Lululemon sale: The best items to buy during this rare online sale

The activewear retailer is having a one-time, online-only sale with big markdowns. These are the products to buy.

Lululemon sale? Lululemon sale! Shout it from the rooftops, because those two words don't come together often. Everyone's favorite place to buy activewear that makes their wallets wince is having a massive online-only sale from now through July 13. 

Throughout the five days, Lululemon will mark down various items on its online storefront up to 50% and beyond. Markdowns will go up daily, and the sale will include items from all categories. 

Because we're in the same boat as most people (love Lulu, hate how much it costs to buy it), the two of us decided to round up some of our favorite products that we think are worth snagging during this Lululemon sale.

You heard it here first: Fanny packs will once again take the throne for the trendiest and most convenient way to cart around your stuff. Get this sleek Lululemon fanny pack for $14 off while you can, because if you're going to have a fanny pack, it may as well be Lulu luxurious.

I have one Lululemon sports bra, and I actually hate to say it's my favorite sports bra of all time. It's one of those instances when you hate that "you get what you pay for" rings true. Anyway, it's worth buying the Up For It Bra during the Lululemon sale because at $29, it matches the price of any sports bra you might find at, say, a Target -- except it's Lululemon and now you get to say you own a Lululemon bra.

There's no better time than now to get Lululemon's Active Jacket. Unless, of course, you're cool with paying $128 for it -- or you could just man your computer and get it for nearly 40% off during the Lululemon five-day sale. 

The Active Jacket is lightweight and designed for running. With durable water repellent-treated  fabric, this jacket intends to protect you from the elements during outdoor exercise, such as running or hiking.

I love a good layering long sleeve top, even in warmer temps. This one from Lululemon is made with "anti-stink" technology, which is a must if you like to layer while running outside or even throw it on post-workout. I love the thumb-holes feature, a must for colder weather when you want to layer the top under a coat or jacket and keep your hands warm.

I must be honest: I would never pay nearly $130 for a pair of leggings, not even Lululemon leggings. But, I might pay $79 for a really, really good pair of high-rise tights (I don't mess with low- or even midrise tights). These leggings might actually be worth it because of the breathable mesh fabric, high-rise waistline, 28-inch inseam (full-length!), phone pocket and drawstring.

I'm a huge fan of high-waist bike shorts these days. I love that the support is better than traditional shorts, but you feel much cooler wearing these compared to long leggings. Plus, these have an open-hole design that is fun, but also super-functional for keeping you cool. These also have a hidden pocket in the waistband, perfect for stashing a key or card when you head out the door.

I love a good flowy workout tank -- I just can't bring myself to work out in anything too form-fitting. The armpits have to be free, you know? I like the Sculpt Tank II because it's flattering, but still has a relaxed fit. It has a four-way stretch, and the material wicks sweat away from your skin.

WFH uniform need a refresh? While there's nothing wrong with rocking leggings or sweatpants 24/7 right now, if you need an upgrade, these pants fit the bill. They look sleek and sophisticated and if you cover up the elastic waistband and drawstring with your top no one will know they're actually activewear. These are perfect for travel (whenever we can do that again) since the fabric is wrinkle-free. If you usually travel a lot for work, these are a great investment since they can easily take you from the airport straight to a meeting.

These days, a belt bag is a must when it comes to storing your essentials and staying as hands-free as possible when in public. And besides -- belt bags (aka fanny packs) have been having a moment for a while. Now it truly makes sense to grab one so you can walk, grocery-shop or pick up takeout with a cute bag that can fit your wallet, hand sanitizer and phone. I love this sunny lemon color, and if you're not sold on fanny packs yet, you can even wear the bag on your shoulder or as a crossbody.
