Once you have placed your order, we will send you an email acknowledging the exact details of your order, providing you with a payment reference and the value of your order that will be debited from your credit/debit card .This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from Suzannah.

Unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order in accordance with the Returns policy set out in section 3b below, our acceptance of  your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place when you receive an email from us notifying you that we have dispatched the Items ordered by you.

and date of sending of the email, which time and date is specified on the email. The
deemed time and date of receipt by you shall apply regardless of whether, for reasons
outside our control, you have not received that email.

All new orders are deemed separate and each is treated individually.

Purchases may be delivered to addresses other than the billing address given by the card holder, for example as with the case of a gift being purchased and addressed to a friend, as a security precaution, an e-mail and a copy of the invoice will be sent to the card holders registered e-mail address and home address, and we will require a signature upon delivery for all goods shipped.

3b Returns

Customer satisfaction is always our top priority, and as such we handle each query on an individual basis to the best of our ability. While we hope that you are delighted with your order, if you are not perfectly satisfied with your goods we will happily offer you a full refund or exchange.

We must stress that in order to receive a refund or exchange, the item(s) must be unworn and in perfect condition, with all the labels attached and in the original packaging. Please follow the steps below:

Contact us (on the details below) within 48 hours of receiving your order. The simplest way to return a product to us is by using Special Delivery Royal Mail. This service is simple, and has a tracking number. We will refund you for this postage cost to return a product .

DO NOT return the product with simple first class mail or recorded delivery as there is no guarantee, record or insurance.

If you are unable to get to a post office, we can organize a courier to pick up from your work place or home. In this instance please seal the box well ( as it arrived), as the service we used is with an overnight carrier.

We can only issue refunds or exchanges on items that are shipped back to us within 14days of receipt. All correctly returned items will be only credited to the account used to originally purchase the items, less any extra taxes, import duties or initial shipping charges incurred.  

With exchanges, your new item(s) will be shipped to you as soon as we receive your returning package and any additional payment which may be required.
