Seek & Find: Will you visit J.Crew this 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 stopping by a J.Crew store this weekend to see what's available in the WINTER & HOLIDAY sale, or to see some new RESORT 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 is carrying an additional percent off sale. Thanks in advance!!! :)

P.S. I noticed that many of you have already been reporting sale items (and in which stores) in other posts which by the way "thank you!" :) I really appreciate how helpful we are for each other!

  1. I went today to the JCREW store in Sacramento, CA and they still have an additional 30% off on the sale items... Everything is pretty much gone but there were a lot of t-shirts ranging from 19.99 to 29.99 without the 30% off. I believe these were added to the sales. I bought three tees in total. The new items will hit the store by the 25th of january.

  2. I too went to JCrew on the Thursday in NYC Rockefeller Ctr and 45th and Madison. 30% is still running although it is slim picking. I will be heading to Garden State NJ tonight. I looking for the Velvet Eden Blazer and the cascading crinkle dress. 45th Steet had the blazer in Dark Blossom size 8 10 14 it was selling for $89.99 (online $59.99). They both had many tees and a decent amount of puffer coats. the tees range from 14.99 - $29.99. I will post again when I return from NJ.

  3. Will be stopping by the Asheville, NC store this weekend...any NC JCAs know of sales/goings-on at that store?

    Mia--what size and color of the Eden blazer are you looking for?

  4. I went to the J.Crew Leesburg Outlet last night and they had their new Spring arrivals.

    --Lots of different options in the Fresco print (green/pink paisley print from last spring), including a summer dress, mini skirt, cotton top, and the silk garland top.
    --Beige lattice print pencil skirt, dress, and capris
    --Finally, Frenchie Trench Coats in Papaya and Navy. They might have had them in Stone as well, but I can't remember for sure

    Also, basics like Jackies, Shirts, Jeans, etc.

    I actually didn't buy anything -- I LOVE pencil skirts and they didn't have any (would have loved to see one in that fresco pattern), but oh well.

    Worth a look if you live near one (esp since the regular stores are so bare!) :) HTH!

  5. Good size update this morning, scored a few popbacks. I missed the boat the other night on the wool Chimera ruffle blazer- sold out fast! Looking for any color (navy, pink, grey) in a 12. Maybe a 14 if cut small. Any leads would be appreciated.

  7. jbird,

    I hope you find your coat. I will be going to a store (hopefully) next weekend. I will keep an eye out for you. I have it in blue and love it. It runs TTS for me.

  8. Last night I returned a pair of the Pippa heels, size 8 in Dusty Lilac. I see they are now on final sale and the Towson location had and additional 30% off as well so the shoes would run you around $100.

    If any JCAs were looking for these shoes- give the store a call.

  9. Has anyone heard when new stuff will be in stores? I'm heading to the US in early Feb and will be so disappointed if all the stores have is picked-over winter stuff.

  10. Hello again...
    @ AppGal: I'm looking for the Eden Blazer in tawny olive size 6.

  11. Priya Cherry thanks for the info. I love paisley and missed out on the fresco items last year so I will be watching for them now. Was the beige lattice pencil skirt the same print as last year? I bought the orange and wore it quite a bit, would consider adding the beige to my closet.

  12. Has anyone bought the Slub cotton cardigan? I'm bummed that it's online and I don't want to pay for shipping to figure out whether I like it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. clicquot: general consensus seems to be that new arrivals hit stores january 25.

  14. I went to the University Village store in Seattle Thursday. It was pretty empty. Lots of leftover holiday tees. A small table of leftover chinos and cords. I got the broken in boyfriend chino for $7. There were a few in green, size 0, which runs large.

    No special bargains otherwise.

    The SA told me new arrivals were coming Tuesday. Too bad for me. . . can't get back for at least a month.

  15. @ Summer- thanks for the input on the sizing!

  16. Nothing to mention clothes wise instore, but there's one pair of the tortoise ballet flats in 7 1/2 for 69.99 before the percent off. Still full price online, so not too shabby! A really nice SA says they run big, and I can fit the 8 1/2, and I take a 9 in heels. (NOT 9 1/2 JC!!!) I returned the mismarked Bryant heels, and am looking forward to seeing what I'll have to return from my next order.

    Oh, the torties are at the Briarwood store, 734-662-6630 if anyone's interested in the 7 1/2s.

  17. Barton Creek Square is fairly picked over at this point but they do have a good selection of the new popover tops, some new swimsuits, minnies, lots of Jackies and a few new t's. There are still several racks of items in the sale section including a twill boyfriend fatigue jacket ($59.99) and sale items are still 30% off. BTW I was returning some items I bought during the online sale that did not come up as Final Sale on the online check out or the receipt that came with the order. The SA questioned these but the mgr said they can be returned as long as they are not marked FS. I have noticed this alot on my last few order...some items show up as FS some don't!

  18. Thanks Allie & Fidele. Can't wait to get to a B&M store!!

  19. If anyone has any reports from the Corte Madera or Palo Alto Stores, I'd love to hear. OT: I have pics of the new gingham shirt up on my blog if anyone needs to see pics.

  20. I'll probably go in to do some returns, and possible going to the sample sale. If anyone sees cashmere v-neck cardigans in size small anywhere or Heirloom flora earrings in chocolate, please let me know ;) Thanks! love2shop4bags AT yahoo DOT com.

  22. Danielle,
    I ordered the slub cotton cardigan right before Christmas using the 25% off code. It went back to the store, though. It was *really* long on me. Granted, I'm only 5'2, but it hit right ABOVE MY KNEE. Much too long for wee little me. It looks super cute in the catalog on the much-taller model. As far as quality, it was nice, a little slim-fitting. I also ordered the long-sleeve slub tee that came out with the cardi, and I like it a lot. HTH!

  23. xoxo -- Yes, from what I could tell the brown lattice print was the same as last year. They had a pencil skirt, similar styled dress from last year, and capris in that pattern and color. HTH :)

  24. Okay, I know that this is a long shot, but has anyone seen the downtown field jacket in a Large in a store?

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  25. don't know if anyone is interested but Austin J. Crew (Barton Creek) as tortoise patent pumps in size 7 and 5. 30% off $109. I love these shoes and hope someone out there scoops them before they are gone.

  26. If anyone sees an Infinity Bracelet in the peach color at their store the could you please let me know? Tia!

  27. I went to J Crew in Raleigh, NC and salvaged a few things in the wreckage -- a velvet eden blazer in dark blossom and a sparkly belt. Both were 30 percent off.

    What do the JCAs think about the downtown field jacket? Is it worth the price?

  28. Netdeva,

    Have you seen the downtown field jacket in a store recently?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Rynetta, unfortunately it's been awhile.

    However, my experience with the stardust sequin skirt tells me they will re-issue it soon.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thanks, Netdeva! And, I agree, I'm hoping they will reissue the jacket. I saw a popback online a couple of days ago, but it wasn't my size. Thanks again!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Netdeva,
    Where there any new arrivals in Raleigh,NC? Thanks. Was the store filled with items or bare? Wondering if I should wait or go.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I just wanted to say thank you to txmom for her post last week about the pencil skirts at the Barton store. I ended up getting one for cheaper than going online. Thanks txmom!

    Also, I got the downtown field jacket when it first came out in the mossy green color....and I LOVE it! It was definitely worth the price!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Summer, the Raleigh store is still bare. New arrivals come on Monday. I might take a lunch time trip.

    Pauline, thanks for the tip. I might buy one when there's a popback.

  34. Marlton, NJ store was a ghost town today. I have gift cards that are burning a hole in my wallet. I really wish there was some new merchandise in the store. I don't understand the approach right now?

    One more week, I guess.

    The sale section was empty. The entire back half of the store was bare. Like, seriously bare.

    There were some cute spring embellished tees and cardis in the front.

    Ann Taylor was bumpin. So was Anthro.

  35. Field jacket SO worth the sale price, esp with in-store 30% off sale

    popped in today to get some backup sale tights. Fortunately found them but there was NOTHING. Just curious, anyone have the in-store only (at least I can't find it online) chambray popover skirt? It's $40 which I think is fair but I just **HATE** paying fp for anything unless I'm crazy in love. And not very often even then. Just wondering what everyone thinks about the skirt

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm holding out until the new arrivals hit the floor on the 25th! However, I am still trying to find the Strech flannel Olive top in the heather carbon color in a size 8 or 10!! If anyone sees one in at their local b&m PLEASE let me know! =P I'd really appreciate it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Netdeva,
    Thanks.
    Would you mind reporting back what you do find/if worth the trip?
    I would greatly appreciate it:) Hard to get out with kids and another big life issue right now...

  38. Online - Extra 30% off + FS!

  39. Thanks again, Netdeva, I got my downtown field jacket today!!!! Someone returned a Medium to the store, and thank goodness I didn't find the Large because I needed the M.

    And, I love my PS, who is the store manager; she's AMAZING. She saw the return and swooped it up for me before anyone else could get it!!!!
