Yesterday my sister and I hit up Lululemon (Walnut Street) in Philly. I had gotten her a gift card for her birthday (she did the same for my birthday) so I was ready to spend and get some items off my wish list! I really wanted to try their running shorts since I heard great reviews about them (hello back pocket). I also needed to stock up on more tanks. Their stuff is pricey but you can’t beat the quality, especially when you spend many hours a week running.
I immediately eliminated the Run: Speed Short since it was a tad too revealing. Next up was the Run: Willpower Short. Ahh, love. Perfect length and not too tight or too loose. I’m wearing it with the Power Y Tank (which I also loved).
Next was the Turbo Run Short. The length was great but I didn’t like the way it pulled across the front of my thighs. Also, the little undies underneath gave me a bit of a wedgie (sorry but I’m doing full disclosure here). I’m wearing the Cool Racerback tank in this picture.
Last was Run: The Fastest Short. I didn’t like these just because of the length – too long.
So I left the store with the Willpower shorts, a Power Y tank, and a Cool Racerback tank. Lulu love 🙂
The best thing though happened at the register! I asked the cashier if they were still looking for ambassadors for the Philly store (I have been meaning to submit an ambassador application for awhile now). She asked if I was a group fitness instructor and I said “no, I’m a runner and running coach”. She then enters me in their system so I can get a 15% R&D discount!!!!!!! This discount is for instructors and, as she put it, “you’re out doing what you love while wearing Lululemon clothes”. I can get this discount every time too (which may be bad for my wallet). What a company! Just one more reason to love them!
Are you a Lululemon fan? If so, what are your favorite items?
