Lululemon Love – The Pleasing, The Will, The New Slim Groove
December 30, 2012 § 10 Comments
It’s been a while since I last visited Lululemon. Being responsible et al.; saving my pennies for less fun things like post divorce salvation.
Still, I love a good trip through the North Raleigh store and I was greeted by a hug from Ms. Jami, new mama whom I hadn’t seen since her gorgeous baby girl was still cooking in her belly.
The hug alone was worth the visit.
I haven’t been all that jazzed by the offerings on recent Lulu racks (have they seemed to be geared younger lately or is it me?), so I didn’t expect to fall in love with a nondescript, non-pulse raising pair of pants that ended up in my dressing room.
The Pleasing Pant didn’t look so pleasing, really, but after wiggling out of my often worn New Slim Grooves, it was instant love.
True to size, softer than soft, shaped like an un-embarrasing harem pant with zippers at the legs; they are the perfect cozy pant (cozy does not mean you have to look like a slob). I didn’t despise my rear end in them, either. A true testament to greatness!
Made from four-way stretch terry, I am not sure I’d ever submit them to sweaty vinyasa, but thrown on with a tee to pick up kids at school or to hit the grocery store or some other typical mommy business, they are just right.
I didn’t buy them the other day and I’m glad, as they are now marked down again; from $88.00 to $69.00, now listed at $49.00.
Since I’m sharing my lemony love, I should mention that for my last three yoga classes I wore the (still available) Skinny Will Pant; black, adjustable waist that folds up or down, pockets, and a skinny leg.
I’m not usually a big fan of tights (thigh issues) and the Wills have been sitting in my closet for months. But with the cooler weather, I pulled them out to give them a chance and happily, they performed (stayed put, wicked well). The ability to raise or lower the waistband is a great plus. There’s nothing worse than purchasing a pair of yoga pants that fall and slide during what’s meant to be a time of focus and freedom of movement.
The Will Pants I have are still full price, but the beaming blue pair are currently waiting in “We Made Too Much.” It’s a pretty blue. Worth another look.
Fallen in love with anything at Lulu lately?
