TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Welcome to the Luella’s Boudoir website terms and conditions for use. These terms and conditions apply to the use of this website at www.luellasboudoir.co.uk. By placing an order with us you will be deemed to have read, understood and agreed to these terms and conditions. If you are unhappy with any aspect of these then you should contact us before placing an order.
This website and our Terms and Conditions have been designed for use within the United Kingdom and under UK law. Whilst we are happy to consider requests for products and enquiries from outside the United Kingdom, we give no representation or warranty, express or implied that the use of this website or the placing of any order through this website from outside the UK complies with any applicable non-UK laws or regulations. Accordingly, any products or promotions not permitted under your local law are not offered to you. These Terms and Conditions cannot be varied except for changes made by us on the site, which we may carry out occasionally. In particular, nothing said by any representative of Luella’s Boudoir will operate as a variation of these Terms and Conditions or will constitute a legal representation.
A Contract between the customer and Luella’s Boudoir, for the sale of our products will only exist once an order has been accepted, processed and despatched (at which point the buyer’s credit/debit card will be charged for the value of the goods despatched). This does not affect the customer’s statutory rights.
The advertising of products on this site is an ‘invitation to treat’. This means that your order is an offer, not a contract between you and Luella’s Boudoir, until you receive a ‘confirmation of order’ email despatched once card authorisation has been confirmed and stock availability has been checked.
The price and availability of goods is subject to change without notice. This means that the price confirmed after placing the order may be different to that charged at delivery. Every effort is made to ensure that this will not happen – please refer to our returns policy, below. A delivery charge will be added to your order value where appropriate. Please see delivery times and charges below.
Luella’s Boudoir must receive full payment for your order before it can be accepted. Once your credit card has been authorised and stock availability checked, Luella’s Boudoir will send you an email confirming your order. Please keep a copy of this confirmation for your records. We can only accept orders for items that are in stock. In exceptional circumstances, if we are not able to fulfil an order once it has been accepted, your credit card will be re-credited with the original price and we will notify you by email. Under no circumstances will we be liable to you for any additional amounts. We reserve the right to refuse to supply to any person for whatever reason.
If you are not entirely delighted with the products that you have chosen, you may return them to us within 7 days of receipt. We will be more than happy to offer you an exchange or, at our option, a refund provided that the products are returned complete, in perfect condition, unused, and with the original packaging. (Please refer to the returns section below for items that are excluded from our returns policy).
For all returns, except where the item is faulty, you will be required to arrange and pay for the return of the products to us. Please note that we’re unable to refund return postage. We will only refund or provide an exchange for the costs of postage where the item returned is faulty. We strongly recommend you obtain a free ‘Certificate of Posting’ from the post office, as we cannot accept responsibility for parcels lost in transit. For peace of mind, you may want to send the goods Recorded Delivery, but we regret we cannot refund this charge. You may want to make sure you have sufficient insurance cover, especially when returning valuable products.
Please send your items to: Luella’s Boudoir, 33 Church Road, Wimbledon Village, SW19 5DQ.
Refunds for items bought as gifts can only be given to the original purchaser. If you decide to exchange an item, the purchaser will be informed.

Should you decide not to wait for the items to come into stock, you may choose to cancel your order and request a full refund or change your order.
We are happy to replace/refund accessories, shoes & clothing items provided they are returned to us in the same perfect condition that they were despatched and in their undamaged original packaging (including all enclosed parts e.g. shoe bags, filling, tissue paper and fabric swatches).
Please note: we are unable to accept exchanges or refunds on the following items (unless found faulty):
• Lingerie/swimwear – due to hygiene reasons, unless found faulty.
• Pierced jewellery items (e.g. earrings) – due to hygiene reasons, unless found faulty.
• Made-to-Order or Bespoke items – those custom made for you. This includes items dyed for you, customised products, any item made to your own specification or items made to order especially for you (this shall be stated on our website in the particular item´s full description).
You are legally entitled to be able to cancel your order with us within 7 days receiving the goods however we reserve the right to refuse a cancellation (refund) outside this time frame. We require all goods to be returned to us within a further 3 business days, so please ensure your unwanted goods arrive back with us within 10 work days from delivery.
In the unlikely event that an item delivered to you arrives faulty or damaged in transit please notify us within 3 business days, so that we may arrange a replacement and the return of the faulty goods to rectify the situation.
We regret we are unable to refund postage and packing unless the items are found faulty and are being replaced – in this case we shall cover any costs of returning the items and replace them for you. Should you require a refund only, we are not able to refund the delivery costs, only the value of the unwanted goods that are being returned to us.
Provided any unwanted goods arrive back with us within 10 work days from delivery to you and in the same new and perfect condition as dispatched, we are always happy to exchange them for an alternative which we hope you’ll find far more suitable.
By what method should you return items to us?
We recommend that you use an insured service (such as Royal Mail’s “Special Delivery” for those within the UK) to cover the value of any items you return to us and guarantee delivery speed as we cannot be held liable for any parcels that we do not receive or arrive past the timeframes explained above (items must arrive back within 10 work days from delivery to you). Insured services will also compensate you for any losses or damage. Proof of postage does not guarantee delivery nor does it protect you from losses, delays, or damage to the parcel during transit.
Refunds are made by the same method of payment used to purchase from us and please allow up to 28 days (from our receipt of your unwanted goods or date of order cancellation) for your refund to appear on your bank or card statement. Orders paid for by debit/credit card are refunded back to the same card. Orders paid for by cheque are refunded by cheque. Orders (or part-orders) paid for by Credit Notes shall be refunded by a replacement Credit Note and will not be redeemed for cash.
Unless otherwise stated, all items in our sales are new, perfect and covered by the same full Returns Policy as our normal priced items. Sale goods may be returned for refund should you find them unsuitable in any way (in accordance with our Terms and Conditions). Exchanges may also be available (at the same sale price), but only if the replacement item you require is also available in our sale.
Your statutory rights are not affected by Luella’s Boudoir’s returns policy.
