The Latest Power Ys Are in the US and More




The new Albert Lake green striped Power Y is in the US now. Shown with Bordeaux Aphrodite crops and Cross Town pants. I only want this color if it's coming in a solid form, particularly in a CRB or a Scuba hoodie.



Shown with the My Mantra Pant


The new Polar Cream / Silver striped Power Y is in the US, too.


The Creamsicle Pop Power Y is here, too. I am going to wait for the Cool Racerback.


No more plain white mailers from the website anymore. These aren't so easy to hide from the hubby/S.O. (Thanks to Ms. S. for the top photo.)

A comparison of Studio Pant colors - Indigo on the left and Black Swan on the right. (Thanks to Ms. D. for the photo.)


One of you quipped in the comments that lulu was getting this latest palette inspiration from the Halloween decoration section at Walgreens. You weren't too far off.  ;-)

I may cave on the luon light power Ys for the alberta stripe

the girl in the purple speeds and creamsible power y is yet another example of improper sizing- those speeds look like they are going to burst at the seems, they're pulling all over the place!! The ones that are 2 way stretch do this moreso than the 4 way i realize, but i still think a size up would look better? I was excited for these speeds to get uploaded though, but NOT looking forward to the scratchy liner though :(

I am just not a fan of this alberta lake striped Power Y. The size and color of the stripes are a little too Cosby Sweater for my taste.

Neither of those striped tops looks good with the bordeaux pants! Blech.

LOL to your last photo!!!!

I think I know the answer to this, but the power y's are still the Luon light? They seem to be.

I want a Bordeaux scuba. Do most US stores have them now? Maybe the website will magically produce more.

I just got my rose herringbone astro pants. LOVE them! I'm 5'0, 110 lbs, and the size 4 is perfect. I don't even need to have them hemmed which is a huge bonus for someone short who doesn't live anywhere near a store. :)

I LOVE the rose herringbone -- it's so soft! They are different textures -- the rose is like a soft knit and the herringbone is, well, herringbone. If anyone got the flow y bra is this, I'd love to read your review. That bra is really temping me now...

LOLOLOL I'm dying re: the last photo! On their own, I think each of these colors are pretty but together and right by Halloween!

LLL please stop with the horrible color palette and bring on the alberta lake teal CRB, Define, and Scuba!

I'm probably in the minority here, but I like that Lulu is releasing a Halloween-esque color scheme for fall. I hope they continue it with a nice red and green around Christmas! I like dressing in holiday colors (not from head to toe, of course), so I think the current colors are kinda fun. And I also like that they're offering so many colors at once...that's always been a huge bummer for me about Lulu when compared to other athletic brands...that they stick to like 3 colors at a time, release only a few items in each color, and if you don't jump on them you're stuck with black and grey. They might be moving a different direction, but I like the abundance of options.

I can't stand those pants with the ribbing at the hips. Terrible design.

On the new packaging/mailers. Darn, wish they'd not have done this! I'm, allowed to receive stuff at work but it looks a little more professional when it's just a white bag. I don't feel so self conscious. Now I will.

LOL - on the last photo. I was just thinking this when I saw the orange/black combo.... maybe the need to revisit color theory.

Iam just not digging anything :(

Love it. I can't wait for the Lululemon Halloween edition instore party. Mix in some of the dots from the perfect layer tee, with creamiscle Pop, with bruised berry crops. If only I had snatched up that tutu from last year!!

I was just thinking about the packaging, I also get my lulu stuff at work and I am not going to be Ok with the lulu logo bag arriving at the reception desk.
I also went to the local store to get a bang buster headband and the lady behind the register said "I don't need to tell you these are final sale you are a regular" yikes!

BAHAHAHAHHAHA!!! I laughed my head off when I saw the last halloween photo. I love that you posted it LLA!I was wondering if I was the only one who thought the colour palette and NLT was Halloween-y.

I don't like how the stripes don't line up between the front and back of the Alberta Lake Power Y. If they release a CRB with this fabric (and I hope they do because I don't like power Ys), I'd want the stripes to line up.

I heard from an ED today that whatever the strap colour is on the Alberta Lake Power Y will be coming out in a WU.

They can't even get the stripes on side seams to line up on the PowerY? Looks cheaply made because of that. Bummer!!

LuluAddict said...

Stripes that don't line up bug me, too.

I'm not a fan of orange nor purple... and the two together look hideous ! Just as tacky as the last photo you posted LLA ! :) Sorry, no offense but I would never wear these two colors together. I wouldn't mind seeing a nice brown, the teal color in the Alberta lake and other greens.

I do like the look of the power Y's. I would LOVE to be able to wear one of them, but infortunately my 32H girls would never look that good or perky in one! lol
OT: does anyone know if the pretty pink swiftly's are sheer? I really want to get a pretty pink top to go with my BD Astros, but I'm concerned my bras would be seen through the top. And I don't want to have to wear a tank underneath either.

I have the white ss swiftly from this summer, and the only bra that cannot be seen under it is my wacoal nude sports bra. Im not sure what the pink is like, but I'm imagining it is similar. Love the color with bordeaux.

Thanks for the info!
