Items from £1.00. Think it is online only though, def worth a look. Cheers

Is there no one interested in saving money on the dreaded school uniform.

Nothing in the right colours. Organised for this year, was going to be really organised for the spring.

Ah well.

MaggsS Tue 02-Sep-08 11:15:58

Had a look and got a couple of bits. Thanks
Only thing I find with M&S is you don't always get what you ordered

I started another thread on this earlier. Got a few bargains smile

MarsLady Tue 02-Sep-08 11:30:36

Thank you! Any codes available? I've put a lot in my basket! grin

WendyWeber Tue 02-Sep-08 11:41:05

Thank you, singyswife! I have just ordered 5 pairs of trousers, 3 of them cotton, & 6 cotton shirts for DS2 (who is 15 & nearly 6')and the whole lot came to only £27.50 smile

lovely, says you get free postage over 15 quid but ive been charged. grump

WendyWeber Tue 02-Sep-08 12:07:59

It depends what you buy, uc. I was charged £3.50 & it wouldn't accept the code the first time I placed an order so I placed another. When you get to the page with the order details you then have to click on a button that says separate deliveries or something? It will list each item separately, & you have to click on the next-day option for each, & then put your code in...but of my 3 different items only 2 had that as an option, so I'm getting them tomorrow but still having to pay £3.50 for standard delivery for the 3rd item which will be up to 5 days hmm

Still a bargain though grin

WendyWeber Tue 02-Sep-08 12:08:23

(NB I then cancelled the first order!!!)

MamaG Tue 02-Sep-08 12:38:03

Thanks a lot for this singy, I just ordered lots of bits for hte DC - I'd only got DS two pairs of trousers, so got a bargainous 2 pairs for £3 for both!

Bought DD a schoolbag for £12 on Saturday from M&YS - its in the sale at £5 so I've ordered it again and will go back with my £12 receipt grin

If you spend £15 on schoolwear, you get free delivery (if the code doesn't work, place your order and ring customer services - they told me that its being a bit hit and miss but they take the charge off immediately)

MamaG Tue 02-Sep-08 12:39:15

Just read messages below mine - ring customer services, they should take it off

Sherbert37 Tue 02-Sep-08 12:48:10

Wow thanks for this. I have just bought 14 pairs of trousers for children age 12 - 16!! For £35 including delivery!! Boys 2 pack trousers for £3, all sizes in black.

mrswotzisnotin Tue 02-Sep-08 12:48:37

Thanks - just did an order
and thought this girls hooded top was good for a
only £2

MarsLady Tue 02-Sep-08 12:53:39

I called and they took the delivery charge off immediately! smile

WendyWeber Tue 02-Sep-08 13:10:50

I just got mine taken off as well smile

(Still have to wait for delivery though...)

mrswotzisnotin Tue 02-Sep-08 13:12:46

Mars, snap I have just done the same. The lady I spoke to said she'd had a few calls about it and was very cheerful and funny! I wonder who else she had spoken to? (she had a scottish accent and her name began with M?) grin

MarsLady Tue 02-Sep-08 13:28:09

I had a lovely young woman but didn't catch her name. She said "Is it about the schoolwear?" grin

mrswotzisnotin Tue 02-Sep-08 13:40:11

I had a good long chat, I couldn't get her off the phone!
I AM BUSY YOU KNOW wink or should be at least

Wags Tue 02-Sep-08 14:22:34

<dull thud as Wags slides under her desk in frustration>. ARRRGGGHHH, just spent half hour doing an order. Couldn't get the discount so did what WendyWeber suggested. Great, could order 4th Sept as delivery date (only next day before 12pm). When I then entered the discount code it took the money off but said the delivery dates were changed. So went back in, only 11th Sept onwards available, but if I selected standard delivery it would be sent on 9th Sept. So rang very unhelpful man (where was the lovely lady you all got) who said it was probably because things were out of stock. I assured him that it said everything was in stock. So he then went through individually and first 3 things were out of stock. So in the end I told him not to bother. Half hour of lunchtime wasted. Oh well grin

mrswotzisnotin Tue 02-Sep-08 15:59:20

lovely helpful lady was probably at lunch grin

WendyWeber Wed 03-Sep-08 10:52:53

My next-day stuff has arrived already!!! grin

Am slightly hmm because I ordered 16" collar shirts & they've sent age 16 instead. They are OK atm, but the chest is 2" smaller (37 rather than 39) so DS2 will outgrow them quicker, but at £1.50 per shirt it would be churlish to complain (and anyway they've sold out of the larger sizes!)

Surfermum Wed 03-Sep-08 10:55:13

Thank you singyswife for the tip! I managed to get a pinafore for dd that I had been desperately searching for and some other bits.

And I too phoned and got the delivery charge taken off.

singyswife Wed 03-Sep-08 13:14:11

Glad to be of service!!!!!!!!!
