Sorry Vancouvertons, it seems you are all terrible dressers thanks to Lululemon. On the positive side, you’ve really helped boost their stock and $712 million revenue last year. Besides, you beat out Maui and Orlando, and you had an extra comfortable, butt-hugging time doing it while grocery shopping. Buttons and zippers be damned.
