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!



Happy 10th Birthday LoveSac!

Does anyone remember back in the day when your MovieSac size was lovingly referred to as the Tonolove? (Some of you with really old covers might still see this displayed on the tag of your ancient microsuedes and corduroy covers!) Well, it being our 10th birthday and all, we have a Tonolove to give: namely to you, the people who have been supporting and loving us all these years. For this weekend only, if you purchase any MovieSac with full priced cover, receive $200 off the price of the insert! It’s a great deal and a great time to snag some extra seating for all that family coming into town for the holidays.

We look forward to seeing you in the store this weekend – and here’s to another 10 great years!

Corporate celebrates with cake!



Have you heard about 5 Series?

So, the unthinkable has happened. You walked into your favorite Mayfair Mall Retail Store (LoveSac, derr) with the mild-mannered intention of gently prodding one of the huge, squishy chairs that you can see from the door. (For the unversed, we call those ‘SuperSacs.’) But mid poke, you look over and see the most awesome couch you’ve ever seen. Upon further inquiry, you’re told that it’s called a ‘Sactional.’ It’s sold in separate pieces, Bases and Sides, and works like glorified adult Legos – they even have removable, washable, changeable covers.

But just as you start to fall in love with these amazing, totally functional, modular couches, you realize: even buying piece by piece, they’re just to big for your space. That’s where 5 Series comes in.

5 Series looks and works just like the typical Sactionals – called 6 Series – with two major exceptions. 5 Series are about 20% smaller all the way around (Bases measure 31″Wx26″Dx17″H while Sides measure 31″Wx5″Dx28″H) and they are also sold with covers right away. 5 Series don’t have the same selection of covers as 6 Series, but at any given time we have about three to choose from: Chocolate Velvish, which we have year round, and two rotating seasonal covers. Right now, those two are Black Leather and Bidness Grey Tweed.

Bases for Bidness Tweed and Chocolate are $300, while Sides for those covers are $150. In the Leather, 5 Series Bases are $350 while Sides are $175. Fear not: covers can still be removed, washed (in cases other than the leather), and changed to other styles, which can still be ordered from our custom books.

Thinking of filling a small space? Think no further than 5 Series!

LoveSac, Welcome to Leather

It’s been a long time coming, but leather is here. It first arrived as Black Leather for 5 Series Sactionals and CitySacs, but ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to welcome Top Grain Cigar Brown Leather for 6 Series Sactionals (and soon to be available in a SuperSac Set)!

Top Grain Leather is at the top of the textile food chain. What better combination is there for a night of culture and world domination over home décor and beast alike than an evening spent in a hide-on-hide marathon sipping Argentinean wine while exploring the depths of postmodern literature with friends of equal intellect in your own comfortable Lovesac living room? Sure, microsuede is nice for the basement, but it won’t bring you the satisfaction — the sense of superiority — that comes from being perched on this Top Grain Leather. Nor will it complement your mahogany humidor.

This is the kind of leather that shows discoloration when stretched, temporarily scars when scratched, and is just begging for human interaction that lasts so long it eventually shows the darker, shiny, worn-in spots where you love to sit and take in your favorite show. This is Top Grain Leather by Lovesac — it doesn’t get any more real than this. Cigar-Brown is a color that works in any room, with nearly any décor, especially when paired with other natural looking fabrics. Cigar-Brown has is the hue and finish that says to someone the minute they walk in the room: “That’s right…it’s real.” Lovesac’s Top Grain Leather makes a statement using perforated panels to create breathable sections that give all Cigar-Brown Leather Covers breathability for the product and your backside. This proper application of contemporary textile technology not only separates Lovesac leather designs from the pack, but brings you a level of comfort and style which cannot be found anywhere else.

Stop in and check it out for yourself – Top Grain Leather will be on display through the holidays, and then like so many seasonal covers before it, it will move into our custom order book. Give a sit!



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!
