How to Shop at Marks and Spencer, According to an Insider

Everyone needs a little helping hand in the area of shopping every now and then (yep, even fashion editors), whether it’s hunting down an outfit for a winter wedding or navigating the oversaturated world of designer bags. When it comes to shopping the high street, however, you may feel like you’re in no need of expert intel, but in our experience, it’s only the most skilled and discerning shoppers who can find those wardrobe gems that stand the test of time, regardless of price. This is where Rachel Sullivan, head of content at Marks and Spencer comes in.

We’ve followed Rachel since she started up her Marks and Spencer Insider account back in September 2018. Her mission? “To find and bring you the brand’s most stylish, standout, startlingly brilliant finds on a daily basis.” We’ve loved her practical and down-to-earth approach to style that combines comfort and wearability with just the right amount of on-trend appeal. She has her finger on the pulse when it comes to knowing what M&S pieces are going to sell out and which trends to look out for in-store. Naturally, we didn’t want to keep this secret to ourselves, so we decided to get some insider know-how from the woman herself.
