What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving. While it wasn’t a holiday, it earned the name in the 1950s when factory employers found that a large number of their employees were calling in sick following Thanksgiving.
The highly sought-after deals that can be found on Black Friday were used to mark the beginning of the Christmas season in the USA, although this didn’t gain nationwide popularity until the mid-80s. After this day began to gain traction across the country, the deals available quickly became more competitive and, therefore, more lucrative to the consumer. Eventually, Black Friday made its way across the pond to the UK.
So, the next time you get your hands on a huge Black Friday bargain, remember to thank an American that didn’t want to go to work.
When will boohoo release their Black Friday deals?
With the constant battle between retailers to have the best and biggest deals, we now frequently see this date move forward and last until Cyber Monday with many retailers. In 2021, boohoo began its Black Friday sale on the 22nd of November, providing its customers with great Black Friday deals for the entire week. During that week, we saw the biggest discount we’ve ever seen - 99% off everything sitewide!
According to Giuli Graziano, the last few years of Black Friday sales have shown that the best time to shop is the early hours of Friday morning when their deals are fresh. If you’re looking for the quietest time to shop to avoid a slow site and items going out of stock every second then your best bet is between 2 am and 4 am on Friday.

What kind of deals can I expect to find at boohoo on Black Friday?
In 2021, boohoo had discounts running from 30% to 99% for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. During last year’s highly anticipated sale, there were a ton of deals that people were rushing to get their hands on. Some of the top deals we saw last year were:
Petit Split Waist Rigid Straight Leg Jeans with a 32% discount making them only £19.
Acid Wash Pocket Elasticated Cuff Joggers with a 40% discount making them only £18
Zebra Print O Ring Co-ord with a 48% discount making them only £17.
Snake Pu Flares with a 40% discount making them only £13
Tall Raw Hem Turn Up Denim Shorts with a 50% discount making them only £8
boohoo has stepped up their Black Friday deals every year to bring in bigger and better savings to their customers.
In 2018, they offered 25% off everything site wide.
In 2019, they jumped up their deals and offered 75% off everything plus free delivery.
In 2020, Black Friday gave us 30% off everything and a discount off their annual next day delivery pass.
And as mentioned above, in 2021, we saw their huge 99% off everything and 30% off everything on Cyber Monday.
With boohoo’s passion for making their sales bigger and better every year, we expect them to recreate the same magic they brought last year with some huge savings on amazing products. Make sure you keep an eye on boohoo’s Black Friday announcements because, with the stocking issues we have seen this year over a huge array of retailers, it is quite likely they may begin their sale even earlier than they did last year to bring their customers the same massive discounts.
What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday is, as the name suggests, a purely online sale that occurs on the Monday following Thanksgiving. It was named by Ellen Davis and Scott Silverman and, initially, it was created in an attempt to bring some much-needed attention to online shopping in 2005 when the internet was still at its humble beginnings.
Smaller online retailers needed help in November to battle with the bigger retailers taking part in Black Friday. Eventually, the two days, Black Friday and Cyber Monday became equal tyrants in the world of discounts and deals and have seemingly come together to make one huge sale for many retailers.
When is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday is the Monday following Thanksgiving and Black Friday; this year it falls on Monday 28th November. Currently, boohoo hasn’t been too specific about what Cyber Monday deals they will be championing this time around, however, many of their Black Friday deals will carry over to Cyber Monday and we expect to see them continue their trend over from the last few years and treat their customers to 30% off everything and also include free delivery to the mix.
