topshop Barbara said: “Top Shop has always been the first shopping stop when I am in London. They work in the same fast thinking, ‘It won’t be there the next time so make a snap decision’ attitude that we developed in the 60s and 70s.”

Mary Homer, managing director of Topshop added: “It is an honour to be working with one of my own personal fashion heroes. Barbara’s approach to fashion is as bold and inspirational now as it was in the 70s. The team has loved working with her and I know our customers will love this collection”

The new Hulanicki collection will be on sale from the end of April.

About Topshop 
Topshop was established in 1964 and is part of Arcadia Group Ltd. Sir Philip Green became owner of Arcadia Group Ltd in 2002.

There were five retail awards in total, two of which went to GAME: High Street Retailer of the Year and Store Manager of the Year. The latter was jointly awarded to Mike Barnes and Pearl Robinson who captain the Oxford Street store.

Mike and Pearl were up against some fierce competition in the Store Manager of the Year category with Rupert Banning-Lover (HMV), Richard Pascoe (Chips), Martin Tuckwood (Asda) and Gary Noakes (Gameplayer) also vying for the top prize.

Mike who, along with co-manager Pearl, was struck speechless on the night when presented with the award said: “We were gobsmacked to have won. Being recognised by GAME is one thing, being recognised by an esteemed panel of industry experts is quite another. It was a very humbling experience.”

Gamestation also part of GAME Group plc, walked away with the coveted Star Store Award for their Birmingam’s New Street store which excels at offering a unique customer experience while cementing their reputation as a specialist retailer.

Terry Scicluna, Chief Operating Officer of GAME Group said: “I am delighted that all the hard work we have put in over the past few years has been recognised. This is particularly gratifying given the present economic downturn and the additional pressure this has inevitably placed on GAME Group as a whole. It’s a testament to the dedication and sheer hard work of everyone at GAME and Gamestation that we won three of a possible five MCV awards.”

Attended by around 600 of the industry’s most influential names, the MCV Awards represent the biggest night in the gaming industry’s calendar, acknowledging and celebrating the industry’s finest across the following four categories: Retail; PR and Marketing; People and Industry; and a Special Recognition Award.

Salon Offers Premium Quality Haircuts with Laughter and Fun – Founded by Comedian Jack Benny’s Granddaughter –

Cue the laughter and giggles. Snip-its (, the fastest growing franchise of children’s hair salons in the U.S, opened its first West Coast location in Palo Alto, California in April at Town & Country Village at 855 El Camino Real. Designed to ease the haircutting fears of children, Snip-its provides an entertaining and magical destination for premium children’s haircuts and spa services. The 1,700 sq. ft. salon offers a complete line of natural hair care products plus two children’s party rooms for memorable birthday parties.

“I’m thrilled to bring the high-quality Snip-its concept to California. Snip-its is a magical experience for children that turns an ordinary hair salon visit into an extraordinary adventure that ends with a smile,” said Snip-its Palo Alto owner Daniel Liberman. “Moms can feel good about visiting Snip-its. Not only do we have specially trained hair stylists, but children can look and feel their best with our many spa services and delightful birthday parties. I look forward to Snip-its becoming a part of the community.”

Snip-its’ no-tears haircut experience is weaved with vibrant colors and reminds many children of a Saturday morning cartoon. The salon interior features a cast of Snip-its own branded animated cartoon characters: Snips, Jean Luc le Spritz, Curly Comb, Flyer Joe Dryer, the Clip-ette Sisters, and Maranga Mirror plus animated videos, salon-tailored educational computer games and ‘cushy’ parents chairs so Moms can sit nearby. At the end of each visit, children receive a prize in exchange for a lock of hair from the ‘Magic Box.’

“Snip-its caters toward entrepreneur spirits and Daniel is a perfect example of an owner with the drive and determination to succeed,” said James George, the CEO of Snip-its. “We wish him much success.”

Snip-its, a growing kids franchise was founded in 1995 by California native, Joanna Meiseles, the daughter of Hollywood producer, Robert Blumofe credited with the movie, Yours, Mine and Ours and is the granddaughter of famed comedian Jack Benny. After a heartbreaking visit to an ‘adult’ salon with her then young son, the first-time entrepreneur established the entertainment-styled salon with the goal to make children’s hair care a positive fun-filled adventure for families. The Palo Alto location marks the 67th Snip-its location.

The Snip-its Corporation, based in Natick, Massachusetts is designed to untangle the hair care challenges of children and their parents. It provides the best customer service and a guaranteed great time for both kids and parents. The salon franchise has served more than one million children annually in 65 locations. In 2007, Snip-its was named the 30th fastest growing franchise in the U.S. by Franchise Times Magazine. For more information or kids franchise opportunities, visit or call 877-SNIP-ITS.
