ACCEPTANCE OF DELIVERY
We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you.

Our delivery agents (being for the time being DHL and Royal Mail) can deliver to certain destinations without collecting a signature. If this option applies to your delivery address, you can update your preference on the shipping page at checkout before proceeding to purchase. Please note, that if no signature is collected, you agree to our Terms and conditions and, confirm that Lucan Fashion Limited can leave your package(s) outside the premises at the shipping address provided by you without obtaining a signature for proof of delivery and take full responsibility for any loss or damage that may occur. On occasion, DHL may refuse to deliver your order if they are of the opinion that the shipping address is considered to be unsafe.
Lucan Fashion Limited insures each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to your specified delivery address. You will own the goods on and from the later of the point in time when: (a) we receive payment in full, or (b) we deliver the goods to you.
If you receive a purchase and, within 14 days of receipt, would like to exchange it for either another size or a different product, you have two options:
- If the replacement item you wish to receive is available on the website you can purchase the replacement item and send the item you no longer want back to us for a refund following the process outlined below under “Returns”. Please return the item in the original box, securely covered or wrapped. It must not have been used and be in its original packaging with all tags and tickets still attached, and showing no signs of having been worn. Where items such as manufacturer tags, special packaging (including original shoe boxes, internal packaging and dust bags) are included with your purchase these must be returned along with your purchase as they constitute a part of the goods supplied
- Alternatively, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to allow us to establish if the replacement product is available. If it is, we will then be happy to put it on hold until we receive the original product returned to us in the original box securely covered or wrapped as detailed above.
Once we have received the returned product we will dispatch the replacement product and, where appropriate, make any additional charge or refund to the credit or debit card used for the original purchase.
If you wish to cancel an order before you have been notified that it has been dispatched please call us immediately on 07855776045 or email us at email@example.com and we will halt dispatch organise for a full refund as soon as is reasonably possible.
Please note that as we aim to ship all orders where possible on the day of receipt of your order if your order has already been dispatched you can still cancel your order but you will have to follow the procedure below for returns once you have received your purchase.
If you receive a purchase and, within 14 days of receipt would like to return it for a refund to you less the cost of our delivery and payment processing fees, we are happy to do so, as long as your purchase is returned to us in perfect condition.
Please complete the returns note that accompanied your purchase and place this, along with your purchase, in the original box which should be securely covered or wrapped and return to us at the following address:
Flat 2 Hanover House
St John’s Wood High Street
The purchase you are returning will be refunded so long as it has not been used, is in its original packaging, has all of the tags and tickets still attached and shows no signs of having been worn. Where items such as manufacturer tags, special packaging (including original shoe boxes, internal packaging and dust bags) are included with your purchase these must be returned along with your purchase as these constitute a part of the goods supplied. Refunds will not be made where these items are not returned to us.
For your own protection you must return the package to us using a service that provides tracking and requires a signature upon receipt to ensure that we have received your return. In addition, we advise that you should take out sufficient insurance to cover the full cost of the purchase that is being returned in the event that your return is lost in the postal system.
Please retain the postage receipt showing the tracking information as you will require this to trace your package should the returned purchase not be received by us. Please note that the cost of returning your purchase is your responsibility and will not be added to the refund of your returned goods.
Refunds will be authorised once the returned purchase has been inspected and normally should take place within 1-2 working days of us receiving the returned item. Refunds will be made to the card originally used for your purchase.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if any of your purchases have been delivered without Lucan Fashion Limited tags. All returns should be requested before you send your item(s) back to us to allow for easy identification and prompt processing. Unidentified returns will be returned to the sender.
FAULTY OR DAMAGED GOODS
Goods are faulty if they are received damaged or where a manufacturing fault occurs within one month of purchase. Items that are damaged as a result of normal wear and tear are not considered to be faulty.
If your item is faulty when you receive it, you can return it for a full refund. Simply request a return through your account and send the faulty goods back to us within 14 days of receiving your order, with the tags attached.
If you discover a fault after this time, but within one month of purchase, you can still return it. Where possible, we will offer to repair the item. If it cannot be repaired and the same product is still available, we will send you a replacement. If the same product is no longer available, you are entitled to a full refund.
If you would like to exchange a faulty item instead of obtaining a refund, please be aware that we can only replace it for the same product in the same size, subject to availability.
We offer a flexible returns policy to make your online shopping experience even easier. We do monitor the number of returns made by customers, and continued returns will be flagged and potentially refused at our discretion or lead to the closure of your Lucan Fashion Limited account.
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on Lucan Fashion Limited. However, as computer monitors vary, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour will be completely accurate.
