Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015

Here are some photos of the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store this year. This year, they opened the store for the runners from 7 AM to 9:30 AM (exclusive runner shop) and then they allowed the general public in.

I think the store was the same size that it was last year.

I got to see the store the day before and it had a pretty good inventory. I was really looking forward to getting some pieces! I already had a mental picture of where I had to go first to grab them!

I decided to head down at midnight. I really thought that I would be one of the first people in line but that was definitely not the case! I was around number 115 at midnight! I heard that people started lining up at the showcase store at 7 PM the previous night! The store wasn’t going to open until 7 AM. By the time it opened, there were so many people in line and it wrapped around the huge convention center!

There were definitely determined and practical shoppers who brought chairs, blankets, pillow, an air mattress, a tent and sleeping bags. I brought a collapsible chair with a foot rest, knowing that I’d be sleeping.

Some of the shoppers in line were really excited. One girl brought balloons and played a game where each person had a balloon attached and they’d crash against each other until the balloons broke. Unfortunately, when the balloons burst, they were really noisy and even sounded like gunfire! The girl obviously didn’t realize that there are lots of high-rise condos that didn’t appreciate the raucous Lululemon revelers in the middle of the night.

People lined up soon after me.

Eventually, we were let in the convention center to another lines up. At least it was warmer inside and we were excited about the thought of going inside soon. I was so cold waiting those seven hours!

We were treated to acro yoga again this year while we waited in line. This pair is incredible!

Finally, at 7 AM, they let us, the first group in. We had been waiting anywhere from twelve hours to five hours. I had waited seven hours. I ran in straight for the bag that I wanted! Everybody else started grabbing things. The set up was very similar to previous years. I quickly accumulated 15 items but held on to them for dear life. People were eyeing others’ piles for the right size or item! Many people asked me if I was going to keep all of my things!

I took pictures of most everything. Since I was the first group in, I think I got most of it with the exception of a few. However, it was quite dark in there and I didn’t want to use a flash and bother people. So here is what I found and apologies to the picture quality, but you get the idea.IMGP4613 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4614 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4615 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4616 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4617 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4645 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015IMGP4646 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2015

There was not much at all in the mens section. I felt so sorry for the guys, some of them were really disappointed.

I’m sure that I’ll see a lot of the Seawheeze special edition items at the race tomorrow! Check out the photos of the runners online on social media and you’ll be able to see them, too!

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Retail Store Opening Day Friday 2013 Part Two

This is part two of the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Retail Store opening from yesterday, Friday.

Here are some photos of the floor and all the shopping frenzy. Actually, it wasn’t too bad because it was two hours after the doors opened.

Line up for the cash registers. Odd thing, a lot of American customers were getting their credit cards declined because they hadn’t let their credit card company know that they were in Vancouver and might be running up a large tab at the Seawheeze! There were announcements warning the customers about this.

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Retail Store Set Up Preview 2013

Today is the day before the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Retail Store opens!

It takes a lot of planning, organization and work to set up the store. This area at the convention center is huge! And by tomorrow, the room will encompass the package pick up, chip checker and retail store, among other things. Will this be the largest Lululemon pop up store ever?

Here are a few photos from the set up today.
