5. What happens if an item(s) is found to be out of stock after my order has been placed?

All orders are dispatched as a single delivery so if an item is missing from your order then unfortunately it means it is not available in our warehouse. You will only be charged for items that are dispatched. If your order is for a single item, then you will not be charged for the item or the delivery. We aim to contact you as soon as possible to let you know that your order has experienced a shortage. We are also happy to help source any missing items from one of our stores at your request.

Yes. Enter the code into the "promotional code" box on your basket page. The value of the promotion will automatically be deducted from your shopping bag sub-total. Promotions are not available in conjunction with any other offers. Promotions are often not available on sale items, so please check the terms and conditions supplied with the discount.

8. How do I know my order has been submitted successfully?

You will receive a confirmation email detailing items purchased, and total amount spent. If for any reason you do not receive an email, check your junk folder to make sure it isn't there. For any further help, please contact our Customer Care team on [email protected]

Unfortunately we are unable to add items to an order once it has been placed.

10. What is the Card Verification Value (CVV)?

The CVV is a 3 or 4 digit number embossed or imprinted on the signature panel on the back of Visa and MasterCard cards and on the front of American Express cards. This code is used to validate your purchase and as an extra security measure to ensure that you have access and/or physical possession of the credit card itself. Your order cannot be fully processed without a valid Security Code. Once your order has been processed, your Security Code will not be held on file.

11. Am I charged for the items as soon as I order them?

14. Do your stores stock all the items that are available online?

Whilst we would love to stock every item within our collection in each store, this is not always possible. Some of our stores are dedicated solely to clothing, others to shoes, with the majority of stores stocking a range of clothing, shoes and accessories.

Alternatively, place an order online.

If you would like to add details to your shipping information, such as a request to leave goods with a neighbour, please email [email protected] with the details and they will pass them on to the courier.

No, we can only send them to one address. However, you can always submit multiple orders with a different address for each, but you will have to pay the delivery fee for each order.

8. If part of my order is out of stock, do I pay an extra delivery charge when it is delivered to me?

All orders are dispatched as a single delivery so if an item is missing from your order then unfortunately it means it is not available in our warehouse. You will only be charged for items that are dispatched. If your order is for a single item, then you will not be charged for the item or the delivery. We aim to contact you as soon as possible to let you know that your order has experienced a shortage. We are also happy to help source any missing items from one of our stores at your request.

9. What do I do if my order hasn't been delivered after the specified time?

Late deliveries could be due to a number of reasons. The first step is to check the tracking code you received on your dispatch email. If your item has left our warehouse and you feel it's severely overdue, please email us on [email protected] with your order reference number. Our Customer Care Team is available between 9am - 6pm (GMT), Monday to Friday.
