zite puts inspiration at our fingertips

ipad - zite - lululemon

We’re constantly searching online for different blogs and articles to help inspire and motivate us. All that information can be overwhelming and sometimes surfing the net for ultra-marathon training tips can take longer than actually running the ultra-marathon. We wanted a way to track down all that information (from challenging workouts to new recipes) without wasting valuable time. That’s when we fell in love with Zite.

zite, the personal magazine

inspiration at your fingertips

Zite is a free iPad (and now iPhone!) app that pulls together articles about all the topics we're interested in and organizes them into a personal magazine. The app personalizes the feed depending on which articles we read and how we feel about them; we can give an article the thumbs-up (or thumbs-down) and share it with friends. The more we use it, the more it learns about what we like and, over time, it serves up the best content from our favourite sources, people and places.

lululemon's section on zite

zite lululemon channel

Zite is a great tool for busy people who love to discover things, so we've been working with their team to co-create a section within the app to curate content that both inspires and challenges us. The section pulls from some of our favourite sources and topics across the web – recipes that make us want to cook, workouts that make us want to sweat and design inspiration that helps keep our creative juices flowing. We’ve sculpted our section on Zite to serve up content we think you’ll like; the more you read on Zite, the more it will cater to your own personal taste. If you read more articles about yoga, rather than ones about running, you’ll start to see more posts about Half Moon and fewer about half-marathons.

how to get the lululemon channel on zite?

At the moment, we're still testing and evolving our Zite section. We'd love to hear your feedback about it. Try it out and let us know if you think it's something we should keep doing.

Great work on this Kristina and the Zite team! Playing around with the section tonight and am enjoying the content it’s serving up. Can’t wait to see how the section evolves based on my preferences over time!

Love the Zite app and our own page! Maybe you can link to some our own blogs. I write a food blog when I am not educating at the keystone store. Could be fun to link to up this way!

Kristina and Lulu,

My husband is going to flip.

Every day, we look at Zite on the iPad.

Every day, he sees my closet lined with oodles of Lululemon clothing (and that’s only the stuff he can see! Shhhhhh!)

Now, the two worlds collide by bringing Zite and Lulu together!!

Thanks so much! I love it and look forward to all the great content!

@Kristie- exciting news! Zite launched their iPhone app on Friday. Our lululemon athletica channel is on the iPhone now too.

Just downloaded Zite for my iPhone and love what I’m reading on the lululemon channel. I look forward to reading more! And now I really want an iPad…Santa?

Exceptional use of technology – thank you!

As lululemon on Zite evolves, please consider incorporating additional content and support for goal setting.
