Sneak Upload!!! Things Are Going Fast!

Lululemon uploaded a day early for some reason. Of course I was out at spin class and shopping. If you haven't already gotten on line you'd better get because certain things are going fast.

Only the Canadian side got the Candlelight tank in the Multi State of Mind print but they can keep it. This is a print where a little goes a long way.



The Post Run Pullovers are already sold out in some sizes. The Very Violet PRP is gone already but Wish and Black are left. Order a black or wish just in case but I'd try the GEC and some strategic partners if you really want the Very Violet.

I tried the Live Simply Jacket on at the store today and I hate it. It has the awful sharp metal zipper that was used in the Flashback jacket. If you don't mind scratching yourself, go ahead and get this jacket otherwise stay away. (Oh yes, the fit was the same as the WWA)


I saw the Alpine Pullover at the store today but wasn't able to try it on since they only had size 8 and under left. It looked pretty nice and one woman bought it when I was there. These are going to go quickly.

Lot's of other goodies were uploaded - the new Push UR Limits colors, Cuddle Up jackets, the long sleeve Run Swiftlys (get them while you can) and more.  What did you get?

The violet Post pullover must have sold out (US) - it was online at least until around 11amPST. I bought one around 10:20PST and right now my order is "in progress." The wish blue one was not online at all when I bought the violet, so that must have uploaded later. I went ahead and got one of those just in case the violet comes up "out of stock" even though I've ordered.

I was so surprised when I found the just in email a bit ago. I just ordered the very violet cuddle up. I also want the wish/pocho push ur limits but I have a couple already, and I don't think that will sell out as fast so I'm still thinking about it.

I ordered a very violet post run pullover and the alpine tights in all black. I'm a teeny bit cranky b/c they uploaded the wish blue post pullover a few hours later and I would have gone with blue if it had been there with everything else this morning. I called but of course, it's too late to switch it. Oh well, more colors are always a possibility, but I didn't expect it to happen so soon after I ordered, lol.

Am I the only person that is not a fan of these new pictures for the products? The poses are a little less stiff, but in turn I feel like on some of the items you can't see the product as well. And I *hate* the lighting.. the bright white backround is terrible!

But there are SO many good uploads! All I could afford (sniff, sniff) was the coal earwarmer to replace the black one that I settled for and ordered two weeks ago... oh well.

ellie said...

I ordered the earwarmer too - in the purple (violet?) color. That's all I really need. I've ordered so much Lulu lately it's crazy!
I agree about the new photos - I'm not really a fan. It's fun to see the clothes in motion, but the poses are weird and the lighting seems really amateur. I think the photos you find through facebook and online are SO much better. I actually go to you to look at the new stuff now more than Lulu's own website! I like seeing how the clothes look are normal people - it's much easier to imagine how they'd actually look on me, since I don't live near a store.
Keep up the good work! :)

I'm not a fan of the new photos either -- was so much easier to see the products in the old photos...

I am a bit peeved that i bought the dash tights now that the alpine tight is out.... Wish they would upload all their winter running line together!

Megan said...

Alpine pullover - love it. Really cozy. Definitely a bit snug through the arms and a tad puffier in the pouch area... but in black it's still very slimming. I love the material and the hood! So warm and cozy but the circle mesh underarms is fantastic!

Alpine pants - extremely snug - the waistband doesn't have a lot of give to get it over your thighs. If you are between sizes, there may be a need to size up. Not sure if I am keeping these or my Dash tights (with the wish blue waistband)

Also picked up a LS Swiftly . . .in very violet. The very violet isn't very flattering on me normally, but in the swiftly material, it is really better on my skin tone. Also, I passed on it but the haze in the LS Swiftly was much better on my than the Stride Haze, color wise. The luon haze really washed me out.

I order the live simply Jacket before reading your try on report, i may regret it as i hate metal zippers and im sure they will be deathly on the kids faces at work (daycare teacher). My mom also surprised me with a cuddle up Jacket in black today, i had tried on the original Lilac on and though the fit was way to snug in the 12 but the black fits perfectly just like my scuba.
I agree about the multi splatter print, very cute in little doses such as the heart tank (?) but this over all print is digusting. i think it would be cute as a stride accent as well.

Megan said...

I passed on the wish blue cuddle up-I may regret this but those metal zippers scared me! I need to get more use out of my remix from last year!

Anonymous said...

I ordered a ton on stuff including the cuddle up in ALL colors (two or three will be going back but when I really can't decide on a hot item I just get them all and return the rejects), the alpine pullover in black (would have liked to see haze online), the post run pant (I have the fuzzy fleece pants from last year in black and they are sooo light and warm that I"m happy to have something similar in coal) and the post run pullover again in all three colors (at least one will go back and perhaps two but I knew these would go fast).

chelsea said...

i got the alpine tights in black, alpine PO in daze from the GEC and the wish post run PO.

i got the wish knowing it would sell out (after watching the VV go so quickly) but i really want the coal. figure i can hold off a couple more weeks to see since we are in holiday returns now. i feel the same way about the daze in the alpine. my guess would be that these would come out in more colors before the holidays but who the heck knows.

i almost got a cuddle up but i decided to wait. just hate those metal zippers and don't want to have anything to do with them.

i like the new models. i think its an upgrade from the headless bodies. it needs work, i agree, with the lighting and the position of the products but i am glad they are trying.

SV - what size very violet post run pullover did you order? I was expecting the upload, so I did not check the site until after work!! I missed out on the VV post run pullover, and I'm dying for one in a size 6. If you are interested in selling, e-mail me at lisa.trilliumapt@gmail.com

Thank you
Lisa

@jpalmac--No, I don't like the new photos either. I didn't mind the stiff poses because they showcased the clothing and the anonymity made it easier to visualize on myself. The new pictures have all random poses, and some of them unflattering (why would I want to look at someone looking down at her zipper, for example?)

I bought a Very Violet Post Run PO in a size 8. Size 2 and 6 were out of stock when I ordered. I kinda wished they loaded Wish Blue first, so everyone would have jumped on that, and I could have gotten a 6 in Very Violet. I don't like Wish at all, yet it seems to be a very enduring color this year.

ragazza said...

The only thing I'm debating is the awareness wrap in Wish. I missed out on the plum one in the first go-around and I still regret it because I think it could be cute. That being said I've spent a ton on lulu recently (3 dash long sleeves, dash tank, tights, long wunder unders) so I'm going to wait a bit to see if they sell out in any size (hopefully not a size 10, but if so I'll get black & v. violet) before pulling the trigger.

I'm also going to woodbury commons on Sunday, so I'm reluctant to buy before then in case I find any deals at the outlet! Maybe the beautiful plum awareness wrap has made it there (or at least personal best short sleeves & long sleeved swiftlys)... a girl can dream!

If I have time, I may go to natick on Saturday just to see the persimmon alpine pullover & accompanying tights in person. But since it's been in the 60s in CT lately, I'm reluctant to buy winter running items. I just kind of feel like this weekend is my last weekend to make shopping "journeys" because I don't want to drive 2 hours to battle it out with holiday shoppers who are also deal hunting.

I was just thinking I have come to prefer bold blue over wish

LuluAddict said...

Good point about the holiday return period. You guys who ordered the extra Alpine Pullovers and Cuddle Ups may be able to make a few extra $ re-selling on eBay.

Does anyone know if the upload next week will be on Thursday? Or, will they do a Wednesday again? I hope there are markdowns for Black Friday.

Anonymous said...

LuluAddict - WHAT is "Holidy Returns"??????? Do I have longer than 2 weeks to return things now?? What does this mean? Also, I bought a Run: Dash pullover about 10 days ago, does this count in the "holiday return" period?...whatever that may be.

Anonymous said...

The holiday return period started on Nov. 11th or 12th--you now have until Jan. 9th to return your items :)

RunningOnCoffee said...

After trying to call GEC last night (ok, only 5 min before they closed) their computers were down - so I called back this morning, around 11 EST to order the haze Alpine pullover. I worked some more, went to lunch, came back, and was surprised to see the lulu email! I'm glad I ordered over the phone since the haze alpine pullover never made it online (US, anyway).

I like the Dash Crops in coal/haze, but not urgent for them since it's still in the mid 50s here in NJ. Alpine tights look nice, but again - I don't know how often it gets cold enough to need super warm tights (ask me again in another month when it's colder and they're sold out :-p). I like the Cuddle Up, but have a Cozy Up, and probably shouldn't go through the trouble of ordering a new one and trying to sell my old one.

Apparently lululemon ships by tortoise to the east coast, so I'm still eagerly awaiting the Dash Pullover in static coal that I ordered a week ago.

Hi RunningOnCoffee,

I am ordering from Bermuda and it gets here after 3 days.

So weird that you get it longer than I do.

So disappointed that they did a surprise upload today. I wanted the very violet post run pullover but it was all sold out. So I purchased a blue one instead bc when I called my local stores (2) neither of them even heard of it.

I purchased a haze alpine po yesterday but I'm not in love with it but I bought it bc I think it's going to sell out fast. So I did an "insurance" buy. I'm in Norcal and the weather has been unusually warm so I don't know if I'll really need it.

Doe employees really get 60% off? That's crazy! For that, I might consider working there for the holidays or something...hahah! But, alas, I think I'm too old to work there =)

btw, I love love your blog. It's a great way for me to get my lulu fix =)

Running On Coffee, I'm on the east coast in Canada and ordering through the GEC takes forever! I just got my dash pullover today after ordering it on the 11th which wasn't terrible but I'm still waiting on my Energize pique pants which I ordered on the 4th! I will be returning my dash, though.... ordered a few pullovers to replace it :)

Canadian eh said...

1. That paint splatter print - Uck! WTF??!!

2. Hate the new poses. You can't even see half of the black Post Pullover because of the model's hair. And the lighting SUCKS

3. I bought a Boobs on a Wire bra (36C) 3 days ago and I haven't taken it off except to sleep. Best. Bra. EVER. Why oh why don't they make it in white or pink or a not dark colour??? Seriously LOVE this Bra!!

That splatter print sold out so fast.

Anonymous said...

does anyone know if they are planning on making a sweater like last years company sweater? that's what i'm waiting for!

those new poses suck! you can't see the product!

Stephanie said...

The Cuddle Up Jacket was up today on the website but is already gone!!

Also went into a store today and they had no cuddle up jackets or any of the new stuff yet :(

Glow said...

Instead of buying online, I just went to the store by my university, as they more or less got the same stuff in (besides the splatter print candlelight tank). I was intending to get the Post Run Pullover, but in person I found it didn't look as nice as in the photos. IMO it just looked like cheap fleece you could get anywhere, unlike the material of Alpine Pullover. Now if only they made a PRP design with the Alpine material! I ended up buying the Outward Bound pants instead. While I thought they looked unflattering in a lot of photos, they actually looked really nice on my figure (got black with very violet waistband). I put them on right after I bought them and they kept me warm all day. :) Hooray for warm pants that don't look dumpy.

how did they fit? i am unsure of what size to buy as i'm usually a size 2 but hear they fit tight through the butt and thigh.

Glow said...

Anon 10:32 pm
I am normally a size 4 and they were true to size for me. They are a form fitting pant but I did not find them abnormally tight in the butt/thigh area. Hope that helps!

I don't know why there is so much love for VV...I think it is awful!
and I think the new poses are nice...if you find you can't see somthing because of hair, pick a different colour, there are different models!

Lisa said...

ZOMG! I can't believe the cuddle-ups are gone in EVERY SINGLE SIZE! Doh! I'm going to a store on Saturday and praying they have some there! I wanted the black in an 8 for me the voilet in a 4 for my sister for christmas.

Rat poop...

The cuddle-ups were sold out in my store today. I managed to see them at another and they are exactly the same as the ist release. I passed the Wish Blue looked like it will fade in the wash.
