Speaking of markdowns, Remix Lulu Light Hoodies are marked down to $69. I think they overstocked on these for this area. They also have a large selection of regular Remix Hoodies in stock now. We'll see how well these sell. Most of the ladies in front of me in line waiting for the store to open were in their 30s and 40s. When I am out and about, I never spot anyone wearing Lululemon hoodies. Most of the ladies in Orange County wear either surf hoodies like Roxy or Volcom or status hoodies like Da-Nang, Juicy, or Twisted Heart. I think the American Lululemon market, or at least my local Southern California market, from what I have observed is dominated by women in their 30s and 40s. Honesly, who else can afford $100 workout pants?
I did try on the Run: Hills Pullover in the photo above. I love the look of the silver stripes and white. This version is made of luxtreme with cool mesh body mapping inserts. I love this top but I really can't justify it since I don't run. However, now I know I would like the Run: Sport Henley in the silver stripe pattern. Hopefully, the website will get it back in stock.
I Am Great Tote: Repriced at My Local Store
I did see something interesting, however. The store I went to had all their I Am Great Totes repriced at $55. They didn't have markdown stickers on them, they had new price stickers. $55 seems a much fairer price for these bags since they are so small. I spoke to the checkout girl about them and she seemed to think they were re-priced because of the size. I see the website still has these bags at $88. It could be a local thing. I'll have to make a note to check the other Lululemon store I visit regularly.
There is also a new floral print coming - lithographed iris. I saw the Groove pants in black and white with black lithographed iris. The girl told me tanks are following soon - A Scoop Neck and something else but I can't remember what. From the tiny bit I could see on one half of the waistband of a Groove pant, the flower looked a little like this print:
