Arrrg new Define Jackets

So I was on West 4th today for a walk with the family looking for a place to treat my husband to a fathers day brunch and we walked past the Lululemon and I decided to be nonchalant about going in. just "whatever, there's a Lululemon, I don't need to go in" so that he wouldn't think I'm completely obsessed. Plus I figured there'd be nothing new till Monday. Now I see that they have new define jackets in Pig Pink and Wish Blue which I would have loved to have seen in person. Now, the Define is not my jacket mainly because I don't like the collar on it and I don't like the detailing on the back, but I do think it's a really flattering jacket on and I would have loved to see the new colors and new zippers in person so that I could report back to you. Apparently the zipper is a chunkier rubberized zipper (scuba style zippers?). The blue looks really nice, close to little boy blue. Maybe it's to Little Boy Blue what Frisbee is to Angel.
Ill probably head to the West 4th location on Monday to be guaranteed a look at these.

I wish the Stride would come in new colors as that is my new favourite jacket. I got the Angel Blue one a while back (the white zipper is actually ok, I can't imagine it would look as good all one color in the Angel) and it's been too warm to wear it or I just always go with my Free2be, but over the last few days I've been wearing it like crazy and seeing older versions of it around everywhere. I saw a girl at Oakridge wearing one that looked (probably from spring) like Heathered Wee Stripe with Chirp and it was soo pretty. I love it for it's length, not as structured as the Define and I love the hood.

  2. I can't wait to see this new blue color. I hope they make it in a solid color stride. I have 4 define jackets now and only 1 stride. I'm noticing in the US the new colors in define first then eventually come in stride but not all colors. The last batch was only angel & potion & wish I would have stride potion instead of my define.

  3. I've seen a Potion Stride at Coquitlam centre last week.

  4. I know the potion stride is out but I had already purchased the define jacket in the potion purple. It took about 45 days for the US to receive the strides in angel & potion. It's so frustrating because you don't know what colors they will make the strides in. Say I pass on this wish blue define waiting for a stride and then they don't make it in a stride, by then all the defines in that color could be sold out. I love Lululemon but I hate that you if you wait too long to buy something you may never get the opportunity again. It sounds like you're going tomorrow to check these out in the store, I can't wait to see your review.
