Here are my top must-haves from this week’s new markdowns:

Women’s

  • Energy Bra Long Line in Azurite Poppy Coral Multi/Black: In my opinion, the Energy Bra is the most versatile sports bra in lululemon’s line of core sports bras. This Long Line version gives the feeling of extra support with a longer band & updated the lines of this classic bra. $58 -> $39
  • Tracker Short V 4″ in Azurite Poppy Coral Multi: One of the the most popular short styles every year, this is a must-buy anytime a color/pattern gets marked down. Especially early in the season. What’s better than getting shorts before summer and on sale AND with a matching (also discounted) bra?! $58 -> $39
  • Free To Be Bra Long Line *Online Only in Misty Merlot: Designed for a smaller cup size than the Energy Bra, this Long Line is designed to provide light support for A/B cups. I have this bra in Dark Chrome and I love it for spin! $58 -> $39
  • So Sherpa Hooded Jacket in Heathered Silver Spoon: The large bell-shaped sleeves on this make it more interesting than other oversized, fuzzy hoodies. Black and Garnet colors are also marked down! $148 -> $99
  • Still Mind Crop 23″ in Black: The waistband on these is a throwback to the Astro Pants of 6 years ago, but the fabric is upgraded to the naked sensation and buttery soft Nulu (made famous by the Align Pants). The Interlink Ice Grey Black pattern is marked down too, but it’s white-backed, which isn’t my favorite as it tends to lighten the pattern when it gets stretched. (The longer, stirrup-pant version of these crops are marked down too.) $98 -> $69
  • Vinyasa Scarf *Rulu in Ringspun Denim Black White AND Heathered Gravity: If you don’t already have a Vinyasa Scarf, you’re seriously missing out. You can’t call yourself a true lulu-lemon-head without a couple of these in rotation. There are tons of YouTube videos touting the versatility of this scarf. I use mine anytime I travel – even if just as a blanket on the airplane. $48 -> $29

Men’s

  • Geo Knit Reversible Crew in Heathered Anchor/Heathered Light Cast This unique sweater’s reversibility makes it two for the price of one. The jacquard knit is blended with silk to add softness and is fully machine washable. $158 -> $99
  1. Mason’s Peak Flannel in Grey Sage: I love this shirt and I love this color. Ladies, I have this in a medium and wear it open over tanks all the time but it also looks great tied up in the front. $118 -> $99
  2. Sky Loft Jacket in Dark Olive/Mossy: (also pictured in Black/Obsidian) Reversibility is the name of the game today. This lightweight jacket is water-resistant, wind-resistant and filled with Primaloft® insulation. $198 -> $119
  • Conflux Long Sleeve in Grey Sage: This anti-stink long sleeve can transition seamlessly from workout to all day. The TENCEL® fabric will feel soft and cool against your skin. $78 -> $59
  • Division Track Pant *Online Only 32″ in Grey Sage/Ocean Mist: Track pants haven’t looked this good in a long time! $118 -> $79

7 Products to Take You from Workout to Workday Without a Shower

We’ve all been there: You burned some calories, maybe PRed your deadlift or your 5K run, worked up a sweat and, in general, just proved you’re a badass workout machine. But now it’s time to get ready for work or that Tinder first date you’ve been stressing about all day, and you’re out of time. What do you do?

You can take your time in the shower, do your hair and walk into the office/restaurant a little late … your boss/date will understand right? Or you can try out a couple of my tips below. I’m the queen of extending blowouts – take it from me, these things work.

Disclaimer: Since deodorant and oral hygiene seem like no-brainers to me, I didn’t include them in this list. But you still have to use ’em, y’all. Just because they aren’t listed doesn’t mean they’re not necessary.

7. Moroccanoil Body™ Pure Argan Oil

This is the most expensive item on this list, but it’s also the most versatile; you can use this head-to-toe — hair, nails, skin. This pure argan oil is extremely rich in Vitamin E, essential fatty acids and antioxidants. But no need to worry about that gross greasy feeling, it absorbs so fast! All you have to do is put a few drops in your hands and massage it into your face, over your body and smooth through your hair. You can mix it with a small amount of lotion for extra hydration as well. Fragrance-free and paraben-free.

6. Wet Brush Detangling Hair Brush

Although designed for use on wet hair, it works just as well detangling dry hair. I have thick hair and I tend to let it grow long, so having a brush that can handle my sweaty tangles is important! I discovered this brush about 2 years ago and it’s been a game-changer.

I use the classic version, but they also have paddle brushes, travel size, a couple “pro flex” versions, a men’s version and so much more – there almost too many options!
