"Thanks!" to  many of you who shared the following email from J.Crew.

*25% discount valid on the purchase of select items in J.Crew stores and at jcrew.com from March 2, 2015, 12:01am ET through March 5, 2015, 11:59pm ET. In-store discount as advertised. Online discount valid on items marked "25% off with code LIGHTENUP." Offer not valid in the 769 Madison Avenue store, Liquor Store, Ludlow Shops, J.Crew Factory stores, at jcrewfactory.com or on phone orders.

Offer valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms of offer are subject to change.
Although I am happy to see there is a full priced promotion going on, I am thoroughly dissappointed to see the additional percent off sale is gone. With over 2000+ for women (and a ton of random pop-backs), the best way to move that merchandise is with an additional percent off. I can already guess what the promotion on March 6th will look like! ;)

Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? Any items you are excited to get? Please share!

Sought & Found: Did you visit J.Crew this {past} Weekend?

This is the weekly "sale watch" post, to help each other find sale items at our various local J.Crew stores. ;)

If you are stopped by a J.Crew store this past weekend to see what's available (if anything!) in the SALE, or to see some NEW ARRIVALS {sigh!} in person, maybe you might be willing to share that with us in this post. In particular, if you could share with us a few of the noteworthy items that are available, at what prices, and potential sizes the store is carrying (as well as the store location)- that would be fantastic!

Also, please let us know if your local store was/ is carrying an additional percent off sale. Thanks in advance!!! :)
