Today's Upload - Lots of Goodies (And a Mini Rant About Failing Quality) (Updated)
The upload is still happening but I ordered the Aruba Brisk Run Ear Warmer for myself. It's so cute, how could I resist?
The Rubber Ducky Push UR Limits just showed up so I ordered that, too. This upload is taking a while but all the new stuff we've seen on Facebook and in the product alerts is showing up now. Must be the new colors are coming next week.
The Aruba and Ikat No Limits tanks showed up and the black was restocked. The Canadian side got these, too. I bought the Aruba last week and thought it ran stretchier than the Coal one. That doesn't mean you can size down necessarily but if you are a size 12 in Flow Y you might want to try the size 10 Aruba No Limit because it might work for you. I don't think I will get the Ikat No Limit at this time. I am going to wait until a second release of No Limit tanks and hope for a solid one in Sprinkler Blue or maybe Flush pink.
The Ikat CRB also showed up. I really like this tank and don't have a problem with it being made of mostly polyester. It looks very cute peeking out from under a black top.
The Black Run: Distance Pullover in black showed up. I know the cold weather people will be glad to see this top. I like the restrained design.
The Ikat Willpower Pullover showed up. I really liked this when I tried it on. I don't really have a need for this in the warmer SoCal climate so can't justify paying $118 but if it goes on markdown I will consider it.
The Raw Blue Studio pants also showed up. Just an FYI - the woman who writes the Lulumum blog posted a photo on Facebook of her brand new Raw Blue Studio pants unraveling:
She's only had these a week so there is no way it's due to wear and tear. The problem with failing quality seems to be getting worse not better. Last week they recalled the Concord Grape Distance Pullover and the week before they recalled the Purple Crush Speed Up Tanks for quality issues. Lululemon really needs to address these quality problems. They are getting very well known here in the US but when people plunk down $98 + tax for clothes they expect them to hold up. You may fool them once but you won't fool people twice. Lululemon built its reputation on quality and durability but the current management is squandering it away. It's incredibly disappointing. Unlike a lot of people, I'm not going to blame this on outsourcing. I have a lot of Lululemon items that are made in China or other countries from a couple of years ago that are well made but the newest batch of vendors is not up to par. Lululemon needs to hire some more QA people to keep on top of these vendors and bring the manufacturing standards back up to where they used to be. There is no excuse for this at all. I expect stuff like this to happen from junk I've bought at Walmart, not Lululemon. If you've had a problem with something you've bought, I urge you to complain to Lululemon long and hard. That is the only way things will change.
Lots of other goodies were uploaded - gray pique and reversible Wunder Under pants, the Endeavor Duffle, and lots more. What did you all order today?
