Lululemon Athletica reopens with love

Almost as touching than the crowds thronging Bethesda Lane Saturday morning in a yogic salute to departed colleague and friend Jayna Murray, was the newly renovated store's permanent tribute to her, a stained glass mosaic with the word "love" stretching over the entryway. We liked that the renovation wove her persona and memory so intrinsically into the store's new design. On Saturday morning Adam Pearlstein of Bethesda's Bikram Yoga led a one-hour yoga class and minute of silence to remember Murray, who was slain in the store, in one of most grisly murders Bethesda has seen. Murray's parents were present as the store reopened and though it was hard, they said they were glad they went to see the tribute to their daughter, Jayna. "Today is a day she's doing cartwheels in Heaven," her mother said. Though we were happy to be back shopping at the store on Sunday, we weren't ready to do cartwheels just yet. But we'll get there.
