M&s beauty calendar

(887 Posts)

So I want the fabled beauty calendar but I can't find anything to buy on the m&s website.

I need...
New ankle boots
Dressy tops for evenings out.
But there is nothing I even want to try on!

I have 3 children aged 1-6 but can only find new socks for them.

What can I buy? confused

I think it's tomorrow. Live from midnighthe roughly.

If you like beauty then pixi glow tonic is good as is most Stila make up

I'm getting mine tomorrow, I asked in my local store & they said they had a loading bag full of them!

So, I need to spend £35 to get one.... what should I buy??
Quite like this...

Bay not bag...

The Alexia ankle boots look really nice.

I bought a gorgeous skirt there last week- black lace with a couple of inches of the lace showing under the lining. I think it's rather stylish.

I will be buying bras to get my calendar. I am getting stupidly stressed that I might miss out on it. I really want it. That's capitalism for you! !

Treadlightly Wed 09-Nov-16 13:53:31

I know hoolio! I went in to ask today cos I'm so worried they'll sell out before I get one!
Bras is a good idea
I should really be looking for Xmas presents I suppose

Oh just posted on this blush

Do school uniform items count as fashion? Have my bag ready but can go into store if need be

hooliodancer Wed 09-Nov-16 21:44:06

It says it's sold out! It wasn't even supposed to go on sale till tomorrow. I am bereft.

Anyone know what happens if you return the other stuff you buy?

Bubbinsmakesthree Wed 09-Nov-16 22:40:14

I think people managed to do that last year (buy items then return them, but keep the £35 calendar).

hoolio - I'I still just getting a 'coming soon' link when I search for it.

Currently debating whether to stay up until midnight or rely on it still being in stock first thing tomorrow.

I am buying a bottle of pixi glow tonic and my usual foundation for my spends.

Theonlyoneiknow Wed 09-Nov-16 22:56:07

wondering how it compares to last year's calendar for the extra £10 cost

BumWad Wed 09-Nov-16 22:59:11

I want this too. Might get myself and DS some pyjamas.

Liiinoo Wed 09-Nov-16 23:06:09

I am staying up till midnight. Already have a nice Egyptian cotton sheet in my basket. Which may or may not be returned.

LordRothermereBlackshirtCunt Thu 10-Nov-16 00:05:59

How can it be sold out already? Surely this can't be right?

gaggiagirl Thu 10-Nov-16 00:13:57

It's still saying coming soon on mine. Maybe it won't go live til the morning. I'm haunting the website and app and both are on the go slow.

sherbertdibdab Thu 10-Nov-16 00:14:03

Still getting coming soon anyone else had any luck?

Bobafatt Thu 10-Nov-16 00:19:44

Same here

Cuttysarky Thu 10-Nov-16 00:23:31

Hmmm on their twitter page they are not saying what time but have told a few folk to check before having their breakfast, prob about 6am it's going live but I can't stop checking just in case!!

Bubbinsmakesthree Thu 10-Nov-16 01:52:34

Just checked online as I woke up - am now getting a link to purchase but it is saying it is out of stock. Not sure if that is true or whether it just isn't in stock yet. Will have to look again first thing!

Whynotnowbaby Thu 10-Nov-16 02:25:48

Available now but I had to search it as the link on homepage was broken from my phone

Howaboutthisone Thu 10-Nov-16 02:39:20

Showing as out of stock already sad

sherbertdibdab Thu 10-Nov-16 02:50:35

Gutted, was mid feed with baby. No chance of me getting out to a store tomorrow.

Bubbinsmakesthree Thu 10-Nov-16 02:57:31

I'm hopeful stock isn't showing yet - unless they had tiny numbers online. Searched twitter and all I've seen is people saying it is out of stock, no-one saying they've got one.

sherbertdibdab Thu 10-Nov-16 03:16:51

Ooo fingers crossed they're just gearing up for launch. But LO is cluster feeding tonight so chances are I'll be occupied when the time comes.
