The tote is unsurprisingly selling ultra fast and we expect it to be out of stock pretty soon - so act fast if you want one in your life. 

Shoppers have even been known to stockpile the Lulu Guinness John Lewis bags, buying multiple at once - and for good reason. The John Lewis website has stacks of five-star reviews from customers who've managed to get their hands on the tote before. 

"I absolutely love this bag! It has two different type handles which is useful when there's a lot in the bag and can also put on the shoulder. Love that design and can be used as a beach bag. I've had many compliments. Well done Lulu Guinness," one satisfied shopper wrote. 

One more admitted they'd been patiently waiting to get their hands on it, saying, "I waited a while for this to come back in stock but so glad I did," while another penned, "Very useful bag for shopping or beach, and who can resist a Lulu?"

We have to agree - and we certainly won't be resisting the opportunity to get our hands on the designer bag bargain.
