Newest Lululemon Purchases - Bargains!

A couple of weeks ago I picked up an Athletic Deep V in Mac 'N Cheese yellow for less than half price. I visited a couple of Lululemon stores today in search of mark downs and new headband colors.

Although I didn't love the Groove Down crops at full price, at the markdown price of $59 (regular price $86) they're much more attractive. I got a pair in the persimmon/ kiss stripes pictured above. I must have six tops that will match. The only bad thing is that there is no ipod pocket in them.

I also got another Athletic Deep V tank in Persimmon/Kiss for nearly half off. I am waiting for the Gulf Undulation print Deep V to be marked down.

I wanted to try on the new Action Reaction bra but I couldn't even get it over my head. It goes to a size 10 only and runs really tight. The material is the same as in the Heartbeat tank.

I am dying to try on the Stratus Crop but my stores haven't gotten them yet. I didn't try on anything else since a lot of the newest stuff only goes to a 10 or I haven't been moved by the styles / prints / colors. There is one cute new print in Silver Dream Stripe / Fatbird but it only comes in the Twisted Tank and I already have one. I like white prints but they tend to yellow under the arms. Lululemon has been making a lot of organic stuff but the organic cotton is pretty heavy weight. That's good for durability but it makes it too hot for summer days here in SoCal. Perhaps the Lululemon designers should come live in SoCal for awhile. A lot of their stuff is designed for the cooler Canadian climate.

I am starting to get to the point where I really have too much athletic wear. How do others manage their Lululemn obsession? I assume people sell the old stuff on eBay.

It'll be interesting to see what the summer collection looks like. The girls in the store said they were expecting a bunch of neon stuff.
