Last year was the first year we’ve ever seen Lululemon run Black Friday sale on their website (we’ve been tracking then ever since 2014). And almost instantly, as news spread about the deals, so many people came to their site that their servers kept crashing making almost impossible to checkout for about half the day on Thanksgiving. It was quite a disaster. We have our fingers crossed that this year will be better.
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 had 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).
What are you planning on picking up this Thanksgiving weekend at Lululemon? Let us know in the comments section (you’ll find the comments section located at the bottom of this page).
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!
Here are some screenshots taken of our favorite items:
Updated on Friday, November 24, 2017: As we suspected, there’s no “Black Friday sale” this year on Lululemon’s active sportswear (at least not on their site anyway).
Like in year’s past, Lululemon doesn’t typically run any Black Friday-specific promotions. However you can still pick up something if you’re lucky on their clearance rack in stores or online (look for the “we made too much” section). We’ve posted a few screen shots below of what’s now available there — Check it out!
With that said, just about everyone else is running Black Friday sales this Thanksgiving weekend. You can see our full list of stores on our homepage. Have a nice Thanksgiving weekend and good luck bargain hunting!
You probably know by now that Lululemon is not a store that has follows the price slashing trend as most other clothing retailers tend to do. In fact, the the only bargains likely to be had are on their clearance rack which is usually pretty bare, especially in the most common sizes.
What they lack in sales, they make up for in their new “Black Friday” releases. This year it’s an eight-piece capsule collection in, well, mostly black. It’s made from their top of the line breathable 360-degree high-impact reflectivity fabric and will be available for a limited time both in-stores and online starting Friday November 27th. Prices range from $38.00 ear warmers all the way up to nearly $300.00 jogging tights. We’ve included some of the images of what you’ll be able to get down below.
While all other stores use the Thanksgiving weekend to slash prices on their merchandise to sell as much volume as they can, Lululemon has taken the approach of releasing a limited-edition holiday collection to entice their (female) customers on Black Friday. You’ll be able to pick up any one of the 10 different speckled print pieces from just $42.00 for the short-shorts all the way up to $148.00 for a matching jacket.
There are no new sale items added for the weekend outside of the few pieces you can find on the clearance racks in-store. You’re best bet is always to try the sale section on lululemon.com for some of the best deals for today and year round.
Here a look at the glittery holiday collection for 2014:
