Black Friday

When is Black Friday?

November 26th 2021. The Friday after the traditional US Holiday Thanksgiving.

However, we may start our sale early... So sign up to our newsletter to be notified first!


What is Black Friday? 

Unofficially or officially, Black Friday is known as the start of the holiday shopping season.

Many retailers, including ourselves, offer discounts & special offers on this day!


Historians believe the term 'Black Friday' started in Philadelphia [USA] in the 1960s as police, bus drivers and commuters used 'Black Friday' to describe the crazy traffic & congestion that would build-up due to shoppers heading to the shops after Thanksgiving. However, more recently 'Black Friday' is used to describe the shopping day as the day retailers make enough sales to put themselves 'in the black' for the year.


Can I Return Eyewear I Bought During The Black Friday Sale? 

Yes, you can return your items bought on Black Friday.

You can actually have up until January 14th 2022 to return your eyewear as we have extended our returns period for Christmas.


Any eyewear bought on Black Friday can be returned for a full refund. All our normal terms & conditions apply for returns so please read our terms & conditions before purchasing. Please bare in mind prescription lenses are non-refundable as these are created bespoke for you.


When Will My Black Friday Purchase Ship?

Our team aim to dispatch your order the same day you order it!

However, if you purchase a pre-order item please factor in the additional time this will take.


If you are adding prescription lenses to your order, please allow an additional 2-5 days for our team to fit your lenses. This may take longer if you are ordering a specialist or varifocal lenses.



About our products and services:


Are all of your products authentic?
We guarantee that all of our products are 100% Authentic. Fashion Eyewear is an authorised retailer; all of our products are entirely genuine and purchased directly from the brand manufacturers. This allows us to offer you the latest eyewear trends at extremely competitive prices. 

Is my order inspected before it is shipped?
We pride ourselves on quality and excellence in our service. Every order is checked and all of the eyewear is thoroughly inspected, cleaned, and securely packaged before it is dispatched to you.

What accessories do I receive with my eyewear?
We always include all the materials provided for your eyewear from the brand. All of the eyewear comes with a protective storage item and cleaning cloth. Some products may have more accessories included.

Why didn’t I receive a hard case with my eyewear?
Some eyewear is supplied with a hard case and some with a soft case/pouch. We can't control the accessories the brand supplies us with; however, we can promise you that your eyewear will come with its original packaging, inclusive of all accessories, as provided by the brand.

Can you fix my glasses if they're damaged?
You will need to give us a call or email us regarding the issue and we will advise you over the phone on what to do next. Alternatively, you book an appointment to come into our store so that one of our expert dispensers can have a look for you.

I want to purchase an item but I don't know my frame size, can you help me?
If you do need help with finding your frame size, take a look at our Frame Size Guide.
What is PD (pupillary distance) and how can I measure it?
Pupillary distance is the distance between the pupils in millimetres. This determines where your prescription is centred in your lenses in optical frames. Most adult PD's are between 60-65mm. You can click here to use our PDMaster tool or measure yourself with our guide on our Helpdesk.

Do you sell bifocal and varifocal glasses?
Yes, we do. If you require details or advice on a specific pair of glasses, please call us on 020 7590 5500.

Do you sell a range of children’s glasses?
We sell children’s non-prescription glasses and sunglasses online.

Are prescription sunglass lenses free?
No. If you wish to place an order for prescription sunglasses, you will need to pay for your lenses. We fit our high quality optical branded lenses into all of our eyewear so you won't receive your prescription sunglasses with the brand's lenses e.g. Ray-Ban prescription sunglasses with Ray-Ban prescription lenses.
