The really sad thing about today is that I already know it’s not going to be as good as yesterday, because yesterday, my morning started off bright and early (er, well, dark and early, actually) with candlelight sunrise yoga at Lululemon’s gorgeous, brand spankin’ new Walnut Street store. For our very first Be Well Philly Underground event of the year, we teamed up with Lululemon Walnut Street, along with Stripp’d Juice and Pure Fare for a morning that was kind of unbeatable.

Now, don’t get me wrong: I love my Lululemon leggings like most people love their firstborn child. And unlike most of my clothes, I actually try my best to take really good care of them — but they aren’t my favorite thing from the fitness store, otherwise known as Mecca for the yoga-obsessed and shopping-obsessed women (and some men!) of the world. My favorite thing isn’t even my Lululemon yoga mat, which is so magnificently light, I’m astounded every time I carry it to work. This, my friends, is my favorite item: The free small bag they give you with your purchase. Seriously. Read more »
The time has come: Time for Lululemon Walnut Street to open the doors to their new digs at 1720 Walnut Street, just a few steps away from Rittenhouse Square (and dangerously close to the Philly Mag offices). The new Lululemon store opens at 10 a.m. today, and there’s no shortage of fun for folks to experience throughout opening week, from free yoga to a love-letter-writing workshop of sorts (intrigued?). The fun starts today with a DJ on deck and — wait for it — free Saxbys coffee and hot chocolate for shoppers throughout the morning. Because shopping just isn’t as fun when your fingers are numb and your lips are frozen shut, right? Read more »
Lululemon Walnut Street had a rough year, what with their roof collapsing and then the store getting burglarized post-roof collapse (rude), then being in a temporary location just a hop, skip and a throw away from their old location since March of this year. But it’s almost a new year, and it seems things are looking up: As assistant manager Katlin Davies tells us, they are set to move in to their brand new, permanent digs at 1720 Walnut Street and open their doors for business come January — Tuesday, January 12th, to be exact.

Kate Hudson’s activewear line Fabletics — which just opened one of its first brick-and-mortar stores in Newark, Delaware in October — seems to be taking some jabs at Lululemon, namely the brand’s price points and that old see-through leggings incident, in its latest commercials. Read more »
• For all our Lululemon addicts out there, the brand has a limited-edition Black Friday collection, available online and in stores the day after Thanksgiving. Just be warned: Unlike most Black Friday goods, the stuff doesn’t come cheap. A pair of reflective running leggings will run you nearly 300 bucks. [POPSUGAR Fitness]
As some of you might remember, we were pretty bummed when we heard Lululemon wouldn’t be bringing Wanderlust in the City to Philly this year. But consider our tears dried: The Lululemon Walnut Street store is hosting a new yoga-filled fest called Revival this October — and it sounds ah-mazing.

As some of you probably remember, back in January, there was a crazy accident at the Lululemon store on Walnut Street — loose bricks from a neighboring building crashed through the roof of the store — and since then, they’ve been in a temporary location at 1422 Walnut Street. But it looks like they’ll soon have a forever home: Our friends over on Property just clued us in to the news that the store will be opening up shop at 1720 Walnut Street, right by Rittenhouse Square (and so dangerously close to the Philly Mag offices).
It’s fitting that Lululemon, a store specializing in yoga gear and athletic apparel, has exhibited some serious flexibility when it comes to their recent brick-and-mortar troubles. Debris from an adjacent building crashed through the store’s roof at 1527 Walnut Street in late January, causing the company with a near cult-like following to move to a temporary spot down the street at 1422 Walnut. Now, it looks as though the company is headin’ on up to the ritzy part of town.
Jacob Cooper, partner at MSC Retail, tells Property that Lululemon will take over the storefront at 1720 Walnut Street, a former Cosi just steps from Rittenhouse Square. Brittany Goldberg from MSC Retail and Ken Bleznak from Atlantic Real Estate Group handled the transaction. A representative from Lululemon was unavailable for comment at the time of publication, so it’s unclear when the store will be open for business.
