What an awesome umbrella! The lights are down the ribs and they're a soft yellow, not a LED blue, so they look great with the burnt orange of the fabric. The pole and umbrella-opening mechanism work very well and the umbrella looks like it costs twice as much, at least. I've had lots of comments on it - all positive and people wanting to know where they can buy one. They're shocked when I tell them the price! I have an iron table and chairs that this is now part of and it's next to an ivory-cushioned sectional so I added a few coral pillows to the sectional and my deck now looks like it's right out of Coastal Living magazine - just beautiful!

This is a very nice umbrella for the price. I have only had it a few weeks so cannot attest to its longevity but so far we love it. The lights are a soft, warm glow and do not attract a lot of bugs. There are three settings for the lights but two of them we do not use as they are a "dicso" type flash pattern. The color was very close to the picture and there is even a built in thermometer. It does not come with a base so make sure to purchase that separately. I would definitely recommend this product to others. In fact, my next door neighbor is buying one!

We purchased the same umbrella last year in red. It was a great addition to our patio. We liked it so much that we ordered this second one for the pool area. You should definitely make sure to bring it and the cord in during the winter months if you have "wintery area". We did not and this spring had difficulty getting the first one working. I attribute that to our own negligence since we had some harsh weather.

This umbrella is terrific. I had my doubts about ordering something this large through online, but it is exactly what I wanted. The little lights are embedded in the ribs of the awning and the cord runs through the pole and out the bottom. The lights are not obnoxious either! I saw a market umbrella at Costco and it was not as inexpensive or as nice as this one. Totally pleased! It is sturdy, even in high Colorado winds. It is so much easier for me to carry around, pick up and take down than my old wood umbrella. Im 128-lb woman and it has always been a pain to get these umbrellas in and out of their stands. This one is aluminum, cranks, has lights, and great shade. perfect.

Overstock has never disappointed, and same with this umbrella. It is a sturdy product, beautiful color and the lights are incredible. I was suprised that they program to blink, fade in and out or just light solid. How cool is that. The umbrella also has a thermometer built in to the handle which was an extra fun feature!

I have only had this for a short time but can say that the umbrella looks great and provides soft lighting. While it does not give a lot of light it does provide nice ambiance. The color is perfect for my outdoor cushions and adds rich color that looks great with my cast aluminum bronze/black furniture.
I had a $ umbrella, exactly this color that broke in half this summer due to winds and rain. I purchase this one to replace that umbrella and I am very satisfied. I have not had time to add the lights, but I can tell you that the quality and the price are just right.
This is NOT a 9' umbrella. It's only 8 feet. I was replacing an old 9' umbrella with this one because I loved the orange/red color. But when we got it up over the table, my husband and I both noticed it looked a lot smaller than our older umbrella. When we measured, each side was only 48" inches- totalling 8'. We sent it back thinking it was just a one time error and reordered the same umbrella, in 9'. Another 8' umbrella was sent. So- TropiShade can't measure their umbrella's correctly because they are all labeled 9', but they are 8'. If you need an 8' umbrella, this is truly a beautiful, lighted umbrella. Wish it came in an actual 9' size.
We purchased this umbrella because our old lighted umbrella no longer worked. The fabric is excellent: soft and "flowy" but still very solid. The umbrella itself it constructed well, with the plug below the table for ease of access. The amber glow of the lights are exactly what I wanted. The lights themselves are so tiny, you barely notice them when not on. But when lit, they give enough light to read by, but the soft amber color keeps things cozy and "warm". There are three settings: Flashing, "Disco", and steady on. Not sure why anyone would want "flashing" or "disco", but they're there if you want. All in all, I love this and would purchase again.
I purchased this 9' umbrella online because I fell in love with the color & the price. Let me tell you, when it was delivered I loved it even more! It's a well made umbrella. We experience a lot of high wind where we live and its held up nicely. Ive received a lot of compliments on the color!
