One of the things that I got to participate in was the grand opening of the Lorna Jane store in downtown Seattle. If you have never heard of Lorna Jane here is a brief blip from their website:
"At the forefront of the movement since 1989 is Founder and Active Living Advocate, Lorna Jane Clarkson. Since sewing her first one-off design in Brisbane, Australia, Lorna has transformed her fashion sensibility into a world-leading Activewear brand"
I made my way to the store which is located in Westlake Center in the heart of Seattle. By luck, I entered on the correct side of the mall and the Lorna Jane Store was on the first floor. I was first impressed with how bright and cheery it was.
I was greeted by friendly staff and a couple of local vendors handing out samples. I was able to roam around browsing with out being smothered but there was adequate knowledgeable staff to answer any questions I had.
I saw a bunch of fun inspirational shirts like this one:
As I walked around, I met Leslie (I hope that's her name because sometimes I forget) the store manager. She was enthusiastic, vivacious and knowledgeable. We chatted about the history of Lorna Jane and the impact the active lifestyle has had in her life. While chatting I spotted this:
At the back of the store. I learned that this Lorna Jane store is what's called a living room store (again, I hope I'm quoting correctly).
Basically, what I took away from that was that you can go to the store and try out fitness classes. Just like the comfort of your living room. Whoa, fun and free!
There are lots of good things coming for this location and the Lorna Jane brand.
I found these things plus put lots on my wish list:
I was given a $50 gift certificate to spend the night of the opening for the purpose of a review. All opinions are my own.
I look forward to really embracing the active lifestyle that is at the heart of Lorna Jane & the SweatPink network.
