DELIVER TO SHOP
For our UK orders we provide a free of charge in-store collection service. This option can be selected when you proceed to place your order through the Website.
Orders for collection at our store will be ready for collection approximately 1-2 days after the date on which the Order Confirmation email is received.
We will call you to let you know when your order is ready for collection. You will need to collect your order from our shop within 7 days of our call informing you that your order is ready for collection. If you do not collect your order within this time, your order will be cancelled, and you will be refunded via your original method of payment. Obviously, we can make exceptions but need to be notified if an item is to be held for more than 7 days.
A copy of your Order Confirmation email (printed or electronic) together with the card used for payment and a valid photo ID must be shown at time of collection. If you authorise somebody else to collect the Products from our shop on your behalf, they will also be required to present the information above. Please note, the valid photo ID required is yours not the person collecting the order.
Our returns policy for in-store purchases is that they must be returned within 7 days. For online or telephone order you need to notify us within 14 days of purchase and return the item(s) within 14 days of notification. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.
To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.
Please note we do not accept returns of underwear or earrings.

Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer.
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days.

If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you’ll receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a store credit will be mailed to you.
