    M&S Sale 24th Sep 17 at 9:42 PM
    Just received a sparks 50% off sale preview email. Hopefully this means the sale will start online and instore Tuesday 26th September :-)

    Official MoneySavingExpert insert Tue 26 Sep: Go online to M&S or in store (find your nearest) to get up to 50% off selected clothing, beauty, home and furniture products.

    The sale began on Tue 26 Sep and M&S says the sale will run while stocks last, so go quick if there’s something you want.

    Big thanks to davelewis for the spot!

    Ah you beat me to it, I was about to post about the M&S sale and provide a link to Priority Access with 50% off.

    However, I would like to remind people that I also received an extra 20% with my account offers so that really was a great bonus

    I wonder where my email is, nothing in junk and I'm supposed to have priority access. Though that was a total waste of time with the last sale.

    I think their new sales strategy is poor, no-one wants to buy summer clothes now! Last year, they were selling these items in August, when there was a chance people wanted them for last minute holidays etc. The only thing I will buy is underwear.

    I don't think I'll be using M&S online sale again. They sent me used underwear, without hygiene seals or tags! I was completely shocked. I realise customers return items, but they shouldn't have accepted it in this condition, least of all sent it out to another customer! Gross. They refunded me without question, but it's not the kind of thing you expect is it?

    Very unlike me as I'm not a usual M&S shopper.

    Worth a browse if you're in town...
    Bought a couple of dresses yesterday
    One was £35 down to £6 odd
    Second was over £50 down to £8.40.

    Loads of stuff on a rail instore in a range of sizes.
    Went down to the M&S outlet and no such bargains!
    Worse things will have happened in the world today...

    One of the items I ordered was a pair of 'jewelled' nude leather sandals for my holidays, reduced from (I think) £29.50 to £8.00.
    They fit perfectly, the insole is padded and the straps are in exactly the right place for my feet.
    But......one of the straps is coming unstitched so they have to go back.
    And they are now out of stock.

    I bought a bikini top - I have a bikini in the same colour & pattern but different style - and managed to find a matching pair of bottoms (again a different style to the pair I already have) in store for £3.00..

    The oxblood shoes are fab!
    Very edgy, look great with opaque tights and jeggings - a bit Dr Marten-ish.

    Las time I'm not even sure they did further reductions after 60% off online, so this might be it.
    I read an article recently where they said they're trying to do away with the very heavy reductions.

    Unfortunately, it's not just a case of the straps coming unstitched, the strap is actually broken right where it joins the top part of the sandal. I think one wear would snap the strap.
    I initially thought it was glue but on further inspection the sandal is definitely faulty.

    Some of the stuff in our M&S was definitely reduced by more than 60% when I popped in yesterday.
    Not sure about online.
    I ordered some trousers that had been £27.50 but £8.00 in the sale so that was more than 60% anyway,
    They were on the rail yesterday at less than £8 but I can't remember the exact price.

    Was in the Guildford store in the afternoon and still promoting 60% off in the window and on the double height racks, although some items had more that 70% off, but (of the items I looked at) the online stock were definitely cheaper. Instore sale stickers were still white not yellow.

    Thanks but not everything reduced for more than 60% yet. That is why I want to know about next markdowns.

    The sale has finished online. Does anyone know whether it is still continuing in store?
