*** There may be duty/import charges which you will be responsible for. Unfortunately we cannot pay these charges nor advise you on their cost.

All orders will be sent out via Royal Mail and UPS will require a signature upon delivery. If we receive your order before 3pm, Monday to Friday we will dispatch it the same day. If we receive your order after 3pm, we will try our very best to dispatch it that day, but during busy periods this may not be possible so orders will be dispatched the next day. At present we have paused our shipping service to Europe due to the impact of customs and duty charges.

If you order after 3pm on a Friday, your goods will be dispatched the following Monday (excluding Bank Holidays). Next day delivery orders placed on a Friday before 3pm will arrive on or before the following Monday. Saturday delivery is not guaranteed. Any orders placed on a Bank Holiday will be delivered 2 working days later.

Order tracking is not available for Royal Mail deliveries, so please wait the full 5 working days for your delivery to arrive. Your order can be delivered anytime between 7am and 9pm and a signature may be required on receipt. We are unable to re-direct orders once they have been placed with us.

Whilst we will endeavour to ensure that this estimated delivery time is met, we cannot accept any liability for late deliveries which are due to circumstances outside of our control (i.e. postal strike, extreme weather conditions). We are happy to deliver to a work or other chosen address given when placing order.

Please note that during Royal Mail Strike periods we will use an alternative courier provider to ensure your order isn’t delayed where possible.

If you are local and would like to collect your item/s from The Women’s Society Boutique you may select this option at the checkout. Items can then be collected during store opening hours within 7 days of placing the order.
