The Lululemon Upload is up!

Nothing for me this week, although really loving all the Submarine items. If you followed along with my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts you probably understand why. I went pretty buck wild and purchased my wish list items, and then some. I definitely went over budget, but I’m rationalizing it by the fact that I’m not able to make it to Seawheeze this year (shopping or running) which is a huge expense anyways, and I’ve been saving up for this sale event for a while. If I wasn’t tapped out on my budget, I’d have scooped up the Submarine Align Pants, the Minimal Shorts in black, Cinch It Long Sleeve, and the Rain Haven Jacket (OMG the contrast lining in blue!). If I where to order one item it would be the rain jacket.  Did you guys get anything?

July 18th Lululemon Upload Post

The Lululemon Online Warehouse Sale 2017 Post

  1. This was a terrible upload IMO. I did order the power pose and free to be serene bra in ice milk but I agree with LS this stuff is forgettable.

    1. I tried on the Power Pose in Ice Milk this afternoon. I didn’t care for it. It’s much thinner than the Power Y – by design – but it just felt kind of cheap to me. Add to that that they don’t have a visible seam on the neckline, which means that the fabric there tends to pull and wrinkle. It reminded me of the way J Crew have great stylists and you think you’re absolutely going to buy that item you saw online …. until you get to the store and see the real thing in person and you can’t get over how cheap and wrinkled it is. Oh, well. At least the color is pretty.

      1. Oh man that sounds disappointing. Thanks for the feedback. I have to admit I felt the original Power Ys were too thick (at least the few I have – it was never a favorite style for me). I’m just craving another style apart from the CRB which I wear pretty much everyday. And the newer tanks they come out with tend to just be in dark/basic colors. Maybe I should’ve just gotten the ice milk crb ii but I recently got the seascape (which I love) and really they keep coming out with too similar colors!

        1. I recently bought the cherry blossom Power Pose and I really like it. I agree that it’s thinner than a Power Y and I did have to mess around with the cup position so the outline didn’t show. But once I got the cups worked out, I was happy with it! I didn’t have puckering at the top yet, so maybe you’ll be okay too?

        2. I prefer the power pose over the power y because the fabric is thinner and the straps didn’t pull on my traps as much as the power y. I actually wore my cherry blossom power pose tank today and it was great.

          1. Thanks for the feedback Lulubell and Mrs. O. Mine should arrive tomorrow so I guess I’ll figure out which side of the fence I’m on then!

      2. I bought Power pose in hail yesterday and liked everything( especially lighter fabric) except the length. I haven’t compared it to my Power Y tanks , but seemed awfully long to me. I don’t care for long tanks , always had to hem CRB’s and now much prefer CRB II

  2. I’m glad for the slower pace this upload is taking. I spent too much on the Taryn Toomey stuff and the Warehouse sale ad I need to take a break.

      1. SW= Seawheeze. Seawheeze is the half marathon Lulu puts on every year. This year they are giving runners access to specially designed items ahead of time and they are limited to 2 items per runner. Runner’s only.

        Then at the SW store, they have specialty merchandise designed just for the race and the theme of the race. It’s no available in stores save if a store lets someone return an item.

        1. thanks! that’s actually great. I haven’t gone to SW, but it has always seemed sketchy to me that runners don’t get first dibs.

      1. Only for those who are running, a limited amount of Seawheeze items will be available for purchase online. Sw = Seawheeze. I just say capsule because it is only a selection of items that will be offered.

  3. I am not happy with this upload. They are just pushing fast fashion pieces and why are these winter jackets coming out when the weather is so hot?

    1. Now that I’m seeing the uploads containing fall/winter items, it kind of makes sense what an ed told me when I called GEC. He said it’s winter now. I exclaimed, “winter where? It’s so hot here!” Just seems odd to me. I can’t even think about warmer jackets and rain coats right now. It’s too hot (and unusually humid).

  4. Im happy that i dont need anything…i too bought quite a bit during warehouse sale and 5 of the taryn items. I still have fast and frees and other pants from june that i have yet to wear..not to mention the entwined. I am hoping for some neat stuff on thursday.

  5. I’m mildly interested in the minimal shorts. They look like a nice basic. No info on the material though, so I will wait to see if they make it to my store. If not, I’m still happy with my old play all day shorts.

  6. I actually like the green tech mesh, but I wish they came in the High Times 7/8 length. Does anyone know if the 31″ inseam tech mesh WUPs are hemmable? I chatted with customer service and they said I’d have to take it to the store to find out. *shrug*

    1. Yes, i just got 8″ hemmed @ my local LLL store, so now they’re 23″ inseam…just above the ankle on my short frame (5’2″).

    2. I think it depends on how much you need to hem. For me, it doesn’t work because the top mesh starts lower on my leg and the amount I have to hem on the bottom is on the mesh. It looked funny to me. I wish they made it in the high times 7/8 length as well, like they used to.

  7. I agree most of this is unforgettable. I am going to try on the new rain jacket but it would have been nice to see this in a colour other than navy or black. It would also be nice to see some of the pretty lighter colours like cherry blossom, misty mauve and hydrangea blue in the Swiftlies as I am not into buying more dark ones right now.

    1. I’m not sure the name of it but I tried on a tank and ss that cinched on the side seam a couple of weeks ago. I could have sworn it was the tank/tee version of the conch it long sleeve) I can’t seem to find it on the website. It was TTS for me (similar sizing to the love tee or another round tee).

    2. I tried on the Cinch it LS. I usually waffle back and forth between a 6 and an 8. I mistakenly took a 4 into the dressing room, but I felt that it was fitted enough that the 8 worked the best. I usually only buy a 6 when they run large, so I would say it’s tts in my experience…

  8. I’m planning to order Minimal shorts and Minimal tank or short sleeve. Thinking about probably gray tank and shorts and black short sleeve to wear with my On the fly shorts. I wonder if it’s French terry or Spacer fabric. I think they will make an outfit to go for a dinner paired with wedges

    1. I ordered the Aligns, but I will definitely trade them out if they end up coming out in Luxtreme WUP or Nulux Fast & Free tights

  9. The one thing I’m excited about is the twist and train line was on mark down at the store. I’m hoping they’ll go on WMTM this week online and I can get them for a better price.

  10. I feel irrationally annoyed that they waited a whole month after the release of the Energy Bra to come out with the FTB Serene in Ice Milk. I love the color so snapped up the Energy Bra, even though it’s not my favorite style. I kept the tags on it just in case they came out with a FTB Serene, which is my favorite. Of course it’s now too late to return the Energy Bra so I’m not spending another $50+ on a bra in the exact same color I already have. Really unsure why they chose that strategy since all its done is annoy me.

    I’ve also been waiting for the Power Pose tank to come out in Nile Blue in the US. I spotted that a while ago on the UK site and keep hoping it’ll be uploaded here.

    1. You might still be able to exchange it. It depends on your store, but I’ve had success in exchanging after the return period. They don’t seem to mind as much if you are just trading items. If you aren’t far from a store, it’s worth a try imo.

    2. Depending on your store…they may echange or refund the bra…my store is awesome…they dont tend to worry about return period…except for 1 or 2 eds ….so i avoid returning when they are at cash if i think they may give me a hard time.

    3. Thanks for the heads up re FTB Serene bra in ice milk. I’m still within the 30 day periord so I will probably switch mine out. My store is great too re returns. Probably because I come by so often and buy most times. LOL. Not a good thing . . . spending too much money.

  11. If you are into a Dance Studio-like pant, MEC has MPG’s Nemea Pant (unlined) on markdown in store for $50 for the black or grey (Toronto has them for sure as I write this; only the lined version is available online). MEC is also still making a very nice CRB-like tank called the Sequence Tank (plus SS and LS version) in standard colours like black, grey, even a fossil type stripe. Plus some nice bright colours like purple and blue. They are soft and lovely. FYI MEC is also having 30% off or more on many items. Online and in store, including a lot of brands like Nike, Adidas, Prana etc.

      1. ooooohhhh I love that Nike bra (especially the black/white combo)!! thanks for bringing it up to our attention!

  12. The new rain jacket is truly nice. I know on the website there are stupid photos w the jacket not zipped up properly. I tried it on today and bought it in Black. My shop only had the black one. It fits great and TTS. It’s super water proof I think. All the zippers are sealed. I’m very happy with it and look forward to fall rain.

    1. So great to hear! I just ordered the black one, my local stores didn’t seem to get either colour for some reason! Is the lining of the black version a grey? Is it a fairly dotted/flattering jacket? The website pics of this item were SO poor!!

  13. Stoped by my store today and bought Alouette Nulux tights on md at $94! Score! I was considering them even at full price, really liking the print.

  14. Hi, i bought a second hand high times SE tights online, it’s got extra high waist. When i received the item, i noticed the LLL logo on the back is pure black and glossy. The little size dot in the pocket only has a 4 on it, without the other letters etc on it… Is this a fake? :/ you guys know LLL well, was there ever a SE with black glossy logo on the waist band? I don’t know what to do with this :/ Thank you!

    1. It’s hard to say for sure without photos but for awhile Lulu used size dots with just the size number on it. In fact, some authentic Lulus don’t have a size dot. I bought a pair of crops from the store that didn’t have one, and the educators said that sometimes they make it out of the factory without it. Also, even though not common, sometimes they do come off in the wash. The Lulu logo sounds legit too if it’s slightly raised and stiff. Sometimes they use that material in the same color as the garment. Since they’re SE, that would make sense. My advice is to stick with sellers who are in North America and have positive feedback on previous Lulu sales. I have also purchased a few items from Australia without issue. I personally save both hang and rip tags for all of my Lulu purchases. I staple them together in case I ever decide to sell because the rip tags from knockoffs are usually pretty bad. Hope I helped some!

      1. Awesome. Thank you so much for your answer. That made me feel a bit better. The logo is very glossy and like you said, raised and stiff. Yeah i think i’ll stick with reputable sellers from now on so i don’t have to worry 🙂

      2. There are a few very reputable lululemon resellers on ebay. My sisters and I found many great items for nice prices. We never buy used items but found lower price everything else Lululemom.

      3. Glossy logo is legit. I have a Rest Less Long sleeve in black from Winter 2016/2017 with a glossy black logo. I also have a CRB that is blush coloured (not the accurate colour name, I know) with a glossy logo and that item is a year to two years old. It is colour on colour. I’m not sure about SE/LLM blog, but I know LLA has it somewhere in her timeline, when glossy logos were noticed. Not sure when/why LLL decides to use them. I think they were experimenting with a more discreet logo overall re: colour on colour.
