Thoughts on being an intern?

I really enjoyed being an intern at TEAL Apparel. I not only had fun, but I feel that I learned a lot about how a business runs. I really loved being up close with the products, and being able to see all the different facets of how the product goes from being an idea to becoming a reality. I liked that TEAL was a small company, because I feel that if I had interned at a large corporation, I wouldn’t have learned as much. 
  

What did you expect?

I don’t really know what I expected to be honest. I guess when I think of an intern and an internship, I think of someone who is fetching coffees for the big boss. But that is not what TEAL was like at all. I didn’t think as an intern that Jenni would ask for my opinion or my input on products as much as she did. I also didn’t think the internship would be as hands on as it was.

Best part of the internship?

There were a lot of best parts of this internship for me. One of the parts that I really enjoyed was going to the factory. I loved seeing where and how the clothing was made. I also really liked sitting in on meetings with Jenni. I thought it was very interesting to see how meetings like this work. I think I learned a lot from watching Jenni in these meetings, and hearing and seeing the types of questions she asks, and how she answers the questions that are posed to her.

What surprised you the most?

 
Hmmm…The thing that surprised me the most is how cool Jenni is and how passionate she is about TEAL Apparel. Like I said, I didn’t really know what to expect with this Internship, but Jenni exceeded anything that I could have imagined. She was just so helpful, I feel that I’ve learned a lot with just talking to Jenni and getting advice on my future. Jenni is very insightful, super encouraging and supportive. I really enjoyed this internship, and all the information and skills that I have gained from this. 
 
 
 
 

 

This past Winter/Spring TEAL had a new first. Instead of one intern we lucked out with two. This dynamic duo came to us from Newbury College, with Fashion Merchandising majors and several shared experiences including, study abroad in Florence, Italty to directing and coordinating the College’s fashion show. To say we hit the jackpot was an understatement. They cranked out blog posts, did research on several new products, sat in on sample fittings, shot tons of material for social media, coordinated a photoshoot, joined a sales pitch to a new client and journeyed to our factory in Everett.  Lauren and Naomi model teamwork, commitment, creativity and determination. Thank you and congratulations on your graduation from Newbury College! Wishing you both much learning and success.

Tall Living: Office Space

February 9th, 2017

Tall Living Desk

 

Tall people know how hard it is to find office furniture with the right proportions. Either your desk is too short and your knees are barely, if at all, fitting under the desk. Or you’re stuck with a short chair that leaves your hips resting below your knees. This can lead to flexion of the spine, and lower back pain.

 

Tall Living Office Space Desk Riser

 

Here are a few solutions. You don’t have to suffer long hours at work cramped up in a standard sized chair at an average desk. One way to fix this is to get desk leg risers. Desk leg risers can come is all shapes and sizes. They simply go underneath each leg of your desk, to give you that extra bit of height that you might need. Another solution is to get a desk top riser, which elevates your computer screen and keyboard so you don’t have to hunch over your desk to get your work done.

Another solution to discomfort in your office is getting a chair that is tall enough. Tall desk chairs allow you to sit at your desired height, and has plenty of back support.

Gone are the days of using cinder blocks and books to raise your desk up!

Tall Hotness Found!

November 17th, 2015

You Are The Bomb

 

family 6

 

Our Fall 2015 Campaign features the gorgeous, generous, game for anything Dow Family! We first met Tuffer earlier this year as a customer. Selling to an underserved niche market we generally have two types of customers: excited and passionate (read: super psyched!). 

 

family 8

 

Tuffer quickly revealed that he was in the latter camp. I recall having an in depth phone conversation with him about tall men’s clothing. We covered everything. One purchase turned into multiple purchases and start of a friendship.

What really sets Tuffer apart is his personality. He is smart funny and self-deprecating, just like TEAL Apparel! When we approached him about being the face of our next campaign he didn’t bat an eyelash.  He even recruited his wife and daughter.

Our shoot took place at the Dexter Southfield Boathouse on the Charles River.  The model, family and location were the perfect reflection of the TEAL Apparel Man.

Tuffer and Erin, we are so lucky to be able to shoot you all. Thank you for rolling with the punches, doing the heavy lifting, erging, sculling and being the best model family we could ever ask for! We are deeply grateful to have friends like you.
