black friday


Ever since we were kids, we got an advent calendar to start the countdown to Christmas. On December 1, we’d tear off the tinfoil on the first door to discover a little piece of chocolate. It’s a tradition that has always been part of Christmas, in some way, shape or form.

As we got older, we started to buy beauty advent calendars, finding mini lipsticks and hand creams behind each door.

However, we’ve now found the dream advent calendar and it’s currently on sale.


Boots has restocked the adorable Disney Ladies Ankle Socks Advent Calendar and we need to buy one ASAP.

The calendar was swiped up when it was first released and we’re not one bit surprised.

Disney character socks may not be the most stylish choice but they are just too cute.

The 12 Socks of Christmas set features characters like Dumbo, Belle, Olaf, Tinkerbell and Bambi.

The Cruella de Vil socks have to be our favourite. She is the greatest Disney villain after all.

The calendar is currently on sale for Black Friday so make sure you pick one up before they’re all gone. There’s no doubt this delight will sell out super quickly.

The 12 Socks of Christmas calendar is €26.66 and you can buy on here.



Turning Black Friday on its head, the Fashionably Upending Black Friday Event is on until 5pm today. Instead of focusing on the hysteria of the high street, the event is an encouragement to all to remember to buy local and buy sustainably this Christmas. 

Hosted by Roisin Scott of @chaosnharmony, the entire venue is full of Irish vendors selling design-led, sustainable quality pieces including kids fashion, jewellery, toys, art, crafts, womenswear and more.

The Dublin Pizza Company will be there to ensure you are well fed too.     Support local businesses by popping by today to say hi and even pick up something small. 

There are more than 30 Irish businesses attending such as Lou & Belle, Chaos & Harmony, Lil & Izzy, Reuzi, Fancy Fawn, LaineyK, The Pod Collection, Fable Heart and many more.

Location – The Well, 133 St Stephens Green, Dublin 2.

Entrance cost – free

Say goodbye to Black Friday and hello to Green Friday by buying Irish brands and products on November 29, urges a leading Irish retailer.

Green Friday is an initiative led by Marian O’Gorman of Kilkenny to champion a movement to support Irish brands and businesses nationwide.

 Kilkenny, and bodies like the Design and Crafts Council, Retail Excellence, SFA, Chambers Ireland and others will lead a powerful and passionate drive to reawaken people to the significance of buying Irish, shopping local, and the wealth of talent and enterprise behind our Irish craft and design businesses.

A national campaign is to be rolled out in the coming weeks, encouraging people in Ireland to drive our economy, support jobs and nurture our creative community in these uncertain times by purchasing Irish goods on one of the busiest shopping days of the year – the last Friday in November. 

Previously, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have been enthusiastically embraced by Irish consumers, with more than €50 million spent over the course of the weekend in 2018.

Speaking of the campaign, Marian O’Gorman, CEO of Kilkenny issued a passionate call to action to shoppers;

“Our survey of consumers shows that 84% prefer to buy from Irish suppliers."

“This does not surprise me as Irish brands and products are second to none and, as a nation, we have many that are leaders on a world stage.

“We, as consumers, need to appreciate the fundamental fact that by keeping money in circulation in our own communities, we are protecting jobs and public services,” added Marian O’Gorman.

Around €4.65 billion will be spent by Irish shoppers during the Christmas period, based on research from Retail Ireland. Green Friday is designed to remind consumers of the power that they yield and the effect their support has on the designers, makers and businesspeople of the country.

“Irish consumers are seeing more and more how buying locally made products from Ireland’s designers and makers is an inspired choice that helps our economy and our environment,” said Brian McGee, Market Development Director, Design & Crafts Council of Ireland.

Brands and businesses are encouraged to market their products under the Green Friday banner, highlighting the value of shopping locally.  Check out microsite goforgreenfriday.com which provides businesses with free downloadable marketing material.



With temperatures threatening to drop to as low as -1 this weekend, and Black Friday in full swing, we're on the market for cosy, comfy jumpers to see us through the cold months. 

We have seen SO many stunning knitted jumpers, that are stylish and cool, but also warm and cosy – a winning combo – and we just had to share.

From online to the high street, these jumpers literally have you covered.

Topshop Swirl Drip Jumper €42. 00, ASOS DESIGN neon cable jumper €38.71

Zara Oversized Jacquard Sweater €29.95, Topshop Chunky Roll Neck Jumper €48.00

Bershka zebra print jumper €41.46, Zara Sequin Jumper €59.95

Colour block roll neck jumper €24.95, COLLUSION space dye jumper with roll neck €41.48 

Leopard Sleeve Jumper €12.00, Dark green knit chenille jumper €40.00



Feverous Black Friday shoppers are HELLA p*ssed off as they are being forced to wait HOURS in online store queues.

Customers are being forced into virtual lines on store websites, yet retailers are claiming this was all properly planned… eh, what?

One man shared a screenshot on Twitter of his queue number: 107578th in line. Good God, people, this is utter madness.

It's fair to say that the eager online population are sufficiently angry, with complaints coming in left, right and centre for numerous brands, such as Debenhams.

A Debenhams spokesperson claimed that the system was "managed" and that customers have all been successful with their shopping experiences:

"Some customers experienced a short delay in accessing our website at peak hours last night."

"By implementing a managed 'queue system' we were able to ensure that once customers had accessed our site, they were all able shop the offers successfully."

Reports of thousands of websites crashing are also gaining traction on Twitter, it seems that online stores were hugely unprepared for the onslaught of consumerism which Black Friday brings:

Sky News were told by Game:

"Due to the volume of traffic to our site we are operating a queuing system to make it as fair as possible to our customers in getting the deals they want."

However, stores this morning on the high street were experiencing regular volumes of customers, with no queues in sight. It seems online shopping has officially taken over:

Remember gals, Black Friday is a massive marketing campaign, so try to resist the mania surrounding it.

Use deals websites to spot the best discounts, ask yourself if you really need the items and don't assume that just because it's on sale, it's a bargain.

Economically and environmentally conscious shopping needs to be a priority with the massive amounts of clothes going to waste.

Stay strong gals, resist the urge.

If you can't resist, we hope you get through the online queue hysteria at least.

6. Prior preparation

As one of our secondary school teachers once, said prior preparation prevents piss-poor performance, and you're applying this little life lesson to the Black Friday sales. 

After all, you have your entire party season wardrobe to acquire as well as gifts for the entire extended family.

You've plotted out the best sales, added your fave pieces to your saved items, now it's just a waiting game.

5. On your, marks, get set…

And we're live! You have all your tabs open, ready to conquer the sales.

You're clicking through the virtual rails or dresses, knitwear and winter coats so fast you're in line to get carpal tunnel.

4. Calculations

You've made sure you had a budget and all your ducks in a row, but somehow, you can't choose between those ASOS coats and they both go in the basket. You can live on beans on toast until December, right?

I mean, what monster would actually ask you to choose between that must-have vinyl puffer coat and that nifty little fur number?

3. Bitter disappointment

Those boots you have been lusting after and waiting to purchase all week are completely sold out.

You honestly consider whether you could stuff your feet into a size 3 shoe for 50pc off but we all know that's not going to work.

2. Triumph

Scenes of joy! Those boots may have been divine, but that pair of work-perfect loafers you've just spotted will be joining your work wardrobe sooner than you can say 'add to basket.' 

And you've got a pair for your Mum. And your favourite cousin. And your boyfriend's sister.

We think this gif says it all really.
