black friday uk 2012.jpgToday is Black Friday, an American tradition that seems to get bigger here in the UK every year - and without a Thanksgiving to get in our way, there's no excuse not to indulge in a spot of pre-Christmas bargain shopping. But don't forget these sales run right through until Monday, allowing you to grab some great deals at what is otherwise one of the priciest times of the year.

What's in it for handbag and accessory lovers? Here are a few deals we've spotted that might make you smile...

  • My Wardrobe has 25% off everything this weekend, including some fabulous bags and accessories. You can get £93 off Marc Jacobs classic 'Petal to the Metal' bag, or an equally juicy discount on dozens of small leather goods in the Gift Section. Simply add the code PERFECTPRESENT25 to get your discount.

  • Radley has an excellent mid-season sale on at the moment, with plenty of discounts on its classic pieces.

  • ASOS has a fantastic 30% off all accessories this weekend, with its usual huge range of bags, watches and costume jewellery at much lower-than-usual prices. We like this Firework Clutch, which would be ideal for Christmas and New Year parties.

  • Debenhams continues its 25% off almost everything promotion this weekend - including a wide range of evening bags at reduced prices.

  • Boohoo is offering 10% off all product lines with the code 10UK - simply add it at the checkout to get its party clutches even cheaper than usual. We rather like this black and gold chain link bag with studs.

  • Remember, Kurt Geiger sells much more than shoes nowadays, and there's an amazing 25% off all products running until midnight Sunday. Just add the code KGXMAS20 at the checkout.
