    M&S Sale 20th Jun 19 at 11:43 AM
    Starts Friday 28th June

    Official MoneySavingExpert insert Tue 16 Jul:

    If you go online to M&S or into a store (find your nearest), you can get up to 70% off in its sale, while stocks last. Delivery's £3.50 or free if you're spending £50 or more. You can also click and collect in store for free.

    As it's a sale, stock is likely to be limited, so go quick if there's something you're after. See our Summer Sales round-up for other sales that are on now.

    Big thanks to marbella for the spot!

    Yeah, I went at 3pm and practically everything had gone. Assistants said that people had been coming in this morning and literally loading up trolleys and leaving with a receipt as long as their arm!

    However, I managed to get half a dozen items for my LO - luckily a few bits were left in his size and most were 89p each, inc shoes. I also got 2 pairs of trousers for me (worth looking around the store and in other departments, because I found a pair of jeans that had been abandoned on a rail in the Men's Dept). Also got a couple of items for my OH. However it was all either tiny or massive sizes left in every department on the whole.

    I wish I had gone this morning, but would have needed sharp elbows by the sounds of it! No doubt there won't be a thing left by the end of tomorrow. Got 11 items for £23.99 - not bad!

    I purchased some cheeky cashmere jumpers reduced to £7 ish which ill save for Christmas. This woman and her family had big trolleys each and had 10 handbags all the same which i thought was greedy.

    I heard that people were queuing up outside before 8 am.

    And, yes, I also heard several women complaining - and, sadly, being quite unpleasant about it.

I felt sorry for the staff today. Hope everyone found a bargain at least.

    My husband (aka the reason why I didn't get into store until 9 am ) sauntered down clutching 4 packs of underpants. He is very p!eased with them, even if they are all a size too big.....

    I've occasionally bought patterned bikini bottoms and worn them with a plain top in the colour of the bottoms - and vice versa - if the price is right.

    I saw a pair of lovely black bikini bottoms with bird of paradise plants on that would have been great with a plain black bikini top I have but sadly not in my size.

    I'm selling a bikini that I've had for several years but never worn and was checking for pricing guidelines.
    Judging by the number of odd bikini tops and bikini bottoms that had all been listed yesterday that I'd definitely seen on the M&S sale rail over the last week or so, lots of people had bought to sell on eBay.

    Their money, their choice.
    I was just offering up a suggestion why someone would have 10 handbags all the same.

    I couldn't find any sale items in Durham Arnison Centre today. I assumed they must have already sold everything.

    Might be worth heading to a smaller store. Almost 1 week post 90% sale starting and I was very surprised to spy a rail in a smaller town centre store today. Got 2x 7 packs of Men's socks for £1.99 a pop and a children's Paw Patrol lunch box cool bag for £1.99.

    There was lots of Men's underwear, Men's jackets, Men's stormwear trousers £5.99 ea, ladies blouses, bras, children's toys and books, bags and purses, some children's clothing - although a lady got most of that before I got a look in. And more I can't remember!
