M&S Collection Notch Lapel Oversized Duster Coat
Too little, too late
I missed buying this in September when it first came in to stock online - while I was debating with myself over what colour to buy, the rest of the world made up its mind very quickly. And if I had bought it in the Autumn, I probably would have kept it. I would have got some wear out of it before the weather turned, and before it became a bit of a cliche. I managed to get another one when they came back into stock at the end of October, but it was just too big, too cold and the moment had passed. So, there is a size 8 returned to the St Albans store if you are quick. Lesson - timing is everything, especially with stock control.

I love coats and over the years have purchased many, but I have to say this has to be my favourite in a long time. It is so soft and luxurious and I would have been willing to pay a lot more than the asking price. It is so refreshing to see "pink" as an option instead of the usual grey and blacks. And a choice of pinks ! amazing! I have had both! M&S Top Marks for this one, please start making lots more coats in these candy shades now as you can see how much we love them. :-)

Worst purchase ever!
Ordered this as probably too taken in by all the hype and was so disappointed! Peculiar shade of pink and peculiar feel to fabric. When trying it on, it reminded me of a 'cow gown' my grandad used to do odd jobs in - truly hideous! It is neither a classic or gorgeous!

Pretty coat but shame about the style
I was pleased to find this coat on line the second time of trying, after having been informed it was out of stock. However was very disappointed when trying it on. It was advertised as a 'duster' coat but would have been more suitable as a coat to wear as a maternity garment! Having said all that, I would add that the quality of the material and the softness of its feel were excellent and I could recommend it to anyone who prefers a coat that has a more loose fit.. The price also is very reasonable.
