Shopping for School Uniforms Made Easy
Kids grow, play and get dirty so school uniforms need to be able to withstand the rigours of the school year.
From shirts that repel dirt to trousers that get longer, we’d highly recommend M&S for stylish, comfortable and durable schoolwear. Looking for uniforms that are easy to wear and easy to care for? M&S have such a fab range with some incredible innovations that are about to make your life that little bit less stressful:
Because kids get wet, trousers, skirts, shorts, blazers and coats feature Triple Action Stormwear, which is water repellent, stain repellent and makes washing a breeze. Stormwear+ repels mud and oil, while Stainaway (high performance finish on shirts and polos) helps those inevitable splodges wash away easily so there’s no need to scrub.
2. Soft and cosy
Say goodbye to rough and scratchy jumpers and sweatshirts thanks to Staysoft, a durable softener that keeps clothes soft no matter how many times they’re washed. From the first day of term to the end-of-year photo, Staynew ensures their uniforms remain bright and bobble free, while Colour Stay prevents clothes from fading in the wash.
Keep kids in their clothes for longer with Adjust-A-Cuff. M&S has added an extra 3cm to blazer sleeves and you can adjust the length without a needle and thread. Kids are always growing but with Adjust-A-Hem trousers (hems that you can unpick, alter and press), and the magic of Adjustable Waist they won’t need a new uniform every time they have a growth spurt.
4. One size doesn’t fit all
All kids are different so M&S doesn’t take the ‘one size fits all approach’. We know it’s easier to shop by age, so we make selected items in a wider or slimmer fit, and longer or shorter length, taking the guesswork out of buying schoolwear. Ensure your child’s school uniform fits just right with our Plus Fit (a generous extra 6cm through the chest, waist and hips) and Slim Fit ranges (cut 4cm smaller through the chest, waist and hips).
You can also choose from Longer Length (skirts and trousers that are 4cm longer) and Shorter Length (skirts and trousers that are 4cm shorter) options to match their proportions perfectly. Take the stress out of going back to school and purchase uniforms from the comfort of your own home at marksandspencer.ie. Enjoy free delivery within two days to your nearest store on all orders. M&S also offers standard delivery (3-5 working days) to your home when you spend over €30 and tracked express delivery (2-3 working days) to your home when you spend over €59.
