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 HOLIDAY 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. Hi Alexis,

    I did not visit in person, but I ordered the chiffon top in soft fuchsia after receiving the chiffon top in leopart print in the pewter colour and loving it! Like other JCAs, I avoid final sale like a plague unless I absolutely know my size!

  2. Picked up a heart throb shirt in my usual size 2, and went to wear it for dinner, but too big- boo! Fortunately they had a 0 on popback this morning... :-) Anyone need a size 2 before I take it back to the store?
    Also grabbed a great deal on the engineer stripe tee. Not my favorite design, but for $18 I'll wear it to the grocery store!

    1. It was 109.99 minus 30% I believe. I'm on way to mass. Will check when I get home.

    2. Yes, that's right. With tax it was $82, so that with shipping. Email is kiwigem(at) att (dot) net if you are interested.

    1. Yup, i got one. I thought, what?! No discount code?! Then, what a nice thought, though. Then realized its a mass email and clearly useless.

    2. I got it, too. It was nice. Is the 24-7@jcrew.com a new email address? I don't think I've used it before.

      As much as we have issues with quality and service, you'd think we would have seen some changes. But I don't know the business behind retail and who knows, perhaps they've listened to the changes but it takes nearly a year to carry them out due to production. Who knows.

    3. Yes I got the email too.I was hoping for free shipping or a code too!

    4. Surprised there wasn't some kind of 10% or something. I received so many online promos from every place. Nice gesture, I agree it was nice, but read and deleted. Where is the hook to get customers to return?

  5. I too received the e- mail from Mickey. Was expecting something more like a virtual gift card but it was a nice gesture nonetheless.

  6. Fair isle leggings got marked down this morning (in store) to $59.99. Got them w/ the 30% off so they came out to about $41!

  7. I went to my closest B&M yesterday... the sale section was a whole lot of blah. It looked like the Tippis were the only FP merchandise that were really sold down.

    The Crewlet I went to yesterday was a different story, though -- it was super picked over, mostly just basics and random sale stuff left.

    1. LOL.............that is quite telling, don't you think? Hopefully the $20 cancelled out the kleenex factor for you!

      Delete
    2. Yikes, dryclean it and keep the $20!!!

    3. Not sure who would return such a beautiful coat. I have had mine since they came out..Dublin green. Love it. Such a happy color to wear on those wintry days.
