Pandora Sample Sale on Rue La La!

panodra-rue-la-la-sample-saleI can’t believe it but Rue La La is holding another Pandora Trunk Sale!  This is the third time in the last few months that recently retired Pandora jewelry has appeared on the designer sample sale website and I love it.  The prices are about half off of retail and include some of the candy cane Muranos, XL beads, and gold charms.  I just picked up a few pieces I didn’t even know I wanted and there’s nothing better than a sale, even when you’re at sea on a Pandora Cruise!

If you’re unfamiliar with Rue La La, they’re a by invitation only web retailer featuring some of the most exclusive designers of the day and if you don’t have an account with them, you can use my Rue La La invite to sign on.  Unfortunately, they do not ship outside the US (not even Canada) so if you want something desperately, you’ll need to find a US friend.  Good luck and happy shopping!

    OMG! Rue La La, thanks so much! Enjoy the Cruise! Next year I am there!!!!!
    I only wish I went to Rue La La the first day you mentioned it, hope I didn’t miss out on anything.

    • Vanna

      Are these new or used Pandora samples on Rue La La?

      • Leann

        They’re brand new. 🙂

      • Vanna

        Thank you, Leann.

    • Leann

      I can’t believe they had a sale while we were on the cruise. Double whammy, lol!

  • Cindy Musarra Zultowski

    thanks, great price on teh candy stripes!

  • Jeanette

    This is the only way I will ever have a bracelet with gold charms! This time around I bought the gold cross.

    • Leann

      Great prices on gold, right?! Love Rue!

  • Tracy

    My goodness.

    Between this and the Trollbeads Trunk Show, it’s been a very busy (and expensive) shopping day 🙂

    • Leann

      You’re telling me ;). So happy for this sale. 🙂

  • Jeanne

    Does anybody know what the difference is between the 14K & Silver Star Charm shown on Rue La La and Golden Star, No. 790563, that is in the current Pandora catalog? I’m think the one on Rue La La is bigger, but I can’t tell.

    • Leann

      Yes, the XL charm is the one that was retired and on Rue La La.

  • Elyse

    Thanks for the heads up- I picked up 2 necklaces. Sounds like you are having a fantastic time Pandora shopping all around. I do hope you post pix of ALL your finds!

    • Leann

      Hehe…Might run out of camera space, lol.

  • Brenda

    So sad that Rue La La doesn’t ship to Canada. We never get a break up here… 🙁

    • Leann


  • Joan

    Another sad Canadian here. I want the citrine cabochons so much 🙁

  • nelia almeida

    thanks Leann i so appreciate your help and glad you are having a wonderful time

    • Leann

      No problem! So happy to help :).

  • Christine

    I’m curious Leann, have you ever actually purchased Pandora charms from Rue La La before? Because I’m very skeptical as to the authenticity of these charms. First of all, they are not an authorized Pandora online retailer. Second of all, the discounts seem too good to be true. I mean, a $625 Pandora watch for $249.90?!

    I’m wary because if you read the various online reviews of this website, you’ll find stories about women who have purchased purses of various brands from Rue La La only to find out they were fakes. And I saw another story about someone who bought an expensive watch (not Pandora) only to find out that the manufacturer wouldn’t honor the warranty because Rue La La isn’t authorized to sell them. I’d imagine it would be the same with Pandora.

    Just my opinion, but I would avoid this site. It’s like the old adage goes: if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

    • Leann

      Christine, I’ve purchased from this site every time they’ve had a sale and have not had a bad experience. I joined Rue La La in 2007 and it’s a trusted retailer. Also, a fan questioned the sale during the Pandora Cruise Q&A session and they confirmed that they are indeed working with Rue. In fact, Pandora operates two outlets on the east coast which also sell the retired charms for a discount.

      • Christine

        Thanks for the reply! If that’s the case, I just wish that Pandora would add them to their authorized online retailers list. Then skeptics like me wouldn’t be so wary to purchase from them! Oh well, in the end, I did end up getting one of the petite watches for less that $99.85 with shipping. I’ve been wanting a Pandora watch for awhile, but haven’t bought one because of the high price tags. I came *this close* to getting one of the Imagine Grand watches, but I just don’t know if I could ever get used to wearing a watch that large on my small wrist, lol.

      • Leann

        Well, I guess since they don’t sell on there all the time they don’t have them listed on the authorized retailers note. The watches are a great deal, I got an Imagine Grand last time and I agree, it’s a too big on me. 🙁

      • Rebecca

        Where are the outlets?

      • Leann

        Delaware and Virginia, I think.

  • Morgan

    Sadly they don’t ship to Alaska (where I am) or Hawaii- even though we are part of the US!

    Thank goodness for friends in the south.

    Picked myself up an Orange Candy Cane and a Wooden Flower Bead- two I have been looking high and low for without paying an arm or a leg.

    Hope they’ll get some more Pandora in soon, would like to add a few bracelets to my collection.

    Hope to see what you picked out soon!

    • Leann

      When I try to use PayPal, they even say I’m not in an eligible shipping area :O. I’m glad you have a friend to help you! They usually only get the retired jewelry to sell.

  • rachel

    is it over already? i cant find anything!

    • rachel

      hm the sale must have closed..

    • Leann

      It is :(. It was on for about 4 days.

  • Ashley

    I indulged but I just couldn’t resist the price!! I got the retired gold Aquamarine trio charm. For years now I’ve had my eye on that particular charm back when it wasn’t even retired yet so I’m super happy for being able to snag it up! 🙂 I really can’t wait till it gets here. This is my first purchase with Rue La La too.

    Leann, glad you and your husband had a safe and wonderful time on the Pandora cruise! 🙂

    • Leann

      Yay! I love sales, I can never resist. I was so exasperated that Pandora was on Rue La La while I was on the cruise with limited internet, but I managed! 😉

  • Liz

    I bought the PANDORA 14K & Silver Diamond Charm off of the Ruelala sample sale. It’s gorgeous but does anyone know how to find the actual name of the charm?

    • Leann

      Hi Liz, why don’t you send me a picture or link and I can help you. 🙂

  • Lynn Rosack

    I read Leann’s blog entry late, but not too late to score 2 great deals from the Ruelala sale- a large Honey Showstopper Bead and a pair of Peridot Compose Earrings. I received them a few days ago and they’re beautiful! I can’t wait for the next Trunk Show.

    • Leann

      Wonderful! I can’t wait too :D.

  • Rhona

    Unfortunately for us outside the US we can’t even sign in to have a look because we we cannot put our postcode in.
