Lisa Binderow looks to grow NicePipes, her line of yoga inspired leg and arm warmers, with some help from the Sharks in episode 811. Binderow is a yoga enthusiast who was an employee of Yoga Works, a national yoga studio chain, as a trainer and program manager for 7 years. She started Nicepipes in 2014 after people asked about her leg and arm warmers.
As a New Yorker, Lisa frequently found herself running to the yoga studio in cold weather. She didn’t like the scratchy feel of wool leg and arm warmers – and her yoga clothes weren’t enough to keep off the chills of a New York winter. To solve her problem, she made arm and leg warmers out of yoga pants material.
Fellow yoga enthusiasts loved her creations and soon she was getting requests to buy them. That’s when she decided to open up shop and start NicePipes. To date, her products are selling well on Amazon. Arm warmers sell for $32, knee-high leg warmers are $42 and thigh-high leg warmers are $46. They come in a variety of colors and patterns and have the added benefit of providing mild compression.
Lisa likely wants a Shark’s help growing her business into big box retail. Will a Shark think these pipes are nice?
NicePipes Apparel Shark Tank Recap
Lisa will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. She’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but she’ll need to show them SHE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on NicePipes Apparel will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
