What is Black Friday?

Black Friday in the UK is a major shopping event. It originated in the United States and takes place on the Friday following Thanksgiving, which falls on the fourth Thursday of November. In the UK, Black Friday 2023 is on the 24th of November and is characterised by retailers offering substantial discounts online and in-store.

Black Friday has become one of the busiest shopping days of the year, with consumers eagerly taking advantage of the deals to purchase a wide range of products, from electronics and fashion to home appliances and more.

In recent years, Black Friday in the UK has extended beyond a single day and often encompasses an entire weekend or even a week of sales, providing shoppers with ample opportunities to grab some great deals.

So how do you bag a bargain on Black Friday?

Top Tip 1: Plan Ahead

Black Friday can be overwhelming, so planning your shopping strategy in advance is key. We recommend researching the brands and clothing items you're interested in and creating a wish list to stay focused. Take note of the shops offering the best online and offline deals to get a feel for where the most significant discounts can be made.

Top Tip 2: Download your favourite Brand's Apps

In the midst of the Black Friday frenzy, one smart move that fashion enthusiasts should consider is downloading the apps of their favourite brands. While the chaos of crowded stores and endless queues can be overwhelming, having your favourite brands' apps at your fingertips can be a game-changer.

These apps provide a convenient shopping experience from the comfort of your home and come packed with exclusive benefits and savings to elevate your Black Friday fashion haul. From personalised deals and early access to discounts to in-app promotions and seamless browsing, these apps are a secret weapon to unlocking the best fashion deals.

Top Tip 4 - Compare Prices and Discounts

While it's easy to get caught up in the excitement of Black Friday, it's essential to compare prices and discounts across different stores. Don't settle for the first deal you see; check if other retailers offer better prices for the same or similar clothing items. You can also use price comparison websites or apps to quickly assess the deals and ensure you get the best value.

Top Tip 5: Online vs. In-Store

Decide whether you prefer to shop online or in-store during Black Friday. Both options have their advantages. Online shopping allows you to avoid crowds, shop from the comfort of your home, and easily compare prices.

On the other hand, in-store shopping allows you to try on clothes, feel the fabrics, and discover additional deals unavailable online. Consider your preferences and weigh the pros and cons to make an informed decision.
