I told myself I wasn't going to do a Black Friday post. I find it slightly bemusing that in recent years the idea of slashing prices and offering big pre Christmas discounts has travelled across the pond from the US. Along with Cyber Monday retailers are gearing up for what they hope to be one of their biggest weekends. With it being payday for many too I'm sure lots of people will be hitting the high street in search of bargains (but hopefully not fighting over giant televisions this year!)
I even have today's post scheduled to go up later but all of this went out of the window when I arrived home this evening and checked my emails and twitter to find too many good deals on fashion and beauty that I wanted to share. After all who doesn't love a bargain, especially when you've got Christmas presents to buy!
Accessorize have 30% off all jewellery and selected lines including scarves, gloves and bags
ASOS are offering 20% off everything including beauty with the code 'CYBER' at the checkout. High end make up brands including NARS and Illamasqua are on offer. It's free delivery on orders over £20 ( I'm sure I'll have no problem reaching this with my every growing order!)
Benefit has 15% off all products (excluding sale items and Christmas gift sets) with the code 'BLACK15'
The Body Shop are one of the best retailers for their deals all year round and this Black Friday they've got 40% off almost everything (there's a few lines excluded) with free UK delivery on orders over £5. If you're looking to treat yourself or haven't shopped with them before I recommend trying some of their Christmas collections, my favourites are Frosted Plum and Glazed Apple. I also love their skincare products. They have some great gift sets for Christmas which are very reasonably priced and a total steal with the extra 40% discount on top
Boux Avenue have 20% off online and in stores on all full priced products
Ciaté London currently has 30% off everything including their popular 'Mini Mani Month' nails advent calendar
Cloud Nine have £20 off all electrical items (excluding the micro iron) until Monday. These are the holy grail of hair straighteners!
Debenhams are offering VAT free prices on all fragrances including gift sets online and in stores alongside 10% off make up and skincare
The Fragrance Shop has 15% off all gift sets so be sure to check your Christmas shopping lists if anyone you're buying for has asked for fragrances
GAP has 40% off full price styles with the code 'GAPFRIDAY'
GHD have £20 off selected hair stylers, hair dryers and curling irons until Monday. It's also worth checking to see if your local salon is running a deal
John Lewis are running their Price Match deal matching competitors promotions so if you've seen an item on offer elsewhere be sure to check with them too if you'd rather buy it there. They offer a free click and collect service on orders over £30 at their stores or you can pick it up at your local Waitrose
JOY are offering 25% off all full price clothing, accessories and jewellery with the code 'BLACKOUT' online and in stores
Kate Spade has 20% off using the code 'GIFT20' at the check out online and in stores through to Sunday. I love their purses and this offer makes them extra tempting!
Kiehls have 20% off if you purchase 2 or more products. Use the code 'TREAT20'
Office are offering 20% off all shoes online (with free UK delivery) and in stores, great if you're looking to invest in a pair of winter boots or have had your eyes on some new heels for your Christmas party!
M&S have a whole host of offers including 50% off beauty and fragrance gifts, 30% off party wear, 30% off nightwear (handy if you're looking for some new Christmas PJ's or a winter dressing gown) 30% off the Rosie for Autograph lingerie collection and 30% off bags
Models Own are doing 50% off everything online and at the bottle stores, I especially love their glitter polishes at this time of year
Monsoon has up to 30% off party dresses. It's one of my go-to places when looking for a dress for a special occasion, they can be a little more pricey than some high street stores but with 30% off they're much more affordable
Oasis is one of my favourite high street stores, I can't go in without finding something I want to buy but often wish it was that bit cheaper. They've got 25% off everything with the code 'BRIGHT25' so make sure to check it out if you're a fan too. I'm trying to resist buying it all!
Selfridges are doing their 20% off weekend again this year (10% for beauty and fragrance) with the code 'SELFCEE' so if you're lusting after a designer handbag be sure to let Santa know this is the time to invest!
Whistles has 20% off everything until Monday. It's one of those shops I walk past and wish I could afford everything inside, so this 20% off could come in very handy/dangerous. If it's good enough for Kate Middleton...
