    It’s really hard to choose, but I think Doodle Daisy’s my pick!

  • Yvonne Tarleton says:

    Simply adore Summer Cottage gorgous colour and timeless too.
    Very chic………:-)

    I’m sorry, but I have been really disappointed in the patterns recently. I don’t particularly care for any of the Spring or Summer 2012 patterns. I really loved Java Blue, though. I also like Boysenberry, Mocha Rouge, and Baroque. I hope Fall 2012 brings some patterns that I will like and want to purchase. Thank you.

      I agree with you. I like Rosy Posies from Spring 2012. But, I am not a fan of any of the Summer 2012 colors. I really hope they come out with the Camera Bag in the fall colors. I would be disappointed if I had to carry my DSLR around in a Summer 2012 color. I’d rather have the Camera Bag in the upcoming fall color Provincial. But, if I had to settle, Doodle Daisy is better than the ugly camera bag I have now.

    I love Summer Cottage! I got to see it in person this morning and the colors are beautiful and vibrant.

    I think there has been pattern turnover too often lately. So many look similar to fairly recent others. Don’t have time to afford/acquire all the pieces in one pattern before it is discontinued. I have nine different patterns and haven’t really liked one more than those I have since Purple Punch. Love my Capri Blue and Capri Melon, my Chelsea Green and Piccadilly Plum. Also have Nantucket Navy, Kensington, Simply Violet (but only a couple of pieces), and my all time favorite – Botanica! I have so many plastic containers of Vera that they are underneath 3 beds! Wish a new pattern would come up that I fell in love with. I love some of the “old” patterns, going back from before I had Vera as my only purses and totes. Maybe reviving some of those old favorites would be a good thing.

  • Marilyn says:

    Yay! These are just the happiest group of gals this summer! I don’t think I’ve ever looked more forward to a seasonal launch before. Great job, VB!

  • AnnetteH says:

    The Lime’s Up is just so fun and summery!

  • Sandra says:

    I really like the frame handbag. All the new patterns and colors are great but I guess my favorite is between Doodle Daisy and Summer Cottage. Great job.

  • Beverly says:

    I work at Leslie’s Hallmark in Ventura, CA and got to put on display all the new Summer 2012 Vera products. They are all so much fun and I got to see so many smiles of our customers as they looked at the new, happy patterns. We are ready for summer!
    Thank you, Vera!!

  • Melissa says:

    I’m a girly girl inside and I’ve always been fond of the pinks, so Priscilla Pink gets my vote. I still carry my Pinwheel Pink Lindsay! I’m thinking about the Clare, though.

  • Julie Stein` says:

    Pricilla pink will be seen on the run, oh what spring time fun!

  • Carol says:

    We are having unusually warm weather for N.E. Indiana and I am in the mood for everything spring and summer. My vote goes to summer cottage.

  • Jan says:

    I am loving priscilla pink! Also love spring’s rosie posies! So glad there are more pink patterns to choose from!!!

  • Patsy Smith says:

    Love all the new patterns! My favorite is Daisy.

  • Crystal says:

    Love them all but my fav is Doodle Daisy.

  • Kristina says:

    Either summer cottage or limes up!!

  • Vickie Sabey says:

    I really, really want to fall in love with a have-to-have pattern, so far none of the patterns fit that category. I would collect several pieces if the patterns were my taste. The Java blue is a great color combo but I don’t want blue. I think the pattern line needs to be brought up to date, knock our socks off with some have-to-have-that-one fabrics. I bought a mocha rouge weekender, I swear it glows in the dark! How do I exchange it or send it back? Love, Love, the design of the bags and the qualit, just really dislike almost all of the patterns

  • Carmela says:

    Lime’s Up and Pricilla Pink will be my choices this summer. Very cute video!

  • Michelle says:

    I love Doodle Daisy, especially the details, but the flowers and pattern are so large. I would prefer smaller flowers so the pattern would look better on purses and smaller bags. Lime’s Up is great, too.

  • Karen Siegel says:

    Summer Cottage and Doodle Daisy are my favorites.

  • Jeanne says:

    That was a tough decision – - – I voted for Doodle Daisy, but I also love Lime’s Up. Green is a very summery color and these two patterns are both beautiful. I will most likely purchase a piece or two in both patterns. Looking forward to a very pretty Vera Bradley summer!

  • Gibbly says:

    Sooo hard to choose just one. I love them all! But my favorites Doodle Daisy and Summer Cottage. My moms favorite Limes Up. Its going to be a great summer with all these cute new patterns!

  • Crystal says:

    In the video it shows a bag in The Lime’s Up that unzipped around the top. Does anyone know the name of this bag?? Please??

  • Becky Lo says:

    I was going to ask the same thing as Crystal! I’ve scoured the website and watched the video twice, what is the name of that bag? Is it for sale? I like the wide unzipped top and the nylon straps! Would love it in summer cottage or doodle daisy!

  • Jessica says:

    If Lime’s Up has the most votes… then why is summer cottage at the top of the blog?

  • Excellent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you are just extremely magnificent. I really like what you’ve acquired here, certainly like what you are stating and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it sensible. I cant wait to read far more from you. This is really a great site.

  • Jess says:

    Summer Cottage and Lime’s Up are my two favorites! Lime’s Up provides a fresh summer feel, and Summer Cottage makes any American holiday- like Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, etc…- more fun! So happy both of these patterns are on sale now!! Will be buying some Summer Cottage merch this weekend to celebrate!! : )
