Today’s post brings my monthly Pandora news round-up, featuring all the details on what’s coming up for November 2015! The holiday season is beginning to get under way, and there’s a whole host of festive promos this month. The highlight is undoubtedly the limited edition Black Friday charm, which I have some more details on today!
Coming up on the blog will be my first Winter 2015 reviews this month – there is lots to love in this new collection!
Pandora Disney Release for Asia and Australia
Last month we heard the exciting news that the Pandora Disney collection is coming to Asia and Australia, and that it was due out in both regions for this month. We now have some more specific information, and concrete dates for both the Asian and Australian launches!
The collection is slated for release in Asia on the 5th of November and in Australia on the 12th of November. I mentioned before that I had been told that not all of the existing Disney charms and jewellery would make it out for this initial launch, and that has now been confirmed.
In Australia, 28 pieces will be released, including the Mickey and Minnie mouse charms and the Cinderella pieces to start with. This will include the limited edition Sparkling Mickey & Minnie charms that just launched in the US and Canada.
Asia will see a similar selection, but with the addition of the Frozen and Snow White pieces. A recent Pandora Disney preview was held in a variety of Asian countries, featuring stylings very nicely combines the Disney pieces with the new Winter 2015 collection:
Pandora Black Friday 2015 Charm Release & Black Friday Promotions
The highlight of November is usually the annual launch of the limited edition Pandora Black Friday charm: it’s slated for release this year on the 27th of November. We had an early sneak peek of the Black Friday charm this year, revealing it to be a rather cute pavé snow globe design – but intriguingly, two different versions of the charm leaked online!
I can now confirm that this two-tone version of the snow globe will be the North American Black Friday charm for this year. I don’t know if it will make an appearance in other regions, or what the plain silver opalescent version is intended for; perhaps for an equivalent limited edition release elsewhere in the world?
In addition to the release of the Black Friday charm itself, Pandora will be running a rather special GWP for North America. From the 26th to the 30th of November, spend $125 USD ($150 CAD) and get the LE Dainty Bow bangle for free. This will also be offered online for Cyber Monday. After the promotion has ended, the bangle will be sold on its own for $75 USD.
This offers the perfect opportunity to pick up the Black Friday charm, and I’m considering doing this myself!
In the UK, we will be getting a special Black Friday bracelet bundle at a special price of £99 (that’s quite a saving on an estimated RRP of ~£165) featuring the barrel clasp bracelet, the silver logo clips and the new Winter 2015 openwork CZ present charm. Hat tip goes to Shelly for sharing this deal on my Facebook wall! :)
Pandora Christmas Gift Bag 2015
Every year, Pandora design a special gift bag to celebrate the holiday season – this year’s has been revealed as a lovely pastel blue/grey, with a matching ribbon:
It has a rather pretty snowflake design printed on it, which you can see in this close-up shot. It matches nicely with the whole ‘crystalised embellishment’ theme Pandora have going on this season.
I love to collect the special bags, I’ll admit, and so I’ll be making sure I get this year’s! ^^
Pandora Promotions for November 2015
The UK have already started the Pandora Christmas Ornament gift with promotion with the launch of the Winter 2015 collection, and it will run whilst stocks last. The ornament for 2015 is a gorgeous white porcelain snowflake, hung from a blue Pandora ribbon:
It’s a £125 qualifying spend, which shouldn’t be too hard to hit with the all the new jewellery that has just come out! I am very tempted (and I could very easily spend £125 on the new collections…!). Other regions will not be running this promotion until later in the month at least –
- in Australia and New Zealand, this promo will begin on the 19th of November
- in North America, it will begin on the 1st of December.
Other notable promotions include this gorgeous travel jewellery box GWP from Pandora Germany: spend 129 euros and get it for free. I would love one of these boxes!
It looks very functional as well as very pretty:
Meanwhile in Spain, Pandora are offering the new Christmas Puppy as a free gift when you purchase any 3 charms or more from now until the 19th of November:
*UPDATED – thanks to Marta and Lily for the information* In Portugal, Pandora are currently running a special promo in celebration of the 2nd anniversary of the Pandora Essence collection. From the 31st of October until the 30th of November, spend 84 euros on the Pandora Essence collection and receive one of the star-sign Essence beads for free.
If you know of any promos going on in your region, or starting soon, please let me know and I’ll add them in! :)
There are some really fun promos running this month, and I am very tempted to get myself one of the Christmas ornaments. It looks gorgeous in the live photos I’ve seen, and it’s one of my favourite promos that Pandora run every year. :D The highlight of the month for me is undoubtedly the Black Friday charm, however. This year’s design is really beautiful, although I would like to know more about the opalescent snow globe, as that is the version I would most like to have!
What are you most looking forward to this month? Will you be getting the Black Friday charm or taking part in any promos?
