Today's Upload - What is Going Fast (or Gone Already)

Wow! The Ikat No Limit went really fast - it's sold out in the US.

I'm surprised that the Rubber Ducky Push is sold out in some sizes already. The Push UR Limits rarely sells out any sizes in the first day. I bet it's because people are dying for a color that isn't blue (Aruba) or purple (Purple Crush) or pink, black, or gray. Take a hint, Lululemon - start coming out with new colors like jade greens, browns, and ivy. That is why I got the Rubber Ducky. I don't have any yellow Lululemon in my closet. I had a couple of Macc N Cheese tops but I sold those. MACC is a pretty intense yellow so I am looking forward to this more muted shade.

The Distance Pullover is gone, too. I know a lot of people were waiting for this to show up. I hope you got one if you wanted one.

Where did those new Hustle tanks in Static Beachy Green and Static Purple Crush go? I know they were there when I left for the gym. They can't have sold out. I'm puzzled Lululemon is making so many of these. It's a design I really don't care for that much but I guess a lot of people do. I'd really like to see them develop more shell tanks that you can wear your own bra under.

 The Speed Skirts are all gone on the US side, too. OT - I saw a lady at the gym the other night with a Senorita Pink and Coal lululemon skirt, a Coal define jacket with a matching Static Coal and Senorita Pink Scoop Neck tank and she looked so cute.


I'm surprised the ear warmers are lasting this long. I thought the Senorita Pink ones sold out the first day they were uploaded.

Is Lululemon really taking tens of thousands of orders on upload Thursday? I think the order numbers go in sequential order and the difference in order numbers for my two orders 45 minutes apart is 21,200. It's a bit mind boggling.

Does the rubby ducky push ur limit remind anyone of a bumblebee, or is it just me?...

LuluAddict said...

I'm hoping the static coal and coal accents make it look less bee-ish. That reminds me, I need to get a matching headband.

Lulupetite said...

LuluAddict: do you think Lululemon will make any more push ur limits in size 2 besides the 3 colors they released a month ago (snorkel blue, faded zap and passion)? I noticed this last batch was not offered in size 2. I realize these new ones have the adjustable support band, but little people like me also benefit from the garment being smaller/ shorter all around. Sigh...

Just got back from the store, tried on the Ikat No Limit and plain black. I thought I wouldn't like it but I do! I had to size down to an 8 (usually wear a 10 in the Flow Y bra). They only had an 8 in the Ikat, I think it's a bit too wild for me. Thinking about getting the black online I hope it's still there on the Canadian side.

@LA: I saw the rubber ducky push, I really like it. Sadly, it doesn't work well with my Asian skin tone.

LuluAddict said...

@ lulupetite - Not sure if you are in Canada or US but there is size 2 in Faded Zap in the Push. Write to Lululemon and tell them you want size 2s. Check ebay for them - they do show up a lot (not sure about in size 2, though). Good luck.

Katte said...

Oh I forgot to add that I picked up the Concord Grape Movement Jacket at the store today. I wasn't wowed by the black last week but when I tried on the purple today I won me over (as an Educator said to me "Asians were purple so well!") The fit is very nice on my body shape. I did balk over it b/c I could get a thick and much warmer scuba hoodie for the same price. If a Concord Grape scuba comes out next week I'll go exchange the Movement Jacket for that. They haven't release a CG scuba have they?

LuluAddict said...

I haven't seen a Concord Grape Scuba yet. The dark purple Scubas like Lolo, Plum, and Dahlia have sold out fast.

I just ordered a Static Beachy Green Hustle tank and a grey/white No Limit Tank. I was thinking of the distance pullover as I love tech fleece, but its $118 and has no hood. I have 3 Alpine pullovers though, so I think I will pass.

Luna said...

I had a chance to stop by at my local lulu after today's online upload. Bought Light Grey Pique WU in the store, but really wanted this in crop. Will hold on to them, hoping cropped ones will be online soon.

Glad I pulled the trigger on the Ruber Ducky Push. If I don't like it I can always return it.

I'd really like to see another more chirp-like yellow. While the rubber-ducky is similar, the cool racerback I got felt too neon to me. Perhaps I was looking for a more muted, pastel like yellow when I ordered it and then it failed my expectations, but I though rubber ducky looked more like faded zap versus chirp.
But I do agree that I would like to see some different colors. While I love light blues - I'd like more neutrals, like browns, ivy greens & navys to add to my collection - especially in the staple items. It boggles me that they keep re-releasing the almost same identical color. I.e. Aruba-RiverRock-CoolBlue-Angel, all within the same color range - all the dark blues that have been released have been purpleish in tint. There's not been a deep blue, or a solid blue. I wish they would have released stitch in the women's line. It's teal, but not the bright type.
Hint to Lulu - women like muted/basic colors, too - not just men. I'm tired of all the bright-bright stuff.

The upload was pretty spastic today. It took forever for the things to load, and things randomly loaded in the afternoon. I really wanted a No Limits in white/ pique or purple crush/ coal, but Canada had only received the ariba, black and ikat when I left work this afternoon around 4:00pm Atlantic time. But when I got home 3 hours later, voila! there are the white and coal! I ended up ordering a white/ pique No Limits and I can't WAIT to get it!!! Perplexed by the weird upload though.

I find it pretty surprising that the No Limits went so fast in the States compared to Canada- as of now, we still have all colours available, albeit sizes are becoming limited in ikat and aruba (which have been available since lunchtime). Especially since the American side has had access to this tank for a week now! Oh well- this tank certainly seems to be the hot commodity right now! I hope I don't show up at the gym wearing the same outfit as too many people!

Megan said...

Do people usually go TTS on the Push or size up? What I consider my "TTS" I buy for most pullovers, CRBs, jackets/hoodies. I do size up for Scoop Neck tanks though. So what do people think about the Push Ur Limits? Thanks!!!

Luvlulu said...

@Megan - I bought my first Push Ur Limits tank the day after Christmas and I really like it. I stayed TTS in my tank size and jacket size. It has good support and isn't really tight across the stomach. I am thinking of purchasing another one.

Anonymous said...

Does the fact that the Run: Distance pullover in concord were recalled mean we will never see them again? Or could they possibly be re-released?

Sara said...

I tried on the rubber ducky push the other day in Canada hoping to love it... it didn't have the bra inserts in it and I found it very see through and without them i felt really exposed.

I also found that because of the light colour and extra 'flesh' in the belly area really gets highlighted ;(

I was really hoping to love this this tank in this colour but it wasn't for me...

I'm hoping for a scuba in rubber ducky

Anonymous said...

I find that the light colors are not flattering on me either. That static black hustle tank dropped out of my cart early this morning. I was able to get a Push Ducky and I am going to try the savsana wrap and the Live Healthy Wrap. Not sure if I'll keep them, but I love the new colors that they released in these today.

I got the coal stata headband in store this week. Nothing from today's upload appealed to me. Thought it was another weak upload (pretty much sums up the last month).

Anonymous said...

does anyone know whether the repetitive tank comes with the removable cups option?

Megan said...

@anon 6:06
From all reports, they aren't shipping any tanks with cups. You need to call GEC and request them, and even still, they are slow to ship. If you pop into a store, you may have better luck.

Anonymous said...

Megan, I have tried on the Push Ur Limits (and just ordered my first the other day!) and I found it 100% TTS. I invariably wear a size 6 from Lulu (for reference, I'm a 36B, 5'6, 125lbs and usually a size small in other clothes). I hope that helps!!

On the cup thing- after the whole discussion on this blog, I felt a little annoyed with Lulu, being a longtime Lulu lover and having bought many Lulu tanks (all online and none of which came with cups) so I called the GEC. Surprisingly, they were great about it, asked how many sets I wanted and offered to send them to my house free of charge. While I get irate sometimes about some quality issues, I've always experienced great customer service from Lulu - definitely a part of what keeps me coming back week after week!

Oh no... I guess my ducky push is going to have to be a goal to work towards since I decided to size down on it and now the next size up is GONE. Shoot! But yes... I ordered it because it is a different color. I would L.O.V.E. to see them start using some real greens (beachy green is still quite blue looking) and perhaps some reds? Though not at the same time, a little too Christmas-y :) What about some sort of rich taupe?

Anonymous said...

Ooooh, taupe! The pique/white no limits is lined with beige circle mesh instead if Luon, so maybe we'll at least see some neutral detailing in the future! Would love more ivy, true blues, etc in the future! Browns? Yes, please!

LuluAddict said...

@ Megan - You should consider your Scoop Neck tank your real size - at least as far as tanks with built in bras go(except for the Power Y which runs tight in the bra band). Most people size down in CRBs because they fit on the loose side. The Push runs TTS and you should order the same size as your Scoop Neck size. I have four Push UR Limits and love to wear them for spin when I need max cooling but decent support. They are very supportive but you usually need to add the cups to them for more coverage. I have also layered an All Sport bra under it when I want to lock the girls down. The tank and bra straps overlap nearly completely. I think the Challenge tank is an even better version of the Push. That is the silver luon tank that started out at $78 but got repriced to $58. There are still some available on the Canadian side if you live in Canada.

@anon 4:39 pm -The Concord Run Distance will not be seen again, at least this year. Lululemon tends to make one color group run (this time white, concord, and black) of a new item and then it may come out in a second run a few weeks later but since they are into their spring line they won't have a second run. It may come out again next year or possibly tweaked with a new name. They sold out on the US side right away so there is a good chance they will be back next year in some form.

@ Sara - Light colored Push UR Limits, or any tank made of light colored luxtreme, are tricky. You definitely need the cups and to suck your gut in. ;-) That is one reason I have tended to buy the darker Pushes or the patterns like heathered coal wee stripe for tummy camouflage. I am hoping there will be a coal strata stripe push in the future.

@ anon 6:06 pm - The Repetition Tank does not come with the built in cups but ask for them and ask again if you have to. The only tanks that come with cups are the Flow Y bra and the Power Y. The Eagle tank also comes with the cups.

@ anon 7:08 pm - Keep an eye on the website for Rubber Ducky Push returns. Sometimes a size will pop back up. You also can't trust the photos. If some odd colored Push shows up in the next couple of weeks make sure to click through to see the real color. I think there is a good chance you will see returns of the Rubber Ducky Push - yellow is a tough color for people to wear and people might not like how much is revealed by a light colored luxtreme.

LuluAddict said...

@ 7:08 pm - Returns tend to be posted on the website around 12/1pm pacific time.

LuluAddict- can you compare Rubber Ducky and Citron for me please? I love cooler, more blue-toned yellows, if that makes any sense, more like a muted lemon color... and I'm having a hard time telling the difference between Ducky and Citron. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

I am with anon 5:31. I would love a comparison. I have a citron CRB and actually really like the color in the summer. I don't really wear it in the winter, though.

Lulupetite said...

Anon 5:31 & 5:38 ~
I read in some other post/comment somewhere that rubber ducky is the same yellow as the Peeps marshmallow chicks (candy) that you see (in the US) at Easter time.

I have an ombre skirt with citron in the colorway and it is a less in tense yellow, probably same intensity as chirp but bluer.

Hope that helps

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 5:31 am - I have a Citron headband I can compare the Rubber Ducky to. I usually get deliveries from Lululemon around 3:30 pm pacific time so I'll post some comparison photos later this afternoon. I also have a Chirp headband and Mac N Cheese Flow Y bra so I'll lay them all together.

Anonymous said...

@luluaddict--can you compare the beachy green and caribe, too??? Thanks so much!!!

Caitlin said...

I haven't seen the no limit tank in ikat print anywhere in the us! Did they not get it? geez, all the LA stores have none in stock, any ideas on where I can get it ?

Kellie Jean said...

I love Lulu but I'm getting frustrated with the quick sell-out on-line(by that I mean the Rubber Ducky Push Ur LImits that sold out in 8 in about a half of a day) then they show up on e-bay with 10 quantity available and cost a lot more. There should be some type of regulation as to how many of each size someone can purchase! Share the LOVE people!

LuluAddict said...

@ Kellie Jean - I just got Rubber Ducky Push today and was not that thrilled with the color. It looked a lot more muted on the website. Keep an eye on the website for returns - I suspect there will be a bunch of this tank.
