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 SALE, or to see some NEW 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. There's about 15 min left to use SALE30 on the Factory side. Five new reviews in this post.

  3. There was a big sale update this morning, 1580+ items for women. There were some things I was interested in, but couldn't do it without an additional sale percent off.

    1. Same with me! I couldn't justify buying a coat at $300 today that $150 2 days ago. But I do want ti :)

    2. Same here, Cate. I probably shouldn't have even bothered to look, but I couldn't help myself. My cart now has 9 items sitting in it. Nine items for which I searched every day during the 40% off promo. Nine items which were sold out in my desired size/color every time I tried to purchase them over the past week +. Now, they're just sitting there in my cart taunting me. I guess you could say I really don't want them badly enough if I'm not willing to pay 40% more for them today. I just can't bring myself to do it.

    3. totally agree - SO MUCH stuff is now back in stock that was "sold out" when the actual promo was on. sigh. I'm seeing lots of jewelry pieces that I wanted, but I just can't justify it to myself when I know how much cheaper it could have been just days ago. not cool, j. crew.

      Delete
    4. I'm thinking that all these popbacks are due to stores shipping back their clearance to the warehouse. My cart is full of goodies that are now back in stock. I won't push the place order button until I get a promo:(

      Delete
    5. yeah, when I visited a j. crew store last saturday, I tried to get the scoop on whether there would be a promo after all the sale stuff gets shipped back. but no dice. I guess it's just a waiting game for now.

    7. There was also another HUGE update this morning as of 6:00 EST, over 1600 items in the women's sections. Chances are they will see how many folks with bite without the extra discount and then throw in a new sale % off next week.

      Delete
    8. The huge sale section probably will be magically depleted when the sale starts. They must pull things out on purpose sometimes, I'm convinced of it.

  4. How does 40% off in store (or is it 50% off?) sale items work if you the item you want is stocked and available on line?

    ReplyDelete
  5. I saw the J. Crew Tweed Topcoat and jumped on it. Since there was not a percent off I called and asked for a discount and they applied the 40% discount. Amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Does anyone know how much the black quilted mini is in store? It's $119.99 online....wondering if I should pull the trigger...

    ReplyDelete
  7. I know this is not the vent post.. but I need to vent! Have you noticed how many things got restocked after the 40% sale was gone? Kiki in calf hair, ettas, ceces...a ton of jewelry! If they still had the 40% off, I would definitely buy some of these items...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I just read the other comments and saw the same complaints from other JCA fellows... so annoying what they do!

      Delete
    2. Not that I am defending them by any stretch, but I do know that over the past few weeks the stores had been packing up and sending their sale dregs back to the warehouse. Maybe these are the items that have just been returned? But who the heck knows?!!!

      Delete
    3. 1500 plus items. in final sale this morning with no % off. J Crew...you just do not get it .It is Feb. and its ....final sale. Keep your stuff...

      Delete
    4. I noticed the restock too but I am not going to bite. This is ridiculous. A fair way to handle it would be to make it final sale ONLY when there is a percentage off. I agree that the Carrie dress in the Hawaiian print for $16 (like it was last week) should be final sale but more expensive stuff that was half the price last week shouldn't be final sale for those who buy it now...

      Delete
  8. Seriously, J Crew? Saw over 90 jewelry sale items this morning. No extra percent off this old stuff, plus FINAL SALE means no purchases for me. I'm with Unknown, keep your stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Just a warning about some of the jewelry that popped back up this morning. The "painted stone" and "coated stone" necklaces do not wear well. Mine had to be thrown away after 3 wears. :(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. cousy - I had the coated stone. I didn't get 'the feeling' about it and was also worried about the coating. Thanks for confirming because I do see it pop back in the gray, I think.

      Delete
    2. Also the crystal rectangles necklace (now $34.99) is a waste too. I bought two JC necklaces this season that were junk. Never again.

  10. So what's the deal with the bring your old jeans in for 15% off discount? Has anybody seen this offer in the NYC stores?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Ema - Eblandi shared the 15% by-way-of-denim promo. It runs 2/18 - 3/3.

    2. Thank you Gigi, I thought it was already on. I guess I will have to wait to get rid of my old jeans ...

      Delete
  11. I'm not upset about the restock. I knew it was coming, given that the stores that still had stock sent theirs to the warehouse. I'm actually impressed that it was processed this fast. lol Usually it takes a couple of weeks. Hold onto your clicking fingers. I think we'll see an addtl % off online soon.

    On the J. Crew blog, the accessories director is in the maternity toothpicks.

    Good Many George has a new post.

  12. Like someone said above, I know this is not the vent post, but I mailed a return in and got a gift card when I had paid with American Express. J Crew, get your act together!

    1. If they receive a return more than 60 days after ship date, you get a gift card. No credit to your card.

  13. I agree with everyone's comments, so many items and no promo. I did make a purchase in store on Wednesday of a sale item and no % off. But if and when, I highly recommend the Petite Pear Necklace (07335) and Glass Point earrings (a3280) in vintage plum. They are more blue than plum IRL.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hopefully Sunday will bring a better promo. In the interim, I'm taking a break from shopping and checking out the looks from FashionWeek. Marissa Webb's collection is everything I need in my closet http://www.style.com/fashionshows/review/F2014RTW-MWEBB/.

  15. Hi! I am feeling very frustrated right now. I really want the liberty of london scarf in navy (june's meadow print) and the cece flats in vintage blush (9.5). If anyone has these or knows of a store carrying them, please let me know! I am so tired of being outbid on ebay. I should have just purchased the scarf at full price!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Purchased the Tiny Flowers Necklace (item a6548) today in-store. Looked great on a mannequin paired with the Silk Dress in antique floral. (a3849). Didn't get the dress but love the styling idea.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I received this e-mail from the store manager of a JCrew Factory store near me:

    "As a Jcrew Card Holder you have a giftcard that you should receive by Friday. We wanted to invite you to come shop our new collection for spring this Saturday to receive an extra 20% off of $125 or more. Please present this email to get your special discount."

    Needless to say, I will definitely be going to JCrew this weekend! My giftcard from Christmas has been burning a hole in my pocket :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think I will visit this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I went to B&M today and the 25% off items apply in store as well! And they have other random promos like the merino tipped side-panel vneck is priced at $69. And Then the 25% on top of that...along with student discount so I got one at half price! Good deal. :)

    Also tried on Campbell capri it fits great! I wish the solid colors are on promo as well...embroidered stripe tunic (A1313) looks AMAZING in person! It's a substantial/not seethrough fabric so it can definitely double as a short summer dress. Again, wish it was on promo.

    1. Forgot to mention, the SA told me that the jean trade-in for 15% off entire purchase promo is going to start on the 17th-ish in store.

    2. Do know if stores ship? The merino tipped side panel isn't priced down to $69 here in Cali :( I'm dying to the one in light purple

      Delete
    3. I'm not sure! Sorry! Anyone else knows about this?

      Delete
    4. Melly Z - Yes, the stores will do a charge-send for you. However, the prices should be the same nationwide in the US. There may not be signs on the sweaters in-store. I didn't see any for that sweater the other day. If you take it to the register and the promo price is still going, it will automatically ring up for the $69.

  20. Did anyone recieve the $50 giftcard for shipping issues at the holiday? It seems too good to be true!

    1. Hi. I received mine yesterday. It was nicely packaged and included an apology note and a 2014 day planner. I was surprised as I don't even recall having shipping issues during the holidays. I thought it was my rewards card at first.

      Delete
    2. I received the same yesterday. Pleasant surprise since I was so over shopped I didn't bother to file a complaint.

      Delete
    3. I received them too! I was very surprised. I had sent them an email at the time and posted something on Instagram/Twitter so I thought perhaps that was why. I received a refund for shipping at the time even though it was a UPS error, not J.Crew's.

      Delete
    4. I did receive it and it was a nice surprise, since my b-day is tomorrow and J.Crew doesn't give us anything as a lot of other stores do (unless you shop a lot and earn rewards). So it was nice seeing that they value some of the customers that didn't receive their shipment on time, although I am not sure what the criteria was... (did they give it to all customers or just a sample?)

      Delete
    5. I didn't receive it, which is odd considering I bought a pair of jeans which were delivered to the wrong address on Christmas Eve, and I ended up waiting over 3 weeks to actually receive them.

      Delete
    6. Yet again. Something I did not get from jcrew.

      And I still haven't received rewards card yet either. :/

      Delete
  21. I was curious about this too. Did it come in a package or just mail? I have not gotten one but UPS lost my package over the holidays, then I waited 8 days for them to investigate my package and another 4 days for my refund. It was a large order too so I am happy I got a refund.

  22. Hey ladies I need some advice! I ordered the jeweled chandelier sweatshirt in both the grey and ivory color. At first I was in love with the ivory because of the colored jewels, but now I'm leaning towards the grey. I need to make a decision between the two colors so I can return one of them. It would really help if I could get an opinion on what your favorite of the two is because I really can't decide! Thanks :)

    1. I prefer the grey and I defer to our JCA resident expert and reviewer Gigi and she did not like the ivory color. See her review here

      http://www.gigisgoneshopping.com/2013/11/j-crew-jeweled-chandelier-sweatshirt.html

      But I am sure others will weigh in.

    2. @JRSConifer - lol Thanks for the link love.

      @Sam - I can now articulate why I didn't like the creme. It reminded me of pajamas. I liked the jewels, though. The jewel colors are pretty. JCrewIsMyFavStore has the creme and I believe loves it. Not seeing pics on her blog, though.

      Delete
    3. I have my eye on the cream myself. I already have a gray jeweled sweatshirt so that is why. I do really like the gray though. Maybe I need both:)

      Delete
    4. I have the grey and love it. I have seen the cream on several people on IG and liked it, but the color scheme is not for me and a white sweatshirt just screams "spill on me." I will say, my only complaint with the sweatshirt is that the jewels snag on the inside of the sleeves...I am constantly getting stuck and it is annoying. I have to look and see if I can secure the jewel prongs more to prevent this but I have a lot of pulled threads under the arms of the sweatshirt which I'm not loving.

      There are several sets on Polyvore with the ivory to get an idea of pairing. here

      Delete
    5. I have the cream and love it. The only issue I have had with mine is one of the jewels fell off and of course it happens to be one of the jewels not included in the bag of extra jewels. Overall though, I think both colors are lovely, I just felt that the cream was a little more unique given the color scheme, which was the deciding factor for me.

      Delete
    6. I ordered the cream at first & when I tried it on, I thought I looked like a Xmas tree with ornaments on. I ordered the grey and love it! It looks more chic, not overly embellished. Although the cream looks great on some ladies, just not me.

  23. Review of the stripe sleeve tee, which I bought for 25% off w/BRINGSPRING.

  25. Does anyone want the Factory asymmetrical dress in burgundy size 00 before I return it?

    1. Just what I paid for it, which was approx $74 plus whatever it costs to ship to you. Only reason I'm returning is that I received another dress for Christmas in basically the same color :) email me bindi.locke at gmail if you're interested

      Delete
    2. You can go ahead and return. The dress is great and I would love to say yes, but I am not 100% sure if it would fit, and I don't want to be out quite that much if it doesn't. I wish I had an outlet nearby so I could try things, the closest is 3 hours away! Thanks anyway!

  26. Review of the pearl cluster necklace over on 1060 Pairs. Nets $66 w/BRINGSPRING.

  27. OT, but did anyone notice that both the Leather Front Pixie pants and the Pixie Pant in Leather Tuxedo Stripe are back up to full price.

    I got the Leather Front Pixie Pants for $220 cheaper than they are currently selling for (currently selling for $398 and I got them for $298 + 40% off = $178). That kind of price fluctuation is insane to me. Did they mistakenly get marked down?

    1. Blakemdjohns - Promo prices ending in .00 sometimes get marked down to prices ending in .99. Sometimes they go back up to fp before getting put on promo again or getting marked down.

  35. OT, but someone might find it helpful: I had ordered a pair of Darby suede loafers in black about a week ago when they sold for $59.99 (now listed for $99.99). My order was cancelled a few hours after I placed it. These shoes are now back in stock in nearly all sizes. I just minutes ago asked the Live Chat person whether they would still sell them to me for the old sale price, and after I gave her the old order number she wrote "we'll be happy to honor that sale price for you." Voila! Pretty & affordable loafers coming my way, finally :-)
