The Line Up's Top 10 Blog Posts of 2017

Posted by Meagan on Dec 28, 2017

Champagne Leo (20) Crop.jpgThe Champagne Leotard, our best seller of 2017! 

We had a wonderful 2017 at The Line Up, full of new and exciting things! We launched a series of new dance videos featuring our amazing and talented models,  Kate and Ali signed on as our first ever #LineUpVIPs, we worked with TRIBE 99 to help bring you the 2017 Dance Combine,  and we've formed some phenomenal partnerships with new and familiar dance, skate, and cheer friends. 

While we're looking forward to 2018 and all of the fun things on the horizon (including Superbowl 52 that will be right in our back yard!) we decided to look back on what blog posts resonated most with you in 2017.  Below are our Top 10 Blog Posts from 2017!

What's That Job: Costume Fit Models Pam and Taylor

Posted by Trista on Jun 12, 2017

 Dance Costume Model | New Product

 Costume fit model Taylor tries on a new outfit before it hits the hip hop catalog.

We have a small but important rule here at The Line Up: every sample garment that leaves the building MUST be tried on.

Every day at 1pm sharp, you can find our team at Fit Session, where a costume fit model tries on all of our new designs.  Whether its a custom design for a client or new product going up on our store, we like to make sure every pattern is right and fits a REAL body. Putting it on a mannequin is helpful, but a real body is best in order to move and dance in it as intended!

This leads to one very unique job at The Line Up: a Fit Model.  These ladies are our real life, size small mannequins, and often get poked and prodded as they test out all our sample garments.  

We sat down with Pam and Taylor, our past and present fit models, for our new employee spotlight series. Check out what they had to say about their highly unusual but very important job!

The Line Up Got a Makeover!

Posted by Deb on Jun 9, 2016

 All_Staff_-_June_2016-edit.jpg

Once upon a time, The Line Up was one person (a much younger and more energetic me, Deb Erickson) scurrying about patterning, cutting, sewing, and discovering ways to make you look great. Today, The Line Up has evolved into a team of 40+ individuals!  I  am constantly amazed when I watch our powerful and talented talent group work together to create fashion forward performance apparel for you. 

Last year we celebrated our 25th anniversary, and it was a time to reflect on who we are and where we are going.  We had so many questions!  And as we answered these questions  as we matured to the age of 26 - we decided it was time for a makeover! Let me tell you about our new brand!

Top 6 Reasons Why We Love Working at The Line Up

Posted by Deb on Mar 31, 2016

25 Yr Group Pic

When I tell people that I own a custom costume company, often the reaction is "Wow! That must be so fun!" And while there is a lot of creativity and sparkle on the surface, what lies beneath is an amazing team of people that really feel like my extended family. I've tried hard over the last 25 years to make this a genuinely great place to work - a place where each person can find a place to be successful and do work that doesn't feel like work! A place that you can continually learn and invest in yourself!

We have over 40 extraordinary individuals at our Minnesota facility, and we are always looking for more talent! One thing that makes The Line Up unique? We're like no other apparel business in that we do everything in house - from customer service to catalog creation to product design and manufacturing. There's an intimacy here that you can't always find in big business.

WANTED: Talented individuals seeking a collaborative work environment, in a growing and improving community!

If this is you, read further. Not only do we have some great new job opportunities , but our staff wants to share our company values - the 6 reasons why they love working at The Line Up:

Did you know that The Line Up is proud to call THREE current and former employees Pro-Bowl Alumni?

Boom. Wondering how it all came about? Here's a look behind the scenes of that day!
