The Winter Sprinter pants are terrible in the front! Agree on the Keep it Up Jacket, the flap/dropped hem does not look good, particularly in that floral patterned one. It just looks like a random shirt coming below the jacket. Not sure about the collar and hood either. I would not pay full price for this, maybe $80 if it moves to clear.
The crotch on the Sprinter pants is really long it is so uncomfortable, horrible fit. The Base Runner pants are so much better.
I think a lot if the new stuff is so fugly! I'm waiting on a DHBH pullover in Zinfandel! Plz!
I would love a review on the tech fleece tights...I have the speed tight cozy pants, and I like them, but I wonder if the tech fleece would be enough on their own for cross country skiing? Also, I'm normally between a 6-8 in bottoms and I was able to do a 6 in the cozy tights...maybe it's the high waist?
Any one know when the DHBH pullover will be out?
I got the PN that Fashion Island was getting some of the ruffled items. I talked to them and they said that usually their boxes come in the AM but today they are coming in the PM and since they close early they won't be out until Friday or Saturday. They already had the ruffled pullover. I'm not going to fight the crowds on Black Friday so I'm hoping the ruffled stuff turns up in the upload soon.
Hi everyone, I would be a little worried about ordering anything from LUlulemon….it seems like they are having shipping problems and may not get item…Today I received some pants I ordered…I also received THE MAT which I did not order…inside the bow was a packing slip for another person who order a duffle/ NOT the MAT (with all their information..phone..email..address)1)The fedex label had my shipping2)The packing slip was for another person3)The item in box was not on the packing slip OR anything I had ordered….total screw-upSo when I called…they asked me a bunch of ???, wanted me to print a new label and ship it back…I told them they can come pick it up!!!!! I am not wasting my time…so tired if their crappy customer service when I have a problem, so not going out my way to help them.Like the time they charged my card and paypal, didn't ship the items , and then waited weeks to get charges reversed.Anyways, fair warning if your items are getting screwed up!!!
I sized down in the cozy tights as well. The waist was falling down in my normal 6.
Does anyone know the name of the floral pattern on the keep it up jacket? I am sure I saw a girl I my Zumba class wearing WU in that pattern? They were beautiful!
Anyone with a Guava Lava to Flash (Heathered Flash) comparison. I have a heathered flash vinyasa - do I need the BC/GL one?
FYI - my Newbury St (Boston) PN with all the Special Edition Black Friday merch lists a Calm & Cozy jacket in black "savasana camo 20cm embossed black"...I'm officially intrigued.
I bought the keep It Up jacket in white yesterday and returned it today! I just could not get over the back flap made of a different fabric that would not smooth out. The extra detail would not bother me at all if it were made of the same soft shell fabric. It does run on the small side and I did try on the size up before I made the final return. I'm going to say it'll probably end up in WMTM. If that's the case I might reconsider (in the larger size) because I liked everything else about it.Yesterday I also bought the new printed swiftly in Inkwell and wore it to train in this morning, I love it! But the Winter Sprinter pants went back with the jacket. They are indeed a dropped crotch, which I don't mind, in fact I like, but it didn't "drop" enough. The crotch felt like I was wearing my husbands pants. I did however exchange them for Take Me Om pants, which has the drop I like. The pleat in the front put me off at first but after I tried them on I loved how looked and felt to wear.I was surprised I also bought the black BS 1/2 zip. I don't need another black pullover, so I'll do a quick inventory on my day off tomorrow and tighten up my Lulu wardrobe. There may be something else I want in the next few weeks, although I'm not seeing anything so far, except I'd like the floral bottoms.Oh, and one more thing. It looks as if the stores have put a ton of stuff on the sale racks yesterday and today, so I doubt much more, if anything, will be put out on Friday. If you have a chance to stop by a store tonight it would save you the trip on Friday. Both stores I went to have most of the new things out too.
Wow, anon 11:15am! That is a REALLY serious error on LLL's part, especially with regards to someone else's private information!! What is going on with this company?
Heads up!! Many LLL stores open midnight on Thanksgiving.
Does anyone know when the Black Friday/thanksgiving upload happens?
That "camo 20cm" color can be seen on the mens side in jackets
Try on report for the Cozy Tech Fleece tights! The Richmond VA store had the black with the blue/green stripe waistband. The fabric is a little unusual, I am used to the silky Luxtreme of the Cozys. These suckers are snug. Take your time getting into them--the fabric needs a little help getting to the right places, but once it's there, it's there for the duration. They are thicker than the Cozy tights, but they are not bulky like other fleece tights I've tried. The might be a size-up item for some. The fabric seems very durable and less snag-prone than Luxtreme. There are a couple articulation seams around the knees that are subtle, and some other seams running down the side of the legs. The waist is high and holds it all in. I think the snug fit will help trap the body heat in. I think the length seems a little shorter than the Cozys, even though the length is listed as the same. There's no rouching at the bottom of these, so easy to hem for the petite ladies out there.
Marti said....So Angel Blue is coming back, hinted by the colored water bottles. Lulumum states Paris Pink is returning also. I sold my Angel Blue CRB, although I did love the color but not the feel of the material. I have a Paris Pink Define that I rarely wear. One Paris Pink item is more than enough. It's an overwhelming color..to me. I guess LLL is going back to all the money maker items/colors
@anon 11:15…I'm currently elbows-deep in the throes of a shipping error on Lululemon's part. I placed an order last Tuesday during the upload for a Calm and Cozy jacket, a CRB, and the bleached coral Vinyasa Scarf. I recently moved to AZ from Minnesota, so when the items hadn't arrived by Friday, I didn't stress it since that's how long it took for Minnesota. I also didn't bother to check the tracking number. Lo and behold, I get an email on Saturday from a woman who lives in California who had my order at her house. She had already contacted the GEC about the mix-up, and they were working with her and FedEx to get the order shipped out to me. In the meantime, I heard NOTHING from the GEC about any of this. I checked the tracking order from my confirmation email, and the number was only 4 digits…not even valid. So I called GEC, and they were very vague about how my order ended up in California, and basically kept repeating over and over again, "I don't know." I ended the call pretty irritated and took to the keyboard with my frustrations and emailed the GEC about this. Basically I told them that I was frustrated about the shipping mix-up, but what I was even more irritated about is that they placed the responsibility of getting my stuff to me on the person who had received my order in error. Had she not been an honest person, the order would have been lost, I would have been out over $200, and who knows what else. I told them that they should have reshipped my order from their ware house, and sent her a shipping label to send the mis-shipped package back to them. So I got a new tracking number from Lulu regarding my order coming to me from California. I checked the FedEx site yesterday, and there's a giant red exclamation point on the tracking info, stating that the apartment # of the shipping address is invalid. So I call FedEx. Apparently, they had no shipping information attached to the package whatsoever…not even my name, and they informed me that until the address was received, the package was just going to sit in California. They weren't willing to take my shipping information, and told me I had to contact Lulu about it. So I did…and proceeded to sit on hold with two different reps for about 15 minutes total. They asked me my address, and then I had them repeat it to me just to make sure they had it right. Finally it looks like my order is on its way and should be here on Friday. What a fiasco! To their credit, Lulu did offer me a $20 gift card for my troubles, but seriously. I also told them multiple times that they should give a gift card to the woman who got my package in error, since I wouldn't be getting my package at all had it not been for her honesty.I know this happens, and not just with Lulu. I just wish I could have gotten a little more information as to how all of this happened. It's disheartening to know that I'm not the only one dealing with this shipping information. It makes me hesitate to place any more online orders.
Completely OT- new styles and colors on YogaSmoga's site!
Off topic...twice I ordered the Surge neck warmer. Twice they sent me the grey pique. GRRRRRR "computer error"
I also sized down in the speed tight cozy -- my measurements are between a 6 and an 8, but I take an 8 in most pants. The 6 was a much better fit in the cozy for me as well. Plus fully opaque thanks to the thick, tight weaves fabric.
tried winter sprinter pants on today, thought I would love them but way to high waisted and bulky, not like the base runners at all. Will probably get the speed tights tech fleece or even cozy as they felt much better around the waist than the winter sprinters.
These pieces have existed for a long time at Titika. It's EXACTLY replicating Titika Active Wear's line down to the floral print...?
@ anon 11:15 am & 2:15 pm - something like that happened last year, too, where the addresses got spliced and people's orders got lost/took scenic routes around the country. I don't get why lululemon continues to have so many IT problems.
Geez, all these recent stories of order mix ups make me wonder if the same IT people in charge of the Lulu website are the same bozos who screwed up the Obamacare website. It was a Canadian company...
Stopped by the Corte Madera, CA store this evening hoping to find the new WUP in beautiful baroque inkwell.It was on the PN issued today, so I knew it must be in an unopened box, if it wasn't out yet, which of course it wasn't.One of the sales people was kind enough to rummage thru the boxes and find a pair in the size I wanted.The inkwell bb print is very subtle...not as much color contrast as the deep zin version. I like that.I prefer the inkwell bb print offered in the Speed Short, as the deep zin accent is more apparent on the speed short material than on the luon WUP. Not that big a deal. It's a beautiful print and colorway.
