When does the Zara sale start?

Typically, Zara has three big sales throughout the year. The first occurs during the summer, though there is no official or regular start date. The other two fall on Black Friday and Boxing Day. There are already plenty of items on sale on the Zara website, so the 2024 summer sale appears to be in full swing.

Does Zara have Black Friday sales?

Zara does take part in Black Friday sales every year, with the same incredible discounts we often see from the retailer. You can expect to find reductions of over 40%, with hundreds - if not thousands - of items reduced, through to Cyber Monday.

What's the Zara sale refund policy?

Zara's website does not explicitly mention a sale refund policy, so it's safe to assume that any items bought in the sale have the same refund policy as regular Zara items.

Whether you shop online or in-store, you have 30 days from the point of purchase to make a return. You can return items for free in-store, or it costs £2.95 to post an online return. The cost of the return will be deducted from your refund.

The best days to shop at Zara

Zara reportedly restocks its stores every Monday and Thursday, so those are by far the best days to shop in-person if you're on the hunt for specific items and don't want to risk them being sold out.

If you tend to shop online, it is believed that the Zara site is refreshed with new products and restocked every morning, so there is no bad time to shop. However, you'll want to be online first thing if you're hoping to snag a frequently sold out item.

Should you size up or down at Zara?

Despite the many brilliant things about Zara, the brand's sizing can be very inconsistent. Unfortunately, there is no blanket rule for sizing up or sizing down - it will depend entirely on the fabric of the item you're buying and the fit you're after.

From our experience trying on Zara items in-store, most tops and dresses tend to fit true to size. But with trousers and jeans, those who are curvier will probably want to size up.

Every item on the Zara site should have a measurement guide, so we always recommend paying close attention to it to determine the exact size you will need.
