Back in Black..
Updated: Nov 23, 2018
Unless you're living under a stone you have probably already been bombarded with the latest Black Friday deals and are either bored of it, have spent more than you planned to or are feeling very smug you've found a load of Christmas bargains (whether for someone else or yourself!).
To try and help, I've listed below some of my favourite brands - that I wear and recommend to clients - and the deals they're offering. I've deliberately stuck to high street and independent brands as would typically shop with clients and for myself in these stores.
So without further faffing, which I can easily do, here are some of the Black Friday offers available:
Phase Eight have 25% off everything and a daily deal - today's is 50% off coats and knits. If you are lucky enough to be blessed with curves I've found their knitwear (especially their longer line cardigans) work beautifully with a curvy body, so it's definitely worth a look!
Very.co.uk have up to 50% off certain items, and 30% off brands like River Island.
TopShop has up to 50% off everything.
MissGuided have up to 50% off everything.
New Look have 50% off everything.
Baukjen have 30% off selected lines.
Joules are offering 40% off footwear, knitwear, dresses and tunics.
Boden have up to 30% off plus free delivery and returns over £30. Check out their shoes - they are comfortable and gorgeous, I can't recommend them enough!
Nasty Gal have 50% off everything.
Oasis have at least 25% off everything.
Keep an eye on Zara as you might get lucky - sometimes they offer around 20 - 25% off.
Pretty Little Thing have 50% off everything - always worth a look for sequins!
Miss Selfridge have up to 50% off everything.
If you're looking for party dresses or jumpsuits try AQ/AQ who have up to 50% off selected lines, plus a further discount at the checkout if you spend more than £120.
Jewellery brand Missoma have 25% off everything - perfect for that special gift - and with every order they're planting a tree!
Mango have 30% off using the code Black18.
ASOS have 20% off everything with code Hello20.
Stradivarius start their Black Friday discounts at 10.00pm tonight (Thursday 22nd Nov)!
Mint Velvet have 20% off everything with code Black20.
John Lewis have 20% off selected items.
Bershka start their Black Friday discounts at 10.00pm tonight online (Thursday 22nd Nov) or 8.00pm on their app.
Warehouse have 30% off selected lines.
Hope that helps and keep in mind you don't have to go mad! If you're shopping for yourself, identify in your wardrobe where the gaps are - do you need a decent pair of jeans (head to TopShop), coat (Warehouse), great boots (try Boden or Zara), new dress (Mango, John Lewis, Stradivarius) or party clothes (AQ/AQ, Nasty Gal, Pretty Little Thing) and only make a purchase with something that will work with other items in your wardrobe!
Do let me know if you find any great bargains!
