Today’s post brings a heads-up that US shopping site Rue La La are hosting another sale on Pandora on Tuesday (25th April)! The sale will offer discounts of up to 40% on retired Pandora products, and usually includes charms, jewellery and watches.
This month’s sale (finally!) features new styles, and I am super excited to see some of the pieces included in this banner! It’s crazy how many beautiful classic beads are retiring at the moment – the London Bus, the Midnight Effervescence murano, the blue Looking Glass, some gorgeous gold beads and what looks to be one of last year’s summer leathers.
I get this asked this question a lot, and so I’ll answer it here to be clear: Rue La La are an authorised US Pandora retailer and only sell the genuine article! So you can buy with confidence – I have been doing so for years.
The sale starts on Tuesday (the 25th of April) at 11am ET. Just a reminder, also, Rue La La have started offering international shipping to a select number of countries, and offer proper integration with international credit cards now! Plus, for certain countries (not all, apparently), if you spend over $100 USD, then you only have to pay $9.95 USD to ship internationally.
Rue La La is a members-only website, but you can use my affiliate invite link to access the website. Happy shopping!
Oh good! I’ve been wanting the intricate lattice bead and lucky penny dangle and they are both shown in the sale banner. Finally, some new beads! I’m looking forward to seeing what else is in the sale.
There were some really nice things I thought! I got way more than I intended to, but I always do. And it was nice to be over excited and wanted to buy everything, as the Mother’s Day collection was a real miss for me.
My 30 days of free shipping ends the day before!!! But I think they may have the rose ring and maybe the charms. I need some of those for a pink theme bracelet I’m building. Guess I’ll have to shell out an additional $9.99 for shipping. Hopefully it will have more than one thing I’m interested in.
Oh no! What bad timing haha. I’m sure they had a few things you were interested in – I know I got way too much! ;)
The last time I purchased from this company I returned 3 Pandora items and the said I only returned two and would only credit me for two. So it’s my word again theirs and I’m out $80.00. Never ordering from them again!!! All I can say is Buyer beware!!!!!
It’s unfortunate errors like this happen. :-( I’ve only had good customer service from Rue. I’ve had wrong size bracelets sent, sealed in the original Pandora packaging, so the error was not Rue’s fault, but rather a Pandora factory error. Still, Rue refunded me the price, though I didn’t ask for a refund. I told them of the mistake just to alert them. They were awesome about it though.
I’ve had that twice too with rings, Lola. With Pandora’s labelling being at fault! :)
Oh no! :( I have to say I’ve returned a couple of things and not had a problem, but that absolutely sucks!
Sooo excited. I hope they have tons of great pieces for us. Mora what are other authorized online retailers for Pandora you can share?
Yes please share any other online authorized dealers – thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us
You can find out from the Pandora estore official website but it will only tell you of the authorised dealers in your own country. None of them are supposed to post to other countries but you can find authorised dealers on Amazon and you can find out if they are genuine by searching on the estore, but only if they have a physical store. It is very difficult to find out who is an authorised dealer from another country if they only sell online, you would have to ask people from the country in which you are interested to check for you :-/.
Your best bet is to go on your local version of Pandora.net to see who they list as authorised online retailers – it varies by country. Rue La La are the only discount seller that I”m aware of.
Thank you very much for giving your time to keep me informed about up comming events
with Pandora. You are the Best ! I love your web site.
You’re welcome! <3 Glad it was helpful and I hope you got a few things!
The banner seems promising. Some item already retired here in Australia. I will sure check it out as always. Thanks Ellie.
Yep, I got lots! :D
Any news on the Dumbo Exclusive Disney Parks charm yet
Oh I’m dying to know too I keep checking both the Disney parks app and Disney Store every day I so want Dumbo and Alice in the teacup!
I’ve never seen any Disney charms offered, been shopping Rue for over 6 years. :(
Nope, just that it’s only out in Asia so far :(
I’m excited to see a few new pieces that have been retired and have never been available at the outlets. My retired collection is almost complete but I love looking anyway. I’ve been buying Pandora from Rue la la for a while now and have never had a problem. Ellie are there any new promotions coming to the Concept stores in the future? I have my eye on a few new pieces! Thanks as always for your blog, it makes my day!!
There was a Mother’s Day jewellery box offered recently, not sure on anything else. I need to do some digging!
Yay! Shining up my husband’s credit card for the big day!!!!! Lol.
Ahaha! That’s the spirit!
What good news, I have been hoping for a rue sale for the last few days as I want the vanity mirro and can’t seem to find it at any authorized retailers. Yey hoping they have it this time around. Is the vanity mirror all silver or does it have white enamel detailing ??
Which pieces are you planning on getting ? ?
Hi Alex, the vanity mirror was there yesterday. There is no enamel on this one.
Hi Rachelle, Yes I snagged one up as I wanted it to represent beauty and the beast. Thanks so much for letting me know and for the enamel update, I am so excited to receive it.
I see you snagged a few pieces yourself , especially love your Xmas pieces , Pandora is always fun and festive around Christmas and the holidays.
I have place my vanity mirror between a rose charm and the lion king which represents the Beast. It is so delicate and cute, it makes a nice contrast. I have also added my snowhite dress and red apple not too far from it to represent the mirror in both Disney film.
It is very versatile… Minnie also loves to look at herself in the mirror hahaha!
I just love reading this blog to get new ideas. Enjoy designing your bracelet with this new precious charm.
HI Alex! Yep, no enamel on the mirror – just polished silver :) I ended up getting the light blue looking glass murano, a couple of Rose spacers, the silver bow… and more! I went a bit crazy aha!
Thank You very much from Croatia. I ordered two charms last month, everything was fine.
I have used Rue la la site several times and have not been disappointed. I have bought both silver and gold charms and earrings. Thanks for your blog and all your hard work. I look forward to seeing it. Have a great day. ? Sue
Very glad to hear it! Have a lovely week ahead :)
I tried shopping the sale but don’t see any of the charms shown on the banner….am I doing something wrong? This is my first time using Rue.
In my experience, the banners rarely show what will be offered. I was just there too, and it’s underwhelming, with one or two new things tossed in amid lots of stuff we’ve been seeing for far too long. The biggest “new” is the new categories. They didn’t used to give Essence its own category, for example, but within the new Essence category is the same old stuff. For me in Canada, for something like last summer’s leathers, Rue’s price is a lot higher with shipping than I can buy them here, as they’re still available here. Same with some of the charms on offer, still available here a lot cheaper.
I should say too, keep watching over the next 2 weeks of the sale, because occasionally, when they restock sold out items, they’ll bring out new items.
Hi Nicole and Lola!
There are over 100 new charms included in the sale and every charm in the image is available (unless it’s sold out!). Here are some links to the new charms that Ellie mentioned in the post:
I hope this helps!
The sale started 1am my time, but was worth it as I got some retired items I was after. Also got an item still available here in Australia, but even with conversion & shipping it was cheaper. Very happy!
Ah, I never make it when a Rue La La sale starts 1 am UK time! So props to you haha.
I have never shopped with Rue la la, and was slightly nervous to-US shipping costs etc, but have placed an order for 3 retired charms that I desperately wanted-the piano, the theatre mask and the absolutely gorgeous Teal Lattice Murano (that I fell in love with after seeing it on this blog!!!). These charms I have currently been unable to find anywhere! For the moment my retired list is complete!!!! Plus my bracelet will now be full-the question is do I get another bracelet!?!?! Yay, now it just need to hurry up!
Oh amazing! :D And yes, you should always get another bracelet! You know that you’ll want more charms! ;)
Does Rue La La ever offer the retired Disney charms?
I’ve not seen any of the Disney charms on RLL.
No, they’ve never stocked Disney so far. I wonder if there are rules that prevent them from doing that.
Thanks again for your beautiful blog. I enjoy reading it whenever I can and it sure does cheer me up.
Although the sale was not exactly great when I calculated the conversion $ and shipping cost, I still ordered a few retired beads.
I could not resist the easter bunny which was on my list for such a long time. I was so surprised to see him listed and still can’t believe it is coming home. He is going on my fairy bracelet.??
I also ordered the vintage heart after seing your beautiful pictures in your review.?
I also added the Santa elves and the Christmas ornament dangle since I love snowflakes. I want to start a holiday bracelelet with Pandora charms. I have one with other brand names and I wear all winter.❄❄❄
I am still waiting for the Up&Away balloun to show upat Rue Lala.??
Your beauty and the beast/Snow White combo bracelet sounds amazing. I think a lot of people used to vanity mirror to represent these princesses or Alice in wonderland.
If you need some inspiration rather than a silver bracelet Xmas combo I was able to snag the red leather ( which is an amazing shade ) and I did a mini Xmas theme on that :)
Great idea! So far I only have the black leather (which I misplace somehow last week). I do have a purple Chamelia but thinking getting more Pandora colors. It is worth waiting for the next promo for these leather bracelets. Usually in June for us in Canada.
Aw, glad to hear that my Vintage Heart review convinced you! It’s one of my very earliest reviews I ever did :) sounds like you got a lovely set of beads! I was really hoping the Up & away would be on Rue too, but in the end it turned up in the UK sale so I got it there! Fingers crossed for you :)
Nice … got a leather bracelet to try out and some star clips.
Excellent! I didn’t get any bracelets but I did get a lot of charms!
Just ordered the carousel, I wanted the disney one that is supposed to come out this year but this one looks exactly the same and is a fraction of the price.
Good call! I love the original carousel. Am still surprised it retired, and wonder if it was to make way for the Disney one, perhaps.
How often does Pandora go on Rue Lala? I just missed the last sale they had and was wondering how OfferBug they Sale Pandora items?? Thanks!
