Australian Excitement - Tango Red Coming Soon & Is the Energy SL Coming Back???




Sooo, these photos from an Australian store have me cautiously excited. They weren't featuring new clothes but a trip to a local yoga studio for a "lemon drop," whatever that is, but I am hoping they are wearing new clothes in the photos. I am excited because the hot pink tank doesn't look familiar to me. I am hoping it is an Energy SL in Violaceous. I know the new Sunset tank is coming out in Violaceous but it doesn't look like the Sunset tank, which has more of an Empire silhouette. Even if it not the Energy SL, it looks like a running singlet with a shape I like so I will be excited to learn more about it. Also, the red CRB is exciting because Lululemon has made red in a long time. However, cameras and computers have trouble capturing reds so it's not impossible it could be Alarming or another orangey red. If any Australian readers can give us some insight it would be much appreciated.


Update - A reader writes in that the red is Tango Red so I am totally excited about that. Another reader writes that she thought the hot pink tank may be the Go With The Flow from last year. I've added another photo to show the shoulder straps are not the same as the Go With the Flow. I also don't think the material in these photos drapes like organic cotton. In fact, in the top photo, I would almost say the back is made of Sheer Luon because it looks like a slightly different color than the front. You can see the photos for yourself at the Brisbane FB site. Anyway, I am very excited by these photos.

2nd Update - The Brisbane store commented that the red tank is Alarming and the other tank is a Go With the Flow. Bummer. I didn't think the straps looked the same but I guess they could be.

Lemon drops are when lulu employees drop by to give gifts to either instructors or to whole classes. My local stores have dropped into yoga classes before to hand out free Groove pants as well as outdoor fitness areas like the Santa Monica stairs to hand out run gear.

I *think* the CRB is Alaraming with the Groovy Run Shorts in Alarming/Coal. If you can see this facebook album of a Crossfit contest with all the Los Angeles area lulu stores, many of the competitors are wearing Alarming CRBs. http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id=120069041338898&aid=27336

Ok, it's probably alarming then. However, I still am hoping the other tank is a new one.

Hi Luluaddict! Love your blog! I'm wondering if you know if North America is getting any pure balance tanks in other colors later? i saw a photo of it in white but we haven't got that color? Also, any idea of when the pure move tanks will be showing up?
Thanks!

The pink tank looks like a senorita Go With The Flow *org tank that was released last Summer. It's cotton in the front and Tencel on the back. I hope I'm not right but am fairly confident as I have 2 in other colours.

It is Tango Red, a new colour. I posted weeks ago on your blog saying I was planning to save my money for tango red because I don't like the current colours. I guess nobody read my comment.

@anon 10:35 am - I'm so sorry I didn't take note of your comment on Tango Red!! I try to read all the comments but sometimes they come fast and furious and I miss them. Thank you so much for writing in again. I know a lot of people are excited to see a red return to the color palette.

I don't think it's a Go With the Flow but it does look similar. I added another photo so you can see the straps beter. The back looks like it's made of Sheer Luon so it's not the Energy SL either but it looks *very* promising.

@ anon10:00 am - I think the white Pure Balance tank only went to Strategic Partners so you'll have to look at area yoga studios and gyms that carry Lulumon. What is the Pure Move Tank? Do you mean the Pure Focus? It's already here in SoCal stores so I think it will be arriving early next week in local stores.

Oops..yes, meant Pure Focus!
Thanks for the info!

Sorry, false alarm. The Brisbane store said the tank was a Go With The Flow and the CRB was alarming red.
