That will help ensure we can avoid the time-consuming and expensive dance that is returns/exchanges.

Be sure to inspect your item upon arrival.  If there are any issues, please let us know right away so we can take care of you!

We offer refunds in the form of in-store credit if items are received back to us within 14 days of you receiving your purchase. If 14 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately, we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.

If you are anxious about exchanging for a size or color and know we sell out quick, shoot us an email at stephaniebluewillow@gmail.com and we don't mind holding your exchange for you until your return is processed!!

If your item is returned to us because it was sent to the wrong address or the address was undeliverable, it is not Blue Willow's responsibility to pay shipping to resend it.  If the address supplied to us is wrong, or your package is lost because of this, Blue Willow Boutique cannot be held responsible.   

• If you return an item that is not eligible for return, Blue Willow Boutique is not responsible for the shipping costs to get your item back to you. Your options would be: for us to charge you shipping to return your item to you or we keep the item and unfortunately can not issue you in store credit. If you have any questions on whether your item is eligible for a return, please contact us before you ship it back.
