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 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. Is that working right now? I almost hope it's not valid on international sites as I really must not buy anything else!!!

    2. argh - so bummed - just bought a the bon voyage tee and crystal cabachon necklace this weekend before this. *shakes fist*

    3. Thanks, Holly. I ordered very quickly. Tortoise & brass link necklace. And the square pave links bracelet, which you can see on Rynetta

  2. I didn't visit J Crew as I'm not in the US, but I did receive an order consisting of the Pixilated Houndstooth Skirt, the Pop Art tee, the Fringed Neon necklace and the Wool Boyfriend jacket.
    All of them are keepers, although the necklace is VERY bright indeed.
    I've posted detailed reviews on these items here
    The houndstooth skirt is particlularly lovely, but the fabric is not going to last long without pulling, which is a shame.

  3. I'm hoping to head in today to pick a few items I've had my eye on. I had a feeling 30% off would be on today so I've been trying to be patient. it is GOODNEWS!

  4. No extra % off at the retail store I visited this weekend. The Factory store had 40% off final sale items and several % off various items.

    Madewell has a 20% off store wide on any knit top - tees and sweaters, as well as 20% off sale items in the store.

    Please enter my spring 2013 giveaway here.

  5. Dolphin bangle! I hardly ever buy the critter jewelry but I was smitten with the dolphin. My store had it. Thankfully I didn't see anything else, there or online this morning in the 30% off sale.

    Does anyone know if those Baggu bags are strong enough for carrying groceries on a regular basis?

    1. Regarding the Baggu bags -- I have two of them, and they've lasted a few years. Usually, my heavier items end up in one of my coated Ikea bags, but the Baggus are fine for most grocery items.

    2. Thank you! I actually really like the idea of using the Ikea bag/s at the grocery store too. I'd like to try the Baggu too, though.

  6. In-Store Price Guide - i.e. fringed neon necklace is $49.99 in-store, pic of the retail only mini locket necklace, sailor pants are $99.99 in-store, etc...
