Upload Thursday - What Are You Hoping For? (And heads up on the new color palette)

I don't know why the US isn't getting the newest batch of Push UR Limits. We didn't get the Passion or Snorkel ones and now we are not getting the Rubby Ducky, Aruba, and Purple Crush. I might consider getting a Rubber Ducky Push UR Limits tank if it shows up on line tomorrow. Other than that, I don't know what else I might be interested in. Maybe a Coal Strata Stripe CRB?

New Colors Oh yeah, I forgot to write there was a new set of hair ties in the store - Sprinkler Blue, Flush (looks a lot like Persimmon to me), and Margarita Green (a yellowy minty green). Together they looked really cute so I hope some tops come out with all the colors like in poncho multi stripe. Margarita looked a bit like the CRB color in the photo below, but darker. It does resemble margarita mix. I'm going to try and find a better match for what I saw.

Has anyone else recently purchased the Run Passion Crops? I just received mine and am wondering if they are running big? The luxtreme doesn't feel form fitting like other run crops, and the waist seems really loose, and I very rarely vary with pant sizes.

I am hoping for the Cabin LS tees to get uploaded even though the price went up by $10.00.

LuluAddict said...

The Cabin LS is $78 now? Wow.

Mel said...

Hmm, all the new and upcoming colors doesn't excite me lately. But I'm glad that lulu may be bring out some of the vintage items.

An educator told me the new colour was called flesh....flush sounds sort of weird don't you think?

Becky said...

My new cabin LS is $68 (Aruba/Heathered Gray) although it is a reprice sticker. Maybe it did start out at $78, but I only paid $68 for mine....

The color code on this is: HBLG/ARRS/ARBA I have no clue what all that stands for, LOL. Also, I noticed it seems to be a bit thinner than my Haze/Coal one. The thumbholes part of the sleeve is definitely thinner, and overall it seems softer, and I didn't think that would be possible!

LuluAddict said...

@anon 3:23 - The educator called up their excel spreadsheet with the names while I was in the store today and it definitely is "flush." I prefer to think of it in terms of how your cheeks get flushed when you exercise. I initially thought the color was Flash.

**official color is Flesh not Flash

Megan said...

Desperate for more L/S Swiftly's in pretty colors (sprinkler, purple crush, something bright and cheerful)

Kate said...

I tried on the new Cabin L/S last week it was only $68, not $78.

Flesh??? That is digusting! I sure hope it's FLUSH. Flesh reminds me of wounds or something....

Glow said...

I'd definitely get some items in margarita! Finally something that isn't just a slight tweak on colors I'm already stocked up on.

I felt that way when I tried on the yogi dance crop that--see thru when you bend over and thin luon -- That is so lame that they are scrimping on quality --

I aslo felt that the new sunburst grooves felt slick -- like cheap marika quality -not soft like my old ones --I am sending them back

oopa -posted to the wrong spot ..sorry!!

A color called margarita? Haha... that makes it VERY appealing! No, in all seriousness, I really like that color! And I like that picture of the Rubber Ducky, the girl modeling it is a little more fair like me, which sometimes causes me to stay away from certain colors. Based on that picture it looks like it's a saturated enough color that it might not wash me out. Bummer that we're not getting it on the US side :(

LuluAddict said...

I kind of like margarita, too, but I wonder if I will look washed out in it.

Flesh seems like a weird name for an orange color. I can understand flush, though. I guess we'll see.

The new colors are the same ones as the inside of the Aruba effortless bag right? I remember seeing the coral, green, and blue on the inside of that bag in a picture so I am not surprised by those new colors.

@luluaddict -- the passion and snorkel Push Your limits are on the website

Anonymous said...

Haha! Flush isn't as bad as porta-potty!!

LuluAddict said...

@ momof5 - I know they are on the website but I wanted to try them on and see how they looked against my skin. I'm really surprised they have stayed website only because stores in Canada got them. Usually, if something is website only it's for both sides.

I paid %58.00 for the LS Cabin Tees last Fall.

I'm HOPING the No Limits finally hits the website on the Canadian side today!! I've spent a fortune the last while on Lulu stuff.. I think I'm at roughly $400 for the past 2 weeks.. There goes my new year's resolution I guess!

I don't know how I feel about the Cabin LS tee.. It's cute and from what I've heard, it's amazingly soft and comfortable. I just have a hard time justifying so much money on a non-technical shirt. With the tax rate in Atlantic Canada, at $68, it comes to almost $80.00 inc tax. For a cotton tee! Yikes! For that, it better wash the dishes and walk the dog too!

Flush and Sprinkler are looking an awful lot like Wish Blue/ Bold Blue and Passion respectively... LuluAddict, have you had a chance to compare the colours at all? Do they really look as similar to the old colours as they appear in the photo of the hair ties? They're great colours, but I've got as much or more of them in my workout wardrobe now as it can handle! New colours please Lulu!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 5:44 am - I think Sprinkler is a bit lighter than Bold Blue/Wish Blue. Flush looks like Persimmon to me. Until some tops come in in the "new" colors I won't be able to tell how close they are.

On the whole flush/ flesh debate, I just ordered the new hair ties (so excited to try them, I see lots of ponytails & braids in my hearstyle- future!!) and the colour code is "flush". Anon 3:23 - I totally agree, it's a weird name for a colour! The "flushed skin" reference certainly isn't the first thing that the word "flush" brings to mind! Definiely an interesting choice of names for the colour.

LuluAddict, I totally agree that it looks like Persimmon. *Sigh. Maybe they'll have some new colours for summer?

I managed to pick up the Cabin LS for $58 when it hit the stores last week. It rang up as $68 but they honoured the price that was on the tag. When I went in today to look at the Aruba one, there was a sticker on top with $68. If you're lucky, you may still find some with the $58 price tag. I know the black ones may as I saw some.

Neph said...

Hmm...not a fan the the new colors. I want more greens, but something like a chartreuse.

Unrelated, but is the last picture the same model that is in all the website photos?
