A Few Photos of the Latest

It's some sort of a holiday in Canada (Victoria Day - Victoria Day (in French: FĂȘte de la Reine) is a federal Canadian public holiday celebrated on the last Monday before May 25, in honour of Queen Victoria's birthday. The date is also, simultaneously, that on which the current reigning Canadian sovereign's official birthday is recognized. It is sometimes informally considered as marking the beginning of the summer season in Canada.) so there aren't many photos of new products. These photos all came from US stores. I'm not even sure there will be an upload tonight but I'll post if there is one.




Photos of the new Inner Heart bra.

 Fossil/Blush Quartz Reverse Groove Shorts.

White/Fossil Wee Stripe with Beachy Floral Accent Power Y. I like the use of a print trim. I wish lulu did it more often.





More Zippy Run tank photos.

"some kind of holiday in Canada"... lmao... Even though most of us really don't care that the extra day off is in honor of Queen Victoria's birthday, we love our May long weekend... In many parts of the country it's the official start of summer (except of course Winnipeg, where I live, here it's the first mosquito that get's past your Deep Woods off)

I love your blog, but the wording "some sort of holiday" makes you sounds like a condescending and ignorant American. This only perpetuates the already present stereotype.

That was rude

LOL, it's Victoria Day today.

However, I can't seem to access the site at the moment (cdn side) so maybe they are uploading as we speak, or type, or whatever.

Yes, it's probably " some sort of" IT fix. Lol

Melissa said...

Chiming in to say I am another Canadian who doesn't appreciate Americans making dismissive comments about our holidays. Just say "a holiday"! Have respect please.

WOW Anon at 1023. Someone's crabby they're Canadian!

Didn't you just reply like a stereotypical, overly sensitive & politically correct, Canadian? I didn't feel offended. She could have Googled it, but I appreciate her admitting she didn't know. Insensitive maybe, but suggesting she sounds condescending & ignorant, was just plain rude.

And next weekend there's some sort of holiday in the US too.

Anonymous said...

Anon 10:23 - thats a little bit of a stretch to take "some sort of holiday" as evidence of a "condescending and ignorant American." Get over yourself and quit projecting your issues onto someone else. I'm Canadian and no offense was taken. Big stinking deal Lulumum doesn't know what specific holiday it is.

Sounds like some Canadian women didn't get to relax on their holiday weekend.

Anonymous said...

Haha - I meant Luluaddict not Lulumum!! lol -- Of course Lulumum would know what holiday it is since she's Canadian! I love both your blogs!!

anonymous me said...

We Canadians have a little bit of a reputation of getting defensive when Americans don't know our history, and this blog is about lulu, not national stereotypes, so why don't we just call it even and get on with our update watch?

Personally I'm hoping for some new wafs print items to go with my new Porcelaine stash.

anonymous me said...

p.s., I wasn't offended. I laughed.

Anonymous said...

I am Canadian and I feel that anon 10:23 & anon 10:36 are completely out of line, and their comments are way more offensive than luluaddict original statement.
I couldn't name all of American Holidays why should an American be able to name all our Holidays. Luluaddict was just trying to give us a heads-up that we might not get an unload tonight.

LuluAddict said...

I don't expect non-Americans to know US Holidays (or care about them), why do you expect me to know Canadian ones? It wasn't meant meanly. I just knew it was a Canadian holiday and I was too lazy to google it.

I think we(us-women) need a Lulu fix with some new items! This blog is getting intense! LOL

LLA, you should totally be forgiven for not googling a stinkin' holiday wherever it may be. After all, you are giving us your free time on updates, etc. We should be thankful, not cranky toward you. Those who don't like it can shove it where the sun does not shine. IMO.

LuluAddict said...

All righty, post updated so EVERYONE will know what Victoria Day is. ;-)

BORING UPLOAD!

I saved $$ this week. :)

I don't think she mean't anything rude by the comment. I think she honestly did not know what the holiday was. I am part Canadian, but grew up in the U.S. I celebrated holidays from both countries, and have relatives on both sides. It is sometimes hard to keep them all straight... never mind the country. BTW, next week is Memorial Day (in the U.S.) to remember the people who have passed away. It is kind of a big deal. Stop being so sensitive.

paige said...

Love you and everything you do for us here Luluaddict! Crabby people should just go to bed already. Sending smiles to all.....

Wow, get over yourselves! Apparently we are all supposed to keep up with Canadian holidays now. So she didn't know what the holiday was, WHO CARES! Some people have nothing better to do with their time except b*t(h and complain.

Anonymous said...

Wow, you blog followers need to lighten up ! This is a blog about lululemon and if you expect someone to know every single holiday that is only in effect in every specific country, that could seriously blow any chance of having a effective blog being written because she'd be too busy brushing up for Jeopardy (of which Alex Trebeck is Canadian!)
As for Lulumum, she may be Canadian but her blog is hardly more informative than reading a product notification -- LOL --

Minda said...

Thank you for making this blog! It's one of my favorites to frequent! Please don't let any fussy britches get you down! If this was gov't holidays of Canada blog I would be let down!!! LOL

I moved to Toronto last summer so this is my first Victoria day. Maybe it's because I'm in the city, but everyone has wished me a happy may Two Four. As in, this is the start of summer as well as a weekend for drinking lots and lots of beer. They don't seem to take it seriously. It's like a drinking holiday for a lot of people in the city. Seems a lot like presidents day in the US -- which no one takes seriously except to go shopping!

Anonymous said...

Well Wow. Now, we know why human history is riddled with war and violence. If a great blog could make people react so quickly and meanly over an innocent holiday remark, it explains a lot about human nature. So as George Carlin put it: The Earth isn't going anywhere, we are! LOL! Love your blog Lulu Addict and don't let any of those negative comments get you down. They need to get a life.

I bought the inner heart tank in flash and it bleed all over my new white CRB. Ugh - I've heard about this before but never experienced it. The bra is amazing, but be warned about the color.

Victoria day is just a statutory holiday. Its not really about celebrating the Queen for most people nor is it just about getting drunk as the girl living in Toronto stated. Its just about having a nice day off. Most people call it May long weekend. There are parades in some places.

I bought a power y in menthol and zippy rb in white. That's it for me. Only spent 100 bucks! My wallet was forced to take a holiday ( Victoria day maybe?). LOL...

It's hilarious that American's are making fun that it's a Canadian holiday....Newsflash Lululemon originates in CANADA!

Anonymous said...

Don't be an idiot. Everyone here knows that lulu is from Canada, I don't see why that means LLA is supposed to memorize our holidays. And I don't see anyone "making fun" of the fact that we had a holiday yesterday, just that nobody gives a shit. Do you celebrate other countries holidays? If you bought some clothing that was made in France does that mean you are now supposed to know all the holidays and history there? Use your brain.

Anonymous said...

LOL, I'm Canadian and I wouldn't expect an American to know all of our holidays, just as I wouldn't know theirs! I've been ticked at times when an American Thanksgiving means I don't get to watch my regularly scheduled programming (not really ticked, but maybe just a little :)) AND I sure would be ticked if an Amercian holiday I hadn't heard of interfered with an upload in any way! hehe. Jeez, we have to have our Lulu priorities straight! Having said that, I had an amazing long weekend filled with sunshine and got all my planting done - excellent! Luluaddict, I love both yours and Lulumum's blogs and I appreciate your sense of humour. Some of these ladies need to chill out! :) I just ordered the Stuff My Bra tank in the flash combo and hope it gets here before Friday for the Toronto Women's Half! :)

Kristin said...

Nothing. My wallet is safe just for today. But.....headed to a city w/ 3 lulu stores tomorrow!! YIPPPPEEEE. The nearest store is 4+ hours away. I am very excited; can you tell??? My wallet will not be safe for long. I'm sure I'll feel like a little kid in a candy store.

Wow, some people need to relax about the holiday thing! I'm a Canadian, and I would never expect non- Canadians to know about 'victoira day', which to all of us here in Canada is just "may long weekend" anyway. I probably couldn't have told you for certain what the holiday was actually for... no one here cares about the monarchy at all. I also have no idea what the holiday in the US is next week... hope nobody minds!

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know if more shorts are coming out? I've been stalking the site for some turbos in size 6 but there's been nothing but 2's & 4's. Come on, it's summer! I don't need more groove pants right now!

Talk about some crabby Canadians on this site. Relax, it was only a comment. Take a step back from the computer and take a deep breath. She meant no harm by it. reeellaax. Everything will be ok.

As an American, I would never get upset if a Canadian didn't know one of our holidays. Get over yourself and your "some kind of holiday". Far worse things to worry about in life.

Anonymous said...

I'm sure if a Canadian blogger referred to July 4 th as "some kind of holiday" many would be up in hoots about it... It's just the wording lacked any regard for the holiday itself. " a holiday" would have sufficed... I don't expect US Americans to know every holiday, but a little respect when talking about another country or culture is to be expected.

Get over yourself. Can you breathe with your head so far up there? As an American I would never expect anyone not from here to know our holidays. I know LLA meant no harm.

Anonymous said...

Yeah I disagree 6:11..... You're definitely not thinking straight if you think I'd care if you knew or cared about American holidays. Do you know what next Monday is and why we celebrate it? What about Caesar Chavez Day?

To me yesterday was just "some day" because I still had work all day. I really don't care what other countries were doing. No hard feelings just honesty... It is "just some holiday" because it doesn't effect me. I had NO reason to know about Canada holidays.. and as LLA said.. SHE KNEW it was a holiday just was too tired to look it up.

She is probably so tired by the time she gets around writing these blog posts that are all for US!!!! How selfish can you be to call her disrespectful??

Anonymous said...

Get off the blog you party poopers!! This is supposed to be FUN, not about reading into the meaning of "some sort"!!! OMG!!!

oh shut up all of you. Blah blah blah offended blah blah blah holiday. who cares. seriously. I came here to read about some kind of yoga clothing, not to hear about some kind of childish spat over some kind of holiday. Some kinds of people need to just chill when some kind of blogger makes some kind of accidental and innocent faux pas. Im some kind of Canadian and I don't give any kind of poo poo if someone from some other kind of country doesn't know about some kind of holiday we have. That's just some kind of trivial. So you all relax and have some kind of a good day. And just for some kind of good measure; some kind.

Odd Jessica said...

Maybe Canadian holidays should have the date in the title, like " the 4th of July". That would help us all remember them. Goodness, people, this comments thread is getting as heated as an NPR post about religion!

(back to the main topic... Lulu!)

Just received the Cross Your Heart bra that I ordered last week - I am totally in love with Flash, so I was thrilled, and the straps look really sharp! Sits a little higher in the front than my go-to flow y's, but wasn't a problem. I however will have to send it back, as the straps are far too wide in the front - they sort of forced my shoulders back, so while the bra gave me great posture (haha), it was a serious cleavage fest when I did pushups (the material gaped whenever I pushed my arms together).

I am also suspecting that the bra was made for a larger cup size than mine - I got the 6 (usually wear sz4 flow y's) which was snug around the ribs, but the criss crossed liner sort of gaped.

Oh well, onwards and upwards!

When ever we Canadians buy a calender 95% o the time all USA holidays are listed in them and that is why a lot of Canadians know about the USA holidays...in the USA if you buy a Calendar the Canadian holidays are not listed.

Anonymous said...

I agree, Anon 7:58. The bra straps did sit wide apart in the front on me as well which made for serious gaping in the front. So disappointing! Did not look very good uner CRB, either. The larger busted women in these photos look great in the bra--there does not seem to be the issues I was experiencing.

Anonymous said...

@Odd Jessica... another great ignorant American suggestion! Make your holidays sound like "ours (translation, US=world" so "we (again translation, US=world)" will remember them. Can we be any more ignorant?
And to those that will say I whining, why then does most of the rest of the planet feel this same sentiment?
I actually love to visit the states, and I find American people very friendly, but the level of ignorance about other countries is quite apparent.

Anyone with a large chest (think DD+) and a small band size should really really reaaaaally try the Panache sports bra. I'm a 34GG and it's amazing. Lifts, separates (NO uniboob) and holds the girls in place. Also, the back straps have a cool hook that allows it to become a racerback as well. Totally my favorite ever, because LLL doesn't make any in my size.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 6:11 am - Not to keep the bickering going but is Victoria Day that major a holiday in Canada? Our 4th of July celebrates the founding of our country and most towns/cities have parades and fireworks. According to Wikipedia Victoria Day sounds like our President's Day - a holiday to celebrate the queen's (our president's) birthday where people celebrate only by getting the day off from work. President's Day is minor in the US. Memorial Day is a big holiday in the US only because it kicks off the summer season.

When did this blog become a 'cultural awareness/sensitivity training' blog'? I come here to read about clothes not to expect a civic lesson.

Amanda said...

Well I thought the 'some sort of a holiday' thing was cute... and it made me laugh... most people here only have a vague idea of what the official reasoning behind the holiday is.

To be entirely fair as a country we have become accustomed to having approximately one statutory holiday a month and we really don't care what the official reasoning is we just want our day off!!!

Take for example the province of Manitoba (where I am from). The February holiday, known as Louis Reil day, wasn't started to honor Louis Reil. The provincial government wanted to create a stat holiday in February and decided after deciding to create the stat to call it 'Louis Reil Day'.

Apparently we couldn't do what we did with August and just call it the February long weekend...

I think the holiday bickering should keep on until we get a bigger and better upload. What else is there for everyone to do? I laugh. I promise you this though I will relax on my next US holiday so it will not overflow to the next upload discussion. We are all adults. We obviously can afford the finer things in life. We don't like to be told what to do. LLA you're so kind to clarify things. I appreciate you.

Anonymous said...

July 1st in Canada our equivalent to your July 4th (it is also to celebrate the founding of our country). Victoria Day is pretty much an equivalent to your memorial day (kicks off summer).

Amanda said...

I clicked on comments to point out how rude the opening sentence was too, guess I'm not the only one who thinks so, lol.

I appreciate that you didn't mean it to come across ignorant, but the fact is - it's hard to tell how someone "said" something when it's typed word, and personally I did find it a tad rude & disrespectful, ya'll.

Anonymous said...

I can't believe that people really thought LLA was being disrespectful. If Victoria Day was really that big a deal in Canada, that would be one thing, but all my Canadian friends view it as a "fun" holiday, not a Serious and Meaningful Day. Onward, though.

Well I'm an Aussie and I don't know if lulu knows about some kind of holiday in Australia that I don't know about but I'm pretty sure we didn't get an upload :'(

Not to kick a dead horse, but...

Memorial Day isn't about kicking off summer, it's about honoring soldiers who died for our country. I know it has become about sales and summer, too, and I'm as guilty as anyone about forgetting its true meaning in the midst of my day off from work, but just so as not to forget what it's supposed to be about, I had to comment.

I would liken Victoria Day more to Presidents Day. It's about a birthday, not people sacrificing their lives for our freedom.

OK, back to our previously scheduled Lulu obsessing...
