Lululemon Warehouse Haul!

So this year Lululemon had their Canadian warehouse sale in Ottawa, which was really lucky for me! The sale started yesterday morning (Friday January 20th, 2012) at 9am, and the line-ups started at 7am! I just couldn't get myself out of bed that early so I went today around 11am, a bit more reasonable! :)

By the time I got there, the initial line-ups took about an hour and a half, to get into the sale. There was fun, dance music to keep everyone upbeat, as well as gymnastics routines and a trampoline show. The line actually seemed to move pretty quickly! You had to coat check everything that you had on you (coat, purse, etc.) and you could only bring in your wallet. Davids Tea was there, giving out various tea samples while you waited in line. I'm not a tea drinker, but it did smell really good!

Line up to get into the sale!

Inside the sale, everything was organized by sizes, on racks. The staff were all really friendly and upbeat, which made the day really fun! I wasn't able to find any Astro or Groove pants in my size, which was sort of disappointing. But I did leave with two pairs of pants, and a pair of shorts! There were a ton of Still Pants, but I didn't like the wide leg of them. Pants were on sale for $55, which is almost half price!  Shorts were $29, which is a great deal. Scuba hoodies were $79, which still seems really expensive for a hoodie to me, but it is a great sale compared to the regular retail price. By the time that I got there, I couldn't find any bags or headbands, which I know a lot of people were upset about.

Inside the sale! 

Here's what I got!

These are actually black, I don't know why they're showing up as grey!
They took all of the tags off at the cash, so I can't really remember what style these are! If anyone has an idea, let me know!

I love these! The Relaxed Fit Pant cinches at the ankle, which is great so that
 you can fit them into your winter boots. :) 

These are the Studio Pant II, again in black, not grey! These are so comfy!

I was in and out of the sale in about 3 and a half hours, which I think was pretty good! I took my time looking around, and I had a lot of fun. I do wish that I could have found a pair of groove or astro pants, but oh well! Oh, as I was walking out, I was given a free scarf! 

Cheer Me On Scarf
This was originally $28, and it's really soft and warm, so it was great to get it for free!

Have you been to a Lululemon warehouse sale before? Or were you able to go to the one this weekend? I would love to know what you picked up! The sale is still on tomorrow (Sunday January 22nd) from 9am-9pm at the CE Centre if you wanted to stop by!


  1. I'm glad that you had a fun time! :D I like how they had tea!!

    Wow, it is nice to see another nail polish blogger from Ottawa!

    1. Ya the tea was a nice touch! :) Are you from Ottawa as well?

    2. Wow, I've been a follower of both your blogs for a while, and I had no idea you were from Ottawa! (Which is where I live, too.) It's nice to know I;m not the only polish addict in the city :)

      Sadly, I didn't hear about the warehouse sale until it was too late, but I'm glad you liked it!

    3. It's great to meet you! (even if only virtually!)
      I'll be sure to post about other exciting events going on in the city so that you don't miss out on anything :)
