When it comes to reliable, high-quality fashion that fits well, you can't go wrong with Boden. The online retailer is a big hit with Mumsnet users, becoming a go-to for stylish wardrobe staples and occasionwear alike. It's no surprise that, when the Black Friday sales start, shoppers are always keen to see what discounted delights Boden has in store for them – and this year is a real treat.
From patterned dresses to cosy knitwear, we couldn't think of a better time than the Boden Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales to grab a deal (or three), especially with the Christmas party season ahead of us. Be warned though: the November sales can be infuriating with so many shoppers having the same goal (and quite often the same product in mind), and those 'sold out' messages on something you really wanted can be disheartening.
Luckily, we're on hand to help. We've been on the lookout for the very best Boden buys as soon as the prices started to drop, so you can view a whole host of stylish savings below. We've also researched how to make the most out of the sales at Boden – essential reading for those who want to be in the know about bagging the top deals.
Here are the best Boden Black Friday deals for 2021.

Does Boden have a Black Friday sale?
Yes, and it's not one that you want to miss. Last year saw fantastic savings from the fashion brand, with up to 70% off clearance items, but the main draw was the blanket offer giving shoppers 30% off the majority of the site with a discount code.
In 2020 we also had an exclusive Cyber Monday offer with Boden where you could get 40% off womenswear, 10% off childrenswear and 10% off menswear with a code, for one day only.
Does Boden offer any other discounts?
Right now you can get up to 60% off some sale items at Boden, but you can expect to see discounts on more clothing in the Black Friday sales.
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is the shopping event of the year, with huge sales from loads of brands giving savvy shoppers the chance to get their hands on some serious bargains in the run-up to Christmas. Although it is often thought of as a one day event, its popularity means that some retailers start their sales early with some deals appearing at the beginning of November.
When is Black Friday?
This year Black Friday falls on Friday 26 November 2021. It is usually the day after Thanksgiving in America.
After the success of previous live Black Friday threads, the Mumsnet shopping team will once again be here from dawn ‘til dusk on the day helping you find the very best online deals around.

How to get the best Boden Black Friday deals
When preparing to shop the Black Friday sales, many Mumsnetters recommend preparing a list before of items you want – ideal if you're shopping for Christmas presents.
It can be a little trickier with clothes shopping though, and sifting through pages of products may not be the most efficient way to spot the best offers on their site, especially as sizes run out pretty fast. Cut your shopping time in half by discovering the best deals they have right here on this page, as we’ll be on alert and adding the biggest discounts below. You’re welcome!
What can we expect from Boden's Black Friday sale?

Here are some of our top picks from the new Boden collection:
When will the Boden Black Friday sale start?
While Black Friday isn't until Friday 26th November, the Boden sales will probably start prior and you can expect to start seeing their deals in the week leading up to Black Friday. Mumsnet users love a good Boden deal – and this coming Black Friday will have a ton of them to choose from.
Why Mumsnet users love Boden
Want to know why Mumsnet users love Boden? Hear it from Mumsnet users themselves:
“Boden clothes are well made and generally fit really well. They mix and match in well with other stuff from everywhere else. Most of it is timeless, so more of an investment than a fad buy. I use Primark for fad buys! Warehouse is my other favourite shop, though after a good summer I am not enthused by their current autumn collection so have bought lots of Boden instead.”
“First time making a Boden purchase and I wanted EVERYTHING! Got some lovely little bits for new DN and a navy Breton for myself (cause I'm original like that).”
“I absolutely love lots of the dresses in the Boden sale! I'm actually quite shocked, and more so that I am actually going to buy at least two dresses and my biggest problem is knowing what ones to buy as I like so many (and what size as I am in between 8-10 around my ribs/hips and never bought adult Boden before).”
What is the Boden returns and refund policy?
Boden normally has a standard three month return period. After that, up until the first anniversary of your purchase, you can return anything that does not meet your expectations – although Boden specifically say garments that have "been mauled by pets, drawn on by nephews, worn while decorating and so forth," don't qualify. If it's up to six months after a purchase and a fault occurs, you’ll still be allowed to get your money back. Following that time period the return would have to be through a replacement or store credit. Although you should be mindful that when returning items bought during a discount, the refund amount will be adjusted accordingly.
This does alter in the sales though, and clearance or sale items must be returned within 14 days for a cash refund. After this fortnight if the product does not meet your expectations, up until the first anniversary of your order arriving, you can return something for account credit.
Please note also, free returns do not apply to sale items.
There are a few restrictions on what you can’t return though:
- Swimwear – if the hygiene protection has been removed
- Earrings – where the packaging seal has been broken, unless faulty
- Cowshed products – if the product has been used or the seal has been broken
- Face covering products – if the package is opened

What were the best Boden Black Friday deals in 2020?
Looking at the offers from the previous year can be a good indication of the types of savings to expect. Last year Boden had a blanket saving applied when using the offer code 'C4L3', but here are some of the other deals we loved:
Colette Ponte Dress, £58.80 (RRP £98)
It's now sold out, but with ¾ length sleeves, a midi length and a lightweight Ponte jersey, this dress was the perfect choice for special occasions in the colder weather. Gently cinched at the waist to subtly fit your shape, the outfit was timeless enough to last years without ever looking off-trend.
“Boden has some gorgeous dresses this season. They're really flattering and look much more expensive than they are.”
Richmond Trousers, £45 (RRP £75)
Mumsnetters have been fans of the Boden Richmond trousers for years for their classic fit, great quality and practical pockets. They're re-invented in a new range of colours and patterns every season (so our collection just keeps on growing) and are available in tall and petite fits, as well as full or 7/8 leg lengths.
“I'm short-legged and very curvy and they look great on me. Both 7/8 and full length are very forgiving, and they've kept shape after many washes!”
“I've just discovered Boden Richmond trousers and they're so bloody comfy! They're actually super flattering on my three-month postpartum bum and chunky legs. And they're so pretty.”
“I agree with Boden Richmond. Very nicely cut and flattering. The fabric is nice and thick and not too stretchy.”
Gracie Knitted Dress, £66 (RRP £110)
Again, this one went fast. Made from a viscose blend yarn that ensures elasticity, as well as thickness, this fit and flare dress, was crafted to ensure the fabric falls over your shape as flatteringly as possible.
“I like them and people say nice things about them when you wear them. Some of the Boden dresses just look lovely.”
