All Scubas $50 Off on the Website and in the Stores - One Day Only

Thanks to the readers who alerted me to the $50 off Scuba sale happening today. Apparently, the sale started around 11 pm PST last night - that'll teach me to turn off the computer early. I ended up getting a gray scuba but the Special Edition scubas are also $50 off.  Scubas in stores are also $50 off, including sale rack Scubas so people are getting some nice deals. I like this kind of sale rather than lulu hauling a boatload of scubas to a warehouse sale that only a few people can go to.

Did you get one?

What's the sizing on scubas? I don't have one yet and am nervous to buy one online without trying it on... Reviews make it seem as tho the sizing is all over the place!

Got a Scuba in Mellow Yellow. Hope it is a pretty yellow color in person. Thanks for the heads up on the sale!

Lauren F. said...

I got the grey scuba too, LLA! I had both the grey and the surge in my cart, but the surge sold out while I was checking out :/ Thanks bloggers for the alert! Great deal!

LuluAddict said...

@ Ari - I think they are mostly TTS. Currently, a 10 is what fits me best in most jackets at lulu these days. Do you have any other lululemon jackets? I'd say take your forme size but some people like those to fit on the snugger side.

Anonymous said...

Thanks so much for the alert! I got a gray and lux ruffle for myself and a black and gray for my mom :)

ari @ whatarisaid said...

I'm usually between a 6 and an 8, with a 6 fitting me rather snug (like in the winter sprinter hoodie) and making me feel like I need to "suck it in" lol. Maybe I'll grab an 8... At the very least, they don't look to be final sale so I guess I could always return it if necessary.

LuluAddict said...

I went back and got a bleached coral Scuba, too.

Anonymous said...

So frustrating! Tried to buy the Chevron dot in size 10, got to complete the order and it wouldnt go through...sold out? Ok fine, i'll buy the 12. Got to complete the order AGAIN and it wouldnt go through! Ahhh! Lulu, get your 'ish together and stop teasing me!
Talked to the online help for the first time... so pointless....

LuluAddict said...

@anon 8:24 am - they probably sold out as you were ordering. I haven't read of anyone having web issues today.

Sara said...

Does anyone know if the price decrease is in stores as well?

De said...

Thanks for the scuba sale alert! I grabbed one in black online plus the new black & white striped CRB. Will make a nice combo. You can't beat $58!!

Anonymous said...

I got a gray one too! Yay!!!

Anonymous said...

I bought the bleached coral. Thought going forward into the spring that it would be the best color for me. Thinking I need the striped crb now to go with it.

Looking for an angel for faded zap scuba in a 6? willing to return the favour, tia :)

JenO said...

email is jennifer.m.oke @ gmail.com, forgot to add that to my angel request :)

Anonymous said...

Yes, they were selling out faster than people could buy them!!! I managed to snag a black and grey (was hoping for the B/W print one but oh well)! Thanks for the heads up LLA!!!!

Anonymous said...

Will these scubas be final sale? Just wondering since they are on sale but don't mention that. Hate to order and it not fit! Thanks!!

amanda said...

I know the Petal Pop one is kind of silly, but at this price, I couldn't resist!

Anonymous said...

Score!!! Brisk Bloom in 4, I never would have bought at $108. Like I need another Scuba!! Appreciate the sale LLL and thanks for the heads up LLA. Happy New Year!!

Anonymous said...

The Scuba is TTS for me. I'm my normal size 4. (5', 104#, 32D for reference).

Anonymous said...

Almost all the size 6 sold out so I ended up getting the Bow Scuba in the Batoque print. looks very pretty and $78.00 is not a bad price:)

Anonymous said...

Thanks for letting your followers know about this :) You're the best! Making the newer Scubas even shorter than the old ones was a bad decision by LLL that has probably led to the unprecedented $50.00 markdowns per jacket. Any of the Scubas that are banded on the bottom with a different color and/or pattern look like crop-tops and make for an unflattering look on most people. More coverage is always better especially for a cold weather apparel item, imo. Again, thanks for the heads up!

Anonymous said...

Bought one in faded zap, size 4. I'll probably check out the store too. $58 is such a great price!

Anonymous said...

JenO- idk where you are but I tried to order for you and the 6 was out on the US side. Sorry. :(

Anonymous said...

Ha ha ha ha ha, wonder if they've finally conceeded that this jacket is a bummer for most anyone above 5'2" it looks juvinille on imo!!! maybe this new ceo said: sell those and make what sold well the longer length scuba and whats funny is when they had the side panels and longer length it was like pulling teeth to get one they were super stingy on colors and numbers i used to wait and wait for a color to come out to buy, i'm pretty picky btw, anyway just when i was ready to buy more they discontinued i was super bummed because i didn't buy hardly any because i didn't forsee them discontinueing them! anyway hopefully they will re do a nice long scuba could even stand a couple more inches that the original imo, and im only 5'4" i think longer length in torso makes me look taller and leaner- not just my opinion either- it does!

Anonymous said...

They are only final sale if they were purchased marked down from the original price (from WMTM, or the markdown rack in store). Otherwise, they are subject to the same return policy as usual.

LuluAddict said...

I wish they would go back to the old design, too, with the heavier French terry, longer length, and rubbed side panels. From what I have read my speculation is dead on - they had too many left over to drag to a couple of warehouse sales so are trying the $50 off flash sale thing. Lots of colors and sizes are sold out now so it seems to be successful. I hope they do more flash sales rather than a couple of warehouse sales than only a small pool of people can get to.

Janelle Nelson said...

I got the pedal pop. I am not a big fan of the scubas, but on sale I think I would wear it. When I first saw the pedal pop I didn't like a whole lot, but then it grew on me. BTW LLA thank you for the heads up!

Katy Gibson said...

I'm not seeing the discount on the website -- am I missing something?

LuluAddict said...

Katy- are you in the us or Canada? The sale is only on those parts of the website.

Anonymous said...

are they returnable? It doesn't look like a wmtm sale. love it!! just bummed I spent $128 for the bow scuba before Christmas. Might get the petal :)

Anonymous said...

Thanks so much for the alert! I got the Brisk Bloom scuba for $58, and yesterday in store I scored some Plum still pants for $49. I feel super lucky to have saved almost $100 on both of these items.

Anonymous said...

i wish i had checked last night before i went to bed! i would've loved a Parallel Stripe Scuba. as it is, size 6 is sold out in pretty much everything. i did pick up a Petal Pop for my daughter (she's 12 and that was her favorite of the size 4 left). :)

i wish i could make it into the store today, but my store is about 35 minutes away. that's just not going to happen.

Lynne said...

Got the chevron dot at my local store (Madison, WI) - it was one of only a few size 4s they had. They told me it is NOT final sale (can still return within the normal 2 week window). I also got a black Energy bra, just because I need one, and it rang up at $29!!!! I had her ring another color but it came up full price.

Anonymous said...

I was in a store this am in Canada they were not on sale at 10:20 this morning.

Anonymous said...

I'm really annoyed, I ordered one yesterday that was on final sale. Told today sorry we don't care that it is now $30 cheaper. This company is really really sucks in customer service.

Anonymous said...

I went to the Vancouver store and got a couple of scubas for a friend and myself for $19 but I stupidly grabbed the wrong size because I was in a hurry. *face palm* Does anyone know if these puppies will shrink in the wash if I use hot water and throw it in the dryer?

Stephenie said...

Oh man!! I really wanted a chevron dot or parallel stripe scuba but they are gone in my usual size six and I live three hours from a store!!! Grrr! If anyone finds one and is willing to angel for me please email @ james2704@charter.net thanks!!

Anonymous said...

For anyone that needs sizing advice: 5'7'', 120, 32DD here and I have to get a 4 or 6 in Scubas. Solid colors/colorblocked ones I can usually get away with 4, prints I generally need a 6.

Anonymous said...

Great sale online! My hubby bought me a bow SE scuba for Christmas but I kept the receipt. I just ordered another one and will return the first!

Anonymous said...

@ Anon 11:42 am It really sucks you bought something yesterday that is on sale today, but that's how sales work for all companies (not always announced) and not necessarily a problem with customer service. Perhaps you can call in for a price adjustment?

I myself got a Scuba in basic black, my first one so I'm pretty excited I got it on sale. =)

Anonymous said...

Just an FYI: if you haven't tried on the parallel stripe, then I highly recommend that you do if possible. This particular colorway was extra short and boxy IMO. It was an easy pass for me.

Anonymous said...

I noticed the SE Scubas were 108$ this morning, but I just figured that it was a price adjustment.

I later ordered (after reading lla) a plain black and the parallel stripe with the brisk bloom hood (!!!!). I had to stop myself from ordering the chevron dot & the coral!

Thank you so much for the heads up :)

Anonymous said...

What a nice Saturday morning surprise! I am one of the seemingly few who is drawn to the Petal Pop Scuba. Was considering it at $108, but at $58, it was a no-brainer. Wish I could have gotten the PS Scuba too, but my size sold out prior to this sale anyway. I hope LLL does more of this kind of sale in the future.

JenO said...

@anonymous 11:46 am

I wouldn't hot wash and put it in the drier, the colour will probably fade and make it look old and worn! Also, they are advertised as pre-shrunk, so I don't think you will have any success trying to shrink it, although I have never tried. I've never noticed any of my lulu items shrinking in the wash but again I never use hot water, and line dry all items. Hope that helps!

Thanks to the anon who tried to find the faded zap for me. I'm still considering sizing up but I am a tts 6 in scubas, have never tried on an 8 and worried it would be too loose. Too bad, I had my eye on that colour for awhile, def would have been worth it for the md price!!

Laura Morford said...

I couldn't resist the petal pop one too. Liked it a lot better in person and multiple color options with it. I bought a 6 and like the fit but not if it shrinks. Does anyone know if they will shrink?

Anonymous said...

First time in about 4 months I checked the website (I have tried to stay away) and saw the price. Thought it was a mistake. I placed to order to see if I would get a "correction on price" notification and ...nothing. So just thought it was dumb luck. Turns out it was - I checked the web the one day there's a sale. Sweet! Got black.

Anonymous said...

Thy had them on sale in store today in London, ON. My friends bought at 8 between. I tired on two different ones and decided to pass. I find them too stiff and bulky. Even at $58 it's not a good deal for me if I'm not going to wear them. I did manage to get the last winter sprinter in store for $79. At $89 I wasn't that interested but $79 I felt I couldn't leave it. One can never have too many black 1/2 zips!

Anonymous said...

I ordered the Bow SE Scuba. I usually wear a 6 in bras and tanks/loose tops, but I order an 8 in jackets and layering pieces. I ordered an 8 in this - do you think I'll be ok with the 8?

Anonymous said...

LLA, I too think this flash sale was brilliant! Now....did it kill them to throw us a bone? No, and they moved tons of stock!

I was in the Palo Alto store first thing this morning returning PS crops (I bought two, kept the smaller ones) when the $50 off scubas started. The only one I even considered was the brand new Petal Pop, even though I don't care for it I tried it on anyway, only because it just came out (too bad they didn't come out with the new blue yet!) It was fine, but at $78? No. They had a TON of the black and white Brisk Blossom.

Yes, the scubas already marked down were super cheap, but still ugly, and some maybe as little as $20-30 bucks, but like another commenter posted, I need another scuba...not! The last one I bought was last years Lacoflage and before that it had been a couple of years. I own about 10 total, all old school thick and substantial.

Tons of stuff still on sale, but I live close to an outlet and honestly it's all the same stuff, so I didn't feel a rush to buy "leftovers".

I tried on the PP CRB, but it's too poly and it goes white when it stretches out. Such nice colors, too bad they missed on the print.

The new crops are NOT a size down option. The fabric is super tight woven and had little stretch. I did like them enough to buy them, but ended up with the BB grey/black WUP, so not today.

They only had one of my size of the BB WUP and I'm not crazy about the pattern placement, but I brought them home to decide. If I take them back I'll get the new crops in the new blue color.

They are just slightly sheer though. Not pantyhose sheer like the run pants in the same print (sorry, I forget the names), but depending on what you plan on doing in them....let's just say, no full squats, OR front row yoga forward bends. If you wear the right underwear, or underwear at all, then no problem, but if you go without, don't wear them in the sun!

I also bought the new pink Push R Limits. I love that tank and I'm glad to see it's a little longer these days. I resisted the DZ and I'm glad I did. This new pink has a LOT of purple undertones, and it worked for me.

Anonymous said...

I've shrunk my scubas before( mainly by accident) if you dry it on hot

Anonymous said...

I didn't buy one, only because I have bought several Lulu jackets in the past couple days and got a GW for Christmas. If I had bought one, it would have been the Divorce Scuba that put my marriage under water, lol!

I already have the plum hyperstripe and a really awesome navy blue Sherpa fleece lined hoodie from JCrew, so I really couldn't justify it. I can't really justify all the skirts and Speed shorts I bought this winter either, but those, I could not resist!

Anonymous said...

Thanks LuluAddict for the heads up! Super excited. Made it down to my store and was able to try on the parallel stripe (which I had my heart set on) but nope - too short and boxy. Did nothing for me. I thought I would try on the Brisk Bloom and was totally surprised! Size 8 fit perfectly and it was a good 3"'s longer than the parallel stripe and GORGEOUS. Brought it home and my hubby said "stunning". Yippeee.
Made my holidays. SO HAPPY.

Anonymous said...

LLA, has Lulu ever done a "BAM" upload before? This was all new to me!

Ching-a-ling said...

I agree with you, this is MUCH better than a warehouse sale. Not sure I'll EVER attempt one again. So envious of those getting theirs at $19 and $29. But I'm thrilled to pieces that I got mine at $39!

Anonymous said...

I nabbed an SE scuba Ruffled Up in store - there weren't many options in my size range, so I was happy to grab this. I was there anyways to return some gifts so it was a nice surprise.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the alert. I agree that it is good that they did this so more people who want one have access versus just outlet or warehouse sale. Finally they have clued in. Maybe that's Laurent's doing?

But I was not even tempted when I was in store today. I have 3 original Scubas and the Scuba Stretch will never satisfy me. Tried them on before and really dislike how thin, short and boxy they are. For me it would be a waste of money.

I did get a marked down Special Edition Paisley Swiftly s/s in the black/dark grey in my usual size 4. Would never have expected to find one at this point past Boxing Day. I don't know if that one even went to wmtm but I don't really care for the angel wing or pretty pink currently on there. I also have the l/s paisley (in black) from when it was released. I did pay full price then as I felt it worth it and that it would go fast. I guess I made the right choice and am happy to get this one marked down. With my marked down (more than wmtm) dog runner pant purchase yesterday, I'm pretty content.

Attention Toronto Shoppers: Queen Street store had a fair amount of items left. Less selection in sizes 2 & 4 but quite a bit left in size 6 and up.

I got a brisk bloom. Been eyeing it for a few days but planned to wait til Tuesday in case there was other stuff I liked better to use my gift cards on. Can't beat it for $58! Thanks for the heads up LLA!!

Anyone notice that this scuba hoodie sale showed up under a new section on the LLL website called 'Bam!!'
? Maybe new deals will show up under this section again tomorrow! Fingers crossed

Anonymous said...

I have 10 Scubas and I wash them all the same - cold cycle, hang dry, then 10 mins in dryer high heat to "fluff" it up. I noticed my solid colors did not shrink at all, but my patterned ones did by a good 1-2 inches all over. Some are also more stiff than the others and sizing is all over the place based on patterns. I am usually a 10, but lately, I find them to run bigger than usual but softer too. I am happy they are $50 off so I bought a bunch today. Such a good deal!

LuluAddict said...

@ De - hoping so. I've read a rumor that more sweet markdowns will happen but they are supposed to be store only. However, that was the initial rumor for the $50 off Scuba md, too, and it showed up on the website. I've read stores only learned about the $50 off deal when they showed up at work this morning. Anyway, I'll definitely be scanning the website more and definitely heading to my stores more for the next few days.

Kw said...

Thanks LLA for the the head's up. I saw it a little too late to get the color I wanted in my size. Boo hoo.
I am more than a little annoyed with Lululemon on this. Like you and most of your readers, I spend thousands of dollars on their product and they do NOTHING to identify or recognize their best customers, who, by the way, are their best advocates. Would it have killed them to email their top customers a quick advance warning on this one? They really need some help in the customer loyalty department.

Anonymous said...

if anyone ends up with a 2 or 4 in heathered surge, the grey one with inkwell sleeves, or the inkwell/green space dye ones, i would love to buy them! i missed out. :( had the 2 in heathered surge in my cart and during the last stage of checkout it kept telling me that my ccv was not correct. finally it took it then i got the no longer available message. :(

thanks!

The Bam link is still on homepage, but when you put scuba hoodie in cart then it now goes back to original price

LuluAddict said...

Bam is gone and the prices are back up to regular now.

And a few of the colors are gone when they put up to regular price that had a few left..must be going to WMTM…orange soda was left in a couple sizes and I believe the guava lava and a couple others has a 2 left

Angelica Teaupa said...

Ha! I thought the same thing, that it was a website error. It will be my first LLL scuba hoodie - would have never paid full price.

Anonymous said...

I scored the Bold Bloom scuba last night, I wouldn't have bought the jacket without the sale.
Thanks, LLA for letting us know about the sale. Its so funny, I'm a complete newbie when it comes to LLL bloggers/etc on the web. I just happened to visit this site last night looking for more info, and I ended up with a pretty cool jacket.

Thank you ladies for your comments about scuba shrinkage. I'm normally a 4/6 and thought that it was a size 6 that I was grabbing out of the pile, but to my dismay it was an 8 when I got home! I was in a hurry to attend a family commitment and I shouldn't even have been shopping, but I couldn't resist making a dash to the lulu store when I heard about the sale. I'll try throwing it in the dryer to see what happens. If it doesn't shrink then that's okay, I'm still happy as a clam in my first scuba! Thank you for the heads-up! :o)

I got my first 2 Scuba Stretches. One in Split Pea (Whoa, Bright) but I love it. The other one I got was the slalom stripe printed inkwell green bean. At the SF Grant St. store there were tons of Blue Moon Pow Stripe ones. Also tried on the Black SE Ruffle one. It was not flattering for a girl with junk in her trunk. Thanks for posting about the sale!

I know this is old...but do you think this flash sale will happen again this year?
