The M&S Rainbow Sale is offering new season buys for less than half the price

Marks & Spencer stores are currently open, but with only a limited amount of floor space, most of which is dedicated the food halls. So the savvy team at the high street stalwart have come up with a clever idea to get us back and browsing their fashion lines from the comfort of our homes: the M&S Rainbow Sale.

Running both on the website and in shops where clothing is still available, the initiative gives you the chance to snap up some of the unsold spring summer stock from M&S that’s been left on the rails as our retail habits change as a result of the pandemic, and the discounts are seriously incredible. Absolutely everything included has at least 50 per cent off, with many items selling for less than half of their RRP.

M&S Rainbow sale

From relaxed midi dresses to staple denim and even swimwear, hundreds of items have had their prices slashed across the womenswear, menswear, kids ranges and lingerie departments. And as for where the ‘rainbow’ comes from? M&S has put a charitable spin on its already generous offer, and will be donating 10 per cent of the purchase price of all Rainbow Sale items to NHS Charities Together.

If there’s a better way to get your style fix right now, we haven’t found it yet. Here’s our pick of some of the best bits to add to your basket – although you’ll have to move quickly, as multiple sizes are already flying out of stock.
