Fatigue "Camo" Wunder Under Pants on Website Were Really Pineapple Printed WUP


Thanks to Ms. P. and Ms. T. for the photos.
People who ordered the "Fatigue Camo" Wunder Under Pant from Monday's upload got a surprise in the mail. Instead of camo WUP they got new full on luon "Printed" Wunder Under pants with a greenish pineapple motif. The website had the wrong photo and I have to say I did notice that the photo on the website was of the larger retro camo rather than the more subtle Savasana 20 cm camo print. If it's any consolation to the people who ordered these, I don't think Fatigue Savasana Camo print Wunder Unders exist. I'm pretty sure the only kind of green camo Wunder Under Pants that have been spotted in stores are the older Wren Retro Camo that is polyester and not the new denim luon. According to your comments, lululemon is offering $25 "we're sorry" gift cards and free return shipping.

LMAO!!! Imagine all the ebay resellers got stuck with pineapples

Bwhahaha! I didn't even think about that,Anon@6:56. That would be epic awesomeness! I think the print looks like someone took a stencil and painted it on. Remember when stenciling was big in home d├ęcor? LOL!

Is this a joke? Why is LLL making pineapple pants!?!? That is the burning question I am asking, rather than how the mix up happened. Very Carmen Miranda.

I predict the pineapples will become a collector's item!

Lol, if some people like them they might actually got for a lot of $$$ on eBay due to being "rare".

Fatigue green wunder under pants do exist. They were one of the first camo products that came out. There were very few of them.

WOW - I have no words.

LLA do you think this was really an accident or did they plan it to get back at the ebayers? Why on earth would they ever put pineapples on pants?

i read on another blog some people liked these - not for me. love your blog lla!! i want to say something and i hope my head is not bitten off... i think it's sort of "played out" to keep making fun and taking jabs at ebay resellers (i'm not one) but at the same time, it puts out such negative energy - maybe the resellers are out of work and this is there job now, you never know what's going on in someone's life, since we are not living it. yes, i'm frustrated if something i want sells out - but i keep in mind, ok, i have the ability to wake up, shop on-line and afford more yoga/work out clothes (of which i have waaay too many). also, when i'm tired of my lulu or haven't worn things i thought i had to have i list them on ebay and i'm grateful for a vehicle that allows me to recoup some if not more than what i've paid for something. it sounds mean and petty to keep picking on ebay resellers. hopefully everyone can return the pants if they don't want them

So that's why I got an e-card from Lulu yesterday. Mine haven't arrived yet so I had no idea what "We're sorry about your WUPs" meant. I am still not sure if this means they're sorry for the mistake or they're sorry they ever made the pineapple monstrosity.

@ anon 4:15 am - Nobody cares about people reselling their own lululemon clothes or something they missed the return window on. What people do care about is the ebayer who has 6 pairs of the brand new hot item straight from the upload that they marked up by $100, $200 or more. THAT is the ebayer they are bitching about. The great majority of hardcore lulu fans sell their own lululemon items all the time, it's how we fund our new lululemon clothes. If you are sitting on a pair of Quiet Stripe WUCs and are asking $400 for them, more power to you. If you have six NWT camo Rise and Shine jackets and asking $550 for each of those, well, you deserve all the dastardly thoughts flowing your way.

Were they uploaded to the US site? I didn't even see them! Good thing, but do you have any try on pics?

Ashton said...

I'm so happy to have read this!! Haha... I just opened my package and saw pineapples!! PINEAPPLES!?!?!? Really?!?!?! Why the heck would they even think of making pants with stencilled pineapples on them?! Dear God!! I wouldn't even pay $5 for these horrendous things!! Back they go!!

Well said, LLA!

Oh wow, I REALLY thought that this was some sort of belated April Fools joke. I saw it mentioned in the other thread that someone received an apology from LLL and a gift card. I still thought it a joke, because, sorry come again? Pineapples? Like others, I have no words. In no way is this cool, stylish, collectors item etc.

@ 9:52 PM, people are aware of that. When these showed up "again", people who ordered were happy to have scored them. I saw them that morning but there was only a size 2 left. I would have ordered size 4 but even with a gift card, I'm happy not to have been caught in this mishap.

@ LLA 7:19, fully on point and agree.

Secret Garden print...I just received a product notice from LLL Eaton Centre that they have the Pace Queen Tight in the Secret Garden print. Is that old news? I know the Inspire crops were released in the SG print and sold out on-line immediately this week.

it's anon @4:15, i'm sorry, i shouldn't have said anything... yes i understand who the "dastardly thoughts" are targeting, i just thought in general it's better (mentally and physically) to not be negative. i understand, it's great to resell or mark up older 1 off hot items, but to buy multiples and resell is not, i completely get it, i just thought, maybe it was time to stop giving energy (of any kind) to things like that. i'm sorry for speaking out, i love your blog and will continue to admire and enjoy the post!

I don't even have an Ebay acct and give my used Lulu or non returnable lulu's to either my younger sister or gift them to friends.

I agree with you. Why do some people waste time complaining about Ebay resellers?? who cares they grab up sizes (sometimes it's a blessing in disguise and saves me $) and sell them for $500 on Ebay? Everyone has the ability to stay up or get up super early and buy what they crave on Lulu. It's so weird people are so concerened about what others are doing. I agree- who knows what the personal reasons are for reselling? Most likely it's to pay bills, take care of their family, laid off, losing their home, etc. Lets discuss what's really important and that is our love of Lulu and the questions and assistance we may need from great and honest community such as this about produts. As soon as I see the word "Ebay" in a comment, I don't even bother finish reading that post.

Pace queen secret garden came out monday before last and sold out immediately as well!!

Every time selling on ebay is mentioned here, two more ebay resellers pop up. You are literally pointing the way. Just saying.

Anonymous said...

I dunno now. Maybe they are trying to flush out ebay offenders by taking the pic as camo. It would not surprise me. I think it's obvious these pineapple pants have no appeal.

even though a pineapple is a symbol of hospitality.

If customers are receiving $25 e-gift cards then so are the snappy ebay sellers.........

Anonymous said...

@ 7:56 PM, so you assume (unless you work for LLL). Perhaps if someone purchased multiples of the same size(s) they were eliminated from a gift card, free return, and an apology.

I actually think the pineapple pa ts are cute and qwerky! If anyone has a size 6 they'd like to off load I'd snap them up :) mjede302@gmail.com if anyone is interested in selling them!

I thought I was the only one lol, I love them
