Trail Bound Half Zip and 7/8 Tight. I tried on the Trail Bound Half Zip today. It wasn't half bad and the swim material "durable" inserts didn't feel as icky as I thought against my skin. As someone mentioned here in the comments, you can totally read the number of the size dot in the pocket in the Strawberry Milkshake color. I'd much prefer an all luxtreme top with a center back zip pocket and a longer zipper on the chest. I think the fit was roomy TTS.  I found the Tights a bit snug to get on since the swim material inserts down the sides didn't stretch as much as luxtreme. I did like the Star Crushed Coal/Black print a lot but would prefer the Wunder Under Crop version that is currently on sale in the UK.

I tried on the Weekend LS tops and actually liked the Prickly Pear one a lot. It's much cuter in person than it is in the photos. I thought the Bordeaux one fit smaller than the Indigo Lux and Pear ones. Since I was returning a few things I ended up getting the Lux Indigo stripe one. The fit is roomy and you can size down if you like.

I was very tempted to get the new Hip to Be Free bag but there are only so many small nylon bags I can use so I let it go for now.

LLA, do you know where the picture of the Trail Bound Half Zip is from? I think that's one of the Wyland whale walls in the background, and I've been infatuated with those since I was a little kid!

WMTM is up for today, 110 items, some nice selections.
I bought the Let's Get Visible Hoodie in the gorgeous, solid Alberta Lake.
I've been lusting after this piece in this colorway since its release. I tried it on in a local store, and feel it fits TTS with room to layer over my FTBW bras + LS Swiftlies.
However, as much as I loved it, and wanted something in a solid Alberta Lake color, I certainly wasn't going to pay the full $228 for it, nor even the $178 reduced price @ my local store a few weeks back. It's a hoodie, Lululemon, and not even a wind resistant one, lol.
I knew Lulu would eventually mark it down to a reasonable price for its functionality as a layering hoodie. $138 is a great price for this piece, and the Alberta Lake version is sooo gorgeous on.

Just recieved my order with the best vest jacket. It is a cute look/fitted fit (TTS) with the pleated details and covers the bum. But it is super lightweight, and low on high end details (the jacket buttons onto the vest in 3 places which just seems strangely non-technical (snaps would make so much more sense here) especially if you are supposed to throw it on in a drizzle for eg.) Buttons will also give way eventually. I love running in vests, and this would work well for that (also love the light grey color). But it is really hard to justify for 178 IMO given the quality.

I know! WMTM was sweet this morning. I ordered a black Race With Grace. I have that Atomic Red RWG that I totally love. I swear, as I tried on the Trail Bound yesterday I did think that I'd rather have another Race with Grace instead.

I don't know if this is happening everywhere, but I just got confirmation that my store (Crescent Court Spokane) is putting about half of their current inventory on MD tomorrow to make room for all the stuff coming in after the LA port issues were cleared up. I'm guessing this relates to the giant WMTM this morning, so maybe lots of stores will have big MD selections tomorrow! :)

@ anon 2:08 pm - Ooh! My store told me yesterday that they are having a special sale event on Saturday and are going to open an hour early. One of the eds told me that there is stuff still on container ships that they were supposed to get in February.

OT: I need to find new running tights with a pocket big enough for my iPhone 6. Would the Trail Bound 7/8 tight work? Or the Inspire tight? I can't tell from the website photos how big the pockets actually are. TIA!!

@Katia - Trail Bounds definitely would since they have a thigh pocket. Speed Tights would work, too, since they have a thigh pocket. I bought two pairs of Speed Tights this winter and absolutely love them. Inspire crops won't work. They barely fit my iphone 5S without the case. Inspire Tight won't even fit my iphone 5s in that crappy thigh pocket. Runday crops might work since the pocket in the back is really large.

Thanks for the info Luluaddict!
