Advantages Great choice, great staff
Disadvantages Price on some things (Not all though lol)
I didn't know what to do a review on today so I've decided to write a couple of reviews on things that I've used today, in this case a place I've been to!Today I had to go Marks and Spencer's with my Step-Dad.
My family have always been a Mark's fan. My mother still calls it Marks and Sparks!We don't shop there all the time but my Mum, like a lot of women I've met in her age group have their 'favourite things' from there.
When I was a kid we had a loaf of onion bread on a Saturday with their cheesy coleslaw, then we moved on to their vegetable pasties then we went through a cheese and leek pie phase, and now we always have their Christmas cake and Christmas puds lolWhen I was a kid my Mum would always buy my knickers from their and cos they washed and kept so nice I never seemed to have new ones.
Even to this day every Christmas she'll get me some Florytyna perfume!Anyhow my local store is fairly new and it's huge (in Coventry).
Lots and lots of big changing rooms with nice large mirrors and room to swing a cat in and a help button to get a member of staff who do actually come when called!
Lots of staff milling about, all checkouts in my local store are usually on duty so not so large queues like in a lot of other stores I do go into which makes a really great postive here.The shoe section has plenty of sizes AND half sized shoes which is great for us awkward women lol and plenty of seats to sit and try them on instead of hopping about like a mad thing and trying to stop people tripping over your bags at the same time!
The clothes! Well I love Per Una!
I don't know a woman who doesn't to be fair.
Classic clothing that doesn't go out of fashion.
The emphasis here is on effortless style.
My local store also sells Autograph and the Limited Collection range which has some great pieces too.I know from when I lived in London that Mark's do Bridal Ware, plus sizes, tall, petite and maternity but they don't do any of this in the stores I go to but then I don't need them.
The undies of course are as lovely as ever.
They're never going be ones for outrageous stuff that is in your face provocative , preferring classic , sexy and expensive looking pieces alongside their trusted favourites and yes they still do thermals!!!!
