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. I was excited to try out some of the Peter Pilotto items from Target. Very disappointing. The sweatshirt, which was the one top I was most interested in was huge through the shoulders and narrower through the lower part of the sweatshirt. Bad fit. Tried on some of the other tops and just wasn't wowed by any of them. Didn't try on any of the bottoms. The pants looked super cheap. I did bring home the sleeveless peplum top - it's a jersey type material - it was cute and I thought would look good under some cardigans once the weather warms up. For the price, it'll be a cute little top.

  2. Could not find any specific JCA request but I know I saw some. But if anyone is looking for a Piperlime code 20% site wide, here is one:

    BWRDH9WD12YD valid through 2/28.

    Please post if you use.

  3. Madewell is finally offering a % of sale items again - this time 30% off through February 17th. With over 600 sale items (quite a large sale section for Madewell), there were a few things I couldn't pass up. The Skinny Skinny Sateen Pants are a favourite of mine - they are currently on promo, plus the % off. Worth checking out!

    1. Sorry, I forgot to mention, the Skinny Skinny Sateen pants are on promo in 2 colours only - cypress ruins (darker in person, if IRC), and ivy. Bordeaux (love, but the season is passing) and black are still regular price.

  4. Kate Spade Outlet - The President's Promo is as follows, now thru 2/17:

    40% off all handbags plus an additional 20%
    on select styles

    all clearance is 40% plus an additional 30% off!

    40% off all wallets, jewelery and clothing.

  5. I just saw an ad from ON advertising their Pixie Pants in a pattern very similar to the J Crew ones.

  6. SmAcKdOwN here of metallic bow flats, J. Crew vs Coach. Plus a 25% off offer for Coach.

  7. Old Navy - DEAL gets 30-35% off your order thru Mon. Three tops reviewed here. All thumbs up.
