Oooh! Love the combo of Menthol and Alberta Lake. I tried to color correct the top photo because the photos have a bluish tinge to them which I think ruins how pretty the two colors are together. Menthol Half Zip Swiftly and the Alberta Lake Fluffed Up Vest. Also shown are the Reflective Speed Tights. Most of the photos have been showing an Atomic Red Race With Grace with Alberta Lake. I think orange with alberta is a gross combo, I much prefer this monochromatic scheme.

Why can't the Forward Fold pants be hemmed? I thought it was a joke when I first saw them and now I'm slightly intrigued but I'd definitely need them hemmed!

@3crazykids - I would think you could hem them but then you'd lose that snap at the bottom that gathers the pants at the ankle.

I saw the vest in store yesterday but was disappointed at how thin it is.The color is beautiful though. I'd love a CRB in it.

I have a positive story about the store though. They held a pair of pants for me for two whole days and they let me exchange a pair of pants without a receipt. I was buying something else that was slightly more expensive and the item I returned had tags on them. I merely forgot to bring the receipt with me - had it in another purse - but I was within my two week return period. I thought that was super nice of them and totally unexpected. I never would have even asked if they could hold something if it weren't for your end of year summary where you mentioned that they have been more lenient in that area so thank you!

Thanks. Agree the Alberta Lake Methol combo is awesome,

Aaahh! Those methol/alberta pictures are killing it. I'm so sad because I bought a North Face (black, blocky--not pretty!) vest two months ago. That same morning, I had just tried on the Fluffed Up vest and loved the shape, but it was just selling out from its earlier release this year and my best size was already sold out everywhere. If I had known the Lulu vest was coming back this winter, I wouldn't have bought the North Face.

Argh I cannot justify two vests and its also too tough to skip this one--so cute!!!!!

Does anyone when the LS Swiftly in Space Dye Caspian Blue will be available online? Or has it been uploaded and I missed it?

Alberta Lake and Menthol together is gorgeous! Thanks for the photo.
I have a limitless blue CRB, and wondering if it's close to Alberta Lake. I guess Alberta Lake has a slightly more greenish tint.

Am loving all the dark colors coming out. Now, LLM, pls offer the Alberta Lake AND Dark Wren AND Dark Camo in CRBs.

@lulunewbie - I swear I thought I saw it but that might have been on a foreign site... Ok- just checked and it was on Australia. I know it's in US stores now so you would think it would be coming soon.

@ anon 8:11 am - Alberta Lake also looks nice with paler oranges like Pop Orange. Lulu paired it with Creamsicle Pop - a yellowy/orange - a couple of years ago. It also looks nice with brighter, cotton candy pinks, like Shell Pink.

I have the long sleeve swiftly in the caspian blue. They sold out really fast at the Union Square NYC store. I thought the army green color would go faster, but they still have a few left. I also saw the new reflective run jackets and they are not lined, which is a bit of a bummer in my opinion.

Ok, so not being picky or anything, but I really wish LLL had continued the diamond pattern quilting that is at the top of the back of the Fluffed Up Vest onto the top of the Front of the vest, too.
I find it more interesting to look at, and more universally flattering, than all those horizontal channels they put across the entire front of this vest.
I'd have purchased both colors if the front had that pretty diamond quilting detail, too.

Limitless Blue and Alberta Lake are not alike at all in color.
