NEW! Pure Balance Jacket

Lululemon is killing me with all the stuff I would like to get this month. This is the Pure Balance Jacket. I like it. It comes in black, white, and coal so far, sizes 4-12. I wonder if there will be a Violaceous and Iris Wee Stripe or Wren version, too.

Update - The jacket is $128 and is very fitted. The girl who tried it on said she could feel the seams on the arms so maybe it runs tight in the arms.

Product Details:

  • Hip length, relaxed fit jacket is great over your tights and tanks for to and from yoga
  • Made with luon® fabric - breathable, cotton-like feel, 4-way stretch providing support and allowing for freedom of movement
  • Longer length covers your bum
  • Thumbholes keep your sleeves down and your hands warm!
  • Front pockets to stash phone and keys
  • Preshrunk

That's pretty darn adorable, I have to say. Very unique design but still wearable and versatile. I am tempted, but I have to budget the funds with the stuff I absolutely LOVE this month.

LuluAddict said...

I know. There is way too much good stuff this month.

Wow... that is beautiful!! Definately want, just hoping it's not too much money?

Bri said...

Oh great...I love it! I just ended up buying the Pure Balance pant in black...so they would match...ugh!

Must. Learn. Self-control.

I like it! I'd love to see some pretty contrasting color combinations. :)

i love that it's made with luon! i have way too much black & gray. i hope they come out with some spring colors.

on a separate note, my local store said they are expecting at least 8 new colors of CRBs on Monday/Tuesday. Currently, they only have white. Isn't that horrible considering CRBs are supposed to be a "core" item. it's just sad.

I really really like this!!

This is on a a separate note also but I am really disappointed that they have not had any good "we made to much" sales. I am 4 hours away from the closet store and it would be nice to get a deal :) Any idea when we may see one?

This jacket looks a little too "juicy couture" for my taste. I wear lulu because they don't make those icky velour track outfits.

Hmmm, so tempting!

Last year there was a big upload of loot mid-March. I'm hoping the organic grooves which disappeared from the website this week are going to show up there.

Zanna said...

Yay! A hood without drawstrings finally. I hate the drawstrings at the neck/hood.

momof5 said...

@RunMama - I think the organic grooves have been on sale at stores for a while -so I wouldn't be surprised if they showed up in loot --

Another side note --- Please Lulu -- Please release matching items TOGETHER not piecemealed throughout the month!! Big pet peeve of mine!!

RunMama said...

momof5 - I think you're right. My stores didn't even really get the organic grooves in, just a few pairs. I agree about matching items. It's so silly for example that lulu had the nice ambition tights with passion, yet the passion ambition pullover sold out instantly and was never replenished. Not surprising hardly anyone wanted to buy the passion tights!

Luna said...

8 new colros of CRBs?!!!!
what colors? i must know!!
my local lulu have black and white CRBs only for more than A MONTH!
it's been beyond sad.

momof5 said...

@RM -- or the repetition, or the unicorn tears bottoms but no tops -- they would make so much more money IMO - if they had matching items available online for the grownup garanaimal in us-- especially for those of us that aren't near a store -- I hate having to buy a top or bottom waiting for the matching item to come out online(If ever) and then have to send it back -- UGH!

ChiRunner said...

@momof5 - LOL at the Garanimal reference. :)

I'm the same way though. I like to buy coordinating items. It also drives me mad when they release random items in great color and then don't offer anything else in that color to coordinate with it. Like, why no solid Plum CRB or running bottoms when there is an running pullover and a jacket in that color?

I would love for more cool racer backs to come in! I only have 1 right now but im in love with it. I keep checking my stores for my size and they only have one special edition one that one with the skinny back that doesnt work with any bras. I want more! Id even take a black or white but my stores doesnt have those either.

LOVE LOVE this jacket...which store was this from?

Glow said...

Ooh, I'd love to see this in white. Wishlisted!

just spike with GEC, southern California stores have them!!! someone please try one on & report sizing back to us!!!

momof5 said...

OT -- Luluaddict -- I would love your insight on the topic on lulumums website regarding the gratitude wrap being sold by Neiman Marcus as a new channel expansion of the brand. any thoughts -- interestingly too -- since it was outed on facebook as a copy of the GW - it is now completely sold out when it was available in all sizes yesterday

Where is the snorkel define and crb fitting into this color palette? Does it go with the unicorn tears somehow, or is it just delayed product from the last color series we had?

LuluAddict said...

Lululemon has been releasing coordinating items piecemeal since I starting buying them 4 years ago. If I like something I have to take a change that there will eventually be a coordinating jacket, pants, bra, etc. It makes you crazy and definitely contributed to my Lululemon OCD.

I just posted on the Neiman Marcus Gratitude Wrap clone. It's very interesting that the company has hidden partnerships at all sorts of price points - high end - Neiman Marcus, Middle - Nordstrom Zella, and low - Costco's Tuff brand.

I'm thinking Snorkel might be delayed but it's hard to tell.

It's hard to tell about Loot. I picked up some great sales last year - $3 underwear, $25 gym bags - but I think the company is doing too well so the on-line loot bargains are gone. I hope I'm right but I guess we'll see. I don't recall any big Loot upload in March last year but I hope you're right.

phxrunner said...

I called GEC to see if the Pure Balance Jacket made it to my local store - only 3 stores in so cal yet. Hopefully next week!

Where is the color?,in my stores it is all white, black coal and wren, all the good stuff never comes into my stores anymore.

RunMama said...

LA - I remember the loot upload on March 17th last year b/c it's my birthday :-) Several things I wanted appeared that day.

LuluAddict said...

@ runmamm - Very interesting. I'll be keeping on eye on loot, now. I know they had a big upload 4th of July weekend, too.

i purchased the pure balance jacket this morning in white size 4. I LOOOOOOVE this jacket. it covers my butt. I'm normally a 2 but they didn't make it so i got 4. tight on the arms which I like rather than loose. just very flattering. pricey but so are other jackets. I will wear it all the time until warm weather hits but also great for plane rides too.
