Edison Nouveau Premiere Lilac Spring 2015 SE Fountain Pen

Spring has officially begun and the flowers will soon be blossoming, which means it’s time to announce our color choice for the Spring 2015 Edison Nouveau Premiere fountain pen! This season’s color is Lilac, a pearlescent soft purple with white swirls.

The $149 seasonal Premiere is a special pen that we produce exclusively with Edison Pen Co. for a 3-month period, and once that period ends we discontinue the color. Lilac will be available from now through (approximately) June 2015. This is the 6th seasonal Premiere we’ve done since we began. We love it because we get to pick more adventurous colors than we’d typically be inclined with a pen that is perhaps more universally appealing. 

Special Features:

  • Translucent cast-resin material, shows ink level (especially in eyedropper mode)
  • EF, F, M, B, 1.1, 1.5 stainless steel polished nibs
  • Nibs are interchangeable and additional ones are sold individually
  • Standard international cartridge/converter filling (converter included)
  • Eyedropper convertible for increased ink capacity

Inks that match the Lilac:

The Lilac is a beautiful addition to our Edison Nouveau Premiere lineup, and we’re pleased to offer it to you exclusively at GouletPens.com for $149 for the next three months. Check out more specific details and specs on our site, and feel free to ask questions and leave comments below.

  • Thorin Messer

    That is stunning. And I really can’t figure out how I missed the cherry blossom! Also incredibly beautiful.

    • i agree with you, i love this color and the cherry blossom. i wish i could find these colors in other shapes though.

    I do have a cappucino Premiere since summer 2014, but it doesnΒ΄t fit the long cartridges. Was there a change recently?

    Thanks

  • Denise Rogers

    Very beautiful. The Lamy Neon Green doesn’t tempt me, but this certainly does.

    • Madigan

      Hi Denise! This pen is beautiful…

  • beautiful … wishin’ I had a spare $150!

  • Okay this is definitely in my wheelhouse! Gorgeous purplish lilac and you can make it an eyedropper (really it was seeing the ink slosh back and forth inside the pen that tugged on my ‘You Need This’ chain).

    • Madigan

      Hi Kenny! I knew you’d like this one with all the purple talk on the NeonLime post. Edisons really are fantastic. πŸ™‚

    I’m so glad that you announced the Spring 2015 edition today – and a great choice it is. I’m sure it will be very popular. (I ordered my Lilac this afternoon…) I love the concept of the Seasonal Edition and can hardly wait for each new release!

    • Madigan

      Hey there! We’ve gotten really positive responses so far with the series. It’s always fun to see what the new pen will be!

  • Greg Moore

    There are some really talented artists at Goulet! Very nicely done Caitlin!

  • kjb651

    Outstanding work, Caitlin, and also wonderful photographs. Such a great way to demonstrate the new Lamy CopperOrange fountain pen and the new Lamy ink, too. A win-win-win!

  • psyleigh

    Beautiful color choice.

  • psyleigh

    Beautiful color choice.

  • Cathy F.

    Never mind–I see the regular Vac has its own nibs and does not share with the 580, so I am sure the Vac Mini will follow suit.

  • yesterdaysgoddess

    Holy smokes this is so beautiful! Oh my god… I’ve never spent this much on a pen, but I’m seriously considering it!

    • Lisa Smith

      SO WORTH IT!! The Winter Pine was my first splurge on a $150~ish pen and it’s one of my daily writers. I haven’t spent that much again, but I’ll find a way to get this one too πŸ™‚

      • yesterdaysgoddess

        Oh, I know, right?? I hope they’re not sold out in the next month, I’m thinking I might buy this for myself as a grad school decision present….! =]

        • Madigan

          We are planning on carrying them until June, so unless they are insanely popular, you should be ok! πŸ™‚

        • Lisa Smith

          the perfect graduation gift!! I don’t graduate with my MPA until next spring but I know where I’m going for PhD so I can use that excuse too right? ;D

          • yesterdaysgoddess

            Do it!!! It’s a great excuse! I’m trying to decide between this and a dress i really want from Anthropologie… or maybe I’ll just splurge and get both πŸ˜›
            I have to say, I normally don’t like companies coming out with girly colors of things just for women (did you ever see those stupid pink Bic pens)? But I actually love that Goulet is doing some ‘feminine’ colors… I feel like most fountain pens are quite masculine in color tone if not neutral, so it’s nice to have some other options available =]

          • Lisa Smith

            Oh man!! Get both!! Dresses from Anthropologie are another weakness of mine!! πŸ™‚ And it’s your duty to counteract those stupid pink Bics!!!

  • yesterdaysgoddess

  • Lisa Smith

    I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS!!! Next on my grail list was an Edison with the translucent mint or lavender, so this is just PERFECT! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • Madigan

      Hi Lisa! We’re excited too!! It’s such a gorgeous shade of purple. πŸ™‚

    This pen does force me to think. I’ve been considering a pen this color as my expensive pen for the spring. I’d pretty well settled on a Pilot Custom 74 or maybe a Delta Fusion (a little over my limit). But, I like this one and it comes with more nib options than the others, and the ability to change nibs with other pens I already own.

    So, I guess three pens are competing for the spring purchase now!

    • Madigan

      Hey there! Those are all great options, but with this one being a limited run you may want to go for it sooner rather than later. Just a thought to help with your decision! πŸ™‚

  • Lilac Pen Adorer

    What was the pretty color you used when you converted the pen to an eyedropper format and swished it back and forth! It looked like blue rather than purple! Great effect! I am so tempted to buy this pen. It is beautiful!

    • Madigan

      Hey there! It’s actually not really anything. It’s about three drops of Liberty’s Elysium in a bottle of water. Brian uses it for all his demo pens because it shows up better than actual ink. πŸ™‚

  • Otter

    That is an incredibly beautiful pen! If I was fonder of the style I would buy it for sure. But in any case, perfect choice for spring!

    • Madigan

      Hey there Otter! Do you have another Edison style you prefer? I love the color too!

      • Otter

        Hi Madigan,
        I tend to prefer the more “squarish” cuts, like the Beaumont style, rather than the pointy ends of this pen. However that color is a definite winner and I sort of wish people wouldn’t call it “feminine.” I’m a woman who happens to think real men like purple (and pink) too! *LOL* πŸ˜€

  • Kathleen Fowler

    I, too, have been waiting for the TWSBI Vac 700 replacement stub nibs to come in. I hope someone can give us a rough idea of how much longer it is likely to be. I have bought two of these pens from you guys and they are my absolute favorites!

  • AR

    Hi, I’m answering your question about cartridges. I’m pretty strongly biased against cartridges. For me one of the huge benefits of fountain pens is the ink color variety and with cartridge fill pens I think I lose out on that. This is one big reason that despite liking the form factor I haven’t gotten into the Kaweco sport line…

  • We've been trying to get updates, sorry for the delay! I updated the blog post with what we know, which is basically that TWSBI won't have any more stock of anything until the end of April, so what we have on our site now is all we'll have until the end of the month. TWSBI wasn't getting restocked for basically the whole month of Feb. due to the Chinese New Year, and they're feeling the effects of that now. I'm so sorry, we have everything on order, we just have to wait until they have it to send us!

  • We honestly just don't know at this point, we've never seen a Vac-mini for ourselves.

  • yup, this is pretty much what's happened with all their pens…they get excited and share prototypes long before they're ready for production, which means we wait a long time for it! This is actually just about how long it takes to develop all fountain pens, brands work on them for 1-2 years. TWSBI just shares the info WAY earlier than most, so it seems like you have to wait forever for it.

  • yeah, I know. It'll be a while πŸ˜›

  • end of April, unfortunately πŸ˜›

  • awesome! We're waiting to carry them too, when they're ready for us!

  • I don't think they will be, based on the pictures. But I can't say until I have it in my hands

  • I think so, not 100% sure though.

  • One can never have too many blue pens.

  • Lisa Smith

    I just got the Vac 700 in blue … so we'll see πŸ˜‰

  • yesterdaysgoddess

    Hi! I was wondering if you guys might know when they’ll be back in stock! I’m desperate to get one – my parents have said they will buy it as a birthday present!! =] I put my email in to be notified, but you will get more in stock, won’t you?
    Thank you!!

    Any closer to the Eco release date? It seems everyone is being quiet about it again, and I really want to know if I need to wait too much longer before it comes out!
