Important - Delivery & Returns Policy

 

Whilst every effort will be made to ensure that all items shown are in stock, we offer no guarantee of availability and this electronic publication does not constitute an offer for sale. Goods are normally dispatched within 2 working days of receipt and usually the next working day. If we are unable to dispatch your order within 7 days, we will contact you by e-mail with an estimated dispatch date and offer you the option of cancelling the order. Delivery can take up to 7 days within Europe, and 15 days for the rest of the world. 


We ask customers to be aware that deliveries may experience delays due to Custom Authorities and their control measures of important goods. A recent strengthening of control measures, introduced by Customs Authorities in Russia, may lead to significant delays in the processing of shipments. 

To ensure a quality service all orders are sent tracked using Royal Mail with overseas deliveries being passed on to the relevant delivery service once outside of the UK.  Please be aware that once your order leaves the UK tracking may not be available.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to help.

Typically Second Class will take 3-5 days from dispatch to delivery, 1st Class 1-3 Days.

Please note that we will not be able to amend orders that are made after 1pm during the week or over the weekend.

Whilst every effort will be made to ensure that all items shown are in stock, we offer no guarantee of availability and this electronic publication does not constitute an offer for sale.


Promotional Periods

During promotional periods, dispatch and delivery times may be extended to between 7 and 10 days due to exceptional levels of customer demand. However, most consignments will continue to be delivered within the normal time periods stated at checkout.


Gift Cards

Gift cards can be returned under the normal returns policy provided that they have not been used and are returned in a new and undamaged condition.


Cancellation and Returns

If you wish to cancel the contract and return the goods for a refund you must email info@katysboutique.co.uk with the details of the return, including the order number within 7 days following the date of delivery.

You must then post the garment/s back to us at the following address within 14 days of delivery. For the sake of clarity we take the delivery date to be the date recorded by Royal Mail tracking. You can view this using the tracking information we send with your order delivery details.

It is your responsibility to ensure goods are returned in the same condition they were sold and proof of postage is not deemed proof of delivery. We recommend using a tracked service.

IMPORTANT

You are entitled to an exchange or a refund within a 14 day period from the date of delivery. In the interests of fairness to all customers we are unable to extend or modify this period in individual cases however we may do so for all customers during times such as Christmas to allow for holiday periods.

  • We strongly recommend that you send all returns by recorded delivery to ensure that you have a record of return. You are responsible for the cost of returning any goods.
  • Due to the personalised nature of our products, garments may only be returned if they have not been worn (other than to try on over your own underwear), remain on the hanger if supplied, and have any point of sale swing tickets attached or are in unopened and original packaging. You have a duty of care to ensure all items are returned to us in the same original condition as they were received. If any item is returned damaged or incomplete, including packaging, it will net be eligible for a refund or exchange.
  • Where an item is supplied with a free gift or extra packaging any gift or extra packaging must be returned as part of the item.

  • Please note that ALL HOSIERY is classed as an "intimate item" and CANNOT be returned once opened.
  • Refunds will only be given where the garments have been returned to our address.  Original postage costs, paid by the consumer, will only be refunded when the full order has been returned and at the rate of 2nd Class postage. 
  • Please ensure that all corsets, slips, and waist cinchers are returned as received. Boned items should not be rolled or squashed as this will damage the garment and may mean the item is received by our warehouse in an unsaleable condition.
  • *** If returns are rejected, the garments will be destroyed and there will be no liability on the part of the company for refund of the cost of the goods or postage. ***
  • On the cancellation of a contract, any sum paid by the consumer will be repaid as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of cancellation.

  • Carriage costs will only be refunded when all items on the order are returned.  Carriage will not be refunded where there is only a partial cancellation of a contract and only some of the goods are returned.
  • Where an order originally qualifies for free shipping and a return is made that takes the original order value under the free shipping threshold then the shipping cost will be deducted from any refund due.
  • If you have received the goods before cancelling the contract, you will be under a duty to restore those goods to the supplier at your own cost and, in the meantime, to keep them and take reasonable care of them. This duty to take reasonable care ends if the consumer (at their own expense) sends the goods to the supplier. It is recommended that you retain proof of postage and delivery for all returned packages.
