Marks & Spencer’s lilac coat is quickly becoming the buy of the season

Marks and Spencer’s Per Una range has really been upping its game lately, with a number of winter pieces making the rounds on Instagram. And the latest buy to catch the social media set’s eye is this beautiful lilac coat, which will put a spring in your autumnal step.

Posted on the Instagram account of Zeena Shah, a stylist and influencer, the coat in question was paired with a chunky high neck knit, floral skirt, and black walking boots.

Speaking to HELLO!, Zeena explained why she had taken a liking to the coat in question:

‘I just love the lilac twist on a classic tweed adding some colour for the autumn,’ she said. ‘I love wearing colour especially during the cold months and for me, a colourful classic coat is definitely a winner. It’s a really flattering cut too and has deep pockets so will be worn for years to come.’

Wool Cocoon Coat, £129, Marks & Spencer

The cocoon coat comes in an impressive array of sizes, from a size 6 through to a size 24, and costs a mid-range £129. It is described as having ‘a laid-back shape that’s enhanced by notched lapels and a single button fastening,’ and is made from a mix of wool, polyester, acrylic and polyamide. It’s currently available online and in store, but has sold out in a size 6 online.

The lilac number will look great with everything from black jeans to patterned midi skirts, along with dresses and tights.


This is not the first time we’ve seen M&S dabble with purple outerwear; last year they were selling a brushed wool bright purple coat that was seen on the likes of blogger Erica Davies and Vogue Williams. The coat was priced at £89, and quickly became a social media favourite.

Better snap this one up quick before it becomes a sell out!
