I went to visit the store in Manhattan Beach today and tried on a few new things but left with nothing. I actually ended up buying a shirt at Lucy. I'm hoping now that they've been bought by Vanity Fair their quality has improved. We'll see.
I see a few new things have popped on loot. The Run Track and Field Jacket was $99 at the store. I was tempted but still think it's a lot for the striped ones. The Commit tank was $39 and they also had the static gray striped one marked down. There were left over Run: Energy tanks for $39. The store had old Groove colors for $79. I also saw a few Define and Stride jackets for $79 (in Angel and Potion). There were a few of the older Run Recharge tanks marked down to $39. I saw the static wave stripe scoop neck for $39. I didn't notice the Gather Racerbacks marked down but $39 from $42 is not much of sale - why even waste the sticker? I didn't notice Journey jackets but they probably got shipped out to another store. There were no super bargains - everything was at the first cut of markdowns.
I tried on the Run: Inspire Pullover. I liked the pink one the best but the static black was nice, too. I don't really care for the bands on color on the upper arm, it gives the top a ski sweater look. I thought the fit was in between the Energy Pullover and the Hills Pullover. Not nearly as tight through the chest as the Hills but not as loose through the upper chest and shoulders as the Energy. Also, the only circle mesh portion is under the arms which is quite a change from the previous pullovers. I don't know how I feel about the power luxtreme patches of color, they seem to add weight to the top. Some people have mentioned they can feel the back zipper pocket rubbing against them so make sure to look at that when you try it on. I didn't notice anything but I tried the top on with Still pants that come up very high on me.
I tried on the Modern V-Neck Long sleeve in Classic Sport gray ash. I liked it but for $58 it's rather plain. I ended up getting a similar shirt at Lucy (the Precision Tee in a heathered navy that is cuter in person) that has a few more design details - like ruching on the sides and contrast seaming above the bust and across the back - that actually enhance and highlight the female shape (unlike the Modern V-neck!) for $42.
I've been dying to try on the Sage Twist pant but they had been shipped out to another store. I'm having the hardest time catching up with those! I would have liked to get a couple of the new mesh headbands but the store didn't have those so I ended up leaving with nothing. Anyway, I might visit a couple more stores this weekend or Monday now that I know there are new things on markdown. However, I can't think of anything I would get unless it was marked down to the $20 range. Maybe the Track and Field at $50-ish.
