  2. Me too!

    30% in stores is way better!

  3. There are lots of new markdowns this morning such as the Bubble necklace in citrus lime, Edie attaché in flame and natural, among others. There are also new promo-priced items as well such as the Tessellate necklace, Naomi top, and others. I have updated the women's promo-priced items list here, and will have the men's list updated shortly. :)

  4. Btw, some of the promo-priced items got marked to sale price, so I've noted that on the list, as well.

  5. Great promo for those that cannot get to a store and just want one item:) Happy Fourth of July!

  6. I ordered my very first pencil skirt (in warm jade).

  8. Does anyone know if 30% promo will still be in stores today?

    1. I would call in advance and see if they are even open. I think my store is closed on the 4th.

    2. My store is open today, and they are still running the extra 30% off. I've got a quick exchange to make at Anthropologie, so I'm planning to stop by J.Crew, too.

    3. Seattle area stores are open today until 7.

    1. Thank you for this information! I've been waiting for what seems like forever to buy the navy.

  10. I think free shipping is lame, although it did mean I went ahead and ordered a popback since shipping didn't double the price. What was even lamer is that JCrew dumped my cart again and increased some prices (eg, the Audra sandals are $34.99 in store and have gone back up to fp $98 online).
    Happy 4th of July everyone!

  11. I have a factory cardigan in my cart, so I will probably order that. Besides it I'm not very motivated by just free shipping to buy much. I was hoping for some mark down on something I'd been stalking!

  12. Lots of prices have dropped. The Ella dress in Garden Floral is now $69. I feel final sale right around the corner :>

    1. pathos: I agree with you about final sale. I was surprised they didn't bring it back at the end of June like they did last year, but it will more than likely be any day now this year.

    3. Pathos, I've had final sale at my store (in MI) for quite a few days (maybe even a week?).

      Delete
    4. Alice - Final sale is always put into play in the b&m when they do an additional 30% off sale promo in the store. If the item is on sale and there is no additional markdown, it is usually returnable within 30 days - even if final sale is in play online.

      Delete
  13. Normally, what kind of discoutn is offered during final sale? Do all prices drop? Is there a promo code such as a 'extra 30% off'?

    I've been keeping an eye on a few items online (I live too far from a B&M store), and I want to make sure I buy them at the right time!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Final sale doesn't lower the price but makes the purchase nonreturnable. So you're stuck with it once you buy it :/

      Delete
  14. pathos....I noticed prices have dropped on some items I have bought, but they still aren't lowerer than an additional 30% off. I hope you're right and additional off is coming. It must be....they are adding more and more to sale every day!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I feel that more is added to sale and some stuff that has been on sale dropped price a moderate amount. With that price drop I feel final is coming which makes items nonreturnable. So I'm ordering some things to try for size. But yes. In store is still better.

  15. Funny, I placed an order yesterday and there was no shipping charge! I was excited- I guess they started the promo early. Whatever, I am not complaining.

  16. Well I bit this morning on the cafe capris in navy eyelet, which finally went on sale. I know it will likely go 30% off, but I wanted to be sure of the size and so decided to order now before the dreaded FS hits.... I also ordered the Naomi in navy polka dot. I know - full price - but I couldn't bear the thought of those capris without that lovely top! :-)

  17. I just tried using promo code SALEAWAY and it didn't work, the error message said the code expired or invalid..

    Also, I got an email from shefinds.com with a list of today's big sales and it said that code LOVEIT gives 45% off, but that code didn't work either...

    anyone know what's going on?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. SALEAWAY is for Madewell, not J.Crew. It worked on a mock checkout for me.

      BTW, I have never seen a 45% off code for J.Crew. Very rarely they offer 40% off but that is end of season clearance. Usually it's extra 30% off sale prices or 20-25% promotion on specific items and occasionally your entire order.

      Delete
    2. Me neither. In the 2 years and a bit I have been around, I have seen 40% off twice, I believe, but that was the most.

  18. Lexington KY store had a bunch of Sevielle wedges in Flax, casablanca blue and 1 or 2 reds marked down to $79.95 plus extra 30% off= approx $55. I've been stalking the flax forever. From memory they had sizes 7, 8, 9, 10. Plus a bunch of other shoes reduced. HTH someone!

    1. Thank you! Just did a charge send for the flax color that's still full price ($128) online.

  19. ok, you guys have convinced me to hold off ordering for an additional 30% off! Hope it's soon!

  20. ShopAtHome.com has 10% rebate on J Crew right now. So if you really MUST order, go through this site...

  21. I'm so happy the Green Lucille Dress in Cotton-Silk went onsale. But do I wait and see if it goes 30% off...besides I don't have anywhere to wear it to? Is it too much for a date?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lisa, if you order through the red phone in store, they may honor the 30% off. I think the dress is great for a summer date!

      Delete
    2. I saw a sales associate wear the dress with a little white tee under it and it was perfection! I think the catalog even styled it the same. I think the dress is a perfect summer date dress and with the tee, makes it work for a more casual outing. I'd go for it! If I didn't have the purple eyelet Lucille, I'd get the solid version in a heartbeat.

      Delete
    3. Lisa - I love that dress. It's supposed to go to $99.99 in-store on 7/5. I would totally wear it on a date. I like Pamela's suggestion w/the t-shirt under.

      Delete
    4. Thanks ladies!! With the in-store price, I had to run to my local b&m this morning. I was very pressed for time so I didn't get to order a few things I wanted but I GOT THE DRESS!! :) I also asked about what shirt I could wear under it but the sa didn't have any suggestions except a colored white shirt. I should try that too. Thank you so much...I love the dress!

  22. It sounds like a lot of JCAs think final sale is right around the corner. Do you think they'll offer 30% off final sale? I'm really tempted to purchases a couple items today, but don't want to be kicking myself later this week or next if sale items are 30% off.

    1. Just depends. I would rather pay a bit more and be able to return. I never buy final sale online.

  23. I don't know if there is an additional 30% on the horizon, but I'm forever hopeful and loading my cart in anticipation!

  24. Seahorse necklace ALERT! My store just called to let me know the Seahorse necklace has gone on sale! I asked them to hold it for me when it hit sale.....wasn't that nice of them to call me! Also the nice SA said they are still doing 30% in the store. I don't know what the sale price is....forgot to ask. I'm heading in tomorrow to buy it and also get a price adjustment on the Ultra Eyelet shell that I JUST ordered and will receive tomorrow. I hope I like it! I might find some other goodies too.

  26. SA here... worked again today and snagged the new Oxford Popover in the pretty aqua color in my size... yay! Always a good feeling! Also saw our list of markdowns and noticed the cute seahorse necklace on it. Happy shopping, everyone! :)

  27. Very excited that the ultra eyelet shell and the raindrop lace shirt are on sale, since they vanished from my stores a while ago... but I just wish they were additional 30% of.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Misskitty, how much was the seahorse necklace marked down to?

    ReplyDelete
  29. To be perfectly honest, I can't remember for the life of me... it was a long day, ha ha. The necklace just jumped out at me on the list b/c of the name! I want to say the price is closer to $100 to $120ish now (don't throw rocks at me if I'm waaay off). Glad someone's store is super on the ball to alert them, though! There were several other items of jewelry on the list too, so if you are interested in something definitely call your store or customer service tomorrow to check on a specific piece. It seems like we're really trying to clear stuff out to make room for Fall... Thursday is always the best day to shop (imo) b/c the markdowns are fresh. I will definitely be trying on some things tomorrow after my shift. Ha!

  30. Has anyone seen the bubble necklace on sale in store or the resin frog necklace/bracelet??

  31. FYI,

    the Seahorse necklace is onsale for $89.99
    the Cupcake necklace is now $59.99
    Elephant necklace is $39.99

    Hope that helps! Those $ are all before the 30% sill going on in the store.

  32. I was really happy to see yesterday's free shipping promo, since a bleeding recently tie-dyed tee shirt (it wasn't mine/long story/am still mad) ruined my *brand new* white Factory shorts and my fave blue gingham Perfect Shirt this past weekend. Both items were on sale, and it was nice not to have to pay shipping to replace them.

  33. kms423, can you tell me which store had the elephant and seahorse, and were there any more?

    Thanks!

  35. Hi everyone! Just back from picking up the Seahorse necklace ($62.99 after 30% off) and a couple of vintage tees for $13.99 each. Returned the Ultra Eyelet shell. I got it in chili....love the color, the concept, the eyelet...but it looked like a red box on me. It's very square in cut and with a high neck....really wasn't flattering on me. I stopped by my other B&M where the Seahorse necklace was still locked in the case and FP. so if you're looking to buy it you may have to "remind" the SA it's on sale and extra 30% off. After I returned the new Crew chambray shirt with the little dot (just ill fitting and blah on me)a while ago, I saw a similiar shirt online from GAP called "1969 polka dot boyfriend shirt". I stopped into GAP and they only had Large and X-Large. Then the SA tells me they have a small on hold. I ask to try it on (which didn't really dawn on her and she acted like she wasn't going to let me try it on...I explained I needed to verify size and fit...brother!) anyway....It's adorable! It's shaped and fitted (unlike the Crew one) the sleeves fit my arms (unlike the Crew one) and has big dots which I like so much more than the Crew one. And it's $49.95... So I ask where there is another GAP...they are all far from my house....and then a manager comes up and hears us talking and she says "you can have that one". Apparently the "hold" person put two Smalls on hold, so the manager sold me one. Yah! If you're looking at the Crew chambray shirt with the dots, I'd suggest also checking out the GAP shirt.

  36. I was just at the downtown seattle store and i got the tiered dot tank in xs navy at 39.99 + 30% off *all the colors were on sale. I also got the byzantine blue jackie cardigan xs at 39.99 +30% off. I goto the downtown store everyweek and it appears they have added more sales items. I saw couple of featherweight cashmere cardigans but not in my size.

  37. Did anyone happen to notice if the mini ram bangle was on sale in stores yet (that's the gold one with the double ram's heads with blue eyes)? Or misskitty, do you know? When I checked last week, it was still full price in stores and online. Thanks! :)

    1. Leah, I have been watching the Gap shirt. On Tuesday it sold out in S online. On Wed it popped back. S - XL were availble, no XS. And as of the new promo, GAPBOOM for 25% off thru 7/6, the shirt is not showing up online at all. In case you want to call a store:

  39. @ Leah: the gold ram bangle is not on sale (yet). I was in three J. Crew's between today and yesterday.

    I want to say THANK YOU to everyone on this blog. Over the last few months I have been able to snag some great (sale) items because I was on the lookout for them specifically. Today I was able to get the (sale) Ram bracelet and the seahorse necklace (which I had been waiting to go on sale for MONTHS)! Love this blog!

  41. I finally made it to a b&m a couple of days ago, drove to the Syracuse, NY b&m. I picked up the Tessa in chili (49.99); linen perfect shirt (54.99); puckered dress in peri (69.99) and a pair of soludos (19.99) all before the 30% off discount. Prices in store are so much better. I really have bought too much in the last month but these prices are hard to resist. :)

    They had the Jackie in peri marked at 19.99 and puckered dresses in all colors available were on sale. They also had a few back bow dresses, some white Lucille eyelet dresses, garden floral strapless dress, lots of white cafe capris to name some items. Mostly 0, 00, 2, or 12 sizes.

  42. Good afternoon,
    A nearby B&M had the silk foulard capri for $69.99 and the Raj Paisley for $49.99. I think the cuffed linen trousers had another cut to $39.99?? There were also some solid espadrilles in the sale area were $49.99.
    I'm on the lookout for the Raj Paisley, Sovereign Paisley and Garden Floral pencil skirts in a 00. Also the foulard capri in cotton in a 0. Customer Service and WWFIFY claim OOS. TIA.

  43. I asked about the mini ram bracelet today and it's not on sale. I have it already but haven't removed the tags and was hoping it would go on sale before my 30 days ran out. I'll probably just keep it. don't know if I want to risk waiting for it to go on sale. I bought the last one in the two stores I shop at.

  44. About the Gap polka dot chambray shirt. I think this one has gotten alot of online press. For it to be all sold out except Large and X-Large in my store in Portland, Oregon says that it's been really popular. Things just don't sell out that fast around here. In fact when the Manhatten J. Crew store needs something they've sold out of, they call Portland and sure enough....we got it. Different tastes out here, I guess. So if you want that GAP shirt, don't hesitate.

    ReplyDelete
  45. One more thing about the GAP polka dot shirt....for size reference I wear a 6 in Crew's perfect shirt and I bought a size small in the GAP shirt. Hope that helps!

  46. Glad people are having good luck with sale items - that is a great price for the seahorse necklace after the 30% off! Thanks kms423 for the prices (and for everybody's reports - fun to read). I did some shopping after work and officially bought my oxford popover in aqua, a cute floral headband (sale), the paisley makeup case (sale), and the tiered dot tank in navy (all the colors now on sale at $39.99). The tiered dot tank will be perfect under the million Jackie cardigans I own... lol. Also thanks to StrayCat for the reports on the Gap polka dot chambray - might have to check it out (and feel like a traitor in the process - ha!).

    Helped several customers today who started mentioning the J.Crew blogs they read/stalk for prices... maybe I've even helped a few people on here! What a small world but pretty cool! :)

  47. Can someone confirm the price of the cupcake necklace? It came up full price when the SA scanned it.

  48. OT: Anthropologie also has a polka-dot shirt right now (it's a pullover style) called the Pindot Chambray shirt. I featured both it and the Gap Polka-dot shirt in my 'You Look Very Familiar' post here earlier this week.

    ReplyDelete
  49. @Muffy - the Syracuse, NY b&m had a number of the raj paisley pencil skirts and I think in 00 or 0. They definitely had a lot of items left in 00 or o's. So maybe worth a call. Their customer service is good there. HTH
