Lulu Warriors: Just 14 More Days!

April 1, 2009 | By | Comments (0)

It's no secret that I'm a die-hard fan of the workout clothes from the cheeky, uber-friendly Lululemon. I've sung their virtues several times on this blog and my obsession remains firmly in place. Seriously, I have to restrain myself from breaking the bank when I pass by the store—and I wear their gear for more than just working out. It's pretty much my uniform on the weekends and while walking the dog.

But it's always been annoying that you can't shop online for their stuff—and even though stores are popping up all over, there are plenty of cities where Lulu has yet to land. So I was extra excited when I read that starting today, April 1st, they'd be opening their online store so you could "Shop Nude."

But I guess we've all been punked on this first day of April because when I surfed over today to the site, and clicked on the "shop now" button I was directed to what is clearly an April Fool's Joke. (The site is blindingly hideous, and the product write-ups are pretty insane, to put it kindly.)

Anyways, the REAL online shopping begins on April 15th, so get ready to be able to order their actually-worth-every-penny yoga pants from the comfort of your living room. The only downside: the free hemming you can get in-store isn't available online.

By the way, you may recall last year's April Fool's Joke: The introduction of the "Mansy", a one-piece unitard for men. Think Borat deep in a warrior pose. Here's the visual.

Well, I do love a company with a sense of humor so well-played, Lululemon! But now just bring me the online shopping, stat!
