- Cancellation and Refunds Policy
Both the Client and ourselves have the right to terminate any Services Agreement for any reason, including the ending of services that are already underway. No refunds shall be offered, where a Service is deemed to have begun and is, for all intents and purposes, underway. Any monies that have been paid to us shall be refunded if we terminate the service.

Notification for instance, in person, via email, mobile phone ‘text message’, or any other means will be accepted subject to confirmation in writing. If you decided to cancel your order then 50% of the total cost will be charged up until the mock design process has started. After this time no refund will be issued. If you cancel during your delivery month but the mock design has not been started, 85% of the total cost will be charged. Cancellation after the delivery month will result in 100% of the cost being charged. In addition after the design is approved no responsibility will be taken by Lace and Love or refund given if the customer changes their mind or decides they don't like the shoes.
For clients moving their delivery date further out, the original delivery month will be counted for the above charges and not the new month unless that is sooner.
After base shoes have been agreed on, if you want to change the style then a £35 charge will apply on the Exclusive Package. On the VIP Package one style change is included, further style changes will incur the £35 charge.
Changes from the VIP and Exclusive to the Luxury package will incur a £25 charge to cover administrative expenses. If you have purchased our rush VIP service and wish to change to the Luxury package and still wish to have the rush service an additional £50 charge will be incurred.
Customers must notify us within 24 hours of receiving their order about any damage, fault or problems. After this time we do not except any reponsibility. Our designs on the shoes are all done by hand and whilst every care is taken to ensure embellishments are attached securely these can become unattached from time to time. Small beads or other embellishments may be lost or damaged if caught or snagged. Should this happen we are unable to offer a refund however we may be able to provide you with some replacement beads subject to availability.
Ready made non custom items may be returned for a refund within 14 days of receipt. These must be returned via a tracked, insured service paid for by the buyer. The buyer must notify us in writing before this period of the intended return. Items outside of this period will not be eligible for a refund. They must be returned in the original and unused condition.
Heel tips will wear down and occasionally come off. These should be replaced before damage to the main heel is caused by a good shoe cobbler. All shoes are coated with a stain and water repellant prior to being posted out. Whilst this helps against stains and water damage it will not stop it completely and care should still be taken. You can recoat your shoes periodically, taking care to cover any metal embellishments first. Shoes should be stored in cool, dry conditions and a place out of full sunlight. Futher general shoe care may be found online and is your responsibility for their general upkeep.
Unless agreed by us your order will be delivered to the address provided on your order at the time of purchase. We will use resonable efforts to deliver your order within the stated time however do not guarantee this time frame. Delayed replies to our emails, changing designs, delay in sending your shoes to us, changing shoe styles and/or changing packages will delay your completion date and we can't guarantee delivery by your required date. A delayed time in response or sending shoes by the client or any of the above scenarios, will not be relative to the delayed time your order will be completed. This will be subject to the current wait times and workload. If you are sending your own shoes to us, these will need to be with us a minimum of 6 weeks prior to the start of your delivery month. No refunds will be offered in this circumstance. We will not be liable for any delay or inability to deliver within the estimated lead times or postal delays or import charges imposed by your country.
While we try our very best to find the style of shoe in the colour you want it is not always possible. In this case our last option would be to dye to your desired colour. Only dyeable shoes can be selected for this option and 3 weeks extra should be allowed for dyeing. We will make a reasonable effort to have the shoes dyed in the colour of your choosing however colour can vary between different shoe fabrics. Dye can also be uneven over pleats, gathers and knots in the fabric. The small areas in the seams where glue may be present may not absorb dye as readily as the rest of the shoe. Shoes are dyed with a water soluble dye so could run or fade if they come into contact with water. We will coat your shoes with a water repellant to help protect against this but shoes should be coated again periodically ideally before each wear and by covering any embellishments. By agreeing to have your shoes dyed you are agreeing to these terms.
