Upload!!

Gratitude Wrap

Hustle Jacket

New Moto Jacket
Passage Sweater

Post Chaturanga Pullover

Feel Good Pants

Perfect Paris Cool Racerback
The Gratitude Wrap has shown up. I passed on ordering one (for now, I might cave to peer pressure) but I did order my old favorite Feel Good pants. My current ones are now too big for me. I also ordered the Paris Perfection Cool Racerback. I am also debating ordering the Passage Sweater.

What did you get?

Update - I went back and ordered the heathered Inkwell GW. I couldn't take the peer pressure. I also noticed Canada got this baby and we didn't:

A heathered herringbone black white Forme II jacket.

Good grief. I kept refreshing the Lulu site to see if the Gratitude wrap would get uploaded. My size was instantly sold out in deep zin but managed to get the inkwell one before it also sold out! Did Lulu only upload a handful?! I'm so annoyed I have to go track the deep zin one in store. Ugh.

Anonymous said...

Gulp, this is the most i've ever spent on an upload. I ordered three GWs (heathered white, heathered deep zin, and heathered inkwell) and the post chaturunga pullover in black. I probably will sent one or two items back but i wanted to nab them before they sell out so i can at least try them. I want the paris CRB and the feel good pants too but I don't think that they will sell out that fast and my wallet couldn't take a harder hit tonight!!

Gratitude wrap in heathered black & post chaturanga in black. I like it zipped up but when the neck is folded down it looks silly to me so we will see. I want a DHBH and I'm just assuming that the PC is this years version. We'll see how it goes when I get my order! I think I'll be getting my Black Friday stuff and this order on the same day!

Anonymous said...

I ordered the GW in the black color. Do you suggest sizing down? I just ordered my TTS.

Anonymous said...

Woah, the GW are selling super fast on the Canadian site! The deep zin. looked nice at first, but reminded me too much of Barney. I ordered GWs in heathered black and inkwell. I have a GW in a size-down for me 2 and it's a little short on my 5'8 frame. I'm hoping a 4 will work.

Sandra said...

I like the run dash crop in the macro stripe black and soot?

Anonymous said...

It will be really sad if the PC is this year's DHBH - they are not even the similar! I did get a GW in deep zin since I have never seen it before (1-year deep addict) and I want to see what's the hype is all about. Had to order both a 8 and a 10 since I am in between sizes and do not want to miss out just in case I really like it but can't find another size.

Eric said...

Im hoping they have plenty of stock, would hate to see everyone wake up to "Your order has been canceled emails". People seem to be buying these like crazy...

I got the mens brisk bloom pace breakers and deep zinfandel, still waiting on dark camo :(

Anonymous said...

Are the Feel Good Pants True to Size? Like the Blogger, I have lost weight and now fit into a 6 in almost every item I've purchased in the last few months--but I want these to be comfortable. What do you suggest?

Anonymous said...

Call me crazy! I got all 4 GW's I have daughters & sisters to share with so I guess i can justify :) I also got the Dash crops in the fun micro stripe. LLA could you please give us a fit review on the sweats & what color you got! Thanks for all of your valuable insite.

Does the Hustle jacket have reflectivity this go round?

Does the Post Chaturanga PO run big? It looks so wide in the shoulders.

I just gave both my legs to Lululemon. All hail bum covering articles of clothing!!!!!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 11:09 pm - if they fit like the first time around they'll be a slim-fitting TTS

Anonymous said...

I woke up to go to the bathroom, it's the only reason I checked the site.

With the exception of the Post Chatarunga pullover, none of this appeals to me. I don't understand the hype, which is a good thing. The PC pullover can wait. I'll need to see it in person before I consider it.

Anonymous said...

I got the GW in white and inkwell and a Lux Scuba. I'm most excited about the Angel blue Free to Be bra if this means Angel is back. It may be my all time fave color!!

Anonymous said...

Decent upload... Had to resist so many items. I'm actually pretty good with passing on stuff ("Count to 5 then ask yourself if you REALLY need this" hahaha) but I got a GW in heathered white (surprised that as of 11:30PST most sizes/colours are still available! thought they'd be selling out way faster). I'm sad no coco pique WU were uploaded. Tomorrow hopefully!

Anonymous said...

I'm kind of curious to know how many of the GWs have ended up in the hands of resellers....

Anonymous said...

Will there be a WMTM tonight?
Love the grey & the raspberry live simply!

Anonymous said...

Like everyone else I order 2 GWs, one in black, one in deep zinfandel. I wore the heck out of my savasana wrap I purchased a couple years ago, so hoping these are similar?

Anonymous said...

I never size down because I like things baggy but I did in this. My normal 6 was puffy in the belly, where the pockets are. It is a great top. Better than the DHBH because it's not so hot and bulky.

Anonymous said...

Woohoo got the gratitude wrap! Can't wait to see what all the fuss is about, the deep zin color is so pretty!

Anonymous said...

I'm just waking up on the east coast = its 7:15 am here - and there are GWs in all colors and sizes except deep zin in size 4. If you missed out last night check again cause it was either a website issue or they restocked already.

I really like the grey passage sweater. Looks really nice and I could definitely wear it to work. I also like the post savasana pullover but will wait for future colors.

Would like the vertical stripes in a top but not on my crops - and all the reviews say they are sheer - big surprise.

Anonymous said...

LOL, the inseam on the Feel Good Pants says it's 13.5". I sent an e-mail to the GEC asking if they could revise this on the website. (I'm super-tall so can only buy pants if the inseam is pretty long - most of the new pants have been disappointing in this regard lately).
OK girls, this gratitude wrap better be all it's cracked up to be! :-) Expensive upload for me too - deep zin GW, a passage sweater, and a post-c pullover. I almost didn't get the latter two as I'm tired of neutrals, but ended up with the gray/black versions of both. I'll probably leave the tags on for a while, though, in the hope that some actual colors appear.

Anonymous said...

Will there be another upload tonight? I was hoping to see the brisk bloom items.

Anonymous said...

Argghhhhhh as much as I adore you lululemon! It's crazy that they would put most sought after items on one upload!!

Did you guys notice the CUFFINS On the gratitude wrap? I wonder if that's a misprint! I could not decide on color or size as I recall it being tight in the arms! I was trying not to get black as I always get black, now I'm not so sure! Wish i got black!

The beautiful hustle jacket made an appearance! Without CUFFINS! Oh well! I'm so happy I don't have to pay 400$ on eBay!

Anonymous said...

Anyone else see the teeniest glimmer of a grey and white striped top under the gratitude wrap (deep zin photo)?

I CAN'T DECIDE WHETHER TO GET ONE. I honestly don't think it would look very good on me (and kind of think they generally look like a cozy potato sack), but darn that Lulu hype machine does work and is making me want one...

Anonymous said...

Do you think Lulu will have an upload again tonight?
I can't believe how quickly the GW's have sold out!

Anonymous said...

lol! Same thing happened to me!! Hoping to get the DZ in the store and return the Inkwell when it gets here.

Anonymous said...

Ordered the black post chaturanga pullover. Looks perfect for in and out of the gym this winter. I hope it's cozy!

Anonymous said...

Am I the only one who likes the Run: Dash crop in the stripe?! Something about them is not right, but I can't look away. LOL

Anonymous said...

Well - bummer! I forgot to look in the middle of the night and missed out on the GWs.

However, I did get the Paris Pink CRB and Hustle Jacket - my DH has been saying he doesn't know what to get me for Christmas, so I will help him out. :) Can't wait!!

Anonymous said...

Got my Perfect Paris CRB in Florida, it is already bleeding. LLA, can you please let us know if yours bled too.
Got the RJP Crop from Yogasmoga in Caviar Grey and the Yogasmoga Sneak n Peak Bra in Caviar Grey/limelight. That combination looks HOT. Love the over 60% discount by them. Thank you for introducing us to yogasmoga.

Anonymous said...

Are the GW true to size or a size down item? I am generally between a 4-6 in tops, but mostly buy 6's. Ihowever, I bought a 4 in the DHBH last year. What do you suggest? Thanks for your advise!

RunLikeTheWind said...

Eh, initially I was excited to see the Paris CRB, but I think I want a raspberry one instead. I don't wear pink a lot, so I just need one.

JenO said...

I'm not really understanding all the hype around the GW... what is soooo amazing about this item? Just curious, I have never tried it on. From the pictures online it doesn't seem flattering to me..

Anonymous said...

I don't get the hype. The Gratitude Wrap makes the person look pregneant, on the other hand the passage sweater is sweet. I like the post chaturunga pull over but I think the collars are wayyyyyyyyy too big.
Based on the deal they are offering ($75 off for us), the quality of their product and the new colors, I am going with Yogasmoga's ballerina leggings in jodhpur blue and the yantra tank top in jodhpur blue/boyblue.
Jumped on that train before they run out of stuff like the last time.

luluFemom said...

I made a quick trip to the store yesterday to get the Post Chaturanga and, while I brought it home with me, I'm not ripping the tags off with excitement. Was actually thinking if the Deep Zin DHBH rumor was true, I'd exchange for that -- even though they're both bulky, something about the wide, snug band around the hip of the DHBH makes it more flattering on me than the PC. The kangaroo pocket doesn't quite lay right. It's definitely a size down item - I'm typically b/w 4-6 in tops and would've actually tried a 2 if they made one, which is unheard of for me.
Like so many of you, I also succumbed to the pull of the lulu vortex and ordered the GW (still all colors and sizes when I got up @ 5am EST). I was really wavering because I'm not convinced I'll love it and I HATE to bring online returns into the store, but the thought of missing out was too much for me. ;)

Miffy316 said...

Trying to order GW but seems like web is having an issue? I can't click any items... Is anybody else having the same issue? I am in US. This is frustrating!! I don't want to miss out!!!

Lauren said...

I can't even click on GW! Stupid lulu site.

Anonymous said...

Got up first thing this morning and had the white GW, Live Simply and Bow Scuba in my cart. Now, hours later, I've eliminated the GW (the style is not really 'me', and while I can see it being super comfy, I just can't bring myself to spend that much on something that I won't wear out of the house), then I got rid of the Live Simply because although it is sooo soft, it is pretty pricey for how thin the material is. Now, I'm left with the Bow Scuba. I like it because I've really wanted something in BB, and I don't have a suba yet... but it's just so darn short! So I probably won't end up getting anything from this upload :(

Anonymous said...

WOW how many people ordered the GW just because of the hype and thinking they were missing out. PRESSURE
That's interesting

Anonymous said...

Anyone else having trouble with lulu's site? It keeps timing out and won't load ANYTHING!

Anonymous said...

Sorry to say I broke down & got the GW in white & ink, then I had buyer's remorse wondering if the zinfandel was a better choice, so got that as well.

I am hopeful when they all arrive , I return at least one, if not two

Anonymous said...

Can anyone click on any of the links on the lulu site? I can only visit the site; I can't view any products. This is so annoying! Lulu - get a new server.

Anonymous said...

@8:02 AM, totally agree with you, the Ballerina leggings from yogasmoga look amazing and that johpur color is hot. Ordered them on friday, can't wait to wear them. They look perfect for inside and out.
Thank you for getting the $75 discount. Is that only good for one time or can I order another top/bottom combo and get the same discount. Do you know?

Anonymous said...

When are they going to FIX their WEBSITE.?? I've been on line shopping all morning with other retailers and no problem. They need to upgrade once and for all....

Anonymous said...

Lululemon always shows un-flattering online pics of the GW. I still enjoy my vintage GW. It's beautiful when left open or partially buttoned-up (not all the way to the top like the online pics).

Anonymous said...

Hey Lululemon, got tired of waiting around for you to fix your website, got tired of waiting for you to come up with colors which are not crazy, got tired of getting sheer pants and then new luon pants that are still sheer, got tired of bad service and bad GEC and have moved on to others such as Nike and yogasmoga. I value my hard earned money and will give it for QUALITY, FIT, COLOR and Excellent CS only.
Went with Adidas Ultimate fleece pants and as per your recommendation the Yogasmoga Ballerina leggings in Carbon 6/ Mossaic Grey, then to take advantage of the $75 deal also got the Yantra Tank in Grey Caviar / Crimson (HOT COMBO ALERT !!!!)

Anonymous said...

I didn't order out of hype. I have one from the last release that I have worn to death and need a new one. I personally love the GW and am glad Lulu brought the design back.

Anonymous said...

Amazing the GW is practically sold out in Canada but almost entirely available still in the US. I was really on the fence at 4am and ordered one anyway. I sort of wish I hadn't now.... $118 is just too much.

I also love that Passage sweater. But I don't do wool. I know I'm totally in the minority, but I wish Lulu would use other fabrics for sweaters without adding in the 5% cashmere. Or in winter, cotton would be nice. Bamboo is cozy. Oh well. I spend too much as it is!

Anonymous said...

thanks for posting that YS code. since FedEx lost my DZ speed tights, i've been trying to find a pretty pair of purple tights. i was able to grab the YS ones and a bra for $62! crazy!! now, that's a great sale!

the only thing is that they don't have tons of pockets since it's geared towards yoga. i'll live.

how do their leggings fit? their size chart seems smaller than lulu's.

Lauren said...

I also gave into the GW. My husband was standing over me as I bought two at 1:00 AM. He just shook his head......I do have to say that I wear my Savasana Wrap all the time when it gets cool here in Central Texas and it is my absolute favorite traveling companion. It is great for long flights and road trips. I must admit also that I am 25 weeks pregnant so I see it covering my belly quite nicely.

Anonymous said...

@8:56 AM - I wanted to do the same thing. Order another set from YogaSmoga, so called them and they asked me to just put in a separate order. Already Got the Ballerina Leggings in Jodhpur Blue and the Yantra Top. Now going for the Run Jump Play Crops in Violet Twilight (love the name) / Mosaic Grey and the Violet Twilight / Seattle Mist Tickle Me Tank.
I hope they don't run out of stock like the last time before I can get a third set :) since everyone here seems to be ordering from them.

Anonymous said...

@8:56 AM Called yogasmoga customer service number and they told me to just place a separate order.
YESSSSSSSSSSSS. Love their customer service, quality and definitely taking advantage of the amazing discount.

OT...if you order an item that says "online only", but it doesn't work out for you, can you still return it to the stores? Or do you you have to ship it back to them?

Lulu site goes down once again!!!!

The GW is so overated- I am sorry I don't get it at all.

@8:02 - I ordered a few things from YS - including the ballerina leggings and twistie tank. I put in separate orders to take advantage of the $75 code -- ha ha. I know its kinda sneaking it in but they didn't say anything - I think you are okay with putting in separate orders to get the discount multiple times!!

LLA any news on the lulu website?

Was able to nab a GW! looks like the site has crashed now.
@8.56am ref yogasmoga you can can put in multiple orders and get the $75 off on each top/bottom order.

The LLL website is now "taking a break". I mean that's better than screwing people that think they are buying something or double charging them or something... but still. Wtf. On Cyber Monday? You would think this brand didn't have shit tons of money flowing out of their asses.

Really? they crash on cyber Monday??

crystal said...

It's weird I couldn't get through on my PC but I was able to get through on my tablet? It seemed that the GW was restocked in all colors and sizes except the heathered black but then the whole stinkin site went down! Oh well hopefully they will restock items before going back up!

I definitely suggest sizing down! I have 14 (soon to be 17. Lol,) and I never reach for the few in my tts since they're too billowy and not fitted at all.... That being said some people prefer a more relaxed fit!

@11:15 AM all over the internet there are comments about the new perfect paris bleeding. I am going to wait till LLA washes hers and advises if it is bleeding or not. But to take advantage of Cyber Monday deals I went with Yoga Smoga and their tickled pink. I can't say no to more than 50% discount.

Thanks for the YS deal, LLA! I got the tippy toe legging in the black/pink combo with a matching Yantra tank in the pink color. Can't wait until they get here! What an awesome deal… better deal than lulu would ever offer.

Anonymous said...

First upload in a while that really got me excited, I couldn't resist the Scuba *Bow and the Namaste Tote in the new dot pattern. Wasn't sure about the GW initially, but I decided to hop on the bandwagon and try out the Heathered Inkwell one! I'm nervous for the upload with the Brisk Blossom print (whenever that may be)- I don't know if my wallet can take anymore!

ok - looks like lulu is back up but hanging and still slow for me. this is a complete joke. on cyber monday!
@ 11.49 yogasmoga is doing a cyber monday $75 off special of a top/bottom combo- they just uploaded some new styles and colors last week.
athleta has some good deals today as well.

Anonymous said...

@11:49 AM Yogasmoga is offering $75.00 off when you buy any top and any bottom. Plus you get 10 Smogi bucks. This is totalling to over 60% discount. You can also get the discount if you put in separate orders. So far, I've placed 3 orders. Would love to say that I am done with LULU but with their site down, I think LULU is pretty much done with me. Ah well, c'est la vie. I have started to prefer the quality and customer service from yogasmoga anyway.

Anonymous said...

@LAUREN - I agree. Yoga Smoga quality is much better as well and I am loving the $75 off deal. Definitely helps me "discover" the brand. Lulu is just stingy - they dont give us jack and their website is sh*t as well.

I am getting some Slimmie pants for my fat booty! :)

Anonymous said...

@JennyO - I order yogasmoga from Canada all the time - they are smart and they send their stuff to Canada by USPS and not fedex/ups so no additional tax. Sweet!

Also if you don't know they ship free to Canada!!

lauren said...

@11.49am the $75 code is the offer Yoga Smoga is running. You can check it out on their site www.yogasmoga.com - They ran a special for all of us Luluaddict fans. Use LLA75 code at check out - you will get a $75 off top and bottom pair.

Scroll down, LLA posted that a couple days ago.

@1:05 - lulu technology is crap just like their clothes. Not a single website I have been shopping at has crashed.

@12:07 am & others complaining about lulu site crashing. Yes i bet Split59, Yogasmoga, Athleta don't have problems on Cyber Monday uploads. They don't get nearly enough traffic at a given time that of LLL. Their buyers don't stay up late at night refreshing their sites anticipating new items. LLL buyers are a different breed. When was the last time did you set an alarm to wake you up in the middle of the night to check on What's New at Athleta? That's right, NEVER.
