UK Shops that deliver to the US

Although living in New York means access to an amazing variety of stores, sometimes it's nice to shop from places in the UK.  I have recently bought items from both the 'Next' and 'M&S' websites, who now deliver to the US.  


I don't care what anyone says, although I like Victoria Secret, I love M&S undies and missed shopping there when we moved to New York.  Now I can stock on up on all that stuff and it isn't too expensive either.  The items cost the same, but you have to pay £15 for shipping and wait 7-10 days to get your delivery, which I think is quite reasonable.  For more information and to get shopping visit http://www.marksandspencer.com/


I also bought a few bits from 'Next Direct'.  They offer free 2 day delivery to the US, which is amazing, but the products cost a bit more than in the UK.  For example a top that is £30 in the UK costs $55 (about £35) online.  So although you save on the shipping and get your stuff quicker, be prepared to pay a little more for it.  I like their Union Jack range of clothing in preparation for the Olympics, they have some fun stuff that looks great and you can be patriotic!  Visit http://www.nextdirect.com/us/en/home to view their full range.


Although 'Next' and 'M&S' aren't the most amazing shops, I bought a lot of my staple items from them in the UK.  They are reasonably priced and mostly good quality, which makes a difference as the washing machines in NYC are mostly dire!  There is also much less chance of bumping into someone with the same outfit as you!
