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

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store 2014

Here are some photos of what was left of the Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon Showcase Store this year.

This store was supposed to be over 22,000 square feet. It did seem bigger than 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 heard that people started lining up at the showcase store at 3 AM. The store opened at 7 AM. By the time it opened, there were so many people in line!

I didn’t get to the store until after my volunteer shifts (where we were run off our feet with all of the runners picking up their race packages), volunteering setting up the nooner yoga, and finally, doing the nooner yoga.

By the time I got there, it had been really picked over. I couldn’t believe how fast the inventory went. Needless to say, everything that I had my eye on, was long gone.

The biggest complaint? The store was open to the public, so runners who chose to pick up their race package would have to wait in line again. Somebody spotted an eBay ad selling Seawheeze items at 9:30! I really agree with the runners, that they should have gotten first pick. After all, many of them had paid for the entry, airline, hotels, restaurants, etc. The least Lululemon could have done was give them a little consideration.

I wish I could have been able to take pictures of the items that were sold out by the time I got there. There was some cute stuff. But, it was gone within the first hour of the sale.

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!
