LoveSac? Get Knit!

The second best moment of the LoveSac year (after Black Friday, that is) has finally arrived: the day that we get all of our new Other Comfy Stuff into the store. For those of you not familiar, Other Comfy Stuff (OCS) is something that no Sac or Sactional owner can live without. It’s our own collection of blankets (large and small), slippers, body pillows, bed pillows, and functional stuffed animal friends like Nooder, Spade, and Kobe.

Every year our OCS gets the newest, most trendy, comfy theme we can find to give it a little makeover – and this year is one of the coolest we’ve had. In addition to our usually Phur products – this year Cow Phur is making its debut – we also have a ton of great knit products. That’s right – knit. Super soft and super thick, you can now get Knit Body Pillow Covers (see picture, left), Knit Slippers, and Knit Throw Blankets, all perfect for snuggling under during the coldest months of the year. We’re sure that any loved ones you’re trying to shop for would love a Knit Blanket, too!

What else is new at LoveSac this year? Well, for those of you looking for more expansive home remodels – more than just a few new blankets or pieces of furniture – we are proud to say that we now carry Mythic Paint, a non-toxic, zero VOC brand that comes in a ton of amazing, vibrant colors. (Something which is rare for eco friendly paints!) Stop on by and take a look at our swatch books. Nothing says ‘happy holidays’ like a room makeover.

 

See you soon!



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!



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!



Are You Ready for the Holidays?

Thanksgiving is less than a week away. It’s the first ‘big holiday’ of the season: after that, it’s a downhill sprint through December and onwards to the New Year. Aside from shopping for gifts galore, the holidays mean a lot of other things, too. The onset of winter can mean preparing for a comfy staycation, and the onset of the holidays might mean that you’re about to be bombarded by family, friends, and loved ones. Which leaves the question: are you prepared?

If you’re contemplating putting Grandma on an air mattress or your best friend from college on a couch, we at LoveSac say that you are NOT, as you may otherwise think, ready. How lame are those sleeping options?! Think instead about investing in a PillowSac – without the cover, it extends to the size of a Full Size bed (and can even use Full Size bed sheets!). Thinking Grandma won’t be able to get off of a Sac? Go for Sactionals – four bases pushed together are the same size as a Full Size bed (and LoveSac.com has a fantastic mattress topper to finish the look). Yeah, yeah, someone’s still on a couch if you want to get technical – but we guarantee it’s oodles more comfortable than that spring-ridden pull out you were about to use.

Lacking blankets? Thinking about dragging out that stained thing from the trunk of your car? Think again – it’s not too late to snatch up some clearance King Blankets (for $180) or Love Throws (for $79) in store. Want to really knock your guest’s socks off? Pick up The Bomb Pillow (a bed pillow made of a memory foam core with down and dream fiber fill) to ensure they get the best night’s rest. And when family is involved, a good night’s rest ups your chances of a drama free weekend by about 99%.

So, are you ready for the holidays? If not, stop in and stock up! We guarantee your guests will not leave your home disappointed.

 

Holding out ’til after the first Holiday to make your purchase? Black Friday Sale details will be released on Monday – STAY TUNED!



That’s so last season…

…isn’t always a bad thing! If you have been in our store recently, you might have noticed our Other Comfy Stuff (known fondly here as ‘OCS’) wall decked out in the Artichoke, Mink, and Black Croc Phurs that were so popular in past holiday seasons. While these colors won’t be sticking around the store for long, that’s a good thing for you pre-holiday shoppers.

While supplies last, you can score all of your favorite other Comfy Stuff for a mega-discount. Trust us, there is no better way to show someone you care than giving them something comfy! Snag a few pairs of slippers for when you get invited to those holiday parties and need a ‘just because’ gift. Grab some throw pillows for your son or daughter’s first apartment. Or even get a nice, big King Blanket for yourself. Get ’em while they’re still here – with these prices, they won’t last long!

Prices on the soon to be defunct OCS colors and styles are as follows:

King Blankets: $180 (marked down from $300!)

Love Throws: $75

Slippers: Buy one, get one half off (or one pair for $30)

Throw Pillows: 2 for $30 or 4 for $50

I Want Your Body Pillow: Buy the pillow for $150, get a Phur Case free!
