A Piperlime Story

For awhile now, I've been wanting a simple gold bracelet to accompany my MK gold watch.  I've searched high and low and finally found the perfect match!  I had to have the Kate Spade "Heart of Gold" bracelet:


Perfection right?  So I asked my lovely husband to get this for my birthday but to my disappointment, it was on back order, until about February.  Well, I figured I could wait and had not seen anything better...especially for the price.  

Several weeks went by and one day H got an email saying that our order had been canceled as they no longer had the product in stock.  WHAT??!  I was slightly perturbed that I had waited all that time for nothing, but no biggie...I would find it somewhere else, right?  Unfortunately, I searched and searched...and searched, but no luck!  Sadly, I decided to accept defeat and checked Piperlime.com one last time...just to make sure.  And there it sat: "in stock"...or so it said.  I didn't want to get my hopes  hope, but I decided to call--just to make sure.

The sales representative who answered the phone was SO nice and when I told her my story, she looked in their system and found out they did have it in stock!  She apologized profusely for the error...and offered a 20% discount plus free shipping!  YIPPEE!  I was super impressed with their service...I mean, I was just happy to be getting the bracelet after all!  I am definitely a fan...way to go Piperlime!

The bracelet came today and I love it!
The gold tones look great together and I think it dresses up the watch for the weekends!

And I really LOVE the way Piperlime packages their items!  Clearly I like green...


Had any good customer service experiences lately?  It's amazing how it can really make your day.

  1. Ohh I love love LOVE it! I have a hard time accesorizing mine because it is the rose gold one. I find the rose gold is usually way out of my budget. Any suggestions?
