Updated: 10/15/2019 | lululemon Charleston Store
I’ve been eyeing a few things on lululemon‘s We Made Too Much (WMTM) inventory.
While in Charleston, South Carolina, I was super stoked to find a lululemon store! The store was small but had a great selection of seasonal and transitional items.
It was still in the high 90s in Charleston and the store stocked puffy coats and rain jackets.
Below are some store photos and my fitting room try ons.
Charleston is a very old city dating back to the 1770’s. Many of the stores on King street retained a lot of its old southern charm. I was excited to stumble upon lululemon‘s patio area! Look at how cute it is. I could spend all day here.
Now onto the good stuff! #TRYONs
lululemon Fitting Room Try Ons
I was super stoked to be able to try on WMTM apparel in person. It definitely helped me determine if I really wanted to spend my money on final sale products.
#1 Noir Shorts
The Noir shorts were on sale in-store for $58 (normally $78). The shorts were on sale online for $49 ($9 dollars less!).
The shorts ran small. I typically wear a size 6 in lululemon bottoms but had to size up to an 8 in the Noir shorts. I tried both the Rustic Clay (red) and Honeycomb (yellow).
I was hoping to really like the Noir shorts, but they were very crease prone and would require steaming or dry cleaning to keep the shorts looking crisp.
One thing that I loved about the colors was that they went well with my Rothy’s Big Cat shoes.
#2 Everyday Skirt
The Everyday skirt was available in navy and black in-store. Online they came in all sizes. I loved how flowy the skirt fit. The ruched waistband made my waistline look small. The skirt runs small, so I recommend sizing up in the Everyday skirt.
The skirt was available in-store and online on $59 (regularly $78). I ended up buying a size 8 and getting the skirt sent directly to my home in Seattle.
#3 On the Fly Joggers (woven)
The OTF joggers were available in-store in only two colors. Online there are 5 colors to choose from. If you end up buying this style, I highly recommend sizing up for a more comfortable fit.
I ended up sending these back to the racks.
#4 Noir Pants
The pants are great for travel or wearing to work. The fabric does not have much give but feels very lightweight.
I ended up sending these back to the racks. I’ll wait until they’re on sale to buy them.
#5 Another Mile Jacket
The jacket has a removable hood and the panels give the jacket a slimming and sleek look. The hood is large enough to fit my thick ponytail. I also loved the honey lemon (yellow) color!
The jacket fits true to size. I tend to size up in outerwear so that I can wear layers underneath.
Between this jacket and the Brave the Cold coat, I’ve got all the outerwear I need.
#6 Ready to Roll Hoodie
The Ready to Roll Hoodie looked unflattering but was very comfy.
The jacket was on WMTM for $89 (regularly $. They only had one size 8 (my one size up) available. I would have gotten my true size or even sized down in the Ready to Roll Hoodie.
I ended up sending it back to the WMTM rack. I am sure I can find something similar that looks much better and costs less.
#7 Wunder Under Pants 25″ length in Nulux
The Wunder Under Pants in Nulux ran huge! I tried on a size 6, which they had plenty of on the WMTM rack. The 6 fit more like an 8 and was very baggy around the waist. The MSRP for these pants are $128, which is overpriced IMHO. They were on sale on WMTM for $89.
I ended up sending these back to the WMTM rack. I was very disappointed in the fit. The fabric was also softer and stretchier than Nulux Fast & Free tights.
#8 Energy Crescent Sports Bra
The Energy Crescent sports bra was surprisingly very supportive and comfortable. Retails $58 but on sale for $39. In-store they only had the black available. Online they have both the black and tempest blue available.
I ended up bringing the Crescent sports bra home with me.
