Lululemon Pulls Yoga Pants — Too Sheer
Lululemon Athletica will be hurt by a large recall of black yoga pants that were unintentionally see-through. “The ingredients, weight and longevity qualities of the pants remain the same, but the coverage does not, resulting in a level of sheerness in some of our women’s black Luon bottoms that falls short of our very high standards,” the company said in a statement late Monday. “We want you to Down Dog and Crow with confidence and we felt these pants didn’t measure up.” Lululemon said the recall, which amounts to 17% of all women’s pants sold in its stores, will cause shortages of this staple and have a significant impact on its financial results. Before the recall, the company said it was on track for an 11% increase in sales at stores open at least a year, with revenue in the first quarter expected to come in between $350 million and $355 million. Now it expects only a 5% to 8% sales gain, and revenue of between $333 million and $343 million. Oh well. [KTLA]

Danny Boyle Turns Down British Knighthood: "It's Just Not Me"
Danny Boyle will remain a man of the people. The British director of "Slumdog Millionaire" and "127 Hours" turned down a knighthood for his role staging the spectacular opening ceremonies at the 2012 London Olympics, he revealed in an interview.
