Lululemon 2010 Olympics Cheer Gear and More Revisited

Since it is the Winter Olympics right now in Sochi, I can’t help but have fond memories of four years ago, when the Winter Olympics 2010 were here in Vancouver.

I did buy some of the cheer gear that Lululemon offered. A lot of the stuff sold out quickly that I would have loved to have gotten. Here are some of the things that I did get that I have already posted.

Here is the red and white scarf. (339) You would see lots of these around!

Here is the hockey t-shirt, some would argue, the very identity of Canadians. (088)

This is the blue and yellow scarf, colors for Sweden. (214) I’m not sure what the other country’s colors there were.

And one of the happiest days of my life was when Canada won the men and women’s gold medal for hockey! Lululemon gave out these cute hockey helmet hats! (087) A lot of us were wearing these out on the streets when we were celebrating!

And of course, my favorite Lululemon offering for the Olympics was this window display! It was so cheeky and cute!

I can’t believe that it’s been four years since that time. I was hoping that there’d be some 2014 Winter Olympics gear but I haven’t seen any. Has anybody seen any? Cheer your winter Olympians on!

Lululemon Red Fleece Canada Lululemon Hockey Helmet Hat 087

This is a red fleece hat made to look like a hockey helmet. This came out during the Vancouver winter olympics in 2010. During the gold medal mens hockey final, most Vancouverites were watching the game on TV. The West 4th Avenue Lululemon store in Kitsilano (the first Lululemon store) also had a huge TV showing the game (the game was being played downtown but tickets were astronomically expensive).

The staff was handing out these hockey helmet hats to passers by.  It also included a black crayon so you could black in a tooth as well so you’d look like a typical toothless hockey player.

As you can see, it has Canada embroidered across the front. There were also navy colored USA hockey helmet hats as well but no one dared to wear that at this time! (I got one for my American friend only after I promised it wouldn’t be worn until after the game was over).

This is the side view of the hat. It shows the Canadian symbol of a maple leaf embroidered. There are also two holes. You can also see the black strap as well.

Here is the other side view, showing the embroidered Lululemon omega symbol.

Here is the view from the top.

Here is a close up view of the black under the chin strap that you can snap closed. There are white fleece ear covers.

Here is the label inside the hat.

This is such a fun hat and a lot of people wore these while participating in the winter olympics festivities all over Vancouver.

I have such good memories wearing that hockey helmet that day especially when the Canadian mens hockey team won the gold medal! The Canadian womens hockey team also won a gold medal! It was so nice for the host country to win double golds for the men and womens teams! (For both men and womens hockey it was Canada, USA and Finland)

(Team USA got their revenge and did win the gold medal for the mens paralympics hockey.)
