  2. Specify the reason for the return by providing the specific code (as detailed in the Return Form)
  3. Make sure there are no pins or staples embedded in any item of clothing you are returning

Are There Any Limitations to the Talbots Return Policy?

Yes—not all products can be returned. The eligibility depends on what they are, how they were purchased, and their condition. You may not return items that meet any of the following criteria:

  • Products marked as “Final Sale” when purchased
  • Worn or washed clothing
  • Opened or used items, such as candles or fragrances
  • Gift cards

Does Talbots Offer Refunds?

You may qualify for a full refund provided you meet a few specific conditions. If you return an item within 60 days of the purchase, you are entitled to a full refund to the original payment method. You will only receive merchandise credit if you originally bought the product with a gift card or received it as a present.

How Long Does It Take To Receive a Refund?

Refunds for purchases made with a credit card will be issued immediately and will only be subject to delays resulting from the processing performed by your bank. It may take two to four weeks for the refund to appear on your bank statement. If you bought the item with cash or a check, Talbots will issue a refund in the form of a corporate check within seven to ten business days.

Do You Need a Receipt?

If you lost the receipt for an item you want to return, you may be eligible for merchandise credit. You must provide a government-issued photo ID to return a product without a receipt. To qualify, the item must meet the following two criteria:

  1. Purchased within 60 days of the return
  2. With its original tags

How Do Returns Affect Style Points?

Talbots credit card holders who return items will have their Style Points deducted in equal measure to the refund. For example, returning an item purchased for $100 will result in a deduction of 100 Style Points.
