Plus size girls will tell you that it can be a nightmare to shop for fun and fast fashion that actually flatters their shape and fits perfectly – models and mannequins somehow always seem to be a size 4, 6 or 8, and garments never look the same on them as they do real people!

Thankfully, high street saviours Evans are here to plug this gap; stocking great quality and fashionable attire that fits in with current trends and seasons rather than insisting on a one-size-fits-all approach that looks better designed for middle aged women than those of university-attending age.

Here at Student Squirrel we are committed to showing you clever learners what discounts you’re entitled to and how you can save more on your fabulous fashion purchases at evans.co.uk.

Take a look at the contents below and you can even click on a section that takes your fancy.

2. Is there a NUS, UNiDAYS or Student Beans discount?

As the student discount market is quite dispersed in the UK it can be confusing to find out exactly what student discounts avid learners are entitled to.

The 3 biggest ones are NUS, UNiDAYS and Student Beans and each of them have a different offering. We get asked a lot whether there is a xxx student discount through these schemes so we’ve done some extensive researching so we can answer your questions properly!

xxx NUS Discount?

So this is a tad confusing so bear with us. There is no NUS xxx scheme at the moment for students to save. This includes not being included in the NUS Extra card scheme.

HOWEVER, NUS students can still get an xxx discount through the UNiDAYS scheme and get the voucher.

The biggest sales happen around the same time each year. Check the dates below as if one if coming up it might be best to hold on.

Black Friday & Cyber Monday

xxx go big on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and usually release a voucher code to get 30% off everything. This is double the normal student discount so is really worth waiting for.

Boxing Day & January Sales

There are some big sales on around Christmas. Usually they start a couple of days before the 25th, then on Boxing Day there are further reductions and even bigger ones nearer New Year and January.

We recommend that if there is something you want then get it as soon as it’s in the sale as it might sell out.

Spring Mid-season & Easter Sales

Around mid March xxx have a mid-season sale and also something for Easter too.

We’ve found that they have a good 50% sale on selected items, and then add additional discounts of 20% on sale items so you can get up to 70% off. This is one of THE best times for students to bag a bargain.

History of the Brand

Evans was founded in 1930 by businessman and manufacturing expert Jack Green, who spotted a gap in the market for curvy women looking for fashionable attire. It remained a private company for 40 years, but was then bought by the Arcadia Group in 1970 and made public. Using their existing retail portfolio and expertise to grow the business, Evans became part of the family of successful retail brands including Topshop, Topman, Ms Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins.

Mail order purchases were introduced and celebrity endorsements and collaborations began, which helped nurture the Evans name to levels not reached before. Infamous plus-sized model Crystal Renn jumped on-board as well as musician Beth Ditto, and the website opened not long after. Following rapid growth and popularity in the UK and Ireland, Evans launched in the US in 2011 and the same year began offering delivery to over 100 countries worldwide.

Today, over 300 stores on Britain’s towns and cities’ high streets offer fantastic plus-sized fashion to women all over, as well as across the globe. Limited collections sell out quickly and shopping malls compete to host Evans stores in their buildings. Yet we think this is the beginning – the future is curvy and bright!
