Mother’s Day is Coming!

May 9th is Mother’s Day – are you ready? If you’re not, let LoveSac help you out. We can speak from personal experience – our mothers love ’em – that our products are a hit with mom. The following are our top recommendations to keep Mom happy on Mothers Day:

PHUR FEET: Reflexologists tell us that feet have a direct connection to everything – that means that they are a straight line to your mothers heart. Our soft and fuzzy Phur Feet are sure to tickle hers and show her that you want her to be able to kick back and relax, too. Come check them out – they come in our Silver Mink and Black Crock Phur styles.

I WANT YOUR BODY PILLOW: Okay, okay, so maybe don’t tell your mom the whole name. But this pillow is probably the best she’ll ever have: it has a dream fiber core, a unique fiber that helps to circulate temperature so that in the summer months, cuddle time never means overheating. And with a soft down fluff over that, and the sweet washable microsuede cover it comes with, we see it as a hit with moms everywhere.

FOOTSAC BLANKET: Our FootSacs come in all of the colors of our Sacs and Sactionals, and are just as comfy, to boot. The best part? They have a sneaky pocket for your feet, so they’ll never get cold while you’re watching a movie. We think mom will approve!

SACTIONALS & COVERS: A whole set up is of course great for you over achievers (or middle children seeking lost attention), but we’ve found that moms appreciate a new set of covers just as much. We suggest some of the jazzy colors and patterns from custom order, but you of course can decide for yourself. (Check out the Antoinette’s – they’re awesome!)

Still confused on what to get your mother? Stop in the store and let our expert Sacr’s help you out! For those of you hunting for a deal, make sure you also stop in to see what we have left on sale… trust us, it’s pretty good!

Happy Earth Day! Green out and Sac out.

At LoveSac, we’ve been supporting Green for awhile now. Aside from the fact that all of our Sacs are immensely versatile (you can change the covers to suite your needs, instead of getting rid of the entire piece of furniture) our Sactionals can also be changed and added onto as necessary. Let’s not forget the fact that the Sacs are guaranteed for two whole lifetimes: it’s definitely not crap furniture with forced obsolescence that will break and cause you to buy more (and put your old crap in a landfill) in a few years.

Well, did you know LoveSac has actually been recognized for our more verdant initiatives? Check out Shawn talking about it himself:

Pretty awesome, huh? Take it upon yourself this earth day to eco-ize your media room with something enviro-conscience – at the very least, do it because the best way to end a day outside frolicing and enjoying nature is by plopping into your very own SuperSac. (Hopefully in the EARTH microsuede cover. We’re too punny for our own good!)



THREE LITTLE BIRDS ECONOMIC RELIEF SALE

Also: The “Everything little thing’s gonna be alright” Economic Relief Sale, coming to you now at your lovable Mayfair LoveSac store.

Stop on in for details! The sale includes some crossovers from the weekend, poor orphaned covers ready to save you money in exchange for a kind, loving home. We’ve also added some rare limited addition covers that will never be seen again at LoveSac. That’s right, everyone: you can have a one of a kind Sac and get your cover for a deal. Keep in mind all cover discounts are only valid with purchase of a full priced matching Sac insert.

C’mon, pick up yours in time for Earth Day. There’s no better way to relax in the sun than in a Sac you’ve pulled out into the lawn. (Remember, you can machine wash your covers afterward!) Stop in or call our store at (414) 774-5683 for details.

LoveSac’s Guide to Becoming Cool (And attracting all the cute babes)

The sun is beating down and the seasons are changing; soon fickle spring will become rockstar summer. It’s now the time of year when you need to become cool (both literally and metaphorically), and lucky for you, we’re here to help with our Guide to Becoming Cool (and attracting the cutest babes).

STEP ONE: You need to have a place of your own to be cool in. For maximum cool points, this is a place of your own; however, having some equally cool room mates is acceptable. We will also accept those of you who might still live at home but have domain over a room, basement, attic that can be cooled out to sustain your rockstar lifestyle. Unacceptable are those of you who are mooching and living on your friend’s lame hand-me-down-from-grandma couch. If that applies to you, please reassess your situation at once.

STEP TWO: Sac out your pad! You need at least one Sac, sized City or larger (and mega ultra points for the BigOne), and a decent Sactional set up. Let’s say, at least our 2 Base, 4 Side LoveSeat Sactional set up. Then you have enough for you and a few friends! Keep in mind that covers are always a good idea to keep your cool lasting longer: nothing says lame more than stained furniture. All our covers are machine washable!

STEP THREE: Get in ideal summer condition. Keep in mind, this doesn’t mean we’re promoting six pack abs and bulging biceps. If you’re happy with your body, that’s pretty cool already. But if you’re not, feel free to do the work out all LoveSac staff practices: The Sac fluff/Sactional arrangement rally. It’s easier than it sounds: simply keep your Sac well fluffed (using full rotation fluffing) at ALL TIMES and make sure that you rearrange your Sactional daily. It may not seem like a lot, but trust us, it’s enough to get your blood pumping! And for those of you worried about getting a summer tan? Spare your skin and simply invest in a light cover. We recommend Eskimo Phur: unless you’re pale as a polar bear, it’s almost white color will make anyone look tan.

STEP FOUR: Become an excellent entertainer. This means having a great music selection with a little something for everyone- check out our summer playlist for ideas – and always having something to offer. This can be drinks, food, boardgames, or a cleverly organized dance off/four square competition. Personally, I like to provide food, seeing as how when I’m not slinging Sacs or at school, I’m in the kitchen. It’s important when cooking for guests that your food be unique, but still safe, and that almost everyone can eat it. As a vegetarian dating a carnivorous picky-eater, I can attest to this sometimes being a difficult task. For maximum cool, I recommend something like Fat Free Vegan Kitchen’s Peach Upside Down Cake. Not only is it delicious and easy, but we think the colors would really pop if eaten on a Taupe or Chocolate Rhino Phur cover.

STEP FIVE: Wait for the cute babes. Like the one pictured! Hey now – what kind of babes did you think we were talking about?



Moving Season is Upon Us

As everyone who lives in a heavily college-age populated city (or just a city where most people rent instead of own) April through August is Moving Season. People are changing room mates, moving to bigger spaces, smaller spaces, and newer spaces.  With all of this moving comes the treasure trove of abandoned furniture left outside of houses; some is left because it’s broken or quite simply junk, some is not needed anymore, and some, quite sadly, must be abandoned because it quite simply has no way to be transported from one residence to another.

Here at LoveSac, we want to make sure that you never have to abandon our furniture curb-side. Our Sactionals are quite potentially the most mover-friendly couches every invented, with each one breaking into just two units: bases and sides that make up everything. And when you break them up that small, they’re not even heavy! You can even fear not if your dream Sactional plan for one house is too big for your newest space; with our room planner tool you can practice moving around your pieces into a setup that is sure to work in your new living room. And if all else fails – there’s just that one extra piece you don’t know what to do with – they do store easily. Maybe you could even find a secondary use for it; we here at Mayfair imagine you could work an extra side or base frame into Design Sponge’s DIY Book-strap Side Table in lieu of a row of books. Or get extra creative and use a full base as bench-style dining room seating.

As for the Sacs, you’re asking? Well, as shown in this picture sent to us by a sister LoveSac store, Sacs stuff very easily. That, my friends, is a fully fluffed SuperSac shoved into a Nissan. If you’re not much of a stuffer, we also sell Sport Utility Covers (SUC’s for short) which are thick vinyl covers with straps and handles (perfect for taking Sacs outdoors!) that, when pulled and pushed on, will condense your most comfortable of furniture to a third of its size. For moves that aren’t just a few blocks a way and are really tight on available space, try a Ship Kit; with the help of Shop Vac, it will bring your Sac down to roughly half of its size. Should you be lucky enough to have a truck that can accommodate a Sac with no extra help, be sure to secure your load, lest you end up like this guy.

So there you have it, our two cents on the best way to move a Sac. Think you have a better way? Or a hilarious moving story? Better yet – a ridiculous picture? Or maybe you have a solution for what to do with a Sac or Sactional piece that you can’t use quite at the moment? Send us your best shot to either mayfairmgr@lovesac.com or leave it in a comment!



California Dreamin’… of the new LoveSac Location!

Finally, Milwaukee can be California Dreamin’ for a reason other than weather envy; today marks the opening of a LoveSac store in the Bay Area. Santa Clara at Valley Fair mall, to be more precise. For those of you who might remember our store opening about five years ago, you can remember that store openings are always, without fail, a good time. There are bumpin’ tunes, tons of people, and our founder and Chief Sac, Shawny D. Not to mention, of course, the huge deals going on throughout the day. At Valley Fair, it’s going to be a 75% count down sale! (First person gets 75% off, the next 74%, until we’re all the way up to 1%. Hey, a deal is still a deal.)

While we’ll be playing with our new Nooder puppies and holding down the fort at Mayfair, any of you reading from a well deserved with vacation or with friends and family in the Bay Area should get over to Valley Fair and check it out. We promise nothing less than a good time!
