help! am going to a wedding on saturday and have sorted an outfit (black skirt, black top, fishnets, knee length boots and lurvely green jewellery including fab green gen broach(/brooch?!). have now set my heart on green coat, preferably a tweedy one but have had very little luck tracking one down.
found one in debenhams that sort-of fits the bill but in the shop they didn't have my size. could always buy online but in the shop they have an offer of £25 off the £65, which they are not doing online! Can't get to a bigger store between now and saturday so am in a quandry about whther to buy coat in store for extra money (but i'm also losing weight at the moment so the one that's too big will be way too big soon!) or order online and pay extra.
OR does anyone know of any other coats for under £100 that fit the bill and i can buy for sat?
and don't advise me not to wear what i'm wearing - i've set my sad heart on it

der - meant 'buy the one in the shop for less money'...

have already rung and they said online and store sales are completely seperate - it's up to stores to organise their own offers, apparently.

what about anpother coat though?

merrymarthamoo Tue 14-Dec-04 22:18:42

I like it! Agree with coddy - email and say they should match instore price and you are not a happy bunny.
