Vancouver, Canada-based Lululemon Athletica (Nasdaq: LULU) is a yoga-inspired, technical athletic apparel brand that has experienced a surge in popularity over the years. Its first standalone store opened in Vancouver in 2000, and the company went public in 2007.

Adding stores was one of the key pillars of the company’s growth plan.

Lululemon’s 3,802-square-foot store at Houston Premium Outlets will be next to Perry Ellis and across from Fossil. It will sell a variety of athletic wear, including performance shirts, shorts and pants, as well as lifestyle apparel and yoga accessories. It’s expected to open in late summer.

Toms outlet uk, a California-based maker of replica toms shoes, eyewear and more, also is expected to open its outlet store in late summer. The 2,689-square-foot store will be next to Banana Republic and will carry women’s, men’s, youth and tiny footwear, eyewear and bags. It will be one of the company’s first outlet stores in Texas, according to Simon.
