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!

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!



The moment you’ve been waiting for… the Black Friday Sale!

Are you ready for the best sale of the year? We certainly hope so – and this year, it’s going to be great. From the first hour we’re open (5:00am – 5:59am) you’ll be getting 30% off everything*.

That’s right – we said 30% off everything*. For a store that does not often run sales, this is a pretty big deal. You can get the sale on Sacs, Covers, Other Comfy Stuff (blankets, pillows, Nooder and friends, slippers), and even Sactionals. That’s right: you can get your dream living room at one of the best rates you’ll ever see in our store, all for the first hour of Black Friday. And of course, you can’t forget the limited edition packages. SuperSac Cow Phur Packages will be $599, while CitySac Cow Phur Packages will be $499.

Once the clock strikes 6am, the amazing savings will be over, but the savings themselves won’t be quite gone: you’ll be able to get 10% off everything* until close of business at 10pm.

Now, for all the nitty gritty details. First of all, as you can imagine, there are going to be a lot of people who want to get in on this sale. It’s in your best interesting to get up and get here as early as possible: stores in the mall open at 5am, but Mayfair will likely be open much earlier (we expect lines to start forming around 4am, if not beforehand), so plan ahead! As your friendly sales associates, we’re going to try as hard as possible to get you in and out of the store as quickly as possible, but sometimes lines might not accommodate. That being said, we will be taking measures to ensure that if you are in the store (or at least in the line for the store) before your sale hour ends, you will get the sale you were waiting for (even if you’re not rung up at the register during that sale). Likewise, we will be equally as strict with those of you who are late. Think your sixth grade teacher strict: no exceptions. If you get into line at 6.01, you will unfortunately be included in the 10% off group, so just remember, better early than late!

The second nitty gritty detail is in terms of inventory. Sac buyers, almost all of you will be able to take your inserts home with you same day. Those of you who won’t, we have more inserts on their way and you’ll be able to snag ‘em in the next few weeks. Sactional buyers: we know you, we love you, we appreciate you, but the unfortunate price you have to pay for the most amazing Sactional Sale ever is that you will not be able to pick your product up same day. Don’t worry – we have oodles in stock – we just don’t have the time or staff to get all of that delivered on such a busy day. In your case we’ll be getting in touch with you all to set up separate pick up times in the next few weeks.

Now for covers and the dreaded * that you saw next to ‘everything.’ Covers are a hot commodity that we are always short on, and now is no exception. Some of you will be able to take your covers same day (on a first come/first served basis), and others of you will have to wait; however, we will not stop you from preordering your covers to get the sale prices. You might just have a little bit of a wait, which again is a small price to pay for a great deal. If you’re concerned on getting product for the Holidays, just ask your friendly Sales Rep (we will be the lovely ladies in the LoveSac shirts, for the record) and she will be able to help you out. As far as the dreaded * goes, we do have to inform you:

*Discounts do not apply to Custom Order Covers from any of the four Custom Order books or Top Grain Leather for 6 Series. You are more than welcome to purchase any of these at full price, though, keeping in mind you can still get your inserts (Sac or Sactional) with the discount. Want a better deal on leather? Consider going to 5 Series Black Leather, which is included in the 30% off!

Sounds pretty great, right? We can guarantee that this is the best deal you’ll get all year long (and probably all next year long, too), so start making your selections on what you want to get and setting your alarms now, folks. Remember, if you have any questions on product or the sale, please give us a call at 414.774.5683 or e-mail at mayfair@lovesac.com. You can even leave a comment on our blog and we’ll try to get back to you. We’ll do our best to help you during any business hours (and even some non business ones when the blog is concerned). Other than that, rest while you can and we’ll see you on Friday!



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!



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!

**Thinking of Black Friday? Stay tuned to this space for updates on our amazing, once a year, best-you’ll-ever-see sale.



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.
