Upload Starting Early Today - Running Commentary on Upload

Lululemon started early today. The No Limit and CRB tanks, Ikat Hot Class Tank plus long sleeve Swiftlys have already been uploaded.

Just to keep us on our toes, Lululemon started the upload really early and it has been going fast and furious. I ordered the Flush No Limit but held off on ordering the other two. On a side note, this is how I like to wear my No Limit tank - bloused up a little. I don't care for it pulled down so much like in the Ikat photo.

All the new Push UR Limits were uploaded.

All the new Distance Tanks were uploaded, too. I like Lilac Snow but not in this tank.

The Pace Setter long sleeve was uploaded. Some people don't care for the fit of this top but I thought it fit ok as far as a to and fro piece.
The Sprinkler Effortless Tote was uploaded and also a surprise...

Urban Messenger Yogini in Ikat

Lots of Swiftlys were uploaded today. This is the one my sister got. I really like this color.

I really like the Flush Scuba but Lululemon had to go and make is a pillow version which I hate. I wonder if the newest colors in Sprinkler, Flush, and Beachy Green will also be made in regular Scubas.


The Pure Balance Pants were uploaded. I am not a fan of wrinkles behind the knee.

The Pace Setter crops were also uploaded.

The Solace Jackets were uploaded, too. People on Facebook are saying to size up on this jacket.

What did you all order today?

I ordered the Pace Setter LS and the CSS No limit. I may head into the store today to see if they received the static coal or static black CRB. I thought the last time these were out it had a mesh back, I think this one is a solid back, at least the product notice didn't say it was a special edition.

Amanda said...

The pace setter LS is selling out quick in the static grey!

LuluAddict said...

@ Luvlulu - The static black CRB is solid. I saw it in the store the other night. One thing I liked about the mesh version is that it had black edging around the neck which looked really sharp. This version is all static.

there is a black gratitude wrap in size 8 available on the canadian site!

Anonymous said...

a few gratitude wraps just randomly popped up on the website on the Canadian side- if anyone was looking for one, now is the time to get them cause they're going FAST! There are about 6 black ones in size 8 there right now.

@LuluAddict: Why don't you like the pillow version of the scuba? I've been waiting for them to get some non-pastel colors into the store and was seriously considering the pillow SE.

LuluAddict said...

Is they gray Solace Jacket already sold out on the US Side?

LuluAddict said...

I don't like the metal zippers they use - they are sharp and snag on my delicate lulu tops. I don't like the big zipper up the back, either. I think it ruins the look of the hoodie.

I tried to order the grey solace in 10 and 12, and while I was entering my credit card info, the 10 sold out! I think I got the last 12 too, since now its sold out! Jeez that's the fastest I've seen something sell out. Hoping I'm not going to get an email saying my 12 is also out...

RunMama said...

I ordered the grey Solace jacket (sized up), grey Pacesetter LS (iffy on this one but I have to try it), and I got the black GW as it was my size and I couldn't resist.

Anonymous said...

I got the black pacesetter LS and the flush no limit tank. Contemplating getting a swiftly ss... :(

Megan said...

I passed on the Solace...I love the way it looks but I have the cropped Principle Jacket. So I had to pass - too similar. I love it and get so many compliments on the Principle. I think maybe I am short torso'd - it's still cropped but I love the way it looks.

LuluAddict said...

I'm thinking they didn't stock as many Solace jackets on the US side as the Canadian side.

Anonymous said...

Same for Pacesetter LS - sold out in US in gray, in my size (4) in black. Sheesh - stepped away from my computer for a 1/2 hour to go into a meeting and that's what happened. Good thing I didn't want it *that* bad.

With the phone sales gone, you'd think they'd have *more* stock rather than less....

LuluAddict said...

@ Megan - I love my Principle Jacket. It's also nice that it's a technical fabric so you can sweat in it.

Anonymous said...

What section did GW show up in? Was it this just in, or hoods? Thanks

@Anon : 853pm - Under Jackets

Anonymous said...

Light gray pique wunder under crops were restocked!

Anonymous said...

Got the Push in sprinkler and flush... I feel like we all sit hoovering over our computers on Thursday mornings and then POUNCE when they start uploading. I hope they get inventory under control so it doesn't have to be like this. Sometimes I can't order right when it comes out, sometimes because of scheduling, sometimes because of finances, but it would be nice to still be able to order something I'd like at random. I'll never get a beachy green CRB :(

Anonymous said...

I tried the solace jacket on yesterday and went up a size. I found that it is quite plain looking in front when its done up, as in it made me look totally flat. I passed, even though the ruching detail is super cute! I picked up the CSS wunder under crop though! Surprised to see it so I snapped it up!

Anonymous said...

i got a black pique define, flush Get Focused, black pace setter crops, and the coal/strata No Limit.

Anonymous said...

I got nothing. I was waiting for the static CRBs to pop up. Not sure if my showroom will get any in. :(

beth said...

Grey Gratitude wrap in 10, 3 get focused (all but striped one), blue/ikat Push ur limits, and i think that was it? I totally agree with the thursday morning pounce on the site... Sad how I keep refreshing my browser on upload Thursdays. I wonder if we will have any late surprises (aka sprinkler cabin LS from last week)

momof5 said...

I grabbed a sprinkler push (my first push -- hope all the reviews are right!!) and the flush NLT -- I am going to return the white one for this one -- always regretting not grabbing the passion one last year!

mo said...

oops -- thats regretted, not regretting --@anon 919-- where did you find the black pique define --

Anonymous said...

mo - two days ago the black pique define was online with ALL SIZES available. i had it in my basket. then it disappeared from the jackets/hoodies section. then when i went to purchase all my other stuff today, it was still in the basket marked as IN STOCK. i placed the order and the order went thru. i have no idea why they took it off the jacket/hoodies spot.

Anonymous said...

I wonder why they aren't updating the Live Simply tees with the new colors (aruba, flush, sprinkler, etc.) I hope they aren't planning on discontinuing this item. I'm not over the loss of the 5 yr pima tee...

Elise said...

I got the NLT in sprinkler/ikat and the ikat hot class tank... does anyone know if the flashback pullover was uploaded? or did it sell out already?

LuluAddict said...

@ Elise - The Flashback wasn't uploaded.

peony said...

How do you all like the hot class ikat tank? Cute?

Anonymous said...

the grey Solace jacket is sold out in Canada now. I decided I was going to size up to an 8 and when i went to buy it I hit complete and it said my address wasn't verified or something like that. Then when I went back to repurchase, they were out of 8. I managed to get ahold of a 6...hoping it's not too small. The GEC said they were TTS but online ppl r saying to size up

Anonymous said...

^ I think it depends on where you carry your weight. I'm very flat (boo!) and thought it was TTS.

Anonymous said...

That's good to hear because I'm also flat! Thanks for letting me know, makes me feel more confident that this may be TTS for me

Luna said...

ordered Sprinkler CRB. that's it.

i stopped by in my local lulu just now. i was surprised they didn't have much exciting stuff there. the store looked empty. no CRBs are restocked yet.
would like to see solid Margarita in CRB and Flow Y bra. maybe next week? :)

Anonymous said...

Nothing for this addict. Not loving the colors plus Ikat and CSS will be too dated once newer prints come out =/

Elise said...

Thanks, Luluaddict! I'll have to check my local el segundo store...

@Luna: would love a margarita CRB! I don't have anything green!

Anonymous said...

Pacesetter LS in black. Question though-if something is stocked on the CDN side, (GW, lol) can someone in the US buy it?

Julia said...

I got two Get Focuseds (Ikat and CSS). I really wanted the gray Solace, but it was sold out in my size (4 or 6) before I even spotted it on the website. I called my local lulu, and they said they're expecting it so to check back tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

@Anon 11:03 - You can only buy from the CDN side if you are shipping to a CDN address.

Anonymous said...

There are holding companies though that will provide a Canadian address then ship to the States for a fee. I've never used the service, but you can google it. Many use paypal so you have some protection. There are some 'Lulu Angels' that will purchase in Canada and ship to the States too. There's one lady by the name of Nancy in BC who is fairly well known- you can find her on facebook (just search Nancy Lululemon shopper adn you should find her). I've never ordered anything though her, but I've heard great feedback :)

Luna said...

for some reason i can't stop thinking about CSS WU crop. i'm pretty sure those stripes won't work on my short & not so skinny legs..
maybe i should just order. i can always return in store.

marzz said...

I ordered the no limits coal/coal strata stripe in sz 6 first thing this morning. Now I'm considering the boogie shorts in same.

Also, I visited the vaughan mills store which has a lot of clearance, and found a TON of the challenge stuff marked down. The challenge tank was marked down to $44, but I was disappointed in the thickness of the fabric, so I passed.

Anonymous said...

I have a question... if you order something online and pay via paypal, can you still return to a store? And how are you credited back? Thanks!

LuluAddict said...

@marzz - Don't let the thick fabric put you off. The silver luon breathes and wicks better than regular luon. The thicker fabric is also more supportive than regular luon so it molds your shape better. I love, L-O-V-E my Challenge tank.

@ anon 12:27 pm - You can return any Lulu item to a store no matter how you pay. The store can't credit back to paypal so you can pick a credit card and they'll credit that. I would think they'd give you cash, too, but I usually buy something else or have them credit to a card. They've told me the store doesn't have the same system so you can get credited back to any card you want, which happened to me one time when I didn't have the right card with me and we used another.

Lulu IT Girl said...

Wow, everything went so fast. Didn't even get a chance to see what was available because I was in meetings all day. :( Probably should book a personal meeting for myself on Thursday mornings.

Anonymous said...

Just went to the store to try the Solace jacket. Totally fell in love. Stayed TTS, however, I'm small on top. So I could see how a lot of ladies may size up. It's lovely.

crystal said...

oh,no after reading all commets about solace jacket,think i screwed up and went too big,i'm always a 6,but decided to go for a 8,i dont even own anything in a 8,did i make a mistake?what do u guys think?

Michelle Q said...

Didn't purchase in the upload, but I went to the NB store today and picked up a CRB in Static Very Violet. It's SO pretty! I love this color but in the previous incarnation it was SE CRB with the solid back and static front. This one is static all the way around - LOVE IT! I had a hard time choosing between the static very violet and static plum, but the static VV was just such a happy color I couldn't resist.

ellesmommy said...

Crystal, I ordered a gray size 6 Solace, but after reading all the comments, I am thinking I should have gotten an 8. Is yours gray? We might find the need to do a trade...

crystal said...

yep,mine is grey,i should have it tommorow,when do u get yours?

Anonymous said...

I was "late" to the upload this morning and all they grey solace jacket were sold out. However, I wasn't sure if I wanted black or grey so the decision was made for me I guess. I'm always a 6 and never an 8 on top but I went ahead and ordered both the 6 and 8 in black knowing I can resell or return the one that doesn't fit. I'm thinking I'll be fine with the 6 since I'm small busted. Also got a black pace setter long sleeve - i guess just in time as it disappeared shortly thereafter. And a blue/ikat no limits.

Lulaholic said...

I went into my local store today and snagged a challenge tank for $44 bucks (score!), a black effortless tote, a sprinkler speed skirt and a black solace jacket. I got the black only because they were out of the grey one. I loved it so much I did not want to chance not getting one at all. I did NOT need to size up in this jacket. I am usually a 6 and I bought a 6 and it is PERFECT!!!! I am so stoked about my purchases today!!!

Anonymous said...

All I bought was a Flush No Limit Tank. I wanted to try the Distance and Get Focused tanks, will wait for more colours to come out. I was hoping that the flashback pullover would be uploaded, guess I'll have to wait until next week.

LuluAddict said...

@ Lulu IT Girl - Lulu kind of ambushed us today - they started the upload very early - something like 7:10 am pacific time and loaded stuff fairly quickly. Maybe they should start taking pre-orders like Zobha did for their spring line.

Julia said...

I went to my local lulu and bought the static black CRB. It feels softer and stretcher than other CRBs I own. I tried on the CSS crops -- they were cute, but I'm petite (5 ft tall, 105 pounds). I passed because I wasn't sure where I'd wear them. I also tried on the Get Focused Tank, and for me, it was TTS, but I'm small-chested (I wear a size 4). It was also long because of my height. Still no sighting of the Solace at my local lulu (on the East Coast).

Lacey said...

I ordered the coal/stripe no limit tank and the sprinkler crb online, and then went to my store and picked up a sprinkler power y, 2 satin headbands, static charcoal crb and a static very violet crb!

Anonymous said...

Luluaddict, do you know if Irvine or Newport got the Solace jacket in grey and also the static crbs ? Thanks so much!

Lulu IT Girl said...

Oooh, I love the pre-order idea. They should consider this.

Makavelina said...

@LuluAddict: Girl, why do you hate the pillow Scuba? I don't own any and I like the way it looks, what is it like?? (collection information..)

cupcakesandlipgloss24 said...

Has anyone tried the pace setter crops? Do you usually size up or stay tts with the power luxtreme pants? I sized up because they looked small on the hanger(didn't have time to try on in store) and got a 6 but I usually wear a 4 in grooves and wunder unders. They fit comfortably but are they supposed to be extra tight for the compression effect? Thanks!

Julia said...

I haven't tried the pace setter crops, but I wear size 4 in both wunder unders and in luxtremes like inspire and dash crops. If you can, you might want to go back and try on the size 4 before you take the tags off.

ellesmommy said...

Crystal, I got mine just now. I do feel like I should have gotten an 8. However, I think I will actually pass on this jacket. If you want to buy mine, let me know soon. Otherwise, I will return it to the store. thatamiya@gmail.com
