I just found out that shopper are finding Baby Lulu two-piece girls outfits at Costco for $19.00. The sets are long-sleeve shirts and pants. These sets are usually found at boutiques for at least $40!
I love Costco and I can always use another reason to shop there! Good luck if you go hunting for them!
Costco also has THE BOUTIQUE LINE’s BABY LULU and YES!!!! Ladies!!! GREGGY GIRL!!!! for only $22 for Holiday and Winter styles!!They really have Greggy Girl’s Boutique quality in their infamous velour sets. Cute, Cute Holiday. Costco must really have some buying power because I saw a couple of these same sets for $84 on other sitess. Costco is like shopping at Nordstroms or your local boutique now. They have alot of designer brands now. Ed Hardy, Lacoste, True Religion jeans for adults. I Love this place. Finally, good clothess at prices people can afford in this economy. This isn’t any wal mart stuff. This is the real thing. I am so excitd. Check your local Costco. Maybe they will keep getting in all of the greggy girl styles. I would love to finally be able to afford more of the Greggy Girl line. They have so many different styles, it’s not like you are just buying 2 sets and you have the entire collection. This designer is versatile. I am very happy to also see that they have added models of other races as well.
The Baby Lulu available at Costco is not the same quality as the Baby Lulu you find at Boutiques…the fabric, construction and details definitely not the same. They seem to have been made specifically for Costco at a lower price point. The Greggy Girl seeems not quite as nice as what I saw from them last season…however I have not seen any of this Fall’s clothing yet (from a boutique) and Greggy Girl’s production quality does vary from season to season. Therefore tough to say if they produced some lesser (less expensive) versions of some outfits or just did huge production runs of some select outfits. I just have never seen plastic decorative buttons on their clothes before and their signature raged roses look a bit too “ragged” and sparse.
Beware of the Baby Lulu at Costco. We have heard rumors from inside the company that Baby Lulu is hurting and in trouble, so they have decided to make a cheap line and send it to Costco to hope to make up for their falling profits. This line is not the same quality/materials but is still be marketed under the same name to try and dupe everyone into buying it. It’s basically a cheap knock-off that won’t hold up like the original Baby Lulu brand. Just know that what you’re getting is not the same.

I have bought lots of Baby Lulu at Costco and LOVE it! It has held up really well. And it was only $16! Don't be afraid or a fool and buy this cute cotton play clothes for anymore than $16.
I've purchased baby lulu at costco as well as the greggy girl outfit for this holiday season I will tell you now, and sad to say so that the quality in both lines is definatley NOT the same as my local boutique. I will still shop at costco but from here on out my special items will come from my local boutique from now on. 😎 I also want to support my local companies, doesn't Wal-Mart make enough as it is.

Please be assured that the select Baby Lulu items that have been available at Costco were made with the same quality of fabrics and the same sewing methods that are used in the creating our specialty store collections. And yes, we even used the same label!
We thought selling at Costco might be a great way to promote Baby Lulu to a wide audience of potential first time customers, and we made sure that the pricing was affordable too. Not exactly handing out "bite size" free food samples like you may get at your local grocery store, but the idea is the same.
Our factories agreed to a very special price, and because Costco is actually a wholesale club that earns most of its profits from the memberships that it sells, they too put a very low margin on top their cost.
Baby Lulu has shipped Costco one time in 2008 and one time in 2009, and are scheduled for one shipment in 2010. We ship fourteen separate collections to our core children's specialty boutiques throughout the year. These collections often include more fashion items and a much better selection.
Hopefully, our valued consumers will understand that their local specialty boutique isn't "over-charging" them, but that they simply got a great "once a year deal" at Costco.
We apologize if anyone has a had any negative experience with our clothing, so please let us know as we do stand behind our products and are continually striving to improve. Thanks !!
