Marks & Spencer Sale and Outlet

Just got tipped off that there's a sale starting in M&S at 8pm online and tomorrow in stores. Not sure yet what's going to be included but there will be up to 50% off some lines. A good opportunity to pick up some Christmas presents perhaps? Click here to shop the sale (after 8pm!)

Also, in my online searches this morning, I found these beauties in the M&S Outlet. Have you ever used the Marks and Spencer Outlet? It's hit and miss but worth a nosy now and again and is great to satisfy those shopping urges if you've missed out on the sale bargains.
Lots of people ask me about my M&S Autograph shoe boots that I wear on nights out. Well they are very similar to these leather ones, currently only £29.50 and available in lots of sizes! For some frustrating reason, I cannot download the photo of the black ones. This is the slate colour with brown trim but if you click on the link, you'll see the black.
Some other nice things spotted in the Outlet were:
Leather Footglove Ankle Boot - £35
Not sure how this coat would work in RL and M&S are not known for their photography talents on their website. But I like the unusual shape and the colour. Worth a try on at least. Lots of other coats, including down filled ones on this link too.
Per Una (I know…shush)Tweed Coat £57
The Outlet also has handbags & purses on this link. As I've been on the look out for a tan handbag, this one caught my eye:
Autograph Leather Hobo Bag - £57
This would make a great party dress - loving the detail on the shoulder that you can see better on the website:
Embellished Shoulder & Peplum Dress (available in all sizes)
And what's not to love about skinny jeans for £17?

Loads of menswear, kids and homewards too. Interestingly, orders and delivery are fulfilled by Amazon so you'll log on with your Amazon password. Cost of delivery is £3.50 with expedited delivery available to UK mainland and certain NI postcodes. Delivery is not currently available outside the UK.

Do let me know if you bag a bargain in the main M&S sale (remember - free in-store collection to avoid postage costs) or in the Outlet. I'll be logging on after choir to see what's left!


  1. I really like the long coat! The round buttons are so cute :)

  2. I bought the black dress on Sunday and it arrived Tuesday. It's absolutely gorgeous! made of black crepe and fits like a glove. Fantastic buy for £49.00.

    Ps - Love your sense of style Avril!!

  3. Some lovely choices ... she says, backing away from the laptop and chanting 'I must not spend, I must not spend'!!

  4. I have an outlet near me and that coat looked good on the hanger, didn't try it on though.

  5. Thanks for the tip-off. Have just had a browse and picked up a few items of clothing as xmas pressies for nieces and nephews (they'll love me this xmas won't they ha ha!)
    Thanks Avril.

  6. Love that bag and that coat looks like it could be a winner but I'd have to try it on before I could really say.



  7. Ooooh I didn't know about the outlet - I so wish they shipped to the US - there are so many of us Brits here who would love the touch of home that M&S could deliver!

  8. I LOVE those strappy boots. Gutted they don't have them in my size. Bet they're really comfy...
