Since Yahoo won't let me put 3rd party link in the msg, so this indirect method is the only way for me to do it...
Bottom line, this girl bought 4 pairs of Victoria's Secret yoga pants, at the $50 price or lower, and she has already gave away 3 pairs of it to her friends, and almost consider throwing out the last pair. Meanwhile, she also has many pairs of $78 to $90 pairs of Lululemon that she continue to love and wear and swear by it.
Bottom line, she got the VS yoga pants because the designs are very sexy and cute, and the lower price point certain don't hurt... but why is she giving them away? Bad quality and workmanship, and base materials. So, lulu competition might lure folks with cute design and lower price, but you get what you pay for, and only LULU will end up keeping loyal customers with repeated future sales, and a viral cult following.
Over 70% of Lululemon clothing is manufactured in developing countries. If you think that somehow a competitor cannot make the same quality clothing far cheaper then you are mistaken. It's all about branding and for years LULU have enjoyed first-mover advantage. This is coming to an abrupt end soon. IMO.
