M&S urges the nation to ‘Spend It Well’

M&S Spent It Well (10)How often do you keep things in your wardrobe ‘for best’? I know I certainly do. I have numerous dresses that have been purchased with certain special occasions in mind, that are yet to see the light of day, and that’s why Marks & Spencer recently launched their new ‘Spend It Well’ campaign.

More than just a tagline, M&S are on a mission to make every day special. It’s a call to action encouraging all of us to seize the moment and make every moment special by focusing on the quality experiences, people and things that really matter.

‘Spend It Well’ is about grabbing life with both hands, burning the luxury candles, wearing your best coat, breaking out the best biscuits, saying no to food that doesn’t take you to extraordinary places and never settling for uncomfortable knickers – life is too short, after all!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock recently, I’m sure you’ll have seen the ad by now that is backing the campaign, but if not here it is in all it’s glory…

So what have we got to lose by jumping on board? I think it’s a brilliant campaign and has really made me think about what I purchase and why.

With Summer just around the corner, I’ve already been stalking the M&S website (there are soooooo many pretty threads!) and all of the following are on my hit list to buy and wear, not lurk at the back of my wardrobe gathering dust for a special occasion!


1 // Striped Tie Waist A-Line Midi Skirt, £29.50

2 // Embroidered Sleeve Striped Bardot Top, £25

3 // Pure Cotton Embroidered Smock Swing Dress, £45

4 // Tie Back Flared Sleeve Tunic Dress, £45

What do you think of the ‘Spend it Well’ campaign? Will you be taking heed? Let me know below…

    ‘Yes’ to banishing uncomfortable knickers! Age has really taught me that life is too short for putting up with second best. It’s definitely time to grasp every moment and make the most of what you can affordReplyCancel

    I totally subscribe to this philosophy, I would much rather love the things I wear everyday rather than have special things I never wear.ReplyCancel

    I love this campaign and completely agree – life is too short to be dealing with the little things that we don’t actually want to. Love your picks of clothes too – that pink dress is amazing!ReplyCancel

    This is totally my philosophy! Before I had children, I used to go out a lot more so i’d keep my ‘best’ clothes for going out. Now I wear my nice tops in the day, always wear perfume, burn my Yankee candles etc. No point letting it all gather dust instead! XReplyCancel

    Such a good idea for a campaign, I think we all end up saving things for best, but life is too short not to just enjoy every moment that you can and treat yourself when you can.
