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 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!



Sometimes, Floor Model Dreams Really Do Come True

It’s rare, but it happens – sometimes, LoveSac Floor Models real DO go on sale. After changing our floor set to the brand new holiday products (have you stopped in to see them yet?!), we have several Sactional set-ups available for the Floor Model Discount of 25% off. That’s right – 25% off. And did we mention that these particular floor models are all in Custom Order Covers from our brand new Originals Swatchbook?

The set-up includes a LoveSeat Set-Up (2 bases/4 sides) in Camel Tweed, a Deep LoveSeat Set-Up (2 bases/4 sides – flip the bases to make it a standard wide LoveSeat!) with Champagne Velvet Bases and Camel Tweed Sides, and an Arm Chair Set-Up (1 base/3 sides) in Champagne Velvet with 5 Series Tufted Tweed Ottoman. You need not buy the entire set up at once, but arrangements must be bought as they are (for example, the LoveSeats must be sold in the 2 bases/4 side configuration).

It’s a great way to start a set up that you can add on to later! And those of you who are Sac shopping, we do have several fluffed inserts* hanging out in our stock room – those get a 15% discount, a savings that could help you in putting more money towards the cover of your dreams.

Curious? Have questions about the product? Feel free to give the store a call at 414.774.5683. And those of you who are still waiting on the epic, amazing, always worth-while Black Friday Sale: stay tuned – the sale generally isn’t released until the week leading up to Black Friday!

*While new Sacs come vacuum packed – meaning they fit just about anywhere – fluffed Sacs can be quite large. Plan ahead and bring the larger vehicle (preferably one where the seats fold down).



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!

Last Day (of work) Before Black Friday!

Alright guys, so we released to you the amazing sale. Hopefully you have picked out what you want, you’re ready to get here before 6am so you can get 50% off, and all you have to worry about is if you want light meat, dark meat, or tofurkey tomorrow. If, however, you do have any questions, keep in mind that today is the last day before Black Friday that we as a store will be open, so call us (414.774.5683) or e-mail us (mayfairmgr@lovesac.com) with any and all questions! If it turns to Thanksgiving and you still have a question, you can try a blog comment or facebook message. There’s no guarantee that we’ll get back to you, but those will be the only sources we’ll have access to until the big day. Happy eating!



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!
