"Thanks!" to so many of you, including Desert Flower, xoxo, IRL, Kathryn, as well as Miss Penny Z, mommydearest, newyork0311, jbird, GigiOfCa (in this post), who shared the following email that J.Crew sent customers today.
The email features J.Crew's newest top executive, Marissa Webb (Head of Women's Design) as well as J.Crew's Lambskin Motocross Jacket (Item 38891; $895.00).
This is one of those limited, extra-special J.Crew Collection pieces we design that I cannot stop thinking about until I've happily snagged one for myself. Our motorcross jacket is a standout piece in luxurious lambskin leather from a premier Italian tannery that has additional cool details like patch pockets and zips at the wrists. As one of our best customers, I wanted to pass along this gorgeous item before it's available in our 1035 Madison Avenue Collection store or through our online lookbook. It's exactly the kind of iconic investment piece you'll wear today and 10 years from now- I know I will. Click here to see it.Moreover, the email announces a new promotion for free shipping when select customers log-in to their J.Crew accounts. There are two types of emails floating around.
