Lululemon On Line Warehouse Sale (UPDATED)

The warehouse sale went live around 11:30 or so, depending on when your browser updated. There are some ok deals, like Energy Bras for $29, but I half suspect they were made from left over material since I don't recall a solid Bon Bon one being released. I bought one a couple of years ago but it has different color straps. I didn't get anything for myself but did get my son some $29 sweatpants.  Did you buy anything?

Update #1 - Price drop on some items!

Is this it? Not very many new items at all. A lot of it is stuff that was already on WMTM. I got a lilac 105 singlet and anew crops in white but I'm bored by solid color energy bras at this point - was hoping for a lot more than this. I'm off to bed.

I felt that Canada has better sale stock. I only picked up a crb in cranberry and the Hit it 7/8 tights in hero blue.

Crazy boring. Didnt get anything. The guys got some super good deals though... if only that would happen to the girls too.

HELLO DANCE STUDIO CROPS! They have been sitting on these babies for years but thank goodness someone in a warehouse found these, dusted them off and included them in this sale. Oh I am over the moon happy and still a bit in shock that I was able to buy these again after so many years of longing for them. I bought 3 pairs and nothing else. It was very strange that when I first when online I was seeing less product than they had on WMTM earlier in the day so I thought what the hell. But low and behold in the midst of all the other same old same old product there they were, the best damn crops ever made for casual wear. I am one happy camper right now and can't wait for my delivery to arrive.

Honestly, it seemed like they just divided up the WMTM section. I check that page fairly often, and there seemed to be very few new items that weren't up last week. Some of the prices were slightly reduced from the previous WMTM price, but I'm overall very underwhelmed.

Thank you for this sale alert yesterday. I didn't stay up (would be middle night EDT) but shopped 8 a.m. I purchased two CRB originals (lakeside blue and cranberry) and I think they are luon light. I was delighted to see those were available. I considered the two, black speckly ones but I suspected I wouldn't like the texture. I also purchased three FTB bras - which I haven't actually bought any since they jacked the prices. Happy to get them in size 6 at the old sale price and add some good ones to the rotation (it's the only bra I wear not, even day-to-day). I was going to buy more of those but really tried to control myself, including not purchasing another vinyasa scarf.

On the whole, The sale wasn't especially interesting. I did buy the energy bra in bon bon, a power Y in jewelled magenta (one of my favourite colours ever), and a CRB in cranberry to wear to Canada Day runs in the future. I was tempted to buy a free to be bra too since I always wear them, but then I just didn't. I'm happy enough with the things that I chose, and the prices that I paid for them.

Last warehouse sale, I clicked on as soon as you linked. I got a lot of good deals (good quality/low prices) which would not have been there 12 hours later when I got the actual email. This time, I knew nothing about the sale until I got the email which looks to be 12 hours later than the live link again. Clicked on & have only seen the same old stuff that has been hanging around in WMTM for ridiculous prices. Did they lower the price on anything?? Maybe there were good deals before I knew about this, but I'm doubting it. easy pass for me.

This is Lulu's current bait & switch: change the name & sell high.

I too noticed the Bon Bon energy bra didn't have the different straps like last time. Got it anyways, that and the rasp glo since I love bright pinks. Would have gotten the 105s but not at $39. I really like them for summer since they are so light, but not worth $39 IMO and I already have 5 that I snagged for $16-19 on Lululand.

I picked up 3 CRBs in Cranberry, Sapphire Blue, and the Black Cut back stripe line one. I find myself reaching for my CRBs for CrossFit more than anything, so I can always use more, especially at $29. I also picked up the Loop Back shorts in magnum since they were a decent price at $29, and then I bought my boyfriend two pairs of pants for $29 each. Wow... I just realized everything I bought was $29. ha! Overall was underwhelmed with the sale, but still happy with what I got.

Not one single thing I want from the sale. Also the prices are not that good.

Soooooo basically this was a way for LLL to get people to buy shit from their stagnant WMTM.

Anonymous said...

same price as WMTM except a few pairs of men's pants and shorts which I bought like 14 pairs of pants and shorts for my boyfriend and family. keeping them for xmas and their b'days. $29, $39, $49 pants. I pigged out. saved me so much money for future gifts for him, my dad and brother

Guy here, there is nothing really different between the Warehouse Sale and WMTM. Prices are almost similar and there are a few major markdowns (ie: $29 dollar sweatpant no longer available in smaller sizes). Overall, the its a pathetic attempt by LLL to get sales going by changing their sale section name. Plus the Men's offering still suck and have been like that for probably the last 1.5 to 2 years.

I got an Energy Bra in Dandy Digie Multi. I've always wanted a sports bra from Lulu, but I could never bring myself to fork up the original $58 for a bra ($65.54 after you throw our awful Canadian tax at it). $32 is a lot more into my comfort zone. I was kind of interested in the Bon Bon EB and the Dandy Digie Porcelain Black EB, but I didn't want to buy 2, and figured that the Digie Multi EB was the best of both worlds.

My mom also decided to splurge and get herself the white Run For Cold jacket. She was a little disappointed that they couldn't bring the price down any further (no one's buying them and I got my black Run For Cold Jacket for like $85), but she was afraid that her size might disappear, so she got them. My sister also invested in the Daisy Dust Alpine Invigorate Tights.

The sale was not too great, but my family scored a few things. Still waiting for the Inspire Tight II to go on sale in black. I feel like it's coming.

Like many of us, I bought a cranberry CRB and also an Embodiment tank in dark chrome. They were $29.00 each and that's how much they are worth to me. Everything else was meh. I didn't find this warehouse sale as good as the ones in past years. My addiction to Lululemon was over a long time ago.

Got $29 sweats for hubby, but that's it.

I saw no original Dance Studio Crops. Just the II's so not sure which ones anon @ 4:35 purchased. Unless by the time I looked the originals were gone.

It just looked like a revamp of WMTM. Nothing. Not anything that hasn't already been on WMTM that I haven't passed on a thousand times already. I literally could not find one thing to put into my cart!

I notice many "new" color items and items never on the website in the outlets and then on WMTM. With their outlets and WMTM. I'm fearing they are going the way of the actual outlets like Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor and even Michael Kors, Barney's, BCBC, Cole Haan and all the others. Where literally 95% of the stuff in the store is made for the outlet and never saw the inside of an actual real store or boutique. Lesser quality items. Seems the Energy bra in Rasp Glo, Bon Bon, Lakeside Blue are a part of this. Same with the Tech Mesh singlets and the 105 singlets. Made for factory, cheaper quality. It's sad.

Hi Anon 2:09pm This is Anon 4:35a.m. This has been quite confusing thinking I was ordering the originals then realizing they were advertised as ll's but I was adamant that I had ordered the originals and this is why: The pictures they used were of the originals!!! I zoomed in and saw the elastic seams on the back of the legs and the loose hem. After people started talking today that they were the ll's (which I hate" and not originals I felt sick to my stomach because I love the originals soooo much so I did some investigating. I googled Dance Studio Crops and clicked on a link to an old LLL posting for Dance Studio Crops ll's that had two colours, a dark teal and black ones. When I click on the black up comes pictures of the ORIGINALS DSC not the ll's and these are the pictures LLL used to advertise the Dance Studio Crop ll on their warehouse sale. So now I have no idea what crops I am getting but I do know if they are the ll's they will be returned and there is no way they can refuse to take them back.

I follow WMTM closely and most of this stuff was already on MD. A few things were decreased in price, but more things went UP in price. Wtf?! Only thing I could figure out why was bc they added more color choices. I just bought a 105 singlet off WMTM for $29 yesterday and today they are $39. So, nothing for me bc I'm so annoyed

Miranda said...

Funny you say that about the bon bon energy bra, because I was thinking something similar about the Lulu Red Free to be bra I bought. I don't recall ever seeing that or some of the other FTB bras that were on there.

I also snagged the Cranberry and Stripe CRB's, as well as a couple tech mesh singlets with the 2 FTB bras. Also got some Core shorts for my husband. Overall I thought the prices for most items were disappointing, but moreso the selection was poor.

The energy bras were made for the outlet/WMTM/warehouse sale, and there is a noticeable difference in quality between them and the full price energy bras. You can feel it in the fabric, band, and straps. The liner is a nude fabric rather than the same color as the body of the bra. I wore my new WMTM edition Raspberry Glo energy bra on a run this morning and noticed distinct reduced support. The straps were wavy when I took it off. I don't care for this new era of merchandise that is manufactured for the outlets and WMTM at all.

I got a few classic items at the formerly lower, wmtm prices and that was good enough for me. No going crazy and I certainly didn't expect any amazing prices. It is unlikely that there will be such prices again. Most everyone knows that the box store outlets are really where unwanted LLL goes to die for $17 or some such. Online clearance is really the thing now more than it has ever been.

The Dance Studio crops were there early this morning Eastern time. I mulled them over but passed. Good for those who were after them.

I am well over thinking this brand is ever going to have an resurgence and be great again with respect to quality, design, and detail for the (increasing) prices they charge. Personally I have been happy to move on. I keep my eye on a few things but I also won't pay the ever increasing prices (e.g. bras) and they have lost me with respect to their dullard "design" direction.

@ anon 6:05 pm - Oh wow on the quality being lower. I thought the made-for-WMTM CRBs I got at Xmas were decent quality but this whole made-for-outlet is going to screw over people buying re-sale items. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to keep track of what colors were WMTM/outlet-made and regular first run stuff.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 4:35 am - these were the original DSCs with the wider leg? I missed them! Though, I have four pairs so don't really 'need' more.

@Laura - yes, before the official "Warehouse" sale went up there were 214 items in the US WMTM and then it decreased to 161 and lots of the prices were the same. Others had another $10 knocked off.

@ anon 7:20 am - I agree. The energy bras got the price knocked down from $39 to $29 but most things seemed to stay the same or have an additional $10 off.

@ Andrea Badea - I think those 105Fs are made especially for WMTM/outlets. I've read people complaining they don't fit/feel the same as the original runs of 105Fs.

@jwcdis - agree about the mens sucking for nearly two years now. I bought my son so many cute cotton hoodies and sweatshirts over the past few years and now they seem to have given up using cotton fleece for guys and only use that crappy spacer stuff. Plus, the prices on the men's stuff is just outrageous and the sale prices are still very high.

@ anon 2:09 pm - Yup exactly - tech mesh singlets and the 105Fs are for sure made for WMTM/outlet. Also a lot of the CRB 1s it seems. This made for outlet stuff is going to screw up the re-sale market. I'm going to have to do a more thorough job of documenting uploads so I capture the first run colors and designs.

@ anon 4:01 pm - I would not be surprised if they used the old photo but sent the IIs.

@ anon 4:04 pm - I didn't even catch the price increase on the 105F!

@ anon 6:08 pm - The only item I have been consistently liking and buying are the Free to Be Serene bras.

There's 2 bags that I've been watching on WMTM for at least a month hoping they might drop a tiny bit more (I don't NEED them, just like). With the warehouse sale I thought I would have my shot, but no. They didn't even drop them $5! What's the point of calling it a warehouse sale if it's just stuff that's been rotating on WMTM for the past few months and the prices haven't changed? Boring lulu.

I totally agree, put my new glow energy bra on in the morning and felt so unsupported had to change it by the afternoon to an old SILIH to go for a jog. Disappointed.

janine57 said...

You are so right! Very underwhelming but handy the nordy sale was up. Lulu kinda sux.. at least reduce what was on wmtm !

Anonymous said...

@Anon 6:05 and Anon 7:46, II'm really hoping that your experience with the raspberry glow energy bras doesn't translate to the bon bon bras. I looked at some of my older energy bras, and while most of them have matching liners, one has a plain off-white liner (I may have bought it on sale, not sure, but there are no quality issues) and another has a being liner with a print (manifesto?), so there is some variability. I'm flat as a pancake so I really don't need any support, but I do hope the band and straps aren't too different.
