Whooga Ugg Boots Spread to the UK and US

Industry: Apparel & Fashion

Originating in Australia back in 2003 Whooga ugg boots have spread like wildfire across the United States and now look set to sweep the UK. The Australian ugg boot market is a dramatically different market to the US and UK in a number of ways. Driving up the East coast of Australia you will pass many small businesses which offer their own brand of ugg boots. Typically these businesses are generations old and the owner has learned to craft his or her skills working in the back room of the store making each and every pair by hand. Unlike the majority of modern footwear manufacturers these store owners are the craftsman responsible for the manufacturing of the product and also the person interacting directly with and obtaining feedback from the customer. This level of involvement and decades of refinement have resulted in a myriad of stores which offer a very competitive and refined ugg boot. Ugg boots are unlike other types of footwear, the recipe for warmth, comfort and durability is a complex one with many secret ingredients.

Boots Stocks New Alli Weight Loss Product

 

Released on: June 4, 2009, 11:34 am
Author: Boots
Industry: Healthcare

Boots have announced the arrival of alli, a new over the counter weight loss medicine. alli (Orlistat 60mg), available at Boots without prescription and is suitable for adults with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 28 or over, who are prepared to make changes to their diet – and Advantage Card holders who purchase alli from Boots are eligible for a whole host of added savings and benefits.

As one of UK’s leading healthcare retailers, Boots is a popular destination for those wanting to find out more about how to lose weight safely and effectively through takingalli. Boots pharmacists are on hand for expert, personalised help and advice without an appointment, and will be able to recommend the best way to help customers lose weight with the help of the weight loss aid, alli.

Weight loss advice from Boots experts:

“If customers want to lose weight, their pharmacist is a good first point of call,” said Boots Pharmacist Angela Chalmers, “They will be able to ascertain a method of weight loss which would be suitable, provide advice and set realistic goals. They are there to help the customer and monitor their progress, so they really don’t have to go it alone. They don’t even have to make an appointment, just pop into their local Boots store.”

The first step towards losing weight is for customers to find out their BMI, which for a healthy person is between 18.5 and 24.9. Boots has installed easy-to-use Healthy-Weight Check Machines in larger stores throughout the UK which enable customers to ensure they are making the right weight-loss decision for their individual needs. The machines give a healthy weight assessment that measures their height, weight, and BMI at the cost of just 50 pence.

For those on a reduced calorie and lower fat diet, they may find it helpful to consider supplementation, to help ensure they are meeting all their nutritional needs while on a diet.

Boots Positive Healthcare Technical Expert Nick Bennett said: “If customers are taking aweight loss product that reduces fat absorption, then they may wish to consume extra fat soluble vitamins and important fatty acids such as EPA and DHA which may otherwise be lacking in the diet. A good way to do this is by building a foundation of supplementation to include a complete A-Z of vitamins and minerals, an omega 3 supplement, such as a high strength fish oil, and a probiotic supplement to help maintain the health of the digestive tract while it experiences potentially radical changes in food intake.”

Boots launches Christmas TV advert featuring the Sugababes

Released on: November 18, 2008, 9:31 am

Press Release Author: Carrie Eames

Industry: Entertainment

Press Release Summary: Boots has launched its Christmas TV advert featuring the Sugababes hit single Girls

Press Release Body: Boots’ Christmas TV advert from 2007 won an industry Gold Award in The Campaign Magazine Big Awards. The company has now launched this year’s seasonal advert, and it features the Sugababes’ hit single ‘Girls’.

In 2007 the Boots TV advert gave real insight into the lengthy preparations women make when getting ready for that all-important Christmas party. The music that accompanied it was ‘Here Come the Girls’ by Ernie K Doe, originally a hit in the 1970s.

This year, Boots‘ new Christmas advert celebrates the art of choosing great gifts for your colleagues this season. The advert shows Boots knows that women want to get it right, finding the perfect present at a price they can afford.

Boots has teamed up with the Sugababes, the UK’s biggest girl band, for this year’s campaign. The advert features the trio’s recent single ‘Girls’, which includes a sample of ‘Here Come the Girls’ by Ernie K Doe. The Sugababes feel-good single has been selling fast in selected Boots stores across the nation, and Bootshas matched the 10p donation to the White Ribbon Alliance for every copy it has rung through its tills.

The theme of the song reflects the feminine traits highlighted in the advert. Set in an office, viewers will see women making lists, lovingly wrapping presents, and even offering themselves up as gifts in a bid to ensure they give the perfect ‘Secret Santa’ present.

Throughout the commercial viewers are given hints of items that would make ideal Christmas gifts for friends, family and colleagues this year. From beauty products for a bushy-browed boss who receives the ‘No7 Eye and Brow Kit‘ to a colleague who has a soft spot for cuddly toys who receives the ‘In the Night Garden Soft Friends Gift Pack’, the message is there is something for everyone. With a huge range of Christmas gifts for 2008 under £5 and many presents part of a three for two mix ‘n’ match offer at Boots this season, ‘Secret Santa’ has never been so easy.

The office scene was shot over a period of five days in a disused office block. There were 400 women on the site and only 50 men, but everyone had a go at wrapping their own ‘Secret Santa’ present. In keeping with the theme of their advert, this year more than 2800 staff at Boots UK’s Nottingham and Feltham support offices will be attempting to break the world record for the largest number of people involved in a ‘Secret Santa’ on one day.

Boots Beauty Boutique increases its offering with five new brands

Released on: November 17, 2008, 11:30 am

Press Release Author: Carrie Eames

Industry: Consumer Services

Press Release Summary: Boots has introduced five new brands to its online shop for niche beauty brands including cult skincare lines and luxury body care for its Boots Beauty Boutique

Press Release Body: 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 introduces SAD lights as the clocks go back

Released on: November 14, 2008, 8:28 am

Press Release Author: Carrie Eames

Industry: Consumer Services

Press Release Summary: Boots has introduced a new range of clocks and lamps to help combat Seasonal Affective Disorder as the clocks go back

Press Release Body: 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 creates the very first fragrance in aid of BBC Children in Need

Released on: November 13, 2008, 9:53 am

Press Release Author: Carrie Eames

Industry: Consumer Services

Press Release Summary: Boots has created two fragrances as part of its support of this years BBC Children in Need campaign

Press Release Body: 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 tenPudsey 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
