Why is it "Envoie-la-vous" not "Envoie-vous-la?"

Bonjour, 

Why is it "Envoie-la-vous" not "Envoie-vous-la?" Aren't me/te/nous/vous always placed before le/la/les? Merci.

Hi,

In this case no, as if it was 'send it to me' it would be -

envoie-la-moi

Send it to us is -

envoie-la-nous  

As it says in the lesson -

"Direct object pronouns le/la/les are placed before indirect object pronouns moi/toi/lui/nous/vous/leur in the imperative".

 

Hope this helps!
