New - Run: Reflection Pullover , Inspire Jacket, Flash Dance Tight, & Other Pics

There is a new pullover made of the swift material. It looks a bit short and boxy, like the Run With It Jacket to me. I'm also not a fan of the opera glove length cuffs:




  • Stay in the spotlight with this technical pullover
  • Swift is wicking, quick drying, light weight and breathable with 2-way stretch & a Durable Water Resistant finish
  • Reflective swift panels have reflective yarns woven in for safety when in low light
  • Mesh venting in high sweat areas
  • Thumbholes keep your sleeve down, set-your-ponytail free keeps your hood up
  • Kangaroo pocket with secret secure pocket!
The artist drawing of the Run Reflection Pullover is not bad. I'll have to post more real life photos of it but I still think it is on the short side:




Great photo showing the venting under the arm of the Inspire Jacket:



For those of you who like True Religion Jeans or whose Luluelmon logo can't ever be big enough, the lab has made these cute organic ribbed leggings, the Flash Dance Tight ($98):



Another color I'd like to steal from the men's line:

Less than impressed with all of this -- the top is cute but is basically the same tech tee we have been seeing --

I really really wish some of these educators would size up -- those crops are way too tight!

I am also liking some of the men's colors. I really liked dahlia, and from the prod not, I noticed they had cardinal red. The women's side hardly ever has a nice red.

Sorry but does anyone really want 2 giant lulu logos right on their ass?
That does not look classy to me......

It's actually not circle mesh on the underarms of the Inspire Jacket! It is just holes/perforation venting within the Glyde fabric itself- not a different fabric. It has the same venting at the neck as well. Really cool jacket full of awesome features

I LOVE those jeggings, but HATE the giant lulu symbols on the butt. Not a fan of giant logos. Which brings me to a parallel I want to share. Remember when Coach bags were super thick strong high quality leather? They used to have a very small "Coach" logo on a tag. Then fast forward 10 years and the leather is cheap and they plaster giant "C"s all over their bags. . . is this the direction that lulu is heading? Lower quality? Giant logo?? On a separate note, I love that Run Personal Best top! Cute.

I love the tights and the logos on the butt. Too cute!

@ Stefani - Thanks for the correction on the venting under the arms. I updated the post. I really want to try this jacket on.

I LOVE those tights and TOTALLY LOVE the big ass lulu logo on the ass! They are awesome looking and I'll be getting them as soon as they're available in my store!!

momof5 - do you have running crops from lulu? if so, do you run in them? i've found that I must size down in order for them NOT to fall down when I run. They are so big in the waist. I think the run:crops look just fine on the educator. What makes you think they are too small? They are compression.

I tried on the run reflection pullover and found it unflattering and sort of comical looking. There are several large pleats at the shoulders and that coupled with the loose/cropped/boxy fit resulted in looking like i was wearing one of those superhero halloween costumes with the huge foam muscles built in.

Well to each his (her!) own right? Lulu makes lots of stuff to cater to lots of tastes - we don't all have to love it all!! Some pieces I love, some you love, and we are all happy - nothing wrong with that......
(Those tights tho - not for me.....)...and generally, seems like more wierd stuff from lulu lately, but .... whatever......

The pulling in the crotchal-area makes me think they're a little snug. Mine don't do that. I have run/done spin class in zoom crops, team spirit crops, and empower crops - and I run in the Spirit full length tights. I stay true to size.

i.e. here's a pic on facebook of crops that look like they fit perfectly - that do not have pull lines in the crotch region:

I'm pretty new to LuLu, and wasn't sure if the tights were a preview to eventually be in stores, or just a test/prototype...? Please let me know! I'd love it if the logo were smaller, but the fit of LuLu definitely would be worth it!
