Thank you OP, I bought the trousers I have had my eye on for the late Spring/Summer. As they were reduced from £34.95 to £13.95 I bought 2 colour ways!

Well done on the weight loss bike. You need new clothes as a reward smile

Oh you buggers!
Have just spent £100 that o don't have, well will have to come out of savings. I am one of those "got a job but ot only just covers childcare" people.
But I have recently lost nearly 3 stone and none of my clothes fit.

Its flattering to order a smaller size eventhough its not true wink

Thank you, plenty smile.

size down though!

They have improved over the last couple of years. Their trousers seem to fit me very well and the jeans seem to last forever.

What is Gap's sizing wrt trousers like please? Is it generous or snug?

LarkinSky Tue 19-Mar-13 17:54:20

I slightly resent the big supermarket-sweep type Gap shops I do during their sales, but as I don't get much chance to do any shopping, let alone in nice shops, it's just so easy and the stuff is usually flattering if not very fashionable.
I love their 'Long and Lean' jeans, but they are never reduced (about £50 normally). However, their dresses and jackets seem well cut for an hourglass figure, their workwear washes well and sizing is always generous.

I have ordered a couple pairs of trousers as it was a very good reduction. Have ordered a few basic t'shirts too. £4 for posting isn't too bad either and it was excellent service last time I ordered from there.

I haven't been able to find a single thing I want from Gap, sale or not, for several years. Glad some of you found things you liked though.

I was like a woman possessed yesterday. How can they afford it??!!

Hand = trousers. F'ing kindle

DanGleebals Tue 19-Mar-13 14:14:19

Was just coming on to post about this! I got myself a pair of skinny mini trousers (chinos) and a green boyfriend cardigan for£24 reduced from £70 grin. They had some great knit wear and hand too, plus some fab cross body bags - real leather in nude, pink and blue. They were less than £30 - kicking myself for not getting one now...

LarkinSky Tue 19-Mar-13 12:45:35

I was too late for dresses in my size (12), only maxis left, but got two nice-looking suit jackets and some fine knits to go underneath. Plus new socks for two quid :-)

LarkinSky Tue 19-Mar-13 12:44:39

Oh god I've just spent €190. They're even offering free international delivery today, which is great. Hopefully - if they all fit - I've just sorted out my back to work wardrobe, as well as a couple of shirts for DH.
Mumsnet costs me so much money!

joliejolie Tue 19-Mar-13 11:55:17

Trousers for £13.98! Well, that's cheaper than H&M or Primark, which is where I often buy my trousers. I'm thinking I really need to go back for more!

Moominsarehippos Tue 19-Mar-13 11:34:28

Tut tut! Only a bargain if you were going to buy at full price anyway (naughty girl).

plentyofsoap Tue 19-Mar-13 08:56:23

Thank you! Now I am also skint.
Good deals though so have I actually saved money? grin

Moominsarehippos Tue 19-Mar-13 08:08:10

Good sale! I am skint and have far too many clothes though.

Some items are up to 60% off including spring dresses, skinny and coloured jeans, scarves, fantastic shoes and bags!! Many are priced at 40% off, others 20%, but there are some great 60% off bargains. It's for a limited time and I was told that the prices go back to normal when it's over.

I picked up a fab little navy and white striped dress, anchor print trousers, two boyfriend shirts, two striped tops and a bag...all for £100!!

Didn't buy any for the kids as my arms were full with stuff for me, me, me. There were some great deals on shorts, tees and coloured jeans, so I may have to go back!

Doesn't look like it's online, so may be in store only.
