Happy news for Pandora fans in the US as shopping site Rue La La will be running a sale on Pandora jewellery tomorrow (Thursday the 24th of September)! The sale offers significant discounts on retired Pandora products, and usually includes charms, jewellery and watches. The last one only ran a month ago, so it’s surprising to see another sale so soon – not that I’m complaining! ;)
The banner for this sale doesn’t look like there is too much that’s new, but if you missed out on anything in the last sale, this might be your second chance! I also spy a little red looking glass murano, which might be nice on any upcoming holiday bracelet designs you have planned, and the retired Fascinating Aventurescent at the front of the image!
The sale is due to start at 11am EDT on Thursday and is listed on the Rue La La site:
The best discounts tend to go quickly, so it’s recommended that you check out with the items you want sooner rather than later. Readers should note that Rue La La can take a while to dispatch items – a month is not unusual. When adding items to your cart, take a look at Rue La La’s estimated dispatch date in the items’ descriptions (see below). :)
For the uninitiated, Rue La La is a US shopping website, which specialises in offering discounts from designer products. International readers should bear in mind that Rue La La is a US website, and will only ship to the continental US. If you want to participate in this sale, then you’ll have to get a friend from the US to help you! They do, however, now accept international credit cards, if you submit a US billing and shipping address – although it is a bit hit and miss as to whether this works or not.
Rue La La is a members-only website, but you can use my invite code to access the website. Happy shopping!
Wow that was super fast! I am not complaining either! Is the looking glass Murano in the photo the coral colored one? If so it is indeed a very pretty color!
Yeah, the coral/red looking glass! There’s only one that sort of shade:
It’s a really pretty colour! I might be tempted by that one ;)
Wow I was really impressed with the stuff they had this time around, HUGE bummer by the time I got to the site the coral looking glass murano was sold out :(( was thinking it would be a great addition to the Mickey/Minnie bracelet that I want to begin.
I know, I’m also crying (well, not literally :P) over the coral looking glass! I knew I was going to be out and about at the time the sale started, so I found a spot with good mobile internet. Then, just as the clock hit 15.59, one minute to go, my network went down. By the time it came back on fifteen minutes later, the looking glass was gone. So frustrating, haha. It would have been great for your Mickey/Minnie design too! Have you hit ‘still want it’ for it?
On the other hand, I did get the plain silver snake and the golden vintage enamel spacers! :D That’s your bad influence again, haha.
Omg the lil snake that won my heart! <3 oh yea the spacers are lovly, remember they look really good paired next to a two tone bead as the color of the spacet matches the gold nearly perfect! Ha I had a hunch u and I would be head to head going for the looking glass :) no I don't want to use th option because it's available ( although not at a sale price) on a few different sites, so if I decide I must have it I will prob just order from one of the sites then and there.
That’s the one :P You convinced me! I think I am going to put the golden vintage spacers with a little two-tone, yep :D Maybe put together a little autumnal design!
Aha, I hadn’t thought of it like that, all of us here competing for the same beads haha. I’ve gone for the ‘still want it’ as it just isn’t available at all here in the UK. :)
That was quick indeed. I was hoping for some of the newly retired pieces but it looks like the same pieces than the last few sales on the cover. :(
It does look like mostly more of the same. :/ The red looking glass is new, though, I think, and it’s nice to see the Fascinating Aventurescent up for grabs again! Perhaps they will surprise us with some other new things :)
They’re losing so many customers not accepting a billing address outside the USA!
Hi Jorden, u can put your US shipping address as your billing address :) . Then you will be able to use cards not from U.S. they wrote this somewhere during checkout if I’m not wrong :)
That’s how I have managed to do it, Cindy, although I’ve found it works with some cards and not with others. :)
You can put a US billing address in the box and sometimes that works. Rue sent me a survey the other day on what they could improve, and making shopping easier for international customers was the thing I flagged up most! :)
I tried to pay with my canadian m/c and my american m/c but since both are issued in canada, the rue site wont take it. My credit card accepted the purchase but the rue site wouldnt accept the payment so the payment ( actually double payment) sat on my card for nearly 2 weeks before it finally dropped off. I was charged twice because when i called the company, they tried to manually put it thru but it wouldnt work for them either. I called my credit card and they told me they accepted the purchase and did not decline it. I had an american shipping address and still it absolutely would not go thru. This was the last time, a few weeks ago. This time, i called my cousin who lives in the states and had her make the purchade for me. I mised out on a couple of things because she couldnt ,make the purchase until the night of the sale. I make a lot of purchases from canada and have them ship to the states and there are only a handfull of businesses left with such an outdated system that do not accept international shopping…especially when being shipped within their own country! If i could do the survey…i would tell them to add international billing address option to the payment and second, change their paypal option to accept international paypal accounts! The second i tried to pay with paypal, i received a message that they do not accept payments from my country ( canada).
Eugh, how frustrating! :( Their Paypal system only accepts payments from US accounts, I know that. A reader in the last sale did suggest setting up your own US Paypal account, using a US shipping address, as an alternative – perhaps that could help you out? I do agree that it is often very frustrating for international shoppers and they certainly could do with improving their system a lot more – or at least making it clearer what will and won’t go through in terms of international payments.
I’ve had hit and miss results previously but have found a card that it seems to accept so who knows what the logic behind that is lol.
They are all in Toronto outlet store too.
Yes, sounds like that’s a great resource for you! :)
Ellie, is there somewhere a list of Pandora outlet stores available? In Europe, I know just about the one in Vienna… which I totally plan to visit some day soon :D
Good question! :) I have had a quick Google but haven’t found anything comprehensive. Perhaps I will try and put one together. Seems like a good resource to have!
I think that with the help of your fans and readers, it could be quite easy. And it will generate even more traffic to your blog ;) I would love to have a list like this when I travel.
I might put a little note out on my next round-up then! I can start it off from Google and then if people contribute the ones that they’re aware of, then we could get a good list going I think. :)
My bracelet is almost complete ! *-*
Sorry I had to spread my joy haha
Aha yay! Is it your first design? :D
Yes it is ! :D
Aw, congrats! On to the next one? ;)
I think they are delivering these much faster than they used to!!!! I have had very fast delivery the last couple of sales!!!! Just a few days!!!!
Yeah they have been super speedy recently! Looks like it will be the same this time round from the estimated shipping dates :D
Thanks so much for the head’s up. I’m even qualified for the 30-day free shipping! (Apparently the last time I shopped with them was like 29 days ago. I managed to grab one or two retired charms for my friend’s present. She is going to be delighted as she asked me to pick it up some time ago (the old turtle, not the blinked one) but it was not available then. But now I’ve scored one for her.. XD
I tried my luck on ‘still want it’ for Fascinating murano the last time and I got lucky. I am trying again this time. Keeping my fingers crossed.
I missend the Fascinating Aventurescent murano. :(
It was gone so quick … I could not click that fast.
Aw, I know, it sold out in minutes! I wanted the coral looking glass which sold out really fast as well :'( I’ve tried the ‘still want it’, so maybe I’ll still manage it.
Hi Kelly, you’re welcome! Glad you managed to find what you wanted! The turtle is so cute, I got one recently on holiday in Amsterdam :D
I really really wanted the coral looking glass but it sold out before I could get to it :'( I’ve heard a few people getting lucky with the ‘still want it’, so hopefully we’ll both manage it again this time <3
Are the charms sold authentic? Reviews online seems to say that they are not.
Yup, 100% authentic!
Those charms really went fast! I was on the site at 1 minute past the hour and by the time I scrolled to the bottom of the page a lot of things were sold out already.
I know! I was so disappointed to miss the coral looking glass. I wasn’t surprised to see the Aventurescent go in seconds, though.
I love the vintage allure earrings so I’m very tempted but I can’t understand why they are so expensive…
I leave in France and I’m so glad I can order with my credit card (it doesn’t work with my husbands card)
I bought the coral looking glass murano with the last free charm promo, I hope I will recieve it soon !
I wear the golden vintage enamel spacer with my wood beads and like it.
I have the Vintage Allure charm – the whole set is beautiful but, as you say, so expensive! The spinel stones are synthetic, so I’m not quite sure why they are priced so high either. I got my charm when it was half price in the Christmas sales last year :)
Oh lucky you! I was really disappointed to miss out on the coral in this latest sale. I don’t have any of the Pandora wood beads but I can imagine how pretty they would look with the golden enamel spacers. I think I will probably end up wearing mine with a little two-tone!
Jana asked about outlet stores. I’m not sure where she is located but I have a list of stores for the US. They were originally posted on the official Pandora FB page by Signe, one of the page moderators. I have purchased from the Hilton Head store and Potomac Mills store. UPS shipping is a flat rate of $20. Its my understanding that newly retired pieces are 30% off. Then they go to 50% off and 75% off. Recently I was able to get a gold wood bead and rose gold 8 pod ring for 75% off. Even my husband was impressed!
Pandora Branson Outlets, Missouri
Pandora Rehoboth, Delaware
Pandora Hilton Head Outlets, South Carolina
Pandora at Sevierville Outlets, Tennessee
Pandora Potomac Mills Outlet, Virginia
Pandora at The Walk Outlets, New Jersey
None of the above stores have a website but they should do phone orders. You can order online from Pandora St Louis and Pandora Mall of America. These 2 stores do not discount pieces but they’re a good source for retired items.
You can find the individual store contact info by going to the Stores search on the US Pandora page. Hope this helps!
Thanks for the list. :)
Potomac Mills Outlet in Virginia and The Walk Outlets in New Jersey do phone orders. I ordered from them before are got some great deals (e.g. red candy stripe murano for $8)
Thanks for that info Andrea! What a great deal on the candy stripe murano. They are quite hard to come by these days!
Oooh that is so helpful! Thank you so much for supplying that list. I have already got to work at trying to put together at least the start of a definitive list of outlet stores, so that is really useful. Thanks so much for posting it! <3
Sounds like they offer some really good deals, too. I have never been to the outlet in Bicester that we have here in the UK, but I don't think they offer discounts quite as amazing as that!
Hi there! I too have ordered from 3 of the us outlets on your list and have had great service at discounted prices!
Don’t miss the collect store in Toronto, Premium Collection Outlet at Niagara on the Lake and Targer Outlet at Cookstown. 30% off recent retired and 50% off older retired.
Ooh! Thank you :)
Is all the pandora. Charm have ale signature. Cause i bought the hand. And to clipses nothing in it.
Which charms did you buy? All Pandora will have the hallmarks somewhere, although they can be hard to find.
