The retailer is also offering 20% off school uniforms for early shoppers.

We took a look at what other retailers are currently offering for school uniforms and found some comparisons.
Unfortunately, we can’t include the Morrisons, Lidl and Aldi as they don’t have any school uniforms online at the moment.
We’ve checked out the price of a green plaid schoolgirl dress currently available at Marks and Spencer from £9.
Sainsbury’s has a similar dress from £5.50, John Lewis from £9, Matalan from £8 and Asda has a two-pocket plaid dress from £10.
Depending on the size of the item, the price will vary, and different retailers also offer different multi-pack sizes.
We also reviewed a pack of 2 V-neck jumpsuits priced at M&S from £11.
Sainsbury’s is slightly cheaper, starting at £7, John Lewis from £7.70, Asda from £7 and Matalan from £9.
As you can see other retailers are very competitive on price and sometimes even when you take advantage of the early sign-up M&S offer, they still cost more than other retailers.
It all depends on what you are looking for in terms of quality and what your budget is.
It can be helpful to visit stores instead of buying online to be able to see and get a feel for what you’re getting for your money.
