meet the new

Meet the new To get to know her a little better we asked her a few questions (as we do with all new hires).

where did you grow up?
I grew up on the mean streets of Kitsilano, Vancouver BC. We didn’t even have broadband back then. If we were lucky we had dial-up once a week.

if you could have dinner with any three websites, decommissioned or current, which ones would they be?

1. Tim Berners-Lee’s original website, the first ever website. That was the start of it all…

what’s your hidden talent?
My intuition. My friends call me the gift whisperer.

most importantly: dogs or cats?

(down)Dogs, obviously.

what would you do if you knew you could not fail?

I’d pursue a singing career. I recently released my first single – I think I have what it takes to be an electro superstar.

favourite website?

Is this a joke?

what do you consider your top strength?

Organization - I love lists! To-do lists, laundry lists, naughty or nice lists, wish lists

my friends love me because…

I’m always almost always up for a chat (7am-6pm PST). Just call on me brother (or live chat), if you need a hand!

We always make sure our new hires get plenty of feedback to help their development. Any feedback you’d like us to pass along to

Just a thought – might be a logistical nightmare, but it would be really nice to have an “also wearing…” or “Get the whole outfit” mention on each model photo – the items that are paired together always look great.

And lovely to meet you! I thought I would share in return:

Where did you grow up?
The mean streets of Bolton … before my folks decided to (gasp) uproot us all to the beeeauuutiful English Lake District!

if you could have dinner with any three websites, decommissioned or current, which ones would they be? For all the lowdown on all my favourite blogs, people and passions I like to read my horoscope (despite my hubby’s protestations – I read waaaay too much into it!) and
LuluLemon: I love it’s personality!!! You make yoga cool (as it rightly should be!)

what’s your hidden talent?
My ability to have the cheesiest music on my ipod BUT it is always the one that gets the party going! NKOTB anyway!!!!

most importantly: dogs or cats?
I’m allergic to both but a dog can melt my heart … they are loyal old things aren’t they!

what would you do if you knew you could not fail?
Write a book. It’s been on my goal list and moodboard FOR-EVER!

what do you consider your top strength?
(Can I say my ipod again?) If not, my list=writing ability. Oh crikey, I need to get out more….

my friends love me because…
(Can I say my ipod again?) If not, because I’m loyal, give good hugs and will laugh at practically anything!

Dear Lulu,
I love trying on (and buying) lots and lots of Lululemon pieces. All my friends and their teenage daughters are gaga for Lulu but our nearest store is 50 km away! And in Toronto traffic! Ugh! Can’t go between 8-10am, and better be on our way home by 2pm or else it’s a nightmare! If only you would come and be a part of my new Yoga studio! We could do yoga, Pilates, and maybe, with your help, I could finally write that song I have been working on. Your loyal fan,

r u serious? before U start doing dance wear and this supposedly new and improved website, can you get the things you initially started to get right first, right FIRST. You don’t have stuff esp shirts, t-shirts and sleeveless tops long enough for tall girls; U never have enough stuff to order–the minute it is posted it is sold out or there is never enough of the nice colours in the stores in the popular sizes. The stuff is good and good quality–just not enough in the popular sizes and colours and styles and not enough for tall girls. We all are not skinny and short.

20% more cowbell. Thank you.

I love all my lulu items. I wear size 12 in lulu, and some styles, I can not wear at all because they are too tight to wear out of the bedroom! But as someone who is aspiring to get into a smaller size, I am disappointed that you haven’t tapped into a larger market, the plus size. But maybe you don’t want to go there. Too bad, everyone deserves to be able to fit into comfy, stylish and good quality work out clothes, instead of being the one in the back of the room wearing a box style tshirt and basketball shorts. And if you should expand your line, please don’t point us out with a different name/logo.

I agree with many of the other comments…everyone loves your stuff. It’s quality, it’s fashionable and functional. But get back to basics – stick with quality materials. Get some larger sizes that are flattering to someone who isn’t 110 pounds – ie- longer shorts, shirts that don’t stick to the midsection.

Again….in case the other posts were not clear…

1. Expand your sizes. While plus size would be quite nice, could you at least get real and at least carry a 14??? While I love Lulu, the size snob thing is a total turn off.

2. Manufacture enough to go around for cryin’ out loud.

Dear New,

You seem very nice. Don’t forget your loveliest asset is your sparkling intellect (the blog!) Would love to see it featured prominently on your home page. ;)
