Mynah Pant/Crop, Flashback Jacket in Stores, Potion Purple Coming Back

Mynah Pant/Crop with Layer Me Bra
This photo was taken from today's upload. The pants look like they go with the new Mynah Jacket so I assume these are the new Mynah pant or crop. The bra is the Layer Me Bra from today's upload.
Mynah Jacket


New Items in Potion Purple
I wonder if Potion Purple is going to be on the Fall color palette. I just got the shorts in a Product Alert. The pants in the top photo were paired with the Layer Me bra in today's upload. There is also a new Zen wrap in Potion Purple. I don't have any Potion Purple but I think that is due to me not liking whatever tanks they made it in last year.

Flashback Jacket & Chevron Stripe Modern Racer Tank
This photo was used in a Product Alert for one of my local stores (Irvine, CA). It sure looks like the Flashback jacket so I think the jacket is coming to stores after all. The tank is the Modern Racer in Ash/Chevron stripe.

Did anyone order anything from today's upload? I am thinking of the Pep Tank in the Coal Wee Stripe but I want to try it on again. I didn't immediately love the Passion version I tried on the other day which is usually a telling sign for me. For some reason, it's not on the US side of the website but I know I can call the GEC. I also really hate to pay $52 for a tank that doesn't have a built in bra. What I really want is another Push UR Limit but will restrain myself until new colors come out.

I didn't order from today's upload, but I didn't need to since I came home a bag of goodies yesterday. I got the Free 2 be jacket (grey & black), coal define w/wee stripe, black RLW pullover, and black 5yr pima tee. I think I am set for awhile. I feel the way you do about the Pep Tank, that's alot for a top without a bra. I don't have a bra to even wear with it so I'd have to buy one just for the tank, not going to happen. I hope some new tanks come out in the potion purple. What's with the Mynah jacket and pant or crop, like you said it looks like a spider.

Anon @9:26...did you find you had to size down in the Free 2 be? I am getting different opinions and am nervous about ordering seeing I don't live close to a store.
Also, what is the opinion on potion purple...is it a beep purple or brighter?
thanks!

I got the Free 2 B in passion and the pep tank in passion to go with my new speed sports.

Help....anybody who tried on the Free 2 be....TTS or size down??

I ordered the Zen Wrap in potion purple because I had a hunch it wouldn't last long on the site. I went on an hour later just to see if it was still there, and they were completely sold out! That is crazy! I think the Zen Wrap in Angel Blue is beautiful - I bought it from my local store last week!

Me to @Anonymous! I am so glad that I decided to pull the trigger and order the Purple Zen Wrap! I was going to run an errand and think about it but I'm so glad I didn't do that! I got it to wear with my Beat the Heat dress for a reunion this summer :)

I ordered those new roll down run shorts...we'll see if they work out. I also caved in and got a push your limits tank and a scoop neck tank even though I am not a racerback fan. It's going to start getting really hot here in Texas and I'm thinking I just need to wear something that will keep me cool. Hopefully I don't look too scary in them! :)

Daydreaming here, but I really wish Lulu would come out with a short sleeve shirt in the light luon cool racerback material. I think it would be so functional, and cute, and you could wear them to work out in AND with a pair of jeans. I am not a fan of the Swiftly Tech shirts (and that's really the only short sleeve option right now available), because they seem so darn fragile - there's no way I could do boot camp in one of those tops and not get snags all over the place...

I just picked up a Free 2 Be yesterday at my local store and I love it. I bought it in black, but if I had the money I would have picked up a second one in another color. For those asking - whether to size down or not will depend on how you want it to fit. The cut seems to be a bit on the looser side (but not baggy like the devi jacket). The Free 2 Be fit me looser through the torso than the Fun Times did, but just slight so. I wanted to be able to easily layer other tops underneath so I was really happy with how it fit in my regular size. But if you'd prefer the jacket fit close / more snug through your torso, you'll probably want to size down. Hope this helps :)

Imhagood...you will have to let me know how the roll down shorts are, I looked at them and then couldn't decided as I am not sure I love the drawstring on the outside that makes a bow.

The Pep Tank looks like it has the circle mesh fabric in the underarm area -- which makes me nervous due to the stink factor -- Plus at 52 -- with no built in -- it's a lot!! The potion looks more like a fall color then summer -- but the blue is gorgeous on the Zen wrap! Did anyone notice the cute plaid shorts that are paired with the lavender and passion pep tank online -- they look cute -- I wonder when they will come out!

pilatesmom said...

I ordered the zen wrap in purple. Not sure about it but KNEW it would be a matter of minutes to an hour before that color was long gone and I've learned to buy now...return later (if needed). As far as the free 2 b jacket. I'm pretty much ALWAYS a 6 in jackets (fun times, shape, define, remix, gather together, wearwithall, etc) unless they have a relaxed fit and I'm going for a fitted look (i.e. I could wear a 6 relaxed in the stride and a 4 fitted in the stride). I tried on both the 6 and the 4 in the free 2 B. The 6 looked sloppy and the 4 looked/felt perfect. It was still roomy in the torso and arms without being sloppy - it is fitted at the hips. So, I would definately say size down because I wasn't like it was between relaxed and fitted but more like between sloppy and properly fitting (still with breathing room).

pilatesmom said...

Saw the mynah jacket in the store today. meh. easily took a pass on that one.

ojodeazul said...

Mom0f5... I have the passon shorts that are paird with the passion pep, hence why I had to buy the pep today. They are adorable!

Lacey said...

I didn't get anything from the upload today. I feel like the only one that doesn't care for the Free to Be jacket. I thought it looked sloppy and just too bland---especially for the $98 price tag. My local store has all of the new run shorts in the fun spring plaid colors...I thought that was going to be unloaded today. bummer. I'm starting to think that the remix lux, remix lights, and WWA's aren't going to show up...spring is ending soon and I'm not going to have a use for them when the hot summer rolls around! I don't know why lulu doesn't release them, it seems like they are in high demand and they could make quite the profit from releasing them.

Lacey said...

I forgot to ask Lulu addict---have you seen any pictures of the new flashback crops? My store told me that they have some new ones in some new colors! I think I'm going to go check them out later today!

LuluAddict said...

@Lacey - I haven't seen any photos of the flashback crops but I'll post one when I find it.

Anonymous said...

Anon 9:41 Yes I sized down. If I didn't it looked too baggy. As Pilatesmom says it looks sloppy. Especially with such an open neckline. I know everyone has an opinion but I would size down. I am a 6 in remixes and define but a 4 in stride and got the Free 2 Be in a 4.

Momof5 said...

@Ojodeazul -- Do you know the name of the shorts -- so I can call the GEC and snag a pair!! Thanks!

ojodeazul said...

Momof5 - They are the speed shorts with the passion/lime foxy plaid or the lav/lime plaid.

I also think that the lav/lim come in the groovy run short too!

Momof5 said...

Ojodeazul: Thanks so much!!

Pattybea said...

I didn't order anything, went to the store today and nothing trippin my trigger there either. Wow...very rare that there isn't something I like and buy...

Lacey, you are not alone. I find the Free 2 be too sloppy for me. I am not a fan of hoods that sit up and around your neck. Love the stride hood... The price is too high for me as well. There isn't much going on with this hoodie. I am missing the beautiful creative touches that made lulu so special.

Erin said...

Do you know if you can wash the zen wrap in the machine? Has anyone tried this on? I am petite 5"1 wondering if this would overwhelm my frame? Any help would be appreciated!!! Love your blog by the way. :)

Anonymous said...

Lacey and Pattybea, I agree, I'm not a fan of the Free2B jacket. Nothing special, another french terry jacket for $98 that will likely fade after a few washes. I ordered nothing from today's upload. I did buy a Zen Wrap at a store already, but I plan to return it. It seems from the FB page that the wraps are already starting to pill after the posters wearing them just a couple of times. Also, do I really want to encourage the lulu insanity of putting out a sweater wrap in the spring? I would much, much rather see the remix lights, a lot more pima tees (passion? lavender? etc), and a decent light run jacket with an adjustable hood.

Nicole said...

I really wasn't that crazy about the pep tank. I WANTED to love it, but don't have a non-racerback sports bra apart from my Ta Ta Tamer (which doesn't work with this tank) to wear underneath it and have it look ok. That's why I prefer the Push Ur Limit tank in that wee stripe pattern.
And again, I've got to get that chevron shirt on me!!
I doubt those mynah crops would work on me but curious to try them on.

ojodeazul said...

Nicole..why doesn't the ta ta tamer work under the pep tank?

ellesmommy said...

I bought the Free2Be in my usual 8, but after thinking it over, I went back to try on the 6. The 6 worked better for me. I am an 8 in pretty much everything else Lululemon. I got Gray/Passion, and I particularly like the color contrast. But the Potion Purple looks cute in the photos, too. I actually think the slightly open neckline is what really makes this hoodie different--in a good way!

Hi everyone, I have been waiting for weeks for the run roll down shorts in potion purple and black to come out, the alerts have been out but one seems to have gotten them and they sold out many weeks ago after only being on for a hour-does anyone know if they are coming out? I sure hope so, I have been waiting forever!
