Love pink zing- May have to get something in that color. Pink shell is one of my favorite colors. OT- I just got my macro micro stripe inspires in the mail today and I think they fit a bit snug compared to my two other pairs of inspires. I'm afraid they'll be a bit sheer, although in the mirror they seem to be ok. Anyone else think this?
My store got the zing pink power Y's this week and the color looked fab in real life. Probly my fave lulu pink. I wish I had waited on my new Paris perfection power Y I just bought, and gotten this instead.
Hi Lulu Addict!I've been out of the LuLu-Loop for awhile with a baby who never sleeps! lol. I spotted the Base Runner Half Zip on a girl in the mall and have searched all 3 Lulus near me (us) and they don't have any in my size, or online. I looked through your old posts and there seemed to be a lot of colors. Do you know is this kind of a regular style now? Do I have a hope of finding this again sometime (soon?) Hoping...Thanks!xx Viv
As soon as something I had my eye on starts to sell out I just have to have it!! Horrible Lululemon addiction
Hi Lulu addict - do you think in a flash bra will come out with new colors? Do you expect it to be in WMTM?
Joie de Viv - San Clemente showroom has lots of base runner 1/2 zips check it out!
San Clemente Showroom has 1/2 zips.. Black pique too!!
I saw the zing pink power Y's in the store and got the astro shorts in that color. Looooove it! I might cave and get the power Y since Lulu seems to be holding out on solid color CRBs :/
Went to the store today to return a few items before the 1/12 deadline. I had a few items that I didn't love (calm and cozy pants, knit scarf, black Runday crop). I also had a WUC parallel black white stripe size 4 that I almost returned. But then I thought to myself.... Is there a nutty LuluAddict on this blog that would love to have these. Let me know with your email if you would like to buy them from me. I would only charge the crops, taxes and shipping fee. They are brand new. I got a size 2 instead that I am keeping. My last day to return 1/12. Let me know. Before 1/12/14,
I felt the same regarding the inspires, I have 10 pairs and these feel a touch snug and thin:/ all are size 4. They are not the nicest feeling Luxtreme IMO.
OT - just watched last nights episode of Parenthood, in a scene at an elementary school three out of four women in a group talking we're wearing lulu jackets. One inkwell scuba, one cornflower dance and not sure of the last one, it was purple.
OT-I have to write about my horrible experience in Lululemon, Union Square (NYC). I finally received my special price scuba I got online. I got the SE one but I didn’t like it because of the velvet lining. It doesn’t stretch and it scratches my hands when I put them in the pockets. Because I work near Union Sq, I went there to return it. Please note it was not a Final Sale item, it was just bought at a special price. The sales associate had to be the meanest and rudest person there. I went t the counter and told her my problems with the hoodie. She looks at the paper that Lulu usually sends with our packages and told me they don’t accept these as receipts anymore, that I need another form of proof, like an email receipt or something. The first thing that popped into my head was “wtf? This has never happened to me before. Are you lying to me?” So I took out my phone and showed her the email. She scrolled down the entire email and just approved my proof, I guess. Then a minute later she tells me she cannot return this for me because it is a marked down item and it is considered final sale. I said that’s not right because I called GEC and they said it is something that can still be returned as long as my tags are still there and this hoodie went back on original price. BUT SHE KEPT INSISTING SHE WILL NOT RETURN IT FOR ME BECAUSE IT IS FINAL SALE. WTF!!! I was fuming at this point because she said it in the most unapologetic way ever and I basically wasted my lunch break arguing with her. So I called the SoHo store to see if they were like that too, if maybe the sales associate wasn’t lying. Turns out SoHo said it was absolutely no problem if I wanted to return my item. They didn’t even ask for my email receipt as proof. ISN’T THAT INSANE? I’m NEVER giving Union Sq my money as their commission ever again.
Winter outerwear is starting to get marked down. Grabbed a Post Chaturunga and a FTB Wild in the new power purple.
is black Free to Be Wild bra in store yet? I don't think they were ever released online. And I have too many purple bras already.
How does zing pink compare to bleached coral? They look a little similar to me in these photos. More pink? I do love it though :)
This is off topic but I just noticed a bunch of Passage Sweaters appeared on the Cdn site in all three colours in various sizes. I'm guessing returns from Christmas....which to me indicates that the reviews on the site are right which say the fit is meh/weird and people are finding holes in the material.That being said, I'm still slightly tempted ;) Anyone buy it and really love it??
Wow that runday fleece is not popular. It's sitting in Loot in full sizes and colors. I love, love, love that new pink! I hope my crappy showroom gets something in with that color. Anyone know how long it takes Lulu to turn a showroom into a full store?As always, thanks for all the work on the blog LLA. :)
@SB, did you find a buyer for the parallel stripe WUC sz 4? I'm interested! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tried on the free to be wild in power purple (love this colour!) and really was surprised that I liked the fit! I was expecting back fat galore but it was pretty flattering. Looks cute under a lot of tanks and flip your dog. Didn't buy just yet cuz I'm going on vacay and picked up my first pair on dance studio pants in deep zin. Couldn't afford to buy everything I wanted so we'll see if this bra is still available when I get back.
SB: I would love your parallel stripe WUCs and I am conveniently a size 4 :-)Send me an email with your info - kkeenca (at) gmailKaty
I couldn't figure out the pink on the silver spoon free to be wild - aha zing pink. Got the power y tank today in zing pink. Love it...
@ anna - yeah, that was incorrect. I returned one of my bam scubas with the packaged receipt no problem.
10:40am----I believe showrooms are typically around for 2 years or so before they open an official store
@ Anon 1/10/14 at 9:34 AM:My store got black FTB Wild a week ago. Purple was new this week.@ Anon 1/10/14 at 10:40 AM:Usually takes about a year for showrooms to become full-blown stores.
@Emily- I have the passage sweater in the black/white, and I absolutely LOVE it! So soft and warm and looks super chic with skinny jeans or black wunder unders with boots. I have worn it multiple times and it has held up beautifully. hth :)
I would complain about the clerk in union sq. I like to ask for the person's name I am dealing with as well. Sometimes, they get a bit nicer if they realize you are going to escalate the issue and if nothing else you have a name to go with your complaint. Likewise, I have taken to reporting great customer service when it is given. The people that go the extra step deserve accolades.
@ anna - I live in NYC too and have had similar issues at various stores there...some say they need an email print out, some say they need the packing slip, etc. Now when I return things I always bring the packing slip, an online print-out and a copy of my delivery confirmation because they always "conveniently" forget that it takes a full seven days to receive my order so sometimes they will look at the order date and say I am passed the two week return window. I have point out to them that lulu's return policy is two weeks from the delivery date! So annoying!! I love lulu but the one thing I hate is how the educators treat you when you return things.
@ anna - that is outrageous!! i mean seriously, OMG!!! i'm working at lulu right now (just seasonal) b/c i love it so much and getting the employee discount is not bad at all!! i would contact the GEC and tell them what happened, that store should be dinged for that!! and you are right the scuba was not final sale it was a special price and is completely returnable. we got lots of returns in store - i am floored at your experience - i mean WOW!!! and i have heard nothing about not accepting the receipt that comes with your mail order as proof of purchase, isn't that by def what that is - lulu is providing proof of purchase - wow!
Runaway fleece was on md to $49 at my store! Bought the ivivva one otherwise I probably would have grabbed one.
@ Anna, what a hassle and who needs such a toxic experience. I'd definitely report it. Just give the date and time even if you don't have the employee name. They can narrow it down. She needs to learn a lesson the hard way. I agree with you on the principle of not shopping at that location anymore.
Size 4 parallel stripe WUC:@Anon 11:13am.. I'll email you regarding payment and shipping info.@KKeenCa - if the transaction does not work out above, I will contact you.
@SB: Thanks! I'll keep my eye out (and my fingers crossed)
