Brief Store Report

I ended up returning the Om Pants I ordered and bought the Bruised Berry Swiftly tank. Swiftly tanks have turned into my favorite hot weather run tank. I hope there are some more interesting colors coming before they disappear in the cooler weather. I now have it in Paris Pink, Pop Orange, and Bruised Berry. I also bought the new Bruised Berry Bangbuster.

I tried on the extra long Cool Racerback in the Mirage print and liked it. I wish this came in a regular length CRB because the most intresting part of the print ends up all bunched up on me.

I also tried on the new Pow Pink Scoop Me Up tank and loved the color on me. I hope some tanks that I wear, like a regular length Cool Racerback or Swiftly, will be made in Pow.

My store (Fashion Island for you locals) did not have the new Wandering Yogi Halter, WY Tank, or Perfect Tee. They did have the new Lucky Luon headbands in Pop Orange and Pow Pink. They did have a nice markdown rack and now all the rashguards are on markdown.

How 'polyestery' did the xl crb in mirage feel?

Jamie Barba said...

I'm addicted to the swiftly tanks too! Gonna get it in pop orange & pow if it comes out.

OT, the Run in the Sun dress popped up in a 10 in WMTM. I immediately put it in my cart, but I'm waffling on whether to get it as I haven't tried it on & can't return it. I'm a curvy gal with a 38D chest. Any feedback?

What made you return the om pant? I'm thinking about ordering them.

LLA what did you think about the Scoop Me Up? Was fit good?

I wear flow y and would like to order the energy. Would I order the same size as the flow y?

I bought a pow pink cool racer back (regular length) last night (Halifax store), so they are out there! I'm still waiting on a bruised berry one..

I noticed yesterday that the mirage print looks a lot like he flickering lights print at Lucy that is currently $14.99 plus an additional 25% off for this cute T.

I would love to love the swiftly tank too :( but they don't make it in a size 2 and the size 4 is just too low in the underarms for me. Boo.

Katie, you are so right, that Lucy top looks very similar to Lulu's new print. Interesting!

Katie said...

I was shopping the sale at my Lucy store yesterday and came home to check the site for my size in a hoodie I wanted and found it! I find a lot of things that other companies knock off of lulu...but if this is on MD it was obviously there 1st. Super cute for like, $10!

@jamie I think a 10 in the run in the sun would work great for a 38d. The dress is a bit stretchy and I'm glad I was able to snag one. I normally wear an 8/10 in regular size pants and a 10/12 in button up blouses for reference and I found an 8 in this dress was just fine for me. Good luck and I hope it works out for you.

Katie, good catch.

Also noticed mirage like print (taupe and toffee versions too). Does look like Lucy's first, all on markdown:

Though not a dress, this Mind & Body Tunic is way nicer than the Cover It All dress.

Gals... I need some serious guidance on the XL. CRB. I ordered silver, mirage, and lilac online. I downsized and it was a mistake. And it's luxtreme and not Luon like the website said. They seem very see through and tight. Do you think I will like them if I reorder in the next size? I am usually a 10 and ordered 8s. Or does the luxtreme just suck and I should pass altogether? I have to return the 8's to my local showroom, and if I order the 10s and hate them....there is NO WAY I could come in a week later and return the next size up!!! So.....return and get something new.....or return and reorder in next size? Gracias amigas!!!!!

I don't like luxtreme crbs as they tend to show every lump and bump, especially the lighter colors. Plus, for me they ride up during exercise.

@Anon 4:57, you seriously just made my day! I miss the energy bra so and just picked up the black in my size cuz you can never have too many black sports bras :)

Anonymous said...

Just got my order with the Clam Diggers and XL CRB in mirage. No smell to the CDs and they are sooooo comfortable and cute! This is my first pair of them and it's instant love :)

XL CRB is not as exciting. I love the print, but like LLA says, the most interesting part ends up bunched up around my stomach. It's definitely not a soft CRB--not scratchy, but just not soft. The tag says luon light, though I know some people have said it's luxtreme. The white part is see-through, if that matters to you.

Yay, for more Energy bras! Funny that they have more black, as I just bought 5 (!) black Energy bras on MD just a few weeks ago.

For Lucy buyers, use JUNEHEAT for free shipping on any amount.

@9:15, I hate the feel of Luxtreme. I much prefer Luon to the bathing suit feel of Luxtreme. However, you should not feel bad about returning items to your showroom. Lulu's setup makes that unavoidable. Plus, it makes for some excitement for someone who finds your returned item.

re: Scoop Me Up, I was feeling them all in store today and the pink is far softer than the others. Just in case people order pink and then are inclined to order more because they like the softness. I may get the black sometime, as it did look nice on me (5'4", 120, 36C).

@5:16, the Om pant didn't look good on me (5'4", 120), and the recycled polyester fabric felt weird to me. Soft but weird.

Amy B said...

Hmmmm. So if the mirage is see thru, are you to wear a layered tank underneath, or just a white sports bra?

Anonymous said...

I have the luxtreme crb from last year. I don't mind the fabric, but it definitely rides up during a workout. Also, it shows sweat easily. It would be a definite pass for me this year.

I tried the scoop me up tank in my store. It just didn't look right on me. I miss the old scoop neck now for sure! I have broad shoulders and a d cup... The thing that turned me off was that seam under the boobs. Oh well. Everyone is different.... Hey, I was probably one of the few who liked the side boob zipper front tank from spring. That actually worked on me. Lol!

@AMYB

You should not feel bad making some returns. Who cares what they think. You're a customer and should be happy with your purchases ! :)

I recently just discovered the swiftly sl too. I've bought the ray, bruised berry and pop orange. I like them better than crbs especially now since its hard to find a soft crb. The swiftlys are also so fresh and cool against my skin! I love them and want one in pow pink! I've wondered why they don't make swiftlys in prints ?!

The Scoop Me Up tank arrived today and it's a keeper. No chest sagging with the cup inserts and minimal armpit pouf. Feels like there's enough support for jumping and running too. The color is deep indigo, so the unusually high empire seam is unnoticeable. I'm a 34B and wear a LLL size 6. Go team Scoop Me Up!

yogibabe said...

@AZ Lulu Fan
Yay!!! Team Scoop Me Up is growing. I am bummed that the Deep Indigo that I ordered early yesterday morning, and has received order confirmation, has just been cancelled due to "lack of availability". I hate that nonchalant email that you receive saying so , and saying it very flippantly. Calling GEC! (Not that I'm holding my breath for them to do something, but who knows...they might surprise me yet.)

Jamie Barba said...

@macfrannie, thanks for the feedback. I decided to hold off. Since I'm gonna be in SoCal in a couple of weeks & Orlando in August (how many times will I visit the outlet?) & I was unsure, I decided to save the $$ for all those stores I get to visit!!

Anonymous said...

@yogibabe
Sorry that the deep indigo Scoop Me Up tank in your size sold out so quickly. Bummer to get your hopes up and then get the cancellation message. You'd think a time sensitive cusomer fulfillment business like LLL would use a real- time inventory control system. Hope it's restocked soon. Can't wait to see what other colors are introduced in this tank!

AZ Lulu Fan said...

@yogibabe
Oops, sent 5:50 msg without adding my name.

yogibabe said...

@AZ Lulu Fan
Thanks for your message. I too am hoping for more colors in this tank. Would love it in Pop Orange and Bruised Berry. :) (Already have Ray, Pow Pink and White Metallic Silver!)

I want the BB swiftly racerback so badly! It randomly disappeared off the Canadian website right after it had shown that there were still all sizes in stock. I emailed GEC about it, a week later they answered that it was sold out...makes no sense. And I don't live by a store so can't get one : ( hope it comes back in the next upload.
