Pleat to Street Skirt
Pleats destroyed by water
I loved this skirt, but went to wash it, followed the instructions, and now the pleats are warped.
What's the point of a run skirt if you can't wash it??

I wore this skirt today for a state tournament for tennis, it was awesome. It felt great, was light weight and comfortable. I bought the navy and white and wish I would've bought one in each color before my sizes sold out. LOVE it. It fits great and TTS.

Best Skirt Yet!
I have several skirts and always like trying the new styles. This is by far my favorite skirt yet. The fit is perfect, the fabric is light and sits so nicely, very flattering. The pockets are fantastic. I can put a smartphone in the leg pocket, something I can't do with any of my other skirts. LOVE LOVE LOVE this skirt! Please make more in many colors and patterns!

Small print color
Wonderful idea! Great execution! More figure flattering in darker solid colors. Can't wait for Canada to get these colors. Otherwise- feminine, playful, stylish, ttys, lovely pattern. Maybe a tall version? Maybe a real skirt without shorts and a longer length? Dropped waist dress with layers of pleats ?

Pleats lay flat even if you have a booty!
This review is for all you lululovers that have a booty. :) I used to play soccer and even though I'm in my thirties and have kids I still have that soccer butt. I was afraid this skirt wouldn't lay flat on me like it does the models. Knife pleats can be tricky for girls like us! But, the skirt lays flat and is super flattering. It is a fantastic change from the ruffle-butt look on my other lulu skirts. My husband loves it too which is a nice bonus. I just ordered my second one today.

so different, so versatile, so cute
For reference I am 5'4" 130lbs 32/34A - I almost always buy size 6 in skirts and pants (and tops) - Rival skirts are a size 6 for sure and the PaceSetter can be size 4 if it is 4way stretch fabric, but I usually go up to 6 to avoid front panel of skirt being snug against p ubic bone.
I ordered the bumbleberry stripe in size 4 because 6 was sold out - and it FIT PERFECT. No muffin top on waist band, the pleats sit nice and flat - in fact had I gone with the usual size 6 the skirt would have been too full - especially to do pump, etc. It fits perfect so that was a nice surprise.
The one reviewer is right, as I walk into gym the skirt tends to get caught between my legs and I have to keep pulling it out. It could have been because it was a windy day.
This will work for casual wear (not office, a bit too short) - and works for gym. I am ordering the mauve print skirt though I am not sure if I will like it in the print/colour...but I love the style!

This skirt is Legend (wait for it) dary. Legendary. Not even kidding when I say this is ont of the top 5 best things to happen to me all year. I LOVE this skirt.
I am not a fan of shorts (skirts are more flattering) and this looks absolutely stunning on. I get so many compliments when I wear it, from every age group. The skirt is dressy enough that I wore it to work with a sweater, but casual and functional enough to wear paddle boarding, walking the dogs, hiking, bopping around town, etc. The pockets in this thing are awesome. Perfect to put my phone and keys when i take the dogs to the park. Unlike the pace setter, these pockets are functional for more than just a tennis ball. The legs of the shorts are also more comofrotable to me than the pace setter. The fabric is awesome, it doesn't wrinkle, doesn't look dirty, and just plain looks awesome. The one thing I will say is that when it's windy, the skirt can get a bit Marilyn Monroe-esque. Since the shorts are attached, this doesn't bother me. Maybe if you're running a long distance, this might not be the top choice, but it totally works for any other activity. Most of you reading this have pace setters: besides for a long run, this is soooo much cuter. More functional, dressier, more comfortable, etc. It's not your momma's tennis skirt! It's wicked amaze balls.
Lulu, thank you thank you thank you for making this! I love it. I love it so much. I bought all four colors imediately, and now I am buying back-ups. Bumble berry, Plum, or bordeaux drama would be awesome for this skirt. And I would sacrifice eating for a week if I could get this in fuel green. I would trade in all the skirts in my closet for this one in more colors. (That's saying a lot because I have at least 100 other skirts). Please make more!!!
Summary: Buy it. You will love it. Did I mention it should come in more colors? And did I say how awesome this skirt is?

Super super sad :(
I love this skirt. It's awesome. I'm a bit of a lululemon run skirt hoarder. I have this in inkwell.I am, however, very sad that I must once again go to eBay to buy this skirt in the bumble stripe. I haven't bought it yet but the lowest price on eBay is $99 not including the shipping. I had read an article in the paper a few months ago that said lululemon was trying to stop the practice of selling their products at a very high price on eBay.
Anyway, the skirt fits true to size and I'm very happy with it. I just wish Lululemon would make more product so that I wouldn't have to go to eBay yet again to buy a size 4 skirt in the happy bumble stripe

Super cute, but not functional
I cannot say how excited I was to get the Pleat to Street skirt. As a loyal Pace Setter skirt wearing gal, I thought this would help to freshen up my look while being true to my workout style. The pleats are adorable, the fabric is smooth and light weight, the liner is perfection and even includes a cell phone pocket! As if that isn't enough, it's super flattering! BUT, if you are running quickly the looser fit can easily cause the front of the skirt to get caught between your legs. I wore this on a 6 mile trail run (combination of trail, road, flat, and hills) and probably had to adjust the skirt at least 5 times. So, probably cute for a walk or something less dynamic than running.

Hot, hot, hot! More colors, please!
I purchased this skirt during its premier upload, in my standard Lulu Size 4, in two colorways: the striped version, called "Blossom Street Stripe Bumble Berry Bordeaux Drama/Bumble Berry," and the solid Black version. I'm so glad I bought both of my favorite colors, instead of trying out the style in just one or the other, as all colors in all sizes were sold out within less than 48 hours of this skirt's premier upload!
DYNAMITE. I'm a sucker for a gorgeous knife pleat skirt, and this one doesn't disappoint. The pleats lay perfectly flat all the way around the skirt, from the point at the waistband where they begin, and running down to each skirt's hem. I included pics from a few angles of each color, so you can see how wonderful the pleats lay. Just perfect!
The silicone bits beneath the built in shorts are just like the Pacesetter, and they hold the shorts in place.
I'll be keeping both the striped one and the black one, and hoping Lulu offers this in more colors soon. Thanks for another winner, Lulu!
