Spring Has Sprung Bangbuster

Got my bangbuster today. Happy to report it has a lot of color in it - yay! I was worried it would have a lot of black in the front.

Do you think that lulu knows who you are and purposely sends you a good print distribution? I am in PR for a huge company and that is what we would do. Just thinking?......

Dani said...

Hey LLA - just to let you know, I was told in my store tonight that next weeks shipment will contain (Flare) Ebb & Flows. I know a lot of commenters have been awaiting their return!

@ anon 8:01 pm- That would be nice to think that my orders had special treatment but I just think I lucked out.

@anon 8:01 - I'd love to think lll was that smart..
It would seem to be a good move on their part if they did send her well stitched/printed products! However, judging by a lot of their decisions lately (alienating core customers, discontinuing key pieces, etc) I wouldn't give lll any credit in being so smart!

I'm absolutely positive a machine like LLL would be sorting your shipments specifically to be good quality. They are dumb but not THAT dumb...

p.s. I do think Lulu knows who their good customers are:)

Beautiful! The only one left in my local store was almost solid black with a few streaks.

@Anon. 8:01pm - I was asking myself the same thing.... wonderng if they know who you are and sent you a good one. :) I had to search for a while at the store to get a nice one with lots of flowers.

That is a nice print distribution and the print actually looks nice in a small amount.


8:22 thanks for the tip on Ebb & Flow ii's finally arriving. But flare? Ick! Black swan please!! Funny when I've asked my local stores, they have no clue what I'm talking about. The point we often make (on this blog) about educators knowing less than we do, is true. I don't expect them to be on-line knowing this stuff, I expect LLL to tell them what is coming. Obviously they do not!

Can you do a post comparing different headbands from lulu? Thx!

Anonymous said...

I dunno about that. I use to buy truckloads of Lulu and one time, they sent me TWO defective shirts, with threads all unravelling !!! When I called to see what could be done, they acted all shocked I received two of the same shirt, (different colours) with bad seams. Not to also mention, it took them 3 days to come up with a solution and I had to do LOTS of begging to get good Cusotmer service. (And 8 emails!!) Oh the hoops Lulu makes you jump through! BAD!!

I love Ebb n Flows! But NO Flare pleeeease can't they just do a normal one like charcoal or black swan??? Is anyone listening!

I used to be an educator...they do know (the lookbook--illustrations of upcoming product--is updated every week and it shows products about 3-4 weeks in advance before they arrive at the store). They're just not allowed to discuss it with you; not even supposed to tell you when shipments come in (Mondays). This strategy is meant to get you in the store more frequently. The more you visit the store, the more likely you are to buy something.

I recently had fantastic Customer service. I called about the waistband on my DSC. I bought them six months ago and they rolled over at the waistband and have itchy wires sticking out. The rep looked up my order and said "ok,I am sending you an email and a prepaid label. So sorry for this!" no questions or hassles. A gift card is on the way! Very impressed and hope the new batch will not have this problem as I love, love, love these crops!

@ 10:51 thanks for the info. Re: "This strategy is meant to get you in the store more frequently. The more you visit the store, the more likely you are to buy something." I get the "strategy" but it's dumb. People are busy. Their #1 priority is not to be running to LLL every 2 seconds. Maybe it works on some customers, but it does not work on me. I'm not going to buy anything except what I want and I will wait OR I just wont' be bothered. I won't buy something else "just because". In fact, they're more likely to lose my business because I'll explore other retailers, or again, I just won't be bothered because they take too long.


It's pretty funny, all the stuff that they think is a "win" or "works".

I like this idea. LLA - you have a ton of experience with headbands. I would like to see what your faves are for different activities (yoga run lounge?) and which you wouldn't buy again.

Tia!

Have the bangbusters changed? I just received mine and it is quite narrower than my older ones (which I love). The description on the website says 5" but the one I received is maybe 3"...

has anyone been to the sale on sat how is the selection are prices lower? line long? thanks

Sandra said...

My store told me when shipments come in but most of the time they don't put the stuff out on the floor until Tuesday or Wednesday. But I have noticed that the new or holiday help is clueless. I asked if they knew if the mint moment was rulu or luon light and the "educator" said, "oh I didn't even know they made Rulu vinyasa scarfs, I've only seen them in luon light!" Um... Ok...

Savasana said...

Wow. My store had a very dull selection of this bangbuster. It felt like I had to mug an educator to get a nice one. On the up side, all of the Speed shorts have plenty of pattern and color.

LuluAddict said...

The Bangbusters are probably my current favorite but I also like the Swiftlys a lot. The only ones I've ever hated were the slipless because they squeezed my head. I would like if lulu brought the Dance headbands - the two skinny straps - back. I like those for casual wear a lot. They fall off me for exercise but are great when you want something to hold your hair out of your face.

I find that most of the employees in my local store don't know a lot about what they've had in the past or info on new styles. Hmmmm. Maybe they call them educators cause they need to get schooled!

Hey all! I got a pretty good one too:) nice colors and distribution. I just saw on wmtm their is two shirts in white and flash called the sun runner. I researched your blog and in June lla you had said you liked it. It's the one with the pits cut out. Anyone still loving theirs? Is it tts? I'm an 8 but can go down to a 6 if its too loose. Just wondering? Tia
Yes

Dani said...

Just to clarify, I don't think they are *only* getting Flare - I had asked specifically about the Flare WUC's and she said they weren't getting them but they are getting that colour in the Ebbs. I'm crossing my fingers for a nice neutral too.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 1:13 pm - Yes, they are making them narrower these days. It started a couple of months ago. I like the narrower ones a little better but either works for me.

I love the new "Spring Has Sprung" Bang Buster. I bought one in store today. Each print has a different amount of color in it so be careful when picking one out.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 4:18 pm - I like the Sun Runner ok. I wish I didn't get white since it gets see through when wet. I've mostly been using it for a swim cover up in the summer. I like it for fall running on days that aren't super hot because then I don't sweat so much and it isn't see through. I think I bought my regular size in it since I am busty.

Great! Thanks!

The Slip less headband squeezes my head too but really does stay put. Just uncomfortable.

The Skinny Satin headband falls off during exercise for me but it's cute for casual wear.

I will have to check out the Swiftly headband. How do you feel about the Fly Away Tamer?

Lucky Luon headband works best for me. Stays on and stays put during Bikram yoga. I have 2 slipless headbands from SeaWheeze and they do not stay put. BangBuster does not work for me.

I recently bought headbands from Victoria's Secret - wide, Piped Headband - and they're great. Plus, can't beat the price: 3/$33

I got my SHS bangbuster and it was black in the middle with only a tiny bit of floral around the ears I was so sad :( so I took it into a store today and tOld the cashier I hadn't worn it, got it Friday and just wanted to exchange for a better pattern-the girl was super nice and told me they don't normally exchange but she would for me this time!! No hassle at all! Awesome!! So I got one with a lot of orange in it to match my new light flare pullover I got!! So happy!!!

I just bought my SHS bangbuster at the Regina LLL store on opening day. There were really only a couple of good ones, and I was there right when the store opened. Mine has a lot of colour in it, but the majority of them were black with just a tiny bit of floral on the sides/edges.
