For me, :"glorious" is too much, 犹荣, but not that 犹荣 since it's a defeat after all. So, I'd perhaps say "defeat but no disgrace", "a no-disgrace defeat", " ...

How about " a graceful defeat"? And I've heard about "a victorious defeat".
If winter comes, can spring be frozen ahead?

defeat with honor, defeat in honor

From a commentary on the Iraq Study Group report:

That's what it is: a plan for defeat with honor. To put the report in very simple terms, its message is: The United States got its ass kicked, time to go. Or, if you prefer a direct quote: "The ability of the United States to shape outcomes is diminishing. Time is running out." And later they ponder how to "avert catastrophe."
