The perfect gift for the lululemon nut in your life

The perfect gift for the lululemon nut in your life

Who doesn’t love the perfect pair of black stretchy pants?

lululemon athletica created the opportunity for a whole generation of women to feel good while working out, hanging out and whatever else we happened to be doing while living our best lives.

The company’s founder, Chip Wilson, has written “Little Black Stretchy Pants”, a memoir that shares his story of creating lululemon’s remarkable product and brand. From his early days on an Alaskan oil rig, to the creation of Westbeach and subsequent development of lululemon, Chip’s entrepreneurial spirit is unique, honest and inspiring.

Set in Kitsilano, Vancouver’s beachy neighbourhood known for hippie vibes and green juice, the lululemon story begins with Chip’s drive to support personal development in every employee. His quest to elevate the world from mediocrity to greatness, one employee at a time, was the foundation of the business.

The quest to be the best in the world wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows. No one gives feedback like Chip. Pick up your copy of the book and hear it for yourself.

Chip acknowledges that those of us who were lucky enough to work for the company helped it become what it is today. I can’t help but think, most of us got much more out of it than the years we put in. I am grateful for Chip’s commitment to his employees; for the introduction to Brain Tracy, Landmark and the concepts of goal setting and personal development.

This book was a reminder to live in the moment and give 100% when I’m sweating, with my family and at work. Chip, I’m sending gratitude out to the universe for you. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
