Our Story

History

OUR VISION


Founded by Chip Wilson in Vancouver, Canada in 1998, lululemon is a yoga-inspired, technical athletic apparel company for women and men. What started as a design studio by day and yoga studio by night soon became a standalone store in November of 2000 on West 4th Avenue in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood.
Our vision for our store was to create more than a place where people could get gear to sweat in, we wanted to create a community hub where people could learn and discuss the physical aspects of healthy living, mindfulness and living a life of possibility. It was also important for us to create real relationships with our guests and understand what they were passionate about, how they liked to sweat and help them celebrate their goals. Today, we do this in our stores around the globe.

OUR PRODUCT


Our first designs were made for women to wear during yoga. Through plenty of feedback from our guests, ambassadors and elite athletes, we now design for yoga, running, cycling, training and most other sweaty pursuits for women and men. Not to mention, our designers are athletes and sweat-minded people, too.

OUR BEST LIFE


A constant that has never wavered is our desire to empower people to reach their full potential through providing the right tools and resources, and encouraging a culture of leadership, goal setting and personal responsibility. Our core values of personal responsibility, entrepreneurship, honesty, courage, connection, fun, and inclusion are lived by our people every day and are at the heart of our unique company culture.
We live a life we love. We set our goals to align with our vision, and it’s why, so often, our one-year goals become today’s reality.


Manifesto


Our manifesto is one way we share our culture with the community. It’s an evolving collection of bold thoughts that allow for some real conversations to take place. Get to know our manifesto and learn more about what lights our fire.



Strategic Sales


At lululemon, we’ve made it our vision to elevate the world from mediocrity to greatness. To do this, we need to partner with great people.


Our Strategic Sales pair with local entrepreneurs and athletes who are passionate about elevating their communities; our goal is to focus on quality partnerships over quantity. Our partners are people who get up every morning for something bigger than themselves and inspire others with their enthusiasm and achievements.
Under the Strategic Sales umbrella, there are three programs designed to spread the yoga love and help raise the level of health in our communities:
