Zara’s new in section is bursting with exciting arrivals every single week, but if you’ve had your eye on an item for months and are hoping to see it added to the sale, you’re probably wondering the next sale starts.
As I’m sure you’re well aware, Black Friday is just days away. Many brands have started their sales already, but as we know, Zara likes to walk to the beat of its own drum.
It never offers discount codes and its sales are few and far between, but will they be taking part in Black Friday?
With the cost of living crisis reducing our financial capabilities to splash out, shopping smarter has never been more important so I’m excited about whenever their next sale will be.
Here’s everything we know.

When does the next Zara sale start?
The Zara sale is now on.
The Black Friday sale will continue until the end of Friday, and last year the brand didn’t take part in Cyber Monday so chances are it’ll be the same in 2022.

Following that, you can expect to see the next major sale taking place from Boxing Day.
The Special Prices section is always good to keep your eyes on however, as Zara sometimes quietly discounts pieces, while you can also find some sale pieces leftover there too.
The summer sale always roughly starts during the third week of June every year, so you can expect to see the same again in 2023.
Can you return sale items?
You have 30 days to return items bought online and in store, but after this period ends you won’t be able to return your items.
As you may or may not know, Zara now charge for returns so it’s also a good idea to try before you buy in-store.
Do Zara ever offer discount codes?
Unfortunately I’ve never come across a discount code for Zara.
Does Zara’s sizing run small?
Shoppers frequently report that Zara’s sizing runs small, but it’s best to try pieces on to work out which size fits you best.
In my experience, some items run large, while others run really small.
There’s also a sizing hack at Zara that TikTok users have shared, with labels helping shoppers work out which sizes to pick.
Tips for shopping the Zara sale
First and foremost, don’t wait for Zara’s sale to start before you purchase your most-loved piece.
I say this because much of the time when something from Zara sells out, it isn’t restocked.
Obviously if you’re looking months ahead this point stands, whereas the day before the sale it makes sense to wait until the following day and make sure you’re at the right place at the right time.
Secondly, download the app and start adding your most wanted items to your favourites list. This is because the sale always starts on the app first, whether an hour before or a full 24 hours ahead of the in-store sale, so it pays to have it.
But skipping IRL shopping isn’t advised. If you miss out on something you’re desperate to buy, check out your local Zara as it might still be there. As many people choose to shop online these days, you’re more likely than ever to discover gems in-store.

Zara’s sales have followed a pattern over the last few years, which makes it pretty easy to predict when they’ll be.
Aside from our advice, the only other ways to make sure you’re in-the-know is to sign up to Zara’s newsletter (and ours, of course).
Does Zara Home have sales?
Yep! Zara Home’s sales follow the same pattern as the fashion sales, so you can expect to save some money around Black Friday.
What is the best day to shop at Zara?
According to WhoWhatWear, Zara is restocked twice weekly – usually Mondays and Thursdays.
The worst day is said to be Saturday.
