Pretty Prints Faceoff: Office Edition (Lilly Pulitzer v. Vera Bradley)

Alright so you know that you are the effect of 9-to-5 office life when you get excited about the release of the 2014 agendas! I can't deny that I got beyond excited when I saw the agendas on the Vera Bradley website and received an email from Lilly Pulitzer that their new designs were available to order.

Vera Bradley and Lilly Pulitzer are both style houses that are known for their vibrant designs and iconic patterns, and their new agendas are no different. Vera Bradley's 2014 Agenda comes in 3 patterns: Plum Crazy, Lilli Bell, and Go Wild. Meanwhile, Lilly Pulitzer 2014 Agenda comes in 5: New Green Coronado Crab, True Navy Tiger Lilly, True Navy Tusk in Sun, Turquoise Let's Cha Cha, and Tropical Pink Lulu.

Pictured below are Lilli Bell and then Tropical Pink Lulu

The Vera Bradley 2014 Agendas are $25 and 7" x 9" x 1.5". I compared it to Lilly Pulitzer's 2014 Agendas in the large size with dimensions of 7.35" x 8.75" x 1" for $28. At similar price ranges and with similar features (I mean, aren't all agendas essentially equal?), it really comes down to preference for this one.

Which brand's agendas do you prefer: Lilly's or Vera's? My vote is on Lilly all the way (Turquoise Let's Cha Cha is just TOO CUTE) but I think that both brands are pretty rad. Let me know which brand YOU choose in the comments!


  1. Oh I like these I think I prefer Lilly's print a bit more I am going to have to check this out!

    1. Meegan, I totally agree! Something about Lilly's prints are just always fabulous.

      I do own a few Vera Bradley pieces though, while I have never actually purchased a Lilly product yet. Just envied from afar :)
