oh snap…it’s a (Ware)house party!


Vancouver is our home and we couldn’t be more proud. From the North Shore Mountains to the Mighty Pacific, we love the place we call home. We’re adding one more must-see in this city: our upcoming (Ware)house party!

See below all the details you’ll need to join in on the fun.

lululemon athletica (Ware)house party

dates & hours of operation:

Friday, January 18 8am-8pm (Last entry at 6pm)
Saturday, January 19 8am-8pm (Last entry at 6pm)
Sunday, January 20 8am-2pm (Inventory dependent)

Yup, it's going to be a big one! We’ll be partying all weekend long at:

BC Place - 777 Pacific Boulevard, Vancouver BC

the nitty gritty: house rules

good things come to those who wait.

No one likes a long wait. Although you will be waiting to get into the party, we promise you this won’t be your “typical” line. Think music, laughs, some Vancouver celebrating and a few surprises along the way.

hands-free partying

Before entering the party you’ll need to check your bag (please leave your heavy coats at home!) We need to be hands free to shop, dance and party the day away. An outfit with a couple pockets to stash your belongings may be your most successful bet. Bag checked - party on Wayne.

essentials only.

We’ll be accepting debit or credit cards (remember your photo I.D. to verify identification)
*giftcards and cash will not be accepted at the warehouse sale*

we’ve waited, now what's in there?

The BC Place has been outfitted with an abundance of luon, luxtreme and some cozy cottons for men, women and girls who love to dance.

getting around the party

All products will be organized by size with sections for men, women and ivivva. There will be layouts, maps and pricing around so no one gets lost as well as plenty of educators to answer any questions that may come up during the party.

try it on for size

There will be separate communal change rooms for both men and women. Wear easy slip-off clothes if you’re planning to try things on for size.

stadium yoga

Yup, we'll be bending too! 90 minutes of energetic Power Vinyasa with Suzanne, Karlito, Dustin & Reno from One Yoga is gonna keep us all feeling limber. Join us for a stadium Vinyasa class, smack in the middle of BC Place on Friday, January 18 8pm–9:30pm 
(doors open at 7:15). Pssst - bing your own mat.


Look into the future with rockstar goal coachers Julie Ball and Jacki Carr and learn to set a personal vision that is grounded in your passions, gets you excited and leaves a legacy you love. Saturday, January 19 8:30pm–10pm
 (doors open at 8pm).


Check out our facebook event for more information on the sale, yoga and goals.

Also follow us at @lululemonWHS on Twitter for all the in the moment updates - it's gonna be one heck of a #warehouseparty!

Tell me you’re coming back to the USA’s midwest!? Chicago last year was fantastic, so much fun & great gear!

Comment by Alyssa Craft — January 9, 2013 @ 4:42 pm

It will be a yoga class on friday morning? Or is just on afternoon?

Comment by Leticia — January 9, 2013 @ 9:48 pm

So is it a sale?

Comment by Ericka — January 9, 2013 @ 11:38 pm

Hi Alyssa,
The locations of our warehouse parties can change each year and we don’t have any word on where the US one will be. Stay tuned through our social channels as we’ll keep guests posted there with event details.

Hi Leticia,
On Friday we’ll be hosting Stadium Yoga, a 90 minute Vinyasa class taught by our friends at One Yoga. I haven’t heard word for a yoga class in the morning.

Hi Ericka,
There will be markdown items at the warehouse party.

Hi Chad,

I hear what you’re saying…sometimes a “beverage” makes everything better. That being said, there will be no alcohol served at BC Place during the (Ware)house Party. High fives, dance parties and general frivolity is certainly encouraged, and PSSST: there are a number of fine institutions near the facility should thirst became an issue.

Comment by Ashley — January 16, 2013 @ 9:39 pm

Hi Monique,
We will have a variety of lululemon gear including accessories.

Hi Ashley,
We don’t deny strollers however my suggestion is to leave the stroller at home for easy maneuvering through the sale.

what kind of discounts will you have on items?

Comment by tracey — January 17, 2013 @ 11:46 am

Hi Tracey,
I don’t have any details on what type of markdowns you can expect although from speaking with guests who’ve attended previous warehouse sale events, you won’t want to miss this one! I personally head into these types of events on the first day to scope out product, size and styles.

Hey Lulu organizers! I wonder if we might see some of the elusive ‘barre method’ items in the mix? I have been looking for the socks everywhere!

Comment by Lianna — January 17, 2013 @ 1:54 pm

Hi Lianna,
I’ve been following @lululemonWHS on twitter and I’ve seen a couple sneak peaks although no word of Barre Method Socks. I find that accessories and socks tend to go lightening fast so to check out the gear, head in as soon as you can!

Hey Lulu organizers,

I was just wondering if the event is free to enter?

Comment by Charlotte — January 17, 2013 @ 5:27 pm

i read no gift cards..but does that mean no lululemon gift cards? i bought my wife a card from your store and was hoping she could use it at bc place. thanks.

Comment by warlo — January 18, 2013 @ 10:03 am

I drove from Kelowna to Vancouver for the Annual Wearhouse sale
I spent a lot of money and purchased a Black and White Swan Dip Dyed with the fur around the hood – Size 6 – my receipt shows it – but when I arrived home it wasn’t in my bag :-( – is anything going to be able to be done about this as it wasn’t cheap

Comment by Thia — January 19, 2013 @ 6:15 pm

Hi there, I just came back home from the warehouse sale and I just noticed that the cashier forgot to remove one of those black security clips on my jacket that i bought. What should I do becaus I can not remove it neither can i wear it without getting it removed. Please let me know what to do. Thanks

Comment by Sukh — January 19, 2013 @ 10:05 pm

Here’s how the coat check ( which is mandatory for every coat and bag) works… all bags and coats go in a large clear plastic bag which when you go to claim your belongings is ripped open and goes in the garbage. So the thousands of us who stood in line (for an hour) each contributed to the land fill.
The sale is terrible – old styles, OUTDATED items by the hundreds…lots of striped leggings and tights with attached skirts -you’ll stand in line for little selection and perhaps feel compelled to buy cause you wasted so much time standing in line to get in…but then you’ll stand in another line to pay and then another to get your coat and watch the bag go into a giant bin full of other plastic bags headed to the garbage.

Comment by Laura — January 19, 2013 @ 11:48 pm

Well done Lululemon WHS! Excellent markdowns on the last day! 4 shorts for $50! 4 men’s items for $100! Buy one, get one free! Great atmosphere! Tons of lulu people around. The only thing I wish I had mentally prepared for was the line up to get my checked jacket. But great job for the 3-day house party at BC Place!

Comment by Evanna — January 21, 2013 @ 3:16 pm

Hi Charlotte,
There is no charge to enter the event.

Hi Warlo,
Yes, this also includes lululemon gift cards. We are not able to accept lululemon gift cards at our warehouse event.

Hi Thia and Sukh,
Please reach out to us at the GEC (1.877.263.9300) with these details and we’d love to work on a solution with you.

Will there ever be a warehouse sale in Ontario for 2013?

Comment by Monica — April 8, 2013 @ 8:49 am

Hi Monica,
We tend to switch up the locations of our events and as we’ve seen one in Ontario before there’s a greater chance we’ll see one in another area of Canada before going back to Ontario. Having said this, I don’t know where the next Canadian warehouse party will be but we’ll be sure to keep you posted with details as they become available.
