Marks & Spencer offers classic and versatile pieces, so if you’re looking to update your wardrobe this winter, I bet you’re excited about its Black Friday sale.
The British brand has been a staple in so many people’s wardrobes since its launch way back in 1884 because of both its affordability and timeless designs.
Its pieces barely date, which means they can stay in your wardrobe for years instead of the throwaway attitude of many fast fashion labels right now.
Black Friday will take place at the end of the month, so will M&S take part?
I did the digging, and here’s what I found.

When is the Marks & Spencer Black Friday sale?
The bad news is M&S stopped joining the shopping event in 2017.
In a conference speech, the brand’s CEO Steve Rowe said: ‘We didn’t do it last year either. When we did do it, we found it sucked sales forward. Customers are more interested in different types of technology, like TVs, which we don’t sell.’
The good news is even though the brand has not officially taken part in the sale event, it does still offer deals during that time of the year — during Cyber weekend.
In case you didn’t know, Black Friday is held during the last Friday of November. Meanwhile, Cyber weekend is the weekend right after Black Friday.
We have to keep an eye out on the brand’s plans for this year, though, because it held different sales events for different categories in November last year.
How big are the Marks & Spencer Black Friday deals?
The discounts vary depending on the category, but they usually go up to 30%.
Select womenswear often gets 30% off while the prices of beauty products are slashed by 20%.
If you happen to be a fan of its wine selection, you may also get a chance to snag a bottle with a 30% discount.
If you can’t wait for the discounts to begin or want to prepare your wishlist before they do, here’s ours to get you inspired.
