Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

This is the West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva retail store. This is the second Ivivva store in Vancouver. The first Ivivva store is in Kitsilano, close to the first Lululemon store. I have been to the Kitsilano Ivivva store many times since it is in my neighborhood, but this was the first time I had gone to this West Vancouver store.

For those who do not know, Ivivva is a store for younger girls, though I have seen some smaller adult women rocking Ivivva clothing.

This West Vancouver Ivivva store is right beside the West Vancouver Lululemon store.

Here is the Lululemon store right beside it.

I think that this West Vancouver Ivivva store is larger than the Kitsilano Ivivva store. Here is a view looking in through the doors.

Here is a view of the window. You can see the girl leaping in Ivivva clothing.

This is another picture of the window. You can see the ballerina in Ivivva and the Ivivva symbols and turquoise and purple ribbons.

IMGP8253 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

Here is another sign that says, ‘Friends are more important than money’. I think this was across the way on the Lululemon building.

This is another window pane that was on the Lululemon store.

IMGP8255 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

Here is another sign in the Ivivva window that says ‘break dance, not hearts’.

Here is a view of the window. It’s hard to get a photo with the reflection of the glass.

IMGP8257 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

This is a view of a sign and a mannequin with a grass skirt. There is definitely a tropical kind of feel in the store.

IMGP8260 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

Here is a view of some of the clothing, including a lei on one of the mannequins.

IMGP8261 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

This is the accessories section. I wish that there was that much of a selection in Lululemon for headbands! I would buy these but they are too small. I love the bright colors!

IMGP8259 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

Here is a view of the changing room area. There are beach chairs for people waiting. At this time there was a little boy waiting patiently while his sister modelled some outfits for their Mom.

IMGP8262 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

Here is a view of the pants section. It looks very similar to the way Lululemon displays their bottoms.

IMGP8263 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

This is a view of the upper part of the walls. It shows different vases. I don’t know if they are just for display or if they are for sale.

IMGP8264 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

This is a view of one of the large photo posters.

IMGP8265 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

Here is a couple of bags. I really like these, especially the colors!

IMGP8266 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

Here is their notice board. There are quite a few events going on.

IMGP8268 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

This is the social media information.

IMGP8267 Lululemon West Vancouver Park Royal Ivivva Retail Store

I have to say, I definitely think that this West Vancouver Park Royal store hits it out of the park! If I were a young girl, I would love to spend time here buying things! You should check it out!

Lululemon Earth Day 2014 Window Display at Oakridge Mall

I was just thinking the other day about how I hadn’t seen too many good window displays at Lululemon lately.

Today, I saw the Lululemon store at Oakridge Mall had made up a window celebrating Earth Day 2014, March 29th.

Here is a full view of the window. You can see the candles hanging all across all three windows.

I love it when the Lululemon stores feature original window displays like this. Has your local Lululemon store come up with any original themes?

I loved this bag when it was given out during the holidays, maybe a year or two ago. At first, I didn’t know that it was ‘om’ until somebody pointed it out. Duh! Did you get one of these bags during the holidays then?

Here is another close up of the side of the bag, but showing the English version.

Moderation, non-excess.  This yama, or yogic philosophy teaches us to recognize that moment of ‘just enough’ so we don’t move past it into uncomfortable excess. Maybe it’s by pushing away the plate of French fries or using our pent-up energy for a run. By focusing inward, we keep our bodies healthy and energetic. (And hey, there are some things we’re better off avoiding altogether). Where in your life could you practice moderation?

This bag came out early fall and caused some controversy. I was not really aware of it until I read a really angry blog post about it in October. Those complaining seem to be the same people who criticize anything and everything about Lululemon so I take what they say with a grain of salt. I asked at one of the educators at a store about it and she agreed that some people did have a problem with it.

Me, I don’t have a problem with it. Lululemon has had controversial bags before. It’s not the nicest or coolest bag I’ve ever received from them but I’ll still use it. What about you? What do you think about this bag?

Lululemon Shopping Bag on Ellen DeGeneres Show?

I was watching the Ellen DeGeneres show today and her opening monologue was about her love of bags and collecting them.

Later in the show, she whips out a bag that she is thinking of giving to her guest.

I love this bag because of the ‘poser’ on it. It is quite popular here in Vancouver and you can see people carrying it. Does anybody still have their ‘poser’ bag?
