Photos and Rumors

 Photo of the April Wee Are From Space Power Y and Heathered Menthol Cool Racerback.

Refreshingly cool - Menthol Swiftly and coordinating white/menthol speed shorts.

 A reader forwarded her store product notice (thanks, Elizabeth!) that showed a heathered Ivory Flashback pullover. Has anyone spotted this one in person? It hasn't shown up in the store photos yet.

A birdie passed on the following rumors - there is a maxi dress coming out and the only one piece in the swim line is the monokini I posted earlier. There are no tankinis.

Anyone know why the We Made Too Much has disappeared from the site?

OMG I was just going to post the EXACT same thing... maybe totally between seasons? Has anyone seen that done before?

Speculation is that they will be doing a big upload. You can get to using the search box and search for "we made too much"

that's dangerous.

i noticed the light flashback in my product notification as well - i contacted my local store/s and reps said that this was an old pic from last year (heathered oatmeal or something like that - spring 2011) and that all that is coming is deep coal - one never knows though so fingers crossed as i would love one!
byw, did anyone ever see the flashback in deep navy?? as posted on LLA on april 23?

Kinda off topic but has anyone washed the mediate pullover in the wash? I know it says hanwash but just wondering what would happen??

Focus said...

Flashback in Navy is at the king of prussia store in PA.

Focus said...

At least that is what the PN said

Katie said...

My store only had the navy and gray ones. I tried it on. Way too bat man for my 5'3" frame.

An Ed told me last night that the new swimsuits are also going to be reversible.

PCS said...

Both the Irvine and South Coast Plaza stores have the flashback in Navy. Went to South Coast Plaza today & got the power y in wee are from space April & the porcelain dance studio jacket. They also had the white dance studio jacket. I usually prefer purples & pinks, but this porcelain blue is beautiful in person! Reminds me of UCLA blue. I didn't even consider getting it until I saw it in person. Especially since I just bought the concord grape & white DSJ this month. I'm feeling a bit guilty but not guilty enough to leave the store w/o the jacket!

Kate said...

Why does Lulu even bother with swimwear? Their swimsuits are always way too flimsy for any sort of athletic/sport purposes, but they're not really the cute/sexy just-hanging-out style either.

It's a shame, because they could easily come up with some good performance-focused suits. Something similar to the Scoop Neck Tank would make a great tankini top.

A version of the Scoop Neck tank and a pair of boy short bottoms (a la Boogie shorts) could be very useful, I agree. Or a Push UR Limits-style tank. A short sassy skirted bottom would be cute, too.

I have the heather oatmeal flashback from a year or two ago, I've seen a few Navy ones out. There were some problems with the pricing on the WMTM site/page. The Good karmas were marked down (finally) and other items but once selected and placed in your cart they were at full regular price, so I had to call to order my items. Anyway the WMTM has been pulled since then -Wed or Thurs morning?

Charlene said...

Is there a certain time of day or week that WMTM is updated? Or is it just random?

Thank u Focus, Katie and PCS re: navy flashbacks. Really appreciate it! :)

In the last few days, I've been at Irvine Spectrum, South Coast, and Fashion Island and none of them had the oatmeal Flashback pullover. They all had the navy and dark gray, but I couldn't even find a size 4 to try on. (Though I'm reading most people size down and I'm a 4 to begin with.)

I was also really really naughty and splurged on a porcelain DSJ. I LURVES IT SO! It's already one of my fave jackets, so I definitely love it in this color. *swoon*

I'm super curious to see what all gets added to WMTM. And I'm also wondering if the reduction of the Pedaler bag means there will be a new small sized purse/ bag. I'd love a small LLL bag as I don't ever need a giant gym bag.

What do you guys think will be added to WMTM? Maybe some cinch dresses (she asks hopefully)? is there typically a big mid/late spring WMTM upload? There's a good amount of MD in our store, but nothing interesting. I wish those harem pants would stop taking up precious real estate.

Minda said...

I am trying hard to look as awesome as the woman in that menthol swiftly/speed short outfit! Inspiring and Freshclean!

The harem pants must die!

Love my porcelaine DSJ too! My third DSJ, so far. Have the Dune and Concord. I stayed with my regular size and have no problem with the arms being tight. These will be mr "summer" jacket as I put my collection of Scubas away for the warmwer weather.

Santa Barbara has both the Navy and Grey Flashback Pullover bvut not Oatmeal. None in my size (4) to try. But since most people size down in this, I don't think I'll even get the chance to try it on. Do they even make this in a 2?

yogibabe said...

Yikes! Not "mr" summer jackets but "my" summer jackets! And I guess you can figure it out that I meant "warmer" weather. Just can't seem to spell tonight!

Is LULU EVER GOING TO FIX THE WEB SITE - WMTM?????

The lululemon athletica Facebook page shows quite a few comments asking about the missing We Made Too Much/WMTM section. Here's one of the many similar gec replies:

At the moment we don't have ETA for the section to be restored. It's a top priority for our IT crew, so rest assured they are working hard to get it back up and running as soon as they can. If I hear any updates, I will be sure to let you know. Thanks for your patience.

Of course, it is ludicrous to even suggest that there is no IT problem with the WMTM section on the Canadian site, but only problems with the US & Australia sites! But wait, the Australia product notification emails show that lululemon is shipping OLD merchandise to Australia and charging full price for it, along with newer styles & colors. So, is that part of the real problem & real reason why lululemon does NOT want to discount items for its US customers, since Australian customers can buy from the same WMTM section? Instead, the gec lies to its customers with a ridiculous excuse about US & Australia IT problems, but no Canadian problems. What fools! Does lululemon truly believe that its customers are foolish enough to believe than nonsense? They should be ashamed of themselves. Enough with the attempts at manipulation and brainwashing. Tell the truth for a change lulu!!!
