LIST OF FAKE LULULEMON SITES
The list I have compiled will include sites that sell counterfeit Lululemon, are a front for identity theft and have been known to never send the products purchased. Either case, please read carefully, familiarize yourself with these sites and do not make the mistake that many before you have made of making a purchase from any of them.
Keep in mind that most of these sites have stolen the Lululemon website's interface therefore the site looks very similar to the authentic one. But a good way to verify is by reading the descriptions (most are in broken English), checking the photographs used (most sites have the clothing on mannequins not models) and be educated with the product.
Other blog pieces that will give you more information on this subject.
Thank you to my readers who continue to be vigilant on this subject. As always, if you come across any other site not included on this list let me know and I will include it.
Lululemon: Beware of Fake Lululemon - Police warn!
It appears that the RCMP seized about 100 counterfeit Lululemon items from a house party in Point Edward, Ont on Sept 1, 2011. Lululemon does not hold home parties (like Tupperware, Partylite, etc) nor does it allow for bulk/wholesale purchases or multi-level marketing sales. Therefore, if you are approached by someone selling Lululemon via these methods chances are the product is either stolen or counterfeit.
Here is the full article:
Globe and Mail
RCMP have issued a warning against buying counterfeit products after fake Lululemon items were seized at a house party in Point Edward, Ont.
Police say about 100 fake items supposedly from fitness wear retailer Lululemon Athletica Inc. were seized in the community just west of Sarnia on Sept. 1.
No charges have been laid and police say the investigation continues.
They say counterfeit items are often cheaply made and do not meet Canadian standards.
Not only do fake items defraud consumers, RCMP say, but they can also be unsafe.
After reading this article, I thought it would be a good idea to list some of the places that are known to sell counterfeit Lululemon.

How To Spot Fake Lululemon
Lululemon also has the topic as part of their discussion board on Facebook
The quality of any authentic Lululemon product is superior - The fabrics used to make each garment are of exceptional quality. The detail and care that goes into each Lululemon piece make the brand stand out above the rest in the market place.
The moral of the story - If it's too good to be true, it usually is!

Lululemon: Beware of Fake Lululemon - Part II
Back in September 2011, I wrote a post (Beware of Fake Lululemon: Police Warn) about a seizure of fake Lululemon items at a house hosting a home party as well as different sites claiming to offer authentic Lululemon items at "wholesale" or "cheap" prices. I have since found a few new sites that claim to be Lululemon Wholesalers. Please understand that Lululemon does not hold trunk parties, does not hold home parties and does not offer wholesale opportunities to the public.
Here are a few findings:
The Clothing Wholesale - FAKE! This is site is full of fake designer items including Lululemon.
TheDesigner Wholesale Resources
- the interesting part about this site is that it claims to be a wholesale resources for authentic brands. It is one of the many sites that asks you to pay a fee and they will supply you with a list of wholesalers that can provide you with the designer brand you are looking for. If they are including Lululemon as one of their resources and since Lulu does not sell wholesale, I guarantee the list is full of fake suppliers.
Supplieryoga.com (also known as Lulu Lemon Store) is another site that claims to sell authentic Lulu at cheap prices. This site has completely copied the original Lululemon website by duplicating their heading and subheadings. If you are not familiar with the original site, it would be very easy to get confused. My virus program tells me this site is not safe therefore, only entered long enough to obtain a screen shot of the site. I believe they originally were known as lululemonstore.com but have since changed their domain to supplieryoga.com.
If you have come across other sites not listed here, please send me a message so I can update the list.
Beware Of Fake Lululemon - Part IV
****UPDATE**** Another address to this site has been brought to my attention by a reader - BEWARE of http://www.vitalproductions.ca This address leads you to the same site as lululemonoutlet.com - These scammers are using many different addresses to fool unsuspected buyers. If you come across other addresses, please let me know.
***UPDATE*** Not only does this site advertise the sale Lululemon products, it appears that the site is fake - It has been brought to my attention that people purchasing from this site are not getting their items because the site is a decoy to obtain credit card numbers and funds. The address on the site is fake, the phone number is also fake. Please stay away from this site and report it to Lululemon. I have already made several reports to them but unfortunately it is still active.
A reader recently brought another fake Lululemon site to my attention. This is another site that has copied the Lululemon's website interface and is claiming to sell Lululemon merchandise at wholesale prices. Beware oflululemon-outlet.com! The site looks authentic until you take the time to read the information and you will find a large amount of spelling mistakes as well as sentences in broken English. The interesting part is that this site is carrying a lot of the recently released merchandise therefore it is very easy for consumers to be fooled.
This is their description:
