    M&S sale preview even beer & wine half price 2nd Jul 18 at 4:56 PM
    I!!!8217;ve just read on another site that the sales preview starts this evening for M&S sparks customers. I thought I!!!8217;d post this on here just in case you don!!!8217;t look on other bargain sites.

    I don!!!8217;t have a link yet, sorry.

    I bought a top and handbag.

    Strangely some items were already discounted at 9am this morning, no banners or notice just said sparks preview at half price on the items page, couldn't find many items though.

    I had the Sparks 'privileged access' link in an email this morning. This year discounts range from 50% downwards - and a lot of stuff looks overpriced.

    I got no preview email! I normally do, not sure what happened, was just wondering if anyone else had no email.

    I didnít get an email either and only knew about it when I read it on here, so thanks to whoever posted it. Most of the things I was interested in are already OOS in my size! Will look in store but donít hold out much hope.

    Went on to the M&S so called privileged Sparks sale site.Already many things had sold out so I assume some people get access before others.

    I put 3 items in my basket after browsing for about an hour and by the time I came to pay, 2 of the items had disappeared from the basket.This happens all the time. Once in the basket the item should remain there for at least an hour to allow further shopping. I have complained but nothing changes.

    If you buy each individual item as and when you see it, then you miss out on free delivery and it is so time consuming. Surely their system can address this?

    I did not buy anything in the end because I was so annoyed at wasting my time on a sunny afternoon!!!!! Not a brilliant sale either.

    You need to save items that you like to your account weeks before the sale starts (there is a saved items feature) then you can just transfer them to your basket 'if' they go into the sale and check-out fast, or use the free pick up at store service and order everything individually, which is what I usually do and go into the store and pick up 8 packages! (although I wont be doing it this sale, as the clothes are not very good)

    Regarding stock levels, I was looking for an item on Monday at 9am which was showing as in stock and at half price a whole day before the preview had begun, but upon going to check-out it said out of stock, the same item was still showing in stock last night but disappeared at check out, so the stock levels are not to be trusted.

    I went into a store today and the aisles of ladies' garments had been rearranged as if in preparation for a sale. I predict the signs will go up overnight.

    Still no email yet... I went onto the website and logged into my sparks account; shows still as priority access but nothing to link me to the sale or to show in the main site what is/isn't in the sale.

    Prediction correct - have just had the email alert through to say that the online and instore sale is now on. Unfortunately I have to agree with a PP that the ladies' fashion this year is weak so please don't get your hopes up in vain.

    ETA: I took a look at the website just to see if my initial assessment was unduly harsh - it was not, most are just hideous (just a handful are ok): https://www.marksandspencer.com/l/offers/sale/womens?facets=20448505,20448506,4294964042,4294964 038&slider_Current_Min=0&slider_Current_Max=140&so rtBy=product.price_from|0

    What I cannot get my head around is how a 5'8" model in a size 8 dress can look stout! It must be the cut.

    It only went down to 60% off on Tuesday evening/ Wed in-store. So I'd think there's another week to wait at least. There was STACKS of womenswear in my local big, out of town store - so it depends how urgently they need the floor space.

    Never seen so much stock in the sale.
    Racks and racks of stuff so closely packed together it was difficult to view anything!

    Any news on the 90% day yet please?

    Some items must have bigger reductions.
    I bought my sister a jumper reduced to £2.49 from £12.50, so 80% off.
    This was in a tiny store though with hardly any sale items.
