The Michael Kors Black Friday 2019 sale is one to bookmark. While we love shopping discounts from the likes of Topshop and H&M, it's sales from more spenny brands like Monica Vinader, All Saints and Michael Kors that we get most excited about.
This year, Michael Kors has just dropped a promotional code for 20% off everything full price on the site. On top of that, there's 40% knocked off selected lines. From logo phone cases to dreamy designer bags, you could get a piece of MK from as little as £24.
But you'll have some competition; Black Friday is fresh hell. We suggest you shop online for all of the below reasons:
a) To save you fighting someone over the last size 10
b) Because stock options are 100% better online
c) Because, bed – who wants to brave Oxford Street, when they can shop while double screening Netflix?
d) There will be serious crowds and, you know, CBA
Need some help getting your head around it? We're on-hand with a helpful guide to navigating the Black Friday sales:
What's 40% off in Michael Kors's sale?
Ok, so the 20% off promotional code is obvs absolutely great – you can get all the new-season dresses/footwear/accessories at their cheapest – but it's the big bargains you're after, right? We've picked out the best bits here:
What other brands are taking part in the Black Friday sales?
Brands are remaining tight-lipped about 2019's offers, but take a look at last year's deals for a sign of what is in store:
River Island: Last year, River Island dropped a blanket discount last year, of 20% off full-price items. But, there was a catch: the promotion was only activated after you spent over £75. Find out more here.
Selfridges: Selfridges just launched its annual Christmas Come Early sale. The luxury department store is giving customers a discount code for 20% off jewellery, watches, women’s accessories, womenswear and women’s shoes.
When is Black Friday 2019?
Black Friday always falls on the fourth weekend of November which, this year, is 29th November. From our experience, clothes shopping is a little easier than tech or beauty, because there's less of a panic.
Does Michael Kors take part in Black Friday?
Hell, yes. The brand has taken part (in a big way) for two years now.
What was in the Michael Kors' Black Friday sale last year?
Literally anything and everything. The brand dropped a promotional code a few days before Black Friday, giving customers 20% off anything full-price (the discount was applied once you hit 'checkout'). There was also a separate sale, with up to 40% off selected lines.
What even is Black Friday?
Black Friday kickstarted in '30s America when the department store Macy's cashed in on the annual Thanksgiving Day parade (if you love Gossip Girl, you'll remember Dan and Serena watching it on TV in season six).
The term 'Black Friday' wasn't officially coined until years later, with the event becoming more of a thang during the big capitalist years of the '80s (ya know, Working Girl, Wall Street bankers and, um, all the independent ladies reading Cosmopolitan). FYI, it's always been manic AF, that's why we prefer to shop online from the smug comfort of our homes.
Amazon was the first retailer to bring Black Friday over to the UK, offering customers online discounts and deals on the same day as the sales in the US. Supermarket Asda was next, creating some serious fuss (and physical fights, for real) with huge discounts on TVs and tech in store.
Soon the rest of the UK caught on to the potential pre-Christmas profit and the rest is history.
