love the clothes- very cute and comfortable. However, their prices just make it hard to spend that sort of money on a piece of clothing sometimes
Lululemon offers complementary yoga classes on sunday morning at all store locations (if I'm not mistaken). I highly recommend anyone and everyone to take a class! Go with a friend or escape on your own, I kid you not you won't regret it, plus it's free of charge! It's also great for beginner yogis who want to experiment and or are unsure and don't want to commit to scheduled classes! Mats are provided on site if needed and the atmosphere is great as always!
*I own a pair of groove pants and their scuba hoodies, have to say though the prices are fairly steep the products are very durable and well made. I love that they pay attention to detail, the seams, "zipper garage", and thumbholes etc. they really cater their products for absolute comfort while maintaining charming looks.
The Lululemon outlets are a fun place to go! I use the one in Burnaby (suburb of Vancouver) and the one in Burlington, which you pass on the I-5 highway from Vancouver to Seattle.
Pricing is comparable at the US and Canadian outlets when the dollar is at par. The outlets are hit or miss but the Burlington outlet is typically well stocked. They have a ton of their discontinued items marked down with the biggest savings on the slightly weird designs. That being said, I've found some great deals from the classic racerback tanks, to shorts, to groove crops and pants.
Sizing is a bit of a problem with the popular sizes like mine typically not having great stock. If you're at either extreme (size 2 or size 12), you'll be happy!
Love the clothes. Great quality that lasts FOREVER!
Pricing is steep and makes it hard to afford...even if the prices were a bit lower it would be doable. Most of what I have has been gifts.
As a friend and I were driving from Vancouver to Seattle, I did a double take when I saw the sign for the Lululemon Outlet off of the I5 in Burlington WA. I promptly pulled off of the highway and went to check it out. Sure enough, it was an outlet location and turned out to be one of the BEST shopping experiences I have had a Lululemon. They had everything sorted by size then length, then color and the selection was HUGE. It was not just stuff that was older but they had a lot of the stuff that I just saw a few months ago in the Lululemon in West Van. A pair of 3/4 length pants went for approx 29-50 bucks as compared to 50-88. I will TOTALLY be returning to this location again soon. It is totally worth the drive south of our border!
I love my Lululemons. I know that they are ubiquitous, but there is a reason for that.
I bought my first pair of yoga pants when my daughter was about 10 months old. I wondered whether I could pull it off, with some of my extra post-partum weight still on ... but I had nothing to fear, and the fit and the feel were wonderful. And my ass hadn't looked that great in a long time!
I've been addicted ever since, and used to wear them only in the gym during yoga, pilates, hip hop aerobics... but now I'm even wearing them everyday. The Luon fabric is wonderful, even after a sweaty workout, you never feel "sticky" and the colours and the styles are wonderful. And they are wash and wear. Don't have to worry about wrecking them in the dryer, as long as you wash like with like (no towels please).
From young kids to grandparents, there's a style to suit everyone.
The products are on the pricey side, but worth every penny, especially if there is a sale.
