I absolutely love the green crb and the coral speed shorts! The gingham prints are fun, but definitely not my style.

The Frond SS Swiftly is a MUST. Can't wait!

I really like the look of the bleached coral swiftly tank. I hope it comes in the power y as well.

I love the crops - I wonder what they're made of? Luxtreme, I hope.

What are the blues the woman on the mat is wearing (she is on her back with eyes closed) - looks like an angel color but her headband is pigment blue? I really hope it's a new blue and it's an energy bra! Yes, love the green SS!

Is it too much to ask for skirt that doesn't scream "Tennis!"? I have one pacesetter, but that's probably all I'll ever own of this style. I use Lulu skirts for running much more often than tennis. These colors are soSO fabulous! Please make a cute straight-hemmed skirt in these fun Spring colors. Fingers crossed for something similar to last year's Run:for it all (was that its name?) - I have it in the WAFS fossil/coal print with the dazzling trim- one of my all time favorite lulu pieces.
Also, after months of hating the color choices I am prepared to snatch up everything released in these upcoming non-neon brights! Buy first, and return what doesn't fit and flatter later. I might be back to setting my internal clock for upload night!

I am in SO much trouble when the bleached coral and front hit the US. SO MUCH TROUBLE.

Sorry, credit card.

I want the gros gingham skirt and the frond gingham crb! Can't wait!

Anonymous said...

OT - I received my inkwell ebb and flows today. They will be going back! I'm petite (5'2") and they are way too long. They are also sheer!

Anonymous said...

It's hard to tell by the picture but the frond green CRB looks almost menthol-ish. Like it's more of a creamy green than a bright green.

I'm finally feeling very excited and looking forward to the upcoming uploads

Karli B said...

I like all these hues way better than what came out for the winter. Loving the Inkwell (have the Daily Yoga)...and might pick up the pacesetter when its out.

@ anon 10:22 am - the crops are power luxtreme

Melissa said...

Those crops look awesome. WANT. (Not with the green--but solid coal or maybe inkwell??

Love the coral speed shorts and swiftly tank! Pace setter looks cute but not sure about that print. Also love the frond ss swiftly. Any word on when these items will hit US stores?

Is it just me, or does the Bleached Coral Pace Setter skirt have a back that has 2 different fabrics? The top tier of pleats seems to be in the Bleached Coral Gros Gingham, but the bottom tier seems like it is a solid Bleached Coral (no gingham)? Does anyone else see this in the pics, or is it just the way they were photographed?

Anonymous said...

Gingham is cute, but reminds me of a bathing suit. Love the colors for a change. The inkwell and flare are just awful. The Bordeaux drama and Alberta lake were so drab.

Anonymous said...

wow the green swiftly and crb are so pretty. and I am really liking the pattern on the pace setter, don't know if it's the ladies in the pictures that make everything looks amazing. bleached coral and grren speed shorts will be great for sailing in the Caribbean. I am also in much trouble.

OT. Has anyone has tried on the Pirouette Bra? Can you tell me if you would take the same size as in other Lulu bras and what you thought of it. There is only 1 review so far. I am looking for a bra with straight straps to wear under the daily tank on runs. The racer back tanks (No Limits or CRB/Swiftly with a Free to be bra) are my favourites but I need some straight strap options to get rid of racer back tan lines. Do you think it will lie flat under a tight fitting tank with the cinching? How does it look if it isn't cinched?

Anonymous said...

Eeek, I am just so NOT feeling the gingham. It looks like something you'd buy a toddler from Kohl's children's department. I also do not think those shorts are very flattering. I'm ALL about the "shorty-shorts" but these are just far *too* short for my tastes.

That said, I'd probably buy a headband in the gingham. I'm obsessed with the headbands. Way too obsessed.

Our Daily Lemon said...

Ahhh!! I love those running crops. Seems like a good length and the Run Inspires swooshes on the calves are a little too much sometimes.

Anonymous said...

My Chicago store got a cute white Devotion tee with a black and white striped elbow and high rise cross stitch WUs that I thought were recalled?

Jen said...

Hoping for a solid frond pacesetter. Don't like the two-way fabric, which it seems all patterned pacesetters and shorts are. Getting super stoked for these colors.

Anonymous said...

Love love the Frond SS Swiftly but it seems totally sheer in the back close up "Home Grown" picture. I can clearly see the two different fabrics of the power y bra she's wearing. Oh well, not something really new, just in line with the rest of the production these days.

Anonymous said...

The cross stitch is back. I dropped off a pair to have them hemmed. I purchased them before the holidays. The Lulu employee told me they jsut got them back in stock. The first batch of pants had been pulled due to quality concerns but Lulu deemed them acceptable so they are now back in stores.

Liking the Frond Gingham Cool Racerback and Mellow Yellow, it's all I'm interested in. Do not dig the gingham pattern at all. Agree with someone's past comment regarding the big print on the short not looking good. I also find it very junior. I'm good with the many Speed Shorts I have and I'll just not be buying those patterns.

Just got my black ebb and flows in the mail. im 5'4, 125, size 6- the length is fine but they are SHEER. no matter which way you cut it, how much you mess around with the fabric over your butt...you can easily see right through. so sad...

Anonymous said...

Ot but wore my inkwell e&f yesterday for hot yoga w full booty undies. They really were awesome. So sad though I took em out of the wash and the crotch seam is coming undone. About an inch 1/2 I cut off.
I'm gonna check out athletas version. And the mat I bought is stained and stinky!! That's going back tomorrow. Any suggestions? The color I bought was surge.

Just received my Pirouette bra. For reference I am 32 A and lean and wear a size 4. It didn't work for me. The cut was too high under the arms in the front. So with the combination of the cut and my slightly rolled shoulders it created armpit rolls that shouldn't be so pronounced. It also flattened the little chest that I do have and the straps were a shade short. I tried CRB over the bra when cinched and could definitely see the wrinkles underneath. Other than the flattening aspect and the enhanced rolls, it looked fine uncinched!! My usual size 4 was the right size.

In comparison to the Daily, which I also have, but rarely wear, the Daily flattens me too but the cut is lower on the sides and much more comfortable. I wear a Free To Be for low impact activities - again, all in size 4. My favorite bras are the Arise and Deep V (November 2011 version).

Love the speed shorts in the solid coral but only if they are 2-way swift! I sure hope so i'll buy them and if not just return them no big thang ;), and that frond green love- hope they'll make some cute new tanks w/ out the 80's baseball hemline- and not too short either! :)

Anonymous said...

To me the bleached coral looks like a lovely mix of flash and pink shell!

I am very much looking forward to it!

Also hoping that they come out with a new scarf soon! Without the dam stripes!

Also was able to snag a dhbh pullover! But it is a size 12! I'm usually a 10 in jackets! Hope this won't be too big! Otherwise someone is going to get lucky with my return!

I'm not going to hold my breath on any of these items, not even the CRB. They will take forever to show up in NA, if they show up at all. Australia got Black Swan Ebb & Flow ii's, and now that the E&F ii is in NA, did we get BSwan? No, we didn't (and I don't anticipate it's coming). Ugly Flare. Coal and Black which are nearly the same, and Inkwell, which isn't even. It's washed out. Glad I got the prior release of Indigo.

In the meantime, I'm sure LLL will carry on creating a lot more ugly stuff.

Anonymous said...

So I got my ebb and flows today in the mail- and they are perfect! Size 12 and no sheer really- just wear black underwear?! I LOVE them holy cow!!!!!!! So comfortable!!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 3:46 pm - that sucks. I don't think Ebb and Flows are the most robust pants but they shouldn't fall apart after one wearing. That sucks about your mat, too.

Anonymous said...

I got my ebb and flows today in all three dark colors and I didn't think any of them are sheer. I am so happy. I did the bend over test for my husband - he said they were fine. Hooray! These are the best crops.

Elisha Partridge said...

Hello from the land of oz! Just got my frond check crb and it looks really nice, but for the die hard soft Luon fans this might not be for you. The fabric is thick but textured and a little rough. Not what I was expecting but I love the colour! A true kermit the frog colour!

Anonymous said...

Tried it on in store the other day in size 2 (I'm 105 lbs and 32b) and didn't find it supportive or flattering...flattened my already flat chest and the straps even on the 2 seemed too long somehow and there was no uplift...and I am someone who runs in FTb and power y's.

Anonymous said...

Got my e&f ii today. Lovely fit on the waist, no ct but sheer bum. That was a 3 pair order!!! Dunno what to do. These were my fave crops for running in during summer. The coal is identical to black. I ordered 2 black and one coal and I can't tell them apart.

Anonymous said...

I'd love to see these colors on a Turbo Tank or Scoop Neck. Wishful thinking?

xtizzy said...

Excited for those beach runner crops, but in all black! Love the low back seam on the butt to visually minimize the area, haha. And as a shorty, I love the length.

DesertGirl said...

The bleached coral speeds will be mine!!!! I wish frond were solid but maybe the CRB wouldn't be that bad with the mini checks. I'm also loving the coral pace setter but I have several already. Like someone else said... Debit card watch out. I'm loving these colors!

Negative much?

Hello from oz! Just got my frond check crb and it is very cute. However for the lulu fans that like there Luon soft this may not be for you. It is thick but texture and slightly rough. The colour is nice though a true kermit the frog green.

Anonymous said...

The Ebb & Flow i are a very solidly made crop, superior, in fact. Mine have endured many Bikram classes and many washes (hang dry) and zero issues.

Ebb & Flow ii are thinner than the i's. I did buy a black pair of the ii's. Washed once, not worn yet. No complaints thus far.

I found it TTS - I am about 34b-c and I wear 8 in most lulu (but 6 in a number of shirts lately). I got the pirouette in an 8 - the 6 cut into the tops of the girls. It's NOT very supportive - I got bit for yoga/Pilates mainly because I wanted something in the SHS print. Also thought it would be good for hot yoga. Definitely would not run in it and don't think it would lay flat under something tight.

yogibabe said...

Loving the new spring colors! Will be stocking up on Frond, Bleached Coral, and Mellow Lemon and I LOVE gingham! The Frond Gingham CRB's fabric looks like it has the same texture as my Black and White Gingham Ujjayi tank from a while back. Hard to describe but not smooth like regular luon CRBs. Can someone confirm? Thanks!

Thanks lla!!
It was the "the mat" the fn $70 one. I feel like sucker is written on my forehead. I really want a great mat. And pants that the seams stay in tact. Happened on my toasty tech pants after one wear. I bring them back the Vegas store says they fixed them but don't. I'm branching out. Quality is really sucking. Yes I know it's been beaten as a dead horse but I just didn't want to believe it. So sad. I will continue to check in with your blog and hopefully you will have the inside scoop as to when quality will if ever return.

y sorry about your pants and mat. I love the mat, but always stick to dark colors. I really wanted the surge one. By the way mats are final sale. What I did with mine is deal with the stain.
The chemical smell goes away after a few uses. I did notice that in Bikram class the smell was so strong it was making me feel woozy the first time I used it.
Now it's fine and I like it a lot.

Wonder if they changed the Mat quality- I got the concord grape one about a year ago and love it. I spray it with lemon water and wipe it clean and it stays very nonstick- I don't use a towel for hot yoga. It actually gets more grippy with sweat. It does have some discoloration where my hands are but I don't care because it's functional.

Also- it did smell for a couple weeks when I first got it but just did the lemon thing and let it airdry outside for a while and it was fine.

M!! Hey girl you've never steered me wrong! Love your advice -got those skirts on wmtm (full stride) anyway the ones that you said "mellow out" the butt!! Which they do and look lovely;)
I went this a.m. after working a long night to my Vegas store at the fashion show. The Gec Kim gave me a new mat. Since I read the reviews too late, they had said just like anon 9:41 go with a darker color. I got the black and yes it has a smell but not like freshly layed out highway or tire factory! I mean it was terrible (surge was the color).
I also mentioned my seam coming undone on my e&fs. Kim sd no problem bring em in!!! I ws really happy to have her be so good. Didn't ask for a receipt. Of course I had dealt with her buying the products so she remembered me.
I tried to also get a price adjustment too on my rasp glow crb but that was a no go but the lady next to her sd we don't do price adjustments now but we will be soon!! So happy that they are seeming to realize its necessary business practice:)

Y, regardless of "final sale" take it back. The staining is a quality issue and not acceptable. I think if you read the reviews you'll find people that persisted got a credit or a darker mat at least. Some stores are just more agreeable on returns/credits anyway. Otherwise, LLL is on shaky ground and they know it.

I never bought the mat due to all the negative reviews.

Thanks, good to know price adjustments coming soon. Finally!
