So when I was shopping at my favorite Vera Bradley store the other day, I asked what would be included in their famous Summer sale coming up. This is everything they told me, so there's no way this information could be wrong, unless Vera makes a last minute decision, which they are known to do, example Doodle Daisy's retirement.
Colors Being Retired
Paisley Meets Plaid
This color barely made it a year. I think they were hoping for Very Berry Paisley success, but this one just didn't fit the bill.
I actually own a few things in this color, but with the speed they're retiring things now, it's no surprise this one is hitting the road.
I love this pattern, so I'm going to take full advantage of this sale and stock up for myself and Christmas gifts.
Just mentioning this color being retired starts a fight no matter where I go, lol. It is very beloved, but it's time for new and exciting things. There's speculation that this retirement could be limited, since La Neon Rose will be a limited release.
Styles Being Retired
This bag has been on the retirement list the past 2 sales, so I'll believe it when I see it.
There's always a lunch bag that's retired right before back to school time. I've always wanted this style, I just can't justify this purchase, the coolers are much more useful.
I've never once seen someone purchase this. They'll probably come out with something else for the laptops this fall.
Super Smart Wristlet
Much like the hipsters, there are so many wristlets Vera offers right now, so I guess they decided they needed to retire the least successful one.
I know a few people in particular that will be sad by this retirement, but hey, grab it on sale. ;-) I personally, have never found much use for this bag, just a tad too small for me.
This is a great bag, and it will be sad to see it go.
I've look at his bag before and it does not seem functional to me one bit. I've also never seen anyone buy this bag.
Quick Swipe ID
While it was a great idea, most people need room for more than one card.
We weren't sure this was going to be released in the Summer 2013 colors, so it's no surprise it won't be available for Fall.
UPDATE: So it seems, the rumors are true...Provencal is getting axed!! Baroque will be around a little while longer. Thanks for everyone updating me, I'm sorry I was so defensive, but I wanted to be sure to have the correct information, and my stores were telling me what they knew, which was Baroque was being retired. They were updated over the past few days, so I have to go off of what they give me. Thanks to you all for your support, and for continuing to read!! Love you guys!!
