Damart Looks Great in Pink!

Not ones to shy away from fancy dress, here at Damart we’ve all dressed up in our wackiest pink costumes in aid of national Wear it Pink Day, supporting the Breast Cancer Campaign.

Everyone from the call centre staff to the financial directors have got into the spirit of things, wearing the brightest pink outfit they could find; there are certainly lots of comedy pink wigs and tutus on show!

Throughout the day there’s lots of activities to take part in, including tannoy bingo, quizzes, guess the amount of sweets in the jar and everyone’s favourite – the bun and cake stall!

These beautiful cupcakes that were baked by a member of the marketing team have definitely been the biggest hit…and to top it off, they taste even better than they look!

John Bottomley, Marketing Director at Damart commented, “This is one of our favourite days in the calendar as it means we can have lots of fun dressing up and still raise money for this worthwhile cause. Last year we raised just under £1,000 so fingers crossed we can raise even more this year.

This year, Damart’s limited edition Pink Vest is being modelled by Beverley Knight. Unfortunately the pink vest has exceeded all expectations and we've run out of stock...but do not panic, we've ordered some more and they should be with us very shortly!

A Healthy Cheque for a Healthy Heart

Roxanne with Damart's Marketing Director, John
and 2 HRUK employees

Friday 22nd October saw the end of Heart Research UK’s Healthy Heart Week- a campaign aimed at raising awareness of heart disease and the importance of a healthy lifestyle within the region.

As a fitting end to a busy week for the HRUK team, Roxanne Pallett kindly gave up half an hour of her busy schedule to present the charity with a cheque of approximately £4,700- the final amount she helped to raise through sales of last year’s ‘Love Your Heart’ t-shirt, designed by Damart, which she kindly modeled for the charity.

Roxanne Pallett commented, ““I was thrilled to be part of Damart’s campaign to raise money for Heart Research UK and the fantastic research projects they’re involved in. A lot of women are unaware that cardiovascular disease is such a big risk to them and that is why I have supported this positive campaign.”

This is the third year that Damart has supported this worthwhile charity, which helps fund pioneering research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease, the biggest killer among women in the UK.

The 2011 new Heart Research UK vest will be available to buy in January, with pictures of the new model coming soon!

Marvellous Mohair!

Fancy a bit of luxury this winter? Damart has a great selection of mohair hats for chic winter style. Mohair is a fabulous wool from the Angora goat and has many great qualities - it's silky, lightweight and above all very insulating and warm.

These super soft hats come in 3 styles - trilby, beret and wide rimmed, and are available in various colours. Complete your outfit with rich vibrant colour or choose a co-ordinating tone to your outerwear. Either way, these hats are a fantastic addition to your winter wardrobe and will make you look absolutely fabulous!

Wednesday, 20 October 2010's cold outside!

It’s grey. It’s cold. Winter is fast approaching and unfortunately it’s time to crack out the coat, hat, gloves and scarves.

Whether you’re strutting down the train station platform with coffee-in-hand, or enjoying a leisurely Winter wonderland walk, thermals are the key.

Damart’s gorgeously sleek, new thermal range has an array of items to avoid that bulky, dowdy feeling whilst staying cosily warm and fashionable this season; including pretty vest tops and crocheted leggings in this season’s key autumnal colours.

What better to go under that oversize chunky knit than a lacy vest? Team a pair of stylish thermal leggings with a pencil skirt for the office, or layer a cute vest under a body-con for the Christmas party and you’ve got a funky, comfy look to combat the big freeze.

Damart is the number one for thermals. The combination of their intelligent fabric blends, and innovative designs make them a must-have for any Winter wardrobe.

Strictly Come Dancing Starts Tonight!

Strictly is back and we cannot wait! The 14 new dancers have been training hard over the past couple of weeks and tonight it's their time to shine....or maybe not! I think there are a few clear 'non dancers' in the line up, including Anne Widdecombe - one reason to tune into BBC 1 tonight! Another reason to watch is to check out the amazing outfits they will be wearing. Each year they get more and more flamboyant and colourful whilst Ola's dresses get smaller and smaller!

This year the lovely Felicity Kendal (best known for her part in The Good Life) is flying the flag for the glamorous grannies and she is looking amazing. Dancing with Vincent Simone, I'm sure the pair will have a very good chance of getting through the first round.

If you too get the urge to dance around your living room, why not do it in style. This year have a stunning Diamante Front Dress fit for any living room or dance floor! The dress comes in three colours, Magenta, Black and Teal and the added sparkle will make you feel extra special.
