Terms & Conditions
We can only send out one communion dress per customer at a time so choice orders are not available.
Placing an Order
As soon as you have placed an order via our website, you should receive an automated email acknowledging receipt of your order and a separate receipt for your payment. If you do not receive this then either your order has not gone through, you mistyped your email address when you registered or the email has gone into your spam or trash folder. If you have any problems retrieving these emails, please let us know.
We do endeavour to keep our website up to date as to stock availability but occasionally an item will be out of stock. If there are any problems with your order then we will either telephone or email you as soon as possible to allow you either to cancel the order or make changes. We reserve the right to cancel any order in the event of suspected fraud. No contract for sale exists until we despatch the goods to you.
As these are special order items customers are limited to one communion dress per child at one time. We are unable to send out multiple dresses for you to choose from. If you want to try on a selection of dresses please make an appointment to visit us.
We accept most of the usual credit and debit cards via our secure online payment facility. Please note that no card payments can be taken over the telephone. You will be transferred to a secure site for the taking of your payment online; please note that we do not have access to your card details at any time.
If you do not have a credit card or debit card account we may be able to accept payment by cash, personal cheque or postal order by prior arrangement.
VAT is currently not chargeable on any of our girls' dresses or other clothing items. VAT is charged on non-clothing items and is included in the price you pay at the current rate of 17.5% which will increase to 20% from 4 January 2011.
If ordering from outside the EU we will attach a customs label to your parcel and you will be responsible for the payment of any import tax and value added/sales tax in your country plus any post office handling charge.
Postage and Packing
For UK deliveries (including BFPO and Channel Island addresses) a flat charge is made to cover postage and packing. Parcels will be sent by either second class recorded delivery post or by courier (Interlink). For packages sent outside the UK they will be sent "International Signed For" so that they can be tracked and proof of delivery obtained. Some European parcels will be sent by courier also.
For European and Rest of World deliveries we also levy a flat charge but reserve the right to increase this amount if the postage would far exceed this sum. If this is likely to occur we will email you in advance to obtain your prior agreement.
The postage amount is specified in the top right hand corner of this website and may vary from time to time.
If special delivery is given as an option then there is a 2 kilo limit for the weight of the parcel.
If any item is returned to us undelivered or uncollected you will be responsible for any postage charges arising from its re-sending.
Please note that we used second class post as standard and you need to allow 5 working days to receive your parcel from the date of despatch. If you order before 11am on a working day, we will post the same day. If it is after 11am we will post on the next working day. We can provide a best estimate of delivery times upon request but cannot offer any guarantees. If the delivery date is critical, please advise us and we may be able to send the package by Courier or Special Delivery at an additional cost so that you get guaranteed next day delivery and can track the package.
When you receive your order, the package will contain a Returns Form. This is not an invoice but it should be retained in case you need to return the goods for any reason.
Your order will normally be sent out to you within the timescale stipulated from time to time in the top right hand corner of this website (except where the dress description specifies a different timetable).
If this timetable cannot be adhered to we will email to let you know when you place your order and give you the opportunity of cancelling it.
You may be required to sign for all parcels.
There are two alternative returns procedures. The first is our own returns procedure which goes above and beyond the scope of the statutory procedure. The second is the statutory procedure pursuant to The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations. Please note that the latter can only be used if cancelling the entire contract within 14 days of receiving the goods; it also does not apply if you are making only a partial return of your order or outside the UK.
1. Our Returns Policy
You may return an item within 28 days of receipt, provided it is in its original condition, has not been worn or washed, is in its original packaging, free from odours and has all tags attached.
To return an item you will need to return it to us with the Returns Form which is inside your parcel or if you have mislaid this, please enclose a note with your order number (on your confirmation email) name, address and telephone number.
The address for returns is:
Just Dresses Limited, Returns Department, 48c St John’s Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN4 9NY.
Please note that you will have to pay for postage for your returns parcel. It is your responsibility to ensure that the parcel reaches us safely and you may wish to use recorded or special delivery as appropriate. A proof of posting will be issued by the Post Office free of charge on request.
Upon receipt of the returned items in the condition described above we will refund your money in full less the original postage and packing charges (subject to your statutory rights).
Any items returned to us which are not in the condition described above will be sent back to you at your own expense. We will not accept returns of items that have been damaged in transit because they were incorrectly packaged. If you have not paid the correct postage on a returned parcel resulting in us having to make a payment to the Post Office, then we will deduct the amount paid from the refund due.
If you are returning the item because it is faulty or has been misdescribed please email us first describing the problem. If you have a valid claim then we will refund the postage and packing costs to you as well.
These conditions are without prejudice to your general consumer rights when different returns periods may apply for faulty goods. Please note the washing instructions on the garments and observe the temperature limits.
For damaged items that have already been worn, we reserve the right to have the item repaired or issue you with a credit note.
