Pics - New Colors -in Mynha, Half Moon, Sunblocker Push UR Limits, Free 2B JAcket

New Push UR Limits in Potion Purple, Angel Blue, and White
I wish these came with contrasting straps or mesh panel but the solid Potion is pretty nice. Wouldn't you know that the first time I order something from the GEC, my store gets the tank in the same afternoon. I might still make a trip down there today because they got the Sunblocker LS in and a baseball hat that I want to try on.

Half Moon Jacket in Potion and Static Charcoal Crops with Potion and Lime Accents


New Mynah Jackets and Crops
I tried on the Heathered Coal Wee Stripe Minah on Sunday. I really like the HCWE pattern but I couldn't justify getting a jacket to go with one tank. I really like the Potion version. The Mynah jacket fits very loose and is quite roomy in the torso. It's not a bad jacket but if I had to choose one, I'd prefer a Define.

Sunblocker LS Shirt in Potion Purple, White, Savage Green, and Angel Blue
These are made of some special sun blocking jersey. I was hoping it would be matte and not shiny but I really like the Angel blue one and must try it on.
Run Roll Down Skirt in Passion
This is the skirt my sister bought. This girl must be pretty petite because it hits her in the same place as my five foot nothing sister.
New Baseball Cap - I'm going to have to try this on
New Flight Running Bonnets in Lime plaid and Passion

Is it me or the model -but the mynah static and the static half moon are just very ill fitting and not flattering AT ALL --

I love the hats -- and the angel LS sunblocker though --

I'm with Luluaddict -- the Push UR limits would have been way cuter with contrasting colors

This is a side note -- this woman at my gym had on the cutest Lulu top yesterday and I have never seen it before -- it was hot pink top that looked like a poyer y bra with a contrasting potion purple bottom in the same fabric and design as the Hot Set with the adjustable side tie -- and to make it even more special it had the cutest little subtle ruffle down the front middle bra part ----it was piped with charcoal -- it was just really pretty and different and feminine! -- Does anyone have any idea about this one?

Do you think the woman had a power Y layer over another tank? I don't every recall seeing a hot pink and potion tank like that. It almost sounds like a dance strap tank or even a bulerias.

O.K...so I am really liking the look of the sunblocker tee...I need this in potion purple! Also, I am thrilled to see more run flight visors! I have a black one that I wear ALL THE TIME for running and bootcamp. It really is the perfect visor - cute on, fits my big head :) and is easy to wash and take care of. I'll be buying more of these for sure!

As far as the skirt is concerned - I've decided I will not be buying anymore Lulu skirts until the inside liner is improved. I have several Lulu run skirts, and, for me, the inside liner rides of terribly - drives me crazy! Love the look, but not the best as far as function (in my humble opinion).

Great update - thanks!

@ Imhagood - the visors also come in black and white. I didn't post the pic showing all of them.

@luluaddict -- no it was definitely one top -- and the power y part had the ruffles -- hmmm--ill have to stalk her at the gym and find out!!hahaha

I have to say, none of the new items really grab me. I agree with Momof5, the models are not really making the clothes look to great, sorry ladies it might just be the angle ( or the style ). I love potion purple but I will wait and see if other items come out in this colour.
I AM liking the Sunblocker LS BUT, I hate to say it- my local WALMART had an almost identical shirt in their Yoga line. same colour, same side accents except in a short sleeve AND only 25.00 $. I wouldn't buy it but it made me wonder where the design team is getting their ideas from?????????

@Imhagood: I'm with you on the run skirts. I run in skirts all the time, but none of them are Lulu because of the undershorts. I wish Lulu would put out a running skirt where the undershorts had a longer inseam (something like the inseam on the the reverse groove shorts), so they wouldn't be so likely to ride up.

LuluAddict said...

@ CJrun - what brand of running skirts do you use?

ChiRunner said...

@LuluAddict: I own a number of brands. The one I wear most often is the race belt skirt by skirtsports - it doesn't have any shorts at all underneath, so I can layer them over Lulu tights and crops (tights alone always leave me feeling a bit exposed - my bum is not my favorite part of my body).

Runningskirts.com also makes some cute ones that have worked well for me. They have some with shorts underneath and some without. And I have the Prima Skirt by InSport, which has attached shorts with an inseam the length of the reverse grooves.

ugh...all of this leaves me cold. I agree with Momof5 most of these photos are extremely unflattering. The new push ur limits--boring... The upside...not spending money on lulu for the moment...

Chelsea said...

The new stuff isn't doing anything for me either. I am just waiting until CRB's are uploaded in the new colors and for the Free 2 Be. I already have the passion one but I have found myself really living in it so I might go for the angel blue too. I like the potion purple but I'm just not sure I'm in love with it. There is something about angel blue that catches my eye every time.

Just got back from local Lulu - I bought the Potion Push UR Limits - nothing crazy exciting but it is a great staple and the color is flattering (I love dark and jewel tone colors on me) so a thumbs up on that one. Also, tried on the LS sun shirt - it's definitely cute but I couldn't justify spending $68 (I think) on it since I don't run all that much.

The potion purple reminds me of Barney. Could someone tell me if potion purple is the same colour? It may just be my monitor....

Debbie said...

Ha ha, yes, Purple Potion is Barney colored!

LuluAddict said...

@anon - Lululemon made another purple awhile ago- Jelly Bean - that is definitely Barneyish. I think potion is more jewel toned that bright purple.
