New Stuff Coming - Devi Pants and Crops - Like!

  
 
New Devi Pants

  
 
Dance Studio Pants
 
Devi Crop

Although some people on Lululemon's Facebook site are poo poo-ing the new Devi pants and crops as more schlumpy sweatpants like the new Namaste pants, the Devis aren't the same animal at all. They are made of the lightweight, stretchy breathable Swift fabric. Swift fabric is going to fall a lot differently on the body than heavy, thick, bulky french terry. The Devi pant/crops are very similar to the Dance Studio pants/crops, shown in the middle photo, except they aren't as fussy. I really like the more streamlined look of the Devi pant compared to the Dance Studio pant. I have a pair of Lucy pants that are similar to the Lululemon swift material pants. They are called the Spa Pant and made of a similar lightweight stretchy fabric.
 
  
Lucy Spa Pant

Lululemon pants made from Swift fabric are fantastic lightweight stretchy pants that are awesome for the warmer weather when full length luon and frech terry pants feel too hot (so are the Lucy Spa pant). I've tried on the Dance Studio pant and liked the material but not the design up the back of the leg. I can't wait to try on the Devi pant.  Although I don't like the stock photo, I think the crops would look very cute in solid black.

Store Trip Report: I went to the Lululemon store today. I didn't try anything on and I didn't buy anything. It was a very quick trip since I had all three boys with me and they were acting like monkeys escaped from a zoo. I saw the Dance Sweatpants and they are very sedate looking sweatpants - a nice, simple design. If you are in the market for expensive comfy sweats you might try those. They looked bulkier than the Feel Good pants but that could be because of the pocket. For the commenter who wonder if the pockets might bulge out - I did find a photo that confirmed your suspicions. My store still had lots of marked down Feel Good sweats left so I don't think the sweatpant market is there, at least not in Newport Beach, CA. They also had lots of full price Wear With All pants.
I saw the God awful Too Cool Tunic. You will die at the price, make sure you swallow your soda....

 
 
it's...wait for it...$98!!! Outrageous for a design I'd expect to see at Walmart or Sears. It also comes in black.

I also saw the  Go With The Flow Tank. It's as blah in person as the photos and the straps are a different material than the body. They are also quilted. It's a rather, to me, old fart design detail.

I was at my store today too - they had the new tunic and I also was shocked at the price. I tried it on "for fun" and it was a horrible sloppy mess. Yuck. Tried on the dance sweat pants. Comfy and pretty nice but certainly nothing I'd spend big bucks on so that was a pass. My "Dailey Method" studio sells a limited selection of lulu and when I went for class today they were having 20% off of everything: got a run energy pullover in white with faded zap/sidewalk trim (love), grooves with bold blue/faded zap bands, the faded zap/sidewalk scoop tank and the tiny white/grey stripe Y tank.

20% off? Lucky!!! I am looking forward to seeing the Devi pant and hoping for more tanks to show up.

Devi pant and Dance pant are both cute, though it would depend on the price. I'd probably wear them more for lounging around. I either wear pants or shorts, I don't currently do the warm-up pants thing.

That tunic is awful, and I see no practical use for it. I can't possibly see an athletic use for this, it must be something that would be more popular in Canada for waering on the weekend? I buy lulu to actually work out in; it needs to have a function.

The Go With the Flow Tank isn't bad, but I'd have to try it on. Pictures on facebook make it look more loose-fitting. A little loose is ok, but I don't want anything baggy for when I'm running.
