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!



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!



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!

Merry Christmas to All, and to All a SuperSac!

Merry Christmas, everyone! We at LoveSac are, as we usually are during Holidays, resting before another big day at the mall – this time, the day after Christmas, the second biggest shopping day of the year. For those of you who are kicking yourselves for missing the Black Friday sale, well, this won’t be quite the same – but it will be your last chance of the year to give yourself some comfort.

Our deals will consist of:

$50 off the last of the ManorSuede Super or City Packages (which brings them pretty darn close to Black Friday prices!)

$50 off ANY INSTOCK SAC COVER with purchase of Sac Insert

$50 off The Bomb Pillow (haven’t heard of The Bomb? Stop in and check it out!)

$50 off any of our Blankets – that means the Love Throw or The King Blanket. Sweet!

And what about those of you sitting with your fingers crossed for Sactionals? Well, if you’re looking at 5 Series, think about our Manor Suede – on December 26th, when you buy 4 bases and 4 sides, you’ll get another side free. This will give you a perfect 4 base/5 side set up, which gives you more versatility than you can imagine. Don’t believe us? Find one of our friendly PDSE’s and ask them to show you the blocks – after all, seeing is believing.

Until tomorrow, have a very merry (and very comfortable) Christmas!



Mother’s Day is Coming!

May 9th is Mother’s Day – are you ready? If you’re not, let LoveSac help you out. We can speak from personal experience – our mothers love ’em – that our products are a hit with mom. The following are our top recommendations to keep Mom happy on Mothers Day:

PHUR FEET: Reflexologists tell us that feet have a direct connection to everything – that means that they are a straight line to your mothers heart. Our soft and fuzzy Phur Feet are sure to tickle hers and show her that you want her to be able to kick back and relax, too. Come check them out – they come in our Silver Mink and Black Crock Phur styles.

I WANT YOUR BODY PILLOW: Okay, okay, so maybe don’t tell your mom the whole name. But this pillow is probably the best she’ll ever have: it has a dream fiber core, a unique fiber that helps to circulate temperature so that in the summer months, cuddle time never means overheating. And with a soft down fluff over that, and the sweet washable microsuede cover it comes with, we see it as a hit with moms everywhere.

FOOTSAC BLANKET: Our FootSacs come in all of the colors of our Sacs and Sactionals, and are just as comfy, to boot. The best part? They have a sneaky pocket for your feet, so they’ll never get cold while you’re watching a movie. We think mom will approve!

SACTIONALS & COVERS: A whole set up is of course great for you over achievers (or middle children seeking lost attention), but we’ve found that moms appreciate a new set of covers just as much. We suggest some of the jazzy colors and patterns from custom order, but you of course can decide for yourself. (Check out the Antoinette’s – they’re awesome!)

Still confused on what to get your mother? Stop in the store and let our expert Sacr’s help you out! For those of you hunting for a deal, make sure you also stop in to see what we have left on sale… trust us, it’s pretty good!
