Pump It Up Jacket, Pump It Up Tank, Right Round Pant, and More


Pump It Up Jacket ($128) and Tank ($68) in Light Flare.

 Crane Crops and Power Up Tank. Both are made from Silver Luon.


 New Mint Moment Daily Yoga Jacket, Sea Stripe Vinyasa, and Do It Up Duffel

Another photo of the new Run Right Round Pant. They are lined and water resistant. They might not be bad as apres pants if they were solid colored.

Pink Shell Swiftly and Classic Stripe organic Under Pants. I think most stores have the bottoms on markdown now but am not sure. I got caught wearing this swiftly in a rainstorm today and I'm happy to report it neither goes sheer or bleeds when sopping wet.
 Black Cool Racerback and Polar Haze Sea Stripe Wunder Under crops.


 Flip Your Dog bra and Astro Wunder Under Crops (I think)

 Some more Not So Basic Tees. I like how they fit on these ladies.


Shape Jacket, Run For Your Life Crops, and Shell Pink Sea Stripe Cool Racerback with a Swiftly headband.

We already "did" Flare recently, can we recycle some of the other colors again before we have this one as a repeat? Bring back Surge and Aruba, please Lululemon...
Also, it looks pretty chilly in that last photo...I hope she's going to wear more than that for a run :)

I noticed the Run for Your Life Crops (one of my faves) was on mark down in the Beaming Blue, but sold out in my size. I called the local store (Richmond, VA) and they said they still had one in my size, but it was not marked down. I was hoping to get it and then haggle when/if it ever got marked down, and to my surprise, it rang up for $64 instead of the $88, and it didn't come up as Final Sale, either (not that I would return them at that price). I was shocked but didn't say anything. I guess you just never know what to expect with Lululemon, eh?

What on earth is going on with that duffel bag? Is that colorblocked too?!?

That is one ugly Do It Up Duffel.

Stop the madness already with the colour blocking on the Run Right Round Pant! Perhaps I'd look at them if they were solid.

Carry on with the ugly LLL, I'll carry on not buying (and not from wmtm either!)

Okay...where are those striped unders?! I can't find them anywhere - I live on the east coast (USA). Has anyone seen them in the stores?!

This jacket looks horrible- like the cheap Nike ones that made go to LLL in the first place. All of the recent designs look cheap :( $128? Really?

My new years resolution is to get down to the body fat % of the girl in the flip your dog bra and astro wunder unders doing warrior 2. SIGH. Why isn't easier?

Yippee! I am so getting the Polar Haze Sea Stripe Wunder Under crops.

Sorry for the OT post, but I was wondering if any of you ladies could weigh in on the Strike Tight. I had been waiting for a pair of regular WUs in Limitless Blue, and they never came (I cant do the reversible or the high waisted), so I was thinking maybe this could be a good substitute, but am hesitant to pull the trigger in case they are a disaster. There are only 6 reviews on the website. Has anyone here had issues with sheerness or fit? Does anyone love them? Thanks in advance!

Am I the only one who thinks the pump it up jacket is just really odd looking?

The tees look much better on those women than the other pics so far.

@ anon 7:17 pm - The Strike tights are super low rise in the front. I had on lulu technikini underwear when I tried them on and the underwear waistband showed above the Strike Tight in the front.

Are they serious with that "Pump it up Jacket"?

I am a long time fan of their Scuba, Stride and Define - which have ironically all been axed. I continue to see them put out 'replacement' products that are supposed to - in the words of an educator in my area, have more of that 'it' factor and innovative design... Yet everything is ill fitted and plain atrocious.

I have seen this 'Pump it Up Jacket" modeled on three different girls, each and everyone of them look like they have saggy arm pits and breasts which have fallen into their arm pits.

Why is there all this extra material!!??? Are they trying to make room for armpit hair or something?

I don't get it.

This makes me so sad, I really want more jacket pieces. I try on these new styles time after time in hopes that maybe I can learn to love them... but I just can't. I am so torn.

The girl in the winter is from Edmonton- I got that in an facebook promo photo album from the Whyte Ave store. It really warmed up here from -30 degrees celsius to -5 degrees celsius so she would be wearing that on a run for Edmonton... that is super warm for Dec/Jan... :)

Thanks LLA for the info re Strike Tights -- that's exactly the kind of info I was looking for/worried about. Happy New Years everyone!

Holy Cow, that really is a low rise LLA, so really they're commando gear.

Wax Poetic said...

I should also mention that these color combinations are becoming more and more obnoxious. Other stores provide a little hint of color blocking here and there - not an ENTIRE season of it.

I can not help but feel that the color blocking is related to a business strategy. As everyone has pointed out, LLL stores are becoming more appealing to young girls. Younger girls love their labels, and if they spend their disposable income on something expensive - they want the world to know it. I can spot any of these new lululemon styles from a mile away - and I would not have to be a serious shopper to know this. So if a girl is wearing anything Lulu to school, I am sure everyone will know it.

Perhaps some women actually like this, but as someone who prides herself in simplicity - and found love with a brand that did just that, I feel really disappointing I have such few options.

I know price adjustments have been an issue, but have any of you buys had luck getting price adjustments for items bought at the regular price that falls within the holiday return period? Or did you guys have to refund and re-buy it at your local store?

@ 7:17 PM, sorry I haven't tried the Strike Tight on yet but want them in the Black Swan version. I like the low rise.

Amanda said...

I have a few defines and one shape jacket and even though I like the shape I feel like it is a down grade from the define. Lulu will prbably bring back the define with thinner material and it will be more expensive.

@ 8:34 PM...I'm in Ontario. Sorry, but at -5C weather, that outfit would still absolutely not be warm enough.

Marti said.... funny thing those Classic stripe B&W Under tights are selling for $100 on Ebay. I hear they are plenty cheap instore. I thought they were WU but they are cotton and most likely sheer.

I need 2-3 more tech pieces and my workout gear is complete.

The Classic Stripe Organic Under Pants are on markdown already?! I just went to my local store (SD, CA) today and they just put it out recently (Fri or Sat), along with the Beaming Blue and Black Laceoflage Under Pants. =(

Hmmmm. I ordered the pink stripe crb and the pink stripe bra----- none of the pink is really moving at all. I wonder how long until it is marked down?

Marti said... Can anyone comment on the Skinny Will pants in pique? Feel, length, fit and etc??

@anon 7:17 Don't be surprised if the Strike tights are see thru though. I owned some Strikes from the last time they were available a few years back, and I didn't mind the very low rise but even back then I thought the fabric was a bit different. Thinner, even in the black (white stripe), which is why I ended up selling them and why I didn't buy the blue ones this time round. I always felt like my backside was not really covered.

It was before all of the recent issues with sheerness so I never did the "bend over" test. I'd be interested to find out your experience! Please report back!

Im sorry, but 80-90% of everything released from Lulu in the last YEAR has been UGLY or poor quality, after reading all your reviews. Pass! pass! PASS!!! LOL

So sad, got a buch of lily gift cards for Christmas and nothing to spend them on as I refuse to buy triangle gussetted, cheap, unravelling, sheer bottoms or I'll-fitted, equally as cheap, overpriced jackets. So sad :(

I'm from Alberta as well- I overheat when I run and I'd wear that in -5 no problem...

@ 10:59 PM I saw the organic under crop and pant in store marked down for Boxing Day/Week, $44 for pant, $29 for crop. Not an item that interests me.

Anonymous said...

OT but with all this lulu anger did anyone see nordstrom's new workout line they are launching called Unit-Y? I suppose its marketed to a bit younger of a set than Zella but the price points look good to me! I am loving my live-in leggings so I am hoping this will be of similar quality.

What store? Thanks!

Hey back at you Minda!!! Well, you know me, the crazier the print/pattern on WUC, the more I like it! ;P Happy New Year to you and yours! Happy New Year to all!!!
