Black Friday is coming - Oh, Happy Day!
Black Friday Women's Clothes IrelandBlack Friday may be a bit of a “makey-uppey” holiday here in Ireland, but we LOVE it. What’s not to love about a yearly excuse to hit the shops (*ahem* and websites) to grab some bargains and zhuzh up our winter wardrobes before party season kicks in?
Whether you call it Black Friday, Green Friday, Cyber Monday or the Pre-Christmas Sales, we call it a GOOD TIME TO SHOP for those of us who love getting high style at low prices (and I think that’s all of us, right?.....). Whether you’re after a Christmas Day outfit, a present for a loved one, workwear for the return to the office or a whole new winter wardrobe, you’re sure to score a bargain on Black Friday. And if you’ve had your eye on a particularly lush leather jacket, or something else that is a smidge over budget, then this is the time to stalk your favourite boutique mercilessly, so you can swoop in and grab it when the price is right. Here, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about the sale event at Aine’s, including what deals you can expect and how to make the most of them.
To begin with, Black Friday - Green Friday - Cyber Monday is always a big deal, but Aine’s has something extra-special planned for this weekend in 2021.

We’re delighted to be re-opened and getting to see your lovely faces in the boutique again! We’re also celebrating the fabulous year you’ve given us at Aines.ie - our stylish new website where more and more customers find us every month.

We’re delighted that you’ve continued to choose and support Aine’s even while our doors were closed. We want to say THANK YOU for sticking with us through the Lockdowns, and we want to reward your loyalty by sharing some love on Black Friday [heart]

What is Black Friday?So, what exactly is Black Friday?
It may just sound like an excuse to shop (not that there’s anything wrong with that!), but Black Friday is a long-established, post-holiday event in America, where they have elevated shopping to an art form. Thanksgiving in the USA takes place each year on the fourth Thursday of November, and it’s a non-commercial holiday. Thanksgiving is a day when families meet and eat and focus on togetherness and gratitude, with no gifts exchanged. Awww. That’s sweet, right?
On the day after Thanksgiving however, all that changes. Focus shifts to the NEXT BIG DAY on the calendar, which is Christmas - and Americans take to the streets and malls to begin shopping for Christmas. Retailers soon hopped on this tradition, and began launching pre-Christmas sales on that day, and the shops would be thronged with people grabbing the bargains (hence the name “Black Friday”).
As the world became more of a global village through the 20th century, and many US retailers began trading internationally, Black Friday became a worldwide phenomenon that is even bigger than the January Sales, and which you, dear Customer, get to benefit from!
Black Friday 2021 falls on 26th November, and we’ll have a sneak Sale Preview taking place the week before that. The sale concludes on 29th November, which is also known as Cyber Monday.
When is Black Friday 2021?
In 2021, Black Friday - Green Friday - Cyber Monday at Aines.ie will offer our customers the same great deals online as they can get in the boutique. We’re bringing the bargains to you, regardless of how you choose to shop!
The Monday following Black Friday is known as Cyber Monday and it is the last day of the sales. It’s named as such because pre-Christmas online shopping normally peaks on this day and many retailers offer online-only flash sales that day. It’s the last opportunity to bag a bargain over the sale weekend.
What is Cyber Monday?

Check your existing wardrobe and remind yourself what you already have, so you can buy what you need. Don’t, for the love of God, buy ANOTHER PAIR OF BLACK TROUSERS, if you already have three pairs hanging there. Instead invest in a luxurious sweater or a well cut jacket in this season’s colours, to go with the trousers you already own and love. Reacquaint yourself with your favourite items especially, and shop smart by picking up things that will go with them, make them look more current and create a whole new look that is more on-trend. We are big advocates of buying well and getting great value for money by keeping and re-wearing your favourite items many times, styled multiple ways. Learn more about styling in our Aine’s LIFEStyle Blog on our website.
While you’re shopping at Aines.ie, you can add items to your basket and whittle down the list later at checkout, but don’t forget to register your account once you’ve added something to your basket. If you log out without having entered your personal details, your basket of goodies may be lost forever and we would hate for that to happen to you! As Queen Bey says, “If you like it, then you shoulda put your name on it “to ensure it’s still there if you get logged off for any reason.
And remember - even if you’re tempted by the low, low, LOW prices on some items - buy only the things that will suit your body and your lifestyle. It’s not a bargain if you’ll never wear it, no matter how little you paid. Smart shoppers make a shopping list, check it twice, and stick to it. Happy Browsing!
