J.Crew Updates Sale Section

J.Crew has a nice update to their Sale (click here to shop online) section online this morning. Lots of merchandise (1000+ for Women and 570+ for Men).

Now that the EXTRA50 promo ended, there are quite a few items in the sale section. But that is how it goes! I have a feeling there will be another sale-promo-code soon since the last one was so successful in moving out merchandise.

What items are you most excited about and why? Which items are you surprised (or not surprised) to see on sale? Which items did you hope would be included?

  1. I am excited that the Martie boots in black popped back in my size this morning. Although I am bummed I couldn't score them at the 50% off, they probably would have been snatched up before I could have bought them since I haven't been checking the website early. Plus I used my rewards card so they came out to a reasonable price. I am taking a gamble since they are final sale but I have a pretty good handle on how J crew boots fit me and some JCA reviews to help me confirm sizing.

  2. I am AGONIZING right now over whether to buy the Captain Coat in Jeweled Houndstooth. Only my size is left. (I sure wish there had been 6's available during the big sale-on-sale....figures.) I have had my eye on this coat since it came out....but, even discounted, it is a lot of $$! And it's Final Sale. UGH!

    1. I share your agony Julie. I'm doing the same with the Collection Italian silk shirtdress ... it's not even my exact size ... final sale

    2. I think it is worth it for you two to ask Customer Service to honor the 50% discount.

    3. I don't think CS will honor it, but the stores are running 30% off md, so you can try asking a store to order from the online inventory and honor the instore addl discount....

    4. I think the Captain Coat is beautiful but personally would not get ot because if the jewel collar. I know it will snag in my hair and possibly my clothing and I think it reduces both the practicality and longevity of the coat. The jewels may come off and the jewel collar trend is, well, a trend. Just my two cents!

    5. I have the Captian's Coat you are talking about. I am normally a size 12 in schoolboy blazers but have a 10 in this coat, so I think it runs big. It is a beautiful coat. I have naturally curly hair and when I wear this coat I make sure that my hair is up because it does catch in the jewels on the collar. I got this coat at the Arden Warehouse store for about $100.00 so definately worth a little hair pulling. Also, I called CS today and ordered an item that was on popback and they honored the 50% off when I asked. I called the JCrew CC line number so I think they do more for you on that number than on the regular 800 number since they know you have a JCrew credit card. Hope this helps.

    6. Thank you Unknown & Snowbrdgrl for your exhortations. I tried calling the JC card member # and requested them to extend the promo to the Italian shirtdress that was now in stock. After a brief check I was declined =( with a firm but polite "the promo has ended."

      They didn't want to offer the promo on this Collection item - this much is clear. Before the promo it was available in a size 2 and a size 6. During the promo the item disappeared off their website. After the promo ended, the same sz 2 and sz 6 reappeared in the Sale section.

      I tried. Thanks all!

  3. I have moved on - new arrivals come out next week. I just preordered a camo sweatshirt (A4378 - $68) and a pencil skirt (A3239 - $118) in an interesting navy/green/blush print. Hopefully they will arrive in the next few days.

    4. @cate - It varies. Often my local store will have the new rollout on the floor before the catalog comes out. I also occasionally get the catalog early from either my VPS or my local store manager.

      Today, my VPS just called me with items to consider. In addition to the two items I purchased, she also suggested a camo jacket (longer than the boyfriend version), an orange trench coat, and chambray flats in both the Kiki and Emma styles.

      I was surprised that camo was still in for spring. I like it, but I cannot see having multiples.

  5. The first of my 50% off items arrived--a double cloth Metro coat with Thinsulate in dark camel. Well. I'm glad I ordered it. As usual, I sized up from my "normal" size, and it fits. The "dark" camel isn't too dark--it is still certifiably camel, and will be a classic workhorse in my closet. Happy. Good deal for $150.

  6. So this is more of a vent but finally got a shipment notification on my 50% off order placed on Sat. I ordered 9 items using my rewards card and the balance on my j crew card. As of now 5 out of the 9 items shipped and rest will more than likely be cancelled. The five items shipped were billed to my credit card and none of the rewards card was applied. Assuming the other items get cancelled as they are coming from stores I am stuck with a rewards card balance that I really wanted to spend and could have easily been applied to the 5 items that shipped. Now I am stuck with a higher charge on my credit card than anticipated and a decent size rewards card balance. Just a way for them to make me buy more since the card has an expiration. Do you think if I call CS there is anything they can do about it? I just don't know why the rewards were not applied before the credit card.

    1. Definitely call customer service. I'm sure they'll help you out if they can.

    2. I think your order will be fine. I did the same thing with my order - the first shipment email I received showed a credit card charge. The 2nd shipment email showed the rewards card plus remainder on the credit card. Definitely call CS if it doesn't work in your favor.

  11. Just wanted to say a big "thanks" to everyone who professed their love for the bi-stretch wool minnies. Based on your recs and sizing advice, I took a final sale gamble on the heather olive color and it paid off -- I love them! They were absolutely a steal at $30 (half off $59.99), now I want multiples. :)

  15. Thanks Gigi and Mel. Not sure what I am going to be spending my rewards on, nothing is calling out to me too much lately. I actually glanced through the March, 2012 and 2013 catalogs tonight. There were some lovely items!! Great article too but most of the savvy JCAs seem to be waiting for a J Crew promo before they buy FP.

    1. JRSConifer - The article seems so dated, but I guess not everyone had the info.
