Morning all!

From today until 20th October 2019, you can get up to 40% off selected styles in the Hush mid-season sale! <lusts after the Pelle Wool Coat>

We know just how much lots of you love Hush, so we’ve done the honours and picked out some of your (and our) absolute favourites to help you build that all-important autumn/winter wardrobe.

Ziggy jumper, now £66.75 (was 89)

“The Hush Ziggy jumper has arrived and I love it. It feels lovely, not itchy at all, and very soft.”

Clarissa Satin Skirt, now £20 (was £65)

“This was a bit 'out there' a year or so ago, but is right in trend now.”

Amour Jumper, now £30 (was £79)

“Was just in Waitrose and spotted a lady in the Amour Hush jumper which incidentally I just ordered.”

Phoenix Metallic Stripe Dress, now £45 (was £99)

Pelle Wool Coat, now £80 (was £219)

We’d love to hear what you bought in the comments below. Enjoy grin

Selected styles only. Prices correct at the time of posting. Mumsnet carries some affiliate marketing links, so if you buy something through our posts, we may get a small share of the sale (more details here).

Emperor's new clobber. There was such a hype about them on here (no where else have I ever heard of them) that I ordered a couple of things. Two cheaply made sack like dresses which went back and a tshirt which went to shit after one wash.
Bad luck maybe. But I was in John Lewis earlier and had a look. Some jumpers were already bobbled 😂

We actively seek and delete posts when we think they are brands trying to dupe users into clicking on their links. We may not get 100% but we do put effort into trying to stop brands opening accounts and posting.

For the Swears By email, all of the products are selected based on users' recommendations - any affiliation would be added after the product has been selected.

As a ratio, the majority of links can be affiliated as most brands are part of affiliate programs but this doesn't change our product selection.

Swears By doesn't contain any advertisement so the affiliate fees are good way of keeping the lights on at HQ without filling our mails with advertising.

Hush clothes are better quality than , say, Primark. They are worse than, say, Toast. But individuals are free to choose. No one forces you

@Sooverthemill wow talk about sponsored posts. You defend hush a lot.

Personally I think the issue is bigger than individual brands.

@LauraEMumsnet Thanks for the reply. Does that mean there are no brands currently using the boards starting posts? (And not necessarily with links)

What brands are part of your affiliate programme? Why is this not clear?

Do you not agree this takes away from the objective opinions of other posters that many users saw as your USP?

I'm also kind of concerned you don't see affiliate marketing as a form of advertising!!

Actually I think it's more detrimental to your brand as it weakens your position as voice of the ordinary woman.

@RunningOutOfCharacte I am a human person who buys clothes. Shoot me, they do not pay me! I think it's you who are being slightly over defensive of your position. What the heck does it matter? MNHQ have stated now, having mistakenly not, that the Hush sale thread is sponsored. Do you never ever see any adverts! Click nothing not ever? I'd rather MN made a bit of money through me clicking through a link than by accepting adverts from say the Brexit party or nestle or amazon. I click links on the guardian, red online, all sorts of stuff. MN has to make money or it would fail.

I also love Boden and 80% of my clothes come from there, if they are Reading this id be happy for them to pay me as I buy tons more from there than from hush. I cannot get to a real life shop so am absolutely at in online shopping and the recommendations of others as to what is good out there

@Sooverthemill wow! Hope you get paid a lot.

You just seem to miss the point spectacularly.

Yeah hush is better than primark. But it's a heck of a lot more expensive than primark. I expect better. And it seems I'm not the only one.

You love it. Good for you. Well done. I'm happy for you. But you keep popping up here to defend it which makes you sound a trifle obsessed.

Yeah I know a lot about advertising. I work in it. I know how it works and I also know how detrimental it can be when sites aren't scrupulously clear.

And let's not forget where this started. Mumsnet broke ASA rules with a sponsored ad. I have a right to enquire seeing as how it's fairly basic stuff I shouldn't have to point out.

Sooverthemill Mon 14-Oct-19 15:10:11

I think I'm bored today tbh and you are entertaining me because you are soooo annoyed about people earning money from brands, especially given you work in advertising! I'm really defending MN which needs an income stream to keep going. I would hate to see it go under. I don't care if Hush survives or not. Although I like their t shirts and jeans. It hardly provides much of a service to humanity and if it fell then someone else would pop up to replace it. Unlike MN. After all, we wouldn't be happy on Netmums would we?

RunningOutOfCharacte Mon 14-Oct-19 15:29:25

@Sooverthemill glad to entertain you!

Yeah I just like to see people play by the rules. And if mumsnet can't abide by ASA regulations maybe I should report them. Wasn't going to mind. But your constant waffling has pushed me over the edge.

Your backtracking over hush is pretty amazing. If I were them I'd be asking for my money back.
