the famous owl dress is back with 25% off !!! Hurry before it sells out again !!

Buddhastic Wed 24-Oct-12 08:30:06

It's sold out again

Buddhastic Wed 24-Oct-12 08:35:46

No it's first Google must have gone to old Page??? Anyway, it's here Owl dress

RamblingRosa Wed 24-Oct-12 08:51:53

Hmm, I quite like. Why "famous"? Is it an MN favourite? And I can't see the 25% off. Is there a code?

MackerelOfFact Wed 24-Oct-12 09:08:46

Surely those are three words that should never go together?! <Hasn't seen the dress and is quite unfashionable>

MrsRogerSterling Wed 24-Oct-12 11:15:25

How do you get 25% off?

Northernlurkerisbehindyouboo Wed 24-Oct-12 11:18:53

I don't understand why that dress is so popular. I think it's horrible.

regnamechange Wed 24-Oct-12 11:23:43

Yes is there a code?

regnamechange Wed 24-Oct-12 11:23:57

Shame it's not navy?

CointreauVersial Wed 24-Oct-12 13:09:42

It's quite sweet with opaques and ankle boots, I think.

25% off, you say?

<sits on hands>

bishboschone Wed 24-Oct-12 13:19:04

How do you get the 25% off ? I really like it. I'm size 8 hourglass and that shape would be perfect for me . I can never find dresses with a waist!! Will wear with biker boots and leather jacket !

CointreauVersial Wed 24-Oct-12 13:32:41

C'mon, OP, what's this discount of which you speak?

bishboschone Wed 24-Oct-12 15:04:34

It says 15% off on the page but doesn't say how to get it sad ( stamps feet)

Kopparbergkate Wed 24-Oct-12 15:47:07

I can't even see 15%, definitely not 25%... would definitely buy at 25% off :-)

bishboschone Wed 24-Oct-12 15:56:36

Oh I meant 25% stupid fingers!

dexter73 Wed 24-Oct-12 16:00:45

This morning there was a red bar next to it saying '25% off - online exclusive' but this has gone now. It is a really nice dress. I bought one for a MNer who couldn't get hold of it during the summer and the fabric felt very nice and looked like it would be very flattering. I'm sure it was navy but maybe now thay have made it in black.

bishboschone Wed 24-Oct-12 16:14:00

I just called them . He says its a glitch . Someone is going to call me back to see if they will honour it !!

WeightyKaty Wed 24-Oct-12 16:22:38

Any views on how it would look on an hourglass 5'9 in a 14? maybe a bit short?

bishboschone Wed 24-Oct-12 16:26:12

Right , if you call them they will sort out the discount for you . I just got a call back and they have ordered it for me with store pick up .

bishboschone Wed 24-Oct-12 16:27:02

I'm hourglass and it will suit me . Just wear leggings or thick tights .

CointreauVersial Wed 24-Oct-12 18:11:53

Right, I might just have to get on the phone. I had this discount problem once before with M&S, when I bought a sofa - by the time I got to checkout it was £400 more expensive!

BikeRunSki Wed 24-Oct-12 18:16:21

Katy the model is 5'9" if that helps you judge how it'll look on you (I am 5'8" 14 hourglass).

bishboschone Wed 24-Oct-12 18:22:47

Yeah he said something like we will put it through for £35 and refund you the 25% . Ill check my card before I collect it and make sure it's done . I ordered the 8 as I'm normally 8 and I think marks is on the big side . I'm hoping it willl be perfect for hourglasses. I have found before with these dresses that the hem is too tight for comfortable walking . ( am large of thigh though ) .. Will report back Friday if anyone is interested smile

dexter73 Wed 24-Oct-12 18:25:00

Just to mention - when the dress was previously on the site the reviews said the dress was quite tight around the waist so sizing up was recommended. As this is a new batch this might not apply but I thought I would bring it up.

bishboschone Wed 24-Oct-12 18:32:26

Thanks dexter . My waist is small so I should be ok .. It's my bum and boobs I need to worry about!! wink... I figured I could always get them to order me a ten as there are loads in stock . ( hopefully wont sell out because its been on mumsnet!!! )
