I walked into Lululemon yesterday for the first time since this gem, in which the CEO and co-founder of Lululemon, a high-end specialty retail store that caters to mainly young women, yogis and runners, implied that ::ahem:: some women’s bodies were not made for his yoga pants. Read: the founder just called us too fat to wear his pants.
I mean, I don’t pay nearly $100 for your pants for you to insult me and call me fat. Plus I get all my running and yoga apparel for the most part from Fleet Feet, so it wasn’t a huge deal to quit paying Lululemon visits.
But yesterday, I decided I was over being mad at Lulu, especially since they put the gag on the co-founder, and now, former CEO, and stopped in to see what was going on. I made a few observations, that I adored! For one, the girls who work there are adorable, which I forgot. I don’t ever remember being that cute when I was working retail, so color me jealous!
These sweatpants which felt like heaven.
And I decided I need a gym bag. I real one. I’m tired of shoving my planner next to sweaty tights and sweaty pairs of underwear – it’s time (now that I’ve been working out consistently for like 4 years), that I graduate to a real gym bag with real pockets for the dirty clothes and pockets for my phone and for my sneaks and stuff.
So the iPhone went into selfie mode, and I took a selfie with my two favorite by the most glorious full-length mirror the store had to offer.
So the real question here is is…
Are you still mad at Lululemon? Why or why not?
Which gym bag do I get out of the two pictured above?

I didn’t shop there often anyway – but like the video said – kind of in the same place for me as Abercrombie & Fitch. Not worth giving my money to at this point! 🙂
Totally understood. I will say, once I went in there yesterday, I felt this sense of calm, like I was at home. I feel most at home at gyms and in fitness specialty shops, and I loved the way new sneaks and new technical clothing looks and smells.
I’m not opposed to eventually giving them a shot again 🙂 I absolutely love Nike and Under Armour outlets for the same reason! Oh, and the outlet sales obviously.
I usually get all my stuff through my job at Fleet Feet, but I’ll cheat on them occasionally if the product is quality enough 🙂
