Upload!



Tight Stuff Tights in Low Alpine White/Black



New Run the Day Bra.


New Sea Mist and Caspian Blue Energy Bras. I wonder whether these are made with leftover material. If they are, they'll have a nude liner. A comparison of Sea Mist to last year's Tonic Sea can be found here. A comparison of Ice Milk to Caspian can be found here.

Low Tide Blush Energy Bra



Dark Adobe and Ice Milk Cool Racerback II

Cherry Blossom Ta Ta Tamer. I wish they'd put out a Cherry Blossom Free to Be Serene bra.

Dark Adobe Define Jacket


Inexplicably, a down jacket showed up, just in time for the heat of August (smh) -  Just Enough Puff jacket.

Fractal Dark Starlight Fast and Free Crop


Low Tide Blush Speed Tights and luxtreme Wunder Under Tights


Ready Set Go Tights

Run Times Shorts in Low Tide Alpine



Submarine Swiftly LS and SS. I'll probably order one of these.



Train Times in Low Tide Alpine

Dark Adobe Carry the Day bag

Lavender Gray Sweat Date Singlet



Nothing for me but I might go back and order one of the new Submarine Swiftly tops. Anything for you?

I'm really psyched to see a Dark Adobe Define Jacket, but I don't know if I'm ready to throw $128 + 13% tax at it. Hopefully they put some of the colored Defines in WMTM soon.

Also, does anyone know a good place to buy secondhand Lulu gear other than ebay and kijiji? There are a few older items that I'm trying to score, and I would really like to search beyond these two sites.

Pretty "meh" upload, if you ask me.

I don't understand why they keep releasing new prints in the Tight Stuff Tights. At $158, I don't think many people are investing in them, so they should (hopefully) hit the WMTM soon. The Low Tide prints are alright; I don't think I'll be putting any money towards anything in them though. And the new "Ready Set Go" tights just look so......hideous. I hate to be so negative, but that color-blocking with the black and the dark purple is just not working out for those tights.

I find myself more excited to see what hits the WMTM than the new uploads these days. Oh well.

Not one technical running jacket to be seen but yes give us a puffer jacket in July. Nothing for me.

I may order the submarine long sleeve since it is more of a fall color. I have too many SS swiftlies as it is and I just added another in Lip Gloss because I couldn't resist it, reminded me so much of Flash in person, and it is super saturated

Just placed an order for the Run the Day bras. It's a unique style and I pray they look cute on me.

There's tons of Lululemon on poshmark if your in the states. Also lots of buy and sell groups on Facebook.

Goodwill auctions always has Lululemon items.

Wallet is safe. The appearance of a puffer jacket vest and jacket in the middle of the summer stunned me a bit. Does that mean that they will be on sale by fall?

Has Lulu changed its designers?? For recent months the new releases have been boring...

I'm liking Ready Set Go tights. Just debating which color or even stay black. I think that detail looks very interesting and makes them different . I have been buying tanks for the last few months and this will be my first bottom purchase

Too funny on the down jacket! SMH is right!

Nothing for me. I like the Submarine ss & ls Swiftlies but do not need them and really cannot suck up the higher prices for these tops anymore. I really don't shop LLL that much now.

I'm in Canada and did order some stuff from Adidas online sale last week (it is still on until tomorrow 19th, midnight ET, however the discount is not as good as it was last week). It was a great score for a pair of beautiful hiking shoes, Pure Boost runners, and a bag. Plus my Eagle Rock Werkshop tights arrived and I love them. That was a huge splurge for me.

@Anon 3:22-- Both Poshmark and Tradesy have helped me find some older items. You could also try searching the Lululemon Exchange group on FB. I occasionally have luck there.

Nothing for me today. I've got my eye on some things from a few weeks ago. I may pull the trigger on one or two of those.

I also laughed when I saw the puffer jacket and vest. I happened to be hiding under an umbrella watching my kids play in the water...it was 100 degrees out. It's a cute jacket, but I can't imagine buying it now and then waiting 4 months to wear it. Now, if they had released it in November, I would have snapped it up!

I am thinking of the Adobe Scuba. The define may be too close or same color family with deep rouge

@ anon 6:04 pm - Potdevin brought in a guy from Nike - Lee Holman - to be head of design and his "vision" (black, white, blah, & Nike-fied) kicked in last fall.

Kirsten Theobald said...

I don't personally love crazy patterns - I actually really like the neutral vibes. So none of the new prints or patterns or anything really stick out to me, but I definitely ordered the pretty Sea Mist Energy Bra and Lavender Grey Sweat Date Singlet :)

cel said...

Is anyone else having issues with the new photography style? I find the images to be too bright and small and I can't tell if I like the new designs or not.

LuluAddict said...

@cel - I would like some better close ups or wish they had a zoom function but even before this new change the close ups were hit or miss.

Marlies said...

Ahhhhhh... remember the days (well, nights, really) of sitting and waiting with bated breath for the weekly uploads and then buying ALL THE THINGS??? Now I hardly remember that there even was an upload... so sad... I miss the old lulu...

The comparison photos are of ice milk and aquamarine. As far as I know Caspian and ice milk are the same color. I have a pair of shorts with no liner from a couple of years ago in Caspian blue. I compared those with my new speed shorts in ice milk and it is the same color.

Anon 3:22: there's also Mercari to look for lulu items. They don't charge sellers fees there which makes it the cheapest site to buy

LuluAddict said...

@M - thanks! I put the wrong link. It's fixed now. Caspian to Ice Milk is here: http://www.luluaddict.com/2017/07/color-comparison-iced-milk-vs-caspian.html

I'm also waiting on another Free to be Serene color.

My warehouse order (CRB I's and FTB bras) from last week just arrived (I am in Canada, in Ontario). I ordered the Cranberry and Sapphire Blue CRBs and I am very pleased. They are quite thick and so soft and the colours are gorgeous. I have been wanting this true cranberry (in luon or luon light) for a looong time, and I never thought it would materialize. Sapphire Blue is also lovely, even nicer than Pigment. I sold my Pigment CRB a few years ago as I didn't like the feel/texture, although I loved the colour. This one is even nicer. As far as overall quality goes on these two CRBs goes, I have to say that this is the LLL thaThe three FTB bras are also tts, comfortable and solid but perhaps two have thinner straps than normal. I am still happy with them though.

I only got my shipment notification today and was told one item, the minty pink energy bra, was unavailable. I ordered at 3am ontario time and it sold out long after so how does that happen?

Tons of Facebook groups

Me too!! I don't even care about wmtm !

Me too, I got my cranberry CRB, and I'm very pleased with it. Nice and thick, gorgeous colour. The dark chrome Embodiment tank is really fetching and practical too. I had my eye on that for a long time, so I knew what I was getting. You can't beat the price, $29 for each.
Yes, Marlies, I remember those days when the upload was an event. I always woke myself up at 3:00 in the morning, scanned the offerings, and quickly ordered what I liked, because the best ones were gone in minutes! Now... at times I forget about the uploads altogether. And then sometimes it can be such a letdown to see the new items. Short, or revealing, or unpractical, gloomy colours, cheaply made, too trendy, ruined staples, etc. What keeps me buying and on this blog is the fact that they still produce the occasional good piece. I strictly buy from the online WMTM these days, and only things I had the opportunity to try on when they were full price. No use to wish for the glory days back, the world keeps on turning.

I got the Sea Mist Energy Bra today - slightly disappointed. First - it does have a nude liner, so I assume it's leftover material; I don't mind one bit about that though. My issue is that online it looks like a really pretty sea green color - in person, it's a fuller version of Toothpaste. No blue undertones like the stock photos show. Not sure if I'll keep or return - I don't love the Energy bras but they always release the nicest colors in those. I'm with y'all - love the FTB Serenes

LuluAddict said...

@Kristen Theobald - I agree, the new photography seems to distort colors more than in the past. The photos of the Sea Mist Energy Bra made it look like my Tonic Sea one (http://www.luluaddict.com/2016/09/color-comparison-tonic-sea-to.html) but I knew from past releases of Sea Mist that it's paler and yellower than what is on the website now.

Kirsten Theobald said...

By fuller version of toothpaste - I meant paler haha. I did end up returning it. I only bought it because I loved the color, but didn't get what I was hoping for. Oh well - more to spend next Tuesday
