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!

Want to give method 3 a try? Check out the video below (the ‘books’ tutorial is a great guide for wrapping boxed Phur Feet Slippers) – and stay tuned for more updates on how to Sac out this holiday season!



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.



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)

November 1st marked the first half of our floor re-do: we are now showcasing the new Tobacco PillowSac Package ($550 in store), Business Tweed in 5 Series Sactionals, and of course leatherBlack in 5 Series and Cigar Brown in both 6 Series Sactionals and SuperSacs. Oh, and did we mention Cow Phur?

This, the softest of the limited edition covers, is available in two packages: one for the SuperSac at $700, and another for the CitySac at $550. All Holiday Package Deals are available for PreSale now – and once they sell out, they are gone for the entirety of the holidays. Get yours today!

New Places Require New Furniture

…and we can help!

First of all, if you already have a Sac, we can help you move it. In case you haven’t heard, we have brand new Shrink Kits – similar to the old ship kits, but better. These bad boys come with several of the large plastic vacuum bags and one heavy-duty ultra-fancy duffel to shrink your Sac into, meaning that you can use it for multiple moves. For those of you not going far, keep in mind that we still have Sport Utility Covers – these hefty outdoorsy covers have straps and handles that will get your Sac down to about half its size.

And what about you lot who don’t yet own Sacs, but are moving into a brand new pad? Well, new places require new furniture, and to help you get there, we still have Sac Packages running in all of the gorgeous colors of our new Spring Line (plus some limited edition ones for the SuperSac like Houndstooth and Microleather!). And what about Sactionals, you may wonder? Just stop in and ask us about floor model setups and covers!

Go on – you know you want to.
