Lovesac Mayfair's Blog


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!



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!

The Spring Line is now HERE!

After a tiresome day of resetting our floor, I’m proud to announce that the LoveSac Spring Line is now live on our floor! We’re happily showcasing Manhattan Velvet, Camel Tweed, Champagne Velvet, and Purpletini Velvet – and to celebrate, we’ve made them available in special Limited Edition Sac Packages (For Super, Super, Pillow, and MovieSacs, respectively.) We’ve also released Camel Tweed and Champagne Velvet for 6 Series Sactionals, along with a very gorgeous first-time-ever TuftedTweed version of Camel for 5 Series (it’s cute as a button!). Collectively, we consider this to be one of the most beautiful lines we’ve ever released; and all in the name of Vintage Style. Click the link below to see pictures of the new Packages and great Accessories!

P.S. Please pay special attention to Francis, the DIY Deer Head that will be available in the packages! We’re about the enter a very fierce decorating competition with the other stores that make up Sac Nation – if you have any ideas on how to make Francis amazing, please pass them along! Without further ado:

YOU JUST CELEBRATED THE SUPERBOWL – WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO NOW?

Football is over for the year, but what a glorious end it was. Now, however, the question is what to do to fill the empty void left in your life until next fall. Since MKE weather is a typically tricky temptress, we highly recommend sinking back into a full-fledged hibernation.

Of course, for that to actually work, you will need to have a fully Sac’d out house. Anything less and you start realizing the sometimes catastrophic consequences that come with the ultimate-laziness-until-spring-lifestyle. We realize that a lot of you were probably gifted (or self-gifted) Sacs for the Holidays – but do you have Sactionals yet?

For those of you who haven’t heard, Sactionals are our totally awesome, modular, changeable, and washable furniture. They’re more structured than Sacs but still just as comfortable and just as much fun. Plus, we know offer our Sactionals in a 5 Series option. 5 Series are about 20% smaller and 30% less expensive than our original 6 Series, so they can fit in more spaces more easily. And did we mention that they come WITH Covers…? Oh yeah; they’re pretty awesome.

Stop in and check them out today and get back to hibernating tomorrow!



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.
