Weekly Share: Other JCrew-like Retailers

This is the weekly "Other JCrew-like Retailers" post (similar to the "Off On A Tangent" posts), where we can share our finds from other retailers that have offerings similar to J.Crew (like Anthropologie, LE Canvas, Gap, BR, Talbots, Ann Taylor, and the like.)

If you have recently encountered items that are similar to J.Crew, maybe you might be willing to share that information with us in this post.

Please feel free to share your story on almost any topic— including experiences with certain merchandise pieces, promotions/ offers, in-store visits, transactions with store associates, etc.


  1. Groopdealz - translucent stone bracelet $4.99 and the fan fringe necklace I mentioned the other day, $15.99. Both are JC knockoffs.

    I only have the beaded rosette knockoff from Groopdealz. I'm very happy with it. The only qualm is that the weight of the rosettes make them fold forward away from my chest. Instead of laying flat all the time. I can live with it.

  2. Banana Republic - 40% off one full-price item with JTHZY8PJC2MX. Good today only.

    1. Here's another: WYNB6ZXGCHKM

    2. Here are 2 more BR codes:


    3. I really like BR's "timeless tank". Cotton/spandex, not too long, straps that are wide enough to hide brastraps. And with 40% off they come to $12. They have very good reviews on BR's site. If you're in need of a basic tank, I recommend checking them out!

  3. Stopped by the Gap last night. They have some really nice summer blazers in dot, chambray and stripe with white buttons with some linen content. $88 & $98. Right now they are running a Promo for cardholders for 40% off 1 full price item. And 30% off total order

  4. Boden fans, two things. :)

    1. The Boden Fall Preview ends on Friday, at midnight. This is a short turnaround, in the past we have had more time to decide what to buy. Anyhow, I nearly forgot, so I figured some of you needed the reminder, too. I did a dresses, knitwear, and pants "picks" post recently, and hope to get the rest of the "picks" posts done before Friday. You can see more on the preview at this post, which also includes info on how to receive the 20% off with free ship and returns.

    2. The current spring/summer line is having a big dresses sale (all dresses: women, girl, baby, teen). All dresses are 30% off, and if you use the Boden link in my sidebar, you will receive free shipping. This promo ends tonight, and if I am successful in my plan for today, my Boden review roundup should be done by early afternoon, which will include a few dress reviews. (When I do finish it, I will comment with the link.) I have more info on the dresses sale here at this post.

    Hope this helps someone. :)

  5. Some J.Crew-like items in my 'You Look Very Familiar...' post here. :)

  6. Thought I would pass this along since I love the Everlane tees. If someone is looking for a basic sandal, Made in USA.

  7. I have a 25% off Coach code online and in store. Please email me if you are interested josanne955 at gmail dot com. Ends 6/19.

  8. I was in a BR store to take advantage of the 30% off for today. Got a Milly collection polo shirt but the cashier told me it wasn't part of the discount. So I did not take it and left the store. After 20 mins. returned again to check out another item and the salesman recognized me and asked if I really wanted the polo. I told him I would get it if it was 30% off and he gave it to me. Really love the retro design, the material and the fit plus I got the discount!
