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.

Here is a close up view of the middle of the window inside the large white omega Lululemon. The sign says, ‘lights off, glow green, earth hour march 29th’.

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

One Last 2014 Winter Olympics Post

Today, Canada’s mens ice hockey team won the gold medal! The game had started at 4 AM Vancouver time and by 6:20 AM, we had won our game!

In celebration of our victory, I took all of my Canadian gear, including some Lululemon cheer gear from Vancouver’s 2010 Winter Olympics!

After the free yoga class at Oakridge Lululemon, I got my fellow yogis to gear up and took some photos! Lots of Canadian pride today!

Can you spot the red and white cheer gear scarf and then the blue and yellow cheer gear scarf (for Sweden)? Somebody is also wearing the red Lululemon hockey helmet!

Lots of fun!

Lululemon Free Yoga Sunday Class Oakridge Centre in Vancouver

Lululemon offers free yoga classes on Sunday mornings at a few stores across Vancouver. I have gone to the Robson Street and West 4th stores at one point or another. However, my favorite store for yoga classes has been at the Oakridge Centre Mall store on Sunday mornings. I’ve been going there for over five years.

Here are some photos from the last two classes.

Oksana is a regular instructor.

I brought Xmas hats to take our annual holiday photo. John, who works at Lululemon is in the red running shoes. He’s been in charge of our Sunday classes for a long time.

Further to the Too Sheer Lululemon Yoga Pants Issue-Alternatives!

This morning I did my usual, ran to my favorite Lululemon store to take the complimentary yoga class. I love that Lululemon gives back to the community by holding these complimentary events. I’ve been going to them for over four years now!

After class, I chatted with some people and they agreed that the sheer yoga pants issue was a non-issue, something totally blown out of proportion.

We laughed at the suggestions media had made that we would abandon Lululemon and head to Nike or Adidas. Seriously? Oh, ye have little faith. Nobody I have talked to (and yes, admittedly, it is a small sample) is going to leave Lululemon anytime soon.

We applaud the way that Lululemon has reacted to the problem. They faced up to the concerns and have taken action to fix them.

I’ve always loved their display windows and today they were creating a new one, partly inspired by Jimmy Kimmel’s public service announcement for Lululemon and their yoga pant shortage…check out these pics! Love those green bubble wrap yoga pants! Who wouldn’t love those tin foil yoga pants!? I’m looking forward to seeing the completed windows next yoga class!
