New Product Arriving in the US - Zen Wrap!!!

Just posted on the Lululemon Pearl District Facebook page. They seem to be the first US store to get stuff (or at least post about it) so I think the Newport Store will get it sometime next week. I have no other info about this than the photos. I can't tell if it is a knit or made of French terry, beechlu, or whatever. I hope it is some sort of cotton. Drat you, Lululemon! I thought I could get away with not buying any more stuff this month. ;-)

Upload - The Cute Pink Power Y was Uploaded - under the wrong photo!!!

The Bubbilicous Horizon (not heathered) stripe is on-line except it's hidden under the wrong photo. If you click to sort by 'New Arrivals' the white striped Power Y is third (on the US Site) and if you click through, the new Power Y will pop up. Idiots.

Newest Upload - New Tank: Run Energy SL & Run: For Fun Dress

Run: Energy SL Tank
Lululemon added a couple of surprises to today's upload - the Run: Energy SL Tank and the Run: For Fun Dress. Although I have an I Just Wanna Run tank I like this tank a lot. It hugs the model's curves nicely, especially in the back. I don't know if I will buy one because it is so similar to the I Just Wanna Run tank but I will definitely try it on when it hits the stores. I wonder if this tank will run as large as the I Just Wanna Run in which most people sized down one size. I just noticed the price was $58 where the IJWR tank was $52. I wonder what makes it $6 more. I would almost argue the IJWR tank is more detailed in design because there are two puckered seams in the front rather than the one in the back of the Energy tank. Hmmmm. I wonder, is the next version going to have puckered seams in both the front and back? We can look like we're wearing a balloon valance.

I Just Wanna Run Tank

Product Features of the Run: Energy SL Tank:

  • A light weight racer back great for warm weather running or a hot yoga class
  • Made from Silverescent™ is anti stink and anti static, moderating core temperature and inhibiting bacteria growth
  • Extra low armholes, and loose fit for ease of movement
  • Cinch the drawcord in the hem to keep it from riding up during your run
  • Pocket for cards or keys
  • Flat seamed for chafe resistance & comfort
  • $58 (!?!?)

 Run: For Fun Dress
Running dresses don't do much for me but I know some people like them.I can't tell if the top is double layered or they just modeled it with a matching bra. The description says dropped armhole for movement and layer over bra so I suspect it doesn't have a built in bra but the double layered look is one reason it looks kinda cute. It's a hefty $98 so I don't know how great a deal that is if it doesn't have a built in bra and built in undies. If I see it in the stores, I'll check it out and give you more info. Confirmation was just posted on FB per the GEC that there is no built in bra with a double layered look. They paired it with the matching Flow Y in the photo. How stupid of them not to upload the matching Flow Y at the same time as the dress.

Product Info:

  • Technical running tunic, also great for tennis
  • Lightweight & breathable Silverescent™ has anti-stink and anti-static properties
  • Loose fit with dropped armhole for movement
  • Cinchable drawcord for customizable fit
  • Secret stash pocket for cards or keys
  • Layer over bra, shorts or tights

The No Limit Tank was uploaded in black. It only goes to a size 10 - BOOOOOOOOOOOO Lululemon! When it came out in the stores last September it went to a 12. I guess I have a collector's item. All my product alerts said it went to a 12 so maybe the stores got 12s. If so, why not put the 12s on line? Luluemon's sizing schizophrenia drives me up a wall. Carry a full size range in everything like normal stores and stop effing around. It's really irritating as a consumer that they play these games. I also only paid $58 but I did think it was a bit of a bargain since it combined a Flow Y bra and a tank.
