The Lululemon Black Friday Collection Will Make You Rethink the Phrase "Basic Black"


Ah, Black Friday. The day after Thanksgiving is revered by bargain-hunters in search of great deals on holiday gifts, but actually heading out to a store on the day of can be a complete nightmare. Plus, stores like Nordstrom and Barnes & Noble have been making waves by pledging to keep their doors closed on the day after Thanksgiving in order to give their employees a true holiday break (did you hear that REI Wants You to Ditch Black Friday for Outdoor Activities?). But this year, we have at least one good reason to be excited about the oft-dreaded holiday: Lululemon is releasing a special collection just for the shopping bonanza and it's, quite appropriately, all black.

Whether you’re looking to splurge on a jacket for yourself or you’re searching for a little something for your workout buddy, this 8-piece capsule collection has a range of different options. There are sweat-wicking leggings and an extra cozy ear warmer (perfect for that post-Turkey Day workout), plus staples like the Pace tight and the Speed tight and shorts. 

Each piece incorporates their 360-degree reflective technology in a cool snakeskin print, perfect for logging those winter miles in the dark. And most of the items feature a little something extra tailored to the cold season: think fold-over sleeves to keep your hands toasty, a neck warmer that doubles as a hood, and ventilated panels to let your skin breathe without making you freeze.

As with Lululemon's other limited-edition collections (like their yearly Wanderlust series) we expect these special pieces to fly off the shelves, so if you want to get in on the sleek high-tech action, we recommend logging on to their site ASAP on November 27, or getting your squat-toned booty to a store early.
