DALLAS, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Belk, the nation's largest family owned and operated department store company, is the official style destination of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. Belk is prominently featured in this season of Country Music Television's (CMT) popular reality series DALLAS COWBOYS CHEERLEADERS: MAKING THE TEAM. Episode five of the reality series airs Friday, September 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CMT. The episode will showcase Belk at Galleria Dallas and this season's fashion do's and don'ts from DCC director Kelli Finglass and head choreographer Judy Trammell.
In May, Belk announced a three-year partnership agreement with DCC that includes endorsements, appearances, and numerous co-branded marketing initiatives. Throughout October, Belk will be the exclusive provider of the iPromise clothing line for the benefit of Susan G. Komen outside of the Dallas Cowboys Pro Shops. The iPromise clothing line will be sold starting in late September, just in time for national breast cancer awareness month.
"It has been a true pleasure to work with America's most iconic cheerleading squad. The entire Belk family is thrilled to see the wonderful women of DCC peruse the latest and greatest in fall fashion at our Galleria Dallas store," said Jon Pollack, EVP of marketing, sales promotion and eCommerce at Belk. "We look forward to working with America's favorite cheerleaders for years to come."
Kelli Finglass and Judy Trammell's wardrobes feature Modern. Southern. Style. from Belk Galleria Dallas throughout season nine of DALLAS COWBOYS CHEERLEADERS: MAKING THE TEAM. Belk and the DCC organization also work together on public appearances at the store, in-stadium presence for Belk at Dallas Cowboys home games, radio commercials and an exclusive fashion line called iPromise which benefits Susan G. Komen. Fans can engage with Belk and DCC via social media using the hashtag #DCCBelkDallas.
"Fans of the show will appreciate our tie-in with Belk since the company's fashion, style and southern values mirror what the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders represent," said Finglass. "We've really enjoyed our partnership and are excited about the looks we're featuring from Belk throughout the football season."
In April, Belk opened its first flagship location in Texas at Galleria Dallas. The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders were on hand to celebrate with performances, photos, and autographs at the Grand Opening charity event and ribbon cutting event. The 180,000-square-foot anchor store features three floors of shopping and carries high-end designer brands such as Nanette Lepore, Pink Tartan, Bonobos, Eileen Fisher, French Connection, Free People, Michael Kors, Laura Mercier and a Kate Spade Shop.

About the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders
The world-renowned Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders have dazzled crowds around the globe since 1972. Introduced to Texas Stadium to add entertainment and excitement to the NFL game-day experience, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders quickly became an American icon, creating an international phenomenon that was quickly replicated throughout the NFL. The troupe's blend of glamour, beauty, showmanship, explosive dances featuring poms and their signature kickline has solidified the elite performance group's position as one of the most well-known symbols of pop culture. The ladies' signature star-spangled uniforms set the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders image and style apart and has brought international notoriety, that while often imitated, has yet to be duplicated in popularity and prominence. Nicknamed "America's Sweethearts," the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders are ambassadors of good cheer across the country and serve as the Dallas Cowboys primary military outreach liaisons. With 75 international USO tours to their name, the Cheerleaders are recipients of three prestigious service awards for their work with the military – the Spirit of Bob Hope Award, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Award and the American Legion Award. Frequent guest performances on national television shows like Oprah, Saturday Night Live, American Idol and The View only accompany the troupe's own highly rated CMT reality show titled "Making The Team" – now in its ninth season.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
