Vera Freebie

Introducing Vera Bradley's new Frill line: sleek texture with laminated fabrics and trims, patent details and a fun logo pull. Vera has taken the inside lining of Fall's three new colors (Blue Rhapsody, Carnaby, and Pirouette) and put it on the outside for a fun twist on the season's new patterns. The laminated fabrics are soft (not stiff!) and perfect for keeping clean and dry, regardless of the Michigan weather. With a variety of fresh styles to go with the updated patterns, Frill represents a whole new look for Vera Bradley.

From July 20 - August 3, catch the fever for Frill with our free Frill Book Cover. Sized to fit most textbooks, these recyclable paper book covers are only available while quantities last. And it's yours with any Vera Bradley purchase.

Our Favorite Things

Top on the list of Meme’s Favorite Things--for giving or for using at home -- are Caspari’s Crepe Paper Placemats.

Environmentally friendly, these placemats are made of recycled kraft paper which has been coated with a dry wax so they can be wiped clean with a damp cloth and used over & over. (Meme’s still using 4 from her original pack!). Packaged 12 to a pack and available in a variety of colors, these placemats coordinate with our candles, plates, & napkins and are great for both casual or more formal occasions! Try the Natural Color Placemats now at 50% off--while supplies last!
