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 WINTER sale, or to see some new WINTER/SPRING 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!!! :)

  1. I didn't make it in this weekend, since I didn't get my Rewards card yet. p.s. I do have a few new arrival reviews posted today.

  2. i bought the painter stripe t (#62114) and plain white version (#34082) in small because they were $10 off in the store (plus i had my rewards card)... also bought the fanfare popover in XS even though it was full price... i know i'm going to get a lot of use out of it between layering it now under sweaters and wearing it by itself with shorts in the summer. tried on the scallop sateen skirt (#63860) in both 4 and 6. holy short skirt, batman! i would have take the 6 to wear lower on the hips if i decided to buy it. i wish i paid attention to the hem... maybe it could be let out for another inch of length. if the skirt was knee length, i totally would have bought it. also tried the chiffon skirt (#72299) in the aqua color in a 4... need to size up to a 6 for my thick waist. pretty but not me. i ended up ordering the jardin skirt (#48698) in the new blue color figuring its similar to the chiffon skirt, but a little more casual...

    whew! :)

  3. Yes, went in to return the Jules Waterfloral dress, and picked up the striped boatneck sweater in navy/apricot. Saw it in the catalog and was hoping it was in store - and it was! Love it. Other items coming today ordered through my PS online last Thursday.

  5. shopwithm,

    You don't need your rewards card in hand...or at least I never used to...The store new me so well and would call or look up my rewards for me. My online PS will also do it currently. However, since I have stopped spending much at J.Crew and/or chose not to use my J.Crew credit card I have not gotten a reward in about a year so don't know if current rules have changed..

  6. I wandered to the factory store and found the lula leopard flats (from regular J.Crew, still FP at $138 online) for $39.97 with an additional 30% off. I was so happy! The main reason I go to the factory store is to see if they have any "real" J.Crew on the clearance rack... it was my lucky day!

  8. OT, but is there a code out there for free shipping at Talbots? I really want to buy something but I just can't deal with paying $8 for shipping on a $25 order.

  9. OT re: Website Re-Design = I barely noticed the re-design until JCA pointed it out, and now I just realized that they took away the "All-Time Favorites" section! That was actually one of *my* favorite features of the website because it was mostly made up of their classic pieces and bestsellers (i.e., those items that are still good quality and wear well). I always head there first when I get a rewards card so that I can see where I'll get my money's worth. Boo.

  10. Was kind of disappointed that my local store seems to only have vintage cotton tees, perfect shirts, and Tippi sweaters. I felt like there was almost nothing I hadn't seen before! The salesperson made an odd comment about how JC is threatening to take the Tippi sweater away from them if they don't sell more, which I found strange. I ended up with two of them in Citrus Lime and Succulent Green, although the Citrus Lime may go back - it's not just bright, it's an odd green-yellow tone.

  11. Went to the NYC Prince St store. Kinda depressing since all the sale was sent back, but did get the Minnie's in navy because I got an insane amount of compliments on them in Vibrant Flame. Also caved on two pieces of extraordinary jewelry: the pinwheel necklace, and a cuff bracelet that I no longer see online.

  12. Went to the Towson, MD store. Its gotten a lot bigger since they stopped carrying men's, unfortunately they decided to maintain the same number of items (i.e. they dont have a shoe section or carry coats and have a token item from each category) at an increased volume. Kinda lame.

    I did get the cotton v neck in heather mist in my usual xs. It has a relaxed fit which I really love. Waiting for spring sale/new leather sandals to use the rewards card.

  13. Went to do returns. A lot of great color. NO sale items. Everything has shipped out. I thought the fanfare jacket in navy looked very well done. Online pics don't do it justice. I did not try it on though. It isn't really my style and I could tell it would likely be way too cropped for my height.
