Xmas Sale watch: Marks & Spencer slashes 30% off clothing

Marks & Spencer will slash up to 30% off some clothing from Thursday as part of a range of promotions in the run up to Christmas.

Women’s cashmere will have 30% off, while coats, macs and jewellery will also be discounted by 20%.

M&S is cutting 20% off all men’s Autograph knitwear, casual shirts and jeans, as well as Autograph and Collezione eveningwear suits.

Kidswear has 20% off sleepwear and Autograph baby cashmere.

The retailer has already held two one-day Sales in the last month with discounts across the board of up to 20%, in an attempt to grab consumer spend, the business’ first pre-Christmas promotions in four years

M&S chairman Sir Stuart Rose said: “We know that our customers are feeling the pinch but we all need a bit of sparkle this Christmas. That’s why we’re committed to continue to offer a wide range of promotions to help make the festivities special for everyone.”

There are also price cuts and promotions on homewares, toys and food.

  • I think it is a big mistake introducing 30% off at this next stage of the Thursday promos, pre-Christmas.
    It would be wholly understandable to maintain the 20% Thursday promo, pre-Christmas but the relatively minor amount earned by the extra 10% of some products is not going to have a major, incremental effect on footfall. Also, the message is a bad one to send to the City and the media...panic?
    I would have kept the 20% promos going (a consistent strategy) and have a strategically, ruthless SALE in January...people will still come out for the SALES...that's the time to hit REALLY hard.
    No this smacks of someone loosing their nerve at M&S!

  • They have just opened a Shanghai store on the 2nd Oct. The food shelves have not been restocked since then.Most people are sick of walking in there to see when the new stock is arriving and getting no information
