Rumor: Green Is Coming

Reader Staci writes in to say she heard we will be getting items in the green color from the Blurred Blossom print. Looking forward to that, if it's true.

What do you guys think the chances are of a concord grape scuba and/or a concord grape/heathered concord grape crb?

And/or a vinyasa/infinity scarf as well?

It looks really close to teal zeal.

Bunch of restocks on the website--for example, flash WUs in lots of sizes and grey ebb&flows in 2 and 4

green?? I've been waiting for green but this one looks more like teal.

becky said...

Agreed.. It's a pretty color, and I'll happily take it for a change, but it's not really green. Lulu seems to have a prejudice against true green for women for some reason (I want Clean Green!)?

Really this is no big news, green always comes out and it will be teal again so boring!

OHHH I would LOVE an It's a Cinch in the Blur Blossom!!! Hope it comes to the US-bummed that the Bliss Bag in Rose Quartz is only on the Canada side -:( Still waiting for the Black and White jacquard CRB's-anyone see them in the US?

If we do indeed get items in the "green" color that's in the Blurred Blossoms print, it's going to just resemble that color, Toothpaste, that was out in the past. Or perhaps a slightly darker version of Aquamarine that was already out this year. I don't look good in either of those shades, and I didn't buy anything in those colors, so if that's what we get again, I still won't buy any. Where's the real green, lulu???

It is pretty but not really green. I want real green...not lime or teal or turquoise...just a beautiful solid green

yogibabe said...

Agree with all. I want "real" green. I have plenty of the "minty" version. Please...Real Green! A cinch dress in Blurred Blossom, on the other hand, is very welcome. :)

Why can't they just make a true green?!? The pinks and teals of blurred blossom make me queasy. I need to check it out in person so I can find a top with more purple than pink. I like corals, but chalky pinks do nothing for my skin tone.

talking about new colors...anybody notice the new color "Currant" for CRB and Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve? It's an odd shade of red and I don't know what to pair it with besides basic black, gray, & navy blue.

MonkeyGirl said...

I agree- the 'green' in the blurred blossom print isn't the true, clear green I'm looking for.

This is most likely way off based and weird conspiracy theory-ish- but I'm going to speculate anyways- does Lulu not having true greens have any connection to the reason some Bikram studios don't like people to wear green? There's all sorts of unfounded theories as to why that is, none of which I know to be true. What I do know is that my local Bikram studio asks that you not wear green, but gives no explanation as to why.

The again. Lulu has evolved away from true touchy feeling stuff, they are much more about the bottom dollar (regardless of lowering quality and at the risk of good customer service) so I can't see some hypothetical philosophical issue with the color green (which seems odd anyways) would be a reason for no true green production.

@anon 7:33, currant is an old color actually... Not sure how those random CRBs got onto the website since those couldn't possibly be returns due to how long ago they were out. Weird?

@MonkeyGirl... I don't do Bikram yoga, but I had never heard this before about green. That's so strange! Green is such a peaceful color...

Just found this about Bikram and the color green... Not sure how accurate it is though??

Lulu makes green for men.

Call it run gear and then there won't be a yogi conflict. ;)

M.E.L.R. said...

I've been thinking all morning about how to describe the colour of green I want lulu to make. The best I could come up with is I want the green version of "Paris Pink" or "Flash" if that makes sense to anyone else...

Focus said...

Lulu did a great job of restocking all the run swiftly SS and LS, now I don't have to get any on eBay:)

But quick question, I purchased a SS V neck swiftly off of ebay last month, no specific color was listed but it wasn't lavendar, lavendar dusk or black swan. It is a darker purple vs. a lighter color. And in looking at the Australian release V neck concord swiftly, the one I have looks almost identical. Can anybody speculate what color I may have purchased and how that compares to concord swiftly that is
In Australia?

Sad that the color green gets this rap. Wth? Green also signifies life, ripeness, and calming at the same time.

Like someone said above, Lululemon isn't above gouging us with prices and using sh*tty dyes, yet they ARE above honoring a weird anti-green story?

oops! meant "they ARE above ignoring a weird anti-green story" LOL

Lulu! enough with the blurred blossom. It looks like a wicker couch cushion pattern from a Boca Raton retirement home.

Ugh. That's not green... That's teal. I want a REAL green. Like the savage green they had a bit ago. Now that was a beautiful colour. I'm sick and bored of teals and light blues!

Anonymous said...

I really liked Savage (and would prefer to another teal/pastel green), but I would still say that it wasn't as true green (think grass) as it could be. I want a shamrock-loving, true green to make an appearance this spring/summer!

Anonymous said...

I would like a minty-green....it goes well with tan skin. A Kelly-green is not for me. The green that's in the Blossom skirt - perfect! Its an 80's revival-green.

Anonymous said...

@Focus, could it be grapeseed? Def not dark like concord grape.

Agree with other comments that they need to quit with the teal and make a true green.

MB said...

I feel like I have been complaining about this since I first started wearing and buying Lulu. Savage green is the only real green I've seen in the few years I've been a customer. There are more than enough light, minty/oceany/toothpastey blue-greens, and didn't we already have the green equivalent of flash with wild lime? Agree with others here who want a real green, something as dark as kelly green, or maybe (maybe!) even emerald. Somebody want to start a petition?

I'd never heard of the anti-green stance in Bikram before. Another Bikram-related anecdote to shake my head at. Lulu would be crazy if they were somehow holding to that... but I don't know if I would completely dismiss that having something to do with their avoidance.

Tracy Reifkind said...

The green equivalent to Flash was "porta-pottie", or some sort of spelling like that. I guess green is the color of portable toilets in Canada? I purchased that CRB way back 2-3 years ago and unfortunately at the time liked my tanks shorter so I had it altered...which I no longer do, so I don't wear it as often as I could, but it is a nice bright and deep green. It came out when they had that diagonal green and black plaid.

Lulu also had a "Clean Green" scuba that I could kick myself for not buying...(still kicking myself for not getting the black swan).

I've practiced bikram for over 6 years and I knew about Bikram's (THE Bikram) dislike of green for some stupid superstition, or something, and I highly, highly doubt it has anything to do with it.

I too will be disappointed with another teal/aqua green but I'll move on!

Anonymous said...

Bikram Choudry is strange...but I sure hope that lulu does not adhere to his superstitiousness. I love real green, as in grass, shamrock green. So, get with it lulu!

Emerald green!!! Would be awesome.
