Lovesac Mayfair's Blog


You know the sale. Now what?

You just heard about our awesome Black Friday sale – 30% off in the first hour we’re open! – and if you didn’t, you should probably scroll to the post beneath this one and check it out. Undoubtedly, you’re super psyched about the amazing discount you’re about to get (once you drag yourself out of bed and into line the morning after Thanksgiving). But what do you do in the meantime?

First and foremost, figure out what you want. The lines on Black Friday are notoriously long – last year, ours was the second largest in Mayfair and went all the way down to the Body Shop (three stores away, for those of you unfamiliar with Mayfair). Because of this, we try very hard to get customers in and out as quickly as possible – but we can only do that if you have an idea of what you are looking at before hand. There will be lovely staff members available to help you, but you need to have some idea of color and size if you want to be home before the last of the leftovers have been devoured.

How do you figure out what you want? Stop into the store! Give us a call (414.774.5683)! Those of you with telephonophobia, feel free to e-mail us or even leave us a comment on the blog. Keep in mind, however, we are closed on Thursday (to devour turkeys and tofurkeys of our own) so get in touch with us as soon as possible. You can even shop around on the website, but please keep in mind – LoveSac.com is generally about 25% more expensive than what you will pay in-store.

What do you do once you know what you want? Set your alarm. To get the best deals, you need to get up and get here during the first hour the mall is open – 5:00am – 5:59am – and we don’t want anyone oversleeping! Plan out your outfit for the big day, organize a balanced breakfast. Cooking for Thanksgiving? Toss together a quiche from the leftovers and heat it up Friday morning.

Good luck everybody – we’ll see you bright and early Friday!



The moment you’ve been waiting for… the Black Friday Sale!

Are you ready for the best sale of the year? We certainly hope so – and this year, it’s going to be great. From the first hour we’re open (5:00am – 5:59am) you’ll be getting 30% off everything*.

That’s right – we said 30% off everything*. For a store that does not often run sales, this is a pretty big deal. You can get the sale on Sacs, Covers, Other Comfy Stuff (blankets, pillows, Nooder and friends, slippers), and even Sactionals. That’s right: you can get your dream living room at one of the best rates you’ll ever see in our store, all for the first hour of Black Friday. And of course, you can’t forget the limited edition packages. SuperSac Cow Phur Packages will be $599, while CitySac Cow Phur Packages will be $499.

Once the clock strikes 6am, the amazing savings will be over, but the savings themselves won’t be quite gone: you’ll be able to get 10% off everything* until close of business at 10pm.

Now, for all the nitty gritty details. First of all, as you can imagine, there are going to be a lot of people who want to get in on this sale. It’s in your best interesting to get up and get here as early as possible: stores in the mall open at 5am, but Mayfair will likely be open much earlier (we expect lines to start forming around 4am, if not beforehand), so plan ahead! As your friendly sales associates, we’re going to try as hard as possible to get you in and out of the store as quickly as possible, but sometimes lines might not accommodate. That being said, we will be taking measures to ensure that if you are in the store (or at least in the line for the store) before your sale hour ends, you will get the sale you were waiting for (even if you’re not rung up at the register during that sale). Likewise, we will be equally as strict with those of you who are late. Think your sixth grade teacher strict: no exceptions. If you get into line at 6.01, you will unfortunately be included in the 10% off group, so just remember, better early than late!

The second nitty gritty detail is in terms of inventory. Sac buyers, almost all of you will be able to take your inserts home with you same day. Those of you who won’t, we have more inserts on their way and you’ll be able to snag ‘em in the next few weeks. Sactional buyers: we know you, we love you, we appreciate you, but the unfortunate price you have to pay for the most amazing Sactional Sale ever is that you will not be able to pick your product up same day. Don’t worry – we have oodles in stock – we just don’t have the time or staff to get all of that delivered on such a busy day. In your case we’ll be getting in touch with you all to set up separate pick up times in the next few weeks.

Now for covers and the dreaded * that you saw next to ‘everything.’ Covers are a hot commodity that we are always short on, and now is no exception. Some of you will be able to take your covers same day (on a first come/first served basis), and others of you will have to wait; however, we will not stop you from preordering your covers to get the sale prices. You might just have a little bit of a wait, which again is a small price to pay for a great deal. If you’re concerned on getting product for the Holidays, just ask your friendly Sales Rep (we will be the lovely ladies in the LoveSac shirts, for the record) and she will be able to help you out. As far as the dreaded * goes, we do have to inform you:

*Discounts do not apply to Custom Order Covers from any of the four Custom Order books or Top Grain Leather for 6 Series. You are more than welcome to purchase any of these at full price, though, keeping in mind you can still get your inserts (Sac or Sactional) with the discount. Want a better deal on leather? Consider going to 5 Series Black Leather, which is included in the 30% off!

Sounds pretty great, right? We can guarantee that this is the best deal you’ll get all year long (and probably all next year long, too), so start making your selections on what you want to get and setting your alarms now, folks. Remember, if you have any questions on product or the sale, please give us a call at 414.774.5683 or e-mail at mayfair@lovesac.com. You can even leave a comment on our blog and we’ll try to get back to you. We’ll do our best to help you during any business hours (and even some non business ones when the blog is concerned). Other than that, rest while you can and we’ll see you on Friday!



INTRODUCING MADE IN AMERICA

Have you ever wondered what happens when you come into LoveSac, browse through the Pre-Made Cover Swatches and… find absolutely nothing that you want?

Have no fear! For those with particular, Colorful, Discerning, Fierce, or Brilliant tastes, we have four new swatch books, all of which comprise our brand new Made in America line of Custom Order Covers. The new books come with new materials: everything from Microsuede to Velvet and Chenille, and even our new Indoor-Outdoor covers (for those looking to take your Sactionals on an adventure in the Great Outdoors – or just your backyard).

Covers vary in price based on what material you are looking for, but with new colors, patterns, and textures, we guarantee you’ll love them no matter what. For those of you interested in custom covers, keep in mind that they take about 6 – 8 weeks to get in stock (though they ship directly to you, so a repeat visit to the store is not necessary for those of you dreading a drive).

Ready to be Brilliant? Colorful? Fierce? Discerning? Stop in and drool over the new books with us – you won’t be disappointed!

For those of you waiting on Black Friday Sales, we can offer this hint: Custom Covers are (unfortunately) never included in our sales. But that doesn’t mean you can’t score a great price on your insert when you order a cover! Stay tuned for full Black Friday details coming out on Monday.



Let the Holiday Shopping Begin: A Starters Guide to Early Buying

We know, we know – the last of the turkey’s haven’t even gone into hiding post T-Day, leaves are still clinging to the trees, snow is the last thing on your mind. And yet, there are still people who insist on taking care of holiday shopping before ‘December’ is even the main month on the calendar. While we most definitely understand the urge to save your purchasing priorities until last minute, at LoveSac we strongly support early bird shoppers – or at the very least, early bird planners.

At LoveSac, purchases require planning. Let’s face it: Sacs are big. Sactionals can be anything you want, but that still requires a certain degree of information as to what you might need. Measuring your space and at least window shopping early on can help you narrow down your options and find what you really need, allowing you to quickly take advantage of sales that come later in the season (like Black Friday* for example).

Sometimes, you have to ask questions. Curious about what Herringsuede entails? Wondering how on earth Sactionals work? Unsure about the size most often purchased by college students (aka, your puppy-eyed child)? Call the stores you’re interested early on, and don’t be afraid to ask them anything and everything – this will help you to get a feel for what you want to make informed decisions at any stage of your holiday shopping. At LoveSac Mayfair, you can reach us at 414.774.5683 and we’re always glad to help.

Learn about what’s in stock. At LoveSac especially, things go out of stock quickly. We tend to see most of our inventory gone by early December – if you’re planning on having product in your hand on Christmas day, make sure you plan to purchase at least the cover early on, if not the entire set up. You can always call to check on stock levels or ask about what we anticipate having – but remember, our guesses are always subject to change.

Ready, guys? Get out there and get gift hunting!

Same old Sacs, New Searches, New Questions

?

So we’ve mentioned this before, but it’s definitely worth reiterating. Because WordPress as a blog host is so awesome, they give us the (slightly creepy) feature of being able to see what you all searched or clicked on to get to our blog.

This is pretty awesome, and most of the searches are pretty typical: “What time is mayfair open?,” “CitySac,” “LoveSac Spade” (we hope this means our love puppy and not the tool!), etc, etc. When we see searches like that, we can rest assured that your found your answer in our blog and are now happy and satisfied. However, some of your searches are a little bit harder to answer and you may not have found what you need in our little blog.

For example, the search for “CitySac in Sheepskin” – sorry folks, the super amazing Sheepskin Cover is only for the SuperSac. “Find a zebra lovesac cover” is also probably not covered in this blog – although it’s something easily found in our custom order books! “Movie Sac prices” you probably found online somewhere, but keep in mind, our prices are different than the website. “LoveSac set up help” is somewhat addressed here, but our posts only go so far. If you have a question like that – or any of the other mostly unanswered ones – feel free to give us a call at 414.774.5683. Even if you’re a LoveSac customer from States away, we’re happy to help you out with whatever you need. Not a phone person? Leave a comment on any of our blogs, message us on our Facebook, or e-mail us at mayfairmgr@lovesac.com We’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible, and trust us, when it comes to LoveSac, we’re a much more engaging and knowledgeable source than the world wide web.

And just as a p.s. – whoever searched “list of mayfair babes” – we’re not sure if or how we could help you with that, but we’re flattered that the search led you here. Good luck!



So you think you want the BigOne…

It’s your lucky weekend, then. For July 4th weekend we’re offering one of the best sales on an individual size ever – while supplies last, of course. We have The BigOne and Two Squattomans in Earth Microsuede all for $649.99. For those of you who don’t have prices in front of you, that’s over $450 of savings.

If you think you want a BigOne, hurry up and get in the stores on July 4th weekend, because much like prime firework watching seats, this is something that will go fast to those who are most dedicated and devoted to the Sac.



What happens when Dad’s Buy Sacs….

Father’s Day is here, and we all hope that you are out celebrating with Dad. (If you’re not celebrating, we hope you’re grabbing a Sac for yourself and watching the World Cup – go go Cote D’Ivoire! Sorry Brazil fans.) We do feel that we need to issue a warning, though. Sometimes purchasing a LoveSac can thrill Dad so much that he starts putting his new prized possession over important things – i.e., the loving family that brought him into the store.

Check this picture from the Happy Father’s Car that just left our store:

She’s squished a bit early – after she got in an older sister and Dad’s fiance piled in behind her with Dad up front in the shortened driver’s seat. We give them an A+ for fitting a BigOne in the crammed car! That’s devotion!
