When it comes to athleisure, some consider Lululemon the gold standard. Unfortunately, sometimes it feels like it would take Fort Knox to create an affordable outfit from the Vancouver-based brand. The Wall Street Journal once reported that Lululemon sells 95 percent of its merchandise at full price.
Since Lululemon very seldom has sales, and usually it's only on a handful of items, today feels like Black Friday all over again. Online, the "We Made Too Much" section currently has more than 590 items in it. In addition to its best-selling leggings, bras and tanks, there are marked-down rain jackets, swimming suits, hats, bags and even shoes! Here are the pieces we love that are bound to sell out. Note: shipping is free but there are no returns or exchanges on final sale pieces.
Save over 35% on this cool and comfortable tank that normally sells for $58. We love this tank because it's long enough to cover your bum and it's made of loose-fitting mesh so it's extremely lightweight and breathable. Because it's a little looser than Lululemon's other tanks, you may want to go down a size. It's currently available in seven colors and most sizes.
Originally $98, these high-rise training tights are nearly half-off! They're made of Lululemon's Everlux fabric, which wicks away sweat and dries more quickly than traditional fabrics. It's also incredibly breathable. We're a big fan of the adjustable waistband and its secure pocket for small valuables.
Don't be fooled by this dress's conventional front. It has a fun open back, which is great for ventilation, and an eye-catching diagonal hemline. But our favorite features of this dress — originally priced at $119 and currently available in five colors— are the pockets. If you're not a fan of pockets in your dresses, consider the Cinch It Dress, also $59.
Offering "high coverage," this beautiful bra is perfect for feeling confident in yoga during inversions and downward dog. The skinny back straps are a nice, feminine touch too. It's normally $58 and is currently available in all sizes. If you think $39 is still too much for a sports bra, keep in mind that this one is made of Lululemon's four-way stretch Luxtreme technical fabric which is sweat-wicking and promises to be "cool to the touch."
In one word, this long sleeve tee, marked down from $78, is essential. It's a high quality (thanks to the technical fabric) wardrobe stable that you can hike in on Sunday and wear in the office on Monday. The unique hemline is bound to bring in a compliment or two, and the thin sleeves make it easy to layer under a stylish jacket.
There are sweatpants that should never leave the house and sweatpants that are almost nice enough to wear to church. This high-rise jogger, currently about 30 percent off, is the latter. It's made of a soft modal French terry fabric that feels far more breathable than cotton. For practical reasons, the front pockets are big enough to hole an iPhone and there's even a hidden pocket for smaller items like keys or cash.
Sure, summer is almost here, but why not invest in this bomber so you're not scrambling when fall comes? Marked down from $148, this reversible jacket is an incredible value. It's super lightweight but thanks to Primaloft® insulation, it's also super warm. The fabric is even treated with DWR, so you're protected from wind and light rain. Between the three colors — mossy, copper coil and light chrome — it's currently available in most sizes.
This sports bra is meant to give you both coverage and support without the dreaded underwire. You can save almost $50 on this design, which is meant to keep you covered at all times during your medium-impact workout.
Reviewers have raved about the "awesome" feel of these sleek leggings. The engineered mesh is strategically placed in high-sweat areas for breathability. They also have a small fold-over pocket that can easily conceal a credit card or keys.
You can get this maxi dress at 50% off its original price of $98. This dress caught our eye because of its versatility — it can be worn to run errands or to brunch with friends. The piece also features a slit toward the bottom giving you the opportunity to dress it up or down while also giving you free range of motion. It is currently available in two colors and most sizes.
These high-rise tights were designed with comfort in mind. They conform to your body and move with you. They're described as feeling like a "comfortable embrace." And the best part? There's a pocket on the waistband! No more attempts to hold everything in your hands or awkwardly trying to store everything in your bra. You can just put your key or card in your waistband pocket.
This pullover sweater is great for when you want to look casual but not too casual. This sweater loosely sits below your waist and also features a back panel (so don't be surprised if you feel a breeze). You can get this piece in two different colors right now.
These tights were designed similarly to the Wunder Under High Rise Tights. They feature a form-fitting material that is meant to move with you and a pocket on the waistband for small items.
Keep yourself and your valuables dry in this rain jacket. There are zippered pockets inside and outside of the jacket, with the outside pockets holding a hidden phone sleeve. You can also cinch the waist and the hood to create the perfect fit for you.
These pants are a versatile pick for your entire day. You can dress them up with a blazer for work and change into the rest of your workout gear later on (or you can just wear them to lounge at home!).
