Upload!!


You'd better hurry if you want to get this Forme Jacket, it's selling very fast. Though the title calls this jacket "Herringbone" the fabric is the Pique. The color it comes in - black/deep coal (color code BLDO) - is the same for the pique Wunder Under and Skinny Will Pants.  Moreover, people have contacted the GEC via the chat feature and they confirmed the title is wrong and this is the pique Forme.

If you are wondering whether there actually will be a Herringbone Forme jacket coming, the answer is yes. The above is the product notice email photo for the BLDO (Black/Deep Coal) Forme Jackets, i.e., the pique.

This is the product notice photos for the Heathered Slate Forme jackets. Heathered Slate = HESA = herringbone color code.

A Heathered Slate, i.e., Herringbone, Nice Asana Jacket was uploaded tonight.

 A solid Green Bean Star Runner Pullover was uploaded. 

New Paisley Inkwell Cool Racerback.

The new Karma Longsleeves look interesting. I want to try these on in the store.

The Wee Space October Inkwell Run For Fun crops were uploaded. I certainly hope there is another style run crop coming in this color. These crops do not have a back zipper pocket and I won't buy run crops without one.



The Ride Inside crops were uploaded. You can clearly see the diamond mesh used in the vertical leg panel. I am not a fan of this mesh as it's too see-through. I tend to like lulu's spin capsules a lot but I am not impressed by this fall's version at all.

I ordered the Pique Forme tonight. Did you order anything?

I ordered the pique forme also... wanted a size 6 but I was ten minutes late to the upload and it was already sold out (in ten minutes?!?!). I ordered it in a size 8 and am crossing my fingers that it runs small.

Well, I've been waiting for this forme since you first posted it here and I got screwed tonight. :( I was refreshing the what's new page all evening and at 10:45 mst it wouldn't load. I kept trying and the damn page wouldn't load. When it finally did, maybe five minutes later, my size 4 as well as the 6 were sold out. :( Ironically, I'm the one that commented on your original post about this jacket that it looked like a website crasher. Grrrr!

Anonymous said...

Can someone please tell me if the piqué forme a size down item? Or should I go with my define size? TIA!!

Anonymous said...

I bought the Forme in a size 4, I'm normally a 6 for all my tops. Hoping it runs big like normal Formes do...

LuluAddict said...

I'm reading people are canceling their Forme orders due to the mis-identification so keep refreshing /checking back to see if one pops up in your size.

Disgruntled anon here :) thanks for the tip LLA- I'm keeping my eye on it.

Anonymous said...

I ordered the pique forme and I'm hoping it doesn't get cancelled. I was late to the upload. Fingers crossed, I don't wake up to an email from Lulu saying it's sold out.

What a relief the Forme uploaded was the Pique and not the Herringbone!! I woke up 30 min after the upload (I'm in Europe so it happens at 6:45am for me. Hate that) and when I looked at the Forme, my size was sold out. Only when I read this blog, I realized it was the Pique, which I already own in the Define (loooove it!).
I'll make sure to wake up in time next week for the Herringbone! Ended up ordering just three Swiftly's: LS, SS and RB.

I am so happy that I didn't fall for the Midnight Iris Forme ii now that this pique Forme is here! Please tell me if it is TTS. II'll be stalking it at my local store.. Thank you, LLA and fellow addicts!

Seattlite said...

Not liking this upload of spin stuff. Boo :( I need better cycle gear!!

Nothing for me. I bought Run For Fun crops last week in the black paisley, as well as a few sale items.. but other than that I'm bored with these uploads as of late.

Anonymous said...

I tried buying the pique form jacket also. I was online within seconds of the upload, I had the jacket in my cart and was all the way through checkout, but when I clicked on the "complete order" button nothing happened. And I clicked it again, and still nothing happened. I wasn't sure what to do then, since I didn't want to get a bunch of orders if it was messed up... and when I went back on the site to look at the jacket I saw that my size was gone. That was the only item I was waiting up for. It was actually the only item I've waited up for in over a month.
I think it's disappointing, as someone who lives 4 hours from the nearest store, when items are sold out within minutes online. I hope the people buying those items also live at least a couple hours from a store. It would be extra frustrating to know that some people have the opportunity to go to the store for items, but instead buy them all out online.... that is my rant.

I'm disappointed this morning that I got myself out of bed to order the jacket and now I'm exhausted and I have to get ready for work! And no jacket. Sad.

I am in the minority, I do not care for the Forme jacket in pique, even though it is pique which I love. I like the Herringbone Nice Asana jacket but will think about it.

I will be picking up the paisely/inkwell CRB and boogie shorts.

Anonymous said...

Now that I see the close-up pics of the ride inside l/s and it's partially made of vitasea (pill prone), this shirt is an easy pass for me.

Still pretty disappointed that they've not made a simpler pullover than the star runner p/u. I think they're also late on winter running gear. Earlier than this time last year, items like the Run Bundle Up jacket were already out. Also imagine they are unlikely to deliver a true winter running tight.

Anonymous said...

Yay! I bought the Forme jacket in Herringbone or Piqué who cares which pattern I LOVE both! So what ever they send me is great! I also got the Special Addition LS Swiftly Paisley in Heathered black because they sold out quickly in CANADA. The one tip I have is to check out as soon as you see something you LOVE hey it's free shipping. Don't put it in your shopping cart! I've learned the hard way and have lost out on fast selling items.

Nickers said...

I was half asleep when I ordered the Forme & I remember thinking that it didn't look like herringbone! But, to be honest, I think I actually prefer the look of the pique instead

Anonymous said...

Every year I miss the brushed pants Why is there only black available in Tall? No herringbone. I have the Pique Stride or In Stride whichever is hooded, I can never remember. So I can't bring myself to buy the Forme, I know the quality is different since I purchased the denim Forme and gave it away new with tags. If I remember correctly it ran a little big.
It would be nice if they offer the herringbone in a different color scheme like in the pass. The pique and herringbone grey/black colors are so similar I can't justify getting any herringbone Bring the Define back in herringbone!!!!! and tall brushed pants in colors other than solid black

Anonymous said...

I am SO tired of missing items!!! Has anyone used the Lulu personal shopper? lulushopper@outlook or something like that? I wanted to know if you had any luck with her. I want that Pique jacket!

Anonymous said...

Geez lulu- new website stinks and couldnt even see Images. luckily i was looking for the "real" herringbone which wasnt uploaded. will be store stalking! It's def a tts- I got the piqué at a partner store and size up was too big.

Anonymous said...

Almost got the Pique Forme, but I couldn't justify the price!! That's ridiculous for a track jacket... a jacket with no hood nonetheless! Had it in my size, in my bag, and decided to pull the plug :/

Anonymous said...

I feel like those forme jackets would be so much nicer if they were just an inch or so longer. On my freakishly long torso they don't work at all.

Anonymous said...

Any thoughts on when Lulu will release the herringbone Forme?

RunLikeTheWind said...

New solid Swiftlies in Heathered Inkwell--looks exactly the same as the "black" version that's been around forever, but is now sold out. Can anyone confirm the colors are the same/different?
The Spin crops are weird--too much mesh, too many seams and layering. Too fussy for me.
Might check out the pretty pink CRB in-store.

brittd44 said...

Yup! Ordered the Pique Forme Jacket, Run for fun crops in September Wee are from space (which I had in the Inspires but love the run for fun way more), Brushed astro pant with pique and herringbone, the swiftly tank in heathered plum (finally after wanting it forever) and the black dog runner pants. What an expensive morning for me...

Anonymous said...

I'm glad that the Pique Form wasn't sold out yet in size 8 when I woke up at 7:00am. That's all I ordered. I will be tempted by the Herringbone one, too as these textured items are my all-time favorites. So soft!

Anonymous said...

would also love to hear if Formes in general are size up - i think pique jackets tend to be size ups but maybe that's changed?

also, FYI, ordered the black hyper stripe Karma LS in 8 and tried on the 6 in store, and it's one of those in-between, shoulders vs. middle things. i kept the 8 in part because i love the stripes and they didn't have that color in store. the 6 fit better in the waist (very fitted) but was tight in the shoulders. 8 is a little gappy in the waist but comfy. the scooped hem is pretty tolerable. it's definitely thin vitasea but mined didn't seem sheer. might go for the blue striped one, too! i don't love it like i love the one from last year - daily yoga(?) LS (the reversible one with 2 layers) but i think i will reach for it often.

Anonymous said...

nothing for me. The "pique" forme tempted me but at the end of the day, it's still a forme with an uglier, less flattering fit than the define (for me at least).

Disposable Income Girl said...

I'm not really feeling anything. The Pique Forme is nice, but needed. I guess those dotted Inkwell WU never made the upload.

Anonymous said...

Nada for me:). The Forme is an inferior version of the Define so no matter what the fabric or color, I will not be buying.

Anonimouse said...

I didn't order anything. Apart from the Forme, which I don't need in Canadian winters there was nothing I wanted or needed.

Anyone got any news about Yoga Smoga?

I love my Jump and Play Crops from them now that the smell of the dye has faded and wouldn't mind a pair of Tippy Toe Leggings.

I wish Lulu would increase their server space so that people can actually get their orders in on upload night. It really is a bit crazy that this happens every week on the same night at the same time and they haven't put two and two together.

Deezee007 said...

I'm REALLY bummed out. I have become a fan of the new Nice Asana Jackets as replacement for my Stride Jackets. But WTH!! Tonight's upload features a beautiful herringbone print (that I so wanted to order) for $10 above the already high $110 price point? For a print?? Not cool Lulu! We have stood by you through QC after QC issue and deserve an honest price point no matter what print it might be.

Ashlee said...

I ordered a Forme jacket at 5 o clock this morning. I had to get a size 8. I'm bigger chested so sometimes a size 8 works better. I could fit in a 6 in defines but always took a size 8 just do to not wanting it skin tight. I hope it works out.

Ljg680 said...

Ugh the one time I didn't set an alarm for 2am (east coast) for the upload , I miss the forme jacket! I wanted the piqué one and by 6 am size 4 and 6 are sold out !!! Out of desperation I ordered an 8 knowing good and well it's going to be too big. Now I have to stalk stores for it. This is ridiculous :(. I really detest the panic frenzy their limited stock creates. >:[

Anonymous said...

I see this is a regular Forme jacket and not a Forme II. I might hold out for the II version in the herringbone.

Anonymous said...

Everyone complaining about it being sold out--make your way to the stores!

I know some of you dont leave near one, but if youre in LA region like me, there's 12 stores you can feasible get to :)

Most stores in our region receive large drops on Tuesdays and Thursdays (not sure about other areas) so call those evenings to check for your size/product!

Anonymous said...

I don't get the intrigue with the forme jacket, the material looks like it will pill easily, I also recall evaryone hating on it when it first came out, and now it's a highly desired item.
I like the green star runner top, I hope it doesn't sell out.

Had an 8 and a 10 in Forme jacket in shopping cart, then 8 sold out, then an hour or so later it was available again... after the annoying process of emptying my shopping cart of everything i'd ever placed in it, i was able to order both to try on. so keep checking back if your size is gone.

does anyone else have this problem with their shopping cart? if i log back into my account after some time, all of a sudden there are 15 items in my cart, some from months ago. i have to remove them every time. and half the time it gets stuck logging me in. i can't believe i bother...

Anonymous said...

that is too funny they don't even know how to label their own items, i'm glad I don't care for either of those fabrics, I have to say I maybe would have like the nice asana jacket in either herringbnone or piqua but now in that horrendous color blocking I sure wish that trend would go away already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

@LuluAddict-do you think this Forme jacket will be in store??

Also-does this fit tts or on the bigger size?

Anonymous said...

Totally OT and not sure you'll see this in the flood of comments you're sure to have today, but uh-oh, lulu!!!

Anonymous said...

Nothing for me surprisingly! I actually really am considering the en route jacket in the light grey color but want to see in person first. The karma shirt feels and looks really nice but i held the shirt up to the light and the side seams on both sides had broken stitches which would have turned into holes after one wash.

Anonymous said...

Is it a Forme or Forme 2? So confused bc it does have the cuffins....and the original Forme doesn't. Also, anonymous your size is back up!! I just have no idea which jacket I actually bought:@(!!!

LuluAddict said...

It has the cuffins so it's the Forme II. The lulu website is not the most accurate when it comes to labeling/identifying their stuff correctly.

Anonymous said...

Anon 5:29 am. I used Lulu shopper last week. She was great. I was looking for several items, and she was able to find about half of them. Not bad.
I missed the Pique Jacket too, but waiting to see if more come in since it was labeled incorrectly.

Jen said...

Size 6 available in the pique as of 12:32 PDT

Danielle S said...

i got the herringbone nice asana, I like the colorblocked sleeves, I know many do no, I was not tempted but the forme, thats unbelievable it sold out that fast!! wow. Must be a gorgeous jacket. Im more comfy with the bum covering pieces :) lol. also got 2 of the new spin tanks and the new spin long sleeve. I have the one from last year and find it to be one of my go to items, I just love it so we'll see about this one.

Anonymous said...

Nothing for me this week...there was nothing tempting! I am really looking for a midweight run half zip or jacket, but am not in love with the Star Runner or the Can't Stop.

Anonimouse said...

Anon @ 8.59, not all of us live near stores, my round trip to my 'local' store is 6 hours! It's not an option on the off chance they might have what I want.

Anonymous said...

Nothing for me! But I will be heading to my local store later this week to check out the blue wee are from space RFYL crops. Not sure what the craze is with the piqué Forme. I'd have to see it in person, but on line it looked quite boring. I'm more interested in the herringbone Nice Asana if it comes to my store.

Anonymous said...

Are the brushed wunder unders worth the $92 price tag? I live in SoCal if that makes a difference. Are they the same "feel" as the herringbone from a month or two ago? Soft on the outside and softer inside?

Anonymous said...

I can only order from my ipad, which I keep on my night table on upload nights. The Lulu what,s new page didn,t even load properly until 2:00 pm EST. By that time everything I wanted had sold out....oh, well.

3crazykids said...

Danielle S, I like the Nice Asana Herringbone too, colorblocking and all. I did buy the forme too just to see what the craze is about but I can't wait to see the Asana.

Neither my iPad nor my iPhone would upload the pictures when I checked the LLL website right 20 min or so after the upload. I thought it was sth with my devices or home network. I'm also overseas.

Anonymous said...

My phone wasn't showing pictures at the product page level - I could only see them on the what's new page. I'm in the US, Android. Website was fine though.

Nothing for me - I'm glad I read the blog since the jacket was mislabeled!

Loving the Star Runner pullover, but really can't justify it at the price point. Maybe I'll put it on my Christmas wish list!

Anonymous said...

@ 10:38 AM, thanks for the link. This is typical, rude LLL, thinking they are funny. It is absolutely rude and shameful that they would put this on their window, i.e. "we do partner's yoga, not partner's card", especially given what partner's card is all about. That is fine if they do not want to participate in the program, there is no need to be so insulting. I am aware individual stores are "responsible" for what goes on the window, but this is really classless.I seriously have to reconsider continuing to shop there, because time and time again, they do this type of thing. I've spent a lot of money there and I have more CRB's than I care to admit, but perhaps I finally have to go cold turkey and cut off the Lululemonaid.

Anonymous said...

@5:25 PM: I am the anon who posted that link re: Dallas and the Partner Card. I am with you - this might be the straw that broke this camel's back. I keep swearing I'll swear off the Lululemonaid because of their generally ugly attitude and business philosophy, but this really seems nasty - even if it was just ignorance by one store or individual, it does cross a line. I saw this right after I had jumped on the Pique Forme bandwagon, but maybe if I return the stuff I ordered today I'll feel a little better about myself!
Sometimes I think I still shop at Lulu instead of starting to smoke cigarettes again - a little self-destructive, a guilty pleasure, I know I shouldn't do it...

Anonymous said...

Since a few of you mentioned it, I was searching 'pique' on ebay and came across a few pique defines...drool...I agree way better than Forme.

Anonymous said...

I do all my odering online due to having no store within 3 hours one way. Therfore, I love reading the blogs and trying to decide on purchases based off shoppers who actually get to feel,try and test sizes.Does anyone have anything on the en route jacket? Does not seem to be selling online...is it the price,zipper detail or length? I would love feedback because it is so difficult to judge.
Also, never knew there was a certain day for WMTM UPLOAD.Can someone confirm if this is true?
Thanks to all Lulu followers.

@ 10:18 PM, it usually occurs on Thursday, and for the longest time, it is always early morning Eastern Time, maybe 5 a.m. Lately, that cannot be said to be true. Sometimes it's earlier, sometimes it doesn't show up until way later in the day.

Anonymous said...

Ugh ok even though I said nothing earlier and I was leaning towards en route I caved and bought the piqué forme... I have the piqué wunder unders I figured why not!?

Irene C said...

If any of you bought a size 8 pique Forme and don't want it, I would love to have a chance to purchase it from you. So sad I missed out! Thanks for any help!
