Upload!


Rejuvenate Hoodie



Some cute new things uploaded tonight. I ordered the Layer Me LS and Rise and Shine Pullover inthe Bleached Coral. I'm pretty sure I won't keep both but since I can't get to a store for awhile Iwanted to try them on. I also ordered the Frond Bangbuster. I might have ordered the Frond LS Swiftly but it wasn't uploaded and the short length of the "shorcut" frond Swiftly tank totally turned me off. I thought the Rejuvenate Hoodie is not bad but the colors it comes in are rather dull. Some of the new bottoms were interesting, the Rise and Shine Pant and Invert Crop.

What did you order tonight?

PS - if you look at the Inkwell Invert crop photo it looks like there is a new green color swiftly, more jewel-toned. I read a rumor there is another green coming and may be called Sour Apple.

I bought the faded zap bag, I hope the quality doesn't disapoint me in real life.

One thing i just HAVE to point out: in the photo for the inkwell/mellow lemon invert crop, the model has what looks like an emerald green swiftly LS tied around her waist!!! IT's definitely NOT frond, it looks like the color i've been praying for!! So excited!!

I agree that there are some cute new things (finally!). I am really interested in the Inkwell Rejuvenate Hoodie but not crazy about the strings and need to find out if it is TTS. Please let me know how it fits and if it is a flattering cut (hard to tell from the model). I wonder if it will sell fast???

LuluAddict said...

I think a lot of people have been waiting for a light weight French terry hoodie so I bet it will sell pretty well unless there is a flaw or fit problem. I would like it in brighter colors.

Would love some fit reviews on the Invert Crop. It was the only thing I was interested in in this upload. TIA!

That emerald green colour looks amazing, can't wait for it.

i also noticed on the bleached coral short swiftly tank, the crops have little polka-dots on the blue .. it's cute, hopefully that print will be on something else, because i'm not a fan of the piping

Got the inkwell Pace Setter skirt. I don't like the new Pace skirt with that v-shaped waistband. Not good if you have a bit of a tummy, it doesn't suck anything in. I also did not love the color combos the Pace skirt offered. I hate it when the shorts underneath are a contrasting color to the fabric of the skirt. When you run, it doesn't look very discreet.

The cut and length of the Rejuvenate hoodie looked good, but I wish they'd made that in a Luon jacket instead. I really need a navy jacket and there don't seem to be that many interesting choices. If I were in the market for a run shirt, I would have gotten the Rise & Shine. I like the simple styling.

Does this upload look like Lulu is starting to turn around a bit? Some of the good, clean styling (Invert Crop) is back, I just wish the fabrics would revert to being thick and worthy quality again.

I was going to purchase the Swiftly Arm Warmers until I took a closer look at them. It seems like they've done away with a lot of the detailing, which is what I liked from the past versions, including the scalloped edges at where the hands are suppose to be and detailing at more sweat-prone areas.

Anyone seeing this or is it just me?

LuluAddict said...

@anon10:34 - definitely like the clean lines and feminine colors of the new LS and PO.. I like a lot of what I've seen in this upload. Usually the fall line has the real killer designs, colors, and prints but it looks like lulu put the A-team on the spring line instead this year.

Unknown said...

love that new green color! wonder how long we'll have to wait for it!? that's my fave color green... i like the look of the invert crops and will be interested in the fit also. i'd consider them for a casual pant - they are the skimmer style that is in right now for spring/summer.

Anonymous said...

i couldn't resist the Layer Me LS, ordered a Bleached Coral and a White/Dune. Also ordered the Rise and Shine PO in Frond along with a Frond Bangbuster.

After looking at all the photos for the various colors of the Invert Crop, I'm wondering what new items are in our future... the rumored "Sour Apple" green pictured with the Inkwell, the white jacket pictured with the Black. If anyone has info/rumors on the white jacket, I'm interested.

Tonight's upload may have me setting my alarm for uploads once again.

Thanks LLA, your blog is fabulous.

Yay! Been waiting for the pop orange ta ta tamer!! Kinda liking the yellow run crops too

Jen said...

Got the mellow lemon first base tank to go with my frond speeds. Did anyone notice that they stealth uploaded two laceoflage toasty tech tights? How long have those been there?

Anonymous said...

Are we online-only-shoppers ever going to see the frond LS and SS Swiftly? I have started to wonder.

PLEASE do a review of the new invert crop? dying to know how it is!

Diamond dot inkwell WU pant.....I bought the version that was out last November in black..loved them but wore them once and white threads pulled all over the pants. Returned them...we'll see if these new ones last more than one wearing

Anonymous said...

In the invert crop pics.....the one with the inkwell/mellow lemon, she is wearing a green sweater around her hips! Don't know what it is....but it appears very promising!!! :) Looks like the old Lulu from 4 years ago. Ive seen this green a few years ago and it's stunning! Wonder what shirt she has slung around her hips! LOVE!!! Also, LOVE the new model....she's stunning!! :)

nothing for me, this upload. There was a time, when I had to have everything from each upload and now, Ive waited so LONG for Lulu to bring out great designs, that Im bored! Yes, Im bored with the Lulu brand. :( Ive been look at other high end brands, for my hoodies and wraps. Lululemon just took way too long, to please it's most loyal customers. A good, loyal customer will only wait so long and then we move on to something better.

lulufan said...

bought both the lemon & frond bang busters... am trying to resist the frond pullover. If they hadn't teased another green then I would have totally pulled the trigger.

Honestly, my wallet can't wait for them to go back to their uninspired purple and pink offerings b/c all this green has been giving it an exercise!!!

Anonymous said...

Rise & Shine Pant, 7/8 length, no thanks not interested in floods. Same goes for the Invert Crop and ick to the high waistband.

In fact none of it appeals to me except the First Base Tank new colors. Except I ordered one of those and took it back. Absolutely loved the rulu but realized the tank is never going to get chosen over a CRB.

Anonymous said...

On the Astro waistband on the Run Pace Short and the Run Pace Skirt. Some people prefer the waistband (up) as it doesn't cause a muffin top.

luluFemom said...

Loving the new (as-yet-unnamed) green - it reminds me of Savage, which I tragically missed out on because I was ginormously pregnant with baby number three and didn't have the foresight to stock up in my non-preggo size - what was I thinking? ;) Here's hoping I can correct that lapse in judgement when this one gets released...

Janet said...

I ordered the bleached coral scuba... I love that color, and I've basically been living in my scubas this winter. Also ordered the diamond dot inkwell WUs. I already have the silverescent inkwell WUs so not sure if these will be enough different to keep or not. I usually like the textured WUs. And my first bangbuster in reversible pop orange/bleached coral. Interested to see if I can pull it off (like how it looks on others, but skeptical on whether I can rock it).

Anonymous said...

i really love the look of the layer me ls, but worry about fabric quality as in the model photo, her bra is clearly visible back and front. i hope the quality matches what i think is a nice top.

im still po's about the crappy fabrics and am still just lurking more than buying:)

something about that short little swiftly peeved me off as well. just like looking at the new power y photos. so obviously cheapened by losing fabric! i don't recall a ton of reviews asking for more cropped items!

luluaddict, i completely understand why you have the comment moderation on...but am i the only one that has to try multiple times to prove i am not a robot? why are the damn letters/numbers so hard to read?? lol:)

HINT HINT! Looks like a new LONG JACKET/hoodie in the bleached coral wunder unders!

macfrannie said...

Did anyone else notice the shorts in the black Rise and Shine Pullover? Those look like faded zap speed shorts to me. I'd definitely consider getting those, I'm ready for some bright colors.

I got the LS Layer Me PO in yellow, I'm not much of a yellow gal but I like this pale yellow.

macfrannie said...

Doh, it is the black LS Layer Me not the rise and shine. sorry bout that.

Anonymous said...

I'm not digging that new running pullover. The Rise and Shine. Particularly in the bleached coral the double black ribbon around the collar emphasizes even more the ugliness of it. To me it screams Chinese collar. And the black strip down the arms in the green one totally ruined it (in addition to the Chinese collar!)
As for the new color of the Vino Vinyasa bag, faded zap, ugh... Why to pick faded zap to make an otherwise lovely bag? I have a few pieces in FZ from 2010 and although I'm fine working out in a FZ tank, a bag the size of the VIno Vinyasa in this bright fluorescent lime is ugly IMO.

Anonymous said...

Bought the inkwell pacesetter without even looking at anything else. I am totally addicted to the pacesetter and can't stop buying them! I just wished I started Lulu last year when they had more cute prints/colors :(
I was excited about the Pace skirt but I agree that eventho the waistband design is cute, I am not sure if it will be functional for someone who has a tummy. The length also seems awfully short (unless the model is really tall). It looks cute, but at $68? I'd rather spend the money on the next cute pacesetter. Maybe I will try it at my store and see if it will change my mind.
I also like the Rejuvenate Hoodie - it looks really soft. I am still on the fence about buying this one since I already have the inkwell Uba softshell from last month and I don't want it in black. The fit says loose but Lulu has been all over the place lately. (I am a 10 in WTF, 8 in Uba reflective & Scuba stretch and 6 in Uba softshell.) I can always return to my local store but it's still a hassel not knowing what size will fit.
I also got a Vinyasa scarf from WMTM and it should be arriving today! My FedEx guy knows me already since he has been delivering something from Lulu every single week!!! I am in trouble ;)

Anonymous said...

Any one know what bottoms are being shown with the Swiftly SL Shortcut - the ones with the super pretty bleached coral/pop orange striped waistband?

Looks like there's another stripe going down the side (not sure how I feel about that one!) But I <3 the waistband combo!

Anonymous said...

Looking at the new green color Swiftly on the invert crop, I think it might be a two tone. Very hard to tell due to the lighting difference from front to back, but in my opinion it appears two-tones. I hope not, I have never liked the two-tone swiftly's.

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 5:42 am - you don't think that is a Daily Yoga jacket?

Anonymous said...

there is also a blue hoodie in the banner pic in the scuba central section. looks like same blue color on tanks pictured on some of the scuba pics?

Anonymous said...

Curious about the sheerness of the inkwell diamond dot WU? Has anyone tried these on or anything like them? They are really cute.

Anonymous said...

Am I the only one who doesn't seem to see the difference between that Swiftly in the Invert crops photo and the Frond Swiftly? And if they're really that close, what's the point? Super disappointed the Frond Swiftly LS wasn't uploaded, btw. I bet their marketing people stalk these blogs to find out what we're all coveting, then hold them back hoping that our lust for buying will cause us to buy something else in the meantime. It certainly seems that way. Nothing for me this week. I'll just keep waiting on the Frond (or whatever color that other one is). And if they don't upload them, oh well. Something else will come along...I'm hoping for a green Vinyasa and a green satin pirouette headband. We shall see.

Anonymous said...

I'm liking the Diamond inkwell WU pants. Those are timeless and can be worn with so many things. Will either buy them online or wait to see if them in store.

susan said...

That white jacket looks like a Forme jacket. I love looking at the Australia uploads too :)

Anonymous said...

Is the black top the model is wearing with the faded zap vino to vinyasa bag the Warm Up Crew, or a new pullover sweater??

Anonymous said...

@anon 5:42 am
I agree with LLA, I think that jacket looks like a Daily Yoga.

@anon6:36 am
You are right, that new Pace skirt is 2 whole inches shorter than the regular length Pace Setter. I am only 5 feet tall, but I wear the Pace Setter in the tall lengths because my torso is long (also why I can't wear 1 piece swimsuits), so there is no way I will buy this new Pace one. Also, did they run (look, I made a pun!) out of names because it would be easy to confuse the two!??

I have lots of name suggestions if they are looking: Metre, Mile, PR, Tempo (have they done that one yet?), Loop, On Your Mark, Get Set and Go, etc.

Anonymous said...

Can anyone tell me what green top she's wearing in both the new visor and hat pictures? Faded zap? Whatever it is I neeeed a tank in that colour! Ordered the rejuvenate hoodie in a couple sizes, hopefully one fits well. I've been waiting so long for a basic, hoodie made of hoodie material that's LONG enough! Seen so many cropped items lately, that style only works for a select group. I'd rather get my items hemmed then not be able to purchase new styles because they are too short.

Anonymous said...

Anon 7:07- thinking the same thing- dont see a big difference in the green- still looks to Kermit the frog for me :). Obsessed with inkwell! Bought the diamond dot wu and the rejuvenate hoodie- def don't need either so will have to make some tough decisions!!

Anonymous said...

I ordered the bleached coral arm warmers. I've brought a lot of bleached coral items so I am waiting for the new colors now. I don't like Frond but the new green looks really nice.

OT - Can anyone recommend what to wear running if you want to stay dry when it is warm to hot but raining. I run from the office in my lunch break so I don't want to arrive back soaking wet and I don't like wearing anything that isn't breathable. I've already got a great North Face running cap that keeps my hair dry but need something to keep my tank and shorts dry that doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything extra. Not sure if something like that exists.

Anonymous said...

Two possible teasers that nobody has mentioned yet: On the Australian site, and the banner over tops, it looks like a new colour of swiftly. It looks like Tang Light, but I suppose it could just be Burnt Yellow; and on the North American sites, on the picture for the Frond inverse crops, she looks like she's wearing some sort of cropped wrap. It looks like two layers of fabric, one wrapped over the other.

Anonymous said...

so say I want the new swiftly tank....but OK, now it's super short. say I wear a size 6 in Lulu tops. the last time I had a swiftly tank on, was last year and it was Waaay too tight. Im a 34 DD. would it be a BAD IDEA to size up, not to an 8, but a 10.....to get the length and the boobage?! :) Opinions?

Liz8 said...

I'm very excited about the Invert crops- but I want to try them on first. I think they have potential to be perfect for crossfit.

I'm also interested in hearing reviews of the yellow pace crops. I really like the idea of them, but I'm assuming they are sheer. It looks like you might be able to see a panty line in the detail pic showing the gel pocket. I love the color though.

Anonymous said...

Not digging those pace shorts. There is too much fabric. They look dumpy from the front and back. Reminds me of Nike Tempo shorts. Those shorts balloon up and look so unflattering. The pace shorts remind me of that.

Marlies said...

Nothing for me this week. I've been going overboard lately, and I need to exercise some self control! :-)

Regarding Frond... Yes, it's froggy, but oh so pretty. In general I'm a sucker for anything pink, but I bought the Frond Swiftly LS and wore it yesterday to lots of compliments. :-)

lexa said...

There are some cute things that caught my eye, but I was waiting for a frond Swiftly LS.

Anyone is digging the new bleached coral WU?

Also looks like they have an inkwell swiftly on the Aussie side but unless it is just not photographing well it looks just like grey to me. They have a two-toned Free to be bra in dune/bleached coral that is adorable! really hope we see an energy bra in inkwell...

Where are the frond gros gingham speed shorts?! Am I the only one waiting for these?

Anonymous said...

I finally got my order from last week today. Totally disappointed with the frond inspire crops. I ordered two sizes bc I thought my normal 8 might be too snug, but I found the opposite to be true. The waste fit well on the 8, the the rest of the crop felt almost baggy. Had anyone else noticed this??

Anonymous said...

I came home with the bleached coral R & S pullover, I really like the black detail, especially down the arms. Nothing else. I tried on the frond G and C, see through, and I didn't even have to try the new yellow crop because I could read the tag through the fabric. I'm assuming the BC ones are the same. Tried on the inkwell gingham crop (or shorts pants if you like!) and I thought they were OK. Normally I would think that length would be horrible, but they were't so bad, and I think the stripe down the front helped to elongate the look. I didn't get them because they didn't help make me look fabulous! These days, for $82-98 bucks I better look fab!

None of the new jackets are tempting, already got the Frond swiftly and nothing else looked at all interesting. I know we've all been begging for greens and yellows, myself included, but I'm kinda missing a good purple!

Anonymous said...

ok - so I was analyzing the pic of the new green swiftly and it almost looks like there is a pattern on the sleeve? might be imagining it but could be a special edition?

Jenn said...

I bought the invert crops to try. They look cute and I dig the 'flood' look.

I just got a product notification for my store that the Rejuvenate Hoodie also comes in Bleached Coral and Mellow Lemon.

@Anon 520am

Why do you assume Lululemon is trying to be cheap and cut corners by offering shorter tops?

Ever think that maybe not everyone is a giant or has big boobs? I'm 5'3 & flat chested so I have to get every single swiftly or crb hemmed by several, several inches. So I'm delighted that things are finally being offered in shorter lengths.

Anonymous said...

Yes I noticed the black top the model is wearing in the faded zap vinyasa to wino bag picture! She has it layered over the pop orange forme jacket. It's cut high up the sides and I don't recognize it. Can anyone tell what it is?

I just wanted to say thank you for the blog. LLA you are awesome, and I appreciate all the work you put into this.

Went to my local store today to purchase the layer me longsleeve and sadly didn't come home with one. It was definitely soft and the mellow yellow was very pretty but the top felt pretty thin. Also all the tops in my size had seams that were already unraveling. For $88 I don't want to fall apart before I even leave the store.

Anonymous said...

saw the diamond dot wu at my store and it was a pass. the fabric felt thin and just didn't hug me the way my other wus do.

Our Daily Lemon said...

Any chance they're working on a new bra for D sized chests? TaTaTamer doesn't cut it for me.
Regretting my Frond Bangbuster now that I've seen the amazing new yellow. The green and white seem very yuppy. Poo for final sales on hand bands.

I got an email this afternoon from my local store that had a couple of items listed that I haven't seen on the website, although it is possible I overlooked them.

One was the "Digni Tee LS" in the following colors:
1.dune/ocean stripe
2.mellow lemon/ocean stripe
3.bleached coral/ocean stripe
The body is striped and the sleeves appear to be solids.

Another was the Warm Up Crew (I know it has received a lot of hate) in ocean strip bleached coral/pop orange. In my opionin, the striped version seems more appealing than the solids in the previous upload.

@ anon 11:34am

I found the exact same thing with my frond inspires order I received today. I ordered a size 8, same as the pair in SHS print I got last week. The frond fit was definitely different, the waist fit in the frond is better than SHS, but doesn't seem to be any compression in the rest of it. Considering going to the store in hopes of trying the frond in a 6. Otherwise, I do love them, they don't seem like they would be sheer if I size down.

Anonymous said...

Just came back from my local store. Tried on the Pace skirt and it was awful! Way too short and wide and color is just ugly. My store only had the dune/white (which the bleached coral under pants show thru) and the bleached coral with the odd stripe smacked right in the middle. The waist band is terrible for people who has a tummy! major muffin top!!! Also tried on the swiftly tank and am in love with the length! I don't find it short at all (I am 5"4") and it hits right at my hips. I like this length much more than the longer CRB. My store didn't have the Rejuvenate hoodie so I ordered that one online. My WTF jacket came today - ordered a size 10 because that's what I have for the pullover and it was way big! So sad cuz I had tried both 8 and 10 before and forgot which size fit better. I got the polar cream at marked down so no returns :(

Hello everyone, just wondering if anyone knows if LLL ever puts out a pair of short tights (not boogie length) that goes down to just above the knee? I had a pair pre preggo that I ran halfs in but now I need a smaller (YAY ME) size and can't find a decent pair. Will this be a length that comes out closer to summer?

Anonymous said...

Not to mention it's on trend. Like it or not... At first I was hating the short styles but then tried some on and opened my mind to trends and now I like some of them. But....,there are people that stick with what works for them. You see it all the time 40 year old woman with a dated look.

What does everyone think the likelihood of a great colored pair of Studio Crops coming out later this spring/summer are? I got the Bleached Coral, and I love the color, but I'm returning them since they are so see-thru. I'm still on the fence about them, but they're getting packed tonight for return tomorrow... I can't justify spending so much on them if I'm not going to wear them because they're sheer, but I LOVE the color. Why can't the make the material just a smidge thicker for modesty?? I love the pairs I've got now, and I'd love to have them in a bright fun color, but that one doesn't seem to work. It'd be great if they made them in a bright shade purple.

Just got a red define from online - my first one ever- The same day as my forme mint moment (wmtm), also first ever. The forme would be alright if I hadn't ever known the define. But the define, used, is better quality, better fitting, softer, and far superior over all. This makes me very sad...

Anon 11:34... I had to size down in the Frond Inspires too. My usual size 8 was too baggy in the waist and loose in the calves. I did not have any sheerness issues despite sizing down to the 6. I'm thrilled that LLL revised the waistband!
