Sarah on what she learned  

Thoughts on being an intern?

Being an intern has the notorious reputation of being the person who is just there to make coffee runs and stay out of the way, but working at TEAL was a completely different experience. I got hands on experience in learning how a small business runs and how the CEO must be able to run all aspects of the company. 
 

What did you expect?

Never being an intern before, I really had no idea what to expect. Due to the short time of the internship, however, I was nervous that I wouldn’t learn anything substantial and would adjust to a new environment just to leave. But I was completely wrong, because I felt at home immediately and found the two weeks extremely productive. 
 

Best part of the internship?

The best part of the internship was being able to experience the marketing side of fashion, something I have never been introduced to before in my life. I also got to watch Jenni pitch her company to a possible buyer, helping me learn how necessary it is to be able to eloquently sell your idea or company. 
 

What surprised you the most?

I was surprised most by how much fun I had doing the photoshoots, but also how much unseen work and effort goes into getting good photos for a website or catalog.

I had the unique pleasure of meeting and working with Sarah this past Spring. She came to us as a Dexter Southfield High School senior and spent 2 weeks doing a little bit of everything: coordinating photoshoots, finding models, photographing and videoing TEAL’s products and capturing her vision for the brand as well as joining a sales pitch to a buyer and preparing materials for fulfillment. Sarah models grace under pressure and contributed commitment, passion and new ideas! Thank you and good luck at George Washington University this Fall.

Found: Mr. Clutch

November 26th, 2014


Mr. Clutch: Charlie Clapp

In the final throes of our Fall 2014 photo shoot preparation we had the slim fit chinos, but no model. Fortuitously, the Head of the Charles Regatta was taking place and I took my family to take in the elaborate festivities and get a glimpse of the reigning National Champions, the University of Washington Men’s 8. While at the UW Alumni tent I was introduced to Charlie by his Father Charlie (Rower and Silver Medalist in the 1984 Olympics), after asking if he knew of any guys who’d fit the bill of a slim fit model. Since rowing and athleticism are in the Clapp blood I took one look at Charlie and knew immediately we had found our slim fit guy. He was sold on being the “global face” of TEAL and willing to help a brand that he could relate with. 

 


Charlie Clutch Stats:

 

  • 6’3″, 165 lbs.
  • 2014 Graduate of University of Wisconsin at Madison
  • Medalist at 2012, 2013, 2014 IRA National Championships
  • Uber athlete – ski, golf, sail, play tennis, bike and take the boat to the beach with friends.
  • Tall Challenge: I feel like every time I go into a store it is difficult to find my size in stock. Finding pants for my slim waist and long legs are hard to come by. This can be frustrating and TEAL Apparel offers the perfect solution.

 

Charlie -

You are the man. Thanks so much for helping us out! We couldn’t have done it without you.
