    on Friday last week?

    Hello! Would you say that the following sentences represent correct English?

    a) "It was sent to you on Friday last week."

    b) "It was sent to you Friday last week."

    c) "It was sent to you last Friday."

    I am looking forward to your viewpoints.

    Re: on Friday last week?

    The last two words of c are commonly (optionally) inverted, usually for emphasis: 'It was sent to you ages ago... Friday last, or maybe the week before - I remember it was a Friday though'. (I suspect this inversion may be regional, but it's very common.)
