The Last Day Before the Big Day

This is it: the last day that we as a store are open before the Best LoveSac Sale of the Year (AKA, Black Friday). I know, I know, it’s awful that we abandon you in your furniture-planning hour of need, but as one of the only days off granted to us in retail – and one laden with food, family, and friends at that – we don’t feel too guilty. What does our day off mean for you?

Make sure you know what you want and are comfortable with all sale details NOW. Not sure what we’re talking about? Scroll down a few posts and check out the Black Friday Sale Details. Still have questions? Give us a call at 414.774.5683, shoot us an e-mail at mayfair@lovesac.com, or leave us a comment on this blog. After 9pm tonight, we will not be in the store to answer our phone, but we will do our best to check the blog comments and the e-mail (although blog comments are your best bet). Still concerned? Get in line early on Friday – our staffers will be making periodic announcements and line checks to see if anyone is in dire need of having a question answered.

Make sure you have a back up plan. If something is out of stock, we do not (except for very, very rare occasions) promise to have it back in stock before Christmas. In the case of package deals – like the Cow Phur for Super and City Sacs – once they’re gone, they are 100% sold out and we will not have the option to order you more. If you have your heart set on one of those, come EARLY or have a plan for a different Sac/Cover combo that you won’t mind taking home instead.

Make sure your alarms are set. The best part of the deal takes place between 5am – 5:59am. Have an alarm set and get here early – lines start forming at the door of our store around 4am. Coming in from out of town? Check the Mayfair Mall website for directions. Once you’re in the mall, we’re upstairs towards Macy’s, directly across from the Movie Theater. Not an early riser? You can still snag a small deal later in the day, too! (But trust us – if you get up early, your suffering will not be in vain.)

See you then!



The Black Friday Deal Countdown

Tuesday is rapidly approaching, to all of you devoted fans who have had your eyes glued on this blog. For those of you refreshing every ten minutes in hopes of an early leak, feel free to keep your eyes glued to this handy dandy countdown clock!



BLACK FRIDAY PREP: Waking Up And Getting There 101

Come on now, don’t get excited about a new blog post. You all know as well as we do that the Top Secret Amazing LoveSac Black Friday Sale Details don’t get released until Tuesday, November 23rd. If we released them any sooner, panic would ensue! They’re just that good! We do think, however, that once you’re done oogling the amazing package deals you should probably start training for the Big Day. As with all LoveSac Black Friday Sales (and in fact most Black Friday sales for any store), you will save the most money if you get here as early as possible.

With Mayfair Mall opening at 5am this year, that’s no easy feat. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled some key points to help you plan ahead and make sure you’re up and ready to go.

STEP ONE: PLANNING – So. You’ve decided to go Black Friday shopping. Obviously, you’re going to need a plan. Start with your list of stores, starting with the ones with the best deal (LoveSac) and working your way back based on sales. Then for each store, make sure you make a list of what you need! This will help the sales staff get you what you need and on your way to your next stop ASAP. Keep in mind if you’re an internet shopper that not all stores have all of the same products as their online counterpart. Be sure to call the store and verify that they’ll have (or be able to get) what you’re looking for. If you’re planning for your LoveSac sale, you can always just give us a call – our number here is 414.774.5683, and we are always happy to help you plan your purchase ahead of time to make Black Friday shopping easy, quick, and fun.

STEP TWO: HAVE A PLAN B – The awful truth is that sometimes, even if you get there really early, super popular items might be sold out. The benefit of shopping this early is that a lot of times the item can be ordered, but sometimes with really popular things they’re going to stay sold out until after the holidays. This is where a Plan B is important: you want to have a back up plan that is just as good, or be able to find a cute way of showing what you got in case you don’t have it right away. At LoveSac we have a cute assortment of KickSacs and Phurry Balls that can stand in as a miniature substitute should your favored size/cover/whatever becomes old out and you need a stand in gift until the main event arrives. Grab a few to hand out for fun, too!

STEP THREE: SCHEDULING – If you think this is the same as planning, you are dead wrong: this scheduling is directly about your sleep scheduling. Getting up at 5am is hard, and there a few ways to approach it. One is to go to bed REALLY early the night before. This isn’t hard even for night owls for a full tummy of Thanksgiving delights. Some people, though, fear over sleeping and go for the all nighter. We do not recommend this. Instead, opt for a cat nap and THEN get up to start your day. All sorts of sources (including the fabulous website, Planet Green) are coming out with information that naps are helpful for all kinds of things, including preventing cancer. Naps also make you less likely to be grumpy, and as your shopping companions and any sales representatives can attest, we prefer you not grumpy. Really.

STEP FOUR: FOOD – A healthy breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. Note: this does not mean a heavy breakfast. We recommend some scrambled eggs (protein keeps you going!), granola, yogurt, and for sure some fresh fruit or fruit juice. Vitamin C will keep you energized much longer than caffeine and sugar, so take it easy on the latter and load up on the citrus. This will also help to bolster your immune system against any of the people fighting the flu and the crowds at the same time.

STEP FIVE: GETTING READY – Make sure you take a shower in the morning. It’ll help to wake you up and make sure you have your wits about you! Guys, you don’t have too much else to do, but Ladies, we women of the Sac have always found that it helps us to get in the mode to start our day if we get ourselves completely ready to go out instead of just shuffling into the predawn light in pajamas. A nice outfit, done hair, makeup (if you wear it) will all make you feel like it’s time to get going and give you the energy you need to beat the crowds.

Then it’s just up to you to race to the mall and start soon to be huge line in front of your favorite store (LoveSac)! Remember to keep an eye on all the sales – make sure you check back Tuesday to get the dirt on ours – and make sure you have a great Black Friday! Happy shopping!



Devoted Fans, New Packages, and Butternut

Let me start by giving a huge shout out to our devoted fans: as you might guess, a company like LoveSac with such awesome, amazing products breeds a pretty strong following. People love their Sac. But perhaps none more than Sara, who came in today with her three kids and took home a Movie Lounger, Big One with Tat Package, new PillowSac cover, and a Squattoman. This is in addition to a SuperSac she already has at home (true Sac’rs know that Sacs need friends). If you don’t think that’s a big deal, we should maybe also mention that she took all of it home in one trip. All of the opened, floor model Sactional pieces home in one trip. With the BigOne. And three kids in the car. And all of her accessories. And maybe some football gear, too. Sorry for the bad lighting in the picture – the mall basement is no place for a photo shoot – but ya’ll can get the idea. Sara and her kids are supreme champs. And so to you, Sara, our hats go off.

In other news, we’re going to have to sound like a broken record: Courtney Cachet covers are coming. We’re sorry to keep saying it, but we’re just so excited! Especially because part of the new covers getting here means a new Package Deal for our PillowSac (just in time for back to school, College Kids!). It’ll be in the Grey Quilted Chenille (soooo durable) with some accessories and of course, the super awesome Rocker Frame. It’ll hopefully be in our store soon, and trust us, you’re going to want be here when it gets in. They’re so cool, they’re not going to last.

Speaking of awesome things – remember all the reasons that we gave you as to why Sara, customer extraordinaire, is awesome? Well add one more: the floor models she bought made room for 5 Series Butternut Sactionals. They’re drool worthy, but don’t just take my word for it. Come by and have a seat!



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!



THE SALE OF THE SEASON

…is finally ready to be released! All of our cleaning is finished, as you can see from the pictures below, and we’re finally ready to tell you about the great deal that will be starting Tuesday and running through May 31st.

Sales this big require a lot of preparation.

You’ve waited, you’ve wondered, and here it is. The ultimate sale.  Are you ready?

That’s right; our price point will start at $1. As we mentioned before, we’re phasing out a lot of old covers to make way for a whole new line. That means that all of the covers we’re phasing out will be on sale. That’s right – Earth and Moss Microsuede, Red and Black Velvish, and Mushroom and Espresso Plushsuede will all be leaving our store at ridiculously low prices, accompanied by some left over limited editions and odd balls we found from way back when. Here’s how it will work:

All Sac Inserts will be full price, and you must buy a Sac insert to get the sale price on the covers.

Any Premium Level cover (Microsuedes) with purchase of Sac Insert will be $50. Any Luxury Level (Plushsuede, Velvish) cover with purchase of Sac Insert will be $100

Limited edition Camo Covers, Sport Utility Covers, and really ancient covers (like the Brick Twill we have for KidSacs) will be $1 with insert purchase. Old Packages, like the Black Croc for Super and City, will be $50 with purchase of a Sac Insert. If you ask nicely, we can probably do something great with our MovieSac Tat Packages as well!

In the arena of accessories, TubeSacs and SodaSacs will be $5 with purchase of insert, and Squattoman Covers will be $20 with purchase of insert. We have a whole array of FootSacs to be discounted, as well!

So how does that break down for you? It means that you’ll be saving:

  • $50 on a KidSac and Cover
  • $50 on a GamerSac and Cover
  • $80 on a CitySac or PillowSac and Cover
  • $130-150 on a MovieSac and Cover
  • $180-200 on a SuperSac and Cover
  • $250-300 on a BigOne and Cover

And that’s not even including all of the $1 Covers available! Come get ’em quick because all covers are on a While-Supplies-Last basis. We open at 10am on Tuesday so get there quick, and give us a call if you have any questions! (414) 774-5683
