Blackwell Online Are Seeing Strong Sales Of Business Books, Despite The Current Business And Financial Downturn

Blackwell Online, the leading UK based book retailer, has seen strong sales of its business books, despite the credit crunch continuing to have a firm grip on most companies and businesses throughout the country.

As the UK enters into a period of increased business and financial instability, the question emerges of how well equipped today’s business leaders and employees are to manage their businesses during a recession, when the prevailing trend of the past years has been one of growth and stability.

Blackwell believes this explains why Blackwell Online has seen buoyant sales in the past six weeks – including the three top selling business books “Acquisitions Essentials”, “Ideas are Free” and “Future-Engage-Deliver”.

In fact Blackwell has a wide range of books addressing the theme of financial instability. A new book on Blackwell Online’s virtual bookshelves is “Panic”. This book looks at how people’s lives are ruled by the cycle of financial boom and bust. “Panic” is a collection of articles from contemporary commentators, giving a new insight into how markets operate and who really knows what they’re talking about.

To cater for the strong interest in business books and financial books which can offer advice on how to survive a recession, Blackwell Online has pulled together a unique collection which can be viewed online on the Blackwell business books page.

About Blackwell
Blackwell is the leading book seller of medical and education texts in the UK with over 60 outlets across England, Scotland and Wales. It has built an international reputation for bookselling excellence with links to academic institutions and libraries around the globe and has continued to expand its UK base on high streets and in university campuses up and down the country.

New Research From Displaysense Suggests That Using Certain Colours Could Boost Retail Store Performance And Increase Product Appeal This Christmas Period

Following research from the University of Rochester that indicated women wearing red are more appealing to men, further research undertaken by Displaysense suggests that stores can influence the shopping patterns of their customers simply by re-colouring their shop fittings.

A simple colour test undertaken by the retail display company indicated that just under 70% of the participants were more drawn to a particular colour across a vast range of everyday items.

Understanding consumer buying patterns is particularly important for businesses trying to boost sales this Christmas period as the looming recession and increasing unemployment has placed fear in the minds of the general consumer who are now looking to save rather than spend.

The research undertaken by Displaysense highlights some interesting consumer behaviour between certain colours and potential spending patterns. For example 20% of participants suggested that the use of brighter colours distracted their attention away from products in a shop display. In contrast, when red is used on shop displays and fittings, men are more drawn to the products.

This type of research is of great interest to retailers such as jewelers, who could increase the chances of attracting the attention of men who are shopping for Christmas presents for their wife, girlfriend or partner by using red appropriately in their stores, such as red counter top display cases or shelving.

Although the study of colours on the human psyche is not new, Displaysense are looking to capitalise on this research by sourcing a line of red products including mannequins anddisplay cabinets that would fit in well as we head towards the peak Christmas period.

Red, which is said to be the most emotionally intense of all the colours has been known to cause various changes within our bodies, including a faster heart beat, deeper breathing and a release of endorphins. Displaysense believe this physical reaction by men to red will lead to customers browsing for longer and spending more on products placed upon these vibrant shop fittings.

Displaysense hope that retailers will be seeing red for the right reasons this festive period, and, in terms of their bank balance, hope for a Black Christmas.

Displaysense research included the opinions of 500 customers at the start of September to the end of October 2008 asking a series of questions, which forms the source for the various facts included in this press release.

University of Rochester study – “Psychological Study Reveals That Red Enhances Men’s Attraction to Women” – 28/10/08

About Displaysense
Displaysense was established in September of 1978 as a manufacturer of quality point of sale displays. Displaysense has a wealth of experience in design and manufacturing and has been able to develop an ever growing standard range of over 1500 displays. The range is now hugely diverse including acrylic containers, display cabinets, mannequins, modular shelving units, exhibition displays and business card holders.

Majority Of Couples Cutting Back On Wedding Expenses Due To Economic Downturn

www.AmericanBridal.com, the Internet’s most expansive collection of unique and affordable wedding favors, today announced the results of its 2008 Wedding Planning Survey. The survey gathered information about wedding budgets, location, guest count, wedding party size, and how the economy is affecting wedding planning in general.

A majority of respondents (57%) are having their wedding within the next 2 months, andAmericanBridal.com wishes to thank our many customers who, amidst the frenzy of wedding planning, participated in this survey. Especially since most (90%) are doing the planning themselves, with help from family and friends, and not hiring a professional wedding planner.

Since budgets are a concern for many, It looks like there’s a major spread in wedding budgets. About 25% are planning a wedding on a budget of less than $10,000, while 25% have wedding budgets over $25,001. The remaining 50% are somewhere in between, with 38% reporting in the range of $10,001 to $20,000.

“Location, location, location” as the saying goes, and roughly a quarter (25%) are having the reception at a hotel, and 10% have opted to host their nuptials at a country club. About 6% of couples selected a destination wedding, while a majority (55%) reported they are finding another type of venue to rent for the event and reception.

Size matters for this year’s brides, and by that we mean the size of the wedding party. Most couples (48%) will have between 5 to 8 people, while 37% of respondents have 9 or more bridesmaids and attendants. The trend seems to lean toward larger, more inclusive wedding parties, which leads us to the number of invited guests. Nearly 40% report they will have a guest count of more than 200 and 14% say their total guest count is under 100. A good 34% are inviting 100 to 150 guests.

As for cutting costs and wedding budgets, 68% said they’ve lowered their budgets by $1,000 or less. However, the small cuts they are making may not have a big impact on the actual wedding. Items that brides generally won’t skimp on are wedding gowns, photography and wedding rings.

When asked more specifically about what they would and would not change, most are not significantly altering music, location, reception style, or dress. Instead, they are more likely to adjust the cost of invitations, wedding favors, bridal accessories and gifts for the bridal party (combined, 46% of respondents said they would make changes in these 3 areas).

“The uncertain economic climate doesn’t automatically mean couples must forgo special touches to commemorate the beginning of their life together,” says Shirley Tan, American Bridal founder“We are pleased to help the bride and groom stay within budget with affordable wedding favors, and bridal and wedding party gifts.”

Now that potential money-saving opportunities are identified, look for vendors that offer discount wedding favors whose products don’t look like cheap wedding favors. Economical, do-it-yourself favors add the elegance of custom favors without the price tag. Do-it-yourself favors are popular since they can be customized to suit a particular wedding theme. AmericanBridal.com features a wide selection of do-it-yourself favor supplies from which to choose. Add personalized ribbons to create one-of-a-kind favors that look as if not a penny was spared.

One thing is clear: everyone wants to have a memorable wedding, at a special location with beautiful photos and videos. Families and guests must have a great time with plenty of food, drinks, and even entertainment. After all, a wedding is a time of celebration and a party! Most advised planning early, so it is easier to plan ahead, save money, avoid stress and enjoy the anticipation of the special day. The extra time will help to ensure that no detail is overlooked, and that the couple can enjoy their day without reservation.

Leading Online Retailer Is Authorized To Sell Genuine COGE Designer Palladium Rings

Titanium-Jewelry.com, a leading online retailer of mens wedding rings, tungsten rings, titanium rings and unique contemporary jewelry designs for men and women, announced today that it is now carrying a selection of COGE designer palladium rings, wedding bands and partner bands.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer the finest COGE designer palladium rings and wedding bands to our customers,” said Ron Yates, founder, Titanium-Jewelry.com“In terms of luxury jewelry, COGE’s unique combination of precision German craftsmanship and innovative design is unrivaled. The addition of the COGE line complements our existing selection of high-end palladium, titanium and tungsten bands.”

COGE palladium rings utilize the most progressive fabrication techniques and feature avant-garde styling. Individually machine tooled and hand-crafted in Pforzheim, Germany, COGE’s artisan quality harkens back to a time before mass production, when each piece was handmade. A COGE wedding band bears the signature German precision and world-class quality control, because of the care each ring is guaranteed to meet the most exacting standards.

Most gold, platinum and palladium rings on the market today are cast, which will inherently lead to some metal porosity. While it might take a jewelers loupe to see, the porosity affects the shine and durability of the metal, and over time, small pinpoint holes will develop, causing the ring to wear down. COGE palladium rings resist this type of erosion because hey are individually machine tooled from a solid billet of metal.

The unique “lathing” process makes the COGE palladium ring harder and stronger, resisting everyday wear and tear more effectively than its cast counterparts. After a few months’ wear, most typical palladium rings will show scratches, however, the COGE grade of palladium is the highest quality and the hardest alloyed palladium in the world, as measured by the Vickers hardness scale or the Vickers Pyramid number (HV). COGEpalladium rings measure between 180 – 240, while typical palladium measures between 125 – 135.

In addition, the multiple step “lathing” process used to create COGE actually strengthens and hardens the material. As such, the COGE palladium ring is much denser and harder than a typical cast palladium ring. The heavier weight lends to a much more luxurious and rich feel that rests comfortably around the finger, without the extra weight of heavy metals.

An investment in a COGE palladium ring, as a superior alternative to a mass produced, lower quality cast ring, will ensure quality and value for many years to come. Wedding bands symbolize a lifetime of commitment and dedication, and deserve to bear the impeccable quality and beauty that are hallmarks of the COGE Design Group.

In addition to COGE palladium rings, Titaniun-Jewelry.com brings cutting edge designs to market offering affordability and stylish value to couples in search for unique rings and contemporary jewelry. Enticing grooms and couples worldwide, the online retailer provides a multitude of styles and metals representing the best selection of palladium rings, titanium rings, tungsten rings, and mens wedding rings for the up and coming male and female demographic.

The Body Shop Online Gift Finder Tool

The Body Shop, the global ethical cosmetics company, has created a new gift finder tool, helping those searching for ideas for Christmas gifts.

The new online gift finder on The Body Shop site, requires the user to answer three simple questions and then The Body Shop will suggest a selection of thoughtful gifts for whomever is being bought for.

Suitable Christmas gift solutions which customers can find with the new gift finder tool include favourites from The Body Shop such as fragrance gifts, cosmetic bags, bathtime treats, essential oils and skin care products, many of which include the benefits of natural ingredients. It seems that during the harsh economic climate, people are turning their homes into their own personal havens to retreat to, leading to an increase in sales of home spa products and indulgent treats to use in the comfort of their homes.

Notably, The Body Shop has seen a significant increase in sales of its home fragrances which have shot up by as much as 33% in recent months, suggesting that aromatic oils, burners and diffusers are the new pamper products of choice during the economic downturn.

According to The Body Shop“While people are cutting back on expensive evenings out, it seems a greater emphasis is being placed on enhancing the home environment, as seen by the growth in sales of our home fragrances. As the Christmas Holiday gift giving season approaches, we’re seeing that ethical gifts continue to drive our seasonal sales, as shoppers embrace smart eco-chic shopping as they turn to brands they trust. At The Body Shop, even our seasonal home fragrance oils include the benefits of our fair trade programme, Community Trade, which helps shoppers feel extra good about their purchase.”

Bath and body collections, fragrances and grooming products for men, are among the many gift ideas, which can be found with the new gift finder tool online.

About The Body Shop:
The Body Shop International plc is the original ethical cosmetics company, now operating across more than 2,500 stores in over 60 markets worldwide. The Body Shop has constantly sought out wonderful natural ingredients from all four corners of the globe to bring customers products bursting with effectiveness, to enhance their natural beauty. The Body Shop strives to use the planet’s resources wisely, searching for outstanding natural materials and ingredients from across the globe to include in their range of products. The Body Shop continues to lead the way, sourcing sustainable palm oil, introducing 100% recycled packaging, and raising funds and awareness to help prevent the spread of HIV/ AIDS, and continuing to support marginalized communities around the world through the Community Trade fair trade programme.

For over 30 years The Body Shop has believed that business has the power to make the right kind of difference to the world. The Body Shop philosophy continues to drive everything, allowing customers around the world to become ‘activists’, simply by choosing from The Body Shop range of products. As Dame Anita Roddick said: “Activism isn’t listed on The Body Shop labels as an ingredient, but it is there as surely as the bergamot and hemp oil.”

Pine Solutions Has Been Placed 86th In The Sunday Times Fast Track 100, Which Lists The Fastest Growing UK Businesses

Pine Solutions, the leading online furniture specialist, has been named the 86th fastest growing business in the UK by the Sunday Times in its Fast Track 100, a list of the most rapidly growing businesses in the UK.

Pine Solutions, which is based in Norwich, has seen a 350% growth in the business over the last three years, thanks to a sharp rise in the online purchasing of furniture. The company now handles over 2000 orders a month to homes across the UK.

“Three years a go we had six employees and a turnover of £1.8 million. Since then our sales have grown an average of 58% a year and our 2008 turnover reached £7.2 million,” said Kevin Johnson, Managing Director of Pine Solutions“The growth has been both challenging and very exciting, but we have successfully stayed ahead of our competitors by cornering a niche in the market.”

He continued; “A massive growth area for the business has undoubtedly been oak furniture, as we were the first company to sell a large range of (this type of furniture) online. This enabled us to become very competitive in the top quality furniture market and broaden our customer base.”

The placement on the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list is considered a real indicator for some of the ‘companies to watch’. Last year’s list included Innocent Drinks, Gü chocolate pudding, Silver Cross prams and Tyrrells Potato Chips.

About Pine Solutions:
Since Pine Solutions.co.uk went online in 2002, it has become one of the UK’s largest online suppliers of pine and oak furniture. Despite an ever-increasing furniture range, the company is always committed to keeping delivery times to a minimum and is proud of its average 6 day lead-time.

Pine Solutions work in partnership with a number of international furniture suppliers to make sure only the best quality pieces of furniture are available to customers, boasting close business relationships with some of the UK’s leading suppliers; Flexiload and Alan Reilly.

The Elbow Friend Is A New Armrest Attachment Product In The Ergonomic Office And Home Chair Accessory Market

ElbowFriend.com is now offering the Elbow Friend, a new level of armrest comfort in the ergonomic office and home chair accessory market. The Elbow Friend is an effective 8″ long, padded cushion that attaches on top of a chair’s existing armrest, to provide an affordable armrest replacement for home, office or waiting room chairs. The Elbow Friend was created by a Film & Television Editor who’s spent more than a decade working in uncomfortable office chairs developing various forms of wrist, shoulder and neck discomfort. The result is the creation of a more affordable, simple to use and comfortable solution than the currently available solutions.

According to a study by Ergonomics Consulting Firm Humanics Ergo Systems, Inc.,”Armrests relieve loads on not just the arm, but the neck, shoulders and arms…Working with unsupported arms may impair circulation, restrict the natural range of shoulder motion, degenerate shoulder tendons, and dramatically shorten time to fatigue. Supporting one’s arms can help prevent neck, shoulder and arm pain and discomfort.”

The product works by simply attaching the hook & loop straps to a chair’s armrest and cinching to secure in place. The stretchy cushion is filled with ergonomically friendly, rounded pellets which provide a very soft, pliable and more comfortable rest for the elbow and forearm than other solutions utilizing gels or foams. The Elbow Friend will give instant relief from most of the hard, molded plastic armrests of the economy office chairs that dominate offices today.

The Elbow Friend is currently available and retails for $14.95 for a pair.

For additional information on the news that is the subject of this release (or for a sample product or demo), contact Stephen Goetsch or visit http://www.elbowfriend.com.

About ElbowFriend.com

A Site That Offers What Women Want

Read this if:

You are a man seeking to buy a gift she really wants.
You are a lady whose had more than you fair share of ‘interesting’ presents
You want to take the hassle out of present buying

Working in an upmarket gift shop gave Elizabeth Sweeney the idea for I Chose It, a brilliant new website aimed at giving men the chance to buy women the kind of presents they really, really want 

Why is it that some men are such rubbish when it comes to buying their loved ones gifts? You could perhaps forgive the younger guys who’ve only just got together with a girl but you’d think that after years of marriage men would know what their wives want. 

The answer, though, was always that they didn’t have a clue. I was constantly amazed at the men who used to come into the giftshop where I worked and stand there, gawping.

“Can you help me? I have to get something for my wife’s birthday/wedding anniversary/Christmas/Valentine’s Day present,” they’d say, looking at me with a soulful, puppy-dog expression. 

“When’s the event?” I’d enquire.

“Umm, it’s today,” they’d say, almost every time. “It doesn’t matter what I get, I just want to buy her something nice.”

Money was hardly ever an object – what was important was getting her something quickly. They’d always head straight for the obvious gifts – a very predictable piece of jewellery. And then they’d get to the till and say, “I’m awful at wrapping things up, could you gift-wrap it for me?” 

Women, on the other hand, would come into the shop and sigh over the lovely things they’d like to own. “I can’t buy it for myself because it would just be so self indulgent,’’ they’d say, looking longingly at a tiny bottle of expensive bath oil or a pink lariat necklace in rose quartz and silver. “Maybe my husband will get me one for my birthday.”

This gave me the idea for our website www.ichoseit.co.uk supplying beautiful gifts for men to buy to give to the women they love. I reasoned that present buying and giving should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience for everyone involved, yet it clearly wasn’t something that the guys were enjoying one bit. 

First I looked at other websites purporting to sell a similar dream but they were very predictable and sold chocolates and the kind of black and red lingerie that blokes think women like but actually women don’t want to be seen dead in. And slowly I realised there was a niche here that was ripe for the picking. 

So I set up the website I Chose It (www.ichoseit.co.uk), with my brother Nigel. I ran everything past him to get a male point of view, and together we came up with a selection of jewellery, bath products, candles, homeware, clothes and accessories. We sourced a lot of our products locally to our homes in Sussex and it felt good to support small businesses.

In choosing our gifts, I looked for individual luxury items that women would love to wear, to put in their homes or to use on a daily basis. In short wonderful Gifts for Women

Nigel and I hope that the women who receive our gifts will enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed finding them. We also know they will love and appreciate the way each gift arrives, nestled in its own beautiful gift-wrapped box, surrounded with coordinated tissue and ribbon. And of course, there’s nothing to stop women buying their own presents fromI Chose It, either!

Top present buying tips:-
If you’re not absolutely sure of her size, go for accessories like gloves and scarves
Listen to her: women always give out hints about what they want
Buy something that’s uniquely for her, not for the whole family
Don’t buy the same thing you bought last year, even if she loved it!

Burton announce VAT price reductions will be passed on to all customers from the 1st December

Following The Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling’s decision to cut Value Added Tax (VAT) from 17.5 per cent to 15 per cent, Sir Philip Green’s Arcadia Group has released a statement on behalf of a group of the high street’s most powerful retailers, confirming they will pass the full VAT cut onto their customers.

The change in the VAT rate will mean huge changes for all the shops in the Arcadia group, as all shelving and register prices will need to be updated. However, Burton, Arcadia, Mosaic Fashions, Bhs, Marks & Spencer, New Look and Next all confirmed in the statement they planned to pass the 2.5% VAT cut on to customers on Monday, or soon afterwards.

The group of retailers covers some of the biggest names on the high street, including; Topshop, Topman, Wallis, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge, Evans, Burton, Bhs, Oasis, Coast, Karen Millen, Warehouse, Principles, Shoe Studio Group, Jane Norman, New Look and Next fascias.

The statement by Sir Philip said: “Following the recent announcement reducing VAT from 17.5% to 15%, equating to a price reduction of 2.13%, we are pleased to confirm that it is our intention to pass the benefit of this reduction onto our customers.”

The price reduction will be given on standard rated product and will be applied on, or as soon after Monday December 1 as possible.

The statement added that this would, “allow for the complexities of implementing the changes required.”

It is unclear how the price cuts will be implemented, however many retailers are expected to take off the discount at the till point rather than by re-ticketing stock.

For Burton, all mens clothing, mens suits and mens accessories will be adjusted at point of purchase as of 1st December 2008.

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.

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
