New Stuff In the Stores - Astro Pant, Go Lightly Pant, Flashback Short

Astro Pant

The Astro Pants are now arriving in stores. They look like a longer version of the Astro Crops from last May. I tried on the crops last year and like the lower waistband. The pants look like they don't bell out as much as the Grooves. Oh yeah, according to Facebook the Astro pants only come in a 35" length. Bummer for those who have to order the pant on line.

There is another new interesting looking pant showing up in the product alerts, the Go Lightly Pant.
Go Lightly Pant
I like the look of these. I really like my narrow leg Energize Pants and these look similar except they are cropped. I hope they are made of regular weight luon.
Go Lightly Pant Product Info:
  • All purpose, slim fitting, cropped pant
  • Made with 4-way stretch luon, hugs your body in all the right places with comfort
  • Low rise front with high rise back
  • Cropped length so you don't step on your pants during warrior
  • Gusset designed for greater range of movement with comfort
  • Flat seamed for chafe resistance & comfort
 Flashback Short - Yawn, another pair of short shorts

Gosh, I wouldn't mind if Lululemon made a pair of shorts that hit a few inches above the knee. All their shorts are either really short or below the knee. Something to consider, I saw a woman at my local store get her Still Shorts hemmed to a few inches above her, right below the logo. They looked really nice.
Still Shorts - Hemming to just under the logo is a good idea

Bold Blue Swiftly Tech

I just got a Bold Blue Run Swiftly Tech. Is this going to run on me? I can't remember if people have been having trouble with this color or not. I know Pow Pink is an issue.
