This is me and Amy after the Twin Cities Marathon 2010
This weekend my sister-in-law Amy Rose (who used to be a Amy Schmidt) is the new manager of a Lululemon showroom in Spokane, WA. This is the exciting news I wanted to share with you!
I fell in love with Lululemon after Amy took me to the store at the Mall of America. This isn’t your ordinary retail store. There are no pressuring sales people, no huge discount prices or messy dressing rooms. Instead, the store is loaded with fun, passionate and outgoing people. The walls are covered with motivational decor and slogans. Lululemon is a company who promotes/sells healthy, balanced lifestyles and technical clothing for yoga and running.
Every time I walk into a Lululemon store I feel inspired. It is very refreshing.
Two things I love about the company are:
1. The Intense Goal Setting
2. The Practical Clothing
Lululemon is an inspirational company that puts so much energy towards training, mentoring and supporting their people. It is much more than a retail store. They focus on goal setting and accountability. I don’t know about you but I don’t think Macy’s or Nike put that much attention towards personal development.
Lululemon’s apparel is functional, durable, reliable and cute! There are a ton of key features within every piece of apparel. To name a few of my favs-
- thumbholes- keep distracting sleeves under the thumb
- zipper garage- to prevent chin/neck scratches
- the zippers are actually hair ties. Perfect when I forget!
- chafe-resistant flat seams
- preshrunk material
Amy and I both share a deep passion for exercise and healthy living. She is an amazing sister-in-law and someone I look up to. I could not be more excited for her and the new role she is pursuing with Lululemon! I can’t even image all the awesome things she is going to accomplish. So excited to visit her in July!
The grand opening of the Lululemon Spokane, WA showroom is TODAY at 10:00AM. If you are living in the Spokane, Washington area don’t forget to stop in and say hi to Amy and her team. You can find them at:
To celebrate for Amy, I accomplished a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) Class this morning and I am toasting with a peanut butter protein shake.
Happy Friday and Congrats Amy Rose!
