Upload!

In the Flow Dress (only Canada) - like a long Swiftly tank for $88. I kind of like it but would wear it as a tunic, I think.





The Embody crops are back (in Canada only right now), in full on luon this time. These got pulled as part of the Pantsgate recall but I really loved the fit of the Inkwell version I tried on last year. The color combos in these crops give us the latest palette: Secret Garden print, Pow Pink Light, Heathered Medium Gray, Pretty Purple, Pipe Dream Blue, and Clear Mint. We should also add Pigment Blue into the palette since it's park of the swim line and other items.

The swim line showed up tonight, as promised. The designs are identical to last year's. All of this is a pass for me. I've been buying my bathing suits at Athleta for the last couple of years.

Pigment Pace Queen Tights.

New Ebb and Flow racerbacks were uploaded. 

New Live Natural cotton crops in Black/Heathered Cadet Blue Dip Dye. I ordered these. (Update - hopefully I'll get them since they were gone by 10:19 - wow!)


I also ordered the new Antidote Cool Racerback. I already have Heathered Tree Frog and Heathered Split Pea so this might be going back. I'll have to see how I like it when it gets here.

Did you order anything?

I thought the WAFS wunder unders would be uploaded tonight, but nope. No tech mesh tights for canada either. So I got nothing...

Managed to get the Live Natural crops but holy smokes they were gone fast. I ordered within 2 minutes of the upload and they were sold out a few minutes later!

Snapped up sz 4 Live Natural pants in the ombré black to cadet blue! Can't wait!
Didn't see Embody crops-were these uploaded to US site?

LuluAddict said...

Embodys were on Canadian side only.

I passed on the whole upload. I already have the dip dye cotton crops in the other color so figured I don't need both--though they're probably the only thing that caught my eye. And Antidote is a neat color, but on a pale red head I think it will look awful.

Grabbed the new live natural crop, so excited!

I got size 4 live natural crops in the 2 minutes they were available. I'm happy because I love these (I have the gray ones), but am appalled how quickly they sold out for anyone else who may have wanted them.

Tornadogirl said...

I managed to score me the Antidote CRB and the Clear Mint L/S Swiftly. Was hoping for the Live Natural Crops but ah, no, that wasn't going to happen as the website kept crashing!

P.S. Anonymous 10:17 - I'm a very pale redhead and colours like Antidote look AWESOME on me...I always get compliments when I wear a colour like that! ;)

Missed the live natural crops again!! Can't believe my luck. If anyone sees a 4 in a local store, please let me know. Thank you!

LuluAddict said...

The Live Naturals were all gone by 10:19 pm. I checked out at 9:47 pm so hoping my order was early enough and went through.

Anyone have website issues? I'm reading Canadians got error messages and spinning wheels.

yogibabe said...

Yay! Live Natural Crop within 3 mins of upload, (now sold out!). I missed out on the last batch. Happy tonight! And the Sun Salutation in camo. :)

Anonymous said...

I ordered size 4 live naturals and was wondering if anyone knows why there is no size 2. Does that mean that the size 4's run really small? I recently got a size 4 in the roll down wunder under crops and they fit me perfectly so I hope these run similar in size.

Anonymous said...

New items wouldn't load for me until about 12:23 central time, even though I kept hitting refresh on my browser. Too late for the live natural crops. Oh well. I got the other dip dye color when it was loaded a couple of weeks ago.

Anonymous said...

Got live naturals as last time I was kinda contemplating and they were all gone and then people really loved them. So, let's see why:)

They sold out within 5-10 minutes on Canadian side. I had no problems checking out, but I acted fast.

Already got a FTB wild bra I. Black camo from our edmonton store last week. Loving it.

Wish Canada had tech mesh and black camo WUP, but well...

LD said...

Nothing tonight. Go figure since I have a couple gift cards. Live naturals looked tempting but I'm not sure how much use I would have gotten out of the ombre. Fun watching them sell out!

Anonymous said...

Will the live natural crops be in stores? I'd like a second chance at snagging a pair. So frustrated they sell out so quickly.

Tornadogirl said...

Yes, the Canadian website was more frustrating than usual as it kept freezing up and kicking out my shopping bag! Had to check out on the french side again....

Anonimouse said...

What a freakin' gong show, it won't even let me select an item to put in my cart!

LuluAddict said...

I bought the gray/soot Live Naturals in the store so they should be coming to the stores.

Anonymous said...

I'm confused - i kept pressing refresh but no new uploads from 1 EST till 1:30 EST when it finally uploaded but all the Live Natural Crops were sold out. I think this must mean I couldn't access the upload at first - any idea why? That's the only thing that caught my eye. Really tired of this petite flour stuff.

Anonymous said...

Same website issues that I've been having for months. Takes 10 minutes to log in to my account (have tried on various devices over the last month, always the same no matter what time of day), then I can only view the upload on Canada French site, which is for some reason painfully slow to load (and I don't speak French, so it's a lot of guessing...can't read the product details, etc.), then as you say, I get spinning wheels on checkout. I was first able to see the upload at 10:40 MST on the French side, and it took me 20 minutes to put a CRB and wunder under crops in my basket and check out. A full 40 minutes later I was able to view the upload on the English site. Brutal. I don't complain about much when it comes to Lululemon, not the shipping disaster of a couple weeks ago, not the sheer pants or inconsistent sizing...but damn it chaps my butt when I have to fight with their website for 20-40 minutes just to place an order!

Got Sz 4 Live Natural Crops Black-Cadet + went ahead and added in the solid black (NO CAMO!) No Limits Tank I've been thinking about for past week, Sz 4. Seems all the No Limits tank colors in Sz 4 are gone except Blk & the Blk/Camo...

Jessie77 said...

got the live natural crops (assuming it went through this time), sun salutation pants and no limits tank in camo. Did anyone else have problems with the page not showing the new stuff when you refreshed?

Anonymous said...

I'm ordered from Ontario at 1:20am...I got the antidote CRB and FTBW bra (antidote/tonka stripe). The live natural crops were already gone so hopefully these will be in the store this week so I can grab them there :) Just curious if anyone knows when the Walden Galleria LLL location will be opening in Buffalo NY?? I'm going there May 3rd and was hoping it will be open by then. Mall site and LLL site both say "coming soon". Goodnight Lulu world :)

@ anon 10:39 pm - I never log into my account to make an order. I always seem to have issues when I try to log in.

I bought the pink/blue/black board balance swim top. I have a very green BB top from last year and love it - the most comfy swim top, and has decent coverage for bustier gals.

Anonymous said...

I bought a swimsuit. (am I going to regret this). I went for the floral top(thats what I'm calling it, I hate the name secret garden(vajayjay)), and then just black bottom. I really was hoping for some new crops, except I need new WU like I need a hole in the head. not too much damage done tonight.

Does anyone know if the spring break away shorts fit tts??

Anonymous said...

@ 10:39 sounds very weird. Have you cleared all you history, cookies etc.? If that was my on-line shopping experieince with anyone, I would never tolerate it. I would just give up.

As for logging in...I always log in to my account first, throw things in my basket, and then check out. Never a problem. I just ordered speed shorts in the grey last week and no problem. I check out with my credit card too, never pay pal.

I don't stay up for uploads though, so haven't been in that situation. I'd never tolerate that either.

Anonymous said...

In the flow dress - did it come in black and sell out? I'd like to get it but in a dark colour.

Anonymous said...

Nada for me, most of the things up there seemed to be crops (which I don't wear), swimsuits (which I don't need), and tanks (none of which colors I liked). Phew! The cadet blue/lullaby palette was expensive for me so happy to take a break. :-) Was hoping to see some cute summer-weight short-sleeved shirts... I hope they're still coming.

Anonymous said...

I got a coastal om trinagle bikini top & matching coatal om bikini bottoms.

I am disappointed that Canada still did not have the lullaby ls swiftly! Hopefully it will be in stores this week.

Focus said...

Totally easy last night....no spinning wheel...fast! I'm
In the US.

I never log in because I pay with PAYPAL it's super fast!! Also I'm now Unchecking that box in the very last area just about receiving email,from LLL. This was a tip from another addict and it seems to make it go faster.

The Facetious Librarian said...

Annoyed the Live Natural pants sold out so quickly, especially considering as of 12:23am (Central time - 10:23p Pacific) the "What's New" page wasn't even updated. I had to go to each individual page ("tanks", "bottoms", etc.) to search for the new items.

Ended up buying the lullaby Power Y tank I had been waiting for, and decided to try the Sun Salutation pants.

Anna said...

I had major issues on the Canadian website last night - couldn't even seen the upload on the English side until an hour or so in. I used the French side and it was visible right away - though the Live natural crops were gone by about 10:55MST. Ten minutes - crazy. I only grabbed one of the dresses/tunics to try. Missed that in angel blue, too, as it was gone in about 20 minutes. Lots of spinning wheels and out of stock messages, that went away on reload.

Anonymous said...

@ Anon 10:44. An Ed at the Buffalo showroom recently told me the Walden Galleria location is opening in May, but didn't know the exact date yet. You may be in luck!

Anonymous said...

Nothing for me...yet. So did the upload time change back to the normal time of 9:45 (Pacific) again?

Jiji said...

Nothing for me. I totally missed out on the upload! I wanted the ombré crops since I missed out on the first one. Oh well... One less crops for me. ;-)

Stephanie said...

That was my experience too. Frustrating!

Deezee007 said...

Nothing for me, easy pass on everything.

OT: I have a pair of reversible WUC in Porcelain Blue/Black, CRB Porcelain Blue, WAFS April (2012) CRB, and a really cute tech top (forget the name) in Power Purple and Lavender Dusk that I'd like to sell.
All a size 8 and all worn once. I will entertain any offer, just want my things to go a good Lulu home. Pics provided upon request.
Please email me @ dianezee17@gmail.com

stylista diva said...

Missed out on the Live Natural crops and the In the Flow dress apparently :( but I did get my fatigue WUC & the Free to be wild I wanted. I'll check in store today & tomorrow to see if we get the dress in. I'm surprised we got the dress Canada side! *For fit in the cotton crops if you're in between sizes, I suggest sizing down. I usually get a 6 in most bottoms, but measurement wise I'm between a 4-6. I found the cotton crops totally bagged out after wearing them once. I went with a 4 this time around.

Anonymous said...

I got the antidote crb... Then I went back an ordered the live natural crops. I have the solid heathered black so if I don't like these then I can sell or return them but I love the fit. I normally wear a 6 and the 6 in these was a little right so I sized up for comfort. I don't know if ppl are sizing up but I was told in store that a lot of ppl sized up.

Anonymous said...

I'm on the US side and kept checking the website on my iphone after 9:45PST and it didn't show up - ever. Wound up getting on my computer at 10:30pm after seeing LLA's Upload post and it showed up just fine. But ombre crops sold out :-(( they're beautiful. And cotton. Poo. 3 hours from a store so doubtful I'll own these. Such is life. Surprised my satellite internet was even working then since we got a lot of snow!

Since I missed the crops, I ordered the heathered black high low WUP cotton and the camo pants with pockets - hope they fit and I don't have to return them! Wish Lulu would get on Shoprunner or something so I didn't have to pay return shipping....a city girl in the sticks can dream can't she?

Happy April Fools Day everyone!!

OT question: how do you determine the size of a CRB?

Anonymous said...

Ordered the ebb to street (or ebb and flow?) pants.. I was bummed I missed them the first time around, and the camo FTBW. I was not interested in that bra at all until I saw someone wearing it layered under a sort of strappy black dress. I thought it looked great as edgy streetwear; i do not like it under a CRB or for yoga/workout wear though.
The embody crops were an easy pass for me - no thanks to retro colour blocking.
I'm super curious about the dress/tunic but being short and busty that neckline looks like a dealbreaker.

Erinna said...

The dresses came only 2 colors: blue and grey, as I am pretty sure, no black YET. I was there early getting my blue one when everything (eg. Live Nature Crops in all sizes) just showed up.

Anonymous said...

Very frustrated as the closest store for me is 120 miles away. I called them and they've never even heard of Live Natural Crops. The educator on the phone told me I'm confusing them with Athleta, "this is LU-LU-LEMON AthleTICA!" So here I am calling stores all over the US where I have relatives in hopes I can find these crops, and those stores didn't get any in and never got any the last time they came out. I am wondering if only really big cities get those crops in? I'm putting out a request for any angels who happen to come across a Live Natural in the black/cadet dip dye in a size 4, please let me know! Thank you in advance.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone have any intel on if/when there will be any Beachscape Multi WUCs coming out?? It's weird to think that they only came out with 4 pieces in the print and a headband! How about some Speed Shorts or Boogie Shorts in the print?! I feel like they've totally been slacking on Boogie Shorts lately! This smorgasbord of a color palette is crazy! What happened to the days of a 4-5 color palette, with multiple pieces in those colors? Now, it's all kinds of random pieces in all kinds of random colors! It's like the designers have ADD!

Anonymous said...

Totally OT, but the new banner model is from BC (aka birthplace of lulu). Obvs the photo shoot was not done here but I'm a bit disappointed her hometown isn't recognized! It is always a point of pride to see Canadian athletes get some press, especially female surfers (she is incredibly talented!). The town of Tofino deserves a mention, too, as it is a MECCA for surf and yoga.


Angelica Teaupa said...

I ordered the Sun Salutation pants in camo. I haven't been too successful with my attempts to purchase LLL pants (I'm very much an LLL newbie), since so far 6s have been a touch too big and the 4s have been slightly sheer with bendover testing. I like the idea of the gigantic pockets and the way the seams look. I'm allotting myself just one new pair of tights this month, so it is going to be between these and the Athleta Chaturangas in Paisley. Crossing my fingers that at least one of them works!

Anonymous said...

I just picked up a lakeside singlet for hubby. I was intrigued by the ombre crops but I already have the grey/soot ones and I like those better because they have a better contrast. Cadet and black are too similar.

Still it's crazy how fast they sold out. Lulu should do something about people buying 10 in every size.... "I'm buying it for my daughter's team" what a crock!

Anonymous said...

I didn't bite on the bikinis last year because everyone was bitching how awful they were and they sold out in less than 24 hours. LOL this time I decided to be smarter and instead of thinking about it, I did it and bought the triangular bikini top and matching bottoms in the floral print. very cute!!! :)

Anonymous said...

Just the FTB wild in Antidote, used my $25 free from Lulu gift card so it only cost me $26 :)
I would have gotten the Ombre crops but sold out by the time I could load/view the new stuff!
Oh I knew those In the flow cadet blue crops were different from that photo we saw earlier, they are PATTERN. COudlnt figure out which crops they were before last night :)

Anonymous said...

OK, I actually have to vent a little. I received my product info email from LL @ 6:38am and already the In the flow dress was off the Canadian website (I assume sold out). This is frustrating.

kathy said...

I was surprised to see WAFS green WUC in 6 for few seconds and ordered them, also saw Milky way for a second too. I wonder if they figured out some of their shipping/ordering problems and ended up with extra stock. Or maybe they cut people off from buying too many, wishful thinking.

Anonymous said...

The two stores in Wisconsin where I live never got the beachscape wu or the ombre live naturals so unfortunately it's so frustrating that the option to purchase these items isn't there when they sell out so fast! Oh well, continuing to save money...

AZLuluFan said...

I caught the upload when first went live and snagged a pair of Live Natural crops. When I returned to the What's New page it was back to last week's load. Like they were catching up with the initial rush and trying to control the flow of new order requests. The new upload page did return until 10:20, without the Live Natural crops.

Anonymous said...

Managed to get my hands on a pair of Live Naturally crops, Power Y in Lullaby, Heathered Black Ebb to Street Pants, CRB in Antidote (couldn't resist) and the cute Secret Garden swim top! Not sure about the ombre (seems off trend) but I do like the idea of the cotton and small lulu details that make these pieces special. Everything else I am beyond thrilled about. We shall see.

Anonymous said...

I would love a pair of live natural crops in a solid - the ombre looks weird to me, like it's pre-faded. I wouldn't get nearly as much use as a solid color but I really love the design of them. Considering how fast the ombres sold out (ridiculous actually), I'd think they'd make many more colors. We'll see...

I was also ready to spend money on a bikini but the designs are so ugly!! They don't even look good on the models so I know they would look bad on me lol. I hate the tassels, who wants extra stuff on a bathing suit? And the cuts just don't seem flattering. Anyone have any recs for places to buy a cute, sporty but not too sporty bathing suit? Athleta has some ok options but most are a bit too mature looking for me.

I debated the tuck and flow tank, but would like to try it on in the store first. I have a few tshirts with the flowy midsection that aren't very flattering- they make me look pregnant. I work too hard in CF to want to look bigger than I actually am, but I do like the comfort of shirts that aren't skin tight.

Thankfully for my wallet I am not a fan of the majority of this color pallete and the new floral print is gross. The only thing I am really wishing for are some non-pj looking (no checks, gingham or polka dot please) speed shorts. I missed the gray ones a few weeks back & have been bummed about that.

Anonymous said...

Thank you!! My fingers are crossed :) I know there's a show room there too but I really don't know what the difference is (???) I know it's only open 4 days a week. I'm surrounded by Lulu's in ON but it's nice to see different locations in different places :)

Anonymous said...

Can anyone comment on the fit of the Ebb & Flow tank? I saw it in store yesterday and it seemed big (the 6 looked wider than the CRB in the same size). They didn't have anything smaller in stock.

Anonymous said...

Hi LLA!
I was just wondering if you could possibly post a post about the lulu reusable totes! I know i have like 7 different ones right now .. but i was wondering if you could make a post so us ladies could upload our own collections in the comments and see all the other bags out there (:

Emily said...

I know this is nothing new and I didn't even really want anything on this upload, but it's ridiculously unfair that those of us that live on the East Coast would have to stay up until 1:45am in order to have a chance at items like the Live Natural Crops or the new dress. Especially for items that are online only like the dress. Why can't the upload be at like 9am Vancouver time?

sophia said...

i got the coastal om triangle top in the floral. not a fan of the floral print on other items, but think it's cute and trendy for a bathing suit. plus, since the print has black in it, makes it easy to pair with a bottom. LOVE my coastal om top i got last year - just the perfect fit, and feels very secure, unlike most string tops. got the multi-color pop orange one though, and no matching bottoms, which has made it really hard to wear it - can't seem to find bottoms to go with! so excited to have an easier-to-match top this year.

Anonymous said...

I ordered the antidote CRB, don't have anything like it and can't wait to pair it with just about anything! Think I have too many CRBs now though...

OT, returned my flip your dog top the other day because it skewed after one wash even before I got a chance to wear it. Sigh. I really really liked it and was looking forward so much to wearing it, so it's so disappointing to have to return it. Are there some flip your dog tops out there which do NOT skew after washing? Don't know whether to take a chance on another one...The store was great though, and refunded me the $68 without any questions. (Thanks LLA for sharing your own experience regarding top and refund because I would never have thought to bring it in after I took the tags off and washed it, and just lived with it bitterly :P)

Was at Santana Row, CA store and no black or cadet blue WAFS WUP/WUC there. Just letting you know to save you the drive. No Live Natural cotton crops either, which I didn't want anyways. The Ebb and Flow pants, textured crops, and shorts were in. So was the Live Your Om hoodie (ie Ewok cape). The periwinkle blue solid/stripe Vinyasa Scarf was displayed. But I really wanted the black and cadet blue WAFS WUP or WUC, so nothing for me.

So if these are the new spring colors, I guess we're not getting Bordeaux Drama, which I've been waiting for. Makes sense that only Australia is getting it because it seems more fall-like though.

I passed on a lot this upload. I don't like crops all that much, and I already have too many bathing suits, but I did order the Sun Salutation Pant in black camo and cadet blue. I did see the ombre crops at my local store, but I passed on them. I also saw the front racerback in the store, and it just looks like the model has it on backwards. The rose print is too much for me, but I do think it is flattering on the bathing suit. On another topic, my March 17th order of the beachscape WUP, the Milky Way WUP, and the green Tech Tights still hasn't arrived. I got a notice from LLL that it had been shipped to a wrong address and was being returned to the warehouse, and then it would be shipped to me again after they check the contents for damage. Has anyone else had this happen. I honestly don't know how that could have happened. It's definitely frustrating.

East Coast Canada store had all 3 In The Flow Dresses - from this morning - shocking! Goes to size 10. Turquoise (whatever the correct color code is), light heathered grey, and charcoal - which I assume is black but like in swiftly's black is actually charcoal. AND Post Savasana sweaters, including black and light soot-ish along with the almond striped we've seen.
