Back to School with Vera Bradley!

It’s back to school time! And our experts are here to help you plan all your back to school essentials!

emily collageEmily will be leaving in August to start her freshmen year in college! She’s heading to school with a Lighten-Up Expandable Travel Bag in Rio Stripes because it’s waterproof & a Pixie Blooms Large Duffle because it’s a BIG bag! She will store her make-up, jewelry, watches & flair accessories in her Classic Black Hanging Organizer. Heading off to her 7:30 am class will require coffee in her Midnight Paisley Travel Tumbler & she’ll use it to keep her hydrated the rest of the day. And speaking of class, her Katalina Pink Agenda will keep her organized along with her Study Buddy in Katalina Pink. She’ll tote her laptop in a Katalina Pink Laptop Case ensuring it stays safe. She plans on using a Classic Black Lanyard to hold her dorm room keys & she’s anticipating the October release of the Campus Double ID in Concerto to hold her student ID & driver’s license.

brianna collageBrianna is a college student on the go & commutes to campus. Since she carries all her supplies for a full day of class, she uses the Lighten Up Large Backpack in Sierra. She loves that it is spacious & lightweight! She always has her Katalina Blues umbrella handy because she never knows when she’ll get caught in a rain storm. She considers the Student Agenda in Parisian Paisley a necessity for keeping all her classes straight! She doesn’t like to carry a backpack & a purse, so uses the All In One Crossbody in Classic Black to hold all her personal essentials.

Maggie is in high school and she is super organized so she has a long back to school list! She carries all her school supplies in a Parisian Paisley Vera. She loves all the pockets & that she can throw it over her shoulder & be ready to go! Maggie likes the Classic Black Zipmaggie collage ID & Lanyard to carry her ID & keys. Inside her Vera, you’ll find a Parisian Paisley Pencil Pouch for her pencils & small supplies; a Study Buddy in Katalina Pink to help study anatomy; and an Eyeglass Case in Katalina Pink Diamonds to protect her glasses. Her back to school essentials include the Katalina Pink Mini Notebook with Pocket, Parisian Paisley Mechanical Pencil Set and Dual Tip Highlighters. She would be no where without her Parisian Paisley Student Agenda (at least nowhere on time)! She doesn’t want another cracked phone screen so she protects her phone with a Snap-on Phone Case in Rio. She loves the new style of the Lighten Up Lunch Cooler in Katalina Pink & stays hydrated all day with her Parisian Paisley Travel Tumbler. And if she ever gets caught in the rain, her go-to is the Pixie Blooms Bubble Umbrella!

haleigh collageHaleigh is also a high school student and her favorite bag to tote all her back to school essentials is the Vera in Classic Black. She loves all the inside pockets to help organize her school supplies. Haleigh loves the cool color tones of Katalina Blues and will use the Katalina Blues Agenda & Click Pens to keep her schedule organized. She holds her keys on a Katalina Blues lanyard and loves that the pattern sticks out inside her bag making them always easy to find!

 

Samantha is in middle school and she’s going to be prepared when she starts the eighth grade! She’ll tote all her supplies in a Katalina Pink Diamonds backpack with a Katalina Pink luggage tag attached.  samantha collageIn her backpack, you’ll find a Katalina Pink Mini Notebook with Pockets and a Katalina Pink Pencil Pouch carrying her Dual Tip Highlighters, Katalina Pink Click Pens & Mechanical Pencils. She’s going to use a Katalina Pink Student Agenda to write down her assignments and a Study Buddy in Katalina Pink to make flash cards. When she brings her lunch to school, she’ll tote it in a Pixie Blooms Lunch Bunch & when she buys, she’ll carry her lunch money in a Katalina Pink Coin Purse. She’ll use a Katalina Pink Diamonds Loop Keychain to carry her house keys and a Pixie Blooms Lanyard to hold her ID. She’s protecting her glasses with a Katalina Pink Eyeglass Case; her iPad with a Pixie Confetti Tablet Sleeve; and her iphone with a Pixie Blooms Snap-on Case.  And when those rainy days crop up, she’ll use her Katalina Pink Umbrella!

lilly collageLilly is in grade school & headed to first grade. Lilly holds a special place in our heart because she is our niece. After many years of boys in the family, we’re glad to finally have a girl heading to school who loves to carry Vera Bradley! Lilly is carrying all her school supplies in a Katalina Pink Ultimate Backpack. The smaller backpack size is perfect for the little ones headed to school. She will “take” her lunch to school in a Katalina Pink Diamonds Lunch Bunch.

Good luck to everyone headed back to school. Stop by the store and let us help you find the perfect essentials to start your school year off on the right foot!
