Women’s occasionwear was up 45.3% as summer weddings prompted sales, while women’s footwear increased 11.5% and accessories were up 6.4%.

Total sales at the department store increased 3.8% to £83.1m, compared to the same week last year.

Andy Street, managing director at John Lewis, said: “Customers were getting into the swing of summer last week, with evidence that spending time outside and preparing for the height of wedding season were the top trends driving sales.”

He added: “The sunshine forecast for this week will no doubt continue to feed the popularity of The Gardening Society restaurant on the John Lewis Oxford Street rooftop, which attracted 6,000 visitors last week alone.”
