I just so totally love it when you find a bargain buy on something normally pretty pricy that you can't really avoid having to fork out for - and this is totally one of those moments. This Sugar Girls Ski Jacket was originally £59.99 at Tesco Direct but it's now just £14.99
According to the reviews this is a super warm and cosy coat, and it washes well in the washing machine, too.
It's made from snow-proof fabric and apparently has an integrated snow-skirt which is apparently a clever way of keeping the snow out of your pants if you hit the deck on the ski slopes. It's just the ticket if all the doom-mongering about the terrible winter that's ahead turns out to be true!
It's also fleece-lined, and the hems and cuffs can be adjusted. Oh, and it has heaps of pockets including one for your mobile phone.
Standard delivery takes 3-5 days from Tesco Direct and will cost £3.00 but if you don't want to fork out for the delivery charge, opt to order one online but use the Click & Collect service - you can pick it up from the most convenient branch the very next day without paying an extra penny.
