Around Town Tote - Totally Cute!!!

How cute is this? It's the Around Town Tote. I don't have any size info but it's $68 so I suspect it's on the smaller side. Arghhh, Lululemon, I already have a bag fetish. Don't feed into it!  ;-)

I love your blog! I really enjoy reading it! Any idea of what the size of this tote is? I'm looking to fit a lulu tank and pants and water bottle (no shoes). Are these in stores yet?

I like the bag, it's cute, I ordered the pink gym bag that was on the website about two weeks ago, can't wait to get it in the mail.

I'm tempted to buy the new wunder groove crop pants. What do you think of them? I have one pair of the wunder under pants ( I got a date wearing them so I think they look okay!). I also have the groove pants but I find them not very flattering for me, I'm 5ft 5 and have them in a size 6 and regular length but for some reason I look bulky wearing them. Would you recommend the wunder groove crop pants and should I go to a size 4 if they are a roomier fit?

I don't know, but I don't find the around town tote all that special (and I'm a total bag-aholic)- it kind of looks like "pleather." Nothing really unique in the styling or in the function. I much prefer the move it messenger. Not crazy about the totally open top with just a snap shut either.

yeah i agree with pilatesmom. i love the move it messenger and have it sidewalk. the around town seems simple though, may be nice but i wouldn't pay $68 for it.

btw susan, i have the wunder groove crops and love them! wearing them right now actually. i stayed with my regular size. very similar fit as the wunder unders except slightly higher rise like the grooves

@Pilatesmom - The Move It Messenger is kind of big. I'm guessing from the price of this that it probably isn't super huge. I like it because its a simple feed bag style. Lululemon usually makes pretty nice bags with pockets for everything so I don't think you can go wrong with this bag.

@ Susan - I'm not a Wunder Under person but lots of people here are. You can also post a question on Lululemon's facebook site. Have you considered the Energize pant? I think they are super cute with that sassy pocket on the rear. I love mine. They are a little long but you can always have them hemmed.

Great thanks for the advice luluaddict and anonymous. I'll check out the energize pant, I hadn't heard of the pant before but will look at the pant on the website.

I am so upset that I did not order it this afternoon! It is sold out already? Does anyone know if Lululemon puts bags on their website first and then eventually sells them at the stores? Or do they replenish stock on the website? Any advice would be appreciated, I really wanted to get this one.

@anonymous above: it is totally random. sometimes it will come online first and in your store later. sometimes only online or only in your store. sometimes they'll have a small replenish online due to returns. You never know...

LuluAddict said...

I suspect since they went fast they might do a replenish eventually.

@annon: I know for a fact that the bag was on the website first, not in stores yet and not even at the GEC! So, I'm sure you will get another chance to buy it!

Thanks for the reassurance! I will keep an eye out for replenishment on the site. Does the bag look like it's made of fake-leather (for $68 it can't be real leather, right?) or is it nylon? I prefer nylon!

Seeing comments that the around town is huge....bigger than the large lulu shopper. The material is being described as waxed canvas...? Does not sound as nice as it looked...

I saw the comments too on FB that the tote is bigger than the large shopping bag. This tote must be humongous.
