Marks and Spencer launches 50% off sale ahead of reopening clothes and homeware stores

MARKS and Spencer has launched a 50 per cent off sale in aim of raising money for the NHS.

The sale, called the Rainbow Sale, sees thousands of items of womenswear, menswear, children’s clothes and lingerie slashed by half.

M&S will then donate 10% of the purchase price, excluding VAT, of all Rainbow Sale items to NHS Charities Together.

It is one of many sales the store has running at the moment. Others include up to 20 per cent off certain womenswear items, 30 per cent off lingerie and 20 per cent off furniture when you spend £999.

The clothing shop hasn’t said how long the sale will run for.

We’ve asked M&S if it will continue when its stores reopen after the coronavirus outbreak and when it will finish online and we will update this article when we hear back.

The sale items can only be sent with a standard delivery, which costs £3.50 or is free when you spend £50 or over.

You should make sure you tell M&S if you're self-isolating, and think carefully before ordering non-essentials if you're struggling financially.

Of course, just because something is in the sale that doesn't make it a good deal so always compare prices elsewhere first.

If you're wondering how to compare prices, PriceSpy logs the history of how much something costs.

It uses data from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets.
