|This picture doesn't even capture a quarter of the line|
|Umm... why did someone think it was a good idea to bring their little dog to get trampled?|
So then 3 hours went by... then 4...
|Right outside the door! Where they were letting in like 2 people at a time...|
and alas, we were inside.
|My iphone died at this point because of all the facebook and text messages I've been sending while in line for 4 hours|
I was so tired from waiting! My friend's friend went early and was done so she got us some food at least so we didn't die of hunger. I also was able to get a bottle of water from the vending machine and filled it up once from the water fountain. So that kept me alive. But I'm serious, if I had thought waiting for 4 hours was a remote possibility, I would have got my ass up at an hour earlier to wait. Or just not go at all.
Here is the price list:
So as you can see, not all deals were good. I think the dresses, bras, shorts, skirts and jacket prices were good. The accessories prices were good too. But they didn't have any dresses, bras, and barely any shorts and skirts lol. They continued to bring merchandise in, but you can tell it was just the same crap over and over again. Most of the stuff I've seen on mark down online or in store before. I think if you had gone earlier, you could have gotten some better things, but by the time I got there, a lot of things were gone.
I really wanted some shorts or skirts, but did not see a single pair of Speed shorts. I also wanted socks but they only had men's socks. I wanted some tanks, cool racerbacks, whatever, they didn't have any. Most tanks they had were like the Track Attack tanks or others that have been on markdown. I wanted some crops like wunder unders or luxtreme crops but they only had colors I didn't want. A lot of pizzazz, love red, and some kind of blue. They also had quite a few pairs of pinkalicious In the Flow crops. They had a shit load of these white Power Flow crops that were marked down to $9. I tried them on when they first came out in the store, and remember them being a pretty bad fit so I wasn't even tempted at $9. Luminous tanks were $9 as well and they had tons of pink and blue colors but I didn't want any either.
So, what did I get? lol... just one bag! Walked out in under $200. They were using left over bags from Seawheeze. I asked for a small one as well.
|Coastal Om & Sand Savasana swim wear, St Moritz Jacket, Glacier Vest, Full Stride Skirt, Runder Under LS and Shady Lady Run Visor|
|Foxy Lulu Thongs - 4 pairs|
Right when I was about to go inside, they announced that swim wear was marked down to $9 a piece. I thought that was a great deal because I actually really liked the swim wear when they first came out. I didn't buy them because I just didn't feel like spending full price on them. But for $9 a piece, I had to get more than 1 pair!
Coastal Om triangle bikini top and Sand Savasana bottom:
Here's the opposite combo in a different color: Sand Savasana top and Coastal Om bottom. I think these can be all mixed and matched which is awesome.
The top in the top picture is a size 6, everything else is a 4. I didn't try anything on because I didn't want to be bothered at the sale, I got it in size 6 because the size 4 looked small. I really like these! I think these were by far the best deals.
Although the Shady Lady Run Visor is only $4 and will be perfect for tennis:
The Full Stride Skirt was $24 so it wasn't a bad deal, but I think it is a little loose on me in the back and side. The back is longer than front and it is longer than other Lulu running skirts in regular length. It's not too bad, but it's whatever in my opinion. This is a size 4R as well. I do like the very wide waistband. It's a comfy fit for sure. I can wear it for tennis too.
The Runder Under LS was $39 and I like it a lot as well. It's so so comfy, and it reminds me a lot of my Turn Around LS. I love the solid black down the arms and back though. Also got size 4.
It's reversible too! I like the reverse side a lot as well:
|Logo is on top on this side vs lower right on the other side|
Funny, I was just thinking I wanted a dark colored long sleeve shirt, and here it was! This one I found in a bin I wasn't supposed to look in. It was right outside of fitting rooms and someone had chucked it on the bottom of a box, obviously passed on it. I grabbed it but right after that, some workers told me I wasn't supposed to be in that area.
I don't know why I'd need this, but I thought the Glacier Vest in burning yellow was pretty cute. Although I was torn between size 4 and 6. There were no mirrors anywhere there so my friend was my mirror. She said 4 was good but I kind of think 6 might have been better because it feels tight in the chest. But since I live in such a warm climate, I won't layer anything under this. I don't even know when/why I would ever wear it. Maybe if I go on vacation to a cold place! It was $39, but it retailed for like $150 so I think this was a great deal too. I never pay attention to these heavy winter stuff because I don't need them, especially at their high retail prices. But this price is definitely way more acceptable. It's suuuuper soft and cozy inside. Very very comfy. I also liked the white one that I saw some people carrying in their hands but I couldn't find any on racks.
|This is the softest thing|
So the inner piece can be completely zipper off, which is this piece you see down in the pic below, which is attached to the hood. I love that you can go with or without hood!
The outside has another zipper and magnetic flap closure:
Did you go to the sale today? Did you see me?? This is what I was wearing!
They didn't give out any shopping bags inside, and they don't allow big purses. I'm really glad I went with my cross shoulder bag so I didn't have to worry about carrying a purse. They had these canvas gym bags for sale, I didn't buy one, but I did grab one to use as a shopping tote and just left it at the cashier. That worked out really well. I padded myself in the back for that. :)
So I got there at around 7:45 and left at about 1:15. I was inside for maybe an hour total. The girl at check out was supposed to cut off all my tags but she was really weird and possibly on something so she forgot to do that for half of my stuff. She also gave me a 10% additional discount which my friend did not get with a different cashier. Of course I'm not complaining about that part! I also didn't remind her to cut off my tags. I actually tried to get the other tags but she didn't budge on that one.
I might consider going back tomorrow or Sunday to see if they have last minute deals and if they've added new, more exciting stuff. I doubt it, so I will leave immediately if the line is more than 30 minutes long. I'm done waiting in line for a long time after today. But I think they might have more heavy discounts later on so I'm a little tempted to go check it out. Now I'm so tired! I actually went to the gym after standing around for 5 hours and did a hard leg workout followed by cardio! My body is very tired. It's bed time!
