Vera Bradley Beach Giveaway

(Disclosure: I received a beach set from Vera Bradley but all thoughts are my own.)

I had never heard of Vera Bradley until a few years ago when I went on a mom’s retreat weekend. The other moms were so excited to go check out this store that had a large selection of Vera Bradley products so I tagged along.

What I discovered were brightly colored bags, scarfs, and other items in fun patterns. I didn’t buy anything that day but I remembered wishing that I could. I ended up buying a used Vera Bradley bag from a friend and using it is a diaper bag. That started my Vera Bradley collection.

When I was approached about offering a Vera Bradley beach themed giveaway to my readers I was so excited because that meant I could introduce all of you to this great brand. Along with having bright, beautiful patterns, the products are all high quality and made to last.

Right now the summer patterns are all on sale since the Fall patterns come out next week. It’s a great time to get a cute beach bag, pair of flip flops, or a beach towel.

GIVEAWAY:

One reader will win a Vera Bradley Beach towel, sarong and mesh beach tote.

HOW TO ENTER:

{Do any or all of the following, leave a separate comment for each you do}

1) Tell me where you’d rather use these items at, the beach or the pool?

2) Tell me what your favorite pattern is

3) Share this giveaway on a social network

4) Comment on another one of my posts

5) Follow me on Twitter

6) Follow Vera Bradley on Twitter

Giveaway ends July 28, 2013 at 11:59pm Central time. Entrants must be a US resident, 18 years or older.
