Earlier this month, This Morning host Holly Willoughby revealed that she’s partnered with high street store Marks & Spencer as their new brand ambassador – and now the 20-piece autumn edit is finally available to shop.
The top prediction for the fast-selling piece was a lovely leopard print dress, modelled by Holly herself at a press preview for the range. Not only does it hit this season’s must have animal print trend, M&S dresses are loved by women across the country for their flattering fits and affordable price points – at £49.50, this one has predictably sold out in several sizes (although the brand is promising more stock arriving on site shortly).
Other highlights include a £69 hot pink coat of dreams (Holly says: ‘I love that it’s not too heavy. It’s that perfect in-between jacket and coat for layering’) and a £35 faux leather ring detail bag in a choice of shades (autumnal wine, or jewel toned teal).
‘Got some Monday morning news to share with you…,’ Holly, 37, wrote back when the news of the collaboration first broke. ‘@marksandspencer have always been part of my family and now they have asked me to be part of theirs. Super proud to be a M&S brand ambassador.’
‘I’m so excited for this. You have such an iconic style @hollywilloughby’ said one happy commenter at the time, followed by another who posted: ‘I have worked for M&S for 21 years & follow your style every day- this is the best news ever. Perfect pairing- can’t wait to get my hands on the range!’
In an official statement from the brand, Marks & Spencer added: ‘Holly has been a long-standing fan of Marks & Spencer and has emerged as a style influencer alongside her extensive television career. Holly has the unique ability to generate excitement with her sartorial choices and this curation brings Holly’s much-loved style directly to the Marks & Spencer customer.’
