Take 20 with Anna

If your list of goals for 2015 includes “get moving,” you’re certainly not alone. The spike in fitness pacts on Facebook and lack of open treadmills at the gym come January are proof that losing weight is the undisputed champ of resolutions.

Shall we have a fan moment?

This past Sunday, fans came out in droves to meet and, of course, snap a selfie with 2014 Ice Dancing Olympic Gold Medalist Meryl Davis and professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Take 20 with Kat

On October 23, we welcomed a dynamic duo of colors to the Vera Bradley family. Cheery Blossoms – the scarlet and blush floral counterpart to the verdant hues of Emerald Paisley – was the conceptual design darling of Materials Developer Kat Kovac. Watching the pattern come to fruition was a particularly rewarding process for the longtime Product […]

Snow Report

When our digital design team decided they wanted a snow-covered campaign for the holiday season, we knew we would need to create a flurry … and fast. And thus, the first-ever Vera Bradley Snowflake Cutting Party commenced against a backdrop of carols, A Charlie Brown Christmas and twinkle lights. Hot cocoa flowed in abundance, as […]
