Canadian #fitgear giveaway | Mandala Sky yoga and lounge wear

I live in fitness, yoga and lounge wear and am always on the lookout for new brands to try and share with my readers!

Living in Canada, however, has its drawbacks when it comes to online shopping 🙁

The majority of online fitness retailers call the US home and despite Free Trade, the combined costs of (1) the slightly weaker buying power of the Canadian dollar (about 98 cents to the US dollar), (2) the excessive cost of shipping to Canada (I was once quoted $35 shipping on a $25 shirt!) and (3) the duty (read “tax”) that the Canadian government slaps on imported goods (everything but yarn; yarn, for some reason, is thankfully exempt…), I often ending up clicking away from my favourite websites with un-purchased items still in my basket.

(Although if I know that I’ll be travelling state-side in the near future, I’ll sometimes order and have things shipped to my hotel. Nothing like arriving at your destination with new clothes waiting for you!)

Imagine my delight when I recently discovered Mandala Sky yoga and lounger wear! Stylish and feminine with beautiful drape, figure-flattering details and MADE IN CANADA!


Turns out that Mandala Sky is also native to my home province! Designed on Salt Spring Island by the uber-talented Sky Marcano and manufactured locally in Vancouver, British Columbia, Mandala Sky is a small, but growing, ‘Made in Canada’ company; exactly the type of business that I LOVE to support!

Here’s me in my Hope Tunic and Leggings (95% Rayon from Modal, 5% spandex) and Jolene Jacket (66% Rayon from Bamboo, 28% Cotton, 6% Spandex), running from yoga class to coffee with the girls to the grocery store to after school pickup!

Mandala Sky yoga wear

I love the feel of the fabric; so soft and luxurious feeling.

I love the splashy details; both whimsical and organic.

I love the long silhouette of the jacket; body skimming without being tight.

I love that Sky is willing to send a pair of the Hope Leggings AND a Jolene Jacket (in your choice of colours) to one lucky reader of my blog! Your very own Mandala Sky yoga and lounge wear!

All you need to do to enter is visit Mandala Sky online and leave a comment below telling me which piece is your favourite (I challenge you to choose just one!) and where you’d wear it!

Extra entries can be earned (via the Raffelcopter widget below) by:

Contest is open to both Canadian and US residents and closes at 11:59 pm Friday, March 29th, PST. The winner will be contacted via email the following day and asked for clothing size and colour preferences. Note that because the Jolene Jacket is made to order the winner can expect to wait 3-4 weeks before delivery of their prize.

Disclaimer: While Mandala Sky provided me with samples of their yoga wear to review and giveaway, as always, all comments and complete adoration for the clothing line are all mine!

  2. I love the simple white tank top. 🙂

  3. Wow….these are sooo nice and Tamara it looks great on you!!! I would go for the jacket too….I usually wear tops a little more fitted to show off the better half of my body. 😉

  7. I love the Sunshine leggings and would love to wear them to the gym or out for a run. They are just a little different then the usual plain black leggings. The jacket is really nice too!

    Hi ! Brand new follower of your blog. I visited the sky marcano site and am loving the options there. I think my favorite piece from the site is Molly pant in plum. I love the jacket you featured in plum too! Maybe I just like plum? lol. I really like the design on the Mandala sky cotton capri pants too! Very nice clothes there and they look comfy!! It is all about the comfort! Thank you for the review!

  9. I like the wunderzip. Maybe because its called the wunderzip…I love all the mandala sky gear…I’ve been drooling over much of it for quite some time;)

  10. Danielle says:

    Love everything – especially the cut and style of the cotton capri! Perfect for kickboxing class, walk on the seawall, and coffee afterwards.

    • Jenn, I wore it all day today! The inside feels like terry cotton; so soft and warm. It even matches a scarf that I bought recently!

  17. I really like the Sunshine Legging because I live in black tights! I have to wear black athletic bottoms to work, so I’m always looking to add more black bottoms, especially ones with little pops of flair!

    I love the daylight tunic. it looks very flattering especially for those of lacking the 6 pack abs. I love the color and uniqueness of the two different sleeve lengths. I also love the sunshine leggings because they are cute and I live in leggings.

    • Steph, shirring is my best friend! So flattering and forgiving… hides those little bumps and lumps so well…

  19. The Jolene jacket is my favorite and I would wear it everywhere!!!
