And be sure to enter two contests for great stays at two Northern Michigan resorts:

Vera Bradley Grand Getaway: You don’t have to carry the colorful, quilted floral bags and accessories that Vera Bradley is known for to win this contest. But if you’re familiar with Mackinac Island and the Grand Hotel you’ll understand why the company chose to feature its products at the Northern Michigan locations for its Spring 2012 catalog.

The top prize is a trip for four (including airfare within the continental U.S.), ferry ride to Mackinac Island and a three-night stay at Grand Hotel, and more. Plus, four winners will receive a Vera Bradley Grand Traveler bag.

U.S. citizens 18 and older may enter online by March 10, 2012; trip must be taken in June 2012…just in time for the annual Mackinac Island Lilac Festival, June 8-17, 2012.

One More Contest:

You can’t win if you don’t enter!
