Vera Bradley Giveaway

Vera Bradley Giveaway

Actresses Isla Fisher and Reese Witherspoon have one, as do the fashion-forward girls on Pretty Little Liars, Desperate Housewives, and 27 Dresses. Four years ago, more than 40,000 women from across the nation traveled to Fort Wayne, Indiana for the annual Outlet Sale. And a special pattern for breast cancer awareness has raised over $2 million to date.

We’re talking about Vera Bradley handbags, beach bags, and accessories, and now you can shop like the celebrities—while supporting a great company—at Vera Bradley at Mall of America, open on level two. In addition to a distinctive collection of signature handbags, Vera Bradley designs paper and gifts, rolling luggage, innovative limited edition products, and eyewear. (Visit verabradley.com for more information.)

We love that the idea for this successful company began in 1982 when Patricia Miller and Barbara Bradley were awaiting a flight and noticed a lack of feminine carry-on luggage. Why does it seem like the best ideas often come to life in airports? Leave a comment below about your own ideas for making travel more fun, less complicated, or more efficient and you’ll be registered to win your very own Vera Bradley East-West tote bag and coordinating wallet—in a cute Happy Snails fall pattern—valued at $52.

Contest closes on Friday, Oct. 7 at 5 p.m. Winner will be notified through email.

I prefer any Vera Bradley bag that is a light weight fabric. This makes it less fatiguing while walking and waiting for my flights.

I love the rich colors that she uses in her bags. They make traveling a real treat.

Have a travel toiletries bag already packed. Refresh the items after each trip. Make sure the containers are 3 oz size. Saves time and space.

Vera Bradley's "small duffel" is a terrific flight carry-on, plus you'll likely get oodles of compliments. (fashionable *and* functional)

I've been looking for a bag this size to carry my books and documents in. This bag looks perfect for doing just that!
If I'm the lucky winner, this would be my first Vera Bradley bag!

I'm petite and travel about 3 weeks out of the month for work. When I travel, my carry on needs to contain my laptop, notebooks, my wallet/essentials, a water-bottle/snacks, and can get very heavy and hurt my back! I am looking for a feminine bag that is easier to carry, stylish unlike a backpack, and made for a petite frame.
