Upload!!!




So, I went a little overboard on the Pink Shell tonight. I passed on all the markdown items and am hoping the in-store deals will be better. Nothing jumped out at me as a can't-pass-it-up-deal. I ordered the Sea Stripe Pink Shell CRB, both the LS and SS Swiftlys since I couldn't make up my mind which I'll get more use out of, and the Pink Shell Stripe Run For Your Life crops since I like those. Not sure if I will keep all of this but I really like the look of the run outfit in the above photos. I am also not sure how the color will look on me. I have a couple of races coming up in January and wouldn't mind a new outfit for them but can also make do with what I have for now.

Did you order anything?

Nothing for me.

Dissapointing. :(
No hugh discounts on most items unlike the Austrailian upload and no bags for sale. I was really hoping for the method bag on sale.

Man I was really hopeful after seeing the Aussie upload...but ugh. Nothing for me--really wanted to spend my holiday gift card on Boxing Day sales, but nothing was priced low enough for me to want to use it! Meh end to a meh year for Lulu.

I waited for the run bundle up jacket in black and instead every other color was discounted :(

Woohoo I rebought my clear as mud pants!! Returned my previous order for more Christmas $$ for gifts but was so hoping they would drop in price!

Thanks LLA! If not for your blog I would have missed the upload. Got herringbone forme pants and a pink ss swiftly. :)

OMG I just spent a small fortune. Somebody stop me!

3 pairs of Bright at Night Crops - I missed the day after Thanksgiving in store so I have been waiting for this upload

Merry Christmas & Happy Shopping

I got the Venus crops on wmtm... that's about it for me. Huge wmtm upload!!! Other than that, nothing much piqued my interest. I will probably check my local stores tomorrow and see if there are any good deals there.

LuluAddict said...

@ yogabelle - the Bright At Night crops are a good deal.

Elisa said...

I looked at a lot but ended up with a pair of the pleasing pants from wmtm. I have them in charcoal and love them so I went with the blue this time. I've been eyeing one of the fireplace jerseys, but I'm not sure about sizing so I didn't want to risk it. Anyone know how these run?

xtizzy said...

I was tempted to get the Free to Be in red, but I wasn't sure if it felt like the swishy "swimsuit" material the laceoflage feels like (which I returned for that reason). I'll have to check it out in store.

I purchased the Elongate tank with the polar cream down the middle and black on the sides. Looks a little playboy bunny-ish, but I hope it's comfy. And I hope they give me cups!

I'm waiting for the black brushed Define to go on sale in the new year, I hope!

I bought the WTF vest in clarity yellow, pink shell stripe crb, bright at night crops. I try to run with reflective garment since our runners' club runs downtown so plenty of cars to dodge in the dark. I don't think I need any LS where I live (TX). The pink looks too cotton candy ish to me. I have seen some of them at the store and I just don't care for a lot of them.

Hmmm I was considering the Fireplace jersey or the St Moritz jersey Tneck however I can't help feeling like I'm paying almost $100 for a pj top.
I bought the WU pants in white herringbone and they have the whole long jane look to them also. I'm considering returning them.
Somehow I don't feel that way about my alberta lake herringbone WU pants_ I absolutely love them---wish I could have snagged the black herringbone.
I also wish the US upload looked like the Aussie one. I'm sure LL could ship those Defines to the US and sell them.
Nothing for me tonight-I don't feel the least bit pressured to buy

Joyce said...

Got the bright as night crops. the WMTM upload was soo disappointing compared to what the aussie's!

Ordered the Lustrous Crops too. Hope they fit.

Anonymous said...

Bought 2 pairs of Bright at Night crops. I already have a pair so I knew my size. Also got the St. Moritz jersey - I still have the tags on the one I bought so that worked out. Lastly, I snapped up the Savasanna sock. Not an amazing deal but I wear these kind of socks with boots and leggings all the time so I'll get my use out of 'em.

This weekend I broke down and bought the Fireplace Jersey but haven't received it yet - so not sure of the size or fit. Elisa - I'll report back once I get it.

I got a Runder Under LS in Black and Dog Runner pants in BS. The Beaming Blue were on sale but I'm not so into that color. WMTM was a disappointment. Unfortunately I won't make it into a store until I return from vacation in January so I will miss out on most. That's OK--I am not overjoyed with anything right now. I almost went for the Runder Under pants but I already have one pair and I don't wear them much because I'm so afraid they will pill. Isn't that silly?

If in between sizes go up. Tight across bust.

wonder when we'll ever see loot on the HK/SG site. the lulu prices are also ridiculous there..

I wanted the Run Bundle Up Jacket in all black as well, or silver/polar (but they didn't have my size), so I settled for the Limitless Blue. I have been waiting for this jacket's price to drop. There are some good choices (runder unders, l/s shirts or t-necks), but they can all wait, I'll think about it (and am OK if they sell out before I decide).

I ordered the pink shell SS swiftly and the back on track tank. I hope the color is more like the photos of the LLL models rather than the girl running in the snow but I am guessing it will be somewhere in between. Hopefully the pink shell swiftlys are a bit paler than the CRB. I just got my beaming blue SS swiftly and the color and lace print are really nice. I don't like the color of my beaming blue no limits tank as much - it's a bit bright. I also ordered the black compression socks from WMTM. I like the pink shell LS swiftly as well but I can't warrant another one as I always take them off after my 5 - 10 minute warm up as it gets too hot even first thing in the morning in the middle of winter. I'll try to get into a store to try the sea stripe pink shell CRB. I'd like a heart rate monitor bra for my Garmin but I don't like the look of the all sport bra - the straps look too thick to work under a racer back tank. What tops does everyone wear them with?

HPSauce said...

How long is the WMTM sale on for? Also, I really love the color of the pink shell Forme jacket, but I'm not near a store and I'm not sure what size to get... I have a size 8 in my Scubas, but really maybe should have gotten a 10 as they squish my girls a bit too much... And I have a comfortable size 8 in my BTC jacket. I'm thinking a 10, but I've heard that if it's too loose, that's when the shoulders will pucker, but my damn girls get in the way of everything!! (32H so smaller waist, larger chest...)

I got several pair of the split set pants and a pair of the runder unders to replace a pair I paid full price for but have the tags still on from Nov when I bought them.

I am an early riser and was watching the news around 5:30am and they said the mall that has the LLL nearest to me (McLean, Tyson's Corner) was opening at 6am. I gathered up my returns (Runderunders and a pair of speed shorts) and hopped into my car and boogied down there. They had a lot of the same stuff that was on WMTM and a few things still full price that were on WMTM. I did get a St. Mortiz Jacket for $89 (I wanted to try it on for size), $10 less than the website but that was the only real difference or better price in store I observed. The rest was pretty much all the same as what was online. I was in and out of the store and back home sipping some coffee by 8am.

Happy holidays to all of my fellow Lulu Addicts and I want to specially thank the #1 LLA for all of the great information and entertainment this year. I wish you health and prosperity and most of all, happiness in the year to come.

Got the turn around jacket that I have been eyeing. Goodbye Christmas gift cards! Still debating the pink shell swiftly and inspires. I already own a light pink LS swiftly so its hard to tell if the pink shell will be significantly brighter.

purrfiktangil said...

I've been waiting for some of the winter running stuff to be marked down so I picked up the toasty tech pullover in black (I gave in a few weeks ago and got the cream and ended up loving it for all my complaining about it but there was no way I was getting two at that price-point), and the speedy turtle neck in beaming blue to layer under my running jacket.

I love pink, but I am not sold on the pink shell and fear bleeding issues. Has anyone had any trouble with pink shell and bleeding?

Ear warmer, dog runner pants, ice queen shirt. Considering Bright at Night crops, too... LOVE the pants.

Anonymous said...

Wow...nothing caught my eye. Same old same old just in a different colour. Would love to see more outdoor heavy duty wear since many of us Canadians still workout outdoors opposed to a hot yoga studio!!

Anonymous said...

Ordered the shell pink swiftly SS (love the lace patern on my beaming blue one) and two pairs of turbos I've been waiting to hit WMTM. Overall though I must say that this upload was very disappinting, I mean what was LLL initially going to upload today if the shell pink stuff had been released earlier like it was supposed to be? I want some variety!

Also that pink forme jacket is a shame. Looks aweful fitting and cheap in every photo... Too bad,I would have bought that color in a define in a heartbeat!

ptg said...

Elisa - the fireside jersey is a snug fitting TTS. There is very little stretch in it and I know a few people sized up for shoulders/chest region.

I know my store won't have any MD more than what's online. I'll go tomorrow to return/repurchase two of my items (Bold in the Cold LS and the WTF pullover). I love the fireside jersey and have it marked to return but may reconsider with the repricing.

Jen said...

Bought the beaming blue neckwarmer at $19. This will be really nice for skiing. Debating going back into WMTM and picking up some additional items. Didn't even get to the new stuff yet!

macfrannie said...

I was removing tags from some of the items I have purchased since they started their holiday return policy (just in case they had a price adjustment) that I have decided to keep and I noticed that the love red devotion LS has a hole in the lower side that was covered by the tag. It looks like it got nicked with scissors. Luckily I hadn't removed the tag yet. I was able to re-order but it brought to mind the holes you had reported people dealing with in the tender violet ones. I remember when I bought this one in the store that the first one I had selected had a hole in the shoulder, same color. I wonder what is up with that.

Bought the Beaming Blue Bundle Up and decided I would go back in (just did) and bought a pair of Runder Unders. I have tried these in store and I did like them. At that time I declined to pay full price though. They weren't a must have for me, since I have a lot of running gear. They won't work for very cold winters in Southern Ontario but I will wear them come early spring or next fall. We do get some temperate days in the winter so I expect they may get a whirl this season.

I flipped through the sale items, but for me nothing was marked down enough to warrant a final sale buy.
like the earlier poster, i wonder what they would have uploaded today had the shell pink items not been delayed. Huh.
I do like the shell pink color a lot, but I have SO MUCH pink from the last couple of years that I already feel a bit Barbie when I head to the gym, so I'm passing. Thanks for the updates, LLA.

Got an email today from one of my stores and they have a mint moment swiftly headband in store, so we must be seeing the mint hit the website soon. Here's a link to the headband (not sure if it's on the Aus. site yet or not)

i did order 2 crbs, some shorts for my husband (he loves the run response and the orangy red will work on his dark complexion), and a running shirt for him from wmtm.

i had ordered the pink shell power y a few weeks back- i do like this tank for casual wear on vacation, i prefer the old fabric but i wore the one i have to death on a hot holiday, thought the pink would be a fun change from the white i do have. i am going to return it as on the bra front, there is a patch of fabric that is 'unlined' (between the bra cups if that makes sense) that leaves a vertical line right between the girls. imo, it would not have been a large cost to put a lined piece on this 1/2 inch or so of fabric?? anyways, be wary if you are ordering it, it ruins the look of the tank imo.

i knew the fabric was what it was when i ordered but i am frustrated by this as it is not visible on the website shots.

For those of you looking for the Run: Bundle Up in black. check your local store. I picked up the black Run Bundle Up at my local store today for $149! So glad I didn't bite the bullet last night and pick up one of the other colors! I also bought those shell pink RFYL crops. This is my first pair of RFYL crops since LLA raves about them so much I just had to try them in this cute color!

OT I have exciting news for anyone who has Bordeaux Drama and Split Pea items from the early fall! Last week I went to target to check out their Neiman Marcus collection that went on 50% off, I bought the Proenza Schouler sweatshirt pullover and am wearing it for the first time today with my Bordeaux WUC and it perfectly matches!!

http://www.target.com/p/proenza-schouler-sweatshirt/-/A-14209674#prodSlot=medium_1_4

The pictures online really don't due it justice of how it looks in person. I don't have any split pea stuff but I really think it would match perfectly with this color! I'm excited to wear it with my all my BD stuff and for only $15 its quite a steal! For size reference, I am typically a 4 in lulu and got this in a small because I wanted it to be a slouchy.

Seriously disappointed with my stores markdowns, very low discounted stock/inventory, and half of the online markdowns were not the same in the store (on case anyone is wondering whether or not to brave the freaky rain storm we are having to go to the Palo Alto store...stay home!) In fact it was a complete waste of time, and I actually returned something without buying anything else.

I will order a couple of things online now that I know they are not marked down in the store, I was just hoping to get my R & D on top....oh, and the one thing I almost did buy was the merino Pitter Patter in polar,(looked like an online return) but #1 it wasn't marked down enough, and #2 it was torn at the top of where the pocket attaches to the body. So those of you thinking you might want to size down, I would't because that will put extra stress on that area of the pullover.

Moral of the long story? Don't feel bad if you don't live near a store, you are not missing anything. But online if there is anything you want.

Also, Anthro sucked too! fyi

Anon 10:41 I agree about the Target sweatshirt, super cute, but I ended up taking mine back after I realized the whole world was going to own that top, especially after the 50% mark down. It's bad enough wearing the same Lulu as some other people, but I'm not wearing the same Target (and I already own too many clothes I use as pj's)

Elisa said...

Thanks PTG (and others) for the info about the jersey. I decided to pass on it online, but if I get to my local store in the next day or so I'll try one on. Still a little too pricey, especially without having tried it on. I did go back online and got a pair of the black swan split set pants. I had gotten then before but wasn't thrilled, but this time I sized up since I plan to wear them casually and not for yoga necessarily. I also decided to get a few more of the fly away tamer headbands. I got the basic black then picked up the inkwell too. I love that it is a dark navy.

My second visit to WMTM yielded me the bright as night crops (thanks for the rave LLA) and the toasty tech zip up in polar cream. Don't know why I missed picking this up my first go around, it's perfect for skiing in the morning and running in the afternoon without a whole heck of a lot of changing clothing in between.

Anonymous said...

11:23 a.m., our cashiers have said in the past that they will match online WMTM prices. So it's worth asking, if you know a price from online. I know they don't have to mark down WMTM stuff in store, but since our cashier stated this, and you have the r&d discount, it's worth asking (I have r&d discount, too, so I have the same issues).

I'm on the fence about the limitless blue runder unders. I have the black and heathered slate ones that I just love! Since they are solid on both sides (no awkward shinguard-esque color blocking, I wear both sides. I'm on the fence with the limit blues because i would never wear them on the side with the CY color blocking. I know some people complained that you can see the color blocking on the solid side of the runder unders. If anyone have these or has tried them on, I would love to know if the Clarity yellow color blocking shows through on the solid limitless blue side? Thanks so much in advance for your help!

I was excited to find tons of the devotion t at the Santa Barbara store, but only marked down to $39. They said that they don't match the online prices. Poo. So no $19 tee for me. I did pick up a Shell Pink Bangbuster.

I got another fullstride skirt polar and creamcycle shorts and the rose top and also the savasana tote. I will probably make use of that bag. I love the skirt I already have 2 and I wear them all the time even for hot yoga.

@ Anon 11:47 I always try asking for a price match! But even the store manager said that she couldn't get some of the things she wanted that were marked down online. I'm a firm believer in "if you don't ask, you don't get!" lol

I made it to my local store today at 11 am and most everything on sale in size 6 was gone. I hunted for the black bundle up jacket and they had none in my size. I left empty handed. I tried on the thick st motriz jacket which is super soft but no hood and too heavy to run in. Oh well.
