Hiya, Happy Christmas Eve.

I've been given £150 in m&s vouchers, yay!

It's not a shop I usually go in so after any recomemdations that you have, please.

I'm early 40s, s10-12, work FT in an office. Could def do with a pair of skinny/slim jeans if they're any good?

The jeggings are good. Cashmere can be good but I find the cut of m and s jumpers rarely works on me. Some people rave about the beauty stuff.

BrendaandEddie Fri 25-Dec-15 08:23:53

Yes I agree about cut this year

Roygrace Fri 25-Dec-15 08:37:09

Pixi beauty stuff

Their undwear range is really nice (or you could spend it on a really nice food shop!!)

Unrelated shop, but kind of related - I spent my £100 sainsburys voucher on petrol blush

VulcanWoman Fri 25-Dec-15 08:43:52

I'd just go with the food.

I don't really like their clothes

I'd buy ds a new bed with that amount of m&s vouchers.

I second their jeggings. The 5 pocket black ones are ace. I'm a 10/12 and buy the 10s. They wash brilliantly and when they do eventually fade I bung them in the machine with Dylon velvet black and they're new again. And only £22.

Haven't tried it myself, but people rave about the Pixi skincare range.

polyhymnia Fri 25-Dec-15 09:27:55

I'd look at the cashmere range.

BrendaandEddie Fri 25-Dec-15 09:28:13

I didnt like the jeggings - too high waisted

ThroughThickAndThin01 Fri 25-Dec-15 09:29:54

I love the jeggings, they fit me perfectly.

MissBattleaxe Fri 25-Dec-15 09:46:29

The perfume section is selling really great stuff right now: Fragonard, Roger et Gallet, Shay and Blue.. treat yourself!

Unless you want a decade's worth of thermal foundationing.

Merry Christmas!

I have their Autograph skinny black jeans and they are they business. I like the jeggings in proper denim, but the black ones have gone rubbish. The Autograph ones are excellent.
And a dressing gown.

I got vouchers too. I've seen a swingy black jersey work dress that can be dressed up or down, hang on I'll look for a pic....

planter Fri 25-Dec-15 14:11:27

Here we go

I also get M&S vouchers every year. I always buy homeware because the clothes are pretty shocking. Bought kids new bedding and pillows with some of my £150. Probably spend the rest on food.

thelaundryfairy Fri 25-Dec-15 20:17:42

I like the Autograph bras, also their black opaque tights.

Naoko Fri 25-Dec-15 20:20:16

I dislike their clothes and bras, but they do really comfy boots and some are very nice too. Maybe have a look at the footwear?

Lavent Fri 25-Dec-15 20:25:50

Tights / socks
Jeggings (I have a pair of the Roma ones and they're fab)

I love M&S blush

tippytap Fri 25-Dec-15 22:14:41

Thanks for all the suggestions, can't wait to take a look

RedRosie Sat 26-Dec-15 13:15:18

Are the towels any good? I have a voucher and actually think the M&S clothes have got better in the past year ... But, I have a dream of replacing all our old tatty towels with lovely new ones. Any advice?

Most m&s have started selling higher end beauty brands, REN, Pixi, etc so worth a look if the clothing doesn't take your fancy.
