Il elle envoie deux milliers de roses

Shouldn't 'elle' be used instead of 'lui' for 'He sends her' in the above example?

This question relates to:

Bonjour Terry, Elle is a subject pronoun, as in Elle est intelligente, or a stress pronoun, as in C'est pour elle. In the sentence "He's sending her roses," her is an indirect object pronoun, and the third person singular indirect object pronoun - whether masculine or feminine - is lui. See our lesson: Replacing people with lui, leur = him, her, them (indirect object pronouns)
