In general, you can tell what is available from repositories by updating synaptic and seeing what it lists.  To your question, yes, skype:i386 is in the repositories.

I can not keep Skype in Sparky repos - MS EULA doesn't let me do that.

Anyway, there is 'skype-installer' package in the repos, which lets you download and install Skype.
Nothing is easy as it looks.
