Vancouver Warehouse Sale - The Scoop

One of my fellow lulu chat board members got to go to the warehouse sale pre-sale tonight. Here is her trip report. (It was not Lulumum since she got arm-twisted by corporate to keep quiet about what was for sale.) Thanks to Ms. X for her report.

I managed to sneak into the Lululemon Athletica (Ware)House PRE-Party. (One of my friends suddenly invited me to join her, so I went!!)

Basically, Lulu uses the half of BC Place for sale section and the other half for lineup area and the coat-check (free). I guess less than 1000 people were there tonight's pre-party, IMO. I didn't wait to get in the stadium much tonight.(Of course! Today is just PRE-Sale day..!) I waited about 15min or less for coat-check!

+Coat Check+
If you're thinking about going there this weekend, DO NOT BRING ANY BAGS and JACKETS if possible. Lulu won't allow you to bring those in to the sales section. You need to wait for a line for coat-check. Probably, I don't think it's a big problem when you check-in, have to wait for looooooooong time when you get out from the BC Place!!! I'm bit worried about this. A girl who searched my language took about 20 min to find my things... AND, there were waaaaay less than half people than actual Warehouse party....

+Price and Items+
Items I saw were mostly leftovers from this summer and fall/ winter items. The larger the size, the better the selection on bottoms. The smaller the size, the better the selection on tops/ jackets.

Love Red and Polar Cream Uba Hoodie SE (Softshell) Photos

Sherpa Fleece liner

Photos of the new Special Edition Uba Hoodie in Love Red, Polar Cream, Inkwell blue, and Black. I'm reading lots of good things about this jacket. It's made of softshell fabric that is soft and stretchy. It has stretchy arm panels to accommodate layering or your biceps. The luxchange liner is black sherpa fleece. The price is $148 but a friend tells me the original price was $178 and the tags have the little white stickers - interesting! She made a special trip to get this jacket and says it's long enough for her (she's 5'11") and felt it was wasn't super warm but heavy windbreaker that would be suitable for light rain.

More photos of the new SE Uba Hoodie in Inkwell. It's also coming in Polar Cream and Love Red. This is made of the soft shell material. It's in both US and Canadian stores. The price is $148.

Reflect LS, Pullover, Crops, Get Up and Glow and More

 Reflect Crops in Classic Stripe Mint Moment/Black paired with the solid black Reflect LS on top and Mint Moment Reflect Pullover on the bottom. I don't know if I'd say the placement of the stripes is visually slimming. To my eye, it seems to widen the hips from the front. If I find a back view of the crops I'll try to remember to post it.

New Uba Hoodie SE. This looks like Inkwell to me. No word on price yet.

The earbud cord hole is a nice feature

 Reflect Crop in the Spring Multi print with a Shell Pink Swiftly and the black Reflect Pullover. I really like this combo.

Not a fan of this combo but the Polar Haze Sea Stripe U-Turn and Reflect Crops in the Spring Multi Print.
