PRESS RELEASE: (Evening Times) January 2015, 'Shadow Secretary of State, Margaret Curran MP blushes red'.....

Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland, Margaret Curran MP, saw red on her visit to Glasgow-based global-wide Vanilla Blush today – red knickers that is!

Laughing along with Vanilla Blush’s CEO Nicola Dames, leading Labour politician Margaret dropped the blue knickers, which were gifted to her, to opt for her party colours of red.

Nicola, who heads global-brand Vanilla Blush from Glasgow East, said: “I offered the blue knickers to Margaret, and not knowing my politics that well, it was a case of red blushes for not offering the red knickers. Only now do I realize blue is not her party colours!  

“I’ve had a quick lesson in politics, and now I know red knickers are the choice of Labour’s Margaret!

But laughing aside, it was great to meet Margaret. She is our constituency MP and we were delighted she could come and visit our flag-ship store, Europe’s very first specialised underwear and swimwear shop.

Nicola continued: “We’ve had such great support, from the likes of Alex Neil, former Health Minister, from John Mason, local MSP and former MP, and from the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. Now to have Margaret visit us, I can only say that not only am I delighted with the huge ongoing support, but it is great to have such a crash-course of lessons in politics….I’ve never known so much about the politics until we opened our store last April!

"I can only say it is a great privilege meeting Margaret, not only is she clearly someone of great gravitas, being the shadow Secretary of State for Scotland, and very possibly will be a main player in the soon-to-be-new UK Government , but she is very down to earth and great company."

Margaret Curran, the MP for Glasgow East, said: "I'm delighted to congratulate Nicola Dames and her staff on their prestigious award. 

“Nicola has shown sound business sense by founding and expanding this specialist, Glasgow-based company which also cares sensitively for its valued customers and helps them live positively with what can be a challenging condition.

“Vanilla Blush is exactly the sort of new business that Scotland needs and I'm delighted to see it expanding and, deservedly, establishing an international reputation in its field."

Nicola concluded laughingly: “I must admit that, even though I can predict a person’s knicker size from twenty yards, I really must get learning my party political colours so that I get the right colour knickers for next time!!!”

PRESS RELEASE: March, 2015, 'John Mason MSP drops SNP-pants test?'.....

Vanilla Blush co-owner, Simon Dames, was delighted to welcome back MSP John Mason to Europe's very first specialised underwear and swimwear shop - and to test the MSP to see if he would drop his SNP-coloured pants for Labour red or Tory blue?

But in good humour the former MP, and now MSP for Glasgow Shettleston, remained loyal to his party colours by opting for some SNP-style boxers.

Simon said: "We have had really great support from Scotland's high-profile leaders over the years, and John has always been one of those well known people who has really been supportive.

"It's of course a real pleasure to have such a prominent public face as John pop in, offer as much support as possible, and still be enthusiastic for some good humour, especially with the offer of Labour red and Tory blue boxers! But it was inevitable that, with the General election around the corner of May 7, John would stay true to his party colours and go for the SNP-style boxer!!"

And of course, amongst this feel-good-factor is the great news that Vanilla Blush continues to flourish as a market leader, not just within Scotland, nor just within the UK, but across the continent as well as globally. That is why we are so proud to have MSP John Mason visit Vanilla Blush and view our prestigious fashion-industry UK Lingerie Award trophy." 

John Mason MSP said: "I was at the opening of the Vanilla Blush shop in the East End of Glasgow in 2014, Europe's very first specialised underwear and swimwear store. One year on and I am very pleased to learn that the Glasgow-based Vanilla Blush continues to grow, now with contracts not just in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland, but also in a number of mainland European countries such as France. 

Not only has Vanilla Blush brought a spark of colour to the window fronts of Glasgow’s East End, it has also brought a spark of colour to Scotland’s thriving business sector."
