Today's Upload - A Few Goodies

Well, it was there briefly but now sold out, but the Iris and Striped Aura Pullover was uploaded today. I briefly considered getting it but $68 seems a bit steep.

Black Dance Studio Crops were uploaded. I tried these on but decided one pair of Wrens was enough for me.

The pretty long sleeve Swiftly in Clarity Gra/Lilac Snow and Classic Sport Gray/Black were uploaded.

The Violaceous Scuba was uploaded, too. I wonder why the Snorkel version wasn't also uploaded.

Oooh, the Sprinkler Pace setter pullover was just uploaded. I think this upload is better than last week's. I like this one a lot but I've spent so much this month I will hold off on this.
 Oooh, the Iris and Snorkel Pacesetters also showed up. I put the Iris in my bag but restrained myself from ordering it. I am so tempted, though.

 The black Run: Jog Skirt was also uploaded. Better get one quick. Jog skirts are selling out in hours, if not minutes.

So far, no new tanks.

What did you get today?

i was one of the lucky ones to get the aura pullover, as well as the ls swiftly in lilac snow. we'll see what else pops up...

SV said...

I watched the aura sell out even though I wanted another because I was hoping for a pure focus. Pipe dreams.

Not for nothing -- but they shouldn't have ended GEC phone orders until the new website was up and running -- that is just really bad planning IMO -- who made that management decision? they should be fired!

amber said...

Woohoo! Got the Pacesetter pullover in Iris! Made my morning. :)

I also got the Aura pullover, my store didn't have it but it looks really cute on the Model. How is the fit on it, is it tight in the shoulders / arms like Aura Jacket? I usally wear a 12 in Lulu clothing and ordered Aura Pullover in 10, what do you think?

holy feeding frenzy on that iris pacesetter! i had to redo my order three times because sizes kept selling out!

amber said...

Well, the Iris pacesetter is obviously popular - gone in every size but 10. Wow.

ChiRunner said...

I wanted the Aura Pullover in black to be restocked - just not interested in the Iris version.

I agree with @momof5 - they really should have kept GEC sales going until they got their act together with the website. I haven't made an online purchase in over a month and I'm getting increasingly frustrated with their total inability to stock enough of certain items online (and then not offer those items in the stores). I certainly haven't seen the Aura Pullovers in the stores in Chicago - has anyone seen them in a US store?

they made a statement in the email blast to say that they will not be sending any further email notifications for the next few weeks due to the upgrading for e-commerce. So we get to save some money for a few weeks now.

@ ChiRunner - I haven't seen the Aura Pullover in my local stores.

It seems like very poor planning that they would allow such a big hiccup in sales just as they were reaching critical mass in the US. You would think they could do a seamless switch over to a new website and distribution center, as far as customers were concerned, if they really wanted to. I guess they figure it plays into their "scarcity" model.

cjrun said...

Any one seen the Iris Pacesetter in US stores. I missed out. Was in my cart but my damn phone was too slow :(

Luna said...

i got Voila scuba :)

they uploaded more stuff than i expected today.

The Aura Pullover you have to size down for sure it is too big around the neck and looks sloppy.

I think the record breaker crops were uploaded too, just under crops, not this just in.

Lacey said...

Where is the iris and snorkel pullovers? I'm not seeing it; just the sprinkler.

Anonymous said...

Lacey, They were under jackets, although Iris may be sold out on the US side.

I ordered my size in aura pullover last week and a size down. I thought the size down was tighter around the waist and kinda took away the loose fit style of the pullover. I decided to return both. Wasn't loving it and there are always more great pieces released.

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know if the aura pullover was uploaded on the US side in any other colors besides iris/wren striped?

karly said...

I can't believe I was able to get the Iris/Gray Swiftly! Also got the studio crops, pace setter in sprinkler (missed the iris!) and the viola scuba. Nice surprises today!

Anonymous said...

sprinkler pacesetter! i have been eying it for weeks - so excited it finally made the upload. i can't believe the iris sold out so quickly though. sad about the reported hiatus from uploads that lulumum is reporting, but hopefully they'll have lots of summer tanks coming soon. tango red no limit anyone?!

Anonymous said...

Still a full size run of the Iris PS on the Canadian site! I'm soooo tempted. @Luluaddict I have it in my bag too, I'm trying to resist!!
How badly do I need a longsleeve... spring is coming! (although we're getting 15 cm of snow tomorrow!... hard to say it was 10 degrees celsius last week!)

i missed out on the iris pace setter! so sad :(

second week in a row away from the computer at upload time and second week missing out on the aura pullover. Also second week in a row not purchasing a single thing online (I don't think this has ever happened before so it reflects on their recent stock). Lulu is soooooooooooo lame that they have to shut down their site until mid-april to do a relaunch!!!! thousands of other online retailers do it seamlessly with virtually no down-time. Lulu has the lamest web team ever.

I snagged the Studio crop and the LS Swiftly in the lilac. Yay!! Love the Pacesetter, but just bought the snorkel on the weekend...and like someone just said, spring and summer are coming...

FYI...lululemon doesn't have a web team. It is outsourced. That is why they are doing a complete revamp of their e-commerce. After the change- over it will be in-house. Then everyone can legitimately complain about it being Lululemon's fault.

Another upload with nothing the interests me. I live in Florida, so I really don't need any pullovers. I was really hoping for more CRB or other tanks to be uploaded. I guess I will have to stop by my local store to see if they got any in.

As far as the jog skirt, I'm glad I tried it on in store. I'm 5'7" and it was way too short on me and so fart it doesn't come in tall. Even if it were longer, I don't see how I could possibly run in it because it seemed very restricting. I like the concept of a material that isn't as thick as the other skirts, but this material was way too restricting to do any sort of activity that involves lots of movement in.

I got the iris Aura Pullover. I just have to see it on me, it may very well be a return. I think this is a case where $68 is actually justified, the details are nice (gathers at the back, reverse design, super soft material). I also got an Iris pullover. I just love my static black Pacesetter. Also I'm delighted it's iris and not a static iris. Also I couldn't resist the DSC in black. I'm not sure I want black bottoms in the hot summer though, so these may also be a return.

So sad to have missed the iris Aura pullover and iris Pacesetter. Very annoying that things disappear so so quickly!!!

I was really hoping for the Modern Racer Tank in Iris Wee Stripe to be uploaded today, but it didn't happen... :( Has anyone seen that particular one in stores in the US?

Anonymous said...

I have only seen the CRB in iris wee stripe in stores in the US, but I first saw it about 2-3 weeks ago and when I went back last week it was gone except for one or two in larger sizes. I haven't seen it in the Modern Racer yet...

Mel said...

At the time of this post, the Aura pullover is back up, but only in black and gray strip and only in size 8.

Anonymous said...

Good. With the halt in sales maybe the stock prices will lower and I can load up on those instead! Amazing how the price per share has gone up since I first bought them!

Anonymous said...

Yahoooo, I FINALLY got my Iris Pace Setter, which I've been looking for since I saw the pictures on your blog! I've been stalking the uploads and actually stashing some "emergency money" just in case it got uploaded when I wasn't expecting it :D So excited to try it out!!!

I bought the grey/ lilac swiftly SS two days ago so I couldn't really justify buying the LS version today, though I wish I had waited, I like the LS more mostly because it has more pink in it!!

:D Jenn

For those close to the Burlington, Washington outlet store, the violaceous downtime jacket was there for $119.

exhale spa boston has the static snorkel pace setter pullovers, solid snorkel push your limits, snorkel/black astro crops, and a couple of solid black no limit tanks!

Anonymous said...

I agree with RunMama the $68.00 price tag is justified for the Aura Pullover, and yes you do have to size down, I did and I still find it fits big. I wish I could have bought the Iris, it was not available in my store, they are selling out very quickly in my 3 stores.
