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!

  3. Visited the new b & m at the new UTC in Sarasota yesterday. Beautiful big store and, contrary to my regular stores up north, very busy. And, every shopper in there was definitely 40+.

    Explodes the myth that "older" JC fans aren't embracing the more fashion forward styles. I saw a lot of Crew on those ladies!

    Plus, I scored a lone Downtown Field Jacket in navy - I have black already - in the sale section in my size for $67! I was thrilled!

    1. Fabulous score on the downtown field jacket! The navy one is my favorite.

    2. Ruffles, was the black on sale too?

      Delete
    3. The black is $110 on sale online with extra 30% off. Navy is $99.99.

    4. Jruby18 - I didn't see any others in the store at all, just the one navy. I'm guessing it was a return but I checked it over carefully.

  4. Wha?? I've been stalking a Downtown Field Jacket! Was the black in the sale section too? Wondering if I should start calling around.

    3. I picked up the black downtown field jacket in smalltall online a day or two around for $77. I love the jacket and already own it in moss. I wear in constantly during this in between weather. So checking online might turn up something, they had several sizes available last time I cruised the site. HTH.

    4. Thank you!! It is still $77 online. Don't know how I missed it!

  5. A quick review of the Mesh Wrap Dress since a few mentioned being interested in how it fits. Got it in the mail yesterday. I've been liking the fit and flare style lately, but this isn't the way it appears on the model in the pic. At least not in me. The style was more sheath-like than fit and flare. The material was lightweight scuba like on the body except for the wrap front which is cotton and more of a pique than mesh. Exposed zipper on the back. It could definitely be okay for a work dress. I got a size 4 and it fit a smidge snug, but that might be b/c I gained a few lbs over the winter, so I'd say TTS. I thought it looked cute, but my husband said it wasn't flattering, so back it goes. It was "okay" but not great IMO. Definitely not a FP item.

    1. Thanks for the review, shame it is not a keeper, I had high hopes for this item

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the review! That sounds considerably different than what I thought from the picture. I think I'd like that silhouette but I'm not sure about the different/scuba-ish material on the back. How was the length?

      Delete
    3. Great review Jruby18 and I'm sad about this one. Not at all what I was hoping or expecting from the photo. I hate exposed zippers in general and especially on dresses!

      Delete
    4. Cate, the length was perfect on me, but actually, now that I'm thinking about it, it might be a little too short for an office environment. When I say perfect on me, I'd say between top of knee and mid-thigh, and I'm about 5'3".

  6. Jcrew factory is offering 40-60% off of everything and you can stack the Gilt city coupon for another 30 % off that. I was thinking of ordering some things for my kids. I was also contemplating the cotton shorts in the green photofloral from retail last year. Has anyone tried those? Curious about fit and the fabric.

    1. Anyone have trouble getting the bar code to print on the Gilt City J Crew Factory voucher? No matter what I try, I cannot get the voucher to print with the bar code. I wonder if the store will accept the coupon without the bar code???

      Delete
    2. Shopalot, I haven't tried printing it out but last time I just used my iphone and that worked. Also, if anyone needs a code I have 4 I won't be using.

      Delete
    3. Lauren, I could use a code if you still have them.

      Delete
    4. Lauren, thank you! I will just show it on my iPhone.

      Also, I noticed the vouchers are still available on Gilt City if anyone needs to "order". Gigi pointed out that you can order up to five vouchers.

    5. Marisa, here is a code: GLTRA72SH.

  7. Something a lil' different. Check out this guest review by ZanyZA of the sleeveless tassel trim dress (on sale). She's 5'9".

  8. If someone can let us know if the stores are stacking the 25% off certain items with the additional 25-30% off your total purchase I would appreciate it. My store is not super close and not sure if it is worth the trip. TIA

  9. I just called my local store and they no longer have 40% off sale. They are just honoring the current 25% or 30% promo depending on what you spend. That stinks!

    1. Thanks DD. I called and got the same response. I want to try on the Metallic Boyfriend Tee for sizing, so may stop by but won't be buying anything from the sale section until it goes back to 40%.

      Delete
  10. Went to the store today, and there is no more 40% extra on sale items, just the current promo for everything.

  11. is jewelry on sale like on the website?

  12. I just bought that collection scoop back shirt which I've been stalking I ordered it in a 4 and hopefully it won't be too tight at the hip!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hi FAF, what color did you order? I have it in size 2, that I just bought last month. Initially tried a 0 last fall, but it was tight around the chest (I'm 36B). Nicely made shirt, what you would expect for a collection piece. :)

  14. No trip to the store for me; but I did do an electronic trip to Factory. New fleece #B8405 in blue; regularly $90 in Canada (yeah I think that price was way too high too) but today with the discount and free shipping just $35.50.

  15. I received my Factory printed Amelia flats with bow in yellow roz floral on Friday. Sadly, these will have to be returned. The toe box is really small and factory does not offer size 11 (one size up). You may consider going up a size in these. They are really stiff so I don't think they will stretch out enough to be comfortable. so sad!!

  16. I got the striped side zip tee dress in store today with price matching from online plus my student discount for $22!! I was thrilled, it's such a flattering dress on.

  17. The Primaloft Vest is such a good deal now at 24.99 after the extra 50% online. Great colors and weight for Spring in a pretty full size run left.
