Quick Store Report

Since we no longer have What We Love to rely on I thought I'd give you a heads up as to what my store had this morning and what we will likely see uploaded tomorrow. The Sunaway items are made of a thin luxtreme swim fabric by the way. Sort of like the If You're Lucky LS's. My store, Coquitlam BC, also had a bunch of Wanderlust items. Both of the bags, the highest times and the kimonos as well as one or two tanks. 

Sunaway Runaway Long Sleeve


Sunaway Runaway SS

This rash guard was in my store in a new print. The Pop Cut Fatigue print was quite striking in this. 

I wish I'd gotten a picture of it but this Strappy Back One Piece is now out in an ocean wave print similar to last years water bound singlet. The print in the bathing suite is the same tone top to bottom vs. ombre.

  1. Was the runaway short sleeve top same on back as long sleeve ? I like the back detail of long sleeve but would prefer it in short sleeve....and did you happen to notice if they had hero blue minimalist? Thx a bunch for posting...I miss wwl...

    1. Thanks! I would do it for sure if my store had the same inventory as other local stores. Unfortunately my store gets far fewer items and I can't make it down to the other 'a' stores on a regular basis. I can do it with what they do get but it probably won't be the full product drop.

  4. I was underwhelmed when I was in-store this weekend. Lots of the material currently in use just feels soooo cheap and turned me off of trying several items I had been interested in. The Wanderlust stuff also didn't appear to be selling at all.

  5. LLM, what's your take on http://elevatelululemon.com/ ?

    1. It's a really strange publicity stunt. As a shareholder he has the right to sue the board of directors for mismanaging the company. They have an obligation to maximize profit for shareholders. He has clearly documented where he feels they didn't fulfill their duty to shareholders. He has the means to pay the legal fees of such a law suit.. litigation is a strong motivator for the board to actually make changes....so what is his motivation of doing this so publicly vs. truly looking out for shareholder interest? My take is that he has a vested interest in a direct competitor of Lululemon which is Kit and Ace. He's gone to great pains to show that K&A is not sharing the same market as LLL but actually it is, even though he's changing the marketing terms of athleisure. He's walking a fine line of undermining Lululemon, and proving that he has an interest in the well being of lululemon. K&A is not a publicly traded company. Wilson investment in K&A has 100% return to Wilson. What is Chips portion of Lululemon? 22%?

    3. Great reply, Lulumum!

      A little off topic, but I don't get how Kit and Ace could be competing in the same market or compared with Lululemon. Personally, I don't think they're comparable, but that's just my own personal opinion. I have absolutely zero interest in anything I've seen from Kit and Ace but LOVE Lululemon and am a huge Lululemon addict (except for their &go line and other similar pieces - those are definitely a no go for me!).

  6. LLM thank you so much for posting this! I love your store reports :) I have been missing WWL and overseas upload reviews lately. I'm liking Sunaway tops, wish there will be one in Seal or Tofino or Sea Mist

    1. Thanks! I shall try. My closest store gets less product than other stores though.

  8. Thanks LLM for the Monday Mini Sneak Peak, it's better than nothing! I am assuming that the Sunaway Runaway Line is black and white only? It's hard to know if a person should hold out for more colours or is this it. I am finding selection quite limited in Canada for a lot of product like jackets, s/s tops and 17" inseam crops. In Australia there was harding anything new this week and even Hong Kong and UK drops have been very small the last month or so. The only Country though with a decent selection in most categories is Hong Kong. What are your thoughts on this?

    1. I agree. I'm finding the product allotment very frustrating. I'm also finding that there is more product online than actually makes it to the stores. It's very piecemeal

      The Sunaway items came in blue (hero?) and red Boom Juice.

    2. Hi LLM This is Anon 5:30a.m. That true and why I usually order on line if I see something I want at upload because it doesn't always get into the stores I shop.
