I remember asking for the Nimbus Stripe Pacesetter in a horizontal stripe a couple of weeks ago. But who buys the regular size? Wonder if they're planning a stealth upload of Talls to curb the eBay snipers...I must have missed the Spry and Love Red Scoop upload, so I added those to my collection tonight.
Mens Sizzle Pace BreakersIm still confused why colours are on both sides at once, this never happened before 2013. Is it to save money for production costs? hmmm
I want the red stripe heart opener tank... but don't wanna spend $48 on something that looks like a Forever21/Old Navy buy. So far nothing for me this week.
Nothing new attracted me. I do love my Play All Day shorts I got in sizzle last week and am interested in the spry ones. Don't feel the urgency to snag one online right away. Will wait til I get to a store sometime this week to see/feel/try/think about in person.
Looks like Ronald McDonald and Christmas had a baby at the beach and threw up all over Lululemon. That is how i would describe the color palette :)
Think there may be a spry ta ta topper coming (see the top in the twin stripe track attack shorts photo).
The Wandering Yogi Halter looks beautiful! But it's a try-on for sure. Anyone have it from from last year?
Breathe and Release in Cool Breeze and the Wandering Yogi halter in black! I had given up hope of getting the Breathe and Release; it seemed to be sold out everywhere! I would have preferred black, but I'll take the Cool Breeze :) Here's hoping they bring back more Wandering Yogi items!
I know I'm in the minority hear but I got the Track Attack Skirt in Love Red. I hope it's cute. It looks good on girls with long legs so we will see.
Canada got...a "runsie"? Rompers can be cute on a 16 year old I guess...
That jacket makes me think of those riddles that kids play: What has Black & White stripes with red all over? Lulu newest overprice jacket!
Can anyone help me with flow y bra sizing? The power y is my favorite tank. I take a 6 or a 4 -- 6 is big throughout the midsection but bra feels more comfortable, 4 is more form fitting throughout. I don't live near a store. I thought I had tried on the flow y bra once but for some reason I remember it being really small? Am I remembering right or does it fit the same as the built in bra in the power y tank?
I was so upset with Love Red, my computer shows it as a red, but in person it is a lot closer to being an Orange! Return everything that I got. Will not be ordering until this color wave passes. I wish Lululemon would do a True Red like they have in the past.
LLA, what color are the speed shorts featured in the Run: Featherweight Singlet photos? Are they new?
Nope....not a thing for me again. How depressing :(
Wow.....absolutely nothing catches my eye (especially not those fugly yellow and red striped skirts!) So disappointed.....
One of my favorite colors is red, so I had a hard time deciding tonight. In the end, got the Love Red Will crops. Seems they stealth uploaded some Black Will Pants last week, but I already have solid black. Hope more colors come in the full length Wills. Will wait to be in store before seeing if I want everything else in Love Red. Track Attack skirt might work for me since I can use some boost in the caboose with the ruffles, but it seems awfully short like the Regular Pace Setters which few people seem to buy in the Regular length anymore. Lulu should get the message when all the Talls sellout 3X as fast that they should start making longer skirts!Also want a Red jacket but cannot seem to justify buying that lousily-designed Forme. Wish it were a Define, then there would be no questions at all! Also, going to wait to see Love Red Festival Bag in person to check if the color is more Love Orange.
I was thrilled to see the Love Red Mod Moves crops, but apparently I'm not the only one who sizes up in these because the 12 was gone by 3:30 am (central) when I checked while nursing. Super disappointed! I went ahead & got the 10 with the hope that my mom can pick up a 12 for me while she's in CO this week. If Lulu is going to tell their customers they need to size up to get their 'true fit' (and have pants that the seams rip out of unless you size up) maybe they should stock accordingly. Just sayin'
I ordered the wandering yogi halter, small towel and socks, all in spry blue. I was hoping for the quilt summer 13/spry blue groovy run shorts. I also want the daily bra but I would rather have solid spry blue than striped. I am also not sure about luon versus luxtreme. My luon flow Y bras and some CRBs sueded and pilled after very few wears. Does some luon stay new looking better than others? Can you tell from the nylon versus polyester content? I look after my clothes, workout and otherwise, so I expect them to stay looking new, otherwise I won't buy the fabric again.
It's all hideous. I mean really, really ugly! Glad to save someoney this week :)
Grabbed the cool breeze breath and release tank before the vanish like the black ones did.
I haven't bought lulu in a whole MONTH (incredible for me) but YES FINALLY OMG!!!The wandering yoga tank was my all-time favorite thing last year. I am THRILLED. I am buying the red.. I want to see more pictures of the spry blue before I buy that one. WOOT!
Cool Breeze Breathe and Release. I've been waiting and hoping for that one! yay
Wandering yogi halter is a surprise to me. A couple of girls in my pure barre classes wear the older version, and they look great (they would also look great wearing a paper bag, but i digress) but I think I'm too busty and athletically built to pull it off.I would have bought the pacesetter in the twin stripe/mod dot in a heartbeat, but I need the tall. Fingers crossed that a tall version shows up -- if anyone sees them in stores, could you report here?
@dixie I completely sympathize. I really want that tank but good grief that's a lot of $. I did order the spry and love red play all day shorts. I've been waiting on those colors in that short. Yay finally! Wondering if anyone has had prior experience with daily bra? I'm 32 small B and think it might work but would like any help you guys can give me. Thanks
I'll be happy when this color palette is over with. I really want darker or at least more subdued colors. Every athletic apparel company offers bright colors. I'd love Alberta Lake to make a comeback. The one item I had in that had a seam rip open.
I really like the spry twin striped free to be tank. I love those tanks, and this one is catching my eye. I'll try it on in a store though before I buy. The skirts are cute but I'm not sure about the colors. I like more neutral bottoms, and all these stripes and colors will make it hard to coordiante. I guess black would work, but kinda boring. Maybe a black twin stripe? And I didn't read anything about pockets on the product description for the skirts? I would hope they'd make a skirt made for running with pockets!
Nothing for me, which I'm totally fine with. I got some cute stuff in the past several weeks and now I'm going to stop buying for a bit. These colours don't interest me that much anyway (although I did order the All Sport Bra in love red the other day.....it gets here tomorrow, yay!).
YAY they brought back the Wandering Yogi Halter!!!! Maybe I should switch out my heathered orange one for a spry blue.. Heh
OT: I am officially obsessed with my Yoga Smoga run, jump and play crops, which have officially forever replaced wuc for me. Anyone know what their shipping time is now? Will I have to wait another 8-12 weeks if I order more?
@ anon 7:05 am - I am so glad you are happy with your Yogasmoga crops! Email Annie and ask her but she told me as soon as they get through producing the back orders, which was an entire production run in itself, they'd start on putting out new colors and styles. They do have a factory shut down for a couple of weeks in July for mandatory vacation. There is a very nice purple color coming, very much like lululemon's Tender Violet. They also might be some returns you could have. I am not sure what YS does with the crops people didn't like.
I bought two of the new skirts. I have been waiting for something besides the pace setter, so hopefully this one isn't too short. I am 5'5" and find the regular length pace setter works great. I didn't realize anyone really bought the tall length. I just figured they didn't stock as many of those. I think the color palette is nice, but I wouldn't wear them all together. I usually wear color mixed with neutrals instead of other brights, but to each his own. I feel like so many of the comments on here are always negative. I definitely wouldn't buy everything lulu sells, but I don't like all the merchandise in ANY store. You can't expect to always love the colors or styles out! I am just glad that lululemon seems to make a variety of items for all ages and sizes. If several weeks go by without a lulu purchase, I am happy and spend $ elsewhere.
Nothing for me this week, really not a fan of all the stripes, polka dots and primary colors. I do like spry blue but am not a fan of yellow or red so I'm over this palette...bring on some jewel tones (in solids!) I do kinda like the twin stripe/black/love red track attack jacket but not willing to dish out the money for it.
OT Question! :) Headed to Newfoundland on vacation--St. John's Actually... Anyone from St. John's on here, who can tell me what area I can go to shop where there is designer & high-end clothing botiques/shoes/purses? :) Any help or suggestions would be GREAT!! Thanks! :)
I'm 5'8 with long legs and the regular length works fine for me as well. I sell my old regular length skirts just fine. Well said about all the negative comments.
@ Anonymous 10:26I have the Wandering Yogi tank from last year in buttery-soft pop orange. It fits TTS but the straps across the back are a little snug, but necessary to make the top supportive. I have big lats, so I notice. However, it will highlight any "back fat" if you have any. For reference I'm a 34C size 6-8 in Lulu tops and I got the 6.Hope this helps! the new colors are beautiful! I just can't justify another one.
The wandering yogi halter is a great summer top. I mainly wear it as a post beach or sailing top. I can't do yoga in because I am busty 34DD. I bought a size 6 from last years run in the white and gray, I absolutely love the way it looks on me. If you are slim this top is perfect. I think I will get the spry blue and also the black.M
I'm 5'7" and love the regular Pacesetters. The skirts are my favorite because they can do double duty for running and for tennis.Btw, I noticed people are still having bleeding issues with the pinks. I don't think this is a Lulu problem, I think it's a common pink dye problem. Last year I purchased a pair of hot pink shorts from J Crew which bled like crazy for the first half dozen washes or so. Then recently I purchased a hot pink top from Lilly Pulitzer which is a nightmare. This top bleeds on whatever other clothing I happen to be wearing, no sweating involved.
Has anyone noticed the bright pink PYB crops in stores???
I didn't order anything last night which is a first for me in a while. I am interested in the Wandering Yogi Halter in Spry Blue but would like to try it on before buying. Too many things that I have been buying online have just had to go back lately so I would rather try before I buy.
LLA: Yogasmoga addict here. Thanks for the intel! I will check with Annie...and eagerly await the purple!
I stand corrected on the regular length PSs. I honestly thought that since my store and online did not sell out, the regular length did not sell as we'll as the Tall. Especially since the reviews show shorter gals buying Talls. I've noticed my 4- way stretch PSs (black, red,white) are much longer than my 2-way stretch PSs.I'm 5'9 and wish the regulars looked decent on my 30+ body...I'd get more sleep on Monday nights!
Anon@10:51I also wear 6 in the power Y tank and it fits just like on you: good in the chest a little baggy in the waist. I take a 6 in the Flow Y and yes it is a little tighter than other bras. It's not so tight that I need an 8 but it is a bit snug. Definitely don't go for the 4.
Went to the store today and tried on the Track Attack skirt. It seemed to run bigger than my other skirts. I thought that it would make my butt look big with that ruffled/tiered detail in the back, but surprisingly, it didn't. The Love red was super cute, and I might have parted with my cold, hard cash, but it didn't have a single pocket! The fact that Lulu would try and sell a running skirt sans pockets shows just how completely out of touch they are! Yeesh! I made sure I told the store employees that no pockets are a deal breaker, and they expressed surprise that Lulu would make a skirt without one pocket!
Did the red Track Attack sell out already or did it get pulled? I ordered one and will be super bummed if the order is cancelled. The other colors look like they wrinkle easily...
The Wandering Yogi Halter looks really cute, but for my DD's, I can't imagine it being functional for any sort of athletic activity. For the person who asked about sizing on a Flow Y, I would suggest buying one size up (provided it is the "new" version). The old version, that was sold early to mid last year was TTS. The newer versions are much tighter in the band, and the band is stiffer, so it doesn't give as much. Actually, you'll know if you are wearing too small of a size because you'll hear seams popping.Nothing for me this week. Easy passes.
@10:51PM - I size up in the Flow Y bra compared with the current Power Y
Btw, the Track Attack shorts are nothing short of AMAZING. I wear them for various cardio classes and they are my fav LLL shorts EVER, and I probably have 15 pairs of LLL shorts. I love the super soft waistband. I have them in black and Love Red. The black is a different material and is buttery soft. My Love Red ones are much stiffer. I am not familier enough with the fabrics, but maybe that is 4 way Swift vs 2 way Swift? I don't really have a preference, but I have noticed that when I do squats and lunges in the stiffer fabric, the material sort of bunches up stays that way until I pull it back down. It is a minor issue, and honestly no one's shorts look overly cute when doing squats or lunges, so I can't complain. I love the wider leg opening too. I would get them in every color but I have totally blown my wad this month. And, stripes do not interest me. I would much prefer solid colors. The Love Red ones are, of course, 100% orange and not even remotely red.
Socks. I ordered socks. ;)
Sizzle speed shorts arrived at my local LLL store based on their email from this morning. Anyone know if they are see-through? My local store is not that local, 40 minute drive each way, an hour with traffic. Would hate to get out there only to find they are see-through.
I picked one up in store today and I LOVE it! Hope you gets yours and they are not recalled because I see nothing wrong with mine at all. I got the black one as well.
Some are complaining that the colors this Summer are like Rinald McDonald drown in a fish tank or whatever, but I'm thinking more like classic beach ball colors! I like them for summer. Maybe that's the color story here. I wish people would lighten up a little. :)
Super disappointed. Just received the YogaSmoga crops that I have waited soooo long for and they are sheer. Ugh. Definitely going back. Oh well - nice try.
Holy cow! Just looked at the Lulu website, and the Track Attack skirts price was raised to $68! So now it matches the in-store price! Someone must have mispriced it to begin with. Wow!
Canada has the featherweight singlet (just in black) and it's priced at $68...anyone know why the price is so high on that one? The only other tank priced that high is the amped tank and that at least has a built in bra.
Flow Y is a good one to size up with. I wear a 4 in energy but find 6 in Flow Y more comfortable (though 4 is possible).Wandering Yogi Halter is totally worth it. Got it on WMTM last year in black. I sized up on this one too to have a skimming effect and more room in the back straps, though a 6 fit too.Finally, as a Turbo Run lover and Groovy Run wearer (size 6 in 4 way stretch), I like the Track Attack Shorts in love red. I went up a size to an 8 because it is most definitely 2 way stiffness. But TA are super comfy and
Also, in my store all colors of the spandex fast track short were $39. The educator said they were not fitting as desired (too small). Will have to read comments to see why. I liked them. Luxtreme and flattering. I bought a pair of size 6 Luon spandex instead, and would recommend sizing up in the fast track.
yep the wondering yogi tank is not for curvy or super busty people. I don't workout in it I wear it as a nice weekend vacation top. I find it to be very flattering.I have 34DDs and there is no way that I would do yoga or any other type of workout in this top other than walking or riding a bicycle. If you are slim and small up top it will problably workM
I stopped keeping tabs on every single new item for a few months now (one too many quality issues for me) so I have a bit to catch up on. The jacket pattern reminds me of the better days though!
