J.Crew Celebrates the J.Crew Aficionada Blog Turning Two {so happy, hyperventilating now!}

As mentioned in yesterday's "OMG! Get 15% Off *and* Free Shipping Tomorrow! {exclusively for JCA members}" post, J.Crew is celebrating the "J.Crew Aficionada" blog turning the big 2!

And they brought one heck-of-an-amazing-gift for all us J.Crew Aficionadas & Aficionados! :) For just today, Wednesday, May 12th, use promo code BIRTHDAY for 15% off *and* free shipping (no minimum!) The technical details on this amazing gift:
Simple to use—just enter the below code, BIRTHDAY, during checkout. We simply ask that this code only be used on current orders, it is not applicable to previous purchases made and it cant be combined with any other offer. Expires 12am EST on May 13th, 2010.
I am really touched by how generous this gesture is. ("Thank you!" J.Crew & J.Crew's Tracy Crane!!!) I am also ecstatic about this offer and can't wait to load up my shopping cart full of J.Crew goodies.

Will you be taking advantage of this one-day-offer from J.Crew? If so, please share what "birthday presents" you got! ;)

  5. Alexis, thank you so much for this blog. You have created a great community and I love visiting everyday! Thank you also for sharing the code. I just ordered the white eyelet pencil skirt and I have you to thank for it!

  6. What a lovely gesture! Well-deserved. Happy (belated) blog b'day, Alexis!

  7. If you have trouble with the shipping, call CS. When I was online, the 15% came off my order but not the shipping. I called CS and by the second time I called they seemed to have it figured out. She took the order over the phone and it all went swimmingly!!!! She did say they had a bunch of calls from people having trouble. Go to bed, JCA's.... it's late!!!

  10. Happy Birthday JCA! I nearly cried when I read the news! What a great gift from J.Crew and wonderful acknowledgment of the awesome work you do here! Here's to many more years!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. 20% shorts and fs this am.

    Yay Alexis your blog finally got the recognition that you deserved.

    Thanks for the code I used it this am on another pair of Safari pants I know I said the back pockets were too big but when I received my Pearl ones I really thought the pants were flattering to my figure and I really wanted to use this code to show support to this community.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I placed an order of an item I had been stalking, a pair of shorts, and a skirt that I'm willing to try given the jca promo. Thanks, Alexis!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I totally am! Thank you so much Alexis for continuing to host this wonderful site. It's a one stop shop for all that is J.Crew. It's also a wonderful place to meet and "speak" with other like minded individuals who have the same passion for the brand.

    And thank you to J.Crew for acknowledging Alexis and the site. It's because we love the brand that we are here and it's nice to know you recognize that.

    I cannot wait to place an order!!!
    Thanks again!!!

  14. OMG! I die! I die for you! And for all of us, as our most favorite wish has come true! Discount AND free ship w/no minimum! The retail gods have smiled upon us!

    Hmm, what to buy, what to buy. Most go browse. Maybe the Vista print bikini, maybe more CrewCuts tees for my boy!

    Thanks for the awesome news and congrats on the recognition! It's long overdue -- but it gives me hope, as maybe the corporate peeps are listening to some of the things you and the rest of us are saying. :-)

    EPIC WIN!

  15. Gosh darn it, J.Crew. I had sworn off you this month! :)
    Seriously, thanks, J.Crew!

    ReplyDelete
  16. YEAH! Score - one palmera cami for moi and a pair of shorts for the hubby.

    ReplyDelete
  17. This is great! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks so much again, both to Alexis and to J.Crew! I just placed my order. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow! That's awesome! thanks Alexis and thanks J.Crew!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Congratulations Alexis and thank you for sharing this great birthday present with all of us!

    Nothing for me (I shopped a lot recently) but I placed a big order for my husband (two blazers ad two pairs of pants), that is going to be a first!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Congrats Alexis! :)

    I will probably pass on this just because I just ordered some stuff and I already get 15% off student discount and my PS typically waives shipping.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks for all your work Alexis. I just used the code to get a Tailored Linen Piper Jacket :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I also had previously decided not to buy, but I wanted to show my appreciation to Alexis and JC and use the code, so I made a small accessory purchase this morning. How great that the 15% and FS works on sale items!!!

    Like us all, I am very grateful to you, Alexis, for all of your hard work in maintaining this fabulous blog, and to JCrew for recognizing and supporting its fans!

    Happy shopping to all!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm tempted to try the Studio Blazer. Does anyone have any feedback? Thank you!!

    And to JC: thank you for offering this great promo and thank you for no minimums!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I dont know if anyone mentioned this yet... but since the shorts/flip flops promo doesnt require a code, you can use the Birthday Code for another 15% off on top of that!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you, Alexis and J. Crew!

    And to top it off, looks like there's been a light update to the sale section too - the dotted playa dress I had been eyeballing is now on sale, yay!

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is so exciting! What a great gesture by J.Crew to recognize all the work you do :) Thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I got the Timex watch and a couple bands with the code.

    Thank you for your work maintaining this blog! I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. that's so cool! i am definitely going to place an order. thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Alexis, this promotion is so awesome! It's great that you're getting recognition from J Crew :)

    I'm taking advantage of this code to pick up some shirts for me and my little one, as well as the Schuyler dress, which I've had my eye on for a while. Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  31. How fabulous! Thank you so much Alexis and J.Crew!

    ReplyDelete
  32. lurker until now...just got a couple shirts and cardigans...love it, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  33. i picked up the pale cinnabar shorts and a new black jackie


    thanks for everything JCAs!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is wonderful! I just purchased some swimwear and thanks to your coupon I'll be able to have some fruity drinks on the beach! Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow! So cool and on top of the shorts & flip-flops promo! Way to go Alexis, now just get yourself the paperbag so you can keep the blog going! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. HBD! That is grand that you've been so nicely recognized by J.crew.

    Ordered a bunch of flip flops, received an extra discount on top of the sale price.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I just placed my order! Thanks so much! You totally deserve it!
    I got the Elan trousers (another pair in a smaller size) and 2 monogramed polos for my hubby. The scarf I wanted disappeared from my cart so I'll have to get that later!

    ReplyDelete
  38. congrats & happy blogoversary, Alexis! I just made a big order to show some support : ) - it's so awesome to have your own code!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I couldn't resist... I got a sale tank and a Crewcuts classroom cardigan to see if I can pull it off.

    Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Couldn't resist taking advantage of this code. It was such a nice gesture on j.crew's part. I got another pair of the ultra-knit lounge pants (sooo comfy!) and my first embossed beach dress EVER! I'm late to the game on that one...hope I'm not disappointed! I was *thisclose* to getting the knit racerback gown but after reading some reviews, felt like it would be waay too long on my 5'6" self. Oh well...

    ReplyDelete
  41. I've been waiting for a promotion to try the bistro pants. BR is apparently discontinuing their Jackson fit, so I need to find an alternative to my beloved BR stretch cotton trousers. I don't usually like how JC pants fit me, but I tried these on in-store a few weeks ago in one size too small (they didn't have my size in stock) and the stretch fabric was surprisingly forgiving.

    I also ordered one jackie cardigan from the sale section. I considered ordering a couple full price jackies, but I decided to wait for a LE Canvas promotion and buy the heritage cardis instead.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I ordered a bunch of stuff for myself, the kids, and some polo shirts for hubby.

    Alexis, thanks again for this wonderful blog. It really is a nice gesture from J.Crew!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've already spent too much at JCrew this month, but I bought a pair of shorts (luxe terry bloomer shorts in faded black) in support of you Alexis and this wonderful blog! Happy BIRTHDAY!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Can anyone comment on the Drawstring deux pant item 23859? I've been watching them for a while and cobblestone is finally back in my size. I'm going to order them instead of waiting but was wondering since they appear to be so popular. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow! Alexis, I'm so glad they finally gave you some recognition--you deserve it! All your hard work is truly appreciated, even without the discount (although that's nice, too) :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. WoW -- you and J. Crew have made my day AND my belated Mother's Day!! I've been eyeing the crystal devote earrings and the Martha bracelet, and now I was able to get both! Thank you, and happy, happy anniversary!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Alexis,

    Congratulations! We obviously enjoy your work and happily J Crew does too!

    Thank you--and for the discount. I finally pulled the trigger on the Martha necklace!

    Best,
    M

    ReplyDelete
  48. Happy birthday, Alexis, and thanks! What a great blog!

    I'm getting:

    Studio blazer, Zoey blazer in slate, Crystal cascade ribbon necklace, and Neon necklace!

    Kristin, you can see I'm going for the studio blazer, too. It's not final sale, so it will be returnable . . .

    thanks to J. Crew for this, too.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Thank you Alexis for all your hard work! I'm glad they're paying attention!
    Bit on the lieutenant jacket....been wanting it for a while, but I really didn't need to spend any more this month!

    ReplyDelete
  50. How awesome that JC recognized this important milestone! I definitely took advantage of this offer using my $25 rewards card!! I got the Canterbury bells skirt, white victoria ruffle cami, and a pair of "critter" flip flops!

    Alexis, thank you for all the time you spend here on your blog! it is an awesome resource! :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yea-I bought the ruched bandeau top and glamour girl bikini bottoms in blue sapphire! This was a major splurge for me because I usually buy cheap swimsuits from Target...not to mention having to pay shipping. So I was ecstatic to use the code-thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yeaaaaa! Went to use the code on a Forever Cardigan and saw that it was already reduced, plus got the 15% more off! Great deal!

    ReplyDelete
  53. O/t but in case anyone is considering ordering it, the
    Tissue flutter tank, Item 26315,
    is a miss for me. I ordered my regular size small. It fits tts but I don't care for the 'flutter' hanging out and down from my left breast (which is small so can't imagine it on a fuller chest size). Sorry, but it reminds me of a beard. I tried tucking the 'flutter' into the self-tie belt but the belt sits too low to and if I tie it higher it's too high. It's also very, very thin as expected which is why I ordered it for summer. Not for me even at $9.99 fs price (my own personal reminder in case I'm tempted).

    On a positive note, the Sequin-stripe henley tank does not disappoint...

    ReplyDelete
  54. Congratulations Alexis and thank you for making the special code possible.

    OT - I am looking at the Palisade cardigan. Has anyone tried it?

    ReplyDelete
  55. What a fun day for all of us: yay!
    I ordered that GIANT crystal necklace for myself, and some shirts, pants and a summer sportcoat for my DH. Great code, great recognition for you Alexis! Well deserved.
    Have fun shopping!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thank you so much for your WONDERFUL blog and even better coupon code! Got the tretorn metallic gold sneaks! Can't wait to wear them! Thank you so much and don't ever stop writing the blog!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I suppose it would be rude not to accept such a generous gift ;)

    I ordered the Silk Cargo Dress and Vintage Slub Polo...anyone have reviews on this dress by chance?

    Thanks Alexis and JCrew for this lovely promo! Much appreciated!

    ReplyDelete
  58. clicquot:

    I ordered the cargo dress as a pre-order, and based on the measurements sent by my ps, I ordered a 6 (I veer between a 6 and an 8 in J. Crew dresses). It fits very nicely, a little loose (just like it is meant to). Only thing is that is a bit short, but since it is a summer, hang loose kind of item, it's okay by me. I imagine wearing it with gladiator sandals, loads of bracelets, and my hair up in a ponytail. I just now need to do that. LOL.

    Alexis: This is such a fab promo. Esp. since it can be coupled with sales items, promos on shorts and flip-flops, and some of the collaboration pieces. Woohoo! Enjoy spending, everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Thank you Alexis and Happy Birthday. No someone stop me because I've already placed two orders :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I couldn’t ignore this offer.
    I ordered Victoria ruffle tissue cami in 3 colors; Everyday cardigan in pale blossom and Canterbury bells pencil skirt.
    Thank you, Alexis and JCrew.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Thanks for sharing, Alexis. I ordered a couple of things, including the Dahlia earrings - does anyone have them?

    ReplyDelete
  62. I just got the gold Topsiders and a ring! I felt so special using this discount.

    Thanks, Alexis

    ReplyDelete
  63. I decided to send j.crew an email (to the attn of Tracy) thanking them for thinking of us and for honoring Alexis' blog. Perhaps if many of us thanked them, they'd be more likely to do it again in the future! This really was kind of them to do.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Well, I had to use discipline but I went ahead and made my small purchase to show support for JC's decision to recognize the blog. It was a pop-back so I hope it ships!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I guess my comment from earlier today didn't save ... I'm a little sad because the only things I REALLY wanted -- broken-in boyfriend chino shorts -- did not show up as 20% off. I called customer service before I ordered and the woman (Shanika ?sp) couldn't explain why they were still the same price they were last week. No help at all. I bought them anyway with the BIRTHDAY code, but I sure would have liked to get the 20% off plus the 15% with the code. Boo hoo. :-/

    ReplyDelete
  66. Thank you Alexis! and Happybday to JCA blog. I think we all should order at least something so JC will see how important is this blog for all of us and we will be getting more dsct and our voice will be heard by JC. Bravo Alexis!

    ReplyDelete
  67. What a wonderful acknowledgment...I just placed an order yesterday, but might go ahead again today and order some things I wanted but didn't order due to no discount..like the Minnie pants I've been wanting to try..

    ReplyDelete
  68. OT: I know others have made comments about Talbots here and on other blogs. I just received the Spring Blossom Boyfriend cCardigan from them in purple print. (It also comes in two other colors.)The quality is fantastic. The buttons are a higher quality than JCrews. Nice and thick pearl/shell with silver metal re-enforcements.

    I recently received two JCrew sweaters from different orders...both had buttons that broke while I was putting it on for the first time.

    The Talbots sweater is a great weight. Perfect: not too thin and not too thick. Silk cotton blend. I did size down from my JCrew size as well.

    This is my first Talbots clothing purchase since the 90's and I am so happy with it. Had to share:)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Thank you!! Made an order for a pair of flip flops, sweater, and a tee for my son. If you add flip flops to your order you get free ship! :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. If you're shopping regular price, I have a list of reviews and links to irl pics in this post.

    ReplyDelete
  71. LOVE u Alexis and JC, for real-real.

    I ordered the lovely bisbee tote, gazebo trouser pant, two trifle cardis (honey and black), and a reusable doggie tote 'cause I didn't get the rewards freebie.

    As NCMama said, "stop me" 'cause I may place another order before the day's out!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Everyone: So happy to hear that you guys are using the code!!! :) It is such a nice offer from J.Crew. Also, thank you for the incredibly nice words. It means a lot to me that you guys took time out of your busy schedules to share your lovely comments with me. You really are the best!

    AppGal: That is such a sweet move to email and thank J.Crew. So nice of you! :)

    dinagideon: I couldn't agree more! I love that this promo is applicable to sale & promo items too. It really is great! :)

    Joyce & jcbellemarie & Corry & casual-crew: Thanks for buying in support of the blog! Loves it!!! :)

    IRL: LOL! I do need to get the paperbag!!! ;)

    Elaine: Epic win is right!!! Yeah for us! :)

    FFM: Thank you!!! :)

    Mamaliu: You are so sweet. Thank you!!! :)

    Kat: Thank you! :)

    Maga: Too funny! I agree, love the code. :)

  73. Thanks For Posting the Extra discount for all of us! I Think there are so many of us shopping that Things are flying Out the doors over there.
    IU had something in my shopping Cart that was gone by the time I clicked order.
    IF ANYONE DOESN:T LIKE THE HARRUM PANTS SZ. 6 Shoot me and email!

  74. Happy 2nd birthday JCA! Thank you, Alexis! I adore your blog. I really shouldn't have, but I placed an order;) Wanted to show my support for the blog and JC. I ordered a pair of shorts and the lilac colleto bracelet.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Mmm the crewlade tastes good :D I ordered the pale pink Jenna cardi, the torque moto sweater, and a sale bauble for dd. Thanks jcrew and Alexis!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Well, I bought my first JCrew bag in honor of this lovely blogaversary promo. Thank you again Alexis, this is a wonderful blog community. It has been even more entertaining than usual last night and today, reading everyone's comments. I hope JCrew makes a few extra bucks today and decides showing a little love to the JCAs isn't a bad idea.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Thanks, Alexis for your thorough blog. I picked up a sweater & some earrings. I hope JCrew will realize (if they haven't already) what an impact you make on the JCrew buyer community. Happy 2nd & hopefully JCrew personally gave you somethin'-somethin' ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  78. thanks JCA Alexis.. so nice of you to share this code. A wish of more years to come for JCA!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Thanks Alexis - for sharing the code and for the fabulous blog. What an great gesture from JCrew! I indulged more than I should have but birthdays only come once a year right ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  80. thank you so much! i'm getting the solid ruched lido halter bathing suit top in black. i can't wait.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Congrats on your anniversary and earning your own discount code! I am a regular reader, mostly lurker but had to share my purchase!
    I had a spring rewards card to spend so I decided to take the plunge on the painted silk Bridget dress - have not seen it IRL but we'll see how it goes, I'd love it to work out for the multiple weddings/showers I have this summer.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Placed a second order for bistro pants, LOL. Doubly thanks Alexis!!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Alexis - I am always amazed at how much work you put into this blog without any compensation. Thank you for maintaining this blog, putting out thoughtful and interesting content, AND keeping it civilized. You deserve all the kudos!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. So very cool! Also a bonus for them is they get to track how many many super-loyal J Crew customers follow this blog. ; ) Happy birthday JCA!

    Off to shop now...

    ReplyDelete
  85. Alexis: Happy Birthday to your blog and thank you, thank you, thank you to you and JCrew for this awesome 15% off promotion! I love it! I had a full cart and just pulled the trigger....can't wait to get my new arrivals:)

    ReplyDelete
  86. Alexis, until yesterday I didn't know who you were, but boy! do I know now! You TOTALLY Rock! I just discovered the joys of J Crew and am ecstatic about the Birthday coupon. I may have missed the past two years, but I'm on board now and here to stay. Just got a boat load of stuff: suede averill sandals, denim cut-off short, and sea urchin ring to name a few. A million thanks to you and J Crew:)

    ReplyDelete
  87. How wonderful! This blog *so* deserves its own promo! What a fantasic way to be recognized Alexis! This blog is one of the first things I check in the morning and one of the last before I go to bed. You (an the wonderful members here) have helped me so much with invaluable reviews and advice. Well deserved!

    BTW-I got the leather Vineyard flip-flops with the double promos. Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  88. If I didn't have 3 trips planned for the next 3 months, I would have got more. I wasn't planning on buying anything else this month, but I HAD to support you and JCA! :D I ordered the morning glory tee in salt. So glad I didn't order this last week with the 20% off tees. OT, I did receive the overdyed waterfloral art tee from that order and I really like it. I got the white and it is thin, but it's not to sheer to wear to school. I didn't expect it to have yellow and coral on it, but it does. It fits TTS.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I thought I had done all the damage possible last week when I had a 20% off code in my catalogue, but I found more to order! I was so pleased with the code and I appreciate it so much. Thanks to Alexis and to J. Crew!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Awesome! Thank you so much Alexis!

    Ok, now time to use this coupon! Can anyone tell me how the everyday cardigan fits? I'm generally a small on top, but I have JC sweaters ranging from XS to medium. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  91. This is fantastic, Alexis! Thank you for all of the wonderful work you do to maintain this blog. And, like others, I'm thrilled that you have been acknowledged by J. Crew in this way. I took advantage of it and I picked up some tees for my two sons, the Watercolor pastiche perfect shirt, the Zoey blazer in black (not quite sure about this one, but I'll give it a try. Anyone have it and like it? Hate it?), and the Forever Cardigan in Warm Wheat.

    ReplyDelete
  92. This is amazing Alexis. How awesome that they've acknowledged you. Congrats and Happy 2nd Blogiversary!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I got the tie dye perfect shirt that I've been eyeing...and saved @$22!!! Thanks and Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Alexis, congrats on the blog's 2nd birthday and how awesome that J.Crew acknowledges what a special community this is! You are really providing them a great service -- I hope they're in here peering at the comments. We're their own personal 24/7 focus group!

    I bought:
    - Embossed beach dress in coral (never tried on the petite size, which is what I probably need... the regular beach dress doesn't fit at all!)
    - Seersucker playa dress
    - Tissue mini pocket tee
    - Vineyard flip flops
    - Nubuck flip flops for my fiance

    Thanks again, Alexis!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Whoo-hoo, this promo is awesome! And even better, the recognition for you Alexis, and your wonderful blog and the community that surrounds it.

    I ordered another bling-button cardi, the watercolor pastiche perfect shirt and two double-serge cotton skirts.

    Thank you so much for all you do and for sharing so generously - all the information, reviews and promos. All the best to you Alexis.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I ordered two pairs of catalog-only chinos in Petite 00. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I, too, got caught up in the excitement - sequin stripe henley tank, sequin drizzle tank, cotton cascade ruffle cardigan, skinny leather belt, and two items for winter, Friday coat and bistro skirt, and a little something for hubby when we go somewhere tropical, some cotton-linen pants. Thanks Alexis

    ReplyDelete
  98. Yay! I got the adorable drapey wool skirt for $25 this am! Thanks guys....

    ReplyDelete
  99. Wow, congrats and thanks, Alexis! A free shipping code with no minimum--it's like the Holy Grail of JC promotions! This was an excellent excuse for me to snag a couple of items I've been craving: the featherweight cotton cardi (in the lovely mint color) and the Saturday Twist dress. Thank you J. Crew-- and thank you Alexis for running this fabulous blog!

    ReplyDelete
  100. This made my day! Thank you Alexis and of course, my true Retail Love, J. Crew!! I purchased a bikini, Durham pants, Twyla tank and Dahlia tee. Can't wait for my package to arrive!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Got two pairs of shorts, two dresses (for my upcoming honeymoon!), and the studio jacket. Wasn't even going to buy anything, but had to cash in on some savings with this! Thanks, Alexis!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Thank you for all of your hard work with this blog, Alexis. I too took advantage of the promo. Hope J.Crew continues to honor you-maybe they'll name something after you...I can see the Alexis blazer or ballet flat in the catalogue now!

    ReplyDelete

  108. Thank you so much!

    I had been waiting to pull the trigger on the Ruffled Rainey Blazer and this was the push I need. I hope I love it!

    I also picked up the Canterbury Bells Pencil Skirt and the Dizzy Floral Perfect shirt in neon orange.

    Again, thank you so much!!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Congratulations Alexis! And, that's wonderful J.Crew rewarded you! You totally deserve it!

  110. Congratulations Alexis! Delurking to say thank you to both you and Jcrew! The outpouring of support is just testament to how much you've touched all our lives =) I was able to order the petite khaki Minnies that I've been eyeing for ages!

  111. Many thanks, again, to Alexis for this amazing blog, and to J.Crew for acknowledging her contributions to their success!

    Went for 2 pairs of shorts, the slub polo in orchid shadow, the softspun henley in lagoon green, the Canterbury Bells cardigan, and the Garrison tote. Discount + Free Shipping = Happiness!

  112. I just picked up 2 shirts: the Nailhead Oxford and the Plantation Madras button-down.

    Judging by this site alone (and I know other sites have gotten wind of this code) J. Crew is getting a ton of orders today. I hope they realize it's because of the irresistible combination of Percentage Off and Free Shipping...and offer it again on a regular basis.

  113. Holy CRAP I almost missed this deal. Thank you so much Jcrew, I love you guys!!!

    And thank you Alexis for running such a lovely blog!

  114. In honor of the great present to JCA and Alexis from our beloved JC, I broke down and ordered the Pretty Ruffles Jersey dress in dark pewter. It may prove to be a bit short, but I had to throw some extra business to the Crew for showing love to this blog!

    To all who ordered/ will order the Vineyard flipflips: I LOVE my pair from two or three summers ago, and they still look great. That year they were running big, had to size down to an 8 which was perfect. These little beauts have held up perfectly, and look that little bit more pulled together than my usual Havianas.

  115. If only J.Crew knew how much more money I spent because of this blog.... and how much it has increased my appreciation for J.Crew! A lot of us have even started our own blogs dedicated to reviewing mostly J.Crew pieces based on the friendships and inspiration drawn from this blog!

    Alexis, we know how much time and work you put into this! A much deserved recognition!

    AND, even though I'm 7 months prego, I couldn't resist a pair of chino shorts in the cinnabar orange color for myself and a couple pair for the hubby and son to try!

  116. Alexis, Congratulations. To think that so many retailers spend millions and hire consultant and experts for hundreds and thousands to try to develop the community and enthusiasm you have created here. Nothing trumps sincerity and passion. kudos.

    Thank you JCrew for recognizing this gem.

  118. Alexis, congrats!

    JCAs -- psst! it seems you can use BIRTHDAY multiple times. There were some things I regretted not ordering this morning and it's letting me check out again with the code

  119. Thanks so much Alexis for all your
    hard work! As you can see we all appreciate it immensely. I ordered the Superfine Nouvelle Jacket, cotton check shirt in light slate and the Piera ballet flats with the birthday promo.

    Have a great week and happy anniversary!

  120. Thanks Alexis and happy blog birthday! I've been mostly lurking for the past few months but figured I should say thank you now to you and JCrew. I got a boatload of stuff - suit, tees and a few jackie's. I wouldn't have bought the stuff otherwise. Thanks again!

  121. Happy Birthday JCA. Thank you Alexis. I just ordered 3 bathing suits!! I was holding off, but with 15%, free shipping and a Florida vacation... the timing was perfect. Thanks!! Love this blog.

  122. Thank you J Crew, but mostly thank you Alexis! I have been following since the early days and love your blog and appreciate all of the work you do. THANKS!!!

    Bought the nora pants, torque cardi, denim cut offs and surplus shirt. :)

  123. Man, am I glad I checked one last time before the code expired! The weekend knit pants are down to twenty bucks, so I ordered the sepia to keep my oatmeal and black/shadow company, and on the cheap! I've found myself doing extra loads of laundry to make sure at least one of the pairs I already have are clean at all times... Having an extra pair handy will hopefully cut down some of my comfy-pant OCD.

  124. Thank you again Alexis for your hard work--I am so psyched for you that JCrew recognized the niche you created.

    I placed 2 orders! Linen charter skirt, chino shorts (35% off), flip flops with flowers, glitter petal tee, flutter sleeve....so much stuff to try!

    I ck this blog everyday-great advice and support here! Again, congrats!

  126. Congratulations on your blog's birthday! It was wonderful of J. Crew to recognize your efforts like this. I made a point to make a purchase with this code (right before the deadline!) I ordered the gingham perfect shirt, wildflower tunic top, and a few knit tops that were on sale. Your code saved me almost $44. Thank you.

  127. Thank you Alexis! And thank you Mickey, as always, you are my hero.

  128. Congrats and thank you Alexis (and Happy Birthday to JCA). I definitely made some purchases with this code today! I ordered some flip flops - 20% off promo, and then the additional 15%? Yes please! I also ordered two bathing suits, two perfect fit scoop neck tees, bling button cardigan, and the featherweight cashmere cardigan in the copper clay color - curious to see it IRL. Thanks again!

  129. Hmm, I just skimmed through the comments and, as far as I can tell, there are two identifiably male users and the other 130 seem to be females.

    I have no idea what this means, but, as one of the two guys, I am definitely a little uncomfortable with this.

  130. Alexis - what wonderful gifts ... your blog and the code!

    Placed 2 orders for some CC shoes and tees, printed lieutenant jacket, watercolor floral pastiche skirt, linen charter skirt, fishnet tights and a belt ;0

  131. Robert - Be sure to visit. Heck, bring some friends. Men folk are definitely welcome :-)

  132. Wow, what a fabulous offer! I've been valiantly resisting the crewlade up til now, due to a combination of ridiculous shipping and my surrounding B&Ms never carrying 14/XL/16 in store, but now i have y first piece of cashmere on its way! I snagged the boatneck ladder stich in apricot-- i've been lusting from a far for the riffs on coral they've been putting out *happydance*

  133. Frequent reader and infrequent commenter....thank you so much for sharing this code! I ordered the new embroidered skirt, a perfect shirt and the safari pants !

  134. Congrats on the birthday! I can't believe your baby is two already.

    The code is great. I ordered a second Cayla shell as I adore the white one.

  137. This was the little push I needed to give the Girls' heathered shawl-collar cardigan a shot. Threw in the Crystal Devote Earrings for fun. I just had to celebrate your birthday with you and let J Crew know how much we appreciate you and your blog!

  139. I got my DH 4 pairs of shorts (great deal with 20% off then 15% off on top of that) and 4 tees. I got a pair of shorts, a bikini top and a playa dress for myself.

    Thanks so much Alexis and J Crew!

    I love this blog - my first stop on the internet in the morning!

  140. I just had to leave a little comment saying "Many, many thanks!" to Alexis and to her little blog that could and to J.Crew for duly recognizing such a force that is the JCA blog. :)

    And yes, I place 2 orders yesterday - on with 6 items in it and later with the luxe terry un-sweatpant that I forgot. :p
