The Best News Ever?

Who knew Lululemon had warehouse sales?!?!

Spotted on Racked NY:

Lululemon Yogabowl Warehouse Sale
Deal: Markdowns on men's and women's athletic and yoga wear at the brand's massive warehouse sale. At the previous sale in Vancouver, merchandise was priced between $4 and $99. Credit cards and cash will be accepted, but no gift cards. Parking at the stadium is $10, and it's cash only.
When/Where: Friday, February 1 through Sunday, February 3. Fri—Sat 8am—8pm (last entry at 6pm), Sun 8am—6pm (inventory dependent). Nassau Coliseum, 1255 Hempstead Turnpike, Uniondale (no phone)
Link: Lululemon
Ends: Sunday, 3 Feb 2013

Um, really? Get me on a train to Long Island! (Seriously, it's ~1.5 hour train/bus ride!)

Although I must admit I'm surprised Lululemon has warehouse sales-- for a brand that doesn't have a designated 'sale' section in their stores and refers to discounted items on their website as 'we made too much,' a warehouse sale seems like a departure from their typical strategy. Especially since they seem to make such limited runs of hot items (like the shorts I'm craving) and cycle out inventory faster than most stores... will the sample sale just be a bunch of rejects? Or will there actually be real treats to be found?

Logical marketing hat aside... I'm dying to find out if it's worth the trip!
