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 (if anything!) in the HOLIDAY sale, or to see some new WINTER 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'm pretty sure I saw it at Washinton Square in Oregon this afternoon. They had several peplum tops, all in large and extra large, I can't remember which color was which size though.

    2. Polaris in Columbus Oh had a slew of them. I'd be shocked if they didn't have a L in there.

      You can use the boxing30 code on this! Hope this helps.

    2. SPG, I think that's just Canadian stores. My local store in CA had 30% off yesterday. HTH!

    3. I just was at the Robson St. store to check out the 50% 0ff deals. The sale section is bursting. Lots of cahsmere on sale. It was just staring to get busy when I left. I made out with the navy tipped hacking jacket ($75), striped tissue turtle neck ($10), black cashmere turtleneck ($75), Boy shirt in poppy plaid ($37, wool plaid scarf ($20) and a to die for blue/green collection cashmere turtleneck sweater -not sure what style as I don't remember seeing it online before- for ($140). All prices are in CDN and with the discount applied. Good luck!

  3. I went on Wednesday and had some in-store markdown prices for a few things that were cheaper than the website:
    Liberty Crystal Braid Bracelet, $9.99
    Colorblock Top in Stripe, $19.99
    Schoolboy Blazer, Wool, $89.99
    Crystal Bow Buckle Belt, $29.99
    Lustre Lace Mockneck Tee, I *think* was $59.99 or $69.99. Runs big.

  4. Yes, to return. I saved $60 by reordering some items I bought before Xmas using the boxing30 code (I am in the US).

  5. OT, but did anyone else hear about the NYTimes OpEd from Mickey?

    3. This. Jcrew is awful when it comes to online shipping/service, even though they charge $8.95! Similar issues have plagued JCA's and I bet Mr. Drexler is seething that it made it into the NYT! Maybe they will finally get their act together?!?

      Delete
    4. It's yet to happen to me, but I hold my breath each time an order arrives as I've read many, many horror/hilarious "misship" stories!

    5. Their shipping errors may hardly be the "norm" but it occurs way too often.
      Surprising, out of all the packages that I received this year, they only messed up two. Last year it was something like 5 or 6. I wonder if they are getting better or whether the misery of their shipping errors was just spread out more...

      On another note the website SheFinds has J. Crew on their loist of 12 Collaborations That Did Not Live Up To The Hype In 2012, twice. Once for Altuzarra (I loved the striped dress and top, on sale) and once for the Manolo Blahnik one, where they ended up with cake on their face.

  7. I have just come back from visiting my 3 local stores. The sale is still 30% off, final sale, and the stock levels are pretty high IMO. I picked up the stovepipe pants in the check pattern for $49.00 less 30% off, and my educator discount.I have had my eye on them for a while. AJC reviewed them on her great blog. I did notice that the sale merchandise was interspersed throughout the store, so it is definitely worth a quick glance online to see what is on sale before you shop!

  8. Boxing30 cde worked fr me too, i live in us. Got schoolboy in modern red, tall minnies in flame and bubble necklace in kelly greeen! Have been stalking these for loooong while, finally caved in! Xxx thanks guys for the code and saving me some $$$$$$$$$$$$

  9. I just got an email telling me my WWFI was unsuccessful. Meanwhile, I'd seen the item back on their website and ordered it myself. I'm not sure they even bothered to look . . . .

  11. Just got back from the Toronto Eaton Centre after a huge haul, all at 50% off (sale items). Cashmere galore, toothpick cords, Fair Isle leggings, cashmere and polka dot snoods (sooo cute!), and Perfect shirts. I'm a happy canuck! Still lots of inventory and sizes, but be prepared to wait 30+ minutes for a fitting room. Happy shopping!

  13. Palo Alto store has 1 xs excursion vest left in the herringbone pattern and 2 xl. No more 30% off promo...full price still.

  14. Apparently the Lynchburg team believes that I have overindulged - and sent a dress 3 sizes larger than what I had ordered. So, I will be heading in to return the dress and a bunch of other items - mostly due to color issues.

  15. returns... mostly minor disappointments, but I don't want to start off 2013 in a state of irritation.

  16. The Boxing Day promo works in the US. I just used it no problem.

  17. This is somewhat off-topic, but do they usually have any good sales for New Year's?

  18. I stopped in today to return and had to try on the Jules dress in Scroll Print. The yellow/gold looked ghastly against my ruddy complexion, but the dress is absolutely gorgeous and it's going to look great on others.

    2. Cate, what sort of yellow is it? Brownish? Neon?

      Delete
    3. It's a saturated yellow-gold. I read someone describe it as mustard, but I thought gold when I saw it. Not brownish, and I wouldn't say neon either. It's really very pretty.

      Delete
    4. I agree with cate, it is a real sunny yellow not mustardy at all. The yellow is darker on the shorts, probably because of the heavier fabric.

  21. Hi JCAs,
    I seem to remember reading that some of you were lucky enough to get coupon codes for a percentage off your next order from JCrew. If you're not going to be using one and would like a Coach 25% off full price items code instead (expires 30 Dec), please email me at maqsadshop at gmail dot com. TIA!

  22. masqad, i have used the same code twice and it appears to be the same code on all the flyers I got. It is either GIFTFRIEND12 or FRIENDGIFT12. I am sure anyone can use it. HTH!

    1. The fine print says: Offer valid on orders shipping outside the U.S. only. Did anyone get codes that work for U.S. orders or can confirm that these do work for U.S. orders?

      Here is the full fine print text:

  24. Do Jcrew vintage pajamas in flannel gingham run small or big? I am normally a size small in the perfect shirt and a size 6 on bottoms, if this helps as a reference.

  25. i bought the flannel stripe pj in small petite. i think i could have sized down,

    ReplyDelete
  26. @ShopLV - how is the quality of the pj's? Are they see-through? I am on the fence on purchasing the gingham flannel pi's and my local brick and mortal store is sold out, so I would have to purchase online. Thank you so much for your thoughts!!

    1. They are nice quality and very comfy. They are not see-thru at all. I am actually wearing them now! I bought my usual size XS, so I believe they are TTS.

    2. I have not worn or wash mine yet. The quality seem nice and they are very soft- not see though. It is definitely a light weight flannel though- not your typical thick flannel pjs. I got the green/navy stripe and love the colors!

  29. Hello, I tried BOXING30 and it worked for me (shipping within US). I saved $50 on my order and I wanted to thank everyone for posting their codes and ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Another thank you for the promo code! I was able to get the Mackintosh® Rousay tattersall coat on pop back in my size. Super happy to have got it for $560. I saved about $240 from the sale price thanks to that code. Also for some reason it didn't come up final sale which is also great! I havent seen any reviews online for it so hoping its a winner. Was planning to head to the store to make a ton of returns from the last few great promos, but snow is headed here in MA. Will be heading to Natick tomorrow.

    2. You may be right. Maybe I didn't go far enough? I didn't want to the order to go through, though, without the discount, so I bailed out on it.

      Delete
    3. Just so you know you have one hour to cancel an order. If you check your online account and select the order you will see a timer on top that tells you how much time you have left to cancel. You can cancel it right online.

    4. Oh I didn't know that, thank you! I love this board, always learning something :-)

      Delete
    5. Yes, definitely don't cancel it over the phone. They'll give you an earful about how it might not work, blah blah blah, they'll make an exception and try, etc. etc. I get that even if it's only been 30 minutes since I placed the order.

  34. FYI...

    The Lansing, MI store had a ton of fair isle leggings left. I'm pretty sure they had a full size run. Also had lots of Jules dresses in heathered wool in red (69.99x30% off = $49). Tons of colorblock oxfords in both colorways ($17 after discount).

    ReplyDelete
  35. I went to the store briefly to try to get the Lulu Forst pink pendant, which is on sale online (when it is in stock). The sales rep couldn't find it online--the pendant is full price in stores (so sick of the inconsistency).

    The red phone was occupied.

    He then tried to punch in a bunch of numbers to get the SKU to see the online price.

    Then he wanted to call customer service, but the phone was occupied.

    I finally went home because I couldn't wait another 15 minutes.

  36. Kiwigem....I looked in the mirror and my own eyes said to me "direct your energies into something else except shopping for clothes you don't need". I really slowed it down last year and I'll continue to do so. So you are not alone....I'll be wearing what I have with maybe the occassional purchase. I know that I won't be going crazy and purchasing anything at F/P. I learned that last January. Everything I bought on F/P went on deep sale and I vowed to not do that again!

    1. Straycat, I am with you. I have looked online and in the store on Friday and nothing screamed 'Must Have', even at great discounts. I did purchase some lovely items from J Crew this year. All on sale or with a discount, tried to stick with pieces that will stand the test of time. I realized I will never be cold again, here in Colorado layering in the only way to go. So even though I was tempted by some lovely thick sweaters I said 'NO'. I got some gift cards for Xmas and will wait until that special something calls my name.

    2. LOL! Well having finally gotten back into "fighting shape" after having 5 kids in 10 years, I did "need" to do some wardrobe building. We used to joke that our walk- in closet looked as though I had moved out; his side jammed and encroaching on my near-empty side. It was fun while it lasted, but now he's right- I NEED to be DONE shopping. Well, as soon as I get my hands on a luxe silk blouse in pewter. :-)

  38. My b&m is tiny, so new arrivals were scant. The store did have the scroll print jules, though. I was surprised by how thin and flimsy the dress is. I know it's crepe de chine, but this fabric was ultra fine (and I don't me that in a positive sense). Also, I don't think it's lined. $198 is an awful lot to ask for that garment.

    And, as others have noted, the latest 'style guide' fails to inspire.

    OT: Talbots has their spring lookbook posted on their website. Several J Crew jewelry look-a-likes.
