Product Alert - NEW! Bliss Tank, Biker Groove Short with colored bands,& Hats


 Bliss Tank
 Is this the mysterious new tank someone spotted in their studio earlier this week? It certainly looks similar to how she described it - flow y, ruffles, etc. This just popped up in my Lincoln Square (NYC) product alert. It looks kind of like the Rhythmic tank. I'm not digging the bulky elastic band under the bust and I wouldn't call anything with spaghetti straps moderate support.

Bliss Tank Product Description:

  • Flow through your Asanas in this loose, moderate support, flowing tank
  • Made with tencel® which is derived from wood pulp and is wicking, soft and light
  • Power luxtreme™ top is light weight with high LYCRA® fibre content, and inherent wicking performance to keep you dry and comfortable
  • Adjustable straps allow you to customize the fit right for you
  • Mesh bra construction with built in pockets for removable cups

Biker Groove Short in Angel Blue/White Lycra Stripe

Yay! Lululemon is offering the biker groove shorts with colored bands. I wonder if these are reversible. I would think so. My black ones are reversible but the static charcoal ones weren't. Does anyone have both the new Zoom Knee short and the Biker Groove? I wonder if the different fabrics justify the big price difference, $74 to $48. I'm glad Lululemon is bringing back these longer shorts.

I could really get on board with hats that match my lululemon tanks and jackets. I forsee a humungous collection developing if they keep making these. I wore my potion purple one today with my Majestic Cool Racerback and felt super coordinated. I know a lot of women at my gym wear hats to work out in. Until I bought Lululemon hats I always found them too hot for indoor exercise but Lululemon hats are very breathable. 

I really like the new baseball cap design. I have a couple of the older Distance hats and they were just too shallow for my head - more like a beanie. This cap is just right. It is also adjustable in the back. I am outside a lot for my kid's baseball and soccer games so my hats get a lot of use. If the hats show up on tomorrow's upload, I suggest you get one right away since they sell out fast on-line and in the stores. Keep up the great work on the hats, Lululemon!

My product alerts said they came in white, black, coal, passion, angel blue, and potion purple.

 Flight Running Bonnet in White

The Flight Running Bonnet is back in black, white, coal, and passion/lime plaid (buzz light year plaid). I've also seen a photo of a new one in Passion.

Flight Running Visor - back in black, white, coal, lavender/lime foxy plaid

The Bliss looks interesting. Sorta of a not as boobalicious version of the Hot Yogi tank. Please post a try-on review if you see it in store!

I, too, am excited about the hats. This may be TMI- but you have a problem with them getting stinky? I run in mine- ALWAYS- rain, snow, sleet, shine- and once the smell sets in even after multiple washing it is still a bit funky. I suppose that is an excuse to buy more hats ;)

I am praying that the hats go online tomorrow!! That is all I really want :)

The hat looks great (glad it is adjustable!). The tank looks like maternity top to me...

Momof5 said...

The bliss is not the tank i saw -- it was more of a bra over a hot set bottom with the y straps in the back -- and the ruffle was down the center in between the bust not underneath and the ruffle was piped in charcoal as well as the straps being charcoal -- darn!! ill have to keep looking!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the biker shorts --- Finally -- I wonder what other color combos these will be in --

Can anyone comment on the difference between the baseball hat and the flight visor -- as far as running in them goes?

I'm hoping the hats go online tomorrow, too. And the free to be jackets in potion purple. I get so frustrated seeing all these Canadian stores (and the Canada GEC) receiving product in that I can't obtain. I was upset the Lux hoodies went up on the Canada side last week and not the US side, too. More stuff for US, I say (I'm not sure where everyone is from). :)

LuluAddict said...

@ CJRun - I checked all my hats and they are not stinky but I don't run or workout in them. I haven't washed them yet but my black one needs it. I am glad they say they are machine washable. I mostly use them to get away without blow drying my hair for the day. My hair is kind of thin on top (thanks for that fine, thin hair gene mom) so I have to cover up whenever I am outside otherwise my scalp gets sunburned.

I agree with Pilatesmom, the tank does look a bit like maternity wear.

@momof5 - FWIW, when I tried on the visor last time it was out, I was awful tight on my head. However, I found the Running Bonnet fit pretty well where a lot of people found it large.

pilatesmom said...

What are you all hoping for in tomorrow's upload? Me: running baseball cap in angel and potion, 5yr T in angel and savage, nameste coverup in potion, free2be jacket in potion,,,and,,,something new and amazing that none of us have heard/seen anything about!
PS: got my angel blue ribbed tank in the mail today and love it!

Luvlulu said...

@Luluaddict - Did you wear your new Potion Purple define jacket today to match your hat? I bought one last week and just wore mine today for the first time. I got alot of compliments on it. I am waiting for the visor to hit my store, unless it shows up online tomorrow.

@pilatesmom

Do you have any of the modern racer tanks? I'm just curious how they compare to the new rib tank that you just received. I like the feel of the modern racer more than the cool racerback, but not near a store to try on the new rib. Thanks! -Angela

Momof5 said...

I am hoping for some modern racers in the new colors -- and the hot yogi shorts -- as well as the new astro crop colors -- but please please please -- release bottoms that have matching tops and vice versa-- i feel like the website is piecemealed!! Grrrr!!!

Good question for pilatesmom, anon -- also is the Org rib tank thick or light? I also like the modern racer better than the CRB!

cosmoqueen said...

Is the baseball cap the same material as the flight running bonnet? How does it compare in terms of fit? Thanks.

i went to my store today (Burlington, MA). Looks like a bomb went off on the Half Moon table. The gals at the store said they fold everything and it's in shambles minutes later. My store only received the angel blue and black/white half moon patterns. When I was there, not much was left. No potion purple to be found except in a Power Y. Ha!! Got mine in Loot last week, baby! Free 2 Be in Black, Heathered Charcoal(?) and Passion. Lots of Passion, actually. Shorts and skirts were on clearance for $29. Dance Sweats for $54. Seriously? $54 for sweatpants marked down from what? WTF? Moving on...one Push UR Limits left in Passion in Sz 10. My store = lacking!

when do you all get your "upload" updates? i'm on the east coast and i don't receive anything until the late afternoon. i'm online and checking email all morning long. is it based on Vancouver time or whenever LLL feels/can send out the update? Thanks, in advance!

@anon 5:44pm - I also just received my Angel blue ribbed tank today. I have 2 modern racers and love them. I don't workout in them because they are cotton but love them for just hanging out. The ribbed tank is much thicker and clings more to your body. I love the color but don't really love how it is much more form fitting. I love the color but I'm thinking I may return mine and wait for them to come out with angel in the modern racer. I also didn't like how it had a seam running right down the middle of your back. I didn't notice it in the pictures but I really didn't like that. Still deciding if I should keep or return. I really like the modern racer better, it has a more feminine look to it, not as sporty as the ribbed.

I am hoping the ribbed tanks will be uploaded to the CDN site tomorrow. I have one in charcoal and would love to try the blue and/or purple. I love how this tank is ribbed on the outside but soft and flat on the inside. It is very thick material though.

@ anon re: upload - Lululemon starts uploading the new items to the website around 8 am pacific time. Watch their facebook site for people to post about new items. The emails follows hours later and sometimes things are sold out in your size by that time.

LuluAddict said...

@cosmoqueen - the baseball cap and the flight running bonnet are both made of the swift material. However, there are no mesh panels in the baseball cap like there are in the bonnet. The bonnet is a bigger hat (will cover more of your head) but I think they are similar in circumference. The running cap is adjustable but the bonnet is not. I like them both.

Lacey said...

Luluaddict I saw the bliss tank in my store today, and I did not like it all---it was super poofy around the waist area and made me look like I was pregnant. Plus I thought it looked cheap, like something I could make myself. lol. I also saw a run:energy SS tee today in angel blue! The neckline looked like coal wee stripe. Super cute!!!

pilatesmom said...

@anon: the ribbed tank is pretty thick/substantial. It is more fitted than the modern racerback. I took my normal size in the ribbed and went down one size in the modern.

My local store is also Burlington, MA and I agree that they are super lacking in stock. I was just there Tuesday morning looking for the half moon crops and they did not have them, get home and 3 hours later get a product notification that they are in the store---aggghh!

On another note, I ordered the Zoom KNee Length shorts when they came out and returned them the next day. They are made from the same luxtreme as the other run crops and i did not find that flattering combined with the knee length. I have longer legs and the short hit my knee cap, not above it like my Globe Trots. They were not worth the $74 and I am anxiously waiting the Biker shorts!

lmhagood said...

@ Lacey: you saw a run energy SS in angel blue? I would love that! Despite the low v-neck, I really love this top and have bought 4 since they've come out, but I would LOVE another one in angel blue one!

Momof5 said...

SO BUMMED-- UPLOAD STINKS -- no hats, no matching savage, no biker grooves, no hot yogi shorts, no new modern racers -- BLAEH!!!

on that note -- Ruelala is having a sample sale on Zobha on Sat -- they are generally half off --if anyone is interested

Nicole said...

Not at all a fan of the visor, but I sweat like you wouldn't believe when I run and sometimes it's helpful to have a good, breathable hat. Have yet to see/try on any of Lulu's hats. Will harass my store when I head there on Saturday!

Anonymous said...

I bought the baseball hat in coal yesterday at my local store and LOVE it. I am hoping the visor shows up soon. I did not like the fit of the bonnet, but hope the visor fits better :)

Lacey said...

@Imhagood: Yes my store had the run:energy SS in angel blue! I picked it up instantly, it is so cute! I was sad that it wasn't in the upload today, because I know it would sell out fast!

LuluAddict said...

@ momof5la - RE: Zobha at Ruelala - Do you think the Ruelala sale will have the bottoms - pants and crops - at 50% off? The Zobha site itself only marks down tops that low but never the pants.

Momof5 said...

@Luluaddict -- the last time they had the sale they had a pretty good selection of tops, bottoms, pullovers and jackets- I got the Kate pullover for 29 in white, and the Black audrey tank $29) as well as the black essential pants that I ended up returning because I didn't like the fit as much as Lulu -- But I love the Kate Pullover and the Audrey Tank -- What I liked is they offered tops that had matching bottoms and normal colors not picked over colors -- I might try the shorts if they offer them -- you should try the kate pullover -- its a nice lightweight piece

Ruelala accepts returns also and before they would give a store credit but now will credit your card

I would definitely make sure you get in quick though because stuff sells out like crazy!

mollywaffles said...

I think I like the looks of the baseball cap better than the running bonnet. I currently run with a Columbia baseball cap that is made of some lightweight moisture wicking material. Would like to have another lightweight hat in a different color.

lulumom said...

Thanks LuluAddict! I saw your post on the new baseball cap in potion purple and just ordered one from GEC! My local stores didn't have it and didn't know what I was talking about. I can't wait to get it. I know the travel pooch is not for everyone, but I have one (in potion purple) so it will be perfect with the hat this summer!! Taking it to Hawaii with me. :)

I got the Bliss Tank today and I LOVE it! Super cute for workout and/or with jeans. I saw a girl a the store buying it to wear on a date tonight. Came in lots of colors - I got a slate gray.

Anonymous said...

I love the Bliss tank! I love it so much, I bought it in 3 colors! (Purple, Angel Blue, and White with Coal Wee Stripe) This top can definitely double-up as a workout wear and a going out on the town type of top.

My store also received the Sun Salutation tank, and I loved that too! Unlike the Swift or the Push UR Limit, this is made of a lighter luon that hides my flaws well!

Dori said...

I got the baseball cap in grey and I LOVE it. I have a tiny head and most hats are huge on me (cough, bonnet). This is the only one that is perfect! I love it and can't wait to run in it and just use it for weekend errands!
