Vera Bradley Winter 2012 Retirees

The first set of three new Fall 2012 Vera Bradley patterns will be released in 5 days, which means we will soon be saying goodbye to some patterns and styles.

I didn't post it, but the Fall 2012 retirees were Viva La Vera, Watercolor, Deco Daisy, Plum Petals, and Safari Sunset. They retired five colors, but don't forget we will be getting six new colors this fall.

If you need a reminder of the new fall colors, I posted about them when I went to the Vera Bradley Outlet Sale this year.

With the release of the fall colors, it's time to start thinking about the Winter retirees. After a little detective work, I have discovered that we'll soon be losing the following patterns and styles.

Happy Snails
Tea Garden
Rosey Posies

Yes! Rosey Posies is retiring already! It was just introduced this year as a new Spring color, but it will disappearing later this year. I take this to mean it did not sell well at all.

The following styles will be retiring in all available colors.

Saddle Up which I believe is being restyled.

Quick Draw



XL Duffel

Contact Case

Snappy Wallet

Tune In

Double Kiss Coin Purse

Loop Keychain

Sad to see a color or style go? Excited about a new color? Leave a comment below and let's discuss!

P.S. I announced the winner of the Tiny Prints party invitations giveaway. Was it you?



  1. You only got one color right. :) Rosey posies, rhythm and blues, mocha rouge, and very berry paisley! Plus one of my local stores got one of the colors wrong and put out floral nightingale also.

    1. These are colors that have retired already. They retire the colors prior to releasing the new colors. So they are a season ahead. The colors that just retired are considered the Spring 2013 retirees. And Floral Nightingale is retiring this time around. Vera Bradley confirmed those five colors are now on sale.
