Upload!

Only Canada got the Cashew WAFS CRB

Heathered Cashew Stroll Stripe CRB

Petite Fleur - These came in a 12 (shocker!)

Secret Garden CRB

These came in a 12, too. I am really surprised.
Pigment Blue Inspires
Only Canada got the cap.
Pow Pink Light CRB
I'm not sure how everyone felt about tonight's upload. If you like Secret Garden you were super happy. I was very tempted to order the wild Secret Garden Inspires but decided to wait until I see them in the store to try them on. They are pretty crazy. I did order the Petite Fleur Inspires, though, since I liked the print in the WUC but didn't love the warm denim luon. I was very surprised to see both these prints offered in a size 12. More often than not, print Inspires have stopped at a size ten.  Canada got a Cashew Wee Are From Space Cool Racerback and a Wee Space Silver Faster than the Wind run cap. I also ordered the Pow Pink Light Cool Racerback even though I already have a Pow CRB in my closet. I have a bunch of hot pink CRBs so Pow Pink Light might be going back.

Did you get anything tonight?

i'm so not a fan of the secret garden...it looks like grandma's cottage curtains turned to $100 pants! come on ppl don't do it...lol i'm interested in the tone it tank though. waiting around for better colours!

Nada. I'm interested in the WAFS Cashew CRB but don't have the funds till Thursday. Will pop back then to get it online if its still there :)
I would love the pink ruches LS swiftly scoop neck but that is too darn expensive for a non runner like myself!

ordered too much! typ! I usually order more than I want just to make sure I can try on and see since I don't live near a store... any who...I got the pigm blue inspires and secret garden inspires, cashew vinyasa, all three post sav pullover and blk rocket tights. I have heard such good things about the post sac pullover and inspires are my first lulu love so I am happy to see them coming in fun options! The floral is a little crazy but I had to try them. Can't wait!

I feel like it was all a blur, but I *think* I got the Camo WUP that I've been hoping for (without having to pay crazy re-sellers prices)! I haven't gotten an e-mail from Lulu confirming my order yet... but we'll see :)
Also, I'm in Canada and happened to find a Bleached Coral DSJ III in-store today (noticed they didn't upload it online though)!
Everything else was kind of meh tonight! I was happy for the half-decently early upload time!

Finally got camo fatigue WUP!!!
What a fight with the website trying to order though!(((
So glad I didn't fall for any black camo WUP or plain fatigue before- I like to have a variety and hate to sell things...

stylista diva said...

Super disappointed in Canada - no Secret Garden shorts! Some Fatigue Camo WUP showed up in size 2 only. Got the WAFS CRB that's it! Debated the hat & WUC reversible in pipe dream blue/black but wasn't really having to have either. No pow pink CRBs our side either.

Kaila said...

Camo wunder unders! Finally I got something camo!

Anonymous said...

I ordered the wee are from space black cashew CRB.

US only go the secret garden speed short? And the WAFS cashew reverse groove short?

Anonymous said...

Nope nothing

1-Inspires in Pigment Blue Sz4,
2-Secret Garden Speeds Sz 4, &
3-Lift & Separate in Pow Pink (* I got this bra in 3 other colors already this year & find myself reaching for it to wear under everything now instead of other everyday bras, so one more was easy to justify - Lulu doesn't make this bra every year so if you like it snap it up - all sizes sell out fast.)

Can't wait to wear my Angel Blue & Pow Pink L&S Bras under my Heathered black 105F singlet + these sweet new Secret Garden Speeds.

Was in and out super quick tonight!

Kathryn said...

I really hate to be the negative Nancy because I (like everyone else here) LOVE lululemon but what is going on with the patterns lately? The black/white flower pattern from fall/winter didn't go over well since there were so many items added to WMTM and then they go and make secret garden.. available in EVERYTHING. I can't get passed the idea of the petite fleur looking like granite either (wish I hadn't read that lol). Maybe it's just me.. :)

Anonymous said...

Bought the secret garden inspire crops. In my mind I don't like this print. But when I tried the pace pants or whatever they were on in store in this print I really dug them. Also bought camo wup. Don't even think I love it but was just scared it would sell out so grabbed it. I hate that. I hate that kind of shopping. I feel like for the money I spend at lululemon I should really be able to enjoy my shopping experience more. I hate these uploads but like an idiot am drawn into them every week.

LuluAddict said...

@Kathryn - you have to remember the things we are seeing now were planned out 8-9 months ago so the feedback on the brisk bloom stuff probably didn't hit. Also, if you check fashion trends, the floral prints were shown a lot on the runways so they are "on trend".

Anonymous said...

where is everyone ordering Camo fatigue WUP? I don't want them but I feel like I totally missed the boat on seeing them. I am in the US ...BTW

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 11:08 pm - they are on the Canadian side of the website. I don't believe they were uploaded to the US side.

Anonymous said...

Pass on the camo pants. The green doesn't do it for me. I'm liking the cashew stroll stripe & light paris top, didnt get those ones in Canada :(

Anonymous said...

Ordered secret garden pace rival and speed shorts. Secret garden is way better in person, IMO. I love that lululemon has prints and not just solids. It seems like people are just much slower to accept prints right away. Every time they introduce a new print, people always say they hate it. I get bored with just solids and enjoy mixing it up. Plus, these prints are very unique compared to those of most athletic brands.

Anonymous said...

Got the secret garden speeds! I'm not really a fan of this print in anything else but love it in the speeds! (Happy for all you ladies loving theborint tho - would love to see some pics of the inspires)bWould have liked to try the pigment blue inspires but I'm in Canada so only ordered what I knew I would keep as dont know when hubby will head to the states next to get our loot :)

LuluAddict said...

For all the poo-pooing the Secret Garden Inspires are sold out in 2-4-6 already - 2 hours after upload. I went back and ordered them to try. It'll probably look like a mumu on me but I am anticipating having trouble finding them in my store.

Anonymous said...

Nothing for me. Anon 11:31 PM, I completely agree that I'd like to see more prints (I get bored with solids, too), but the prints of huge flowers don't do it for me - I'm so tall that I felt I'd look like a sofa wearing those prints. Also passed on all the iterations of petite fleur, because I'm a geologist, and I don't need to look like I'm wearing rocks, that happens enough during fieldwork, ha ha! I really liked the stripes on the pigment blue vinyasa and would have definitely snapped up a top in that print, but I don't want another vinyasa. I also am not interested in more pastels (esp. pinks), grays, and blacks, print or not. I'd have been interested in the Post Savansana pullover, but not in those colors. Will also be passing on all things cashew, as that looks just like khaki to me, and I dislike khaki intensely and don't own anything in that color. So... wallet rebuilding time. :-)

Laura said...

OT but speaking of printed items....Any Lulu Angels out there still seeing the Camo Sun Salutation pant in stores?? Looking for a size 6. My local store didn't get them and I missed out online (preggo east coaster here that was asleep when they were uploaded lol). Would be super grateful!

Anonymous said...

I didn't order anything. The secret garden inspires were sold out by the time I woke up on the east coast! Shocked. Considering the speeds in that print although I prefer two way stretch. I'm also actually liking pow pink light in the CRB. I don't have any pink CRBs yet so this may be my first! I feel like the recent ones have all been a little to bright for my liking.

I haven't seen any feedback on the cashew WAFS WUCs. I don't get mine until tomorrow. I hope they are not sheer. Also, what colors are you ladies finding work well with them? I have not seen them in person.

Anonymous said...

sometimes i think that is why things sell out - @luluaddict 11:42.... i think we addicts are afraid to miss out on something... that pattern is not good - it's a louder version of spring has sprung (which was really nice) in my mind. but since i have and love my spring has sprung pacesetter skirt - maybe that is what is throwing off that pattern for me. i hope it looks great and people love it in person! thanks for all the great pics!!

Anonymous said...

I tried on the petite fleur inspire crop pants last week. They were sheer and made out of some cheap material that is not as stretchy or as nice as the usual material used for these pants. I own about 15 pairs of the Inspires and was looking forward to adding them to my collection. The petite fleur inspire crops could go on sale for $10.00 and they would be a pass for me.
These pants will definitely end up in the WMTM pile.

Anonymous said...

Are those new pants and a new bag being sported in the 3rd picture of the wafs cashew CRB?

Emily said...

Can anybody tell me - if I'm an 8 in the Energy bra and the All Sport bra, any guesses on what I'd be in the Lift and Separate bra? I know they have "real" bra sizes in that, but I'm technically a 34B (which they don't seem to make) so I was wondering if anyone wears an 8 in those other bras and found an equivalent size in the Lift and Separate. Thanks for any help!!

The secret garden inpires are now sold out on the Canadian site

Anonymous said...

I bought nothing, sigh. Again... May go to the store to try the Tone it Tank, but it looks long, and I am short.

Amanda said...

Okay, so I ordered the pace queen tight last week AND the inspires this week - both in pigment. One has to go back.

I normally run, go to Crossfit, and do yoga (I realize both aren't good for yoga). Any suggestions on which may be better for running and Crossfit in the D.C. area? I'm thinking the Inspires, but am curious how people use the pace queen tights. I'd appreciate any feedback readers have about the pace queens vs. inspires.

(This is all of course if both aren't see through. If one pair is, that makes my decision easy!)

Anonymous said...

I love Secret Garden in small doses the little pop of feminine print with solid top will be fun for summer. I was hoping for pace setter skirt in Secret Garden (the ruffles would have been so cute) but since it didn't come I settled on speeds. Can't wait to get them. On a side note I did want brisk bloom speeds but they sold out before they made it to WMTM.

Lauren F. said...

Expensive upload for me. Pow pink CRB, Pipe dream blue CRB (couldn't decide initially but finally pulled the plug because I love the color!), and the Cashew Post Sav Pullover. So excited for all of it! The amount of money I spent was easier to spend given I will be returning my WAFS cashew WUCs... Weird color.

Australian Envy: Ever since the LS Scoop Swiftlies appeared on the Australian site in Bali Breeze and Vintage Pink, I've been wanting them. North America finally gets a bright long sleeve scoop swiftly, but with ruching that I anticipate will do my figure no favors. (I am only 5'3" with relatively big legs so I can't have a lot of fabric around my waist/hips. Maternity gathers, yes indeed.) And now Australia has beautiful DSJ -- not to mention the CRB added last week -- in Pigment Blue; I also think the Lullaby DSJ is pretty BTW. I almost feel as if Lulu heaps goodies on the somewhat indifferent Australia the way a guy attempts to woo an apathetic GF with gifts. Items that sell out in hours in Canada and the US, linger there for days if not weeks. Of course, I love LLL (and OF COURSE this wonderful blog) and I hate to whine -- well, maybe I kind of like whining a little -- but I do get frustrated. I may be tempted by the Secret Garden CRB since I could never personally put that print on my legs. However, I may want to try it in the store since prints can have a high poly content. That being said, I think the Secret Garden Inspires will look adorable on others, including you LLA.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 4:53 am - Bummer. I was kind of afraid of that. The write up says they are made of luxtreme, not even power luxtreme, which is a bit thicker. My store didn't have them in when I went last week.

yogibabe said...

Ooohh...Australia got the Quickstep pants in pigment and black. I love the quickstep. Nicer silhouette than DSP, imo!

Only ordered the Rocket tight in black/retro camo. :)

Eric Lewis said...

I ordered the new Bali Breeze Mens Metal Tech
GORGEOUS!

Robyn Lewis said...

Got the inspires was tempted by camo wup but tried them instore a few months ago and they where BADLY sheer like didnt even bend and you could see the tag and fully see underwear lol waste of 100$

Anonymous said...

I was one who thought I was going to love the Secret Garden Inspires, and I stayed up for the upload. Then I saw them from all angles, and I thought to myself, you're not REALLY going to wear those. So I passed. I see now that they all sold through, but I don't feel a pang of regret, so I think I made the right decision. :)

On a different note, last night I was going through your blog posts from 2008-2009, and it made me miss the Lulu that used to be. I wish that the LLL team would go back through those years and start making those designs again with that fabric. You look at those designs and then these, and there's no contest. The old designs had so much more detail, fit nicely and you knew you could count on great fabric and seams. Made me nostalgic. Thanks for this great blog, LLA!!

Anonymous said...

I'm curious to about the pace queen tight versus the inspires as I don't own either, only I'm thinking secret garden not pigment. In length they don't seem 'that' different. If one was a higher rise I'd go for that. Not sure if I love how the black 'swoop' on the bottom of the inspires cuts into the pattern of the crop. Anyone have a preference? Thanks!

Anonymous said...

@anon 6:33 - I agree with you re: Australia - I think I spend more time on their site than I do on the CA and US site combined! I am slobbering over the new Quick Step pants and Rise and Shine jacket in pigment blue. They had Pace crops (my fave) all winter that disappeared last week and we still haven't seen them. The bali breeze CRB which I missed out on is still available there in all sizes - what are the Australians doing???? LOL - maybe they have a much saner mentality and realize it's just workout clothes - unlike me :(

Lisa Ladouceur said...

I've put the grey Post Savasana, black Rocket Crops and Secret Garden All Sport bra in my wish list, we'll see what's still in stock come pay day ;) And here I was thinking I would get away with no purchases this spring!

Anonymous said...

The pigment inspires are really nice, I have really been liking my pants for running in blue, I hope they are not sheer.
I love the lift and separate bra and usually get it if I see a new color.
I am a size 6 in the energy bra and can fit in the 34D or DD in the lift and separate.

was excited about the WAFS groove shorts and think maybe they'd work for me (more forgiving than black) but don't like the cashew band on the waist. might go back for the cashew WAFS forme, but waiting to receive my WUP from last week to check the color.

i like some other things but don't need/won't use.

looking forward to hearing what y'all think when you get your secret garden inspires! there IS something appealing about them, even if they look like a shower curtain!
glad i don't want anything because my tax bill is looking huge.

Pigment blue vinyasa scarf here

Jiji said...

I just ordered the Pigment blue Vinyasa scarf. Debated over the cashew, but I gravitate towards blue hues.
I'm holding out for Ebb to Street in Pigment for US. Anyone seen this?

Also, I've never tried Pace Queen tights. Do you size up for this? I'm a size 6, but the wee stripe is sold out in my size online (I waited too long...). I also hear mixed reviews about Inspire crops in the sheerness. Could anyone who owns recent versions comment?

Thanks so much!

Robyn Lewis said...

Regarding pants with wee space crb I could be wrong but think they are the the pants from the &go line that came out a last month

Anonymous said...

The black hair model on LLL official site recently had heavy make-ups on, with orangy lipcolor and overdone brows,,, I didn't like that at all. She's really pretty with natural and light makeups, I hope she realizes that and go back to the natural look.

Anonymous said...

@anon 4:11 I was on the fence about the WAFS cashew/black WUC until I put them on this morning. I find them super flattering (magic butt pattern ;). I ran 3 miles and took a boot camp class and didn't have to tug at them at all in my TTS 4. I got a ton of compliments and think they're a nice basic. I wore them with my black practice freely and think black is the ideal top color although blue, pink or white may work if you're feeling adventurous! Glad I kept them but if I do tire of them someday I think they'll have great re sale value.

Anonymous said...

7:45. LOL. You are right! They probably are saner in Australia than we are here -- or at least than I am.

Speaking of which, is there an Australian angel out there who would be willing to help me out? :)

Emily, order the 34C in the Lift and Separate bra. It will fit you fine. I am a 32B, and I ordered the 32C, and it fit perfect. Normally, I am a size 4 in their bras and occasionally a size 6.

I love LLL, but I just do not love some of these prints like Secret Garden. I just purchased the Pow Pink Lift and Separate this morning. I don't understand how they can make such limited numbers of Beachscape, Milky Way, and Camo WUP and limited numbers of Tech Mesh Tights and then make a whole bunch of such an ugly rose print.

I am angry because my March 17th order of the Beachscape WUP, Milky Way WUP, and green Tech Mesh Tights were sent to Colorado by mistake and were supposed to be returned to the warehouse and then re-sent to me, but they were "lost in the mail." I am so disappointed. LLL gave me a $20 gift card for my disappointment, but now, if I want these items, I have to pay twice their retail price on eBay. For now, I am learning to live with my disappointment and without the pants.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for your comment anon 9:38. I was just getting ready to make a decision to return or keep my WAFS Cashew/Black WUC. I was on the fence too but your report made me decide to keep them. I can always sell them if I get tired of them. THANKS.

Anonymous said...

@ 4:11 AM, I have the wafs cashew WUC, bought them in store. I have worn them twice now, and have received compliments. I'm in my usual size 4 and they fit perfectly and are opaque. They are VERY comfortable. Currently I have worn them with a black l/s v-neck shirt by Wilfred, from Aritzia. The shirt is butt covering and streamlined. I'm to check if they have a white one as it would also be crisp and nice for spring. On my feet: black flats (or flip flops when weather permits).

This morning I ordered the wafs cashew CRB. I love this print and colour combo!

I tried on the Warrior tank in store today and it's a really nice fit. The Costal tank was always in store today and the blue is very pretty (I sized down)

Anonymous said...

I'm getting so excited about my WAFS Cashew WUC. I live on the East Coast, so I hope to get them today!

perfk said...

I think Aussies & NZers tend to just buy the clothes they want (& when they can afford them) instead of "collecting" quite so much?

Last week I went into my local store and there was still milky way crops, beachscape WUP, camo mod moves and several other things that seem to have been snapped up in other places. It's nice to actually be able to make a decision about what I want, rather than to rush into things and then do returns and just, wow, too much hassle for running clothes.

stylista diva said...

@Jiji - Do NOT size up in the Pace Queen! Stay TTS. It is a higher waist than the inspires. Personally, I find the Inspires (this year) to be in on the sheerer side, though I like the style of them. Pace Queens give nice compression and are opaque. They are longer than the inspires though (7/8 pant as opposed to a crop). Hope this helps!

Jennifer @ Running on Lentils said...

Nothing for me but plan to get the Power Y in Pretty Purple when it gets to my store. I learned my lesson last week about ordering before trying on...returning Dance Warrior Tank because fit is baggy in waist & not supportive & also returning WAFS cashew/black WUs.

@anon 4:11--Unlike others I disliked them. Ordered in my usual size 6 & found them too roomy & not at all compressive or flattering/slimming. Also didn't like the color & think only black, white, or beige will work with it.

Anonymous said...

I love the cashew WAFS WUCs- they are opaque and flattering. And the color is awesome because it's different.

Anonymous said...

I also wore a black forme and my camo what's sup hat and felt pretty sharp (sshhhh lol). I find them more sophisticated and less trendy than the other prints (beachscape/secret garden). I don't see myself getting tired of them. They also won't show the dreaded 'crotch sweat' at the gym like almost every other color but black ���� I think they're a keeper ( at least for now).

Jiji said...

Thank you, stylista diva, for your sizing info! I'll be on the look out for size 6 wee stripe/black ones. :-)

Just got an email saying my camo wunder unders from the last upload (canada side) were not actually the wunder unders that I purchased. Wrong picture with listing. Instead it is the 'pineapple print' wunder under that is headed my way. What the!?!?!? Got a gift card which is always sweet. But what the heck is the pineapple print. I'm not actually ticked. On the contrary, I'm intrigued. Pineapple print?? LOL!

Kaila said...

Monday night I order the camo wunder unders and I couldn't believe I actually managed to get my size before they sold out! But I knew it was too good to be true! :( I thought I was in the clear I got a shipping confirmation and everything but today I received a $25 USD gift card from lululemon and them apologizing but my camo pants are actually a pineapple print... Are you kidding me? I finally order a camo print and I am actually receiving pineapple pants. I guess camo pants and I were never meant to be. :(

LMFAO! At the pineapple print. This will go down in Lulu history. I'm sorry but this is hilarious. Comedy

4:11 am here - just got my WAFS cashew WUCs and they are awesome! I find them very flattering and am happy with the compression. I had a love red crb on when they arrived and it looks great with them! I am going to use them as a neutral and will basically pair any solid color crb with them and think it will look great! These are a keeper. The only down side is now that it is getting warmer on the east coast they are somewhat heavy and I won't want to wear them during the really humid days of summer but that's fine. Bought in my usual size 4 and they fit great.

Re: the pace queen tights vs. inspires for crossfit - I crossfit and I love inspires but the current ones are just too sheer to feel comfortable in at crossfit! Heaven forbid you have to do a burpee. I have the soot light WAFS print from fall 2013 and a beaming blue pair and those are the only two pairs I'll wear to crossfit. I'm waiting for them to improve the inspires or make them in the iplux or fullux which is the heavier luxtreme the pace queen tights are made out of. It's nice and thick, not sheer and super compressive. I bought the pace queen tights but wasn't happy with all the seaming on the butt, it made my somewhat small butt look flat! Hope that helps.

Anonymous said...

I'm so glad I read your comment: I have a love red FTB top and hasn't considered them for my cashew wafs- good call! I bet bleached coral would look pretty too.. I also totally agree about the inspires. I can't feel comfortable doing a squat in mine so they're reserved for weekend runs (just have to hope I don't have to tie my shoe- groan). Annoying that an $86 pair of crops are basically panty hose. I have old navy crops that are more opaque. I'm going to have to check out the queen crops! Thanks
