Christmas ‘Dress Up Day’ For Brian House

All the staff here at Hangerworld really got in to the Christmas spirit this week and helped to raise some much needed funds for Brian House Children’s Hospice (Part of Trinity Hospice) who provide palliative and respite care for children and their families here on the Fylde Coast.

As you can see we all certainly got on board with the Christmas theme, some more than others it has to be said (Didn’t they, Emma? Santa in the middle of this shot in case you hadn’t worked it out) . It was also a very good excuse for cakes and biscuits to be eaten, and as our unofficial motto is ‘Never knowingly refuse cake’ this went down very well with everyone.

The team raised £120 from their efforts, and this will go help Brian House to continue their work to help children with life limiting conditions and their families, because when a child’s life is limited it affects every member of the family, putting them under immense pressure as they attempt to cope with the emotional, practical and financial implications.

Emma and Denise, shown below, striking a bit of a Saturday Night Fever pose, organised the whole event and made sure there that everyone got involved.  Well done you two.

Happy New Year.

Beaded hangers are also extremely practical, and a brilliant way of keeping those strappy dresses, that could easily slide off a regular hanger, looking good and always ready to wear. Boutique beaded hangers also make perfect gift ideas for many special occasions either on their own or to add a little extra something to a clothing gift.

The Pearl effect Hangers are a gorgeous way for you to hang up wedding dresses. They are sturdy enough to hold the extra weight of a wedding dress, and can give a quirky creative twist for wedding day photos for both the bride and bridesmaids.

Rather than relying on a humble coat hook why not glam things up and use a set of multi coloured beaded hangers? They are much more decorative, keep the garment in better condition and keep your home looking more stylish.

Beaded hangers certainly make a versatile and rather stylish addition to your wardrobe, and are shaping up to be one of the most popular additions to the hangerworld range for 2015.

Go on, indulge yourself a little…

The Importance of Wedding Dress Covers

Whether you want a dress bag to store your wedding dress in before and after the wedding, or looking for a bag to transport the garments to the destination getting the perfect wedding dress cover is a necessary part of your planning.

 

Garment Bags for Wedding Dresses

Like every bride there has ever been you’ve probably spent quite a lot of money on your wedding dress. So much so that they should be kept pristine before and after the big day.

Wedding dress covers are available in all different shapes, colours, styles and sizes so making sure you have the right one for your dress can be quite tricky. Here at Hangerworld we really enjoy helping brides to be find the right cover for their dress.

Wedding Dress Cover

For wedding dresses with a wide skirt like this one we’d recommend a long garment bag with an extra wide gusset. Make sure the bag allows your dress to breath but keeps dust, light and insects away.

Wedding Dress Cover

For dresses that are quite ‘straight up and down’ a quality dress bag with a small side gusset for breathing space would be perfect.

Wedding dresses with a ‘fish tail’ bottom are suited to the long dress covers with a wide gusset

…And for those of you lucky enough to be travelling abroad to get married

Travel wedding dress covers with gusset and carry handle are perfect for transporting wedding dresses abroad. They’re a full 72″ length, with a sturdy folding bar and handle in the centre. A small gusset runs along the sides getting wider at the bottom for skirts and trains. They’re also shower proof and breathable and available in various colours!

Clever Clips – How do you use yours?

How do you use yours? 

We have been having a lot of fun here at Hangerworld coming up with creative uses for our range of Clever Clips.

Clever Clips are that versatile they can literally be used for anything. The Hangerworld team have been really creative with their ideas.

Clever ClipsThe standard shoe/boot hanging idea is used by most of our customers. It’s a great way to store your footwear or hang them to dry if you’ve cleaned them.

 

Clever Clips This is such a useful way to use the clips. Any one who uses cooking books will know that they can get very messy when your preparing intricate meals. The clips keep the book out of the way and open on the right page. Perfect!

 

Clever Clips This is a great idea! Tea towels can dry much better when they’re hung. And by using the clips there’s no need for sticky hooks or drilling.

 

This little guys loves clever clips. He never loses his keys any more.

 

Look, they are even used for industrial purposes. Who needs electrical wire clips when you have Clever Clips?!

 

Clever Clips The weathers getting better (sometimes) and the flowers are blooming. You can use Clever Clips to hang plant and flower baskets!

 

How do you use yours? We’d love to know how you use your Clever Clips. The wackier the better!

5 Benefits of Hanging Your Clothes Out to Dry

Now that the weather is improving we’re able to take advantage and hang our clothes to dry either outdoors or indoors (weather permitting). There are benefits to hanging your clothes out to dry and they easily out weigh using a money guzzling, space wasting eco unfriendly dryer.

5 benefits of hanging your clothes out to dry 

1. Hanging your washing means you’re not using the dryer, which also means you’re saving electricity – therefore saving you some pennies each month.

2. Eco-friendly – by not using the dryer you’re reducing your carbon footprint

How to organise your children’s wardrobe

It’s a hard task to keep anything tidy and organised when you have children in the house. Especially in their bedrooms. However, keeping their wardrobes organised and tidy can be quite a simple task and one that the kids themselves can be involved in.

We have 5 products that help keep their spaces tidy, personalised, colourful and organised.

Kids plastic hangers – Children tend to have quite a large amount of clothes. Which means that the space you have needs to be utilised properly. By using thin but strong hangers you are able to keep the space for the clothes rather than the hangers. These rainbow themed plastic hangers are perfect to make any children’s wardrobe bright, personal and even colour coded!

 

Kids flocked hangers – For a more of a ‘grown up’ feel if you have slightly older children who manage their own wardrobe these blue and pink flocked hangers are perfect. They are thin, practical and are flocked to protect clothing and stop garments from falling from the hangers and ending up in a pile at the bottom.

Garment covers – Garment covers are self explanatory… but they are great for protecting expensive items and keeping dust and insects away from delicate clothes. Add some cedar wood balls and you have the ultimate combination for the protection of precious clothes.

Under the bed storage – Under bed storage boxes are extremely practical for storing clothing during the changing seasons, for toys or extra bedding. When storing clothes, linen and even toys you need to be careful of insects, moths and moisture. By storing cedar wood products with the items, you’re less likely to have a nasty surprise when you eventually want the items back out for use again. These products come in various sizes and colours to co ordinate with your child’s room and personality.

Hanging storage – As well as under the bed storage, hanging storage is great if you’re lacking space. These over the door hangers are perfect for storing shoes, accessories, toys and stationary; even cleaning products, kitchen items, bathroom products, anything you can think of storing in them in the rest of your home.

 

Keeping rooms organised helps keep them clean and tidy in the long term. Teaching children a simple value of organisation is beneficial for them as they get older.

 

All of the products listed are available on the Hangerworld website.
