Lululemon Slang Terms

The Vernacular of a Lululemon Addict

If you’re thinking about entering the world of after market Lululemon sales, you must be versed in the vernacular of the indigenous population of Lulu collectors, lest you become lost in the Swirl of Peri-manifesto print.

Quickly, let’s go over some of the most common abbreviations and terms.

Unicorn: An item that the party has been searching for for a long time, that is both rare and highly desirable. Many people’s unicorns are also the unicorns of others as well.

GEC: Guest Education Centre, basically, Lululemon’s Customer Service

ISO: In search of. People will post ads stating that they are in search of an item in hopes that someone will reply to that ad with the item that they are looking for, and hopefully a fair asking price.

DISO: Desperately in search of

EMT: Email Money Transfer, a Payment method available to Canadians

TTS: True to Size, indicating that the buyer bought their normal size in the item

Angel: An angel is a community member who will purchase an item for you at a location convenient to them, accept payment for the item- including postage, and often a tip- and mail the item to you.

  1. Hi! I just walked by something sharp off a table while I was working and a hole appeared on my mid length lu lu lemon leggings. it is a small hole near the seam and kind of where the zipper starts. I am not sure how I should repair this hole. I wear these all the time and love them!! they were so expensive and I don’t want to buy new ones right now. I also don’t want the hole to grow.

    thanks for the help.


    1. Hello! Thank you for your question! If the repair is something Lulu can fix, like a ripped seam or hemming, then yes, Lululemon will repair them. If it is a stain or other tear or hole, likely they will not repair them, but it depends on the store. I hope that helps!
