  1. My favs are the Marina—I had an Aunt Marina!!!—and the Sun Valley. The other two colors are a bit too sweet and pastel for my taste. But you must try to have something for everyone. Still trying to add some of your earlier selections to my ever expanding collection—and convince my husband why I need “one of every color/pattern”!!! Happy Spring to all at VB—appreciate your hard work in bringing us such pretty items!!!

    My daughter’s name is Lilly Belle, spelled differently but VB is my favorite and I couldn’t be more excited to own a print with the same name as my first born!!!

  3. dotmoody says:

    Yay, more fringe scarfs and beach towels!!! :)

  4. Lisa Lorentz says:

    I love using Vera Bradley prints for the banner on my Facebook page. Thanks for posting the desktop art!

    I’m looking forward to the debut of the Summer patterns! I love Tutti Frutti and Lilli Bell! I was sad when the Boysenberry pattern was discontinued, but Tutti Frutti has a paisley pattern…and I just love the mint green background! Now, just to decide what styles to buy! Thanks VB for bringing your customers some very pretty Summer 2013 patterns!!! :)

    Love Lilli Bell, Marina Paisley, and Tutti Frutti patterns! I got my VB birthday in the mail last week & will be at your outlet store in 2-1/2 weeks to spend it. Hoping to get something fun in a new summer pattern.

  7. Kirsten says:

    Great new patterns! Can’t wait to see what they look like on ‘Weekender’.

    Can not wait for the summer ’13 release!! Girlfriends trip to Orlando to the “Siggy” store and outlet to shop to our hearts delight. We have great retailers here in Jacksonville, FL, but I feel like every Vera lover should enjoy a new release at a Signature store at least once!! They (sales associates) don’t seem to mind the neurotic behavior some fans have about pattern placement, undecisiveness of bag choice, etc., LOL!!

    Also they have TONS of merchandise in stock more so than some of the small retailers. Sad to see that the Mesh Totes didn’t make it for the summer patterns, would have been nice to have a summer pattern beach-style bag.

  9. Nevi says:

    Awesome!!!! Just yesterday I went and bought a bunch of summer cottage stuff!

  10. Melanie says:

    I love every single print! Those look awesome! I can’t wait to see them in real life.

  11. I have never received my VB birthday gift even though I signed up 2 years ago.

    • Jana Crawford says:

      Maybe they don’t have your street address. Or else you haven’t purchased anything in 2 years so it didn’t get mailed.

    • Tricia M. Campbell says:

      Some Signature or outlet stores are most courteous in honoring the birthday discount if you purchase at their store during your birth month, you have to show ID with your birthday to get it. Hope that helps some.

  12. Robin says:

    This is a season where I will have a hard time choosing. I love all of them although the Marina Paisley might be the front runner. Can hardly wait to see them up close!

  13. Ellie says:

    How do you get the VB birthday gift?

    • Ellie says:

      Even though it’s spring—I prefer a darker color background

    • Ramona says:

      SIgn up at the store with your information

    • Tricia M. Campbell says:

      I think most sign-up to receive e-mails on the VB.com or register on the same website to have an account on Vera Bradley.com to initate the birthday cards (usually $20 off of $20 or more item). Some Signature or outlet stores are most courteous in honoring the birthday discount if you purchase at their store during your birth month, you have to show ID with your birthday to get it.

  14. Hannah says:

    I love these designs!!! They are beautiful!

  15. Katy says:

    You are too too expensive! I learned my lesson once I ordered and then the shipping was added……for something that reminds you of a diaper bag??? Except the solid blacks and navy blues…the one solid black I ordered, I have enjoyed, but when I think of what the total cost was….I want to kick myself!
    Plus when you are in public and you see the bags on someone, they usually look dirty,dingy and limp……too much money to end up looking this way!!!!!
    No reason for your product to be so expensive….especially for the lack of quality and lack of durability. I know you have followers, but ladies open your eyes!

    • Bria says:

      Are you serious? They may be expensive but the quality is great!!! My husband purchased a VB diaper bag or me when I was pregnant 7 years ago and it still looks brand new. If you take care of your VB bag and know to care or it then its going to last!!!!

    • Lisa says:

      wow thats kinda harsh i have the island blooms bag got it for christmas have been carrying it now 4 months and its neither dirty dingy or limp . it s colors are fresh and vibrant and I get compliments everywhere I go

    • Cindy says:

      I rarely pay retail for my VB – either get it at the outlet or buy pre-loved (on eBay, or even church/estate/garage sales). I have never had trouble with fraying, bad zippers or anythig else, even with bags 10 yrs old. I’m quite satisfied with the design features, as well as workmanship & materials; I think they’re a great value. If my bag gets dirty from use, which is to be expected, it goes in the washer & hangs overnight to dry, and comes out bright & fresh as new.

    • Karen says:

      I think this is a rather mean comment. I have had bags for years that are in great shape. Did you really think people are going to change their minds with this the comment you wrote? I also haven’t seen worn out and dingy bags on someone else.

    • Kim Dossett says:

      I am a VB LOVER, but. . . do agree somewhat. I do have some bags/purses that I have washed due to looking gringy and they start to fade ~ especially blues/pinks. But, I realize that they aren’t PERFECT and never pay full price for anything. I, too, watch for sales, rummages, HSN, Ebay, local FB personal sales, etc.! Have been a fan for many years along with my daughter, mom, sis-in-laws, nieces, and many friends! Thanks VB!

  16. Jody Parrish says:

    I love love love Vera..I’m an addict and i have feel in love with the miller bag and the hipster, alone with the wristlet:)

  17. Pam says:

    /__love sun valley! unique and very cool!

  18. Teresa Young says:

    I am loving the mint green Tutti Frutti!

  19. Kim Carey says:

    How do you get the VB birthday gift. I have been signed up for emails for a long time as well

    • Lisa Samson says:

      You sign up in a retail store. They need your street address to mail it and it’s a card for $20 off any purchase.

  20. Karen says:

    Would anybody besides me like to see some of the totes lined with a waterproof lining to prevent a spill from ruining the entire bag? Cosmetic bags are nice, but sometimes I just need a tote! Wet beach towels and wet anything from the pool and beach will leak through. Even wet sand sometimes doesn’t wash out.

  21. Chris Braun says:

    Karen, check out the baby bags. They have waterproof linings and are very attractive — don’t need to be just for baby stuff.

  22. gladys costa says:

    Love, love VB bags. For those of you who think they’re too expensive, check out the sales! They have some great bargains. I have bought many for my grandaughters as well as myself. Choosing the colors and patterns are the most fun. I have never had a bag look grungy or cheap. They are lightweight and well made. Wish there were more in warmer colors esp orange.

  23. Michelle Renée Pullen says:

    Please do another REAL red… My “frankly Scarlet” things are getting pretty old!

  24. Christina says:

    I love Vera Bradley! I already am crazy for purses and VB just ups the anty! Can’t wait for the new colors! Love the Tutti Frutti one!!

  25. Staci m says:

    Love marina paisley and Lilly so pretty

  26. Elizabeth C. says:

    I would love if Vera did a celestial pattern- a dark blue background with stars and with moons on the border. I would also love if they did a pattern like Plum Petals but with the flowers being pink and the background being blue/turquoise. I would love that! Thanks!

  27. Maia says:

    Love the new colors! Sun Valley is my favorite.

  28. Adelaide R. says:

    These are by far my favorite colors! Thanks Vera!

  29. LaniJoy M. says:

    Hooray for Islamorada! Husbands hometown! :) makes me miss the summer sun and sand. I think the tutti frutti and sun valley will do nicely in my Vera collection :)

  30. Tricia says:

    Sorry Sylvia Slack I did not attend Peabody.

  31. Heather A says:

    Finally! A season I like every color. I think your advertising needs updating (ha-always something to pick on- this is just me, but the videos are so goofy and too silly – maybe a little slower, and more focused on showing us the patterns not people running around flinging their bags in the air – who does this? The spring video and ads look like Victorias Secret! Esp the ones with the sprinklers in back! Ha! Don’t you love the haters. One in every group eh. Well, it’s a COMMENT, right! Go ahead yall- chime in.

    • Catherine says:

      My daughter & I were laughing about the same thing! Who frolicks in the water with a handbag? Ha! Love the bags, though! :)

  32. Sonu says:

    Sun valley is Wonderful..

  33. Brianne D. says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE tutti frutti!!!!!!! My bday is on march 22 and I’m SO excited for the new colors to come out so I can get a bag in tutti frutti for my birthday!!!!!! Wish they could come out sooner!!!

  34. Jennifer says:

    Love Lilli Bell and Tutti Frutti!!! The last round of colors were bleck! thank you for the great new lively colors cannot wait :-)

  35. Can I decorate my house in tutti frutti?! Oh my HOW CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. Cause there’s a place in the sun
    Where there’s hope for ev’ryone
    Where my poor restless heart’s gotta run
    There’s a place in the sun
    And before my life is done
    Got to find me a place in the sun

  37. Denise says:

    I love tutti Frutti. Lilli Bell is also very nice. I’d love one of the new styled wristlets in one of these.

  38. I actually like what you have acquired here, really like what you’re saying and the way in which you say it.
