UA Comes to Polyvore!

We’ve received such good feedback from our “Switch & Mix These 6″ collections that we sent out via email that we decided to expand into providing customers with more scrub outfit ideas via Polyvore.  Now we can share with all of our followers on Polyvore and Pinterest our latest “Switch & Mix” scrub outfit creations.  It’s our goal to show our customers how they can get the most bang for their buck by coordinating their favorite pair of scrub pants with several different tops to create many workday scrubs outfit combinations!

Keep in mind, these creations are only our ideas, we look forward to seeing what variations and unique “spins” our customers put on these templates that we create.  Check out these two sets we did recently for the 4th of July next week.  Are you planning on dress patriotically for the upcoming holiday?

About a month ago we introduced our new line, Advantage by UA ™ and held a contest to give away 5 sets of this luxuriously soft and stretchy new collection.  We were thrilled that some of our loyal customers got to give them a “test run” at work, and were even more excited when they gave us their valuable feedback on our new line!

“The scrubs are wonderful…soft, comfortable, and stretchy.  They move with me whether I am reaching above my head or having to squat down to the floor.  That is a huge plus, because many others just simply feel like they are tightening against me and restricting my movements, or either they are falling off and/or getting caught on things.”

“I am very happy with the quality of the fabric, the construction, the fit and the nifty top stitching makes it a classy looking piece. I have recommended your website and this particular line to all my co-workers.”

I really like the cut of the scrubs.  I actually look like I have a shape, rather than the boxy look I usually have.  One color I would like to see would be a royal blue or a bright vibrant blue.  I would definitely recommend these to others!”

For anyone else who has tried the new Advantage™ by UA scrubs line—we’d love to hear what you think!

UA vs. The Runway: Fall 2012

Not quite ready to ditch that bathing suit and sunscreen?  We aren’t either…but whether we like it or not, fall is creeping a little closer.  We’re here to help ease the pain with a guide to the fashion trends that are just around the corner, and simple ways you can stay fashionable in your medical uniforms come autumn.

Orange

Summer’s hottest color, tangerine isn’t going anywhere this fall.  Orange hues are here to stay!  These runway looks pair the hue with browns, olives, and blacks to make it transition perfectly into the next season.  Opt for a muted orange or go bright, whichever fits your personality, and you’re sure to look both festive and runway ready in your scrubs!

Tartan Plaid

Plaid is a classic fall staple, reminiscent of both a crisp day outdoors and a warm night by the fire.  Put your own feminine twist on this tomboy look with these scrub tops tailored perfectly for a feminine silhouette. The Cherokee top actually combines two of fall’s hottest trends (plaid AND animal print!)

Missoni Inspired:  Missoni inspired and Chevron prints are everywhere now (including his much hyped line for Target!) Its premise is the timeless zig zag pattern taken to a whole new level when combined with bold color accents and flamed stitching.  Don’t let the fact that you have to wear medical scrubs on a daily basis keep you from rocking this runway look!

Fierce Felines

There’s one trend that seems to pop up season after season, whether it’s on clothing, footwear, or accessories…and that trend is animal prints!  This fall is no exception, with furry, texturized pieces inspired by leopards and cheetahs coming prowling down the catwalk! Check out these work friendly scrub versions to make your day at the hospital or doctor’s office a little fiercer.

Snag Sophie’s Summer Style

Sophie's Picks Uniform Advantage

Just looking at this top puts me in a good mood!  Its lightweight material and whimsical print are both perfect for Summer.   This cheery pink scrub top also offers an elastic back, which is a great alternative to a tie, if a tie back isn’t for you.  It also has side seams and binding for a tailored fit, and both create an elongated, slimming shape (and who doesn’t want that!?)

To me, this top is the epitome of tranquility!  And, let’s be honest.. what more do we wish for while we’re at work than to be somewhere else on a tropical ocean getaway!?  If we can’t do that..this “Blue Escape” scrub top is the next best thing.  It’s also very figure-friendly with a cute keyhole neck tie and a back tie to be a customizable perfect fit for everyone.

Sweet Summertime…Means New Sophie’s Picks!

The first “official” day of Summer is still a couple weeks away, but that won’t stop me from sharing 2 of my new “Sophie’s Picks”!  There’s a common theme as you can see, PINK, which happens to be one of my favorite warm-weather colors for its “happy” vibe.   This first one is ultra-girly with a keyhole neckline and gathering at the neck and shoulders and the fun print reminds me of cherry pie at a family picnic, a summer staple!  It coordinates with 3 shades of pink in addition to the standard black, which makes it a great piece for your uniforms rotation to “mix and match”.   My second pick is more than just a cute top, it’s a way to show your support for a good cause and encourage those around you to do the same.  I think it would look best paired with a pink scrub jacket (you may be saying jacket in summer!?) but sometimes you need a way to combat an over-cranked AC!

A UA Makeover Success Story!

Uniform Advantage Uniform Makeover

Uniform Advantage recently partnered with Dr. Pyle’s Dental Practice in Weston, FL to do a complete uniform makeover.

A uniform look is important to Dr. Pyle because he’s found it makes busy mornings easier for his staff, improves patient perception, and optimizes team morale.  Since they are also located in South Florida, Uniform Advantage was able to go on-site to alleviate the stress that their office manager, Beth, had experienced in the past from the group ordering process.  Beth found that in the past, ordering for the entire office had proved to be a time consuming and exhausting task that was full of returns and exchanges.

When it came time for the staff to get new scrubs, it was Uniform Advantage to the rescue!   Our Outbound Sales team was able to go to the office on their lunch break, in an effort to minimize interruptions to their workday and patient visits.  The UA team came equipped with a variety of samples from several brands that Uniform Advantage carries, and we were thrilled when they picked our very own exclusive, Butter-Soft Scrubs by UA™ brand as their favorite!  Our experienced team helped determine which styles worked best for each staff member based on their body type and personal preferences.  It turned out that some of the styles the staff thought they wouldn’t look good in were their “winning looks”!   Even with a uniform color and matching logos, each staff member was able to look unique and fashionable with their own style in scrub top and pant.  It was a successful (and fun!) day getting to know Dr. Pyle and his staff and helping them look their best, so they can keep the focus on their busy dental practice.

Does your office sound like Dr. Pyle’s?  Enlist the help of our Outbound Sales team by emailing groupsales@uniformadvantage.com .  Our skilled team can travel locally or work remotely with your staff to bring ease to the ordering process and provide your staff members with a uniform (yet customized) look.

To view the complete footage from our day at Dr. Pyle’s, be sure to visit our very own Uniform Advantage You Tube channel here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lo2P7oO6e0.  Let us know what you think of the transformations, we think they look pretty spiffy!
