As spring started creeping in a few weeks ago, I took one look at my 6-year-old rain boots from Target and decided it was time for a change. I’ve heard really good things about Hunter rain boots but man oh man are they pricey. For a girl who waits on $10 sales from Shoedazzle, there was no way I’d drop $80 on a pair of rain boots. (And that’s on sale)
What is Zulily?
Zulily is an online retailer, that brings you all the fashion, home, toys, and basically anything you need for a fraction of the price. They have sales from major brands going off on a daily basis and are usually available for 72 hours.
How does Zulily offer such low prices?
After you make a purchase, they wait until the sale ends to place one bulk order. The item is then shipped to their warehouse in 8-10 days, after which they ship the item to you.
Back to my story…
Somehow I stumbled upon a brand called Joules on Zulily and was instantly in love with the patterns. I’ve never been a flashy person, but for some reason, floral prints just do it for me. Then I saw them… the Navy Botanical & Stripe Welly Rain Boot. I love how the combination of patterns and florals make these boots so boho.
Sometimes you see something that just speaks to you, whether it’s a yearly planner, an elephant figurine, or a pair of rain boots. Not only do they have an extensive selection of rain boots for Women, but they also have a kids line of rain boots with patterns just as unique, and matching clothing items.
So I got the Navy Botanical & Stripe Welly Rain Boot by Joules for myself and a dark blue with white stars pair for my 5-year-old daughter, which she picked out herself. I was so excited when they arrived but was unfortunately very disappointing when I tried them on, the button on the back that’s supposed to adjust the width of the boot in the back, was not glued very well and unsnapped as soon as I started walking.
Zulily Customer Service Review
I immediately contacted Zulily’s customer service, asking for a return shipping label. What I was told, I was not expecting. Zulily immediately refunded the cost of the boots (which were like $50), without asking me to ship them back, and gave me an additional $5 credit in my account for future purchases. I mean, bravo Zulily. Seriously.
So what did I do with these beautiful but defective boots? Superglue to the rescue!!! So now I have a really dang cute pair of rain boots I got for free and Zulily got a customer for life. The great thing about rain boots is that they are year-round shoes, whether it’s summer, winter, spring or fall – if it rains – you grab your rain boots. You can never go wrong with a pair of boho rain boots.
FYI – if you shop at Zulily through ebates, you get a percentage of your purchase back. The amount always changes but I’ve seen it go up as high as 15% cashback. That’s pretty awesome.
Does Joules Only Has Women’s Rain Boots?
Once you find a brand you love, it’s only natural to want to purchase more things from them. Luckily for me (and pretty much everyone else), Joules doesn’t only sell beautiful rain boots for women. They have a whole selection for kids with similar patterns and I couldn’t resist getting my daughter a pair of shorter rain boots – Navy with white stars and a pink sole. She picked them up herself and absolutely loves them.
Which was a life saver after the terrible experience we had purchasing a pair of rain boots from Amazon, that ended up being a Lilly of New York rain boots that broke after 3 days.
What I love about the Zulily Joules shop is that you can get this amazing brand for pretty much half the price as the joules home page, that you can check out here. Because if you can’t find what you are looking for on Zulily, chances are they probably have a much larger selection on their main home page.
Does Joules Only Sell Rain Boots?
Want more? Joules also have sweaters, dresses, flip flops, raincoats, PJs – you name it, they’ve got it. All with similar designs and patterns as their rain boots. I even found a pair of tennis shoes with the same exact pattern as my rain boots. [Enter elated face emoji here]. Just browsing through the Zulily Joules page I found some great examples of how Joules uses their patterns to create an entire fashionable look.
