Upload!!!


Landing page has updated for US and Canada but just a few items have been posted. I'm waiting to see if more gets added because if not, this is one seriously ridiculous upload. Way to set up expectation with your customers and then add one or two items that could have just been uploaded on Sunday.

Boo for a crappy upload! I was hoping to see the Radiant Jacket in black herringbone or those Black Grape Runderful Pants. Oh well.

Downright Cozy Pullover (CAD)

Vinyasa (CAD)

Mind & Body Kit (CAN)

Fluffed Up Vest (CAN)

About That Base LS (CAN)

About That Base Tight (CAN)

  1. Was this an automatic post? I don't see new on Canada or US. Unless I'm just not noticing it.

    2. probably not noticing. its only a few items. even the wmtm they only re added the zone in tight and crop.
      seriously this is ridiculous. Least i was expecting the cinch ls tee in the pink color.

  2. There's new stuff available (US), but it's scattered in among the other items. For example, I see the Enhearten Tank, which is new.

    1. The Enhearten tank was new on Tuesday. It looks like they put up same upload but just moved the first color around.

  3. Oh ya, I guess the fluffed up vest is new too (I think).

    ReplyDelete
  4. I think maybe the website is having issues today, it shows me pictures of old items (black Yogini tee) as new. I think maybe the full upload isn't done yet (hopefully).

  5. i've come to the conclusion that the US is never getting runderful pants and i'm getting super annoyed by it. That is the ONE item I've actually been interested in and wanted to purchase for weeks, and nothing...sigh.

    1. I totally hear you. Have been waiting for the runderful pants and ... nothing. Irritating.

    2. Ditto. Those pants would be perfect both for my winter running and general to-and-from on campus.

      Delete
    3. Exactly. That is the ONLY thing I've been wanting.

    4. They would make so much money off the runderful pants alone in the US if they would just upload them. I mean I REALLY want them for my holiday travels where I will be COLD and don't need all this nonsense mesh in December, but I leave for my holiday travels in 2 weeks, and I sincerely doubt I will get them before i leave at this point, even if they upload them on Tuesday. They should at least upload Canada and US items around the same time, instead of giving something to one or the other weeks before the other side even sees it.

    5. Me too!! I've been waiting for them for weeks!! It's the only thing left on my Xmas list!

  7. while we wait to see if the upload will have any items added... Lulumum, did you receive your fluffin Awesome jacket in the grain color yet? what did you think of it ? did it turn out to be more beige or pink? really curious about it. :)

    1. I got it and love it. It's a pale mauvy pink very close to Mink Berry/Bark Berry. I really love it. The only issue is that you can see dark feathers showing through and some jackets have looked worse than others. Mine is fine with nothing glaring but if that bothers you you won't like this jacket. I am in love with the color and the rose gold combo though so I don't really care about feathers showing.

      Delete
    2. My jacket will be here tomorrow! How do the Runderful pants fit? Did I miss your review... I need to know in case the US ever gets them.

      Delete
    3. Sorry, I've been so busy over the past two weeks. I returned the black runderful pants in hopes that we see the black grape. I liked them but not enough to keep them in black and get the grape so I opted to hope we see them. They are slim fitting and straight leg and a little fussy to put on but once on very comfortable.

      Delete
    4. I ordered the Fluffin Awesome Vest in the grain color as well. While the color and detailing (rose gold zipper) was pretty, I was actually pretty disappointed with the quality. It felt thin and flimsy even for the $99 I paid (definitely not worth the full price of $168 or whatever it was). It seemed a little cheap looking for LLL but I got it on WMTM so my return options are obviously limited. By comparison, I have a Gap puff vest I got 2 years ago on sale for $45 that looks and feels MUCH more substantial. Maybe the Fuffin Awesome jacket was better quality? What really grinds my gears is the prices LLL charges for this crap- prices comparable to North Face or Patagonia which are functionally much more superior! While LLL items may be prettier, their insane prices cannot justify the quality of some of these pieces.

      Delete
    5. Sad to hear the quality of the vest was bad! I posted above that my jacket will be here tomorrow and if I don't like something about it (feels cheap or feathers showing though), back it goes even if their website says final sale. I've returned items from WMTM before and no one ever says anything... I'm no wimp about making returns though. ;)

      Delete
    6. I was disappointed with my "denim" Fluffin awesome vest, I was about to cry when I saw the quality :( but the next day I received the jacket in gator green and it was much much better, I'm happy with my jacket. Too bad for the vest, $99 wasted

      Delete
  8. They shouldn't even be advertising 2x/week uploads if this is all we get!! The vest isn't even new... it's recycled from last year!! Hating this company more and more as time goes by and I've been spending less and less every week.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Amen! It's infuriating and is seriously making me reconsider them altogether when you add in the fact that their quality has been on a downward spiral for far too long now.

      Delete
    2. I'm finding that I pass on more and more items now due to the quality and prices they are charging.

      Delete
  9. Hoping this isn't it. If it is, huge fail, especially in the last weeks leading up up the holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  10. got the giant herringbone high times!!! I have been waiting for these for about a month now!

    ReplyDelete
  11. What is going on with LLL?! This is ridiculous. They are listing old stock, like the Puffy Blanket Jacket and Feelin Frosty Softshell, not to mention all this mesh that no one who lives in a cold climate wants and or needs if we are going outdoors! Meanwhile, the UK is getting items that would sell out in no time if made available to CAN/US. This is the holiday season where people are buying gifts and yet they are disappointing to loyal customers. I can't understand their rationale. As far as I'm concerned, they don't want my money so I guess I have to shop for LLL on eb*y or find other brands that actually listen to their customers.

  12. apparently lululemon didn't want anyone's money today........

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You would think they would want money and upload at least 10 new items

      Delete
    2. Exactly!! You'd think they would upload the "hot" sought after items now, while people can still wait for items to ship and haven't bought all their gifts.

      Instead they upload them right before christmas, when people have already started traveling for the holidays, won't be home to receive said items that close to christmas, and have already thus gone else where to buy gifts....It gets worse every year.

      Delete
    3. They are really stupid because you can't wait until the last minute to buy gifts. You think their goal would be to unload as much as possible right now. i saw their stock tanked a little and it's easy to see why when they do things like this.

      Delete
    4. Right and let's not forget that waiting 13 days for items to be delivered is something we do so love when ordering off their site. I mean seriously, when you ponder the cost of their items and the painstakingly slow shipping for many of us (yes, it still takes 13 days to reach me on the US East Coast). It's a joke. I swear they are going out of their way to treat their customers horribly by listing some things to CAN only, or US only or giving the UK items that it takes weeks and weeks for CAN and US to get. Not to mention the price increases, the snail pace shipping service and poor quality items. This may be the final straw for me.

      Delete
    5. Wow, 13 days is a long time to receive an order! I order a lot of from them and typically get in 2-3 days in California, but sometimes it takes up to a week. But 13 days, that's just terrible because by the time you get it the color could be sold out or something better could have uploaded. What I don't understand is why they give the other countries like the UK and Australia all the good items! I am sure if they uploaded that that dress from the UK and that dress from Hong Kong, and the Runderful Pants (why the heck did Canada get that and not the US), they would make a killing. I don't get it, you think they would want to SELL and make MONEY from people who actually want it!

      Delete
    6. I'm about ready to make the 3 hour drive to the closest Canadian store to get those stinkin' Runderful pants. They'd be cheaper for me there anyway! And I drive a Prius, so the gas wouldn't even be that bad.

      Also, I'm also on the east coast and I don't think I've ever waited more than four days (and usually it's more like two or three). That's crazy, I wouldn't put up with that.

      Delete
    7. If Lululemon does not upload those Runderful pants on Tuesday on the US side I am quitting them until further notice. The brand does not listen to its customers wants and needs. Instead they release tank tops and mesh in the middle of Dec.

      Delete
    8. Amen!! I totally agree with you. They DO NOT LISTEN at all and all of these other countries get new items before the the US and Canada... and we're lucky if we EVER get some of them!

      Delete
    9. I just doubled checked my order history. An order that I placed on 10/9 arrived on 10/2/3 so it actually took 14 days!!! Going through and checking some of my other orders shows that I typically receive them on average within 9-10 days. It's insane because I usually cannot return something for another size because it's either sold out or no longer available.

      Delete
    10. ^^^^Sorry; that should read 10/9 and arrived on 10/23.

  13. What a joke. There are 2 new items on US side and one of them is from last year( fluffed up vest) well I guess my wallet could use a break

    ReplyDelete
  14. Not that they'll ever come out in the US, but can somebody compare the Runderful and Wind Runner pants? I know the Runderful is rulu tights + softshell-ish outer layer, so is the Wind Runner one layer that's rulu on the inside and softshell on the outside?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The wind runner's are lined with tech fleece on the front and are full tech fleece on the backside. I really like them! I believe the Runderful pants have a thinner outer fabric, not softshell.

      Delete
    2. Thanks! I think I'm going to plan on getting the Runderful, but hopefully they'll both show up in the US and I can try them on (by the time they come out here, I'll be in NYC for the holidays where my mom's apartment is 4 blocks away from a store!)

  15. Just going to try the Party Om bag in WMTM. The only other thing I'm contemplating is the rumble berry giant herringbone WUs but I like the feel of the pique Rulu Speed tights in the same color.....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Is the pique the same material they've used in the mini check WUPs, etc. in the past, or is it more "sporty" feeling? (read as: less likely to pill and snag).

      Delete
    2. Yes it's the same material as the mini check WUPs but felt a tad thinner which I don't mind actually. Sadly I'm pretty sure it pills like my other pairs but they are so comfy I take the trade off.

      Delete
    3. Party Om bags are super fun and convenient. I actually prefer them to the Festival bags.

      Delete
    4. That gives me relief because it looks like a good size bag to have.

      Delete
    5. Just curious does anyone know if the black party om on WMTM the nylon one that doesn't attract lint?
      They released 2 versions in black one that is matte that attracts lint & one (later released )that doesn't. I can't tell from the pics..so I am wary ..no need to waste $40 on a bag may attract dirt & lint. Is the color of the inner lining different between the 2? TIA

  16. I purchased the cream/gray Alo puffy jacket on Carbon38 a couple weeks ago and LOVE it! It was less expensive than LLL and I've received compliments every time I've worn it. LLL is making it very easy for me to shop other brands that actually have items I want and are available for purchase! I hope in a year LLL is just another has-been company that let their stockholders make decisions rather than listening to what their customers want.

    1. Oh yay for you! I checked out that jacket awhile back, it was super cute! I'm currently checking out Werkshop leggings, especially since they'll have an Under the Sea theme coming around in spring :) I love bright patterns and the quality is supposed to be immaculate. It's so easy to be 'over' Lulu when the only three items I want either haven't come out in the US yet, with one not having released at all (Speed Tight *Tech - I swear they're going to wait until January).

      Delete
    2. At this rate, if that happens, I wouldn't feel bad for them. Loyal customers keep waiting for them to come back around and week after week they are actually getting worse. I bought a Sweaty Betty Jacket a few weeks ago that is awesome. Bum covering, great fit, great fabric and will definitely be buying more from. When you look at other sites like Sweat Betty and Alo Yoga it seems like LLL is ripping off their styles anyways. We're talking almost exact replicas of their styles too. Shame of LLL for so many reasons.

      Delete
    3. Those Werkshop leggings are wild! Did you see their cat-stronaut leggings? Too crazy for me but fun to look at! :)

      Delete
    4. I'm intending to pick up the Runderful pants when they finally release in the US because they're somewhat unique and extremely practical for me for many reasons (but $148??? UGH) and the softshell neckewarmer once it hits WMTM (if it ever reappears - they took it off the website mysteriously!) but after that I think I'm honestly just done with them. I bought a $9 running LS from Target the other day that will hold up better than any Swiftly, and has had no problems wicking my sweat and looking cute! You know it's bad when I end up exasperated and shopping at Target for workout clothes. Also got high waist tights for $9 that look exactly like Black Grape, and despite being slightly less soft seem like they'll actually last longer than WUPs. And no signs of pilling either!

      Delete
    5. The cat-stronaut ones are actually the ones I want as of now! I wish they were full length though. In upstate NY crops aren't really an option 8 months out of the year. I'm a college student (for another 6 months!) so I can still get away with ridiculous clothes :) Like I said, I'm holding out for their spring collection. I'm hoping they do something similar to Teeki's mermaid tights - I'd get those if my first pair of Teekis didn't get a hole along the crotch in the first three wears.

  17. On the US side this is not even an upload. At least Canada got a few new things.

  18. US went from 68 items to 71. WTF? And I don't mean 2012's What The Fluff!

  19. Oh too funny...I seriously happened to pop online to look at something I was considering, saw the updated landing page, and went "ooohhh" and then went "huh...well...huh"

    However, then I went to the UK site, saw my size was back in the Fuel Green Toasty Techs, and decided screw the crazy exchange rate and waiting to see if the US ever gets them, and then enlisted my friend with a UK address to order them for me, so a good thing there is nothing "new" tonight for me on the US site :)

  20. HA then lulu has the audacity to send out a whats new email. What exactly was new on the US side Lulu that warranted an entire email.

    2. Yes! I was wondering about that jacket!

  21. I did a $700 return in store today - I couldn't even find anything I liked as an exchange.

    I returned 3 pairs of Runderful (more like Rediocre in my opinion), one pair of Beat the Sleet, a pair of the new mittens (I didn't like the split palm - not enough overlap for them to stay closed in the cold) and one &go Everywhere LS because the V in front is insanely low.

    I didn't order any of these for fun; I'd hoped to keep them. I give up on an alternative to my lined DSP. On really cold days I'll layer a toasty pair of textured WUs under DSPs. Done.

    I've made returns before, but nothing like this. It's disappointing.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You sound like me. I'm always trying to find an alternative to my DSP because they are just so big at the bottom. I want a more stream-lined pair of pants. I do love the Wind Runners but I returned the Beat The Sleet pants as well. They actually felt sticky inside without another pair of tights on... but the Wind Runners are super soft and comfy. I also returned the &go V neck for the same reason.

      Delete
    2. I hear you! I'm going to return $650 worth of lulu tomorrow. Fleece out jacket, 1 pair of Pugment WU, pace Tight in Pigment, free flow crops, DFAR pullover( decided I won't get much use out of it)

      Delete
    3. @Anonymous, I like the Wind Runners too! I kept the Black Grape ones I bought when they first launched. I'm kind of wavering between 8-10 right now and I'm glad I went with the smaller size in those. I haven't tried them on a run yet, but they're really comfortable.

      The Runderfuls were a hot mess on me. Maybe I just like a slightly more compressive fit, but the 10s were just too big at the waist and the rulu layer was too long and felt a bit too big as well. When I tried the 8s, they were fine in the waist but I found them a bit too fitted in the thighs. I really had high hopes for those; I didn't discover LLL in time to get Dog Runners.

      I too have started to branch out. I bought solid black Alo Goddess leggings on Black Friday as well as two more pairs of Zella Live In leggings (for less than half the cost of WUs and they aren't sheer).

  22. Im just sad!!!! Miss those days when there was "neat" things!

  23. I especially love that most of the US/CAN are currently in the winter aka snowy/freezing season and yet they still have swimwear available on the site. Come on LLL enough with this ridiculousness!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I also returned the runderfull pants this week as well as the beat the sleet pants. The runderfuls were really difficult to get right, the inside liner would bunch up when I was trying to put them on and took a lot of effort to get it just right and even when it was they were just bad. Tried a size up and they just looked baggy and bunchy underneath . I tried to beat the sleet to put on over toasty tech tights. I like them in theory but again I must be between sizes, size 6 toasty tech were tight in the bum and wouldn't be comfortable to run in but the size 8 was just too much material . I'm disappointed by the fit of the runderfuls as I have dog runners from last year and dog walkers from a few years ago and love both styles.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I did have fun in the store today, I got a bunch of markdowns and some gifts. They had a new shopper tote and said they think their even getting another one. I got two pair of WU stripes, a pair of WU reversible, one of the men's striped Surge tops which was completely adorable and another pair of Sattvas. I'm also in love with the Runderland socks and I got two pair.

    On another note, I wore my Toasty Tech pants for my run this morning and I'm really happy with them. It was 35 degrees and I stayed warm.

  26. I read an article in my local paper that Underarmour was going to purchase LLL...... Something like UA is looking to do better in the womens workout clothes market and LLL doesn't do as well as UA in the mens clothing so they would compliment each other. Look it up.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The fluffed up vest is from last year but that is a new colour (above) and it is an awesome vest - I have it from last year and it is far more appealing than the newer ones this year. I love mine.

    And let's face it, few at LLL seem to know what they are doing (some designers excepted). The dudes running the show think they know what women want (blech more mesh, dumb pant sensation descriptions, dumb model shots that don't show the product but actually obscure it...however on that point they might actually have heard us), and of course, the non-sensical distribution of product between Canada and US and overseas. Add to this ever increasing prices so prior level, full retail prices for wmtm items are the "deal" now. It is terrible business "sense" and a sure way to lose more and more business.

    P.S. Glad I'm not obsessed with an any item anymore for them to have that sort of hold on me

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am shocked at what is happening with LLL. In all the years of LLL shopping, I have never seen such a holiday season of slim pickings. And I thought the fall was bad. X-mas is worse! I have done more shopping this winter at Roots than Lulu!

  30. Nothing for me again this week! With the way things are looking I'm so sad I sold all my old classic Lulu that I had hung onto for 6 years that still looked amazing and had style. My bad.....

    ReplyDelete
  31. That "upload" was seriously insulting and a waste of our time. They literally switched the position of the colors to make it look new on US side. They obviously don't think much of our intelligence levels. No one at corporate seems to care their stock is tanking. Releasing nothing at biggest shopping times. I ordered a headband and that was it. Normally I would never place an order for just that, feeling like its wasteful shipping but I am so disgusted with lulu right now I don't care.
    I also agree with others in terms of just passing on things lately. Nothing is must have anymore and pricing has gotten insulting as well.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Insulting. Switching the color palates around like that...Absolutely insulting. There are a couple things I've been waiting for (runderful pants, saturated long sleeve swiftlies) which is the only reason I'm looking at the site anymore. I don't want to give them any more money for anything I'm not crazy about... They obviously don't give a crap about their North American customers, and I'd like my selective purchases to reflect how I feel. Maybe if more of us continue to be selective, we can hit them where it hurts.
