For The Love of Lulu

I love lululemon.  For the longest time, I didn't give it the time of day.  All I knew was that it was overpriced yoga wear.  And it is expensive...I still firmly believe that.  Then I touched and tried on a Remix Hoodie and I was hooked.  Hopelessly hooked. 




Since that first sweatshirt, I have bought a few more, because there is really nothing like them.  They're the way sweats should be: thick, durable and a good fit.  And lululemon backs up their product.  The zipper busted 3 years after purchase and I thought I would take it back to the store to see if they dealt with a particular tailor that knew the constrution of their clothing.  I had full intention of paying for it.  To my surprise, they took my sweatshirt, my name, my address, fixed it for free and shipped it to my door.  I did not pay a cent (even though I paid a small fortune for the top in the first place!).

My all-time fave lulu product is the Savasana Wrap and they get these in the stores once in a blue moon...I never see them online anymore.  The Savasana is worn as you like and is especially perfect for any type of travel...







Be sure to check out Lululemon Loot!  Oh yes.  A web page dedicated to discounted lululemon items and free shipping (FedEx!) to Canada and the US.  But if you see something, buy it fast because in no time, it's gone.  My recent Loot! finds:


 

and the Stir It Up Pant (I cut the stir-ups off, 'cause I can't deal with stir-up pants!  The result was very pleasing and they are a full length pant despite what the shop picture looks like.):




Do you have a lululemon fetish too?  What's your favourite?

I love lulu- I especially love anything they make that is reversable-it's like two outfits in one- Or my last lulu purchase was a black/white dress that could also be worn as a skirt THEREFORE FOUR outfits in one- Love it.
