New Items - Run: Energy Short Sleeve Shirt, Mynah Tank, Jump Start Gym Bag, On the Move Gym Bag

Run: Energy Short Sleeve Shirt
I am a big fan of Lululemon's short sleeve silverscent shirts. This one looks pretty cute except for the Lulucrombie writing on the front. It comes in solid black, solid passion, and black with writing. I am not a huge fan of black silverscent, though, because of the very obvious lines of silver that show. However, the silver hardly shows in the lavender, so that would be the one I would buy. I hope it comes in other colors.
So the new Mynah tank looks ok from the front - yet another spaghetti strap tank. I'm not sure what it's made of but I'd guess luon, luon light, or luxtreme, or some combo of all three. I'm not sure I like the lines on it but I'd have to try it on. However, the back of the tank is kind of yuk...
I do not care for the elastic band at all. It looks cheap and like something from a toddler outfit.
Mynah tank colors - white, passion & white, passion, black

The Namaste cover up actually looks decent in this photo. I still don't like the short sleeves, though.

Jump Start Gym Bags - $78

On the Move Gym Bag - Different!

Classy Classic Gym Bag - I like the textured black one

I got this photo from the Saskatoon store FB page, so call the GEC and have them send it to you. You don't have to wait until it comes to the website or your local store.

Is anyone else getting tired of the same colors over and over in slight redesigns --

Am hoping the Run Energy SS comes out in other colours other than the current colours. I guess its a trend nowadays that Lulu sticks to the same colours for a whole month. I already have something in Lavendar and Passion and don't want anymore of that colour. Sometimes I wish they would tell us upfront what is coming out so that we know we can hold out for certain colours/designs. But we all know that is not going to happen.

As for the Mynah Tank, I want to like it but I also don't like the elastic band at the back. The front looks good but probably suitable for small chested women?

Pearl District says that they have new jackets in Luon Light? Wonder how they look like.

Zanna said...

Pearl District just posted some pictures of the jacket with luon light. It's the Get it Started Jacket which was out some weeks ago. I guess they just got it.

I really like passion, that said... can we have some more colour variety... I hate how they make 40 different items in the same 2-3 colours.. and what about reds and some more earthy tones?!
I do like the ss, but I would like some different colour choices.

More items that look more suitable for tweens and college age women. Pass...

Back to the Castle Show/ lulu connection - tonights episode was a repeat and Becketts bag in the end was the Around Town tote in black -- the wardrobe girl must have an obsession with lulu!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 8:05 pm - Oooh, more Lululemon on Castle? I'll have to keep my eyes peeled. Becket always wears such dark colors it'll be hard to spot.

The colours in stores change every 45 days into a new palette. It has been that way for eons. I guess it is so that you can make outfits since some people seem to like to do that.

Momof5 said...

@anon 9:52 -- yes -- we get that they like to rotate the same 3 colors every 45 days, just not in the same style and with no funky prints to mix things up -- or colors that actually go with each other -- and exactly we like to make outfits -- just not the same outfit over and over -we like OPTIONS!- so maybe you can take that back to your design team and start getting it right again! more technical -- less street -- more creativity -- less rehashing the same boring styles -- and bring back the tried and true favorites instead of experimenting ENDLESSLY with street wear!!!

LuluAddict said...

@Momof5 - Exactly. They would have similar colors but with a print using the colors to mix them up and definitely not so many solid colored pieces.

I think the current management and designers, for all their manifesto posturing and free classes, does not SWEAT in their own Lululemon clothes. There are just too many spaghetti strap and low cut tops being released to be practical for workouts. When I go to the gym, most of the ladies there are dressed to workout. They don't want to flash the gym when they do it. They want support for the girls. They don't want to be distracted by their clothes. And honestly, what is with all the short shorts? The Biker Groove made a brief appearance and that's it? They disappeared off the website quickly, so there is a market for longer, snug fitting shorts. Start making them.

i wish they would bring back some of the old tanks. i love the Tri Y tank and the dance strap tank - they came in so many pretty colors and patterns. i hate how i have to go on ebay to collect more.
