LOL, Lululemon’s response to ‘the ratio between tanks to tights is off and there aren’t enough tanks to buy’ which was the discussion we where having on last weeks upload post, is to create this ‘starter pack‘ of three core tanks. I haven’t priced it out yet to see if there is a discount to the bulk pricing. That being said, I’m very happy to see the Essential Tank back in more colors. Another strange gimmick is that Lululemon has been embossing like crazy items that have not sold well just to push some sales (the Cut Above *Expression, Love Tanks, and random stuff that doesn’t sell well and this strange abomination of a copy of Calvin Klein circa 1993). Do people fall for these marketing gimmicks? What is going on with their merchandizing? Why bother having sold out APL sneakers on your ‘What’s New’ landing page when you are just enticing your shoppers to click elsewhere to complete a sale for APL Sneakers. You can just buy whatever color or style you like of the Athletic Propulsion Lab shoes on their own site [Here] while abandoning the Lululemon site altogether. What a strange way of leading sales off your own site.
The All Days Vest was released last winter but it was pulled off the site within a day of being uploaded for some reason. I remember a few of you being perplexed by that last year when they where pulled from store shelves and off the site. I was curious to try it on last year and I’d definitely like to try it on this year but I don’t think I want to order it. I have several vests I already love so I can’t justify it, but I do like the longer length. Ready To Rulu Pants are must haves. I have a black pair and a spare that is NWT, and I have black grape, so I probably shouldn’t order another pair this year but it’s sure tempting. I am tempted by the Space Dye Camo.
Where are all the winter running items? They are so delayed this year. I’ve gotten so many emails from you guys asking me when Lululemon typically releases the cold weather run gear and tech fleece items and we are definitely overdue.
Did you guys order anything yet? I’m waiting for these floral print tights to show up.
