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!



Sac Gift Wrapping 101

Alright – so let’s get real. Sacs, even when in their vacuum-packed-1/8th their size-shape, are almost impossible to gift wrap. Sure, you can stick a bow on the sucker – but good luck leaving that under the tree for the twelve days of Christmas. We’re willing to bet that before the partridge lands in the pear tree, your previously unwitting recipient will have figured out his or her present. (The size name on the side of the duffel is a dead give away.) So what do you do to ensure that your special someone has something to unwrap come the holidays? Here are some of our best suggestions:

1. Wrap the Cover, Hide the Sac. The easiest of the options, boxing up the cover is a great way to give someone something to open. And once they pull it out – confusedly reading the ‘LoveSac – The Big One’ tag – you move to the closet and yank out that giant 90 lbs bag of foam while the giftee shrieks in delight. But what happens if your ordered a Custom Cover that won’t get there before the holidays, or the cover you wanted was out of stock?

2. Wrap a KickSac, Phur Ball, or Throw Pillow when option one isn’t feasible. KickSacs and Phur Balls look a lot like LoveSacs – it makes a great gag gift for those young and old who were sure they were getting a Sac! Wait until the X-Box Box syndrome sets in, and then repeat the last step of option one. But wait – not that mean? Or feel like some of your (more dimwitted) friends still won’t understand?

3. Try this – take the aforementioned Other Comfy Stuff (KickSac, Phur Ball, Throw Pillow, Blanket – whatever!) and wrap it in a LoveSac T-shirt, furoshiki style. Instead of using a vintage scarf of traditional furoshiki scarf, try using a LoveSac T-Shirt – logo in if you want to preserve the surprise – and watch your giftee squeal in delight over the Sac and sweet extra LoveSac shirt. Not to mention, it’s eco-friendly!

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!



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.
