Upload!


A few new things have been added to the website. Nothing to tempt me tonight. There is also some new We Made Too Much.

I noticed all of the cross stitch stuff is gone from the US site. Did it sell out or did they remove it because of problems? I still have the crops on the way but I will be returning them.

The chevron scarf is now labeled as "luon light"!! I just bought one online two days ago, under the impression it was rulu as labeled. Annnoying!!! That means this scarf is most likely going back!!

So I realize I am starting to sound like a broken record, but I was really hoping for another style in the tech fleece or even new color options. But alas it was yet again not to be :(

The chase me skirt would have tempted me in black with the black laceoflage print layered on it, but I already have it in the navy white print from earlier in the year, so I can't justify two different blues.

The new versions of the Runder Under LS are pretty tempting too, but I just don't know. I tend to prefer half or quarter zips when I need long sleeves running. Of course without any tech fleece maybe I need one to layer. Ha.

I see what 2-3 new things uploaded?? (Canada side) LOL... They upload stuff a few days ago and then throw us an overpriced sweater and now they add just a few more things and they call this an UPLOAD?! bahhahah! WOW...THAT WAS PATHETIC! Nothing like throwing us an old bone, or dangling a carrot in our faces!! WORST upload ever!!! :( Ive been saving so much money lately from Lulu spending and just using that money for new Frye Boots, designer purses and Burberry Clothing! I have loved Lulu, for well over 10 years, but my love affair, is ending very soon. I think we're headed for divorce! It was good while it lasted. Crazy prices, poor quality, overall bad customer service, when you have to call them and poor designs, led me to this!

Question to the floor! I had a "price adjustment" granted to me after calling and arguing with the GEC. Was told...I would see that price adjustment, on my credit card in 1-2 days. it's been 5 days already and nothing, so I called Visa. the credit card people tell me they don't see ANY credits posted to my account! how long before I should see their credit??? Or did they lie and not do it?! help!! anyone know?!

too similar to my porcelain beachy floral

macfrannie said...

Well, I didn't get anything new but I did get the Spin it to win it tank from WMTM and I plan on returning the one I paid full price for. Other than that, nothing floated my boat from this upload. I'm sort of relieved. My CC needs a break.

Kinda pitiful markdowns...underwear, headbands, and a couple small things. I was expecting the Beaming Blue CRBs to make a debut, darn.

I ordered a Swiftly turtleneck in my "big" Swiftly size so it's not too tight. I'd been considering one, but not at full price. Easier than remembering a Buff or gaiter on winter runs!

Pamela said...

ugh! did anyone else notice the vinyasa scarf in chevron moved from rulu to luon light? I ordered it when it was under rulu. The online educator is telling me she has only seen it as luon light and would like to know if I have a screen shot of it as rulu. Am I going crazy? help!

Anonymous said...

Awesome. Ordered the chevron vinyasa a few days ago when it was listed as rulu and now it's joined the rest of the Luon light crew. When will LL get the labeling right and/or when will I learn to stop trusting them!

I bought like a drunken sailor tonight! Lol :) I got the RFYL crops in blue and laceophlage based on LLA's rave reviews. I also got the heart opener tank to try since I suspect it will land in WMTM and I want an idea of the fit before it goes to final sale. I also stocked up on undies because I like LLL's foxy thong more than my Hanky Pankys for every day wear. I also liked that they have the laceophlage print in the undies. Then I bopped on over to Ivivva and bought some Rulu stuff.

OT: Yesterday morning I was driving and passed a woman biking. She was wearing what looked like luxtreme crops. The morning sun was shining on her and her crops were see through like black pantyhose! I literally saw her entire behind as if she were riding naked. My first thought was, "I wonder if those crops are Lululemon!" Obviously I still buy a lot of LLL, but what a shame that a brand that used to be the pinnacle of athletic wear now is the first brand that comes to mind when you see a garment with a quality issue. I really do miss Chip!

yogibabe said...

FYI: All "cross stitch" items have been pulled out from the website due to quality issue-fabric too delicate to withstand wear and tear of normal usage. (LLA mentioned this issue in a previous blog.) GEC will process returns with free shipping, or you can refuse delivery or even try it out and return at a reasonable later date, at no charge. Just got off the phone with GEC and have it arranged to stop/refuse delivey. Bummer coz the fabric is really pretty, but this time it seems that lulu is being responsible and I was told that all who purchased this item will be contacted in regards to this issue. (Not like the last time with a tank with the straps that were defective.) Hopefully everyone who are affected will be taken care of. :)

HPSauce said...

So what's with the two uploads per week? Will Lulu continue this trend until after the holidays?

sophia said...

love b/w laceoflage, but have no love for beaming blue laceoflage! had the crb or the chase me skirt been uploaded in the b/w, it would have been hard for me to resist. but alas, nothing for me.

Karin said...

Nothing tempting in any uploads lately, but I did buy 2 Spin it to Win It tanks that just got moved to WMTM last night.

I have two of these already and I love them. I don't have to worry about showing any cleavage when working out, which I normally do with any of the Lulu tops that I own.

I know that people didn't like the placement of the darts on this top, but I love the high rise neck so much that this doesn't bother me.

Anonymous said...

I bought the RFYL crops in the laceoflage. I really like the other pair I have - they cover my tummy and muffin top pretty well!

Anonymous said...

Whatever:(- No beaming blue CRB that was all I wanted because I returned my LB one, to blah for me.

Anonymous said...

Not sure if yall noticed but the runder under tops were released in the same fabric as the turn arounds from last year. Also looks like i was correct and the beaming blue vinyasa is pique as well!

Jen said...

Nothing for me. Waiting for the beaming blue U-turn. Tempted by the swiftly turtleneck, but thinking the neck part might be too tight.

Sandra said...

It's was under Rulu for DAYS! I wanted it so bad but didn't order it after I recieved a ras glo in luon light. I don't trust the online description for for scarves at all any more...

LuluAddict said...

Thanks, yogibabe!

I really love the beaming blue color, but I'm not a fan of the styles out right now. I can't get over the boring look of the runder under ls and pullover. Those seams can't be too comfy, either. The chase me skirt looks cute, but the outer layer totally rides up if you use it for anything other than running/walking. No order for me, I guess. I really loved the star runner pullover with it's pretty detailing. Wish they would have made more of them!

I've finally decided I should pull the trigger on the Off the Mat fleece - I've wanted it for the past year and stalked on eBay for a while but wanted to try it on first.

Now I'm torn between black and black swan...I have so many black tops/fleeces, but this is nicer looking and could wear as a jacket for teaching...decisions, decisions. Considering buying both and then deciding but not sure my cc can handle that. Anyone receive theirs yet and have any fit/color/style comments?

Thanks

I too ordered the chevron scarf when I thought it was rulu. Super bummed :( probably will be returned.

Malia C. said...

@Pamela... You are NOT going crazy!!! I WISH I had a screenshot to prove you right, but I don't. That was the FIRST thing I noticed with this upload... that the chevron scarf moved to Luon Light. LAME because I won't buy any Vinyasas made out of that awful material. I am disgusted by Lulu's customer service. The GEC ppl are shady and dishonest. I can't believe she said she's ONLY seen it in Luon light, considering I saw it under Rulu yesterday afternoon. LIARS!

Anonymous said...

Same here. Annoying!!!!

luluFemom said...

Sitting on the Runder Under LS - the new piqué ones seem like they'd feel similar to last year's run pullover, but there are no pictures of what they reverse to - is it solid black or black and white stripe like the scarf? Honestly, I'm so confident most of this stuff will wind up in WMTM (or there'll be another "adjustment" to the merino line), I feel no need to pull the trigger with my usual lightning speed.

Anonymous said...

I just checked my order confirmation email and it is listed as just Vinyasa, while the clarity yellow one I bought as a gift says Luon Light. There's your proof!

I received the Off the Mat jacket today that I ordered on Cyber Monday. Definitely going back. It's way too complicated and the neckline is enormous. There are two zippers to have it zipped up, there are a few snaps on the neck piece I couldn't figure what to do with... For $178 the jacket should work a little better..

@ 5:15 AM - I've never had to deal with them for a credit but if it should have shown up in a few days and it's now been 5, sounds like you need to call again or e-mail. Especially if your CC company also sees no activity.

@ 6:29 - observed a similar situation when I was walking to the subway this fall. Two women on bikes. The one in the back, I saw the LL logo and they appeared to be WU's. Bad idea. Lace undies very clearly shown to the world. I thought: hope she goes ahead of her friend, her friend will let her know.

I got my chevron vinyasa scarf in the mail yesterday and it is definitely NOT rulu. I did see that they had recategorized it to the luon light which annoyed me a lot -- can't they get their labeling correct??? I kinda didn't think the scarf was going to be rulu from the pictures they posted, but I figured I would hold judgement until I had it in my hands.

Anyways, the chevron scarf is 2 layers of luon light sewn together so it is actually quite a heavy scarf. The black side has a normal luon feel, but the chevron side is quite polyestery feeling in my opinion. I like the look of the scarf, but I'm not positive I'll keep it.

I returned the rasp for that reason, and I'll be returning the cheveron once it arrives :(

Anonymous said...

I got one in black swan. I love the feel of it - so soft and snuggly. I love everything about it except for the collar. It is friggin huge and really takes some effort to make it look nice. For $178, I'm not sure I can live with something that's not perfect. If the collar was a smidge smaller, I wouldn't hesitate to keep it.

Anonymous said...

FYI - when I asked for the price adjustment on the vest, I was told it was now a final sale. WTF? Lulu is totally losing me as a customer.

Had to return the raspberry glo vinyassa, will have to return the cheveron due to mis-labelling, have to fight for price adjustments....

I had one and Im super slender. the off the mat jacket, I liked mine and then hated it, so I sold it. Im a HUGE lover and collector or Lululemon items and in my opinion, it was an overpriced coat, with no hood for colder days. I hated having to go though 2 different zippers to get the whole jacket put together. personally, for me...it felt like a straight jacket! :(

OT quick fit review- I ordered the strike tights and received them yesterday. I ordered the black/black version. The Luon is not the sheerest of the Luon, but it's definitely not old-school Lulu standards. I bent over in front of my bathroom mirror, and you could subtly see through them. The fabric is thin- you COULD see any lumps and bumps. The gusset is a triangle, but it's not set so far back so I'm okay with it. The placement is similar to the Luxtreme crops. The waist IS super low, but I like it. My midsection is lean, so that feature worked well, BUT I do have a little cellulite, so I did NOT like the weight of the fabric. I will return these because of fabric weight, but I wanted to let everyone know that if you're okay with the lighter weight fabric, these are an okay choice. Fit TTS. I am a size 4 in WU and Luxtreme crops, and I ordered a 4 in these also.

Last, I bought a pair of Nike Pro seamless crops, and they are AWESOME. Just like Ebb & Flows, except the waist is lower and they have some ventiliation at the back calf. They're half the price of E&F and not see through at ALL. The fabric is much better for bending over than LLL's version. Just in case you are interested! :)

Was definitely, without a doubt, under rulu!

Lulufemom - They show the reverse of the black/white pique RU shirt. It took me a minute to notice. If you look at the stripes down the arms, one pic has white stripe toward the front, black toward the back and the other pic is the opposite. Also on the opposite side you can see the small stripes just like the vinyasa. I don't know about the black/coal one, I can't tell from the pics. I we t abead and ordered that one anyway though, I loved it.

i can't believe all the hoops Lulu's CS wants you to go through in order to get ordinary customer service. Really? they mislabel items, change the labeling, and want you to provide PROOF that they did that? And what's with the not being able to get price adjustments on items that go on sale within days of being released? Or this "final sale" BS because something went to WMTM *AFTER* you bought it? Totally unbelievable.

The luon light scarves swing tag still says made with rulu.

I'm not a fan of luon light vinyasas. They're scratchy and quality is meh. return them, or at least express your disappointment to the gec and get grumpy. They should cover return costs or should you decide to keep it, perhaps subsidize it with a gift card.

Thanks very much for the Off the Mat feedback!!!

Pamela said...

@Malia C. and all the others who are frustrated about the chevron scarf--thanks for making me feel sane!! I didn't get too grumpy with her b/c we have a showroom so I can return it with no cost if I don't end up wanting it. Still annoying though because I was so excited to see that print in rulu. Also wondering--who actually takes screen shots of items they purchase??? Guess I should from now on from lulu...

Mksaka said...

This makes me laugh.. I bought both black and black swan and love them both SO much! I already own so much black (scuba, define, back to class just to name my lulu items!) but I feel like it matches more. On the flip side the black swan is unique, and pairs nicely with... Well... Quite a bit. I must say one thing though... I feared that the black swan would look cheaper/less refined than the black... But to my surprise the color is still dark enough to look classy. I think I'm leaning toward the black swan! In my opinion it looks nicer in person than on the website photos!

just FYI the laceoflage two tone speeds are the stiffer two way stretch
