“We’re pleased with our overall business results for the second quarter, as lululemon increasingly lives into its Omni potential. As trends around the world are shifting to working and sweating from home with an increased focus on health and wellness, we believe 2020 is likely an inflection point for retail and for lululemon. We are cautiously optimistic with regard to the second half of the year as we continue to navigate the uncertain environment.”

Lululemon currently isn’t providing guidance for 2020 due to the novel coronavirus. Many other companies are also withholding outlooks during the pandemic.
