Why is it " Allez, lève-toi! " ? (Vous or tu?)

I am confused by this sample imperative sentence.

Shouldn't it be Va,  lève-toi!

This question relates to:
French lesson "Forming affirmative commands with reflexive verbs (L'Impératif)"

Hi N,

"Allez" used in this way is immutable and means "come on".

Thanks! I encounter this one all the time and it's always puzzled me. Thanks also for regularly responding to people's posts.
