Lululemon Like New: How to Buy the Resale Program

Whenever I go shopping, I always make sure to browse the active section in case there’s a pair of lightly used Lululemon leggings I can add to my wardrobe for a fraction of their normal price. But, except for one lucky shopping excursion, I always come home empty-handed.

Now, however, Lululemon has just made it easier to get its beloved sportswear at a discount. After a pilot program in 2021, the brand officially launched its first trade-in resale program, Lululemon Like New, across the United States. The program allows customers to purchase second-hand clothing and accessories from the brand and exchange old items for an e-gift card.

“At lululemon, we are deeply committed to creating quality products that are built to last and that are better for people and the planet. Bringing lululemon Like New to all US customers is a major step towards a circular ecosystem and achieving our impact program goals to reduce our environmental footprint,” shared Celeste Burgoyne, President of Lululemon for Americas and Innovation. customers worldwide, in a Release.

According to the brand, almost all Lululemon items will be accepted (apart from yoga accessories, underwear, collaborations, swimwear and self-care products), as long as they are in good condition and not show no visible signs of wear, such as fading, tearing or piling. On the site, resale items are labeled as “like new”, which means they have no visible defects or damage or “lightly used”, for products with light wear but still in good condition.

And considering the prices of typical Lululemon gear, the markdowns are pretty impressive. We found a pair of “lightly used” Align cropped pants for just $15 and a tank top for $25.

For those looking to exchange a gently used item from the brand, you can simply bring it to any of the more than one of the 390 participating US stores and exchange your item for store credit. Tanks, shirts and shorts will get you a $5 credit, while hoodies, sweatshirts, sweaters, dresses, bags and leggings and other bottoms will get you a $10 gift card . Coats and jackets can be redeemed for a $25 credit, the brand shared.

Lululemon also plans to dedicate 100% of its program profits (or 2% of total revenue, whichever is greater) to support the sustainability initiatives outlined in its Impact programwhich was established in 2020. The program outlines the brand’s sustainability, well-being and inclusion goals, which include making 100% of products with sustainable materials by 2030, reducing packaging in single-use plastic by 50% by 2025 and beyond.

Below we share a handful of products that you can buy from the resale site right now. Plus, in case you’re hoping to get some brand new Lululemon gear at a discount, we’ve also rounded up some can’t-miss picks in the brand’s “We Made Too Much” sale section.
