Life and elegance with Erin Hicks – Sooke Information Mirror

– Words by Lia Crowe Photography by Darren Hull

The definition of good style means for Erin never trying to be someone else, knowing yourself and letting your own personality shine through in your style.

“My mom always had great style,” says Erin. “She always looks great no matter what she’s doing. She has greatly influenced my style over the years. She taught me to take care of myself, to be proud of my looks and not save clothes for special occasions – wear what you want and feel great every day.”

When asked what’s the best lesson she’s learned in the past five years, Erin says, “It’s to take care of yourself. Being a mom of three busy kids can be all consuming and draining, so you always have to make time to take care of yourself.”

Lululemon said Thursday it called earlier Amazon Managing Director Michael Aragon as Chief Executive Officer of his home gym, Mirror.

Aragon will also oversee Lululemon’s broader digital fitness endeavors, the retailer said in a press releasewho reports directly to the CEO of Lululemon, Calvin McDonald. The changes will take effect on January 17th.

Lululemon bought Mirror for $ 500 million in 2020. In September, then CEO Brynn Putnam resigned from their role. She founded the company in 2016.

Aragon was previously the chief content officer of Twitch, Amazon’s live streaming business. He also held positions at Sony groupto expand the PlayStation network.

In this new role, Aragon will face an increasingly competitive market for connected fitness equipment. Among the rivals are Peloton, Tonal, Hydrow and many others. The category exploded with interest as gyms temporarily closed and consumers looked for ways to exercise at home during the pandemic.

In December, Lululemon lowers its forecast for Mirror sales in fiscal year 2021 between $ 125 million and $ 130 million. Previously, the company had expected sales of $ 250 million to $ 275 million for the device, which will be wall-mounted and allow users to take cardio and other exercise classes.

Separately, Lululemon will oppose a. defend legal action filled in by Nike on Wednesday, which Mirror accused of infringing some of Nike’s patents.

Lululemon responded to the lawsuit by stating that Nike’s patents are “too broad and invalid. We believe in our position and look forward to defending it in court.”

Lululemon shares were unchanged in after-hours trading, closing the day up 1.7% at $ 368.77.
