Throughout 2020 and the first half of 2021 the number of sales dwindled somewhat as people numbers were restricted in UK stores. This makes any sale as complicated as it is challenging.
Fortunately, as restrictions lifted, and shopper numbers could return to normal, it gave UK retailers – like House of Fraser – the opportunity to start their popular sales again.
Let’s look in to rest of 2021 for the remaining House of Fraser sale dates, what type of clothing will be available, how many items are usually up for sale, typical savings and also some tips and tricks on finding the very biggest savings!
Latest House of Fraser Sales Numbers – What was on sale and how much discount
We took a close look at the July 2021 House of Fraser 50% off sale.
In total there were 14,808 products in the sale ranging from clothes to toys to beauty and homeware.
Surprisingly more than 50% of the items in sale were in the men’s wear category.
Here is the full analysis of the 14,808 items in the sale:
|Department||Number of Items in the Sale||Average Sale Discount|
|Mens||7,857||30% to 50%|
|Beauty||579||30% to 50%|
|Bags and Luggage||818||40% to 50%|
As you can see, the sales averaged between 30% to 50% discount. Kids wear and bags and luggage looked to provide the biggest savings.
Women’s wear appeared to offer an average of 30% discount during our research, which was one of the lowest across the categories – although a 30% discount is still a good saving.
Each season and each House of Fraser sale comes with its own surprises of course.
Let us take a look at the main House of Fraser sale dates across the year, and how to find the biggest savings!
The Five Main House of Fraser Sale Dates
There are five main House of Fraser sales within a calendar year. There are two in Winter, one in Spring, one in Summer and two in Autumn.
Each sale brings a different season of clothes, accessories, and toys – as well as different saving ranges – but each has a huge range of items on sale (as we saw, in July 2021 there were over 14,000 items on sale!).
We try and keep this page updated as often as we can but it’s always best to check out the main House of Fraser sales page, as sale dates can and do change!
Spring House of Fraser Sale
As the cold weather drifts away and the sun seems to return from its slumber, we welcome not only later evenings and warmer weather – but also the House of Fraser sale!
The Spring sale from House of Fraser has a good range of stock. It’s not the biggest sale of the year but there are still some good bargains to be had.
It usually consists of a range of winter wear, which can be great to stock up in advance for the coming winter seasons.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic it meant many stores had to restrict in-store sales. Limited numbers inside meant a logistical headache.
Sales happened online instead but perhaps not to the level or grandeur the in-store sales once had.
Although it may not be the biggest sale of the year, smart savvy sale shoppers can get some really good bargains as others wait for the larger sales in the year.
Expect the next Spring House of Fraser sale to happen around Monday 18th April 2022.

The 2021 Summer sale was promoted as an up to 50% sale, and throughout our research we found the average sale price was between 30%-50%, depending on department.
51% of the sale items were men’s wear and 18% women’s wear. The rest of the 31% of the sale items were made up of kids, beauty and bags and luggage.

Autumn House of Fraser Sale
House of Fraser have not just one but two Autumn sales!
They have their end of season sale for two weeks in October, and then again for the Black Friday sales at the end of November.
October End of Season Sale
The October End of Season sale is a fortnight long sale releasing some of House of Fraser’s spring and summer fashions.
A range of toys and luggage is available too.
The sale tends to start towards the end of the first week of October and lasts until the third week of October.
It’s best to get in early as stock isn’t always replenished too often during the two week sale period.
Black Friday Sale
Like many retailers, House of Fraser look to promote a range of their clothing items in the Black Friday sales.
This popular U.S. tradition has spread across to the UK in recent years.
Where we see companies turn a profit for the first time, and to celebrate we have the Black Friday sales!

Black Friday Sales will be on Friday 26th November this year.
Winter House of Fraser Sale
As well as two sales in the Autumn there are also two sales in Winter.
Four sales in just two seasons!
These include the Boxing Day and New Year’s Day sales:
Boxing Day Sale
After Christmas sales never started until New Year’s Day, but retailers started releasing their sales a day early, then a day earlier than that etc. all looking to capitalise on the nations want top bargain shop once the Christmas festivities were over.
This day earlier continued until it reached Boxing Day and naturally stopped. Retailers do not want to reduce prices too much before Christmas as this is almost every retailer’s busiest and most profitable period!
The House of Fraser Boxing Day Sale is definitely one worth waking up for!
New Year’s Day Sale
The tradition of New Year’s Day sales continues strong. Shoppers still look at this day as sale day, mainly due to historic and nostalgia reasons.
New Year’s Day sales tend to be an overspill of Boxing Day sales, but that isn’t to say new stock doesn’t arrive on the House of Fraser shelves and online store.
