Students often forget to do this but it’s well worth a look.

Shop During the Big Sales for the Biggest Discounts

The best way for students to get the biggest discounts at Pretty Little Thing is to shop when there is a big sale on.

This is around Black Friday, Christmas when the winter sales begin, Easter time and the spring sale and summer for the big summer sale.

4. Sales Diary & Alerts

Did you know the number one way that students can get the biggest discounts at PLT?

It’s not with the student discount code, it’s actually by shopping in the big sales throughout the year. The squirrel says:

“If you’re savvy and plan your budget well, you can get savings of 50% and more!

I keep my squirrel eyes open so any big sales will be in our  fabulous savings section. Take a look and see how much you can save.”

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.

Prettylittlething Black Friday & Cyber Monday

There are always lots of juicy reductions to be had at around Black Friday week.

This week is usually around the last week of November and often goes over into December as retailers fight for you Christmas spend!

This is a great time to shop for dresses and outfits for christmas parties (oh and getting people presents of cours).

Boxing Day & January Sales

The Christmas sales are traditionally a huge time to get some of the best discounts we’ve seen.

The timings have changed in recent years and after the last delivery day for Christmas PrettyLittleThing start reducing their autumn winter stock.

There are some great reductions on dresses, tops, trousers, skirts, footwear and accessories.

As we pass Boxing Day further reductions are made. We always recommend that if you have your eye on something then you should buy it as stock runs out fast at this time of year.

Spring Mid-season & Easter Sales

Around mid March PLT 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.

Summer Sales

Around mid June the summer sales hit.

PLT know that you’ll be updating your summer wardrobe so there are good discounts on summer dresses, shoes, tees and shorts.

Everything for you to look fabulous on the beach!

5. Best Student Buys

Red Bardot Frill Hem Midi Dress – £20.00

This off-the-shoulder number is flatting to any shape and size and gives a beautiful outline fitting for a night out or summer occasion! There’s an air of the Spanish Senorita to it and you don’t need to accessorize heavily; the dress speaks for itself and will work well paired with just plain coloured accessories. It’s made of 100% polyester for a figure-hugging flattering fit and can be machine washed (although avoid putting it in with whites the first time!).

Grey One Shoulder Strappy Cami Top – £3.00

A bargain basic, this one-shoulder strappy cami is ideal to be worn either an under layer or standalone on hotter days or at the gym. More eye-catching than a standard crop top, this jersey fabric tee is something a bit different. Dress up a blazer, tailored trousers and heels for a night out, or team with leggings for a yoga class; it’s super versatile and for just three quid will see you through a whole host of uses and occasions!

SOSU Dripping Cold Fake Tan Mousse – £22.00

If you’re a tan-a-holic, SOSU’s fake tan mousse is for you: a risk-free way of goldening your skin and getting the glow you desire. Available in a variety of shades and tones to suit all, this mousse is applied topically directly to the skin and is best used with a tanning mitt for even coverage. The mixture is full of moisturiser to help prolong the colour and will fade naturally. What’s more, it’s completely vegan, paraben-cruel and made with cruelty-free ingredients: so this really is the best possible tan you could ask for!

7. More About the PrettyLittle Thing!

You’ll have seen the TV adverts, spotted the outfits in magazines and probably shopped there yourself; but did you know that UK fashion retail website PrettyLittleThing is an offshoot of

A fast fashion website aimed at 16-25 year olds, but often enjoyed by those a little older too, PrettyLittleThing has become a favourite amongst UK consumers looking for the latest fashions at great prices all year round.

Using social media to grow and epitomise on the followers of minor celebrities, the first collaboration the site tried out was with ex-The Only Way Is Essex star Lucky Mecklenburgh, before moving to a US-focus and working with Kylie Jenner. Now, the site operates in the UK, France, USA, Ireland and Australia.

PrettyLittleThing understand the power of social media, and so you can shop direct from their social feeds as well as through their website. Browsing ‘The Edit’ will give you style and outfit inspiration, but you can also shop in the more traditional method of by garment; through Clothing, Dresses, Tops, Shoes, Accessories and Beauty products.

There’s also a great Sales section full of bargains, as well as Occasionwear and ranges for Plus Sized shoppers too.

A Student Discount Squirrel favourite, the online store is a mid-range priced retailer but also offers a 10% student discount across all full-priced products as standard! The Sales section is also worth a browse periodically and is regularly updated with new items and discounts.

You can save on delivery with numerous options too; and if you’re a regular shopper with the site, we’d recommend forking out on a £12.99 one-off payment for a year’s worth of free Next Day Delivery.

Cheaper options are available if you don’t need your parcels quite as quick, including the UK Super Saver at just £1.99 (but quick! You’ll need to order at least a week in advance!).

If you’re a bit of a social media guru, then you may be able to make some extra cash with PrettyLittleThing by becoming an Affiliate. This involves you advertising and promoting PrettyLittleThing’s clothes, shoes and other products online, and then if people who see your post purchase through your dedicated links, you’ll earn up to 10% commission on each sale! If you blog, are studying fashion or have a decent social media following, this may well be worth you looking into as a nice way to make a little extra dollar whilst indulging one of your interests.

The Affiliate scheme is limited, however, and the site reserve the right to choose who they work with, so make sure your social media feeds are looking well curated and clean before you submit an application.

PrettyLittleThing is much more than just a pretty face, with an ever-changing product range and loyal fan following. Browse the site now for inspiration!

How the Brand Was Born

PrettyLittleThing was founded in 2012 by brothers Umar and Adam Kamani. Originally an accessory-only website, the brand grew with demand and started offering womenswear and shoes almost immediately.

Marketing cheaply by utilising social media, PrettyLittleThing grew notoriety by being worn by minor celebrity affiliates, mainly reality TV stars, and then hitting the big time when papped on bigger names such as Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora and Michelle Keegan. Working on celebrity collaboration ranges proved popular and collections so far include those designed with the likes of Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner. In 2016, PrettyLittleThing teamed with both ASOS and Lipsy to sell their products through the website, as well as a limited amount of Next clothing.

It was early 2017 when the Kamani brothers sold the majority stake in their company to, who until then had been a fierce competitor of the brand. The acquisition was viewed as almost universally positive for the retailer, and by November of the same year had been named one of the top three fastest growing fashion companies in the world. Long may it continue; we’re sure great things are in store!
