Wearable technology also performed strongly, up 352% compared to 2015, as shoppers invested in products to help “healthy lifestyles”.

Fashion sales edged up 2.2% for the week, while total sales were up 4% to £73.1m.

Simon Russell, retail operations development director at John Lewis, said: “Continuing on from previous weeks, the weather played its part in influencing when our customers were shopping and what they were buying.
