The website promises to be "brighter, bolder, better"

Retailer Marks & Spencer has unveiled its new magazine style website, promising to be "brighter, bolder, better" with a raft of new ideas and inspiration for its customers.

The company, which is working to make online an important part of its business, has introduced outfit suggestions for different occasions, with larger product images, as well as more video content and detailed information on each item.

M&S will be hoping the new design freshens up its clothing business, which suffered yet another decline in sales in the third quarter.

Like-for-like general merchandise sales - which include clothing and footwear - fell 2.1% during the 13 weeks to 28 December, while total general merchandise sales slipped 1.1%.

Analysts have questioned how successful M&S' general merchandise strategy is, noting the pace of change for clothing needs to go "further and faster".
