Today’s post brings my monthly Pandora news round-up, featuring all the details on what’s coming up for June 2016! Included this month are some live shots of and further details on the Pandora Club charm and Summer collections for 2016, info on all the promotions going on this month and a heads-up regarding a Pandora Disney sale. :D
In terms of blog news, Pandora Summer 2016 reviews will be starting very soon, and I’ll also be posting some photos of all my recent goodies from the Pandora UK sale. :D
Pandora Club Charm 2016 Release
The limited edition Pandora Club charm for 2016 is out tomorrow! It’s a particularly lovely design this year, with beaded openwork detailing and lots of little hearts. It, of course, has the usual diamond on one side and the year engraved on the other; for a full preview and pricing, please see my previous post.
It also comes with a cute box, although I’m not sure which regions will be receiving this. North America and some European regions will definitely be getting it; apparently the UK will not. I don’t really get why Pandora UK never opt into any of the fun packaging for special releases; it really does make each limited edition charm feel that much more exciting!
A reader sent me these great photos of the box in action ^^ (the photo on the bottom right is an official Pandora stock image of it):
Pandora Summer 2016 Release
The Pandora Summer 2016 collection is due out worldwide on the 2nd of June – aka, this Thursday! :D
A lot of stores in the US and Canada already have their stock, although most regions have to wait until the release date proper, including the UK. A kind reader has sent me some gorgeous shots of two of the most-anticipated pieces, the Frosty Mint and Flower Garden muranos.
Readers have been commenting on how pale/white the Frosty Mint murano is in person, and not ‘mint’ at all; however, in these shots, you can see that there is at least a hint of mint in the murano, and some pretty pink flecks in the shimmer, too. Perhaps some are greener than others.
You can also see a lot of pretty variations of the Flower Garden murano in Morgan’s next beautiful live shots:
I have already managed to get my hands on the Flower Garden muranos myself – they are definitely as beautiful in person as they look in the pictures. :)
A couple of bloggers have already managed to get their hands on some summer charms as well and have already got ahead with their reviews!

My first summer review of the FG murano will be coming very soon too! <3
Pandora North American Leather Bracelet Promo
One of the more exciting events of the month, and a great opportunity to indulge in some of the new Summer pieces, is the annual US leather bracelet promo! There seems to have been a slight change in date for this promo. Originally advertised as starting from the 9th of June (see the poster below), it now seems that stores are running the promo from the 2nd to the 19th of June.
The spends will be $100 USD or $125 CAD, receiving a double-wrap leather bracelet free. Looks like upgrades to more expensive bracelets are officially allowed this year, according to this poster:
Pandora UK Sale
For those of you in the UK, the official Pandora summer sale will be lasting a little longer, I think until the 12th of June. A lot of the best bargains are gone, but there are still some rather lovely Pandora oldies on sale.
I have bought some wonderful pieces in this year’s summer sale, including three two-tone beads that I’ve wanted for some time. My classic two-tone bracelet design is now finished!
Other Pandora Promotions for June 2016
I haven’t heard of many other promotions running throughout May, but Pandora Austria will be offering a bracelet gift set for a discounted price:
My fellow blogger Claudia has more details for Austrian readers, and some thoughts on the Pandora Summer 2016 collection over at her blog Happy Face 313.
Pandora Sale @ the Disney Store
For Pandora Disney fans, there’s a chance to get a handful of the retiring Disney Parks exclusive at a discount from the Disney Store online! The beads in question are the 2015 limited edition beads, including lots celebrating the Disney Diamond anniversary – they’re listed in the gallery below:
Pandora Pre-Autumn 2016 Previews
Finally, just a reminder that previews for the Pandora Pre-Autumn 2016 collection are out! :) The charms for this collection feature the signs of the zodiac and some friendship-themed beads. Click the link above for a preview! :)
I am particularly excited for this year’s Summer collection; the Flower Garden murano is absolutely gorgeous, and I can say that having seen it in person now! ^^ It’s one of my favourite muranos Pandora have produced yet, and the glass is exquisite. I’m also looking forward to getting the new Club charm, although I’ll probably be getting it from abroad so I can take advantage of that lovely box!
I’ve also picked out what I’d like from the North American leather bracelet promo; with two new LE leather bracelets coming out with the Summer collection, it would be almost rude not to take part! ;)
What are you looking forward to this month? What have you got picked out?
