    I've bought all of my new summer wardrobe from M&S - here's why you should too

    Marks & Spencer has long served me well for two things: underwear and cashmere, arguably two of its most popular departments. I’d dart into its giant Oxford Street store to stock up (classics are easy to find in-store) or I’d place an order online then collect them the next day while buying my lunch. Over the years I’d only strayed from those two trusty departments a handful of times, to little effect. I’d tried its basic T-shirt line years ago and wasn’t overly impressed, and its footwear alway

    Why the Telegraph's fashion editors are finally buying their shoes from M&S

    ‘Ooh, have you seen M&S’s take on The Row’s white sandals?’ said Krissy Turner, The Telegraph’s Shopping Editor in one of our meetings last week. Most of us hadn’t because, to put it bluntly, M&S isn’t on our priority list of shoe sources. In the past, there’s often been something wrong with its shoes. Clunky seams, cheap finishes… even when its ready-to-wear is peppered with gems, M&S shoes have a fusty, desiccated cloud hanging over them, not helped by the fusty, desiccated displays in store.

    Will M&S's new 'NOOS' fashion strategy save the retailer?

    Marks & Spencer has several of this season’s most covetable summer dresses in store right now - and they’re selling well; the retailer shifted 30,000 Ghost frocks in a single week in April. But trend-led items can be hit and miss for M&S, which reported pre-tax losses of £209.4m last week - its first annual loss in 94 years, and its worst year on record. The struggling clothing department - as well as the impact of Covid - was to blame for this figure, and so chief executive Steve Rowe is embark

    M&S pins future on food as clothing goes out of fashion

    Alexa Chung was supposed to usher in a long-overdue revival at Marks & Spencer. In the run up to London Fashion Week in 2016, the supermodel welcomed celebrity friends David Gandy and Pixie Geldof to a launch party of her debut clothing collection with the 137-year-old brand. The roll-out of Archive by Alexa came just weeks before executive Steve Rowe vowed to shore up M&S's struggling clothing arm, claiming he was "personally committed" to turnaround efforts. But on Wednesday, M&S's clothing an

    Not just any loss, an M&S £200m loss as sales plunge during pandemic

    Marks & Spencer has plunged to its first ever annual loss and warned that it has speeded up plans to quit dozens of British high streets. The country’s best known retailer fell £201.2 million into the red “in a year like no other” as it battled a huge slump in clothing sales during the two long lockdowns and rising costs associated with the pandemic. About 30 locations “which can no longer support a store” will lose their M&S altogether in what will be seen as huge blows to local economies.
