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!

Missed the first hour madness?

Have no fear if you did – you can still snag a great deal this Holiday weekend. Package deals are still 50% off while supplies last, putting the SuperSac Cow Phur Package at $599 and the CitySac Cow Phur Package at$499. Cow Phur not your cup of tea? Ask one of our friendly sales reps about one of our other awesome limited edition packages for the SuperSac, or our super-rare Big One Package.

Looking for a better deal on something out of the package? Inquire about one of our Fluffed Floor Models – we have them in Super, Movie, and Gamer, not to mention several Sactional Set-Ups and Cover Sets for Sacs and Sactionals. Shoot us an e-mail or give us a call (414.774.5683) if you have a question!



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 TOBACCO WEAVE

Looking for a PillowSac in a nice, neutral, earthy color? Love the woven texture that is completely en vogue right now? Look no further than Tobacco Weave, one of our fantastic holiday releases available only in the Tobacco Weave PillowSac Package.

For $550, you can take home the PillowSac Tobacco Weave Package – it comes complete with PillowSac Insert, Tobacco Weave Cover, two matching Throw Pillows, and the ever-popular Rocker Frame

If you’re interested, be sure to act fast – both the PillowSac Package and the Cow Phur Packages (available for City and Super) are limited edition through holiday. They’re available right now for Pre-Sale, but once they’re gone, they’re gone. (That means if we sell out before Black Friday, you’ll be out of luck!) Get ’em quick, ’cause they’ve already been flying out of our stock room.

Searching for Black Friday Sale details? Stay tuned – bookmark this site and stop back, as we don’t usually release the details until about a week or so before the Big Day.



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!



Those less fortunate….

Alright, everyone. It’s that time of year: the Holidays. The time to get in to the spirit, to share with others, to do good deeds. It’s the time of year that you spend with family, the time to love one another. It’s especially the time of year to cherish how lucky we really are.

While you’re sitting at home, safe and comfortable in your SuperSac, laying under a phur lined Love Throw, there are people out there suffering. While you’re lounging your Sactional, contemplating if you want to rearrange it into a Movie Lounger or leave it as is, there are people out there who are not as lucky. There are people out there who still have lame, uncomfortable furniture.

Yes, we know, it’s totally shocking, but it’s true. The 38 nationwide LoveSac stores are trying as fast as they can to spread the word and save as many uncomfortable lives as possible, but the number of people still blind to the ways of the Sac is still monumental. (We’ve lobbied for it to be declared a National Crisis, but for some reason they just won’t make the announcement.) The best way to combat this around the Holidays is of course for you to buy LoveSacs or LoveSac starters (like our amazing Other Comfy Stuff) for as many people as possible. Maybe a Manor Suede Package in Super or City for your brother, possibly a King Blanket for mom. A simple Base and Side of our Sactionals can make a great chair and starter set up for your off-to-college niece.

The best way to get started on this altruistic endeavor is to get up from your all-too-comfortable seat and get over to your Local LoveSac (at Mayfair Mall) for this, the last weekend before Christmas. We here can help you figure out exactly what you need for the people you care about most – the ones you want to experience a truly comfortable life. One step at a time, we can make everyone’s lives more comfortable.

And while you’re here, swing by the Food Court where you can grab a gift tag (previously the Angel Tree project) to help out someone who really, really needs it. Not going by the Food Court? Then save that spare change from Christmas shopping for some other worthwhile organizations.



Happy Holidays from your favorite LoveSac Staff…

happy holidays from the mayfair team!

Yup – that’s our entire staff, the lovely ladies of LoveSac Mayfair, all on the BigOne. (All of you who doubt that the BigOne actually fits five, take note!) The picture was taken by Alex, the fearless leader of our Retail Team, during our annual store training. We call it “frontline.” Post training, we are now all qualified to help you make your living room even more awesome than ever before.

We’re also prepared to give you a special offer for the Holidays: Manor Suede City Sac Packages are now $349 until December 24th. $50 off! As we’ve mentioned before, the City Package comes with the gorgeous chocolate brown Manor Suede Cover, matching Soda Sac, Sjorn, and a Sheepskin Throw Pillow. The package deal is kind of the ultimate gift to give someone, but if you’re trying to stretch a dollar, you can always split it up and dole out the contents to all of the Sac lovers in your life. Sheepskin Throw Pillow for dad, Sjorn for little Suzy, CitySac for yourself… okay, okay, for mom! It is the season for giving, after all.

If the CitySac insert your thing, we do have plenty of other Sac sizes in stock and ready to take home today. Just stop in the store or give us a call – we’d love to help you get the perfect Holiday gift.
