Today’s post brings my monthly Pandora news round-up, featuring all that’s coming up for November 2016! This month we have so much to look forward to, with a whole range of new product launches, holiday promotions and more. :D
In terms of blog news, I have more reviews and previews coming up this month – Winter 2016 reviews won’t start until a little later on in the month, as I’m only planning on getting Christmas beads from this launch, but there are still plenty of gorgeous Autumn 2016 beads to review! ^^
There’s quite a lot of information in this round-up about various promos and Pandora news, and I found it a little tricky to know how best to categorise some of it – I hope it’s all easy to digest! :) Feel free to ask any questions if you’re not clear about anything. I’ll consolidate all this info and add it to my Promos page, too.
Pandora Winter 2016 Launch
The highlight of the month is undoubtedly the launch of Pandora’s last major collection of 2016, with the release of the Winter 2016 collection this Thursday, on the 3rd of November. For live shots and high quality stock images of all the new jewellery, have a mosey through the Pandora Winter 2016 tag. I’ll be posting in more detail again about the collection on Thursday!
Stores will start handing out the beautiful limited edition gift packaging for this year with purchases soon; the exact dates vary from country to country, and even from store to store. The bags are a gorgeous mix of red and silver, with gift wrapping to match!
Pandora Black Friday Charm & Promotions
The other launch for this month is the limited edition Pandora Black Friday 2016 charm, which is due out on the 25th of November. Previously, this charm has always been a North American exclusive but finally Pandora have decided to widen its scope and release it in other regions, too! The UK, Europe and Asia will be getting it, and I think Australia as well.
Some people have already been able to purchase this charm in the UK (some stores have been confused about the release date), and we have some gorgeous live shots courtesy of Elaine Rose Harris. I hadn’t actually been very keen on this charm from the stock image alone, but the colour and detail look really pretty in these live shots. I might be converted…
The Black Friday charm comes in a special LE box, as usual. This one has a lovely silver and rose gold colour scheme that matches the other GWP boxes for this season, too!
I already posted about North American Black Friday promos; the UK will be getting their own exclusive Black Friday gift set, too, which comes with a beautiful metallic travel box – I’m pretty sure that this is the same box that the US and Canada are getting with their holiday gift sets! <3 This set will retail for £149.
Pandora Christmas Ornament GWP
Pandora will be offering this lovely Hidden Gift ceramic tree ornament as a gift with purchase over the next couple of months in various regions. This is one of my favourite Pandora holiday traditions, and a promotion that I’m really looking forward to. For more details on the ornament itself, please check out my preview here!
This promotion will run in various countries (I haven’t confirmed exactly which, yet), but these are the dates for the regions I’ve heard about:
- In the UK, the promo starts with the launch of the Winter collection on the 3rd of November and runs while stocks last – it will be available with a spend of £125
- In Australia & New Zealand, this ornament will be available from the 17th of November until the 8th of December with a $150 AUD ($180 NZD) spend
- In North America, this ornament will be available from the 1st December while stocks last, with a qualifying spend of $125 USD
Pandora Australia & New Zealand Unique Snowflake Bangle GWP 2016
Good news for Pandora collectors in Australia & New Zealand, as Pandora will once again be running a GWP on the limited edition holiday bangle!
From the 8th of December, spend $150 AUD ($180 NZD) and receive the limited edition Unique Snowflake Bangle for free:
Pandora Preferred Card Holder Promotion for the US
Just to finish up with, we also have news of an exclusive US promotion for those who have a PANDORA Preferred Card (credit card). This will run for just a few days, from the 4th-6th November:
- Spend $350 USD or more and receive a Pandora card wallet
I know that there’s been a lot of posts in a very few days, but sometimes all the Pandora information and events just fall this way! ^^ I actually had last week off work, and so it’s given me some time to put together lots of blog posts in advance, for once!
I am super excited for the launch of the Winter 2016 collection, but I’ll be planning my purchases carefully so as to maximise the number of holiday promos I can take part in, haha. I definitely want the lovely Hidden Gift Christmas ornament, and if Jared in the US offer another exclusive ornament this year, I’ll probably try for that too!
I’ve also spent way too much on retired beads this past month, but I’m so thrilled with some of the beauties I’ve snapped up before they go. These are the highlights of what I got from the Rue La La sale (picture courtesy of my helper in the US) – I have lots of bracelet designs and ideas coming up that so many of the retiring beads this season are perfect for!
What are you looking forward to this month? Have you mapped out which promos and purchases you’ll be indulging in?
