All this stuff is super ugly ! I miss the old lulu ! The ruffles and nice feminine details. I'm not into the colors out right now either. Last purchase was the pinkelicious cycling short sleeve jacket which is great. I went into the store a few days ago... and felt lost... nothing of interest ! Left empty handed which is fine. Like many of you... I used to go into a store every week and spend several hundreds of $ per week. More $ for other things.

Purple is my favorite color and even I'm tired of it!

Ok so where did the seize the day jacket go?!?

Does the sun chaser hat fit that strangely or is she just wearing it at a weird angle?

Yuk!! Looks like stuff you buy at kohls, really not digging the latest prints and colors but am hopeful given the seawheeze shorts and latest a striped NLT- we shall see!!

Does anyone know how close the new Zippy Green is to Split Pea from 2012 I think? I can only buy online and when I see Zyippy Green it just looks like the color of my Scoop Me Up in Split Pea.

Wish we were getting the Layer Me LS in aquamarine - that is the only thing that interests me!

Tried to Power Flow Crops in PP in my size (same as ebb and flow size) and it was not sheer. Unlike the pink, orange and blue and green from a few weeks ago---completely sheer.

And the new Live Lively tank is missing half of its fabric on the chest. Insanely low cut. I'm only a 34B and was constantly pulling it up in the dressing room. Love the straps on the back though. Didnt like the seams going down on the bust at all. Wish the front was more like the Power Y.

OT. Bought a couple of Lorna Jane pieces. Capris, tank, bra. Capri is thick, stays in place and breathable and not see through. The main problem is NO GUSSET. I don't like the feel of no gusset... Like a front wedgie. The tanks are cute. Cute detailing with ruche and ruffles (like old lulu). The bra is amazing. Thick, compressive and soft. No digging in, no back fat, but then again I'm only 34B. The price is more expensive than LULU... I don't like the no return policy, only store credit. In fact, when I purchased these items in the store, I had to try it on, think about to make sure I really love it, then come back and buy it. I guess it's good for those impulse buys. Overall, really love the Lorna Jane products so far.

Another thing , I had tor return the RunBeam Hoodie in PP and Aquamarine. Love the fit, sleeve length is perfect, light material, and colors. But as LLA said the zipper gets stuck at the seam. Also, the kangaroo pockets did not lie flat. It kept bulging out with minimal movement. I had to keep pulling it down. Yes, I got in my regular size 4 like all of my long sleeves.

The only thing in these colors/prints that would interest me would be the twiggy print in a tank. Everything just seems to repeat--the colors and the styles. The swank tank looks fine, just boring. Where are the cute details that make you feel you must have it? Everything looks pretty low end. I like NLTs, but how many of those does one need. I miss the turbo run shorts, which were perfect length and not baggy at all. I miss cute run skirts, too. I workout at the gym and every class about five people are wearing pace setters. You can find several more on the people using machines. I have been spending record lows at lll lately. On the plus side, I have gotten some really cute regular clothes for summer.

OH THAT POOR YOUNG MAN IN THOSE HORRIBLE PANTS...!

So pissed that Contempo jacket got repriced. Any idea if we can get a price adjustment if we bought it last week?

I went into my local store yesterday.....UGLY! Nothing even remotely interested me. Well, actually I was interested in the In The Flow crops.....OMG totally sheer, like a pair of nylons. You could see the tag through them even standing up. The pants fit me fine, so sizing up isn't the issue. It was a shame, because they were so flattering and comfortable.

The tennis/golf line was so ugly and not selling in my store at all. My daughter played high school tennis and thought the gear was ugly. She wears mostly NIke tennis gear. Two educators were wearing the gear and it was not flattering on them at all! And they were normal sized girls, but the dress showed every lump and bump on her.

At my store the racks of WMTM have been just sitting there for weeks. I was there last month and lots of the same stuff still hanging around.

So people that bought the contempo at $138 are just screwed? That's just ignorant and a slap in the face. Everyone should get their $20 back. Way to go LLL.

LLA,
I'm looking to exchange/ sell some lululemon gear. Is there a facebook group you could recommend?

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 9:28 am - email me at lululemonaddict@gmail.com and I'll give you my recommendations.

@ anon 9:05 am - contact the GEC or your store. I think people have been getting refunds.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 6:49 - I thought the OM pants were something like $98 last time they came out.

@ 4:28am split pea is WAY different from zippy green. if you've got split pea, i'd say zippy is like a neon version of the same colour, but with a bit more green. zippy green is the same intensity of ray from last year in saturation.

In the Flow crop being sheer, too see-through. Of course, the quality is substandard!

Contempo Jacket being re-priced: do not take it! Go in for a price adjustment even if it's past 2 weeks. (Unfortunately it doesn't surprise me that LLL would do this. They don't care and they clearly keep laughing at their customers.) BTW where is the NEW price adjustment policy that was supposed to occur? As mentioned in a LLL corporate update meeting a while back?

Twiggy Om pants on the guy: I certainly do hope that's just for a laugh. I still think the print is so bad in that amount; even on a woman it's embarrassing a.k.a. very granny.

contempo jackets dropped the price to $118 from $138 and I bit the bullet and got a white one.

banclothing said...

I find lulu is really plain right now. The collection is really lacking the detail it normally has. The colours are nothing special, jackets are 'basic' at best and the bags are all the same! I am really disappointed. I have been looking for a good lulu bag for the last year... I finally got tired of waiting and got a used bag. Come on lulu, I want to spend my money in your store!!!!

Anonymous said...

I did a live chat and was told no to a credit on the Contempo Jacket - makes me look a little silly. Might be the last purchase I make.

Em said...

Tried on a Swank Tank today at my local lulu. Really liked it! Nice coverage for those looking for a bit of modesty, but cute shape. Fit TTS, felt pretty well supported, could probably get away with just the shelf bra for some activities. Also tried on the Om me Home jacket, cute but not worth the 128$ price tag. I'll take one when it hits markdown..maybe.
I want to see some new colours in the Ebb and Flow racerback. Love mine!

I examined the twiggy print in grey today in store. This is the worst feeling, polyester material ever. At least if it was in thick, not see-through luon, I could see why people might be into it. As it is though, gross.

I didn't buy anything. I couldn't find the lux boogie shorts and nothing else interests me.

I ran another half marathon today. This company made the "medals"/necklaces. http://foxyoriginals.com/

I highly recommend this race!

I bought the seize the day jacket and recieved it last week, I'd like a different size so I went to the website to order and its gone!! lve chatted online with lulu and they told me its been removed from the site and will come back in the future... (?????) weird... anyway i love the jacket and wish I could still buy it :(

I had a surprisingly pleasant experience when I called the gec today to request a credit for the contempo jacket. Immediate credit! No questions asked, granted its within 2 week return period but still was very happy considering in the past I'd have to buy it again at new price and then return the other one, big pain etc...

Anonymous said...

returned the purple WUC this weekend, way too sheer! going to order more StudioLux crops and pants.

I contacted GEC prior to purchasing the Contempo Jacket @ 138$. I was told that if I purchased the item in store, I had two weeks to "return" the jacket with tags on & purchase the same jacket at the reduced price. Or, if purchased online, to contact GEC & they would refund the difference if the price drop took place shortly after purchase.
I contacted GEC yesterday & they refunded me the 20$ without any issues whatsoever. They were actually very helpful.
I would definitely contact GEC before going to my local store if you removed the tags/it's been a bit past 14 days. I would be really pushy for the refund. Honestly, what you are asking for is reasonable, the jacket came out not even 3 weeks ago.
I had another issue while dealing with GEC, & it did not take much pushing for me to have a favorable resolution to my 2nd issue.

I purchased the Contempo jacket last Wednesday, I did a live chat yesterday and she told me they would process the credit and it would take a few business days to show up on my card. Her answer was: "Because you are within the 14 day return period", so I'm assuming if you bought it more than 2 weeks ago you're screwed. Not good customer service at all, why even price the jacket that high in the first place knowing you might be lowering the price anyway? How does that make you look as a company? They are that desperate to squeeze a few extra $$$ out of our pockets for those extra weeks?

--- From GEC ---

Dear XXXXX,

Thank you for reaching out to us regarding purchase of the Contempo Jacket. Based on the styling and function of this garment, we've decided to reposition pricing to better reflect its value. Generally we do not provide price adjustments, but if you purchased this garment online I am able to make a one time exception and credit you back $20 + taxes. Please reply with your online order ID for the Contempo Jacket, and confirm your shipping address, and we can go ahead and put that credit back on your original payment method. If you purchased this garment in a store you would have to speak to the store directly for a resolution.

Warm regards,

Sarah

Yea...I was gonna BUY the purple twiggy print, that is until I called and asked the GEC to tell me the truth! The girl confessed to me, it was scratchy and DID NOT feel nice to the touch. I was pleased she was so honest with me!! :) Pass for me......... In fact, she told me all the twiggy prints were poly-estery.... :(

Anonymous said...

Yeah i concur w/ the lack of feminin detail lulu used to have pre ms. day!!!! its all about cutting corners making items cheap w/ big price tags to boot!!! and we arn't buying it are we? I'd say not! this always happens when companys go into expansion mode! Like others have said i don't spend alot w/ lulu anymore the spell has been broken- and i'm glad really- i've got plenty of workout wear to last for years and years! beeb checking out other brands and indulging in summer street wear instread :)

The Voyage pullover is really nice in person, the back is made of luxtreme, the front of french terry. If you like the Rej. hoodie you will like this.

Will there be an upload tonight?

LuluAddict said...

There was last year.

It's so frustrating when the GEC tells you they are doing you a one time favor when it's just common customer service. They need to change their policy (I thought they said they would after last time??)

The jacket didn't go on MD. It was a reprice!

Back at anon 5:58!

I don't even need anything but a surprise would be nice!

I got a refund on the difference of the Comtempo jacket price reduction in my local store. Granted, I had the receipt and tags on (and had not yet performed surgery on the zipper pull blob). It was only 1 day past the 14d. return time.

Anonymous said...

I find the latest offerings very.... uninspiring. The styles are bland and the colors repetitive.

So the Om Me Home Jacket just got repriced from $128 to $108. Same $20 drop the Contempo Jacket saw.
