Run Skirt ALERT

Postby lovethehills » Wed Aug 24, 2005 6:15 am

I know this should be in the "gearing up" section, but I wanted everyone to see it asap.

lululemon has the run skirt in their stores. I bought one yesterday, ran in it last night and absolutely LOVED it!! It's $45.00, not too bad, the same as a good pair of running shorts.

In a related matter, see the classifieds...

Happy Shopping!

Ooooh, Lulu. The only store that makes pants that *flatter* one's behind. My team's uniform pants are from Lulu.

How long (or short) are the running skirts?

Must...go...to...Lululemon...but...have...no...money....dilemma....

sorry to sound clueless, but is that a brand name, or a store? if it's a store, i haven't heard of them here. but i'd really like a running skirt!

It is a store that manufactures their own brand and style of clothing. It started in Vancouver, but has expanded quite a bit. They do sell through other stores.

As Cheermidget mentioned, they are particularly known for their butt flattering yoga pants. :)

YAAAAAYYYY!!! I'm going to pick one up tomorrow. I was going to reward my speed efforts with a trip to Queen West anyway! That's not a bad price at all, especially considering the skirtsports ones were like $90 Canadian.

Ah, the short flared skirt scenario.

Just so you know Jacob, the running skirts come with shorts underneath, so the situation you describe likely wouldn't happen. :wink:

I can't bear to pigeonhole myself... :)
Truth be told I DO shop a lot, but I don't really buy a lot of stuff (for myself that is). I am totally happy spending an entire day "just looking", which is probably what I'll do tomorrow except for the skirt! It's been a bit outta control lately though because: It's summer and I'm not at work every day; I live on Queen St. so I step out my door and there's stuff to look at; I've been to Chicago, which totally stimulated my shopping bug; I've had a ton of birthday and bridal presents to buy this summer.

QuickChick: Queens street has sent theirs to another store because they don't think they have enough of a "running population" to sell them. Head to Bloor street if you can.

Don't ask how I know all of this!!

In actual fact, I am a semi-shopaholic. When I find something great, I want to tell everyone!! I'm a FREAK, but who cares really!

I LOVE Lululemon gear. Kind of pricey, but so worth it. I have a few pieces of their clothing and the quality, style and comfort is awesome!

A few months ago I attended a focus group at Lululemon for runners. It sounded like they were looking to add more running gear to their line-up.

They also gave me a $100 Lulu gift card for attending (cha-ching!) 8)

hahaha, I didn't even THINK of that! I'd be mortified if something like that happened while I was running. Actually, I'd probably start laughing...

Rest easy Jacob, they have little shorts underneath in case there's a gust of wind :wink:

She's on Clyde Street I think. Super nice.

Runlikeagirl, that's SO funny. I was asked to attend a design meeting in the spring and that's how all this came about! The gift card is a nice touch!

What a coincidence. I was at a design meeting in March at the Yonge and Eglinton Store.

My interest in Lululemon occurred when I went to their warehouse sale downtown in Feb, I think. It was lulu heaven.

I GOT MY SKIRT!!!! They don't have them in Yorkdale at Lululemon, but they did at Yonge/Eglington. I got a black one and it's PERFECT! :D

I don't think I am going to get one. I would have to start shaving my legs... who has that kind of time.

But if it goes with Angela's betty top.... Hmmm, i wonder
