On Saturday I went to the Lululemon Warehouse Sale at the LA Convention Center, and I most definitely embraced the crazy! It all started when my friend Carla told me about the sale early last week. I did not think much of it but thought I would attend to see what it was all about. It was not until Friday that I discovered what a big deal this sale was. There have only been four other Lululemon warehouse sales ever, people were waiting 3-5 hours in line Friday to find a good deal, and it even had its own Twitter account with the most up-to-date information!
My day at the Lululemon Warehouse Sale went a little something like this…
5:30 a.m. Saturday morning I woke early to the sound of my alarm. Confession: I was really up at 4:00 a.m. tossing and turning because I was so excited for the sale!
5:50 a.m. My friend Danielle met me at my house. She drove all the way from San Diego. Danielle might be the only person who loves Lululemon more than me!
6:20 a.m. We arrived at the convention center only to see a line of what looked like 400 people.
7:00 a.m. Starbucks opened! Caffeine was needed for two sleepless nights!
7:30 a.m. With Starbucks in hand, Carla joined us, and the line started moving. Are they letting people in early?!
8:00 a.m. No, they just put everyone in another holding room until the doors open, but check out those prices!
8:15 a.m. Entertainment started and we are so close to the entrance to Lululemon heaven!
8:45 a.m. At last! We are in the showroom. People are running to their size rack, but there is still a ton of goodies.
9:00 a.m. My arm hurts! Do I have too many clothes?! Never!
9:15 a.m. Found the jackets and swimsuits! Triathlon training gear? Check!
9:30 a.m. Sort through all the clothes on the floor. Oh, there is a 25 item limit? I better put some of this back.
9:35 a.m. Discover the changing room, but there is a line. Who needs a changing room?! I’ll just try on the swimsuit over my clothes.
9:40 a.m. More clothes are being brought out to the racks. Time for ROUND TWO!
9:50 a.m. This is getting ridiculous, time to find Danielle and Carla to sort through everything one more time and check out!
10:00 a.m. An announcement is made, “The next 100 people in the checkout line get an extra 10% off!”
I have to say that this was one of the most organized warehouse sales I have ever been to. There were people constantly making the rounds to collect unwanted items, the racks were restocked regularly, and every employee was friendly and helpful.
Would I do it again?! Without a doubt! And I did! I went back on Sunday for even better deals. I bought so many headbands that I am giving away one to 3 of my readers. I ran 12 miles with one of these headbands on and it stayed put the entire time, so be sure to enter the giveaway below through rafflecopter.
Three lucky headband winners will be announced on Friday!
