Upload!

I see new items. Pics and comments to follow.


The nulux Concrete Jungle Wunder Unders and Energy Bra have arrived in North America. The pants are priced at $98 so I'm not sure if that is an error or lululemon has decided to re-price nulux bottoms. I ordered the WUPs to try. A lot of the nulu prints have been see-through on me but I do like prints with palm leaves, particularly for summer, so am hoping this one is different.


Cute little bag called the Go Lightly Shoulder Bag. It's priced at a rather reasonable $78. I am always in the market for a smallish nylon shoulder bag so ordered this in black.

New color in the Sole Training SS - Blazer Blue. I'm bummed. I'd get a UPF top in this color in a heartbeat but can't stand the Sole Training line.



Bit Point Iced Gray Wunder Under Pants and Crops. I kind of like this print but am hoping it's not textured.

Loose fitting Swiftly LS Breeze. I want to see this in the store before buying it.

Blue Berry Jam Long Distance Tank.



Reveal LS and Tank in Deep Rouge. The LS looks pretty but only comes in S, M, L which doesn't usually work out for me. 


Turn About Tank in Viridian. It totally looks like you have it on backwards when it's tied in the front.

Viridian Green Power Y

Hydrangea Blue CRB II

On Track Jogger

Cut Above Pullover


French terry Cut Above Tee. This is hideous. Did some intern design this? I don't even understand how this made it into production.

Cates Tee

Did you get anything today?

I can't even believe this is the same company I used to spend $$$'s on every month. WTF.

@ anon 2:34 pm - I know! It's sad.

Ok I'm dying for the modal!! When are those pants going to come??

The Nulux pants in the uk are £82. Don't think it's an error, looks like a repricing to me. I don't think the previous price of £128/£138 (I can't remember which one it was) was going down too well. Would like to test the opacity of these though.

Seriously hopping the effortless jacket hits WMTM in chrome other than that it all lacks luster. I'm especially not into those reveal 7/8 tights...

LLA, I'd love to see some pics of the inside of the go loghtly bag when you get it.

yes, uk had nulux pant at 118 which i computed to be 108 canadian - so what a bargain at $98 -- I bought to see what they look like.
Got the hydrangea crb but not sure if it is going to be similar to the lilac colour that came out a year ago...or so.
The wmtm was huge but i had most of the good items so nothing for me from there!

yikes, none of this stuff is compelling.

You are so right LLA that the Cut Above Tee is hideous. I tried it on this morning and I thought the back looked fine but there is a lot of excess fabric under the arms that puckers out in front and the front looks and feels like a flap, strange design but this is what we get when they run out of ideas on how to design on the cheap. I tried on the Turn About Tank and found the fabric very thin and clingy and I didn't like the look with it tied in front but the other way was no big deal either, really sad sad days for tanks at LLL. I too am really disappointed in the Sole Training Line, I really liked the uv tops from the last two years but sadly only bought one.

When in the store this morning everywhere I looked so much looked the same that you couldn't tell one cropped top from the other and they are everywhere along side cropped jackets.

Not buying anything this week.

I got the Concrete Jungle WUP. The blue is much nicer in person. I love nulux.

Also accidentally bought a duplicate of the Like Nothing 7/8 for $99. I'll have to beg thenm to take them back. I forgot I owned them already...sad state of lulu affairs.

I am DEFINITELY getting the Free to Flow Tights, they look so so pretty! And I have to pairs of Flow and Go and love them, so I was sad to see them discontinued... it's a nice surprise to have them back :-))

Nothing here for me. Still very boxy and masculine overall.

I'd kill for a pretty pattern or even a stripe at this point.

I think they've been trying to bring the price point down lately. I think they realized that they hiked it too far and having to sell things on WMTM was actually worse for the bottom line than setting a reasonable price from the start.

It's so blah its astounding. What are they even trying to do here? I'm getting tired of the same boring colors and so much of the stuff seems like they are recycling older items and changing them slightly.

Julie Frank said...

After tons of boring black and white prints, I finally see one I love and want, and it's been 3 weeks/uploads and still no Bit Point Ice Grey Speed Shorts for the US. Also waiting on that Free To Be Serene bra. WTH? And that Hydrangea blue is so pretty, and the US only got it in CRB? I would have loved some Speed Shorts or a Swifty in that color. Come on LLl, you're killing me!

OMG anon 2:34!!! As I was scrolling through this upload I was thinking the EXACT same thing!! I have purchased three things from LL this year. The pop cut speeds from last year on MD, the carbon Flossy speeds on MD and the get low Pima tank in Carbon to match the speeds. (Which I only tried on based on LLA's recommendation. Thanks for that LLA, it does hang nicely) My
lack of purchases is just an all time historical low. I barely recognize it as LLL. The new blue hydrangea colour is pretty, but I have a few gorgeous pieces from years past in Lullaby, and it looks similar to that colour but without style or pretty details but it DOES come at a grossly inflated price. Yep, just no. Nothing again for me this week.

Nothing. Honestly, Lulu has been so bad that I have completely forgotten about upload. This is coming from someone who used to set an alarm to wake up for uploads back in the day.

Just ordered Effortless jacket in camo. Nothing else looks exciting

Sort of tempted by blazer blue sculpt tank and speeds. I think I'll wait to see the color in the store. I want it to be bruised berry so I'm pretty sure I'll be disappointed. The on track pants are cute but way too pricey for sweatpants. I haven't seen a new tank or short sleeve top that's actually flattering for a long time now. Would love a luxtreme built in bra tank with medium support - I have two old ones in heavy rotation. Thanks for staying motivated to keep us updated, LLA, even as the lulu loses luster.

I just noticed something unusual for my area stores (Boston). I put a few new arrival items in my cart and then decided to see if my stores got them because I rather try on before ordering. Usually stores in my area have 6+ of my size (Size 6) but all of the items I looked up had only 3 available for each store some already showed 2. I'm just thinking, are they trying to create scarcity or boost online sales or it's just my area!??

Lots of my misses...these new short tops will not open my wallet. I'm sad that Lululemon leaves the thumbholes off more than 90% of the new long sleeves. It is such a blatant price cutting that it is beyond the pale.

Sherry said...

Any reviews on the l/s sole training shirt? Not sure how I feel about the download- some new, some old.

Anonymous said...

I'm starting to wonder why I even bother checking the uploads anymore. There hasn't been anything that I've been interested in for months and months now. It isn't really even a company that appeals to me at all now, but I guess old habits die hard.

LuluAddict said...

@Sherry - I liked the Sole Training LS shirt a lot but found it to be a little on the short side. The mid section is nicely loose but fits snug enough over the chest. It's a nice top and I liked the Dark Olive one a lot but didn't get it because I was stymied as to what to pair with it - I don't have many olive-greenish bottoms. If it comes in a nice blue like Blazer I might get it but right now it's staying at the store.

@LisalisaM1 - interesting. Maybe they're cutting production back since so many items go to WMTM these days.

I agree with all these comments. I use to buy something every week and would have to limit myself. Now, I have not bought anything this year. You could not pay me to wear these new boxy crop top things, and Im in my 20s but would never wear those things. For the first time in my life, I bought clothes off of ebay, buying a caspian blue jacket from a couple years ago.

Just looking through what ebay has reminded me, Lululemon use to have soft material that draped well, was a generous length and had details like reflective strips around the wrists and extra stitching strategically done to flatter a woman's waist.

I wonder if lululemon is trying to tank their sales on purpose. I wish shareholder would revolt against bad management.

Who actually buys this stuff?

Anonymous said...

Well this upload does nothing to me, but I would say my purchases have been pretty steady . Since the beginning of the year I bought so far Bomber jacket, Gear up l/s, HT in Teeny check, On The Fly pant( although debating if I should return and order Dropt instead . On the Fly are too wide for me in the ankle area), Get Low tank in Carbon , CRB in Blue Tied , 2 Run it out tees on md , On The Fly shorts and just ordered Effortless jacket. So 10 items so far that I can think of. It's not as much as I used to buy, but I reached my saturation point and just don't need that much stuff. My lulu closet is full and I'm lucky if I wear each item 3-4 times a year

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 8:10 pm - It's depressing when you look at photos of the older stuff with so many cute design details and great functionality. I almost think it's on purpose, too, but can't imagine why anyone would do that.

@ anon 9:15 pm - It does work out well for me, also, that there isn't much I like these days. My closet is overflowing, too, and I have a son leaving for college next year.

Ashley said...

Nothing. Again.

I just noticed that they lowered the price on Love Tee III to $48. The ones in wmtm are actually $1 more expensive than regular priced ones.
There might be more items that quietly priced down.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 5:37 am - Interesting. I'll have to take a look at prices on the website today and see if I spot anymore reductions.

LisalisaM1 said...

Just checked out the concrete jungle print in store and it's a complete let down. It is absolutely beautiful until stretched out. I was so excited about but it's basically white on the thigh area. So so so pretty in person though even more than online!

LLA agree with all the comments here.
I just stopped at the lulu on 5th ave and found a tata tamer in a tan color (hena),been waiting for this color for years . the only thing I have bought in a long time from lululemon.

LLA I think you should do a LULU nostalgia post.
