George at Asda launches £5 office outfit

George at Asda has launched a £5 women's office outfit, just weeks after it introduced a £15 price promotion on men's suits.

The outfit, which comprises a pair of black, boot cut trousers and a white shirt, will be available until February 26 and is designed to help a "cash poor nation", according to the supermarket. The trousers and blouse normally cost £5 each but the grocer is offering the blouse for free with every purchase of the black trousers for the next month.

Asda said that similar outfits from rivals Marks & Spencer, Next and Tesco, sell for £22.50, £28 and £20 respectively.

George brand director Fiona Lambert said: "Office staples can be stylish but they do not have to be expensive. This versatile outfit from George is great for the office, but would work equally well for an evening out, dressed with a stunning piece of statement jewellery and high heels."

  • An amazing deal. Would be good to know which part of the world these "lost leaders" are being produced in and who is paying for the downside of the cost. How transparent is this purchase?

  • Please everyone...read TESCOPLOLY by ANDREW SIMMS. What has occurred in the food industry is going to happen (and is starting already) in the clothing industry. The downside is that the telly types aren't going to save some us with emotive documentaries as there are no cute, fluffy live animals suffering ;and even those pics don't stop the public buying 2 for £5 chickens.
    Please Draapers, wake up to this and follow through with some serious research and print the info.........in a decade you may have little to write about. Just a few fawning articles to keep the bigboys happy.
    PS; I think I was correct...P. Greens Maldive party was the beginning of a new cycle in this industry.

  • Add a stunning piece of statement jewellery and high heels?? Did I really just see that suggestion on a "fashion" website? PLEASE, what sort of minger will you look in that getup, and may I add, why would you own a piece of "statement jewellery" if you buy into the offensive £5 trousers, the two do not match. I have heard it all now, and no matter what you write, I have to believe in the british public, and hope that they too will see sense and not wear the awful £5 outfit made by some poor soul paid a pittence to do so. God Im going to have to go and lie down now, its too much to take in!! Brighton retailer right though... the foodies will get help but we wont.

  • Brighton calling Falkirk (bypassing Drapers because they are in "see nothing, hear nothing, so nothing to worry about mode"; the whole outfit comes into its own in a size 24..............teamed with some hideous plastic shoes (where the little toe pokes out the side) and, boy do they humm after 4 wearings.
