Yoga aficionados and aficionados and gym junkies, I hope you’re as excited as we are with the opening of lululemon’s first flagship store in Asia and they’ve chosen Singapore to be the first destination!
We’ve been hearing rumors and seeing the sign – okay, we didn’t really see the sign – we walked past the lululemon store at ION Orchard when it was still under construction. 🙂
Natasha was beyond excited when she got an invitation to take a peek at the 3,700 square feet store, which only officially opens tomorrow. Yes, TOMORROW! Let us warn you, though, Orchard isn’t looking too pretty at the moment with all the last minute Christmas shoppers (no, not us, we’re not one of them. Really!). Natasha’s first encounter with lululemon was a few years back in Melbourne, and Carmen first saw the lululemon store in Sydney. And after we tried on their signature black stretch leggings, we never looked back since.
With aggressive store expansion across Asia – Hong Kong is next on the list – we’re super proud that lululemon chose Singapore to be its first in Asia. lululemon has chosen Singapore as the location for its first store in Asia because of the strong support from the local community. Remember the yoga beat event on Orchard Road held last month? We’ve never seen so many people doing the warrior pose on Orchard Road! The great success showed just how much interest Singaporeans have towards yoga and wellbeing in general. Go Singapore!
Pricewise, it’s definitely not cheap but trust us, their clothes last for ages! the black leggings have been tried and tested. And after numerous downward dogs, gym sessions and countless spins in the washing machine, it still keeps its shape.
We love their sports bra as well, and these are some of Natasha’s favorites:
Gorgeous, right? And these are the legging options currently in store. We’re digging the mesh black ones. They have men’s collection as well, but they’ll only be revealed for the first time tomorrow.
If getting fit is part of your New Year’s resolution, you can start by heading over the lululemon store tomorrow and buy a kickass exercise ensemble. If you’re going to be active and sweaty – be it at the gym, Botanic Gardens or yoga studio – the least you can do is sweat in style! 🙂
ION Orchard Singapore, #B1-11.
