You can definitely ice it a few days earlier. It depends on what your filling is as to whether or not you need to keep it in the fridge.

I have started cakes that early myself. But I keep everything in the fridge, not only does it keep longer, but there is no way it will accidentally get bumped just passing by the counter somehow.

I would say that icing on a Thursday for Saturday pickup is a normal practice. Frosting the cake keeps it fresh.

Regarding refrigeration.. unless the filling is perishable, it is not necessary. The fridge actually dries out and zaps moister out of cakes.. so it would be better to leave it out on the counter assuming you have a clean and safe space for it to hang out until you're ready to deliver it.
