Today’s post brings my monthly Pandora news round-up, featuring details on what’s coming up for the month! There are no Pandora collections due out in December; the next release we have to look forward to is the Pandora Valentine’s Day 2015 collection in mid-January. In a way this is a nice break, as Pandora’s schedule this year has been incredibly full, but I find that I’m already itching to see what the Valentine’s Day charms look like in person, haha. However there are a number of fun winter promotions to enjoy in the run-up to Christmas!
Coming up on the blog, I have some some fun Christmas features planned, plus more Winter 2014 reviews, including those of the Fascinating Aventurescent murano and the Black Friday charm. Apologies for the delay of the former, but it’s taken the scenic route on its way to me from Australia. ;)
The big promotion this month is the Christmas ornament GWP, which is available in numerous regions with varying spends. For some live shots of the ornament and more details on the promotion, please see my feature here!
- In the US and Canada, this promotion has a very limited run – it starts today and will run until the 7th of December. The required spend is $125 ($150 CAD).
- In Australia, this promotion started on the 27th of November and will be offered until the 7th of December, with a required spend of $150 AUD ($180 AUD).
- In the UK, this promotion started with the release of the Winter 2014 collection and will continue whilst stocks last – the spend is £125.
In other news:
- In North America, the Starlight and Stargazer gift sets will continue to be offered until the 31st of December.
- In the UK and Australia, Pandora usually runs their official sales from Boxing Day through January. The sale includes retired jewellery, and usually offers some amazing savings! Keep an eye out for more details. :)
Pandora Unforgettable Moments Cruise
The details for the 2015 Pandora Cruise were announced last month, and registration has now opened! The cruise will run from the 12th – 19th of April, and sail through the Eastern Caribbean – more details are at the cruise’s official website.
For the uninitiated, Pandora in North America run an annual cruise, with special Pandora events and shopping:
Join PANDORA for their 4th annual cruise onboard Celebrity Silhouette, sailing for 7-nights to the beautiful destinations of San Juan, St. Kitts and St. Maarten. Departing from Ft Lauderdale, Florida, guests will enjoy exclusive shopping experiences and private events designed just for PANDORA lovers.
Most excitingly (in my opinion, haha), Pandora fans who attend the cruise receive a very limited edition charm especially made for the cruise that year! This year’s was a two-tone version of the adorable Pandora shopping bag charm.
Pandora UK Retirement for 2015
The Pandora UK website has updated with a new wave of retired pieces, including a surprising amount from the Spring 2014 collection. The retired pieces mainly include some of the more obscure or country-specific pieces, such as the Brazil and USA map charms. Please note that Pandora’s retirement lists vary from region to region, and this retirement applies to the UK only.
It might be worth taking note, as these may crop up in the Boxing Day and January sales. (Please note that this is the not the full list – just a few interesting pieces!)
I myself just bought the gorgeous Chinese Lantern, for example, which is currently being offered at 30% off at ROJ (who, at the time of writing, are allowing me to make orders to the UK). This is a stunning piece in person – such a lovely vibrant red.
I have already indulged in the absolutely gorgeous Christmas ornament for this year – it’s a lovely collectable, and a Pandora Christmas tradition that I really look forward to each year.
I am still considering a couple more pieces from the Pandora Winter 2014 collection, but otherwise I am mostly saving up my money for the sales later on in the month! The lack of new pieces is something of a welcome breather, but I’m still hankering for some live shots of the new Valentine’s pieces to tide me over. ;)
What are you looking forward to for the month? Will you be taking part in any promotions?
