Buying on-line from Belle La Vie

Whether you visit us in-store or buy from us on-line, you are a valued customer and we appreciate your business.  We want you to have a pleasant, easy shopping experience, and to be truly happy with your purchase.

We wrap all on-line purchases in tissue. Please let us know if it is a gift for someone, and we will wrap it, free of charge in our beautiful store paper.  We'll also add a gift tag with a personalised message from you (to be completed in the comments box on checkout).

Returns Policy

We hope you love what you’ve purchased from us, but we do understand that shopping online sometimes results in a purchase that isn't quite what you expected.


If you would like to return the product for a replacement, exchange or credit, please send it back to us within 14 days (you will need to pay the courier cost for this both ways - returning the product to us, and the courier costs for sending a replacement back to you.  Even if your original purchase was eligible for free shipping, it is only free for the original purchase). 


Provided that the product/s are in their original condition, unused, unwashed, and undamaged, we will replace, exchange or apply a store credit. Clothing must have the tags attached.  We will not accept any clothing when the tag has been taken off.


Sale Items


We do not offer replacement, exchange or credit on sale items (unless faulty)


Important note on shipping:  if your original purchase was over the free shipping threshold, and you would like to exchange or have a store credit issued, your replacement product is not eligible for free shipping (the free shipping was for the original purchase).  If your item was damaged, we will pay the shipping costs.


 Exchange credit notes/vouchers are valid for 3 months and can only be used on full price products in store (exchange vouchers or credits are not valid for on sale products or promotions).




Damaged, faulty or incorrect items


Our Belle La Vie team take great care in wrapping and checking your purchases to ensure our high standards are being met.  However, we know that sometimes things can go wrong.  If you do receive a damaged or incorrect item, please contact us immediately.


Please retain the damaged product and its packaging as we may need proof to claim the cost of the item and postage from the shipping company.


We will ask you to send the package back to us or send a photo (once assessed, we will refund the shipping costs to you) and assess the fault and either replace, repair or refund you. Should the replacement item be out of stock we will either offer a store credit, an exchange for another item, or a refund.


Return costs are at the expense of the customer and shipping costs will not be refunded (except in the case of damaged or where we have made an error).


If your product breaks or deteriorates in an unreasonable time (taken into consideration the product and it's value) through reasonable use, we will liaise with our suppliers and assess.  Please note:  You need to advise us as soon as possible (directly in store or via email and photos).

To make this as seamless as possible, we require a 50% deposit for any items we specifically order in for you.  

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer an exchange or store credit if you change your mind once the product arrives, so please choose carefully.  Of course if the product is damaged or faulty, we will seek a replacement for you.
