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 WINTER sale, or to see some new 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 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. It's highly likely since I need a gift/ gift card.

    Some reviews, including that of the Charlie fatigue jacket here.

  2. Probably on Monday since I'm I won't be working. Would like to check out the sale sections and have a couple of returns.

  3. I have about a million items to return so I'll be checking in. Plus my rewards card is burning a whole since I completely forgot to use it when I pulled the trigger on several pop-backs.

  4. I knew it was just a matter of time--Blair at AP has the pixelated houndstooth skirt on today.

    1. I purchased the pixelated houndstooth skirt but I will be returning the skirt today. The main issue is with the material of the skirt. The red/houndstooth part of the skirt have begin to fray and I have not even wore it! The fabric care guide inside say the skirt is hand wash, but I'm afraid the houndstooth part of the skirt would not held up in the wash at all. Be very careful when you inspect the skirt as it might be a one or two season max item.

  5. I'd like to see some of the new arrivals in person, so I'll stop by if I get the chance.

  7. While making some returns Wednesday evening @ the Burlington, MA store, I saw one navy Excursion Quilted Vest, size small in the sale section.
    Maybe it's still there?

  8. I have to go into NYC for my local store, or drive to one of the NJ malls on a Saturday (ugh) so I will probably not be hitting up a store this weekend. I did get my box of goodies from the 30% sale, a few items in an outfit here.

  9. Can anyone please tell me how the most recent rewards cards were mailed out? I did qualify but never got it in mail. Glad they send out email reminders though:)

    3. What did the envelope look like? How did ot come? Thanks.

    4. Mine came in a large white envelope since it had the rewards card and the foldout styleguide/collection booklet for 2013. HTH.

  12. I stopped in and ended up loving the linen Midnight Floral tee, which I didn't expect. The polka dot schoolboy blazer is very cute (though lined in polyester), as is a new textured cotton dress in tan/black polka dots (though short, like a short-sleeved Jules length).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I ordered the Midnight Floral tee so I am glad to hear that it might be a keeper!

      Delete
    2. Yep, I tried on that tan/black polka dots dress in the textured cotton. Although I'm usually a size 0, I tried on a size 2 since there wasn't a size 0 on the rack but I think the 0 would have been a better fit. It was ok-but I thought it made me look wider and I guess I preferred the more casual scatter dot dress from last year.
      I also saw the midnight floral tee but didn't have time to try it on. It did look like linen but on the online description it says cotton. I'm not sure if this floral tee passed the F21 test for me as a FP purchase, but if it goes on sale, I would consider.

      Delete
    3. The dress was cute, but dressier in that heavier mayerial, and that poly lining really bugged me, especially for a warm-weather item.

      Funny about the Midnight floral. It definitely said 100% linen, but it's described online as a soft jersey cotton. Nope, it's a nice slubby linen! CFS phoned it in. I liked that it had both blues and blacks in it.

      Delete
    4. I'm intrigued about this tan/black dot dress. Is the material like the embossed cotton dresses of yore?

      Delete
    5. Now that I'm looking at my fitting room pics, the dress makes me look wide cuz I think I needed a smaller size or a size that was more fitted. It was definitely cute enough for me to try it on and I think maybe if it was belted, or styled, it would look nice. Yep, definitely dressier in that heavier material. The texture is not embossed but more "tweed-like?", like a potato sack texture? (Not that it looks or feels as rough as a potato sack).
      AppGal-I don't have a blog but can send some pics from the fitting room for you if you reply with your email. I don't have a closeup of the texture, but you can see the dress.

  13. I called my store, and they are having a few promos. So I'll probably stop by to see what they have.

  14. Made it to the crewlet this morning for a quick power shop before picking up my son at preschool. They were running 40% off the charley intarsia lobster sweater, 50% off denim, 30% off perfect shirts and 25% off jewelry. They had a city mini in linen in festival green for 40%. I grabbed it off the rack so fast, since I love the city mini and festival green is one of my all time favorite j.crew colors. I got my normal size 2 and feel it fits true to size. It is very nice and lined in cotton, absolutely identical to the retail city mini from last year. It came to 35 and change. Other than that, I did not see any other new arrivals, but I was in a bit of a rush.

    1. I ordered the lobster sweater & even though I paid shipping it was much less than my gas + bazillion in tolls in driving to the outlet. The SA told me that they were selling very well. They've been sold out on the web site for a few weeks.

      Delete
    2. Oooooh, thank you for the heads up! I am loving that lobster sweater and would love to do a charge send (no crewlet nearby). Has anybody seen it in XXS?

      Delete
    3. I saw a xxs as of Wednesday at the Arundel Mills crewlets store 4105792102. Good luck!

    4. Thank you, cuckoo! I am going to try calling as soon as they open!

    1. I am a petite and cannot wear them, but my friend has a couple. They are beautifully tailored and make her look like a million bucks.

    2. Rosie... thank you for responding. I have asked for comments three times now. I guess I am the only one interested in trying them out at the sale. J Crew seem to always charge alot for any collaborations with other sources...I am wondering if they are just overpriced shirts...I am also eyeing the housecoat ....Thanks so much for your comment...

      Delete
    3. Hi Unknown - I second Rosie. The TM shirts are great value on sale. My personal favs are the white tuxedo ones... But all of them are great & long lasting. The fit is impeccable on the tuxedo shirt.

  16. I called a Madewell store to see if they have a scarf in stock and the SA said that while the item is full priced, there is a 30% off promo going on right now which would bring the price down. So it sounds like there may be a promo at Madewell stores right now, perhaps on everything or just accessories or scarves?

    Replies
    1. Shopaholic: Yes, Madewell has 30% off final sale styles (and promo-priced items) plus free shipping on all orders with code LOVEIT at checkout until 2.18.13. I blogged about the sale along with the Madewell promo-priced items list here on my blog today.

    2. Their scarves are often on promo!

  17. I have to return some pants I ordered, so I'll be in there. I was just at the 5th Avenue store on Wednesday and was kind of underwhelmed so I might go to Columbus Circle just to see if their merch selection is any better right now.

  21. OT: There are a lot of new Promo-Priced items online again today. I've updated the list here.

    1. Thanks FFM, so helpful to scan through and see the new promos. I decided to buy the BIENNIAL MEDIUM SATCHEL in Black since it went on promo, I have admired this bag for a long time. Also a No. 2 Pencil showed up in MARRAKECH PURPLE in my size. I was in my B&M yesterday and they did not have the TOOTHPICK JEAN IN YARN-DYED DENIM in Timeless Turquoise yet but they were on sale online, so threw them in bag too to try. Nothing final sale which is good.

  22. Hi Ladies:

    Anyone see or tried on the Sosie top/blouse in stores yet? I love the purple color.
    I'm wondering if its running as big as the Sera top (which looks to be the sleeveless version of it), which a few reviews around blogland have mentioned.

    1. Hi Michelle. The Sosie runs TTS. I bought the white - it is well made but very sheer.

  23. To Unknown- the Tohomas Mason shirts are great! I bought one on sale and am very pleased. IT is 100% cotton but washes like a "no iron" shirt. I don't like the " no-iron" shirts b/c the fabric ( probably b/c of the poly content) feels itchy. These have a nice, somewhat crisp hand and seems to hold their shape better than any others. They still look crisp and not wrinkly by the end of the day. Definitely worth it

  24. OT - I was cleaning out our storage and found some old purses. In one of the purses I found a NWT Crewlet camel/gold herringbone Aline skirt from holiday 2005! Funny thing is my SIL gave me her exact skirt (exact same size!). :)

    On another note, thanks to those with chimed in on the stadium duffle in deep violet. I received it and love it! :)

  25. Has anyone tried the Tybee sandals?

  26. I'm not planning to head to a B&M store but was going to place an order online today. Should've done it yesterday. Apparently, several of the Spring 2013 Tippi's and Tippi Cardigans that applied to the 30% off the last two days now no longer apply today so J.Crew just lost my sale. I am not ordering any of the sweaters I wanted until they are at a sale price. Bummer for me but I guess more money in my pocket...for now at least.

    1. Yes, I noticed that too. I got the heather turquoise and navy tippi the other day on sale, and when I went to look more more colors today I noticed both are back to full price. I hate these sale games.

  27. Went to the factory store today and got the lobster sweater for 40% off original price plus 10% everything in store for the President's day weekend.

  28. Woo! Scored the Everly Calf-Hair pumps for $250 - 30% off, grabbing them for under $200! Thanks Gigi and FFM for your updated promo lists, they are super helpful. :) And thanks Alexis too!!!

  29. I was in the NYC Rockefeller Center store on Friday and there were quite a few of the Jules dresses in the scroll and botanical print. I didn't get a chance to look at sizes, but there were so many of them I'm guessing there had to be a nearly full size run of each.

  31. Bought double cloth funnel coat in bright purple, tippi cardigan in lemon pulp, and boyfriend shirt in strawberry mint. Any one have the funnel coat? How do you like it? I bought it sight unseen so I am a bit nervous, especially since it was on final sale.

    1. P.s. anyone have or seen the bright purple funnel coat? How is the color? Is it more blue or more purple? Keeping my fingers crossed that I like it.....

      Delete
  32. Much love for the Funnel coat over here. Got in it the mint color a few weeks back and now my sis, mum and aunt all own one. There is something about this coat that makes me feel instantly more sophisticated. Could be its streamlined silhouette. I usually wear mine sans belt. And the mint color works wonders with my skin tone. Every time that I wear this coat I get tones of compliments. The best part?, the amazing price that I picked it up for. Do review the purple when you recieve it. I've been contemplating getting that color too.

    5. I called and got a PA for the difference, they were very nice. Hate to have to get the shipment and then do the returns so this was easier.

      Delete
    6. I just called now and they agreed to do the price adjustment as a "1 time courtesy." They were nice but why do they need to note that it is a courtesy? Isn't it better for them to do the adjustment instead of dealing with all the returns?

      Delete
    7. I just re-ordered my item, and will return the one that's already on its way to me. Just didn't want to hassle w/calling CS and begging for an adjustment.

      Thanks for your input on the funnel coat. Mind my asking what your skin tone is. I always wondered how mint color would look on most people since it looks so washed out. I have yellow undertone so I have a hard time finding pastel colors that work.
      Also, I've seen many of your posts on this blog and I think you should start y our own blog. You have great ideas and seem to have flawless style. I would definitely follow you.

      Delete
    9. Sure bella. I'm black but since I too have a serious yellow undertone, I'm hard pressed to find colors that match me. Think somewhere between Beyonce and Kerry Washington, only yellower. The joy of being from a Caribbean island I guess. Yellow is my favorite color and I can barely wear it. That said, I think my more olive complexion works well with the pastels, especially that mint tone. I'm sure a fashion know-it-all will tell you about contrast and what-not but I just know what works for me through trial and error. A lot of errors in the neutral department. lol.

      As for the blog, I have entertained it at the insistence of my friends and family but I'm still in the just contemplating phase. Thank you for the kind words. Though I consider my style far fom flawless, I always try to have fun with it, otherwise what's the point?!
