The Latest - Plum Cool Racerback, Scoop Neck Tanks, and More

Plum Cool Racerback and Journey Crop.

The new Hyperstripe Angel Wing Forme Jacket.



The latest Scoop Neck tanks. I am so tempted by these.


The pink striped Cool Racerback is calling to me, too. However, I haven't liked a fat-striped CRB on me yet. I might check out the Power Ys, though.


Pow/Plum/Raspberry Glo Striped Power Y.

 The Midnight Iris Print Forme.

 Plum Hi/Low Wunder Unders Pants and Right as Rain jacket.

Split Pea Speed Shorts



Journey Crop




Black and Plum Nice Asana Jackets

Trying to figure out how big that new duffel is. It really is gorgeous and I've been trying to talk myself out of getting another bag!

We had the NZ upload this morning, nothing in there I particularly liked (my credit card is very happy to hear this news).

Is anyone else dying over this year's fall line!?!?

Can't decide whether the Journey Crop would look good on me or not... LLA if you get a chance perhaps you'd be able to give us a fit report... or anyone else out there?

@anon 1:55 I just bought them today!!! I was looking for something that would give good coverage (not a fan of anything sheer..) and would be good for yoga, hot yoga, spin, gym type things etc. I tried them on and fell in love. They are not sheer and the back mesh panels means staying cool when I get super sweaty! I also think the mesh from the back looks pretty cool.

I am 5 7' 145 lbs and I was between a 6 and an 8 and went with the 8.

I just bought the Journey Crop and actually had to size down from my usual 2 in Luxtreme and older WU crops. I wish they'd have been all Luxtreme, but I like them so far. Not sure how the Luon compares to recent Luon bc I haven't bought a pair of Luon crops in a while.

Plum wunder unders... is that just a very bad panty line b/c the fabric is that thin/sheer...?

Anonymous said...

I've spent far too much on it. I'm afraid and embarrassed to check my credit card bill.

Anyone else completely baffled that the power y *luon is still available in the full range of sizes in all 3 colors? When I saw those in the upload, I figured they'd be gone before 10am (still bitter about missing the very green one last spring when I was traveling for work for that upload).

The Angel Wing Hyperstripe Forme was the only thing tempting for me to order. I live close to a handful of stores so I'll wait. There doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in it, but I think it's a nice Fall neutral.

I'll definitely exchange the blue LS Swiftly I bought two days ago for the 1/2 zip when it comes into a store.

I received product notification from Robson St Vancouver, that shows a very pretty Scoop Neck in hyper stripe blue moon/inkwell. Hope to see it soon in the US!

So disappointed by lululemon. I ordered the DSJ last upload and the pocket on the left side was all funky so I drove 3 hours to exchange it but they did not have my size in black. I returned it and reordered it on the gift card they gave me for the return.
Well I just got the 2nd DSJ and was elated to see that the pockets laid perfect but the was short lived when I reveres end it. The cuff was sewn all funky with extra shredded material hanging out of the cuff seam. I was soooo disappointed and kind of upset. I took pictures and sent them to GEC and I called them. I figured they could do something to make it right since I had to drive 3 hours to return the first jacket... But nope!
They said the would process a return and do a one time only return to my credit card or bank card of my choice because I did not want a gift card credit. I think that's only fair... But I was still left feeling disappointed. Why couldn't they offer to send me a jacket on the spot or offer to have it mailed in and fixed... Do something to make me happy... I am done dealing with them. I will take my money else where. It's just not worth the hassle to shop at LLL when the defective products do not pass quality assurance but still get sent out :(

Totally agree - I was just flipping through the "what's new" stuff & seems like almost everything is still available in almost all sizes. Especially considering the online traffic causing online ordering problems. Weird

Anonymous said...

The Luon power y's were an easy pass for me ONLY because I'm sick of those colors..Pinkalicious, spry blue, already bought my share of it :)
All these photos of yoga poses is making me excited to go back to class soon! Yayyyy
I got a product notification for Robson St store in Van of more colors for the Nice Asana jacket, and the return of Bleached Coral in the Coastal tank AND Very Green? That got me curious.

I received my order from last weeks upload. I love the Universal Wrap! Super soft and light but cozy at the same time. The Midnight Iris speed shorts are very rich in color and I really like them. I got a size 10 to accommodate the 2 way stretch and they seem to fit well. The Midnight Iris Vinyasa wrap is a disappointment. It is going back. I don't like the feel of the material nor the solid drab grey on the reverse side. I'll stick with the ones I have already.

i want a plum CRB, maybe plum WU if they're not sheer and the hi/lo rise works for me. other than that, i bought a soot DSJ today (wanted the plum, but they didn't have it in my size). not into the stripes - both because of the size and the color palette. only need one or two plum items to satisfy my fall urge - but don't need to go crazy. not into split pea, or light blue, and have a lot of hot pink already..so everything else is just "meh". guess it's for the best - just had to pay a HUGE tuition bill so i'm broke right now anyway.

Tried on the Hi-Low Plum WUs... SO SHEER. Even sizing up twice you could clearly see my underwear through the pants, even while standing. Ridiculous.

Anonymous said...

@2:52 I think it's because they're relatively boring colours (we've seen more than enough raspberry glo!). Had they been released in the current palette I think they would have sold out by now. It's probably leftover luon they are using. Sucks that they are releasing luon light power Y's in the beautiful fall colours. Booo! :(

Anonymous said...

Journey crop looks hot from the back. In fact I like most items from this upload. Just can't resist plums...

lululemoNZ said...

Oh my gosh what tank is that with the plum high/low wunder unders? Could it be a dark blue (inkwell?) 105F singlet???

Anonymous said...

LululemonNZ - I think it might be that new singlet made out of swim fabric...I forget what it's called. I think it might be coming in inkwell?

Anonymous said...

An Ed told me the costal tank is made from leftover swim fabric so that would explain the very green and bleached coral. Bleached coral looks awesome with Bordeaux so guessing it will pair nicely with plum!

Anonymous said...

Ok the Pow stripe CRB, which is Rasp glo, inkwell, plum and white but not POw Pink--it reminds me of the Good N Plenty candy. Those scubas are just horrible and they have loads of them in all sizes and colors, plenty for the teens.
Funny how some Ebay items are advertised as Plum but are really Bordeaux Drama definitely NOT the same. Some buyers will be disappointed.

Anonymous said...

Off topic: Has anyone had any luck fixing pills on WUs? The pills are more like attached lint balls. They are 3 years old so is the good quality luon and maybe they have just run their course? (Please no.)

I've tried using a lint brush, no help, they are stuck on there. Maybe I should try a sweater shaver? I don't have one but can probably borrow one.

Thanks in advance!

yes, it's unfortunate that the REAL Luon Power Y tanks were released in the same colors, Spry blue, Rasp Glo and black overkill. I not big on pink anyway- I have my Paris Pink Define jacket, I hardly wear it's just so loud

Love love my Static Plum REal Luon Power Y from a few years ago -tried pairing it with my Bordeaux Drama Define--no no no

Anonymous said...

Lulumonz I think that's the coastal tank that I saw in product notification emails.

Concerning the Power Y's in Luon, I received my order (they were uploaded on the Canadian site last week). They are made in China (Not Canada, boo) and the material just feels weird. They are going back ! I'm super happy I got the very green and heather black ones a few months back. They get a lot of wear. :) Oh ! I almost forgot... the Raspberry Glo one came with tissue paper... as if it was going to leak of dye !

Why have the 105f singlet not made it into stores yet?!?

Megan Johnson said...

Just ordered the midnight iris scoop neck tank on the EU lulu site. They are finally starting to add more products online. For the past few months it has been slim pickin's. There were so many things I wanted on this upload, but I cant justify it since I broke the bank at the seawheeze showcase store.

Anonymous said...

@9:48pm I've been stalking some stores and most seem to hint that 105f was online only. terribly disappointed I missed out on plum 105.

Anonymous said...

105 F singlet is in store since last week in US store.

Yes, this fall range is killing me, but I love every second of it- not of the summer brights worked for me.

@ anon 8:13 PM If it's luon that I really love, then I remove the pilling with tweezers, one thread at a time. It's made me really careful not to wear synthetic fiber sport wears next to natural cottons.

got my new plum still pants & can't put my finger on it, but the material just doesn't feel substantial. Am going to take them into my local showroom & see what the girls say. Has anyone noticed a difference?

Anonymous said...

Anon 2:27 & 2:29pm..., thanks on the fit reviews on the Journey crop... i will be ordering them today.

Anonymous said...

Isn't that what happened with the Power Ys that came a few months ago? They were uploaded in lion but they felt weird and some people suspected it was lion light but mislabeled? I remember when I returned mine in store, they said they received a lot of returns for it - all saying the same.

RE - Journey Crop. I'm usually a size 8 in crops/shorts/pants. I was right between sizes here - 6&8. I found the all black 6 to be a bit sheer in the bum. The black with black and white striped waist band (in store only, i guess) was not as sheer in the 6. Ultimately, I went with my usual size 8 in the multi colored waist band. They were a bit loose in the waist, but more comfortable through the hips and leg. No sheerness at all in the bum.I found them to be very flattering (I have wide hips and calves). I love the back mesh panels and think they'll breathe well in yoga and pure barre. There's enough full coverage in the back that I don't feel any more exposed than I would wearing a shorter skirt with tights.

If your PP Define is in good condition you should think about selling. Some have gone for $200-$300 on eBay! Just a thought :)

macfrannie said...

RE 105 Singlets: I purchased both the Raspberry and the Blue versions in size 10 and I don't think I'm digging them. I wore the blue on a 5 mile run on Sunday and I don't know if I should have gotten an 8 or what, but I had to keep adjusting the front and it was annoying.

Anyway, I am past the return window for the pink (still has the tags on) and I wore the blue once so I was considering selling them on ebay. I thought I'd give the LLA blog ladies first dibs on the off chance anyone wants them. If you are interested drop me a line.

To the person looking to depill her wunder unders. I just bought a fuzzwizard from amazon. (a sweater shaver) and it did WONDERS for pilling. I had some pique pants that were terrible. They are almost like new now. Highly recommend!

Anonymous said...

What colors in the nice asana may I ask?

Anonymous said...

Macfrannie, I sized down to a 2 in the 105F singlet, and I really could have used a 0, had it been available. Those things run BIG! I hope you find someone to take them off your hands. I bought the Energy bra in my normal 4, cut the tags off and washed it, and I probably could have gone with a 6, it is really tight (I'm hoping it stretches out some!) the sizing issues at Lulu are killing me!

Anon@7:22, Thanks for the tip! I'm going to check that thing out! This is one of the reasons I just love this blog! Thank you again, LLA for providing such a helpful forum!

thanks Anon 8:49am. It's good to know I'm not crazy. LOL
