I know what you’re thinking…  lululemon? Sale? NY? In the same sentence?? Really??

YES. While the boys are throwing around a pigskin on the field, lululemon encourages you to create strategies for luon and luxtreme (technical workout fabrics) at the warehouse! #superYOGABOWL #FUN #3DAYS

LULULEMON WAREHOUSE LAYOUT:

The warehouse team has done a phenomenal job organizing all of the product that was shipped from stores in the area. Everything is sectioned and organized by size & category (in order of layout appearance):

  • Entrance By Flagpoles (tweet @lululemonWHUS for line time estimates)
  • Bag & Coat Drop-Off  (Optional)
  • Mens 
  • Womens
  • Ivviva (product for little girls)!
  • Accessories
  • Cash

(the line to get in by the warehouse doors)

(layout of the floor in size order)

(cash area) PERKS & RESTRICTIONS:

  • Entertainment: Ambassadors and instructors from the area were invited to demo during the event (personally, I was on a mission to go through the product and missed the showcases)
  • DJ & MC! Music is played throughout the event as well as an MC  to liven up the party!
  • Freebies: Vinyasa scarves were randomly shot into the air with t-shirt cannons
  • Item Limit: 20 lululemon Items & 20 ivivva Items (however this is subject to change in your favor)! Try everything, then choose strategically!
