My name is Lisa…and I’m addicted to Lululemon.
The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, as they say. So, I decided to pull out my Lululemon collection, and face it. Let me explain why…
A little while ago, the boy was looking for something and came across my Lululemon shopping bag stash. He lost count at 82… *gulp*… he was so shocked, he called me at work to tell me about his discovery.
What could I say?
I have a problem: I love Lulu. Is that really such a bad thing?
Men will never understand a woman’s love of all things Lulu. My good friend, Ang, has a collection of Scuba Hoodies. When I say “collection”, I mean, she has likely bought every colour combo the wonderous workers at Lululemon could dream up. To put that into perspective for those out of the Lulu-loop, a single, regular, plain old Scuba Hoodie costs (on average) $105. The price goes up if it’s a limited edition.
Everyone has their gym motivation. For me, it’s a new Lululemon piece. The smell of the new luon fabric, the cool feel of the material, the comfort when you slip into Lululemon wear… I’m ADDICTED! And I’m not alone by any means. I found a few Facebook groups, which are basically groups of enablers – places to swap, shop, share, and discuss all things Lululemon.
Thursdays are like Saturdays in the Lululemon realm. That’s when new lines are released, and older stuff goes on sale online. At precisely 11am the messages fly on Lululemon facebook pages, the buying begins online, and hot items sell out immediately. Everyone pretty much knows what’s coming, because there are a lot of “inside traders” that “leak” information out to Lulu lovers well in advance. It’s worth just sitting back and watching for some entertainment. I thought I was bad… there are some that have it worse. And that’s comforting to know.
What’s your gym motivation? Please leave comments below… that’s how great discussions are started! 🙂
