Summer 2011 sneak peek

Liz Money, Fabric and Trend CoordinatorIt’s here! Settle in for a sneak peek at the sultry Summer 2011 collection with our friendly, fashion–forward Fabric and Trend Coordinator, Liz. That’s right; it’s more of the Liz on Location you love, coming to you from The Crescent City.

Intimate nights by the flickering hues of a campfire, a starlit evening at a local festival, a fantastically mild day on the beach, outdoor weddings, weekend barbecues, pool parties … The list of summer celebrations is endless and we have four new colors to help you make a statement at any summer soiree.

Summer 2011

This season, we were inspired by … flowers! Romantic, bold, micro, stylized, tossed, bouquets, oversized; you name it, and we were fond of it. The result: A group of Summer colors that’s anything but lacking in botanical beauty.

WatercolorWatercolor is a romantic pattern influenced by the painting style of its namesake and colored in soft, nostalgic hues that make you want to put on a flirty dress and take a long walk down a tree-lined gravel road.

Viva la VeraViva la Vera is a party, with a combination of animated florals and bold, bright primary colors. It screams, “Turn up the music!” and begs you to dance along.

English MeadowEnglish Meadow is the softer side of summer, with micro florals in blue, green and yellow. It’s a nod to slow summer days spent enjoying the warmth of the sun.

Deco DaisyDeco Daisy is black, white and red all over. We are loving the reemergence of red as a leading trend color. Deco Daisy boasts black and white Asian-inspired florals with a nod to the Art Deco (or Art Nouveau) movement with a sophisticated houndstooth lining.

Oh, we can’t wait for Summer! Just 10 days to go …

    I can’t wait for Deco Daisy!

  2. Mallory Biazzo says:

    I am LOVING these. Watercolor is my favorite, I am definitely going to have to purchase a tote for school in that. I also love Deco Daisy with the houndstooth print interior. Very lovely!

  3. Allegra Franklin says:

    Looks like its going to be another great season!! I can’t wait for those colors to release

  4. Lydia Strain says:

    So Pretty !!!!

  5. So excited by these! Deco Daisy could well become my new favorite pattern!

  6. Victoria says:

  7. Tracy H. says:

    Loving English Meadow and Deco Daisy!

  8. Jami says:

    I love the viva la vera! It is so bright and fun.

  9. Colleen Hall says:

    I have SO much Vera accumulated over the years, and just when I say, I don’t need any more(!) then I see Watercolor. LOVE IT!

  10. Paula says:

    “bold, bright primary colors”
    Since when are purple and green primary colors?

    • Sandy says:

      She just said they are bold and bright… Not primary. Listen before you criticize.

      • sandra denlinger says:

        I’m with you, Paula. I’m not sure which colors she’s referring to as primary.
        Sandy, read the description!

      • Miranda says:

        The line written to describe the pattern says “Viva la Vera is a party, with a combination of animated florals and bold, bright primary colors. It screams, “Turn up the music!” and begs you to dance along.”

      • alexa says:

        i agree with you!

      • Paula says:

        You should probably think before speaking, Sandy.

  11. Charlene says:

    Great new patterns and colors! Love Watercolor!

  12. Lorin Holtzman says:

    Definitely getting something in English Meadow to match my Easter Dress!

  13. cdipsokol says:

  16. Heather says:

    Decisions…decisions….one of each!!!

    Can’t wait for Deco Daisy! I need a new tote, this will be perfect!

  18. Kelly says:

    Love the fresh new colors!! Can’t wait to see them next month in person on my trip.

  19. Shellye says:

    I really like the English meadow but I’m loving the Deco Daisy…especially bc of the houndstooth print…classy!

  20. Mady says:

    I would love to see a subtle, softly colored print that goes with most everything!

  21. Jeanne, Oswego, NY says:

    I never which new pattern to choose cause they’re all so awesome! Help!

  22. Emereld2 says:

    I love all of the new prints, but I am disappointed there’s no Navy. Navy is more of a summer color than black. Granted, we did get “Loves Me” a year or so ago, but it seems to me there’s a new black print every season.

    • Julie says:

      If you’re looking for navy, check out Twirly Birds in navy. Not one of the newest colors but still nice. That’s what I’m getting my mom for her April birthday, I agree with you that navy is a good summer color too.

  23. judy h. says:

    I love the water color! Can’t wait to get it. It looks so fresh and watery; gorgeous for spring and summer.

  24. Jennifer says:

    Viva La Vera is AMAZING! I can’t wait for a bag in that pattern. No idea how I’ll choose which bag though..hmm

  25. Latarsha Fisher says:

    I cant wait to get watercolors & deco daisy

  26. Jan says:

    Deco Daisy is awesome!! Can’t wait to see it next week!

  27. Deana says:

    I love all the new patterns… will probably end up with all of them=] love love Vera Bradly! Have a closet full. Always look forward to the new patterns.

  28. julie H says:

    Oh so pretty …. My favorites are English meadow and Watercolor.

  29. Vicki says:

    Loving the Deco Daisy! I’m sure it will be very popular with all the Alabama fan. I hope this pattern comes in a reversible style.

  30. carol says:

    English Meadow is stunning ; ) so lo!vely

  31. Trendy Tonia says:

    Oh I just LOVE all of the NEW colors. I just can’t wait for them to hit the store. 😉

  32. Dr. Lisa says:

    Too many cute choices! I’ll have to have one of each.

  33. says:

    I  English Meadow

  34. Janice Weinberger says:

    Love the new colors – B-day month, birthday money here I COME! DECO DAISY my favorite on the new patterns

  35. Melissa says:

    i would not buy any of these new colors

  36. Limeyaggie says:

    I got the Deco Daisy at Christmas – my Vera Bradley store at Park Meadows Mall (Denver, CO) was a test site. Love, love, love the bag. Looks great with black and is not “too much” pattern.

  37. Sherri says:

    When will there be messenger bags again? The metropolitan looks like a diaper bag. I purchased a number of messenger when they were discontinued last summer; don’t need anything else.

  38. Amber says:

    I am so excited about the Deco Daisy! I can’t wait for it to come out!

  39. Maryann Nalevanko says:

    Watercolor??? English Meadow??? Decisions, decisions.

  40. Samantha V says:

    I am not sure which prints I love, only because I am still absolutely loving the spring collection. I am finding ways to justify my need for totes in Boysenberry, Blue Lagoon, and Lemon Parfait b/c I have the Folkloric Betsy and it’s adorable. Perhaps the spring colors should have been released as summer?

    I am looking forward to seeing more pics of the Deco Daisy – perfect for friends of mine who love red and have upcoming birthdays!!!!

  41. Edwina Brown says:

    I love these 2 color schemec,English Meadow and Watercolor. I’ll have to check them out in person at the store to see how they look in personand see which bag I like best.

  42. Brienne says:

    deco daisy!!! i HAVE to get that in the laptop backpack!! plus it is my school colors! 🙂

  43. Loving the English Meadow and the Watercolor…gorgeous and springy…perfect for Easter/ summer dresses.

  44. Rose says:

    I think that they are all so pretty. I like the water color the best though!!

  45. margie says:

    The English Meadow would make a great baby bag.

  46. Lisa says:

    I really like the Watercolor and English Meadow patterns!!! I can’t wait to see them!!!

  47. Ann says:

    BLISS = Deco Daisy!!!
    LOVE LOVE LOVE this pattern 🙂

  48. kellystar says:

    My vote goes for Deco Daisy…love it!

  49. Teresa says:

    Deco Daisy = ROLL TIDE!

  50. Courtney says:

    All the color are soo cool but i prefer the normal ones they are plain and not exciting. all thought i do like deco dasie it is perfect for the fourth of july cant wait for it to come out!

  51. Robyn says:

    Deco Daisy will be awesome for football season!!!! Go Georgia Bulldogs!!!

    • Sallie says:

      Gooooo Dawgs! My thoughts exactly with Deco Daisy!

      • Margaret says:

        Always – Go Dawgs! And if we have a season like this year’s, you can pull your tote over your head and still support the Dawgs in your black and red. More chic than a paper bag . . . I don’t think I’ll be able to wait til football season for the Deco Daisy, though.

  52. Berta says:

    The red-grounded patterns are almost always my favorites. Deco Daisy is definitely a hit! It will sell out quickly and be discontinued before you know it!!!! 🙂 Hey, I like someone’s comment above on the metropolitan bag…Seems like there are a few styles that are discontinued that shouldn’t be. I have to say the Get Carried Away bag was going to be the savior bag for me and my 17″ laptop and trips through the airport to the plane. Welp, talk about DIAPER BAG. It has bottle holders in the corners of the bag that are lined with vinyl. Extremely disappointed in that one.

    But, the summer colors are great!

  53. \ELAINE says:


  54. margaret McCready says:

    I Love them all, for different reasons. My favorite is deco daisy!
    woo la la…..

  55. Linda B. says:

    Personally, I am looking forward to ‘English Meadow’
    Hoping for beach towel/flip flops combination. It ‘s a great gift!

  56. Megan P says:

    I know I want a new Sophie bag, but it’s going to be really hard to choose just one color!

  57. Kimberly says:

    I Love the Deco Daisey, I was told I have enough Vera Bradley Purses, awahhhh NEVER !!!!! I am getting one……more 🙂

  58. Becky says:

    Best new colors in a long time!
    Now, if we can just get the old, large backpack back!

  59. Tonya says:

    Love the Viva La Vera and the English Meadow! Going to be hard to choose just 1 for me.

  60. Jill says:

    The Deco Daisy is fabulous. The houndstooths lining is gorgeous. I can’t wait till it comes out. Now I now what color to get the Vera bag in!

  61. kleg59 says:

    love the deco daisy print!!!

  62. kbecker says:

    I really like Deco Daisy, I guess really because I am in Interior Architect and I’ve learned about Art Nouveau and really enjoy it. But aside from that one, I really enjoy Watercolor and English Meadow 🙂

  63. Kimberly says:

    I LOVE Deco Daisey – I was told I had ENOUGH Vera Bradley bags, awahhhh Never !!!! I will give up shoes for more 🙂 I need readers in Deco Daisy – hope they make them in this new AWSOME pattern…hint hint

  64. Patty says:

    I love, love, love English Meadow. They are all neat.

  65. Kimberly says:

    It will be HARD to choose and my daughter will LOVE a new one as well !!!

  66. Pat McMorran says:

    Avery and Zoe can’t wait for the catalog to come out.

  67. Shawna says:

    I have been buying Vera for over 16 years since high school and I have been waiting for the last 2 seasons for something to grab my eye but this summer collection I have to say for me is a disappointment. I miss the pinks with greens. Please Vera staff if you are listening please Do something different then the 60’s. I’m a 1990′ child and we are in 2011. I’m sorry to be so harsh. But I’m still wearing my petal pink collection because nothing has grabbed my eye but also until you came out with a new style of a purse too. Thanks

  68. Makayla says:

    I am a vera bradley holic, i have almost every style and item, summer 2011 does’nt thrill me that much my favorite on is the deco daisy

    • Makayla says:

      I like your name! 🙂 You even spell it the same way! How unusual! I always see Mikayla, Micheala, or Mickayla.

  69. Carole says:

    English Meadow gets my vote, with Watercolor a close second..

  70. Suzi says:

    What happened to the patterns in some of the more traditional colors you used to do; navy blues, paisley patterns? Not everyone is a fan of florals and bright colors.

  71. BBrown says:

    Red and black is my fave so that new deco daisy is definitely in my future!

  72. Doris Murphy says:

    I love Deco Daisy since I’m a red person. They are all great colors but I know I can’t buy them all.

  73. Raquel says:

    Watercolor is calling my name!!! Can’t wait to add this to my collections!

  74. missy says:

    I’m loving the Deco Daisy!!! Red is my fav color!!

  75. Ashley Duke says:

    English Meadow is my fav! looking forward to it!

  76. Kim Tallau says:

    OMG! I’m in love! Four new beautiful designs to add to the collection…..if I had to choose…..Watercolor is my “fav” ….. Sooooo romantic! English meadow will mix n match so nicely with all my Lemon Parfait! Viva la Vera is so much fun and Deco Daisy is simply elegant. O how Vera makes choosing so very hard!

  77. Elizabeth C. says:

    I enjoyed seeing the preview of the new patterns! I think Vera should make a pattern with turquoise, pale pink, and white!

  78. Becky Hollar says:

    I love all of the new colors ,it’s going to be hard to decide what I want first….

  79. Jennifer says:

    I can’t wait to see the Frill line for these prints!!!!! Bring it on!

  80. Jamie says:

    Love the looks of English Meadow. But i can’t wait to see them in person on the purses. I get places were they tell me they can order the purse for me but i really need to see it in person first. Each pattern looks different on each bag.

  81. brantley says:

    love the WATER COLOR!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cant wait to see it in frill!!!!!!!!!!!

  82. Michelle says:

    Love watercolor! My daughter is on page 26 Ella! I am a proud mommy! I need watercolor in every style!

  101. MarshaMarsha says:

    Nothing makes me feel better than seeing new Vera! Well second thought, having a new Vera Bradley would even be better. Can’t wait to get mine.

  102. TxMom says:

    Oh I think I love them all ! Best colors & prints ever ! Looking forward to seeing them in person !!

  103. Wendy says:

    Daisy Deco, Daisy Deco Daisy Deco!!! Yeah! and a Hip Hip to.

  104. ypu keep coming up withmore and more fabulous colors. Soon there will not be room for clothes in my closet, just Vera handbags, totes, and luggage!

  105. You keep coming out with more and more fabulous colors. Soon there won’t be room in my closet for clothes!

  106. Wendy says:

    I moved my husbands clothes out of our closet and into the hallway so i would have more room. I mean really, he doesn’t carry handbags and I do. It was important. So far only a little complaint. From him, and happiness on my side.

  107. Laurie Foster says:

    I am so excited that my daughter wants to attend Alabama in the fall…Roll Tide and go Deco Daisy!

  108. Wren's Mommy says:

    It is amazing how certain color combinations speak to the soul.”Watercolor” brings me back to the way I feel spotting the first pop of spring color in the flower beds.Spring is such a feast for the eyes & the soul.I can’t wait to purchase a bag in that print!

  109. JerseyPrincess says:

    I loooooooove the Watercolor. I just bought a Frannie but might have to get another Frannie just when the Watercolor comes out. It’s so gorgeous! At least Frannie is small and not too expensive – Watercolor, come soon! (:

  110. jean spencer says:

    Deco Daisy looks great. I like the summer collection.

  111. Savannah AKA Vera Bradley's BFFL Doy says:

    I absolutely love the new colors… I love, love, love, “watercolors and deco daisy”

  115. Barb Adcock says:

    Got to have some Watercolor and English Meadow!! Love those spring colors.

    I’m thinking in the description for Viva la Vera, where it says (bold, bright primary colors), maybe she meant the the primary colors of the pattern were bold and bright—not that they were bold, bright primary colors. Just my opinion. But seriously—-I’m loving the English Meadow

  118. Denise Goswick says:

    Love all the new colors….might have to sample them all!

  119. misa says:

    Love Watercolor the best!

  120. Jan Kotila says:

    oh gee. I am sadly disappointed in the patterns and color combos….I guess I will have to wait until fall….

  121. ross oneill says:

    goona have to scoop the viva la vera for my wife! she loves vera bradley and she loves bright and colorful so thagt is her new favorite! i would also prefer to get her a deco daisy!

  122. Tiffany says:

    So, I’m having a Really hard time deciding on which one to choose! I mean they’re All so Beautiful! Decisions….Decisions…

  123. Ann Witkowski says:

    I like my Vera, but I don’t like these, particularly English Meadow. Frumpy.

  124. ross oneill says:

    also could surprise her with a watercolor she’d would probably really like that one too

  125. Kris says:

    Meh…not a fan, either. The prints look so cheesy and cheap. Reminds me of polyester housecoats from the early 70’s. Generic. Bummer.
    Hope for something classic and feminine come fall.

  126. Michelle says:

    I love the deco daisy print. The hounstooth interior is spectacular – can’t wait to see the new prints next week!

  127. Claudea Landry says:

    A Vera Bradley store near New Orleans would be great! Hammond, Louisiana would be the perfect place, equidistant from New Orleans and Baton Rouge. I would love to work in it! Laissez les bon temps rouler!

  128. I love English Meadow and Viva La Vera……Will be hard to choose! My husband keeps asking, “how many purses does one woman need?”. How do you answer that?

  129. HalosDusty says:

    I am so Viva La Crazy for Viva La Vera…happy happy happy!!

  130. lisa says:

    love bright colors anyways how cut

  131. Ellie says:

    I love the new watercolor pattern!!!!! But Boysenberry and Very Berry Paisley are still my favorite!!!! When are the new products going to come out?

  132. darkblackka says:


    Is it cool if I use the pictures from your summer catalog on blog.. Nice collection btw..

  133. mendy says:

    i like the watercolor and daisy 🙂

  134. LSUgrad says:

    I agree Louisiana needs a VB store but not in Hammond. Hammond is not a good local for it. It needs to be in Corporate Towne Cebter in Baton Rouge so you can attract the college crowd as well as the metro city area. Baton Rouge is more populated now than New Orleans and Hammond doesn’t have the population volume to support a good VB store. Also an area like Praireville or Gonzales would be better than Hammond.
    PS. Dont care for ANY of these prints. Waiting for the fall line to come out. Now those are some prints where every one of them is good!

  135. beingzhenya says:

    Awww your videos are so cute!

  136. Katherine says:

    Please put a store into Southern CA (San Diego!!). I would like to see these in person and the best we have is a tiny display at a Hallmark store 40 miles from my house! ARGH. You need more of a presence in So Cal!

  137. Kristen says:

    OMG!! I cannot wait for Deco Daisy – this pattern may take my Vera addiction to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL!

  138. Shauna Allen says:

    I am so loving Deco Daisy!!! It is perfect for this Delta Sigma Theta, Alabama Alum. Roll Tide!!!

  139. Pat Telander says:

    Can’t wait to pick out my new spring Vera bag from these vibrant new patterns!

    purchase it soon.

  141. sabrina says:

    VIVA LA VERA …the name says it all!! Gotta have it!

  142. Josie says:

    I love Deco Daisy–red and purple are my 2 favorite colors. For a softer look I will have to get Watercolor. I think these will be my new favorites.

  176. Ruth says:

    Can’t wait to get my bag in watercolor. Love it!

  177. Sue says:

    “Viva La Vera” is calling my name! It just screams fun 🙂

  178. Cuddles says:

    I really like the Viva la Vera and the Watercolor. But I don’t like the Deco Daisy for summer. It seems more like a fall pattern with the dark red and navy blue. I’m grateful for more summer like patterns with purple in it. The Simply violet is just too dark for summer, but it’s perfect for now. And I’m tired of my raspberry fizz for summer so I need something else and I suspect that Viva la Vera will be the next color I purchase.

  179. Rani says:

    The ladies in my family are all addicted to these lovely bags. My 7 year old son keeps asking why they can’t make something besides ties, etc. It’s a girl thing, is all I can reply. I get really excited over the new colors and trends. Thanks for this good addiction!

  180. Hello says:

    Howdy y’all. How ya doing out there t’night? I am like’n all the prints here except that horrendous Deco Daisy! What was she think’n?

  181. Annemarie says:

    Deco Daisy is the best. Cannot wait to see the various choices in that color in person. When is the unveiling?

  182. SweetCheeks says:

    When are you Vera girls going to make a man purse?

  183. Hannah says:

    I like the English Meadow myself!

  185. Dianna says:

    Diggin Dat Dazzlin Doggone ” Deco Daisy”!

  186. Heather says:

    I’m slightly disappointed in the new colors. The only one that I might like when I see it in person is the Deco Daisy. The last set of patterns were way better. It always seems like hit of miss for me. Either I love just about all the new patterns of I dislike just about all the new patterns.

  187. Jen says:

    I love Deco Daisy! I have been waiting for a red! But loving Watercolor, too! Oh well, just have to get two!
    Does anyone know when they will be available?

  188. Kirsan says:

    Red is so trendy right now!! I love Deco Daisy! 🙂

  189. Mems says:

    I Dissapointed with all of them. Nothing has struck my fance since last fall. Im going with Brighton for a summer purse. Hopefully Fall 2011 will be much better.

  190. Meggie says:

    I think I will be purchasing the Pencil Box in English Meadow, but I am most definitely as impressed as I was with the Spring collection
