Including THAT pink coat
We don't know about you, but we just love taking a walk down fashion memory lane - including remembering all those Zara items we bought over the years (a LOT).
And it doesn't get much more nostalgic than good old M&S, the epitome of British everything. Of course we all remember that pink duster coat of 2013, that had us constantly refreshing the site in the hope it would get re-stocked. M&S, we blame you for our RSI, by the way.
But do you remember all these other popular M&S items? Scroll down and let us know...
M&S hummingbird dress, April 2012
After Denise Van Outen wore this pretty tea dress, it sold out within two weeks.
M&S Limited Collection nude courts, September 2012
You can blame Kate Middleton (again) for this one. After the Duchess of Cambridge wore her signature L.K. Bennett ones, an M&S ad featuring similar courts aired on TV, resulting in on one pair being bought every two minutes.
M&S pink coat, September 2013
The infamous pink duster coat was the hottest high street must-have of the season and was credited with massively boosting M&S sales.
M&S beige coat, September 2014
While this colour block coat wasn’t quite as popular as its pink predecessor, it was still a hit.
M&S stork print bomber, September 2014
Kate isn’t the only one with the power of making a high street item sell out. Baking guru Mary Berry wore this cool jacket on the Bake Off, and it instantly sold out. Boom.
M&S suede skirt, April 2015
The M&S suede skirt got everyone talking before it even hit the shelves, thanks to fashion insiders like Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung, who were papped wearing it at events. The 70s style had a hint of Prada about it, at a much lower price tag.
M&S suede trench, August 2015
Following on from the success of the suede skirt, the trench version flew off the shelves, and we can see why.
M&S Archive by Alexa Harry blouse, April 2016
When Alexa Chung announced her collaboration with M&S on a curated line based on its archives, it was just a matter of time before it sold out. This Harry blouse didn’t disappoint.
M&S flute sleeve jumper, November 2016
You had to be quick with this jumper, which came in a dusty pink and grey. It was gone in a flash, no doubt thanks to its fashion blogger must-have status.
M&S Pom Pom mules, November 2016
You were lucky if you got your hands on these mules, as virtually everyone on Instagram was wearing them. Although they came in black too, the red ones was the most popular.
M&S Lace Shift dress, November 2016
Thanks to its flattering design, this delicate lace dress was a hit during the 2016 party season.
