Shares of Lululemon moved higher in premarket trading following the report. (Click here for the latest quote.)
The company inched up its full-year earnings forecast to $1.86 to $1.91 per share from $1.85 to $1.90 and revenue forecast to $2.00 to $2.05 billion from $1.97 to $2.02 billion.
The profit forecast however was short of analysts' average estimate of $1.93 per share, while the revenue forecast compared with analysts' average estimate of $2.02 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
Shares of the company, which has posted better-than expected profit for at least the past eight quarters, were up 2.8 percent at $63.25 in light premarket trading.
Lululemon is in the midst of a turnaround to improve quality, expand its product line and solve supply-chain problems, while laying the groundwork for faster international growth.
Total comparable store sales rose 6 percent on a constant dollar basis in the first quarter ended May 3 from 1 percent a year earlier.
The company has been trying to grow its men's apparel business in sync with women's, while also offering more fashionable apparel.
Lululemon's earnings rose to $47.8 million, or 34 cents per share, in the quarter from $18.98 million, or 13 cents per share, a year earlier.
Revenue rose about 10 percent to $423.5 million.
Analysts on average expected a profit of 33 cents per share on revenue of $418.9 million.
Lululemon shares had risen more than 10 percent this year on the Nasdaq.
Wall Street had expected Lululemon to deliver quarterly earnings per share of 33 cents on revenue of $419 million, according to a Thomson Reuters consensus estimate.
Meanwhile, Lululemon has increasingly focused its attention on building and growing its male "athleisure" business. The company's "ABC" pants for men helped grow its male same-store sales by 16 percent in the fourth quarter last year, Lululemon's CEO Laurent Potdevin told investors.
Shares of Lululemon have outperformed the broader market, rising over 9 percent, despite a pullback in February after founder Chip Wilson announced he was stepping down from the company's board.
