Trusty Marks & Spencer – the much-loved high street store has closed a few stores recently, and we can't help but reminisce about the many afternoons we've spent perusing the clothing aisles for the latest must-have leopard-print dress (yes - you know the one), picking up a Percy Pig packet or three, or awkwardly getting fitted for undergarments during those dreaded teenage years.
Marks & Spencer, please don't go away....
1. The homeware is simply stunning
And we want it all! The retailer has taken inspiration directly from those who matter most - the faithful M&S customer.
2. The cashmere and merino wool jumpers
We love a good yarn! And no where does it quite as good (and affordable) as M&S.
3. Your favourite sweet
You knew this was coming! Drumroll, please... it can only be Percy Pig and friends. They even have a vegetarian version for all to enjoy. Yes - we can't get enough of these gummy sweets. In fact, I am eating some as I type.
4. Its unrivalled quality
Ok, so it's not cheap, but you get what you pay for with M&S. And boy, do they deliver!
5. They love seasonal holidays as much as we do!
One word: CHOCOLATE! Their seasonal timings might be off, but we can always be tempted by an abundance of chocolate – all 365 days of the year.
6. M&S adverts celebrate women
That is women of all shapes, sizes, ages and ethnicities. Can I get an Amen?
7. The free next-day store collection
Because who really wants to wait a whole week for their order? Not me!
8. The Dine in for Two offer!
The dine-in offer means you can bag a main, side and dessert all for a tenner. Steaks, sea bass fillets, lasagne al forno, roasting vegetables and chocolate profiteroles – as well as the popular free bottle of wine. What more could you possibly want for the bargain price of £10?
