Upload!!

The upload is up. Get it here!



 Black Cherry CRB!! I ordered this.





Finally! The new Free to Be Wild Bras showed up. The US got the Vintage Pink, Black, and White and these go up to a size 12! Canada got the Menthol/Inkwell one.

The US got Miss Misty Jackets in Black Animal Swirl, Atomic Red, and Lotus Blue Camo. I ordered the Lotus Camo one. I've also heard the Rise and Shine jackets are coming soon so I might leave the tag on this for awhile.



Canada got three new bottoms in the Mystic Jungle Fatigue Black print - Wunder Under Pants, Speed Tights, and Wunder Under Crops.




Canada got new Rasberry Glo Speed Shorts. The US got Alberta Lake ones.





 I have to say I am digging the Bark Berry version of the Bomb Bomber jacket (CAN). I really love this bronze/rose gold color.

Canada got the new colors - Alberta Lake, Heathered Wren, and Heathered Slate - in the Be Present Jacket

Canada also got this funky Desert Snake Print Bark Berry Energy bra. I like this color a lot.

Both Canada and the US got the Menthol Energy bra. I ordered this.


Both countries got a Menthol All Sport bra.


Inkwell/Menthol Inspires (CAN) (US)

Chevron Shuffle Inspire Crops (CAN) (US)

Departure Vest (CAN)


The new Mudra Scarves showed up.

The US got a White Runbeam LS today.


A cute new bag was uploaded to the US - the High Mileage Duffel.

Canada got new colors - Black, Naval Blue, and Heathered Textured Gray - in the Track To Reality Pant.




New colors in the Ebb to Street Pants and In the Flow crops showed up.



Both countries got the Time Warp SS.





Canada got the Yoga Party Pant.



Quite a few decent things for a change. I got the Black Cherry CRB, Menthol Energy Bra, and Lotus Camo Miss Misty jacket. I'm not sure about the Miss Misty but I want to try it on.

Did you get anything?

I was waiting!
Got my Black Cherry CRB, whohoo!

Chezhire71 said...

And, went back for the FTBW in the Vintage Pink/Raspberry Glo. Though I'm not a *pink* person, my local store is already sold out in this colorway, and I love this bra, so I knew I'd better get it now, just in case. ;)

Anonymous said...

What's up with the price on the free to be wild bra? Wasn't it $42 earlier this year? Not sure what has changed for $6?

Anonymous said...

Meh. Where oh where are the cute tanks!? Seriously, even just release a flow and go again or something, Lulu. I really want the Raspberry Glo speeds, but I need to come to terms with the fact that Speeds just don't fit my body well. I usually need to size up to a 10 (8 works, but it causes some muffin top :/)in them, when I'm a 6 in LLL pants/crops and small to medium in Nike shorts. I don't know what it is.
Might get a white FTBW if it's still in stores when I go there on Thursday.

Chezhire71 said...

Went back a 3rd time for the SPEEDS in Chevron Shuffle/Split Pea!
I've been waiting for these!
First Lulu Speed purchase since I scored a pair of the awesome 2014 Seawheeze speeds on ebay, too.

Wow anon at 3:56 pm. If you've followed LLA's blog at all, you'd know that she posts the link to the upload as soon as she knows its available and then gathers and posts the pictures. And if you've followed her blog at all, you'd also know that she clearly "makes an effort" to post lots of photos as well as her own personal try-on reports. Geez.

Anonymous said...

Oh, for heaven's sake, anon 3:56. LLA is helping her readers out by promptly posting that link to What's New. The page is so glitchy, sometimes I need that link to access the upload. Give her a few minutes to shop before she posts her commentary.

Keep up the good work, LLA!

Amy said...

There are so many things that I "sort of" want, but nothing that is making me hit the button. I'll probably realize that I really, really need something after my size is sold out.

Hopefully the comments here will help me decide.

Miffy316 said...

My Mac is still not showing the new upload on the web. Why is that???

Anonymous said...

Ugh, my computer kept saying processing and would kick me back to the pay screen, I waited but didn't receive an order confirmation so hit complete order So far I now have the same order 3 times. Hoping no more went through.

Susan said...

Did Canada ever get the Black Cherry High Times pant? Did I completely space out and miss them?

Anonymous said...

Sometimes we say that a Lulu piece looks better on than in the pictures. With the Warp top and tights, the opposite is true. I tried both on today at the Eaton Centre, Toronto store. Boy, oh, boy. The fabric feels like it is not going to breathe well, but there are holes in it, so maybe they will provide some ventilation. But the unfinished, rolling, unevenly cut hems were such a turn-off that I will not be interested in buying these even on WMTM. The composition is 100% nylon for the top, and nylon/spandex for the tights.

Anonymous said...

Only ordered one thing...black cherry CRB, I already have a stack of purple/plum/bordeaux CRBs but couldn't resist adding this one to my collection.

Anonymous said...

I'm drooling over the FTBW's but are they do-able for a C cup in hot yoga? Or are they truly geared toward smaller chested women? Thoughts, anyone?

Anonymous said...

Went back and ordered the menthol Energy Bra. Thanks LLA for highlighting that, somehow I glossed over it the first time. I ordered two sizes because I find that the Energy Bra sizes are a bit unpredictable lately. Don't know if others are finding this to be the case, but it's frustrating when you order what you think is your size only to find out it's too small and the size up is sold out by then.

Anonymous said...

Kinda digging the mystic jungle print....I might bite if something comes out with a small dose of it, like if it were the straps on a wild tank or something.

Also, why oh why, did they make the waistband on the Alberta Lake speed shorts that baby bib looking quilt pattern?? Does anyone with common sense pre-screen these designs?

kierstin elia said...

I also have 3 more size 4 white and pink FTBW than I actually wanted, lol. Damn you spinning wheel of death! If anyone wants these before I take them back, just send me a message.

Anonymous said...

Major ordering problems. Major. Tried it in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. Just spinning and saying "processing" and then NOTHING.
This is getting sooooo tiresome. Is it that Lulu likes to say "oh, our uploads make our website crash?" what is it, get a new IT staff and fix these issues.
Had another problem this week of the wishlist not loading. Basically had to diagnose it for them.
Oh well, this gives me a chance to rethink my purchases...less money for them

Anonymous said...

i did not think i would spend a lot tonight.... geez spent way too much basically buying two of each color FTBW bras and a few other goodies like the dark blue speed shorts and the new cute duffle in grey. I am in love with this bra and will only wear these to gym

Deezee007 said...

I got the black cherry CRB and 2 Mudra scarves in silver spoon and atomic red. I know I will get a lot of wear out of these.
Really loving the Miss Misty in Atomic Red as well.

Anonymous said...

Were the alberta lake/wi14 quilt 26 speed shorts really uploaded to the Canadian side? And I missed them? Now I have to 'stalk' the stores, haha. I don't really care for the waistband but the AL and 4 way stretch is awesome.

I bought the Black Cherry CRB last week in store. I was undecided about keeping it but when I finally looked at it in natural daylight, it is a pretty colour. Different for sure than my plum and bordeaux drama CRBs but it will get worn. I find it to be a fair thickness and OK feeling (not super soft if you're wondering).

@ anon 4:38, I think the price went up this year or they are toying with it? I have 2 and my most recent one was $42 but the one before that was $48. I didn't think anything of it on the first one because it was the first time I bought the FTBW and thought that was the price.

Anonymous said...

Was ready and ordered the black cherry CRB. That's all....

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 5:21 pm - Glad I could help. I've been waiting for the Menthol Energy bra to show up ever since it showed up on the UK site. It's hitting US stores this week so I was on the lookout for it.

Anonymous said...

If anyone is after the Karmacollected (sweat)pant, a few sizes got uploaded to the Canadian side tonight in heathered black and heathered speckled black. SERIOUSLY the most comfortable, warm, flattering sweatpant ever. I bought my usual size 4 when I bought them a bit ago.

stylistadiva said...

No must haves for me. I've saved quite a bit this month on my LLL habit. I would have purchased the FTBW bra in pink/raspberry if it hit Canada, but we didn't get it. I'll check in store on the weekend as there's a few items I want to try before buying.

@Anon 5:16pm - I'm a C cup and have a few Free to be Wilds and they have been good for me.

Anonymous said...

Thanks to whoever posted about the rolled hem on the tights - rolled hems are THE WORST. I can barely tolerate them on tanks I paid $20 for, much less $100 pants. Thanks for making this an easy pass.

hillary G said...

Hi kierstin,
Do you still have an extra pink size 4? They sold out online! Thanks

Scored the black cherry CRB in my London, Ontario store. I found it pretty thick and it looks great with the Black Cherry High times. Someone asked above about them. There were on the Canadian Website but sold out pretty quick. They had a few pairs left in store so I grabbed one. Why oh why didn't we get an all white FTBW bra on our side?? I have been waiting for it. Grrr. p.s. LOVE your blog LLA!!

Jessie said...

Yay got the black cherry CRB! Also the pebble inspire tights, had my eye on those since last week on the Can side. OT i also got the Energy Stained Glass and it said Final Sale. Thought it was odd since its full price. Had to snag an 8 before they sell out, hope sizing isnt an issue I just read anon 5:21's comment. Love/hate you always lulu!

Anonymous said...

5:02 PM here again
Just contacted Lulu customer service. Seems I'm stuck with two extra pink and two extra white size 6 FTBW bras until I can return them as they can't cancel orders. Seems crazy they can't cancel orders since I know there are others out there that would purchase them tonight.

Luli Designs said...

I have the same question about the Alberta lake speeds and if they were really uploaded to the Canadian website? I saw the pink speeds but not the Alberta lake...did I miss them?

heather c said...

for some reason the bras often say that but it's not true.

Chezhire71 said...

@Anon 5:26 PM, I so agree re the Alberta Lake speeds with the weird waistband. I'd have ordered these in solid, or with a better, solid colored waistband.

Lululover said...

I got Blsck cherry CRB not because I absolutely had to have it but because when I make my mind they'll be sold out in my size. Also got Chevron Inspires crops. I'm ready for a new Define or Forme in some cute color. last one I got in Atomic Red and it was 1 of the best lulu purchases I made

Anonymous said...

Jessie - I think that is some sort of glitch that when you order a bra it says final sale. Bras are not final sale (unless from WMTM), just headwear, underwear, socks, things like that. Not only are bras not final sale, but they are free to return by mail (at least this was the case for my most recent bra purchase). Someone please correct me if I am mistaken. I really hope the free bra return policy hasn't changed.

LuluAddict said...

@luli - you are right. The Alberta Speeds were not uploaded to Canada. Sorry about that. I got confused with the little color boxes since the Alberta Speeds have that Painted Lady print in the waistband.

Sydney said...

I got the inkwell/ menthol inspire tights. I've been a little disappointed in their color options (and the sheerness of them) as of late. I've needed another pair to add to my herringbones to here is to crossing my fingers. I wish I had picked up the pink FTBW in my store weeks ago when it was there. I didn't want it then but now that its sold out - definitely a regret.

Anonymous said...

@Lululover, agreed that the Atomic Red Define is very underrated. I'm loving mine too, not just the color, but it is well constructed (no weird seam issues) with nice compressive luon. Also love the little touches like the pink accent on the back and the rose gold zipper pull. They really got everything right with this one.

Anonymous said...

anon@5:16pm I tried the FTBW bra for the first time last Friday. I LOVE the pink/pink. I'm 5'6" 125lb 34D. I tried an 8. I was spilling out more than I was comfortable with...you know when it looks like you are trying to stuff something into sausage casing. I wanted it so much but had to pass. The sales associate offered to get me a 10, but the fit across my rib cage in the 8 was perfect, so the 10 wld have been big.

As a C cup, it's worth trying on for sure.

Anonymous said...

I returned my Atomic "Red" Define cause I was expecting the color RED and what it really was...orange! Yuck! It hurt my eyes! The zipper was cute though!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 8:57 pm - Atomic Red is a total misnomer. It's not even a very reddish orange, either.

Anonymous said...

Ditto on the alberta lake speeds. What are they thinking with that hideous waistband?! I hate all the quilted waists but this one is especially FUG. They would have been a huge seller if they didn't ruin them with that detail... seems to be a theme lately with lulu. I wish they would make some plain normal 4 way speeds. The ones I have have seen better days but there are none I would wear.

Anonymous said...

First time since 2010 that I have spent more at Athleta then Lulu. I'm just not feeling it lately. I can't put my finger on it except to say that they don't even seem to be trying. That new peplum top is THE FUGGIEST FUG OF ALL FUGS!!!! I'm headed somewhere else and may be back for the new raincoats in the fall. PS - Athleta has a really cute pair of teal herringbone tights as well as some adorable French terry pants that are super chill and comfy. You know where to find me.

Chaass808 said...

When you receive your extra pink FTBW bra can I buy them from you??? My store sold out and I missed out on the upload online :(

Anonymous said...

I got the pink FTBW (Yay)! Now I'm hoping for some pink Trackers!

Anonymous said...

I too had problems placing my oder. There are 2 orders pending on my credit card statement but only one order is actually being processed according to my lulu lemon account on line detail information. I am assuming that the second order will disappear off the credit card statement.

Anonymous said...

LLA thanks for the clarification on the Alberta Lake Speeds not being uploaded to Canada yet.

Thanks for all your hard work as always! I learn a lot from your blog!

Anonymous said...

I have a pink FTBW that I bought in store but will be returning in a size 8 if anyone wants it before I return.

LuluAddict said...

People who missed the Vintage Pink Free to Be Wild bra (or whatever you are looking for), try calling around to stores near you to see if they will do a charge send and mail you the bra. I know they are still in US stores. More and more stores are sending things to people. If you go to the website and look under the "community" and "store finder" you find a list of all the lululemon stores.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 5:20 am - you're welcome and thanks for reading. I apologize for goofing on that.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 10:22 pm - I got the latest Athleta catalog the other day and there are a ton of super cute items in it. I need to head to their store to check some of it out. Athleta has been killing it. My biggest problem is that when I get to the store a lot of their stuff usually looks great on the models and not so great in real life. Lululemon is the opposite for some reason, stuff will look meh on the models but much better in person. However, Athleta has a lot of interesting looking singlets and coverup/to-from pieces I want to check out.

Anonymous said...

@anon 10:22- same here. I've been buying all athleta as of late. I was on the LLL bandwagon for almost a decade, and I have become less and less interested. I have purchased exactly 3 things this year, and I returned them all. This from a girl who used to walk into the store and leave empty handed because I already owned it all. (Mortifying) Sheer fabric, bad design-- just not doing it for me anymore. I've been buying a lot of Athleta (they came out with a fabric that's a lot like Luxtreme! YES!), and some Splits 59.
The new spring stuff from Athleta looks amazing- I'm planning to hit up the store this weekend. Plus they have petites online- love that too.

That's good news for me and bad news for my bank account. Cheers!

Good info! Thank you! I freaking love this board/community. Beyond helpful

I grabbed a bunch of t-shirts at Athleta yesterday, and there were some cute things there. I buy most of my sweaters at Athleta; I find the styles fit me better and they wear really well. I haven't had great luck with Lulu sweaters. I also get all of my swimwear at Athleta, and I love their breathe tees and tanks. And of course, you can't beat Athleta's return policy. I buy more at LL, but Athleta could win me over if LL isn't careful...

Lululover said...

In all fearness to lulu I would say that although there have been some obvious flops in the last few months there were also lots of great items and colors. I personally can't get enough of Boom Juice , Alberta lake, Atomic Red, Menthol and Oil Slick camo. I also liked Sequin Inspires , Houndstooth WUP and Chevron print. Fluffed up vests were great , Think fast hoodie. I mean if they kept coming up with only great stuff I woukd have been broke by now! Lol

LuluAddict said...

@lululover -for sure!

you know what is interesting? I noticed yesterday that no one at my crossfit gym is wearing Inspires anymore. I've been crossfitting for about 4 years now, and EVERY winter all the girls wore Inspire crops. It was like a uniform. It just hit me that almost no one does any more. I'm seeing a lot more Nike, some Athleta, and some other brands....but almost no Inspires. I feel like it has to be the problem with the sheer fabric, the fit isn't as good any more...hmm. Anyone else notice this?

Chaass808 said...

Can I buy them from you before u return?

Chaass808 said...

Do you still have an extra pink FTBW bra?

Anonymous said...

If we are talking about recent years, LLL in 2014 was overall pretty decent. Not everything is going to be for everyone, including me. Really not a fan of the &Go line and even though it's LLL lab type stuff, I wish they'd keep it out of LLL. They gave us back wafs, camo (not a huge lover), and good herringbone items. They are still lackluster on jackets, imho. Although I was very happy they created a fluffed up vest in Alberta Lake! I needed a new vest and am SO glad I held off.

BUT they are capable of so much better, as seen in the items created for Wanderlust and Sea Wheeze. I'm not saying those exact items need to be sold in stores but at least step up the taste level and overall appeal in the regular retail. While there was good stuff there have been way too many duds.

Finally, lucky you who have choice to go to Athleta. I'm in Canada and they are not here. Why is that? We have Gap, ON, and BR, which Athleta is part of. I've emailed them on it and they simply invite me to go shop in their online store. Not going to happen because it is not worth the fees/S&H. For $50 Athleta crops I may as well go buy $100 LLL crops. I also do not care to buy blindly, without having tried stuff on. Lately I've been looking at Lole (Canadian brand), nice stuff and not cheap either (LLL prices).

Contessa said...

I have only bought CRB's lately from LLL and it has been a far and few between as far as how much I purchase. Their styles and colors have been Meh in my beloved CRB and now with the addition of the studio CRB which looks horrible on me; I could be done with LLL. So far I have purchased a lot from both Athelta and Lucy. All my CRBs look great with their bottoms. I was excited that I got a black cherry crb today but if their stock in this staple keeps going down I maybe gone forever.

Anonymous said...

There are so many pink FTBW bras at my local store right now. I would definitely call in - seems like they were a lot more popular online because they've been in stores for week.

Any size 4s left? I will take one!
