Just a suggestion: reversible pants


Yoga and consumerism should be inherently at odds so I can only say: Lululemon pants make your butt look great. Not just yours, mine too. Everyone's. Some styles are reversible so it's like getting 2 pants in 1. And the moisture-wicking fabric makes hot yoga classes a happier place. Ok, now you can make up your own mind over whether or not it's worth it to drop bank on this stuff. You can continue to practice in a tweety bird t-shirt and your husband's sweatpants that shrunk in the dryer. I still do that too. It's a yoga mat, not a runway. But did I mention that Lulu will hem your pants for free? And that they sell lots of stuff suitable to athletics of all kinds, for men and women?


The Toronto-based company just opened a great big location in downtown Boston. And I (along with some other friends from South Boston Yoga) helped kick off their opening weekend with some window yoga. It was pretty fun, although the space was tight and I banged into the glass more than once. Also caught quite a bit of attention from shoppers passing by...the comments were pretty interesting to listen to: The excited "Whoa, cool!", the bitter "Now that's not yoga, that's just showing off" and the interested "I could probably do that." For me, it was just pretty hilarious to try and keep focused with people's noses pressed up to the glass.

Interesting! I like the idea of them using live models to show off their clothing line. I bet that WOULD be a bit nerve wracking to be on display like that, though. :)

That's pretty awesome that you got to show off your stuff...what a fun opportunity!

I don't care what kind of recession we are in - their pants are a godsend! I hope you snagged some free goodies out of your performance. :)

"For me, it was just pretty hilarious to try and keep focused with people's noses pressed up to the glass." I'm sure it was! I don't think I could ever do it. :)

That's awesome. What fun! I would have definitely cracked up at some of the comments. :) You mentioned hot yoga and I'm planning to try my first class on Thurs. Can't wait to give it a go.

zandria--it sure was! i'm glad i couldn't hear people, though my husband was outside taking pictures and listening :-)

jenn--yeah, it was fun! i think they do this at every store opening.

culinarywannabe--i see i'm not the only believer! i did get a free shirt, which is a nice deal for 1 hour in the window.

amy--i considered 'boyfriend' but ultimately rejected it in favor of a slightly older mindset. being a grownup is weird.

vered--i definitely lost my focus a number of times...

Lori--that's awesome! let me know how you like the hot yoga! some classes are hot (like, 85 degrees) and some are HOT (like 97 degrees). Good luck!

Happy Herbivore--I should get a commission I think...if you do get 'em be sure to let us know how you like them!

I was so excited/scared to hear that they finally opened a lululemon in the Prudential Center...I am totally addicted!

I absolutely love the picture of you doing the window demos. They make me laugh but in a very kind I am proud of you/anyone for getting out there and doing that way.
