Margarita Green Headband & Upload Thursday wishes


This is from an Australian product alert. It's the untwisted headband in Margarita Green.

I am thinking we'll see the Coal Strata Stripe Scoop Neck and CRB in tomorrow's upload. I'm sure we'll also see the Hot Class tank and shorts and maybe the other colors of the Cabin Long sleeve tops. Those silly ruffled Wunder Unders and CRB will probably show up, too.  I've backed away from getting the CSS CRB - I am thinking the horizontal stripes might not do me any favors. The CSS CRB has arrived in my local stores so I will try it on there. I am not looking for anything tomorrow but if a surprise tank design shows up or a cute new colored CRB - solid margarita? - I'd be happy.

Did anyone read the Facebook posts on pique In Strides fraying? It sounded like a lot of people were having problems. What a shame. Lululemon really needs to get a grip on quality (and change the black luon recipe back to the original).

What are you hoping to see tomorrow?

Somebody mentioned that the NLT might be out in Flesh. If at all this is true, then I'll be saving my money for that. Also heard that there will be a Flesh Strata Stripe. Nothing I want in the upload tomorrow and its a good thing.

I'm a new reader so this is, I'm sure, a dumb question - just curious why Australia gets the new product first? Also just wanted to say that I am loving your blog!

I'm 95% sure I saw the margarita headband at the Eaton Centre location today. I did buy the CSS CRB and it is very slimming! You wouldn't think it by seeing it hanging, but I bought it without hesitation. Tried the CSS Scoopneck and the paneling added width I think. Didn't get it (not big boob friendly) but I think the CRB is a must have. And very very soft, almost like a pima tee

@Ladybug - Somehow Australia gets the new stuff first. The real reason is not known but it might be because its summer there and they probably won't be getting much of the winter/spring jackets and they are closer to China?

LuluAddict said...

@ Ladybug's Picnic - One reason Australia is getting the spring stuff early is that they are in their summer season so they can use the warm weather stuff now. I think another reason is that they are closer to China than us.

Ah, right. That makes sense. Oh, and I actually bought the CSS CRB yesterday and it is VERY flattering on, despite what you might think about horizontal stripes. I too bought it without hesitation. And the matching grooves. Very cute together in person!

LuluAddict said...

Hmmm. Maybe I will order the CSS CRB if it shows up. However, now that I hear about a flesh NLT, I might save my pennies for that.

I purchased the CSS CRB today. It is so soft, it feels like it is cotton. I don't like stripes and I don't like grey on me (it usually washes me out) but this one looked good. I do hope the CRB comes out in margarita and a flesh strata stripe might be nice. I do hope the No limit comes in Flesh for those that weren't able to buy it in passion last year. I wore my passion one today to spin class and always get compliments on that tank.

I also have the Black :Pique In Stride and I haven't had any problems with mine. I was wearing it today most of the day. I wear it to and from the gym as well as a casual jacket. I hope I don't have any problems with it because I really like the feel of it.

The CSS CRB hides all kinds of tummy imperfections!!! It is actually slimming. It is Yuummmmmy. ALL the educators in my store bought it the first day it arrived.

I would LOVE to see a margarita stripe CRB but I know it won't happen tomorrow....

Lulupetite said...

Longsleeve Swiftlys!!! It's been COLD out there on my runs. Don't believe they've uploaded any to the website in the last month. Or did I somehow miss the boat?

now I'm worried about my In stride ......no problems yet but i'm wondering if I should wait or bring it back now.....
Luluaddict- i am the one who told you that you will like the MUPS scuba and you ended up liking the stripes on you. ... I think you should try the Strata CRB. I just got it today and it's amazing. very flattering. .However, I saw the Strata Scoop Neck in store today and it's not flattering so much...

I was thinking about the CSS CRB tomorrow, for those who have already purchased did you buy your usual CRB size? I am still sad the US didn't get the Fast Forward Jacket. I might get the define with the CSS as well. Any mention of the repetition tank!

Unicorn Tears headband or CRB! Please?!

I got a product notification that there a Unicorn Tears water bottle...maybe it will come on clothing items soon?

Megan said...

I need more l/s Swiftly's too but I don't have any real hope we will see any. No new ones in stores since the black and aruba/grey but I really disliked both of those. Would love love a solid Sprinkler or Margarita.

Rinne said...

@Anon 6:21 I bought my normal size, but while I was putting it on I did feel it was more snug going over my shoulders than my other CRBs. Fit perfectly though

Where on the black pique In Stride jacket is there fraying??? It's normal that it might pill a little. Does the fraying happen only after washing? Haven't washed mine yet, and now worried bc I love it and would probably (knowing me) go into the stores with my tags in hand wanting a store credit at least! I will do it if I have to! I paid serious $ for this jacket!

ragazza said...

I'm not really looking for much of anything b/c I'm not supposed to be buying things, but if margarita started showing up, I'd bite for a CRB or maybe a swiftly.

Jinii said...

I want the cabin long sleeve!!! It is now showing in stores but the GEC does not have it and my local showroom has not gotten it. I need the aruba and rubby duck ones!!

Does anyone know if stores will ship to you?

Anonymous said...

@Jinii - Certain stores will at their own discretion. You have to call and ask.

In my experience, the cost to ship from a store is $10 regardless of distance, meaning picking a store in your state is not better than across the US. Im not sure if this'll impact your decision or not.

Luna said...

CRB in sprinkler becuz I don't have bright blue from lulu yet. solid Margarita CRB will be nice too.
And Pique WU crop in any color..!

@ anon 6:45 pm - The In Strides are fraying on the inside of the arm. I think it's in the same place the Stride does when it brushes against the zipper pulls on the pockets.

Anonymous said...

Luluaddict. Thanks for specific details of the fraying. I was wearing mine yesterday and Its totally fraying on the inside arms! Black In Stride. If I take back to Spectrum will they just give me another one or ??? Thanks!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 9:07 - Go to the web page and read reviews on Stride jackets. Lot's of people telling about their problems with the Stride and one lady posted a photo of the fraying. I think they have been offering replacements or credits. I haven't had to take back a defective item (one reason is I stayed away from the Stride/In Stride).

My black pique In Stride frayed the first time I wore it. The seems on the arms had all kinds of fuzzy, thready things going on. I brought it to my store and they tried to exchange it but they didn't have any more size 4s so they gave me store credit. I bit the bullet and bought it again online because I really do love this jacket so much, but I'm scared to wear it and it happen again. I would hate to have to go back to the exact same store with the exact same problem. : /
