Mt. Pleasant is abuzz because lululemon, the leaders of the athleisure movement, have recently expanded their brand to Mount Pleasant Towne Centre (1236 Belk Dr.) for their holiday seasonal store. It’s no surprise that they set up shop there because leisure lifestyle is symbiotic with the Lowcountry. The athletic apparel company have always been at the forefront of combining technology with design. Their culture of fitness apparel made for both high and low impact workouts are tested on real athletes and yogis. This of course ensures that every single detail is thought about, including busy women like me who like to have a pocket in my yoga pants to put my phone in. Wearing workout clothes when your not working out is no longer a trend, it’s a way of life.
When you walk into any of their stores you might think where do I event begin? Don’t fret because their staff is so knowledgable and well versed about all of the product. Their guidance is key when your trying to decide which clothing will fit your workout and lifestyle. They also carry a generous amount of men’s clothing and girls clothing too from ages 6-14 years old. My husband tried on the ABC pants, and is now a lululemon fanatic because of their 4 way stretch. You can do yoga in them and jet to a meeting afterwards while still look put together. Their complimentary in-house tailoring services make it an even more personalized experience, because fit is everything!
What I love about lululemon is that they’re all about supporting the community. They work with local fitness instructors by having them teach at their in-store “Sweat Sessions”. These complimentary classes include both low and high impact workouts from yoga, pilates, hit, to tabata. You can catch classes on Saturdays at 9am and Sundays at 11am in the month of November, and in December they’ll be offering lunch day sweat seasons. Check out their local Facebook page to stay updated on what’s happening at the store.
Mount Pleasant Towne Centre always has a fun family friendly event going on and this Saturday is their big Lights Up Event. Starting at 6pm get into the holiday spirit on Saturday on Belk Drive as they light the Christmas tree and project a laser light show. The evening will also include live musical performances by the East Cooper Baptist Church Orchestra and Showstoppers from Musical Theater Center. I heard they’re going to have some great giveaways from Towne Centre shops, and a visit from Santa himself. Sip on some wine and beer from Wine Cellar Wine and Gifts while the kiddies enjoy the jump castle, face painting and arts & crafts with Art-Vark Palette.
