BIG news, Lululemon lovers: The folks over at Lululemon just gave us some sweet details on the new store they’re bringing to Philly. And this isn’t just any ol’ Lululemon store. This store — which will be opening at Fishtown’s 1424-32 Frankford Avenue, right next door to the soon-to-open City Fitness — will be the fourth of their Lululemon ‘Local’ concept stores in the country.
Guys, the folks over at Lululemon Walnut Street have been cooking up something really good for you. Like, reeeeeeeallllly good.
Okay, okay, enough with the suspense. Here’s the deal: Lululemon’s Walnut Street store is getting in on the race game — but it’s not your typical race. The store has teamed up with run-tracking social network Strava and Silverline Athletics to put on an epic seven-day virtual 8K race along the Schuylkill River Trail. The name? The Ghost Race.
Oh! And it’s totally free to join in on. Sweet, right?

• Sorrel: If you’ve never loaded a bunch of this leafy green into your grocery cart, you’re not alone. But you should probably start: One cup of this lemony leaf has 4 grams of fiber, three grams of protein and more potassium than a banana, blowing spinach, my personal pick for salads, out of the water.

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]
