Back to the Future: Oasis Coming Back

A reader says she was told the color Oasis, from last fall, is coming back. Here are some photos of older things in Oasis:

Last fall's Bulerias Tank in Oasis

Here are Spring, Summer, and Fall 2009 color palettes:





Comparison of Oasis to Lagoon:

Oasis Deep V from Fall 2009

Lagoon Cool Racerback

They are both what I would consider "aqua" but Oasis is bluish and Lagoon is more greenish.

Could the lightest blue be Cool? I think the orange color is Alarming. I'm not a fan of Oasis (on me, that is).

I had heard in the store that both Oasis and Alarming were going to be made in some tanks. We'll see if it's true. Not really a fan of the new grooves that are coming out. Too many colors in the quilt.
I got my cirlce mesh CRB in black today. I love it. It is in the washer already. I can't wait to wear to spin class and to Bikram.

How does Oasis look compared to Lagoon?

I saw on FB someone was able to add an Oasis CRB to their cart by accident right around the time of the big upload, but then it disappeared soon after.

@Luvlulu:
wore my circle mesh CRB to crossfit this week and loved it as well. i got the white too - deciding if to keep or not due to the fact that is is somewhat sheer. But the white will go with a lot and is good for summer and the circle mesh is sooooo cool.

@pilatesmom:
Can you see your skin through the white circle mesh? I was worried about that. I agree the white would be great for summer and go with everything. I wore my white define this morning for the first time. Still not a fan of the new zipper but decided to get over it. Once it is zipped I don't even notice what zipper is on there. One of the educators at the store told me they have had some zippers break and need to get fixed so she thought that's why they went with a more sturdy one. Did you ever get the pig pink define? I hated pig pink at first but now I like it.

Anyone know what has happened to the Run: Swiftly SS or the Astro Pants (other than the ones in Loot)? I searched the Run: Swiftly SS on the Lulu website and it says sold out. What's interesting though is there are a color I don't think I've ever seen before (Ocean Blue) and surprise, surprise there's Alarming and Heathered Oasis! Is this a "hidden" hint of what's to come?

@anon 719-- regarding the colors for the swiftly - that is all the old colors -- ocean is from last winter i think -- there were wunder unders with black and ocean as well as hoodies -- i dont think it was a full color run though --Often once an item runs out -- if you try to pull it up, it will appear with all the colors that item was offered in -- even though all colors are sold out --

I love oasis! I bought a power y in loot a few weeks ago in that color and I am so happy with it. I'd love some grooves to match it, but I don't think I like the big quilting blocks. I just started LLL in May so I've missed out on a lot of great styles.

I know one of the Blues is called River Rock!!!

Does the links to the new hidden items still work? Just wondering as GEC says it shouldn't have happened and it was fixed on the web site.

I don't think the lighter color is Cool? Cool is very pastel and this is darker than that. It looks like Toothpaste or Aruba or something like that.

The hidden pages don't work anymore.

I love my circle mesh CRB, too. I think I could be happy with a workout wardrobe of them in different colors.

The colour of Oasis here looks very understated. I have the Athletic Deep V in Oasis and in real life the colour is much richer and more to a deep green with blue undetones.

I like oasis too --its a very pretty rich color --but what is with the rehashing of the colors-- potion pig oasis alarming --

I do love my mesh CRB too -- i wore it on the beach for my kettlebell workout in the steamy humid jersey weather and it was great! I think a coal one would be great!!

momof5 said...

I think one of the quilted colors might be marshmallow-- looks similar -- its a pretty color!!

Wish they could make some tops/tanks in Chili Red or a Deep Red.

@Luluaddict: Where do you get your photos and graphics from? I have tried saving photos from the LLL site and it never works right. Are you pulling them from the product alerts and FB page? the older color palettes are very handy, too. Second hand items from eBay sometimes get "labelled" the wrong/inaccurate color. If I plan to resell, I like to know the exact product style and color... especially for the truly devoted and discerning Lulu-buyers ;)

Love the blog. Always a treat to read and research from. Any tips on photos and older styles, would be greatly appreciated!

LuluAddict said...

Rehashing of colors isn't necessarily bad but to come out with a fall palette that's nearly identical last fall seems a bit lazy. They could easily resurrect colors from a couple of years ago. That being said, I would love for Bold Blue to come around again.

I don't know why they don't put out a nice dark red. I would also love Anise green to come back. That hasn't been around in something like three years.

This is a little off topic, but any idea if the new colors (pig, wish, citron) will come in the run swiftlys?

Zanna said...

Didn't they hire a new colourist recently? For those who has been wearing Lulu for years now, the bringing back of the same old colours will be a bit lame. It will be good if they introduced some new colours and bring back some of the old ones.

A nice dark red, like SCAB...gross name but it is scabalicious! Seriously the best Lulu red!

momof5 said...

I read on facebook about bleeding issues with the wish -- its such a pretty color!!

I heard you are going to get in trouble for posting these photos because they do not belong to you and you are not the photographer.
