Anyone know when it's on sale? Everywhere says November but website just says coming soon, aargh!

73dexter Sun 01-Nov-15 20:33:42

I would email them and ask.

73dexter Sun 01-Nov-15 20:33:56

Or tweet.

I emailed and instant messaged. They aren't letting anything slip- just said ' in November'. You have to spend £20 on beauty to be able to buy the calendar for £25 though.

73dexter Sun 01-Nov-15 20:54:38

Why do they have to make such a big deal out of these things? I suppose it is a good marketing ploy to get people to spend £££ to get their calendar.

Thanks Maugrim, might just huff & not get one-already bought an l'occitane one so shouldnt really anyway.....

It's on the website but priced at £200!

Caroline Hirons latest vlog update said November 17th. it costs £25 with a £25 purchase, and the contents are worth £200. one of the boxes does reveal a small bottle of Glow Tonic. hope this helps smile

It's on the website at £200. Where is the magic £25 calendar??.

If the £25 offer starts later in the month these are going to sell out in a nanosecond, aren't they?

73dexter Tue 03-Nov-15 09:32:41

Do they have to offer it at the ridiculous £200 price for 2 weeks before they can reduce it or something like that?

fredabear Tue 03-Nov-15 16:37:07

Its not on the website at £200, its shown as being worth £200+

homebythesea Tue 03-Nov-15 17:10:09

Oh but it is sad

fredabear Tue 03-Nov-15 18:14:06

how odd to have it as 'coming soon' on one page and available to buy on another - and who one earth would pay £200 for it???!!

73dexter Wed 04-Nov-15 10:33:28

It is 'no longer available' at the moment.

evelynj Tue 17-Nov-15 00:36:34

It's online now-go to m&s and search advent to add with £25 beauty (men's stuff counts)

Apparently there's not many of them & I've just bought 2!

fredabear Tue 17-Nov-15 05:29:09

Just got mine, had 20% off beauty with my sparks card and got 3 for 2 on autograph make up grin

MeMyElfandI Tue 17-Nov-15 07:36:32

Thanks for the heads up. Just ordered mine now. Been a bit down in the dumps so this should be a good pick me up for December. Now I have to make sure I don't buy a posh choccie one as well. smile

homebythesea Tue 17-Nov-15 07:37:42

Got mine- along with a few sticking fillers! Slightly alarming when you check out as at first glance it still appears as £200, but in the small print they apply a £175 "saving"

GoneAndDone Tue 17-Nov-15 08:43:00

Got mine as well, with the other £25 spent on things I use anyway (Nails Inc top coat, Bourjois powder).

Didn't have a beauty offer as a Sparks member, though.

trixymalixy Tue 17-Nov-15 08:45:48

Got mine! I've never had a beauty advent calendar before so quite excited. It seems good value compared to others.

MuchasSmoochas Tue 17-Nov-15 09:33:29

Thanks for the tip off my friends! Just treated myself.

HoneywithLemon Tue 17-Nov-15 12:42:49

Balls. Looks like they've all gone. I only checked yesterday as well sad Should've checked mumsnet....

AllTalkNo Tue 17-Nov-15 13:36:28

I just searched 'advent' in the the search box and it came up. Perhaps they've removed it from the front page as its low stock.

trixymalixy Tue 17-Nov-15 13:46:55

looks like it's still in stock?
