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 SPRING sale, or to see some new SUMMER 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. LOOK20 for 20% off fp womens apparel extended thru 5/21. It was supposed to end 5/19, wasn't it?

    In other news, the origami dress in bright berry (?, code is BBE) and the memo dress in the red color are $79.99 in-store. The linen shirt in neon rose is $59.99.

    In-Store Price Guide

    1. UVillage store had 30% off sale items. Lots of cafe capri in pinwheel eyelet (navy), a few No. 2 pencil skirts in double serge cotton in the blue colour.

      A few swoop tops in punk floral left. These are full price.

      I returned the Everly pumps in metallic mirror. They felt tighter on my feet than the suede ones.

    2. Ok, so I'm off. The original end date for LOOK20 has always been 5/21.

      What I know for sure (thanks, Oprah) is that I got the translucent stone necklace in aqua for $69.99 + 30%. Still regular price in-store, but it was price matched.


    3. Wow Gigi! Great deal on that necklace! I would LOVE to find one at that price. Did you order it online or get it at a store? And did your store have any more?

      Thanks for sharing! I wanna go hunt that down...

    4. Sara, I saw the translucent stone in the case at a store. I'm not sure if it was a restock, return or I just hadn't noticed it. I'm not sure if there were others. Email me for store info, gigiofca@gmail.

  2. Didn't go over the weekend, but plan to stop in today as I received an email from my in-store VPS and she said the new items will be instore today (women's) and tomorrow (Men's). There will be new items online on Wednesday according to my on-line VPS.

  3. I grabbed a few tems this weekend from the overflowing sale section. I got the citrus orange print perfect shirt for $69.99, the stripe merino puff sleeve sweater in blush/salt/navy for $39.99 and the twisted enamel link bracelet in frosted citrus for $49.99. All had an additional 30% off of the prices listed. I had to refrain from buying more since most of my size was gone already.

  4. I bit on a monarch tippi, had trouble deciding between colors but got blue with red accented monarchs. also got ankle toothpicks in huron wash, had never even tried them on and was shocked they fit and looked cute! I never try on jcrew jeans, not since they got rid of hipslung style (which I have a lifetime supply of)... plus i never wear ankle length, considering it generally unflattering proportion BUT these are very cute for wearing with sandals especially with heels! So I have joined some club now!

  5. Took the whale tippi in linen home with me this weekend, but now have second thoughts. Although it is extremely cute, I'm not sure how much I'd actually wear this due to its shearness. I tried it on at home with a nude bra, but it still is a bit too sheer for day time, I'm afraid. And with a cami, I just wasn't digging the layered look on me and probably going to be too hot if I layered for our hot summer anyways. Super cute though! Anyone have luck not layering this? Maybe the sheerness is in my head? :)
