Hear, hear, Renman, well done!
I concur with your observations re: the distaff half's progress vis-avis ironwork. I have encouraged it at every opportunity and revel in the reaction invariably experienced when the girls discover the joy of acquiring strength.
Her: "Look! A muscle! I have muscles!"
Me: "See? I told you so. Now, six more."
Re: lululemon ass-pants. I have found said tights at more affordable prices at Value Village. I get funny looks when I browse the racks in the Ladies wear section, but fuck 'em if they can't take a joke. :)
Anyway, here's what I found, may you enjoy the fashion.
