Although I only own one piece of Lululemon apparel, and that's from a Vancouver Turkey Trot that I signed up for, but didn't participate in (OK, it was pouring down rain, and I took photos instead), I've always been intrigued by this line of apparel. Lululemon Athletic was founded in Vancouver in 1998. It shared its first retail space with a yoga studio. Today, the little company that could has more than 100 stores across Canada, the US, Australia and Hong Kong.
Their technical yoga clothes and apparel are a big hit in New York City, too. It was fun reading about the BC based company in New York magazine. The article, cleverly titled Lust for Lulu, garnered plenty of comments in the online edition. Click here to read it.
Sue Frause is an American writer and photographer. She's had a major crush on Canada ever since she visited British Columbia as a young girl. Even if your heart doesn't pitter patter over all things Canadian, read on. You'll find photos, travel tips, road notes and the latest news and thoughts about our friends north of the 49th parallel. Cool idea, eh?
