In addition to the standard, high quality M&S range of clothing for men, women and children, there is the ultra trendy per una due range for girls, which is not available in all stores. The home department features an impressive range of home accessories, from soft furnishings to bathroom suites. Not to mention a pretty large range of rather upmarket furniture for every room in the house, including the garden. M&S online is not just restricted to clothes and home accessories - peek into the technology department for phones, TVs, hi-fi, radios, iPods and digital camcorders and cameras. The food department is in two parts. Lunchtogo allows you to order business lunches online - type in post code to see if you are in a delivery area. With food ordering, you have to download an order form to present at participating stores.
