Review of

Posted on | August 16, 2007 | 4 Comments

Easy to use, free delivery if certain amount spent, online version of highstreet’s MANGO clothes outlet.

I had gone clothes shopping a couple of weeks ago as managed to wangle a girls’ morning, the boys were off playing soccer and hanging out with their cousins. So myself, the baby and the 3 year old headed into Cork.

I’m not a big fan of clothes shopping, its usually hassle, trying on clothes, getting re-dressed etc etc. I’ve gotten to the stage, I think, of knowing what type and shape of clothes suit me and I’m afraid I’ve always been a bit of a “buy everything in black” person. Though this has modified in recent years to “buy the same item in a few different colours” if I find a skirt or top that I like.

Anyhow, that morning I purchased a skirt in MANGO which I love. A few evenings ago, I decided to have a gander of their website and the shopping part of this

I found it pretty easy to use. The choice of clothes can be narrowed down by Style (eg casual, evening etc), Garment (eg dresses, tops, tshirts etc), price or collection. There is a good sale selection too.

You can zoom in on the particular item you are interested in, though unlike other clothing online sites, you can’t zoom in on a particular part of the item nor rotate it to see the back or side for example.

The website gives suggestions for matching pieces. Select your size and colour and add to shopping bag. Check out was straightforward too.

Delivery of items by DHL took only 3 days and was free of charge as I had spent over €45. I think this is an excellent service. Its about time an online store appreciated the custom and stopped adding a hefty shipping charge on top of the cost of the items.

I am very happy with my purchases and will definitely use this website again.

    Couldn’t agree more on delivery charges! I have major beef with Amazon – as they continue to charge shipping since moving their warehouse to Dublin. So the UK people continue to get free shipping, but we have to pay UK shipping charges although it should work the other way around. Bastards! ;-)

    Am off to look at Mango now!

    Hi Deborah,
    I didn’t know that Amazon had moved their warehouse. That’s incredible that they haven’t updated their delivery charges to reflect the new location. Grrr.

    Hi, I’m really glad to hear you got a great deal with the free delivery on your clothes. I’ve started a petition over on my blog to try and get more fashion outlets to do the same. TopShop in the UK have the free delivery threshold set at £100 which I think is ridiculous.

    Me and my friend placed an order on on the 2nd of December 2011. Mango accepted a payment of 141.74 EUR for 13 items on the 8th of December. But when we’ve received the package, there were just 5 items with the value 52.14 EUR + dispatch 23 EUR. We’ve been writing many letters to them, but not Mango or Mangooutlet answered us. Now it’s 13th of January 2012 and still we have not a word from them. It is so unpleasant such an attitude. Be careful of dealing with Mango or Mangooutlet, they are deceivers the thieves!
