Last year was the first year we’ve ever seen Lululemon run Black Friday sale on their website (we’ve been tracking them ever since 2014). And almost instantly, as news spread, so many people came to their site that their servers kept crashing. That made it nearly impossible to checkout for about half the day on Thanksgiving day itself. It was quite a disaster. We have our fingers crossed that this year will be better.
What to expect on Black Friday.
So what’s coming? It’s still too early to know but our team is keeping a close eye on them and we will be posting their sale details right here on this page the moment we know more (if you’re joined to our newsletter then we’ll also email you once the sale is announced). To get an idea of the types of discounts they offered last year you can scroll down the page to see some of the screen shots we took last Black Friday (some items were up to 50% off).
Expected Black Friday start & end times.
Following last year’s time schedule, here are our Lululemon Black Friday sale predictions for 2019:
- Start time, online: Thursday (Thanksgiving day) November 28, 2019.
- End time, online: Monday (Cyber Monday) December 2, 2019.
- Start & end time, in-stores: As far as we are aware, Lululemon’s Black Friday sale was offered exclusively online. It’s possible some stores may also have specials but this may vary by store and location. The selection will also be limited in-stores.
If this year’s Black Friday sale mirrors the one from last year, then the sale will only be limited to select pre-determined merchandise. That means anything other than what’s offered, often including items from their newest Fall/Winter 2019 collections. Things like gift cards are never on sale. We’re also expecting the sale to only be offered for customers based in the United States.
Lululemon did not provide a a copy of their terms and conditions on their site for last year’s sale so it’s difficult for us to say of there are any specific exclusions or limitations that you need to be aware of.
What’s Hot This Season?
Lululemon’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection is here and we have our favorites! Here are some of the new arrivals you can keep an eye out for during your Black Friday shopping this year:
Cloudscape Wrap Short: There’s nothing better than wrapping yourself with a soft and puffy down-filled jacket on a chilly winter day. And not to worry if you get caught in a rain or snow storm, the seams are sealed and the entire outer shell is waterproof. Just pull the hood over your head and you’re good to go. The jacket is available in either Vintage Taupe or Burnt Umber colors and retails for $298.
Wunder Under High-Rise Tight: These tights are made to conform right on your body like a second layer of skin. So flexible and soft that you’ll forget you’re wearing anything at all. These are versatile pants that are good for palates, yoga or working out at the gym. There are two colors to choose from, either Washed Luna (as shown) or Washed Moon Blue, and normally retail for $118.
Energy Bra: Available in 15 different colors, this sports bra is made with both Luxtreme and Lycra for maximum breathability and flexibility regardless if you’re running or working out. Best of all, it retains its shape over time, contouring to your unique build. You also have the option to use the removable cups for extra coverage. It’s offered in sizes 2-14 and retails for $52.

Updated on Thursday November 22, 2018: We were’t expecting this, given that we’ve never seen Lululemon run a Black Friday sale on their site. EVER! But it looks like this year is an exception!
You can can already shop lululemon.com for a number of discounted Black Friday apparel for women, men and girls (assuming the site loads for you… we keep getting errors, probably because of traffic overload). There’s a lot of the stuff on sale, it just seems like most of it is “final sale” so you won’t be able to return or exchange anything if the sizing turns out off. So shop wisely!
