Today is the Day! Spring 2012 is Here!
The day has finally arrived. The Spring 2012 collection is now available! Head on over to VeraBradley.com or even QVC.com to check out the new colors and styles. If you want a place to discuss the new collection, I created an event on facebook where you will be be able to post about your thoughts on the new collection and even post photos of anything you purchase. Click here to check it out and join the discussion. If you are going to be shopping online, I highly recommend Ebates so that you will get cash back on your purchases! VeraBradley.com and QVC.com are just a couple of retailers that sell Vera Bradley and are on Ebates...check Ebates for a complete list. You can click here to sign up or log in. I am hoping to make it to the store Friday after work to check it out! Happy Shopping!
Is the pleated tote going to be discontinued? They don't have it in the new prints on vb.com! I'm not sure I'll buy any more Vera (at least not handbags) if it is - that's the only purse model I like.ReplyDelete
Yes, the Pleated Tote has been discontinued...fingers crossed that they are going to restyle it and it will be back in the Summer!ReplyDelete
Oh no! So sad :(Delete
Hi- just wondering, since I'm new to Vera: I really love that sweet pleat tote on QVC, but I don't really love any of the prints- do you think the tote might become a new vera bag that will be available in the upcoming seasons in the new prints, or is this a one time QVC special only that will be discontinued? Thanks :o)ReplyDelete
It's hard to say. The 3-Pocket Tote never showed up as a regular VB item, it was only available as a special item on QVC. But the cinch tote that was available as the special item on QVC last time looks an awful lot like the new Laura.Delete
Thanks so much for that info :o)Delete
I just got back from our Vera store. The new colors are so much better in person. I bought the Stay Tuned in Island Blooms. I was one of the first 10 people so I got a free gift too. Also in Island Blooms. Score! The gift looks like a really small coin purse. Any ideas what the name of it is? Think they will sell them?ReplyDelete
Do all stores selling Vera have the free gifts to distribute, or does it need to be a Vera store?Delete
It's probably the button-up coin purse, I've gotten a couple of them as a promotional item at the different season launches. I don't remember seeing them at the store today as a giveaway, and I've never seen them on sale as a regular item. On the other hand I got a free tech case, so I can't complain.Delete
The Vera store I went to isn't a Signature/flag ship store. It's a gold store. They carry almost everything there. I love it. It saves me from running an hour to our nearest Vera store. They were offering a free gift with any Vera purchase. I didn't know what I got until I got home. They had it wrapped up.Delete
The free gift looks almost like the kiss lock coin purse but much smaller.
Thanks for the info. I'll need to make plans to try a gold store next time new patterns are released. The closest Vera store is 4 hours away. It's only 90 minutes to a Vera outlet, but I don't believe that they participate in promotions. At least that's the way I'm interpreting the fine print on one of the promotions I was interested in.Delete
They are also discontinuing Squared Away.. another of my favorite bags, along with the Pleated Tote. :-(ReplyDelete
Why do they keep getting rid of all the larger handbags??
I was told the squared away wasn't selling well. I think VB is trying to cater to a younger demographic who like the smaller purses and wristlets.Delete
From my sleuthing, I think I figured out what is going to retire next!ReplyDelete
Perfect Pocket Tote
Curling Iron Cover
I am really liking the Strap Wallet and how it would be perfect to take to Disney World, but I told myself no because I already got the Concert Clutch Crossbody a few months ago for Disney, and that is plastic coated, so if it rains I am ok. But we will see if I get anything when I go to the Vera Bradley section in one of the stores at our mall tomorrow! I think I like Rosy Posies, but I will definitely have to see it in person to be sure. It kind of reminds me of Raspberry Fizz, which I really like! I wish I lived closer to a REAL Vera Bradley Store, though! We have a "nook" as we call it, and it doesn't always have everything.
I am still in love with Mocha Rouge, though!
has the Maggie been discontinued as well? I wanted it in the Very Berry Paisley but cannot find it on the VB.comReplyDelete
