Cult favourite activewear brand Lululemon don’t drop prices on their best-selling tights, sports bras and accessories too often – but we’ve researched the best deals they’ll be offering on Black Friday to save you some money while you stock up on fitness gear.
Options for activewear have really taken off in recent years. More and more brands have really leaned into the athleisure trend to give us all the stylish and comfy fitness gear we deserve, to take us from exercise to brunch and everywhere in between.
And when it comes to activewear that’s at the ultimate intersection of style and comfort, one of the biggest names in the biz has to be Lululemon. Established in 1998, the brand has become a cult favourite for people of all genders – whether they’re yogis, runners, or pretty much anyone looking for the perfect pair of leggings.
As great as Lululemon is, their high quality brand and growing commitment to sustainability and ethical social practices means that prices don’t come on the cheap side. Luckily though, they don’t mess around when it comes to the Black Friday sales. We’ve scoped out the top deals on offer at Lululemon this Black Friday, so all you need to do when the date rolls around is hit “add to cart”.
When is Black Friday?
Black Friday will be on Friday, November 27 in 2020.
It takes place each year on the day after the American holiday of Thanksgiving, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. Black Friday is a shopping event that sees retailers provide huge discounts on a wide range of goods and services like clothes and activewear, shoes, tech, beauty and more.
What to expect from Lululemon Black Friday deals
On Black Friday, Lululemon definitely go all out on the deals – so it’s certainly a date to take note of and avoid missing!
To give you an idea of what to expect this year, we scoped out some of the top offers from Black Fridays gone by. In 2019 for example, Lulu offered nearly 50 percent off on new arrivals and staple best-sellers – which is a pretty impressive deal. Those discounts included a wide range of apparel – from sports bras, to puffer jackets, leisure wear, tanks and more. This year, we’re looking forward to similarly great offers from the iconic activewear brand.
What deals should you look out for?
Lululemon haven’t revealed the specific offers that will be made available for Black Friday, but that’s pretty normal – most brands only release deals at the last minute! That said, judging by past years there will be plenty of enviable offers to tempt you when the sale rolls around.
Lululemon are particularly well known for their best-selling workout tights, which come in a wide range of lengths, styles, patterns and sizes (AU size 4-24, to be exact). Check out their cropped tights, 7/8 tights, and full-length tights on site to get a feel for what you fancy before the discounts drop. They also stock great bike shorts, supportive sports bras, chic yoga mats and plenty more fitness attire and accessories.
Pro tip: prep yourself by adding items to your wishlist so that you have a shortlist for when the sales go live, and we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as they do! And sidenote, Lululemon offers free shipping on all orders, so you don’t have to stress about leaving your couch to make your order!
Which Lululemon leggings are the most flattering?
Since Lululemon stocks such a wide range of leggings, there are actually heaps of options to choose from, all of which are praised by activewear fanatics. In particular though, there’s a lot of buzz around their Align High-Rise Pant, which is best for yogis; their Fast and Free High-Rise Tight, which have that barely-there, sweat-wicking feel perfect for runners; and their Tight Stuff High-Rise Tight, perfect for anyone who wants a little compression (and sweat-wicking) action while they train.
Does Lululemon go on sale on Black Friday?
Lululemon doesn’t get involved in sales very often- with the exception of Black Friday, which they do participate in annually. Basically, this is your best (and possibly only) time throughout the year to score a discount on their best-selling designs, so you’ll want to set a calendar reminder so that you don’t miss out on the deals.
That said, if you’re itching to get your hands on discounted Lulu pre- or post-Black Friday, their We Made Too Much clearance section features year-round savings on excess stock. Just note that you can’t return or exchange anything from that range.
Does Lululemon do Cyber Monday deals?
Yep, in past years Lulu has gotten around the Cyber Monday sales too. Check back here closer to the date (Cyber Monday is on November 30 this year, BTW) and we’ll let you know of the specific offers available as soon as we hear about them.
