Go to a camping site, their little shops are allowed to open. Isn't there a small supermarket on Lausanne station, that would also be open.

Shopping hours at Easter

How about a gas station that sells groceries etc? There must be one or more near you that are open tomorrow (today even)...

I'd be surprised if everywhere is closed.
I believe that at least some Migros stores - the larger ones - are open. Check out their website.

If you don't find one near you, there are now many petrol stations with an attached mini-markt. I would like to think a basic like sugar should be found.

[unless of course, you want to make brown meringues - which is a whole other story]

Supermarkets in main railway stations are usually open over public holidays and Sundays.

It would probably help if you stated where you are in Vaud.

I'd try the little Coop in Lausanne train station (I think the Nyon is closed, but if it is open I saw sugar there, there isn't really anything open in Morges, Aubonne as far as I know), the Geneva Cornavin train shop is closed for recontrustion, too.
