Happy Holidays!

I hope the season has treated you well so far! This time of year has a tendency to fill me with anticipation. Gearing up for holiday parties, meals, and time spent with family and friends. Every year around this time Chic Sparrow shuts down shop for a week or two allowing the staff to enjoy quality time with their loved ones. This year we will be closed December 22nd through January 1st. 

That's not all!
Read on for new Mr. Darcy launch details and more.
Has it shipped yet?

When I find myself online looking for holiday gift ideas (or presents for me) my number one question has always been, will I get it in time?! Shipping times always vary based on many factors from location to shipping service or delivery method and all this assuming nothing goes wrong. I am not able to guarantee that you will receive your order by Christmas but here is what I can tell you. 

If your order is placed on or before December 8th it will be shipped on or before December 17th. This makes the 17th our last guaranteed ship date for 2018. Whereas I can guarantee we will ship your order before our shut-down if you place it on or before December 8th, I am NOT able to guarantee the order will arrive to you before Christmas.

Orders will most likely continue to be shipped after that point I simply cannot make any promises. If you are planning a Chic Sparrow gift surprise I recommend getting your order in right away. I always try to save time for the important things later anyway. Like snow angels, sugar cookies, and maybe just one more cup of cocoa. 

Holiday Turnaround Times

For holiday orders (cyber Monday, black Friday, and/or any order placed in December), we always ask for a full 15 business days to fulfill orders due to the business of the season. If for whatever reason it's going to be longer than that, you can expect a phone call or email ETA. We'll keep you in the loop! 

Many products will not be restocked until 2019. I will list some of these here.

  • Any sold out Mr. Darcy leathers
  • All Folios, A5 and A6 in any color
  • Claire from the Outlander Collection
  • Maverick, Dark Brown and Golden Brown
  • Hummingbird from the Mockingbird Collection

Launching New Colors

Thank you for staying with me! Now, as promised, how about some new Mr. Darcy colors? The week of December 10th is our goal for the launch of the latest additions to the Chic Sparrow Collections. In Mr. Darcy, we will be joined by Lady Catherine and Wickham. Lady Catherine is a coral shade and Wickham a tone of orange that over time patinas to a wonderful rust color. 

In the Pemberley Collection, these colors go by Honeysuckle (Lady Catherine) and Marigold (Wickham). 

These colors will also join the Odyssey Collection under the names Daphne and Perseus, formerly known as Persephone and Ares. 

Check back throughout the week of December 10th and be one of the first to see these new colors added to your collection!

In conclusion, here are some things to keep in mind: 

  • Customer service will be out of the office December 22nd - January 1st
  • Due to high order volume, please expect up to 15 business days for order fulfillment 
  • We cannot guarantee delivery by Christmas, but your chances are good if you place your order by December 8th
  • New leathers launch the week of December 10th

Cheers everyone. Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season!
