NEW! Dew Berry CRB and Matching Inspires Are Hitting the Stores!

Dew Berry Reversible CRB and matching Inspire Crops
The past week has been crazy busy with tons end of the school year activities but today was the last day so I can finally get back to blogging - hooray! The new Dew Berry color is starting to arrive in stores with items arriving in a Reversible CRB, Bliss Tank, and Inspire Crops. This color is pretty close to last year's Potion Purple and I have some comparison photos to share with you. The big rumored markdown sale has not happened yet but a woman posted on one of the boards that she bought a Wren Denim Define on markdown for $79 at her local store and sharp eyes have noted that it is no longer on the website. Hopefully this means Lululemon is preparing a big upload to the We Made Too Much section. Lulu is offering free overnight shipping through midnight tonight in honor of Father's Day so it's conceivable the markdowns will hit after that expires.



It looks like new CRBs are going to be fully reversible so you can flip it and show off the colored stitching on the inside. There are lulu symbols on both sides now.

This is a comparison of Potion Purple, on the left, and Dew Berry on the right.

This is a comparison of Violaceous on the left and Dew Berry on the right.

Still crossing my fingers for the Loot , hopefully soon! Liking the Dew Berry a lot and the Reversible-ness of the CRB. :)

I wish they'd get on it with the markdowns. I need to order a gift card and don't want to do it and then order again if there are items I want.

@Luluaddict:

Do you find the CRB to be flattering? I am a bit busty, and I don't want andything to over accentuate that by showing clevage!

Thanks!

I like the new inspire crops in dew berry (based on these pictures) but would it kill Lululemon to release a grass green? They used to have a color like that a year or so back and if all they are doing is re-releasing the same colors with an extra drop of dye in the vat then it should not be to hard....am I right?!??!

I saw the denim wren on sale at my local store. I picked up the white Mind Over Matter jacket for $79. I was hoping I would get that one on sale. Yay!

dewberry...wow, there's a stretch of the imagination. that's the best they can do? i'm liking the green idea. haven't seen a decent green since savage green.
wrt: markdowns. my local lll had the wren denim defines for $79, mudra pants for $59, the same stuff that's online, tons of savasana wraps for $59, and a few random pieces on sale. i picked up a grapeseed pure focus and deep breathe for $39; black full eagle tank for $44. the salesgirl was mumbling about grapeseed being a sale "color". there was a lonely athletic deep v in white in a size 12 on the rack :0 i wonder what box that was in the bottom of...

If anyone is near Seattle UVillage, they're having a sidewalk sale this weekend. The markdowns aren't that cheap (most bras are $39 or $34, I got polocrosse crops for $59) BUT they have a ton of stock. There are lots of wraps (savasana and mudra), pure focus tanks, deep breath tanks, PUL, lots of power ys, astros, grooves, WU (in pique!), all sport bras, 50 rep bras, etc. If you're in the area, check it out.

surprised they are not charging more for reversible.

My local lulu (San Diego/La Jolla) has a bunch of wren denim defines on markdown to $79 too! A few ta ta tamers and flow y's as well.

I'm hoping there is a new loot upload soon, this week's new upload was so tiny too!

I miss the SE CRBs of last year, with the different color piping, mesh backs, different color threading, etc. I can't get that excited about reversible CRBs.

Kate said...

I've been waiting for a true green too.

It seems like for the past couple of years, the only colors they've had in heavy rotation have been berry/plum purples, turquoises, teals, and lavenders. With the occasional dark blue, orange, extremely pale pink, or faded zap/citron yellow.

RunMama said...

I agree Kate - potion purple, purple crush, violaceous, very violet. And now dewberry. *sigh*

Are they ever going to upload the Loot? A lot of stores have marked down the merchandise that are still full price online. Get with it already!! The closest store for me is a couple of hours away, so I am depending on the uploads online.

absolutely ridiculous price change on ALL Scuba hoodies in my store today! Cheapest one (solid colour) were $108, striped ones were moved up to $128 and the ombre ones were a whopping $148!!!! Apparently this is a permanent re-price!!

NEW LOOT!!!

momof5 said...

WOW -- I would be so mad the hear if they are repricing the hoodies -- I think they are an expensive treat at 98 -- but 108 to 148 is INSANE for a sweatshirt -- there are no technical features to justify the increase -- they are pricing themselves out of the market -- I know cotton has gone up in price -- but JEESH!!

Loot was just eh - for me -- nothing I really loved or wanted --

@ momof5, feel the same about loot. Picked up a Manduka towel because I've always wanted to try one. Glad for the sale price.. yawning at the remaining selection. Oh well!!

Arghh! Just finished lunar yoga class. Missed loot upload.

Just ordered the Revitalize Tech shirt for full price yesterday. Today it is marked down to $39. Just my luck. :-( I wish Lululemon did price adjustments for at least 24 hours. Now it's sold out (must've gotten the last one in my size) or I would've gotten another and returned the original one. Sigh...

The repricing of the scuba hoodies is ridiculous when you consider that the price of cotton and other materials has plummeted by more than 20% in the past month! There's no way I would ever spend that much for a hoodie!!! They really are pricing themselves out of the market, and I don't think those price increases will stick. Greed is NOT good Lulu!

Why did the wren denim defines fail? I bought one on loot just now, along with the wren denim w.unders and potion purple power y. Great outfit, huh? :)

momof5 said...

double wow -- rumor confirmed according to facebook that the hoodies are being repriced --- that is insane!!! I wonder why C Day would state in the quarterly meeting that core items will stay the same price and then come out with a reprice of a core item -- the mgmt is so slack and just outright liars -- I am so annoyed

@anon 3:53 am - I think the Wren Denim Define is a tough color to pull off. It doesn't work for a ton of people. It's tough to coordinate unless you've gone all in in the heathered sand dune, pink mist, or tinted canvas print items. I think it looks nice with purples. I really like mine and I think eventually people will be seeking it out on ebay or the Exchange. Also, maybe people have OD'd on Wren by now.

OMG-is that $148.00 CAD or USD for the dip-dye scuba hoodie???? I just ordered it online for 108.00, just in case tomorrow the price raises. They've taken off the solid color scuba hoodies from their website.
