A lad is a young man. When men want to go out drinking and being noisy – without their girl friends, they are having a 'lad's night out' – but in recent years, it has been noted that girls also like to go out together and be noisy sometimes. They are then called 'ladettes'.

The answer of KayG is right. A Ladette is a girl behaving like a lad with all bad habits like drinking and sleeping around. It's a little rare word.

It's quite common in the UK – but very informal.
