Hi friends! So I recently came across this post that made me go back into my email and re-read an email I was sent a few days ago regarding PVbody and a change in their service. I thought they were simply adding in their own brand of clothing with the other brands, but apparently that’s not the case.
Obviously I misread the email, because in it PVbody states that:
“After carefully listening to customer feedback over the past few months, we’ve decided to take it all into consideration and launch our very own new line of chic, athletic wear, Ellie!
Ellie is the newest brand in high-end, fashionable women’s athletic wear. We will have more of what you love – fun, bold, and trendy fitness fashions with a variety of designs. With a new collection every month, Ellie will consistently deliver the latest styles that are exclusively for our members! You can expect to see top quality materials, durable stitching, and of course, the perfect fit! The best part is that you will get to choose which two pieces you want each month!
Starting February 1st, the pv.body site will redirect viewers to Ellie.com and current pv.body subscriptions will begin receiving the Ellie clothing line in their packages.”
When I read it, I assumed that meant they would be simply adding Ellie to the other brands of clothing that they send out, not that they would be doing it exclusively and getting rid of the other brands all together. Obviously the main selling point to me, and probably to many of you, was that you could get Lululemon clothing at practically half the price. THAT is a great business idea and clearly got a lot of people to sign up. However, now the formula has changed and PVbody will be sending anyone who has a membership to the service this new brand, Ellie. Maybe Ellie will be great, but I just wanted to let everyone know that this change is coming. Many of you signed up through my referral code and I feel badly that the equation is being changed on you so suddenly. For that, I truly apologize. Had I known that this was going to happen originally, I never would have promoted the company (unless I had tried Ellie clothing beforehand and loved it.)
So, that’s what’s going on right now. In the comments section on Sarah’s post, Hope from PVbody clarifies why the change was made and that Ellie is going to be made from the same sewing machines and fabric as Lululemon, however I’m not totally sure how that can be since Lulu has created special fabrics like Luon and Luxtreme that they have patented . I encourage you to read it so you can know all the info. I want you to know you can cancel your membership at anytime and wanted you to be aware of this new update with the company. I apologize sincerely if this has caused any kind of inconvenience for anyone! Hope’s contact info is in her comment as well if anyone needs to speak with a PVbody customer service person directly. Also, don’t hesitate to reach out to me if I can help in anyway…and again I am SO SORRY if this causes issues for anyone.
I only try to promote things that I think you, as readers, will enjoy, and I hope Ellie is as fantastic as they are promoting so those of you already signed up for that month will still receive a quality product. You can also look into getting a refund, as well.
