Upload!

A few new things were added to the website tonight. I bought this at the store today so nothing for me tonight? Anyone order anything?

I hate these anemic updates twice a week. At least I live on the west Coast so it's not that late but I feel sorry for anyone who wakes up for this. The only reason I bother is due to a stupid hope that the Ebb and Flows will get uploaded but I should know better. We aren't getting them until spring :/

Piqué bang buster....that's it.

Well that was a tiny upload. I was hoping for the Bold in the Cold Pants. Perhaps we'll see those next Tuesday. Any later and I'm going to start not ordering or having things shipped to my mom's for when I am visiting over Xmas. I know others have said this but LLL seems to really be dragging their feet on new products (or maybe it is just new products I want).

I am still tempted by the Draft Dodger Jacket --- thanks for the review LLA in the earlier post. And for the review of the new pique pullovers and LS. I was curious about those too. I am tempted by the BB LS one but sometimes when I see it I can't help thinking PJs haha so I haven't been able to pull the trigger. Perhaps next week or perhaps never... :)

Nope. I've been waiting for the Bold in the Cold pants -- they look functional even with the icky lace panel. Since they didn't appear I bought a couple of Sugoi winter tights instead. Thanks to whoever posted that tip on this blog!! It's December already and I need something -- the Ice Queen pants aren't cutting it. Tired of Lulu's business model.

Didn't order anything. Did pick up the Beaming Blue CRB in store and recommend, it's soft.

Just a second Swiftly turtleneck from WMTM :)

I didn't notice the pique bangbuster last night but I ordered it this morning.

Did the beaming blue devotion long sleeve show up on the US side?

Just the BB CRB and the striped speeds-- hoping for the new print WU crops -- but no luck --or at least the new scubas -

That was a very very sad upload :( I didn't order anything. Nothing was even remotely tempting! It was about the saddest upload ever! Which is very disappointing this close to Christmas. They didn't even move anything to WMTM. So sad.

Just a pique bangbuster for me. Would have gotten the BB CRB, but I already have the Power Y, which I really love. It does run slightly bigger in the chest than my other Power Ys though.

I too was looking for the "bold in the cold" pants. I called the Lulu website to find out if the pants would be for sale online. I was told that they have "no idea ", at which point I had to laugh! Certainly seems to be this years Lulu's theme: they have no idea.

i actually like the more frequent, albeit smaller, uploads. i don't stay up for the uploads, though becasue i don't order anything online anyway since i have an R&D discount and it takes over a week for anything i order to get to the east coast and i'm too impatient. i'm also lucky to live in nyc and have 3 i pass fairly reguarly, so it's not a big deal for me to pop in a lulu and get what i want once or twice a week. i can understand how the small uploads are frustrating if you're staying up to order online. however, for me, i like them because i like not having to wait an entire week to see more new product. plus, i think the large uploads can sometimes be overwhelming when there are a billion new things. i'd rather a few new items be released every couple of days.

oh, and for those waiting for the bold in the cold pants - they're in stores in the us! i bought some on tuesday...they're really nice. so nice i'm thinking of ebaying my outward bound pants because il ike these better! i would guess they'll be on monday's upload since they were here in nyc LAST monday (and nyc is not known for getting products early)

I went to the Lulu store where I live this morning to do an exchange on something I had bought for my hubby for Christmas. I ended up leaving with more things for me. Which suprised me. I got the Bold in the Cold pants. I didn't care for them when I saw them online but I loved them when I saw them. Then I got the Run Speedy Turtleneck it's sooooo soft and the CRB all of them have BB. I wanted to see the LS Devotion Tshirt but they never got it in. They had the Scoop Neck Tank in Red and Black but not Beaming Blue so I think I'll order that offline.

I'd like to think this is a production issue (ala SeaWheeze gear, yoga capsule released a week post-Wanderlust, etc.) and we still have a hope of seeing something *amazing* for Christmas, but...starting to think this is it. There are four billion Run: Bundle Ups in every size, I think lulu just got it wrong this year. Anxious to hear about that conference call, though I'm sure there will be plenty of positive spin on what has to be a disappointing quarter.

LuluAddict said...

@lulu Femom - They gave guidance that the 4th quarter will be below expectations. I'll have a post up when I can take a look at the call transcript.

I think they got it WAY wrong. Beside quality issues and cheapening products:
- they changed or eliminated beloved core items (Define, Scuba, Scoop Neck, Power Y, triangle gussets, Stride Jackets).

-They bet WAY to heavily on the appeal of color blocking within a piece when many of us already color block our lulu by wearing a different solid-colored tank, jacket, and pant.

-The color palettes have been too scatter shot or unappealing (e.g., limitless and clarity yellow),

-bad product mix (too many Bundle Ups and Back on Track tanks),

-lots of poor designs (curved edges on all the new winter run LS and POs), short tops, St. Moritz jacket (blah, ugly), Miracle Jacket (overpriced, bulky), Forme Jacket (generic, cheap), Flip No Flop tank).

-They didn't come out with any wrap jackets and wrap sweaters for the fall - big, big fail. People were waiting for those.

- They came out with a beautiful green - Alberta Lake - and made lots of pants in it but only one everyday-type jacket (rose herringbone define) and no CRB, not many core item tanks in the solid version.

I don't know how they plan out their product mix for the year. I would assume someone puts up designs on a wall so they can look them over but they left a lot of holes.

The only thing I ordered was the beaming blue CRB. Really hoping to see more fleece items/wraps, etc. but something tells me that isn't likely since it's already December.... I imagine spring stuff will be released in Jan/Feb??

I was going to get the beaming blue CRB but I just got the beaming blue Free 2 Be bra and it looks like they've cut corners on this staple now, too! I noticed right away that it was tighter than previously, but as the day went on it actually was too uncomfortable to wear and left marks on my shoulders and back. I compared it to my other F2Bs and the inside of the straps are lined with a different, scratchy kind of material instead of the old circle mesh :( The bottom band is also thinner overall and weaker-feeling, like it will stetch a small amount and then tear. These are my favourite casual/low impact-wear bras and I've tossed most of my other daily-wear bras over the past few years since the F2B came out, but I won't be buying any more :(
