More Pics of New Stuff, New Push UR Limits Coming and New Shirt - Run: Sunblocker Long Sleeve



I'm feeling too lazy to blur out faces and these ladies do a nice job of modeling the new clothes so I am leaving their pics as is. I think I am going to have to try on the Angel Blue Sun Salutation tank.

The Pearl District store in Portland has posted they have new Push UR limits. I don't have photos or color information but I will post as soon as I do. I know a Carlsbad educator told me they are expecting them in blue so I am very excited. Pearl District also posted they have a new running shirt called the Run: Sunblocker Long Sleeve. As soon as I have pics and information I will post.

That sunblocker shirt will go fast...can't wait to see it...

I am anxious to see the sunblocker. I am a big fan of spf clothing and swimwear, wear it for all outdoor activities. My main complaint is it is either too outdoorsy looking or too matronly. Would LOVE some hip spf clothing.

I called my local store and asked if they were getting the Sun Salutation tanks in today. She said, No, but they're getting in the new Push UR Limits in today in Angel Blue, Potion Purple, and another color which I forgot. I'm so excited because I like the Push UR limit tanks!

Thank you, Anonymous, for letting me know the colors of the new Push UR Limits. I wonder if they are solid colored or have contrasting areas. I can't wait to see them.

I like SPF shirt idea, can't wait to try it. I went and tried on the sun salutation in angel blue and it was OK, but I don't really like the stripes... I want a more feminine top, it looks too Nike to me. I also tried the Potion Purple scoopneck, I am not sure I like this colour on me. I didn't try the savage green, maybe next visit.

@pilatesmom -- how is the sizing on the free2b -- I received my modern tank today and took your advice and sized down and it fits perfect - thanks! wish they had more of these online as I really like this style!

Lacey said...

Luluaddict I saw the push ur limits tanks today in my store and they were solid in both angel blue and potion purple! SO cute. I also saw the sunblocker ls. In my store they had it in potion purple and angel blue with contrasting stripes down the sides of the abdomen. Most of the shirt is made of a new fabric that is supposed to block UV rays and there is some mesh-material for ventilation and sweat wicking. I also saw 5yr tees in angel blue and savage green.

@momof5: I went down one size in the free2b jacket and it is not even borderline tight/small. I say go down one size. My regular size was sloppy looking on me.

Momof5 said...

@Pilatesmom -- Thanks -- you are the best!

I hope everyone has a Happy Mother's Day!!

LuluAddict said...

@Lacey- Thank you so much! Solid huh? I think I will probably get the potion then. What store did you go to?

Lacey said...

@ Luluaddict: Honolulu, HI

The Sun Blocker LS is available through the GEC (US) in Angel Blue with Coal, White and Potion Purple (I think with white). I was told that it's made of a lightweight jersey with UPF and circle mesh. I was so curious that I placed an order, sight unseen.

I had also placed a phone order for the Free2Be in Angel and then received a message later in the day basically saying "call us back, it's not actually available, so we canceled your order". When I called them back I was also told that the people on FB who said they placed an order could not have possibly received their order because none of their warehouses have ever received this product. So I directed the educator to the photo on FB of the Angel Blue jacket that someone posted. Lulu really needs to give their educators a plausible explanation to give customers - if they accidentally released a product before it was supposed to go to market, I wish they would just say so...it's not like I'm going to fall apart if I don't get this jacket. Sorry for the rant...

@ LuluAddict - your blog is great! Your candid commentary keeps me updated on all matters Lulu =D Thanks!

SoCalRunner - do you know if the LS has a high or a scoopneck? Also, how much does it cost? Tx for the info, I'm trying hard to picture what it looks like!

lmhagood said...

SoCalRunner: You are brave Girl! Keep us posted on this sunblocker shirt - I'm so curious! :)

houndlvr67 said...

I remember the educator that sold me the Free 2 Be Jacket. I think that she must have been new, and let the jacket go before it being officially released. I ordered it last Monday and got it last Saturday.

SoCalRunner, the GEC is full of their typical smoke and mirrors bullshit and they are outright lying to you because the angel jacket is sitting upstairs in my closet!

Anonymous said...

@Anon the LS has a normal collar (just like the Run Swiftly tops), in fact, it looks like it would fit pretty snug around the neck. I actually didn't like the look at all; very Nike-ish. I didn't even bother trying it on because it definitely wasn't my style.

SoCalRunner said...

@Anon 12:52 – The Sun Blocker is $68. I don’t know about the neckline, I didn’t think to ask. But I asked about sizing since I don’t like my shirts too fitted and I was told it should be tts and not fitted like the swiftly tops.

@lmhagood — I live near a smaller Lulu store, so they don’t always get the new stuff, but at least I can return my phone/online orders that don’t work out... so I’m not really brave =D If I get my order before photos start showing up on FB, I’ll post a link to some pics.

@houndlvr67 — I hear ya! I get that they have to feed us a line re: product availability because that’s how their marketing ploy works, but once the cat’s out of the bag, why not just admit their mistake and just tell the truth? I was told they “don’t even know if it will be released because it still needs to go through QA” and when I directed him to the photo on FB was told: “maybe a sample was released”. Seriously.

pilatesmom said...

@SoCalRunner and others. I also have the angel blue free2be sitting in my closet upstairs. I'll be wearing it tomorrow so GEC is not being totally honest.

I was at my store today and they didn't have the sun salutation tank but did have the half moon jackets and crops in angel blue and black. I just purchased the angel blue define, which I love and when I saw the angel half moon it just looked way to similar. Still, I tried it on with the matching crops. The jacket is very short. It is shorter than the shape which was pretty short to begin with. Because of the length, I didn't find it flattering. I also wasn't blown away by the crops. But, truth be told, I should never try on fitted bottoms when I have PMS as I always feel like a blimp. I thought the rise was similar to wunder unders so not particularly "low rise" as described.

pilatesmom said...

...and speaking of angel blue (one of my favorite subjects), i got a product notification for the new messenger gym bag which we know comes in passion, potion purple and black - with the photo of it in angel blue (although the store didn't get it in angel blue). So, perhaps that is coming.

Has anyone seen the namaste wrap in potion purple in and US stores?

Lacey said...

The potion purple sunblocker l/s has lime stripes down the side. I personally did not care for it. Anon @ 2:17 described it perfectly as Nike-ish. It looks very functional though and could be of use to someone who runs out in the sun often.

Anonymous said...

Lacey is right, it definitely looks functional, but unfortunately not very attractive. I was a little bummed because I live in CA, run outdoors constantly, and have extremely fair skin..I'll be sticking to sunscreen for now.

When I tried to purchase something a few months back the GEC said they couldn't sell it yet because the stores haven't received the item. I don't even remember what it was now. I think that is what is suppose to happen. The stores should have it in inventory and then the GEC can sell it via phone sales. I think there are a few at the GEC that don't know the process and sell it anyway. I was told at the time that their warehouse was instructed not to ship the item even if an order came in. It sounds like they are being very consistent in this. I too tried to order the Free 2be in Angel and in Heathered White and was not successful. This was before they posted the facebook message. I'm in no hurry to get it, I just bought a ton of new stuff, so I'll wait until it hits the store.

I saw the Sunblocker top today in the store and kind of liked it. I don't run outdoors or at all but if I did I would get it. It was gathered on the chest area on each side to give a interesting look and a few inches down the middle of the back, like the I just want to run tank. The white was too sheer, didn't care for it in potion purple with the lime stripes, but did like in angel with grey contrasting stripes. I may get it, but haven't decided yet. I didn't care for it on the hanger but once I tried it on it felt and look great.
