Named in celebration of the colourful symbol that has come to represent so much to customers during this unprecedented time, M&S will donate 10% of the purchase price, excluding VAT, of all Rainbow sale items to NHS Charities Together 

Customers can shop online at, on the M&S app and in store. Customers shopping the Rainbow sale can opt for either contactless delivery to home or free collection from store – where to make it easier for customers, collection points have been temporarily moved next to the Foodhall. Customers will also be able to pick up bargains from a small selection of Rainbow sale items when visiting their local store – where all the social distancing and extra hygiene measures are in place to help keep them well whilst they shop.

The sale will include all clothing departments – womenswear & lingerie, menswear and kidswear, with at least 50% off all items.  This is the latest offer from M&S as the retailer responds to customers wanting better value than ever. M&S has been running popular ‘deals of the day’ online over the past few weeks, with offers such as buy one get one free on men’s and women’s essentials and 20% off home items, as well as ongoing deals such as 3 for 2 on kidswear.

Starting with selected items and growing over the coming weeks, the first product drop includes a great range of women’s dresses (example pictured was £39.50, now £15).

The Rainbow sale builds on M&S’s efforts to help the NHS – including the creation of its fastest-ever selling T-shirt, designed to celebrate #ClapForOurCarers.

Ellie Orton, CEO, NHS Charities Together said, “During this time the rainbow has become a symbol of hope and I want to say a big thank you to M&S and all their colleagues and customers for supporting our appeal with the Rainbow Sale, in addition to the other activity they’ve done. The money raised from this sale will be used by NHS charities to provide vital support to staff, volunteers and patients.”

Retailers and suppliers have come together to support the NHS throughout the crisis, including providing vital PPE supplies.
