$200+TAX FOR DOWN BLEND JACKET??
Nice jacket. I actually think the price point isn't ridiculous compared to some of their other items. OT, does anyone know when their holiday return period starts?
@LLA - OT> do you know of this brand yogasmoga? I live in Brentwood LA and was going to the lulu store there and this brand has just opened a gorgeous store across the street from lulu. I bought these awesome vivacity leggings for $185 that have a mesh on it and look aaamazing. They said that they are opening 5 more stores in Calif including orange county and had a store in east coast. I havent heard of them. They also had these beautiful sweaters and scarves in a Silk/Cashmere fabric they call sona - want ... does anyone know where they are from?
LLA also do you know lole? they opened in Brentwood as well - near maha yoga - never heard of them as well. hows their stuff? really liking these new brands.
It starts tomorrow, the 7th. Yay! I actually think the jacket is reasonably priced considering other lulu items. I just bought the fluff vest for $138 and wasn't very impressed. It was really thin for the money. I'll be returning it and saving my money for one of these jackets. Way more product for the $ in my opinion.
Does this jacket fit TTS or a size up item?
It is a little difficult to tell from the online website pics. Is the nightfall color in the jacket blue or purple?
@ Socal yogi...I have heard of Lole. They are a Canadian company too and make very good quality activewear. The styles may not be as cutting-edge as Lulu sometimes but the quality is good and service is excellent. This past summer I bought 2 tees from their Organic Cotton line, have washed them countless times and the color retains, as well as the fabric does not pill. There had been some complaints about the Dyhana Tee from Lulu (with curved hem) getting skewed to one side after washing so that the seams end up crooked and the curved hem veered off to one side instead of staying centered, and the Mukha tees from Lole did not do that at all even though they had a seam right down the center. I regularly check out the Lole website. Their customer service for returns, etc. is excellent.
@socal yogi - I've seen lole stuff in REI and Dick's Sporting good stores. I think people like their stuff well enough. I've tried it but never liked it enough to buy it. They are a Canadian brand.I've tried quite a bit of Yogasmoga stuff before - they gave me a ton of stuff to try when they first started up - the Twistie tank, Tickle Me Tank, Sneak N Peek Bra, U& Me bra, Yantra Tanks, Slimmie Pants, Ballerina Legging (liked those a lot), tippy toe legging, Run Jump & Play Crop, Sweet n Shorts. I even had a big review up last year (two years ago?) when they first came out until they spammed my blog with lots of fake "It's the best ever" comments and fought with me in my comments about how I found their lighter colored leggings (Spanish Gray, Seattle Mist - I see they don't offer leggings in that anymore) too revealing so I took the review down. When I say I found something revealing of flaws, take the feedback and move on, don't ask for me to post ass photos to "prove" it because it's not going to happen. I've never had a manufacturer argue with me about a review I give before and it really irritated me. I think the fabrics are really nice - very breathable and the second production run was a lot softer than the first run but very stretchy so doesn't give a lot of compression/support/smooth over flaws. The last time I tried it the fit was a bit off - I found the crotch kind of baggy - but I know they're still tweaking things. It's a decent brand. The resale is very low on the brand, as of yet. They have $185 leggings? That seems rather outrageous. For a brand based in NYC, I expect the styling to have a little more edge but over all the quality is good and it's made in the US, which is a bonus.
@ anon 7:33 pm - Nightfall is a dark purple.
Patagonia's similar jacket is $279 so I'm actually surprised at LLLs "reasonable" price point.
As much as I love lulu, I'd buy a Patagonia down jacket over lulu anytime... even though a little pricier.
I've tried Yogasmoga's tank top, the one that's very similar to LLM's CRB. I found it inferior : The fabric for the lime color felt scratchy and thin, and it puckered at the straps. Perhaps the other colors are of betty quality? Not sure. I find their range overall boring in color and design. If I'm straying from LLM, it's for brands SPLITS59 and Beyond Yoga. I'll pick Beyond Yoga's crops any time over LLM's Luon which pills on me.
I have two run jump n play crops from Yoga Smoga but I find them to be on the warmer side. Also the blue ones I have definitely have a droopy crotch which the black do not. Overall they are good quality and I've washed and worn both many times and they still look brand new. The black is a nice deep black that has not faded at all and they are well over a year old. I have one yantra tank but never wear it anymore - just don't reach for it as they say. It's too short for my liking. I'm excited for any new products in nightfall - it's beautiful!
Patagonia also offers a lifetime warranty. I broke the zipper on my Down Sweater several years after I bought it and they repaired that and a tear for free.
Patagonia is nice stuff. I can only find them at REI, which is in an inconvenient location, for me to shop but I do like their stuff a lot.
I have a softshell jacket from Lole that I actually just purchased from Sierra Trading Post (so it's last year's style). I LOVE it. Perfect midweight coat for me. However, I don't have any of their yoga stuff since I seem to find the brand only at outdoor stores where they don't have the yoga stuff Lole makes. I'm not willing to buy yoga clothes without a try-on first. Returning stuff takes too much time! But I'd definitely recommend their coats over LLL's. (Granted, I'm not huge on LLL's coats. jackets like Stride or something are awesome. not so much on the actual outdoor coats)
Patagonia will actually keep you warm and tou don't have to baby it.
@Anon 3:30 PM, no prob here re: $200+ for a "down blend jacket." After all, even North Face sells its comparable synthetic fill Thermoball Full Zip jackets for $199+ tax.Bring them online soon, pretty please, LLL, the temps are starting to dip into the 40's here!
Yogasmoga was a big fail for me. I also ran into defensiveness from the company when I offered feedback. I was so turned off
I have a yantra tank and jump and play crops as well as the ballerina leggings from yoga smoga. the crops and leggings are not sheer and they have a pretty nice gusset. they are way more pricey than lulu, but I feel that the quality is pretty good. I still like the fit of the lulu stuff better.I think that patagonia's fill jackets and vests are superior to lulu.M
