There's a huge lululemon consignment event happening this weekend

Dec 2 2019, 9:34 am

lululemon makes some great clothes, but a shopping spree at one of their stores can seriously break the bank.

Luckily enough for those living in the Calgary area, the chance to purchase some lulu gear — or even make a few bucks — has come up in the form of the Pre-Christmas LULUPALOOZA consignment event.

Put on by local consigner Jeans Addition, the lululemon consignment event will be held on December 7, giving Calgarians the chance to pick up a few gently-used bargains and to potentially made a few dollars from their own lululemon outfits.

According to the event’s Facebook page, thousands of items will be up for grabs, from jackets to bras and everything in between.

It is noted, however, that there will be only two change rooms at the event, so if you’re not a fan of lines, “wearing something that will allow you to change on the fly, right in the space (tons of people do this at our sales, so you won’t be the odd one out!)” is probably your best bet.

Past sales have seen items go for less than half retail value at around $20 to $45, while some specialty items (such as jackets) are sold at around $75.

Those looking to sell their lululemon clothing through the consignment event will need to drop them off at Jeans Addiction (161 755 Lake Bonavista Drive SE), and they will then (after a few days) be given an offer for the clothing, which they can choose to accept or decline.

The event will be held from 10 am to 5 pm, though it is noted that only cash will be accepted.
