I know its always been on the expensive side but I am sure they have never charged over £100 for a jersey wrap dress before. Whats going on? Anyone else as shocked at new autumn prices?

My theory is that they know everyone waits for an offer now, and run offers/discount constantly, so start RRP high. Kids stuff still reasonable IMO with an offer code, apart from £50 for a 3-4y boys coat (ridiculous).

I agree. I saw the new stuff this morning and it is so expensive.

I'm waiting for my catalogue as I find it easier to browse than the website.

Cherry, perhaps your right. I just don't know how they expect to be competitive at those prices. I think this is the first sale in years they have had that 1 month on still has so much stock left. Do they not realise there is a recession?

Spooky, I'm just off the site and had the exact same thought. £119 for the rainy day mac?? I'm fairly sure this was £89 or similar in the past few years. Thats a HUGE price hike. Big mistake I reckon

I wish they would charge more regular prices and have fewer discount codes. There is no point buying from them without a code, since there always seems to be one floating about, but Johnnie rarely sends me a code so I have to go hunting for it. Handily someone has usually started a thread for it on here, but it does make shopping from Boden more complicated than it should be.

Maybe I shouldn't be complaining - sometimes it's good for my bank balance because by the time I've found a code, I've changed my mind about the purchase!

Does anyone have a 15% code please? - am after some stuff for my DD.

yes, rainy day mac was £89 2 years ago (not sure what it was last year)

haven't seen the catalogue yet, but if the prices are going up by that much i'm unliekly to buy anything, even with a 15% off or whatever

do they think we're stupid?
