posted: May 11, 2010
it’s Alana here from the lululemon online team! I will be helping facilitate tomorrow’s chat with Melissa on Facebook and Twitter and making sure we answer as many questions as possible. Thank you to those of you who already asked your question in the comments here or on Facebook. We are excited, too!
Melissa will be answering as many questions as possible, but if your question doesn’t get answered please know that it may be because it requires someone from that specific department to answer. To clarify exactly what kinds of questions Melissa will be best equipped to answer, keep on readin’!
questions melissa can’t answer
Anything involving secret sauce. Also: whether specific products will be coming back, future store locations, and/or enhancements to specific current products. This is because each product has its very own department within lululemon, and only someone from that specific department would be able to answer those specific questions. So if you’re aching to ask a question about our run shorts, let us know! If we get enough run questions we will bring a run designer online for our next chat.
questions melissa can answer
As we mentioned in our introduction, Melissa worked on the product team for three years between production and design as lululemon’s full-support, high-impact bra designer and will be able to answer most bra-specific questions. Have a question about how your bra fits or what tank to pair with it? Ask Melissa. Also feel free to ask her about our bra line, her experience as a designer, or what it’s like to work on the design/production team. Do you love the Ta Ta Tamer? Guess what, she invented it!
Melissa now manages the lululemon lab – a unique retail/design space based in Vancouver. The lab designs, creates and produces lululemon pieces that you can’t buy in regular lululemon locations. Are you wondering if the lab has plans for expansion, what they make, if they plan to sell it online? Come online and ask!
And finally, Melissa is a super friendly and creative person with lots of interesting goals. Read some of her blog posts to get to know her better here.
She’s yours for 60 minutes, and very excited to hear from you!
See you tomorrow at 6:30 pm PST!
