Today's Lulu Shopping Trip

 Run: Energy SL
I went to my other local Lululemon today. I went with the intent of scoring some markdown items but I ended up getting a Run: Energy SL in lavender. I have the I Just Wanna Run in Lagoon but I think I like the fit of the Energy better. The back of the Energy is definitely much more flattering and hugs your curves. The Energy ran large but not as large as the I Just Wanna Run. I could have gone with my size but I went down one size so the back fit a little snugger. I'll have to decide whether I am going to keep my I Just Wanna Run now. I don't love the lagoon color on me. However, summer is coming up and the silverescent tops are awesome for hot weather workouts so I'll wait until it warms up and see how much I wear the IJWR.

I Just Wanna Run

I tried on the Flashback jacket and totally liked it. I thought it was really cute but I didn't want to spend $98 on a sweat jacket. I'm just not that big of a jacket person.

I saw the new chevron-striped Modern Racer. It doesn't do much for me. The stripe pattern reminds me of clothes I had back when I was a kid in the 70s. I also don't like the dull gray background. If it had brighter colors, I might like it better.

My store had Principle Jackets marked down to $49. I was so tempted to get the coal gray one but I know I wouldn't wear it as much my black one.

I was hoping to see the Namaste pants marked down to $29 but they were the same price as on the website - $54. The store had a big pile so I'll keep waiting.

I saw the new Mynah jackets and pants. They were cute enough, but I didn't bother trying them on since I'm not in the market for a new luon jacket or striped pants.
My store also had a bunch of running shorts and skirts marked down to $19. They were a total deal but they are so short I would never wear them.

Love your blog. What do you think about the running shorts and skirts with wonder unders beneath. I am thinking about this as an option. The shorts/skirts are cute but way too short for me to wear them by themselves.

On really cold days this spring, I've wore my Run: skirts layered over my Empower crops II to Nordic Pole Walk 6km. I think it looks great!

I agree the run energy SL is more flattering that the I just wanna run. I have the run energy in both the passion and grey with the "breath deeply" on it: I know a bunch of people on the blog were dissing them but I think they're cute and I get loads of compliments whenever I wear them. Wish my store had those deals on run shorts, wow! .

I would kill if my store ever did a deal on the shorts or skirts...I always seem to have to buy them at full price..:(

Which store had the skirts for $19? My home store is Glendale, btw...thanks! I am looking for a run skirt that has pleats, not the new one they just came out with and I'd definitely buy a run skirt for $19!

@ Sparky - It was the Irvine store. The skirts and shorts were size 8 and up and the pleated ones.
