Today’s post offers some Pandora updates for readers in the UK, with some additional details on upcoming promotions and releases, including the Pandora summer sale and the launch of the Pandora Rose collection! Promotions have been a little sparse for UK collectors over the last couple of years, but, happily for us, there are a few exciting Pandora events to look forward to over the next month or so – I’ve collated the key dates and info in this post! ^^
Additionally, for those who are wondering about the 3-for-2 rings promo that usually runs in May, it has been pushed back to the end of July this year. The leather bracelet promo does not seem to be going ahead this year unfortunately and so the schedule has been adjusted to reflect this :(
Pandora Rose UK Launch
For fans of the gorgeous Pandora Rose collection, the exciting news is that it is finally hitting UK stores next month! A lovely sales assistant recently mentioned to me that it was due out in June, and several news sites have posted confirmation of this: the Rose collection is due out in the UK on the 15th of June!
In the Retail Jeweller article, they have posted accompanying pictures from Rose Spring 2015 collection, including the Rose Sparkling Butterfly and the adorable Bow collection, so it looks like the UK will be getting the newest Rose pieces too. Yay!
I have no confirmation on prices yet, but my sales assistant mentioned that the bracelet is set to be £60. To read my thoughts on the Pandora Rose collection, check out my review here!
Pandora UK Summer Sale
Due to the launch of the Pandora Rose line in mid-June, Pandora UK have moved their annual summer sale forward – it’s due to begin on Thursday both in-store and online! The sale usually offers discounts of up to 50% on retired or soon-to-retire items. Many online retailers start their sales at midnight, so it is probably worth checking in around then to get hold of the best deals!
The Irish retailer Republic of Jewels will also be offering the sale on the 28th – they offer a higher rate of discount at 70%. The sale is due start at 9am, and the best deals go extremely quickly – so I’d advise arriving on site promptly if you don’t want to miss out!
I will note that they often experience very high numbers of orders and that it can take them a couple of weeks to process them and get them out (although they were super speedy for me last time around). For me, the 70% discount is worth it but for you it may not be! There are two versions of the site: the UK version, and the Irish version.
New Pandora Jewellery Boxes for 2015
Concept stores in the UK have begun to receive some exciting new jewellery boxes for sale! These are not gift-with-purchases, but are available to purchase outright. These do not seem to be available in other countries – yet, at least.
The new boxes have a beige-coloured exterior, and come in two sizes; the medium is priced at £45.
The large jewellery box is a fair bit pricier at £85.
Previously, official Pandora jewellery boxes have been GWP only (and the required spends have always been astronomical), so it’s great to see some jewellery boxes available to purchase outright.
I am a big fan of the Pandora Rose line, and I’m so excited to see it make its debut here in the UK! It’ll be great to be able to see it all in person for the first time, and I’m hoping to get a few more of the Spring 2015 pieces to add to my Rose bracelet. :D I’m also very curious to see what will end up in the Summer sale – although launching it at the same time as the Pandora Summer collection is sure to be pretty damaging to my finances haha.
Are you excited to see the Rose collection launch in the UK? What are you hoping to see in the summer sale?
