Upload Discussion - Part II

Wunder Groove crops with a pig pink waistband were uploaded tonight. They reverse to all black. If this was a grays and blacks pattern or pigment blue or purples, I would totally get another pair of WU grooves but I never buy tanks in pastel pink. I hope this means more colorful waistbands are coming in these.

I was kind of tempted but the pig striped cabin long sleeve but it reverses to heathered silver spoon. I already have the black cabin that reverses to gray. If this had reversed to solid pig pink I would have bought it.

There is a very pretty solid pigment blue cabin long sleeve but that also reverses to gray. I don't get why most of the cabins reverse to gray.


The new Lively Tees are very cute. I am waiting for one in striped silver spoon.



New In Stride jackets were released. I kind of like the pig striped one. The black pique In Stride is also very tempting.

The Flash Swiftly racer back is tempting but I really want to try this on to get a better sense of the color on me and the size. I haven't bought or tried on a Swiftly tank in a couple of years. There is also a CRB coming in Flash so ideally I'd like to wait until both are here to make a decision.

Pretty new Define in Pig. The Pigment Blue one was also uploaded


A bunch of new Pacesetter skirts were uploaded tonight. I know a lot of people really like this style.

I was very tempted by this Cross My Heart tank tonight but I want to try it on. I tried on the Cross My Heart tank so quickly at the store I can't remember if I sized down in it or not. I know my initial impression was nice enough but I needed it in a better color to get me to buy it. I also want to see whether I can carry off the all-over stiped look. The CRB in this pattern is also very tempting.

I ended up ordering this Soot gray Metal Vent Tech tee for my husband as a Valentine's day present. For once it isn't an odd color and the price is pretty good - $39. The Rugged Blue Run Response shorts I got him for Christmas have gray striped so this would go nicely. The Canadian side has a lot more mens items on markdown.

Thx so much for the heads up! I had just checked the website an hour before your posting. Finally got the sizes I needed for once!

Where is the new daily gym bag? I hope it is coming soon!

hmmm... I really want a pair of the Wunder Groove crops, but don't love the pig pink waistband... most of the time though you can't see my waistband since I'm shorter, plus these reverse to black which is a plus. What to do, what to do?? I'd like to hold out for another waistband pattern, but they seem to upload this style infrequently. Did I read other comments previously that a new plum color is coming out? If so, I might wait for that instead.

Did the Canadian side get the swiftly tanks also? I didn't see them.. Hoping I didn't miss out!

Hey Carolyn. Check and see if the swifty has the silver stripes in it or if the silver is woven into the fabric. If it has the stripes it snags very very easily. I have one from last ear in persimmon ? and it snagged day one. The others are much better.

Why don't they make the Swiftly tanks in size 2? Just like the CRBs, I need to size down from my usual 4 for tanks that has no bra/support. I have the Cross My Heart tank in black/white black microstripe, (the microstripe strap detail is very cute, rather than plain black) and for me they are TTS (32A). A friend (34DDD) tried it on, also TTS, but she passed on it due to spillage possibility for our yoga classes, especially in poses that includes inverted twists. I love this tank alot. Flattering and feel that the straps are so much more comfortable, and my shoulders/back feels free-er than my all time fav/go to Power Y. Will probably get the silver spoon. :)

Does anyone know anything about the "It's getting hot in here bra?" I see that it's new and haven't seen anything mentioned about it on the blog. It looks really cute but I'm not sure how much support it actually provides.

check out the hot move shorts pictures in flash and pigment...the close up shot of the back is badly photoshopped...they photoshopped away the area between her legs...oy

They did it to the front close-up as well. It looks like they were trying to make her thighs thinner. I would have much preferred athletic, well-buit legs.

Just got these in a PN from NY. Hopefully these are coming for you, LLA!

Just a warning...double check all items in your cart for size and color before checking out. Both items I put in my shopping cart were not in the size I had chosen. I almost purchased a different size. When I tried to correct and update the size, the color changed...and then when I changed the color...the size changed.

JMO, but really cant get excited by all the stripes...feels like the kids section of Target. On the other hand, love the gray color in the men's tee. I agree, LLA, finally a men's color that isn't "odd."

Wow, sounds Luke every time lulu fixes one thing on the web a worst problem pops up. Thanks for the heads up

Just bought the Wunder Grooves. Love them. They don't come out all that often, so when they do I jump at the chance. NO MUFFIN TOPS with these ladies. It's a nice high rise waist!

Speaking of photoshop, this one looks pretty bad http://shop.lululemon.com/products/clothes-accessories/women-skirts-and-dresses/Hot-N-Sweaty-Skirt?cc=9960&skuId=3434376&catId=women-skirts-and-dresses

It's the rear shot of the Hot N' Sweaty skirt with persian purple waistband. The front image was also altered to make her leg appear thinner.

To Anon 7:27 AM that happens when you have had an item or items on your shopping bag for a little while and the particular size you want, sells out before you go back to your shopping bag to finalise the checkout process. What lulu automatically does is to select the next size still available in the colour you had in your bag. That is why when you try to select your size anew, the colour changes to that one still available in the size you want.

So yes, it's important to re-check the size and colours of the items on your shopping bag right before you check out, specially if you have had them there for a while.
It's so annoying that lulu does that as opposed to just let us know the item we wanted is now out-of-stock in the colour and size we wanted, like the Gap online shops.

My store (Atlanta) listed a pair of Wunder Groove crops with a black & grey quilt waistband in the PN for this week, so it looks like more colors will be coming in these.

Anon 8:40...thanks for the info! I was still able to order the size and color I wanted...let's see if i get a shipping confirmation now.

How come some stride jackets have a hood and others don't??

Anonymous said...

At anon 6:56am, I bought the It's Getting Hot in Here bra and thought it was much more supportive than the Dignity and similar to an Energy , if not more. I like the adjustable straps and that they are convertible. FYI, you can see the wrap front slightly under a thinner tank like a CRB and since it's low coverage, a slight flattening out above the bra under the tank. I'm a 32C.

Just_jill325... "in stride" doesn't have a hood. "stride" does!

@ anon 1048 hank u! Makes sense now!!

Loving the pigment blue In Stride. But I've been holding out for a Define that I now think may have been a mirage. Did they ever make a Define that was persian purple but with little stripes like the Run Your Heart Out pullover??
A definite "no" will free me to buy this new In Stride.
THanks!

Anonymous said...

2nd thought on Define: Perhaps if there was no persian purple stripe, it was a leftover royalty space dye? I just saw it in the store 2 weeks ago. And didn't grab it. Kicks self hard.

@ anon 7:10 am - Thank you! Whohoo! A neutral band in Wunder Grooves. So excited more waistbands are coming out.

@ anon 8:40 am - Thanks for the tip about how the website works when you leave stuff in your cart for too long. So weird it selects another size and color for you.

@ just-Jill325 - One style is called the In Stride - that has no hood and the other is the Stride, with the hood. Lulu started making Strides without the hood last year.

@7:28, I agree, the stripes look cheap and juvenile to me.
Love the wee stripes, just not the big ones.
Unless it's a Poncho Hoodie. Sigh.

The shopping cart issue...it would appear that yes the shopping cart will change/bump size &/or color if in there too long, however, it doesn't mean the item is sold out. (and by too long I'm talking 10 minutes while I weighed heavily on another item, lol) This happened to me and I still placed the original order I had intended. I got a shipping confirmation for that order. The items weren't sold out...so maybe this is just an issue with leaving things in the cart for too long? Wouldn't be surprising that there is yet another quirk with the website, lol.
