We’re well into October and there are a few exciting promotions coming up in November! The most highly anticipated is the 2012 Black Friday Charm, named for the first day of the Christmas shopping season when stores can expect to see their profits in the black (positive). I remember how excited I was to get my hands on the “exclusive” Midnight Hearts charm because it was advertised as a limited edition. Given the marketing by Pandora I assumed that there would be a small number and sold out quickly, but the company must have over-estimated the demand because even a year after, these can still be sometimes found in stores. I’m sure the two-tone and price contributed to its lackluster performance, but nonetheless, it felt pretty good to get a North American exclusive charm.
This year, there is going to be another special charm released on November 23rd, and while the picture has been kept under wraps, I have heard some rumors describing it as an all-silver present with red enamel bow for $55 with no year engraved on it. There will also be a Black Friday gift set including a bracelet ($65), 2 twinkle twinkle clips ($110), and the mysterious charm ($55) for $200 with a savings of $30. Honestly, I love the clips and I’m a sucker for exclusive charms so I’ll be getting this set, but from the description of the bead I won’t set my expectations too high.
In addition to the Black Friday Gift Set, there will be a couple of ring gift sets offered from November 1 – 23. Both are lovely, and the first one is called Midnight Enchantment which includes the silver bubble ring ($35), black melanite ring ($80), and black ice CZ ring ($60) for $150 for a savings of $25.
The second set is called Moonlit Serenade which includes the heart ring ($35), mother of pearl path ring ($55), and twist ring ($30) for $100 for a savings of $20. These two sets contain excellent stacks and I think I just might have to buy one of these!
Speaking of rings, Perlen also started a new promotion today running through November 4th – buy 2 rings, get 1 free! All you have to do is purchase 2 rings and write in the comment box upon checkout which ring (of lesser or equal value) you’d like for free and the size. A great deal if you’ve been thinking about purchasing Pandora rings.
