RETURNS & REFUNDS
If for any reason, you are unhappy with your order, you can return your items within 14 days. Please note, Return Authorization Numbers (RAN) must be requested within 14 days of receiving your order from The Clothing Lounge
All items must be returned in their original condition via the steps outlined below. Please note due to hygiene reasons we cannot accept returns on jewellery and underwear. We will only accept swimwear if the protective hygienic strip is still in place and has not been tampered with. We also cannot accept returns of any sales items
Merchandise must not be worn, altered or washed and must be returned in its original condition with its tags still attached. Merchandise showing any sign of use will not be accepted and will be sent back to the customer at the discretion of The Clothing Lounge
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
1. Request a Returns Merchandize authorization (RMA) number within 7 days of receiving your package by emailing email@example.com stating your order number and the items that you wish to return.
2. You will receive an email: containing the RMA number, instructions and the return shipping label.
3. Fill out the Pro Forma invoice: that came with your order. If you are outside Europe it is extremely important to declare the goods as 'returned for refund goods' on the customs declaration as The Clothing Lounge will not be held liable for any import duties
4. Pack your items: using the original packaging provided
5. Book your collection: If the carrier on the label is UPS, you can either drop-off at a UPS location, or schedule a pickup. You can also choose another Courier service of your preference, but in this case we cannot reimburse you for the shipping fees associated with the return and cannot be held responsible if the parcel should have any issues during transit.
6. Email Notification: You will receive an email notification once your return has been received and processed. You will then receive a second automatic email once the refund is completed.
All international customers must pay for their goods to be returned unless otherwise stated
For speedy processing of the refund, please ensure that your returned items meet the conditions of our Returns Policy
If you've returned more than one order in the same parcel, please allow up to 72 hours for all returned items to be processed.
If you need any assistance with the returns procedure please contact our customer services team on firstname.lastname@example.org
