The Oprah Effect - I Predict Negligible



Video of the Relaxed Fit Pant from the Oprah Show - Could they make them look more mom-like?

So there is speculation on the Luluelmon Facebook page now that Oprah has declared the Lululemon Relaxed Fit pant one of her favorite things the secret on Lululemon is out and it'll be much tougher to get the items we like on upload Thursdays or in the stores. Frankly, I just can't see the Oprah show having that much of an effect. First of all, paying $98 for a pair of yoga pants is a huge sticking point for a lot of people and I think particularly for Oprah's audience. A little googling found that her audience is primarily over 55 years old which is a bit above Lululemon's target market age.  Also, I can't find much on the income statistics of Oprah's audience but I've got to believe it's not super affluent.  I think I've read that Lululemon's typical customer is a professional woman with an income of $85,000. The malls that the Lululemon stores are in in Orange County are two of the nicest around - Fashion Island in Newport Beach which has a Neiman Marcus across from it and Irvine Spectrum, a city of 200,000+ with a median income of $91,000.  I could be wrong but I just don't think her audience overlaps that much with Lululemon's.  Even when I was stuck home with the kids as infants I never watched her show.  If I did watch tv, I think I watched HGTV where at least I could learn something. Once the kids got a little older they took over the tv watching Blue Clues and Thomas the Tank Engine. Anyway, I just don't see the Oprah seal of approval affecting Lululemon that much. -- I forgot to say that the Relaxed Fit pants look incredibly unremarkable in this clip. By pairing them with the Oprah show tee, they couldn't make them look more mom-like if they tried.

I think you are making a few sweeping generalizations. Just because the primary audience of Oprah is age 55+ doesn't mean that there aren't any casual watchers under 55. I am a student in my 20s, yearly income of around $10,000, but I am a big consumer of lululemon, and I watch Oprah from time to time. Advertising is advertising and the Oprah Winfrey show has a HUGE audience. You also have to take into account that 55 year old ladies probably have a huge christmas shopping list to go through...I wouldn't be surprised if relaxed fit pants will be a little more in demand than usual.

Also please explain how HGTV is more educational than Oprah.

I agree - they really put the "mom jeans" treatment on those pants!

Although I have no evidence of this, I get the feeling that much of Oprah's audience hails from the mid-west and south, where the cost of living is much lower than Southern CA, the Bay Area (where I live), and other locations where Lululemon stores tend to congregate. I know my extended family in the midwest would think I was absurd if they knew I spent $98 on workout pants. Their parking tickets are under $10 whereas the equivalent offense here costs upwards of $60. $98 pants is a huge cost when you consider differing costs of living.

Anonymous...please explain how you can be a big consumer of lulu on a $10k income? Either you have budget secrets you should share with us or someone else is paying your rent, utilities, groceries, etc...

I'm a student, I live at home, have summer jobs, scholarships pay for my tuition, I pay for everything else (including lululemon) minus food and rent.

What I'm trying to say is that we shouldn't assume that only rich people wear lululemon, that all people who wear lululemon are rich, or that only middle aged ladies watch Oprah. I'm not sure if it'e because I am from Canada and the income gap is not nearly as severe as in the US, but from what I see, people of all ages, sizes, and income levels like their Lululemon here, for workout and for casual wear.

A few years ago Oprah touted Splendid's french terry pants and their matching t's. The pants were 98.00 and after her touting..extremely difficult to get.

Glow said...

Wow. It makes me cringe that they tucked the shirt into the pants :p.
On a different note, I'm also a university student who spends heavily on Lululemon (if $300 a month is a lot?). I live on my own, but I have a part time job, and I get a good deal on rent. Hooray for scholarships and budgeting skills.

I was at the store yesterday in Halifax to get my 2 new pair of relaxed fit pants (the brushed ones) hemmed. This is a total of 6 pairs for me as I love them. Anyway, the educator was telling me I was LUCKY to already have these because they were on Oprah and that they may be hard to get now. Then when I went back into my dressing room I heard a customer inquiring as to what pants I had on, and that she wanted THAT same style. Then she said, "What was it you also said about the Oprah show?" I think she liked the look of them first, but I also think the word Oprah caught her attention. I think the relaxed fit pants are under rated. Maybe now they will get their props! It doesn't matter to me if they get more popular, as I own a bunch. I think Lululemon will get more popular now in the US, but in Canada it's already all over the place!

The pants will be harder to get because of Oprah and Michelle Obama. When Michelle Obama wore J Crew things sold out in very fast, the same will happen at LLL.

I find Lulu is become a cult following. I was in a store yesterday and things were flying off the shelves i.e. the Post Run Pullover $88.00. This top run a size smaller than usual and imo it is not worth the price.

I heard customers making the comment that stuff is overpriced for what it is. Lulu is becoming almost too popular now, and the quality is going down on some items. The Merino Pullover is rough to tough, and is pilling already, and looks like it will stretch out.

Anonymous said...

Lulu Addict, think about it. Women over age 55 have lots of disposable income. Everything Oprah touches turns to gold. If you notice, the Relaxed Fit pants are sold out in the larger sizes online -- which is proof that the Oprah effect is working. Another point, somewhat off-topic: the web site now features women of color wearing the relaxed-fit pants! Lululemon=smart.

Anonymous said...

I had recorded the episode and happened to finally watch it this morning. Agreed, that they couldn't have made the pants look any worse with the frumpy oprah tees TUCKED IN to the pants. Should have been a full lulu outfit. On a side note, about two weeks ago I ordered my first pair of relaxed fit pants (brushed) online and I really like them. I think they are a great all-around pant for just about any figure. While the relaxed fit pants may temporarily be in more demand (I predict just for the holiday purchasing season), I don't think that lululemon overall will increase their customer base just from exposure to this one style of pant.

Anonymous said...

Disappinted you took such a nasty tone. I am from OC, loving in NYC and I occasionally watch Oprah but lets fave it all of rading a blog on fitness attire can't rank as "learning something". The show is about items she loves. take it or leave it or just don't watch. She loves lululemon, I do to and I am sure we will all still be able to make more and increase production if it does impact their sales in a positive light. Who cares about the average views income, age of residence. I hope this will not be the tone of future posts, not becoming.

RunMama said...

I think even if you don't watch Oprah (I never do) it makes it news when she 'likes' something, which may be enough for some people to seek the item out even if they don't make the time or have the inclination to watch the show. I also think 55+ women like to be stylish and comfortable and do have money to spend. Also, I like what Oprah has apparently done for my lulu stock. :-)

Anonymous said...

I used to work at a Bath and Body works, and when Oprah came out liking our 'Pumpkin Scrub' we blew through it, and this was in snooty Santa Barbara, CA.

I think it may impact things short term, but Lulu will up production (slightly) and then when the hype wears off there will be tons of these pants hanging around the stores.

Lulu used to be like a special secret aficionados were all in on, now it is at Mall of America, for-crying-out-loud. How bourgeois, can you get?!?!?

Anonymous said...

I think lulu cheaped out and didn't donate a full outfit, with the tucked in tee the outfit looks typical mid-American frumpy.

I also have a hard time believing those are Oprah's favourite thing considering she looks to me to be a size 18, how does she fit into these pants?

Anonymous said...

If you search on google about oprahs favorite things there are tons of articles on companys who couldnt keep up with the demand of their products after being on the oprahs favorite thing show. Also oprahs favorite thing is the top watched episode every year so im sure the audiance is very different. I watched it and never watch oprah and im also a student who loves lululemon and spends at least 300 a month.
Lulu has clearly planned for what may happen after being feature on lulu if you notice online the first photo of 4 rows in the pants section are the relaxed fit pants and everything that lulu is posting is based around pants lately including my store (halifax) which did a video on pants.

Anonymous said...

RunMama - I keep hitting myself for not buying stock when I was going to ;) hehehe.
I don't think that LuluAddict was trying to be rude or presumptuous, she was just stating what she had read on statistics of the "average" Oprah viewer and Lululemon customer. She also mentioned her opinion, which is what her blog is about - I think she's free to spout whatever she likes. It's *her* blog.
I for one spend way too much on Lulu - probably what I should be paying for rent if I didn't live at home. Eeek. Anon 10:24PM - I'm in the midwest and yes, my family would think I was crazy if they knew I paid that much for clothing in general, let alone "yoga wear." My mom watches Oprah. I mentioned to her they had Lulu on, but please don't pay attention to the price! :)
In response to the Oprah effect - I agree with LuluAddict to a degree about the fact not everyone is going to go out paying $98 for yoga pants just because they saw them on the show. I do spend that much on them, and I liked the Ralph Lauren Cashmere sweater on her show, but just because she had it doesn't mean I'm going to go out and spend the $498 for it (that's a bit above my budget). Now the lasagna pan at probably $30ish is more my style. :)

You are very naive in your assessment of both Oprah's influence and Lululemon's audience. Have a look at O magazine and see what her "followers" read, wear, eat, drink, how they decorate their homes. Your "not affluent" comment is way off base.

And gee, because I am 53 does that mean I don't work out, want stylish workout clothes, or enjoy wearing Lululemon? You are showing your self-centered attitude with your ageist comments. For what's it worth, I'll take you on in ANY sport ANY day and know I can kick your butt.

I did buy Lululemon stock about 14 months ago at 22 per share. Last I looked it was over 40. :-)

momof5 said...

WOW -- an awful lot of hostility today-- we seem to forget that it is luluaddicts blog -- she can write whatever she wants -- and is entirely free to state her opinion--it seems whenever she has a non lulu KoolAid comment-people jump all over her --

I, for one, thank her for providing an OBJECTIVE forum to discuss a product that obviously we are all passionate about -- I would much rather her report both the good and the bad about a product to make an informed decision instead of hearing how wonderful everything is when there are some quality issues of late. Furthermore-- I tend to agree -- although Oprah is an undeniable marketing dream-- the pants were not at all flattering in the episode -- which wouldn't want me want to run out and buy them -- and I already love the brand -- So I am not so sure how this will all pan out -- I guess we will all just have to wait and see and watch the effect.

As for the threats, if at over 50, you are using a blog as a method of threatening, you have a bigger problem than not being able to find pants at lulu. I reread lulu's comments again -- and I don't find her comment to be abrasive -- she is merely stating facts that she researched on google.

I work at a lululemon store in Alberta Canada and I can tell you that this is a HUGE deal for the relaxed fit pant. We had people calling the store to put them on hold before we even opened our doors yesterday. Throughout my entire 8 hr shift I had women of all ages coming to get the "Oprah Pants". By the time I left the store at 2 we were out of backstock in most sizes and only had a couple 8s,10s, and 12s left. I am assuming that my Monday all sizes will be sold out. I am not an Oprah watched either, I would love to be if I had time but I simply do not! That does not mean her once a yr favourite things show doesn't get me excited-i love it and was so excited when lululemon was on it this year!

momof5, read the post more carefully.

The poster said "For what's it worth, I'll take you on in ANY sport ANY day and know I can kick your butt."

To me that a a fitness/athletic challenge rooted in the age difference of the blog owner and the poster.

It appears to me that the blog owner is discounting the fitness interests and taste of anyone over, say 35?

I agree its her blog and she can say what she wants but by allowing comments on the blog she is opening up a dialogue.

We can choose to disagree via comments, but if the blog owner doesn't want dissenting opinions then comments can be moderated or closed (which makes for an incredibly narrow-minded, boring blog).

Anonymous said...

I disagree completely. You can't overestimate the influence Oprah will have on anything and it's very naive of you to assume it will be negligible. Women who have never heard of Lululemon (or have never bothered to try it on) will be doing so because Oprah endorsed it. She's the most influential figure in America (and far surpasses Michelle Obama). Lululemon will now be a household name where it wasn't before because of Oprah.

And with Christmas coming people who might not have normally spent $98 on a pair of pants might be asking for them as a gift.

I have no idea how she fits the pants though. Lulu probably custom made her a pair. I mean come on, it's Oprah.

Anonymous said...

I think that whatever Oprah endorses will be bought up like crazy by many ages, and there is lots of past evidence to prove that. And I actually find that statistic that the typical customer makes of $85,000 somewhat odd because the majority of friends that wear lululemon are all college students. But maybe its true, who knows?

I think that what seems to come across as offensive is just the way luluaddict presents the topic. She clearly has picked a side and writes without acknowledgement to another opinion or another side to the claim she makes. I just think that is offensive to people. Maybe the next time luluaddict writes about her opinion on a topic she can take a more objective approach and include the "other side's" opinion. That way it would be more of a discussion rather than just a fight over opinions.

And I didn't find the challenge/threat of anon @8:59 to be funny, not offensive. How could you find that offensive? haha

Anonymous said...

I think it is horrible that people (NOT luluaddict in particular, but just people in general) see wearing lulu as a way to say "I'm skinny, rich, and I can put my legs behind my head". I buy lululemon because it is comfortable and functional. I know lulu has crossed over into run and other sports, but it is still a "yoga inspired" athletic apparel line, and as yogis (or just good people) we should not be trying to prove we are better than others with what we wear.

All this hostility is so silly, luluaddict was simply stating her view- I honestly don't think that she was trying to criticize Oprah, her viewers, old people, or those who don't buy lululemon. The only criticism I can see is that they made the pants look so frumpy- which is true!

chelsea said...

man oh man....we are literally discussing a television shows and ATHLETIC clothing. it's luluaddict's blog and it's her opinion. if you disagree, sure...make a comment and say "i disagree for these reasons...." no need to get so personal about it. yeah, oprah will probably affect sales of the pants over the next couple months and yes...probably overall. great for the company - great marketing, good for them and their shareholders. i think some people will buy a couple things, others might become addicted like the rest of us but if demand goes up, so will supply eventually. there might be a period of time where it might be difficult to get this item or that item but they will respond.

again, luluaddict was making generalizations about demographics. there is nothing set in stone. that just means that MOST people fall into this demographic, not all. i don't think taking personal offense is really productive in this forum. but hey, i can only speak for me.

I agree that Oprah's "endorsement" of Lululemon will have a much greater impact than the luluaddict realizes. Many years ago (probably 20 years ago!) I was lucky enough to have a handwoven shawl I made endorsed by Oprah and worn on her show. You cannot imagine the impact that had on my career, even way back then, when Oprah's influence was no where near the juggernaut it is today

Anonymous said...

To all of the students who live at home, have your parents pay your school tuition and eat their food, yet still spend hundreds of dollars per month on lulu, I am sure your parents would appreciate if you gave them that money once in a while. Time to grow up, lovelies! You certainly don't want your family resenting you.

My two cents:

I think was has set people off is that luluaddict said

"Also, I can't find much on the income statistics of Oprah's audience but I've got to believe it's not super affluent. I think I've read that Lululemon's typical customer is a professional woman with an income of $85,000. "

Read that carefully. She "thinks" Oprah's audience is not super affluent. She "thinks" she read that Lululemons typical customer is...

The problem I had when I read this is that she is blurring the line between fact and opinion. I have absolutely no problem with opinions, but I do have a problem when "facts" are quoted as gospel and they may or may not be true. I think the post would have been better received if luluaddict had actually researched the the items she "thinks" are true.

Whatever.

I did think the challenge from Anon 8:59 was funny.

I'm sure there are many students who take advantage of their parents, and it is probably their parents' fault in raising them that way...but in no way did myself nor the other student who posted on this blog suggest that we were using our parents' money to buy lululemon...we both have jobs, get SCHOLARSHIPS for tuition (meaning, we study our asses off and achieve high grades), and for me, exercise is important to me so I will invest money in exercise clothes. I barely spend money on designer jeans, makeup, or perfume, hair products, spa, anything. Please don't assume that all students who live at home are spoiled brats. Many of us are just being sensible...it is foolish to pay rent if you can stay with your parents, when studying in the same city.

Ashalicious said...

I think that maybe everyone should just learn to accept each other's opinions. Lululemon does have a target audience, that is fact. That doesn't mean that just because you don't fit the "mold" that you shouldn't wear lululemon. When lululemon does their marketing they understand this is the "target audience." I think that we all have opinions. I tend to agree that the way they showed the lululemon pants that they did look very mom like. They didn't look anything like an athletic person. The company preaches sweating once a day and I would guess most athletes are the ones who shop there. But again, this is just my assumption and opinion. Maybe we should all just accept each other's perception of what lululemon is as a company and who appeals to them.

Ashalicious said...

Even my husband who funds my lululemon collection even said that most women who watch Oprah are Mommies who probably have never worked out a day in their life so they probably aren't going to rush out and buy them. Most people who don't work out find that I'm crazy that I think lululemon is fairly priced for the quality recieved.

Here's a link to a Time magazine article about Oprah's demographic and influence. It does negate a lot of the "facts" posed here.

That article discusses the visitors to her web site. There are demographic differences between people who who watch the tv show and people who are on the web. I'm pretty sure the web skews higher in education and income than the tv audience.

You should not assume that all students living at home are spoiled and taking advantage of their parents. I posted earlier about being a student who can afford lulu, i pay my own tuition, I pay bills even though i live with my parents, i buy food own my own car. and can still afford to have lulu. I work very hard for all i have and you shouldnt be so judgemental my mother would kill me if i spent all that money on clothes and lived off of her. It is smart to live at home as a student if your in the same city as your parents, tuition is expensive enough.

I like the fact that Lulu targets thin women. And hey: why shouldn't they be? If you're overweight, you have something to aspire to. The last thing Lulu wants is herds of fat women stuffing themselves into Groove Pants, parading all over Disneyworld. No thanks. I don't want to be associated with that.

I read this post earlier this morning and managed to walk away unoffended, thinking nothing of it. Later I read another post about the response this one got, so I came back to read all the comments.

I don't watch Oprah, and don't follow her list of favorites. These pants being on her list does not make me want to buy them. Especially when shown with a shirt tucked into them :) I typically buy lululemon for the running clothes, not for lounge wear. But others may be influenced. Especially when women's interest & health magazines begin to print articles listing Oprah's faves.

I'm not sure that I fall within Lululemon's target demographic (income-wise), however, I will also agree that my local Lululemon store is in a very affluent area, joining the likes of other expensive stores, targeted to a certain audience: Ann Taylor, Kate Spade, Bluemercury, Origins, Pierre Deux, and many small expensive boutique clothing stores. While located across the street from a University, the shopping is clearly not targeted to the typical college student.

I didn't view Luluaddict's post to be ageist or offensive; merely stating an opinion.

Anonymous said...

@Anon 2:27- I agree that lulu shouldn't care who is wearing their clothes as long as they make a profit. I disagree that lulu's 12 is equivalent to gap's 16! Gap's 16 hip measurement is 45.5 inches. Lulu's 12 hip measurement is 43. Almost 3 inches difference. Lulu, like all clothing with spandex tends to fit skin tight. For reference, I wear size 6 jeans, but wear 10 in lulu and all other athletic wear.

I really think lulu needs to make a 14/16 size because there are many athletic women who are very muscular, and they wear this size. I thin lulu's clothing mpotivates people to get out and be active. The cute active wear would inspire out of shape people at size 4 (no being skinny is not synonomus with being fit or strong!) or size 14 to get active and be healthier.

Hey All,

I didn't mean to set off a fire storm with my "time to grow up, lovelies" comment. It was sort of a self depricating joke, because I am the girl who is known to have nice things because she has access to mummy and daddy's credit cards. I know there are a lot of people like this, and I was simply tring to remind those like me to give the parents a break! I have a dry sense of humor- maybe I should have added a LOL after that comment!

On a serious note to the student who "studies her ass off to achive high grades", get off your high horse, babe. Do you know how many people got straight A's in school? It is ok to be proud, but tons of people have the same marks as you do! And unless you got a full ride scholarship, there will still be some residual fees to pay from that 12-50 thousand dollars per year in tuition, and I doubt you are paying all of your tuition not covered by scholarships because if you are a full time student you probably don't have time for a full time job with all of that "studying your ass off" that you do. I don't intend for this to be a personal attack, nor do I think that you are a spoiled brat. I just want to know what super awesome scholarships you have, because I could use them to pay my tuition so that I could stop mooching off of my parents!

I know this is off topic sort of. Thank you for reading my rant!

Hey "girl who is known to have nice things because she has access to mummy and daddy's credit cards",

I got a full ride scholarship into university, from having a high average in high school while doing a full IB program. It's paying for the first 4 years. I've gotten 3-4K every year thus far from getting straight A's. My summer job earns me $10k. My tuition and books cost me about $6k a year. You do the math.

You may have the best intentions but your remarks certainly come off as being a personal attack...I also sense a little bit of bitterness, am I right, babe? The scholarships are out there...you just have to look for them. But I guess if mommy and daddy are giving you their credit card then there isn't much motivation to do so.

Hi Anon student girl,

Congrats on getting a full ride scholarship! That is awesome! I honestly say that without one bit of sarcasm or bitterness. I was off put by your "I got a scholarship because I studied my ass off" commentbecause I felt you were being too boastful, but clearly things can sound a lot bitchier in writing when you can't hear someone's tone of voice. A lot of people study hard and get good grades. I graduated with a 5.0 on an AP program.

I am in no way bitter or jealous towards you, but I am bitter towards the entire college system, because it is so competitive, and it seems like everyone HAS to go to college now, and there is just so much greed in the system. 50K per year for tuition at private colleges, that is CRAZY! Plus, it is insane to me that colleges compare kids based on the tiniest little things- Oh student A did 10 more hours of community service than student B- let's take student A! I thought college was supposed to be about academics...

Anyhow, I honestly was not trying to offend you or hurt your feelings, as I said I have a dry sense of humor. I thought the comment about me needing to know where you got your got your scholarships so I could stop mooching off my parents would convey that I was joking. It sounds like both of our parents love us and support us heavily financialy. Once again, I am sorry if I hurt your feelings. Now get off the internet, and get back to studying your ass off, girl! Good luck in school! I hope you continue to do as well in university as you did in high school.

You are so lucky to live in Canada, y'all have Spencer Krug, okay, Spencer freakin' Krug. We have stupid Lady Gaga. So I am assiming that you don't get completely free education in Canada? In the US, everyone (even people like me who have traveled extensively in Canada) assume Canada has legal pot, no crime and free education. LOL!

Don't feel bad, we were both being silly. May the universe continue bring you more reasonably priced education and many pairs of groove pants!
