I like this jacket a lot (I am a fan of puffy coats). However, for $248 you could get a north face or patagonia jacket that would be much warmer and more appropriate for the extremely cold climate that I live in. I think this would be a good " fashion" winter coat, but if I'm actually spending time outside in -10 *F, this looks too thin to keep me warm. For $150 or so I'd be tempted, but it's too pricey!I don't know if Lulu pricing is truly going crazy, or if I'm getting bored and annoyed with their products/business decisions and finally seeing their prices for what they are. I will happily pay $50 for shorts/tanks if they are awesome, but some of their stuff lately is ridiculous.
I can't wait to try this on! Does anyone know where the boots are from in the first photo?
Love the Puffy Blanket Jacket in Black! I'm in need of a super warm winter coat this year and have been thinking of purchasing a knee length North Face down coat. The Puffy Blanket Jacket looks to be a bum covering length but unfortunately not knee length which is what I'm looking for to wear with tall winter boots to stay warm while walking my dog this winter. Too bad it isn't knee length! I think the price is justifiable as long as the jacket is super warm and cozy for cold winter climates.
I fell in love!....and then I saw the price . No way in hell am I spending that on a jacket! Even if it is the cutest winter (isn) one LLL has come out with in awhile.
@ Katia 6:11 PM, those could be Frye boots.
I tried on and purchased the Puffy Blanket Jacket..My tts 10 fit but was very restrictive in the shoulders when reaching forward so I went with my size up 12. It's super cute and extremely warm and I have a full length North Face but was looking for an alternative and this fits the bill...very comfortable and light feeling despite being very warm and toasty. I bought the black which is great with the black and white ghost floral on the inside.
Because it makes all sorts of sense to be modelling a winter down coat while wearing flip flops...that'll really sell me on how warm the coat is...(no comment on the crops and canvas shoes without socks)
Katie@6:11 those are definitely Frye boots. The Jane style. Have them and love them!
Anon@5:21, I'm totally with ya! I also think their prices are going crazy. I miss the time when I could get a pair of thick warm herringbone WUP for 82. Recently I just returned my Inky Floral Roll down WUP, 102+tax for a pair of thin leggings which content 70% polyester, I don't want to pay 100 just for the pretty pattern. The price should reflects both quality and design, not just the looking. Mind you whoever think that 250 jacket is warm, you should wear it outside for at least an hour in December, then come back and tell me if it's warm enough. Don't be like 'it looks so warm!' in a sandle season in September. That's maybe part of the reason Lulu releases those now? While you don't even have a true feeling of what is real winter.
I would be all over this down jacket IF it had a warm "neck collar/lining" and a snap further up on the collarbone area. It appears it does not zip all of the way up…so would you have to wear a scarf at all times to keep your neck and upper chest warm??? I had the same problem with the down pullover last year. Frustrating, because it is adorable!
I have to agree that this down coat is probably just not worth the money. I could go into REI and buy a NF or Patagonia coat for about the same price - knowing that if the zipper broke in a few months, or something went wrong with it, they would refund me or make it right somehow. At LLL you would just be taking your chances, or have to grovel if you wanted to return it.
Agree about the neck. I live in MN and on a coldy windy day you do not want that much do your neck exposed. What if you forget your scarf? Cute design but I am sure it'll make it to WMTM (although probs not in size 6)
Drats, I love that coat, but definitely not for $250.00. That is nuts!!!
I don't buy lulu jackets. If I want a good quality jacket I get it from patagonia, the same with vests and bags. M
Agree M ... no offense, but I can't see myself spending $250 on a lululemon coat when I can get a The North Face that is much nicer for less ... and can get a vest too.
This coat maybe puffy and down filled, but it is not warm enough for the type of climate I live in. My Canada Goose coat is all I would ever want in -25 C, -32 with the windchill. Or colder. I have a couple of Lululemon down jackets which I use to run to the car on my driveway when I go to the gym on a milder winter day. In winter weather you also need something that covers your thighs, they are the first to freeze off in the wind! These Lulu coats are too expensive and frankly, useless.
This jacket is way warmer than it looks. I was wearing it when it was 50 out (granted that's not cold) and I got hot after just a couple minutes. It's literally like wrapping up in a down comforter. Also a welcomed change from their past down items, is that this is wind and water resistant as well. I'm in love
It does say down fill of 650. That won't be warm? I just tried a Patagonia jacket, same price, with 600 fill (http://www.patagonia.com/us/product/womens-bivy-down-jacket?p=27740-0) that felt pretty warm with that level. Shouldn't the Puffy Blanket Jacket be comparable? I haven't tried it on in real life (I'm considering doing so).And for someone to compare it to Canada Goose--you simply can't. Canada Goose will cost you around $500-1,000...maybe more...for a coat. That's an entirely different category, and it's ridiculous to compare that to a LLL coat.
