When you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good, you go the extra mile. So at lucy, using a mix of high-tech fabrics, precise fit and a stylist's eye, we create gear with the design, color and feminine details that can only be found in our stores. It's fashion forward performance apparel that inspires athletic women.
Headquartered in Alameda, California, lucy has charted an unconventional path to success. Debuting in 1999 as a strictly online retail store, the company shifted its focus to a bricks-and-mortar retail chain in 2001. Today, the company operates as both an online retail store and a chain of more than 60 stores across the United States. In 2007, lucy was acquired by VF Corporation (vfc.com), a global leader in lifestyle branded apparel with a diverse portfolio of brands such as Vans, The North Face and 7 for all Mankind.
