Lululemon Warehouse Sale - Will There Be An On-Line Version? (Hint, Hint)

Lululemon is going to have one of it's legendary Warehouse Sales in Hamilton, Ontario tomorrow. If you don't live nearby, too bad. I would hope they'd throw a few more items into Loot on line for the rest of us but looking at the sneak peek photos I don't feel that bad that I am missing out. It looks like a lot of the stuff that we've already seen hit Loot. Has anyone been to one and what are the prices like? Would you say it's worth waiting three hours in line?

Got My Zobha Sale Lounge Pants - Love!

My Zobha Lounge Pants came today. They are on clearance at Zobha for $30.99 from $78. They are non-returnable but I thought I'd take a chance since I can always use dressy sweatpants. I really like them. They are 97% Organic Cotton and 3% spandex. I think the cut is similar to Groove pants, snug through the bum and upper thigh and flared from the knee down. I find them to be stretchier than then french terry pants I have from Lululemon (flashback crop, dance sweat pant, feel good pant). I think the material is most similar to those in my Vita crops - thinner and stretchier than the material in my Dance Sweatpants. It's probably most similar to the material found in Organic Wunder Unders as far as stretchiness goes but a bit thicker. Since they are brand new I can't talk about whether they bag out, hang onto stains, or pill but as far as fabric feel and fit goes, I really like them and will get another pair when new colors come out. I'm not sure if I would pay full price. I'll have to decide once I wear them a bit and see how they hold up. As far as sizing goes, I got an XL which should have been fine according to the size chart and even a little on the big side but these are actually snug so I'd say they run true to size or a bit small. I must have a short rise or something because the pants come up to just below my belly button (I'm 5' 5"). I got the color shown in the photo, called Night Shade, and the photo is a true to life. The color is an eggplant purple. The pants have offset seams down the back of the leg and the front and no side seam. I think the seams give the pants nice visual interest.

Sarah Johnson for Lululemon? Weird Fake on Ebay

I was perusing the Lululemon listings on eBay this morning and ran across this one. The text called these pants Sarah Johnson for Lululemon Groove pants. It has to be a fake. I've never seen Grooves with a logo in that spot or by a named designer.

Thinking About Upload Thursday

I am suffering from Lululemon withdrawl. I don't think I've bought something in over two weeks. My wishes for tomorrow's upload are:

1) The Boobs on a Wire Bra, or

2) The Flow and Go Tank, or

3) It's been hot as heck here this week and I really enjoyed wearing my Circle Mesh CRB while working on my kids' playground yesterday. Would love some new colors in this tank. It's just a fantastic staple of a workout wardrobe. Or,

4) The Mesh Headwraps in the newest colors - haven't seen these pop up in my local stores or on line. Still waiting....

5) Surprise item that I can't live without

What are you hoping to see?
