Sought & Found: Did you visit J.Crew this {past} 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 stopped by a J.Crew store this past 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 was/ is carrying an additional percent off sale. Thanks in advance!!! :)

  2. I want that camel jacket cape in melton! I hope it's offered in petite.

    1. We are the same height and I want the cape as well. My friend thinks the cape that a snotty/pretentious vibe. Thoughts? It doesn't come in petite according to the catalog copy; only XS-XL. I love how that model is styled.

    2. Hi Wendy - I don't think it gives off that pretentious/snooty vibe. I've always liked capes ever since SJP's character wore a vintage nurse's cape on SATC.

      It's versatile, too. You live in the bay area right? Perfect layering piece, not bulky at all. I hope size XS fits us. :)

      Yeah, I like how it is styled, too. How much does it cost? I don't have a copy of the style guide.

    3. ...as long as its worn casual like how its styled; with jeans, cotton top, and or a jean jacket, it won't give off that vibe.

    4. it costs $250 and it comes in black as well. I agree with you on just keeping it casual. Yes, I live in the Bay Area and the weather here has been so mild, that I actually miss a 'real Bay Area winter'...I hope I don't jinx myself by saying that and then it rains for days on end in Dec, although we do need the rain.

    5. OMG, I was dying Saturday and Sunday...so hot! I was not happy at all. 80-90 is too much for this SF girl. Glad the fog is back.

      Thanks for the info. I like a lot from this roll-out. Cape, Icon trench-which they now make in petite, Stripe boatneck, Sleeveless trench jumpsuit, Leather moto jacket in navy, Donegal blazer, leather loafer in navy (reminds me of Everlane's), and the Sloane flats in snakeskin. :)

      I can't wait to see the new stuff online tonight!

    6. YES! It was WAAY TOO HOT this weekend! We went to Off the Grid and it was even hot there! No breeze until 2. Then is was perfect. There are more things to like in this rollout, but the cape is my favorite. I'm hoping for a promo...hee hee...

    7. Just ordered the cape with 30% off. I have a feeling it's going to be too long. It's 33.5 inches from shoulder and hits mid thigh. But I want to try it out.

  3. I ended up visiting the Factory store near me. I tried on a flannel shirt (the Aztec print) and the Factory Pleated Wool Fleck Mini Skirt. There were a lot of great new arrivals. There is a brightly colored flannel shirt that seems to be in store only, a mix of pink, white, and blue and maybe purple? Really cute though.

    I ended up placing an online order for three different plaid flannel shirts, the wool skirt, and the navy Quilted Jacket all with the Gilt coupon. I also have a navy Factory Excursion vest and the wool (fake) gray Excursion vest coming this week. Fingers crossed that something works out!

  4. Stopped by the newly renovated store in Bethesda MD that just opened today. Glanced around no time to try stuff but they had some new fall arrivals from the upcoming roll out. Some things that caught my eye: sateen toothpicks? Cobalt lace top, stripe tee with suede shoulder patches, tippi with lace shoulder embellishment, another print with shades of blue purple pink in a camisole, skirt.

  5. And most of the button downs/flannel seen on Pinterest- I liked the rock port plaid boy shirt and some of the other vertical stripe button downs. Hope to return at some point for some try ons.

  6. Got a response from Comenity about my rewards- "We issued out a reward for $25.00 in July. It is valid through 09/15/2015. Please let the sales associate know that you have a reward.
    They can look it up and apply it towards your purchase. We do apologize
    for any inconveniences this may have caused."

    So apparently my reward isn't even good til Sept 30th like the banner ad below the Reward link says? And I'm supposed to, what, contact J.Crew after ordering online to apply it to an online purchase? Have never had this much hassle with rewards before and am about to give it up.

  7. I received my rewards card in the mail today. Good through sept 30th.

  9. Was able to place an order 10:30 MST, for some new arrivals and downtown field jacket with 30% off and Free Shipping. Used the SHOPMORE code which applied the 30% discount.

    1. Worked for me too! Thank you!

    2. Ha! I told you it would work. Thanks computer glitch. I was able to order the Melton cape in camel, the collection leather moto jacket in navy, the robertson kiss tee, and the stripe boatneck. :)

      @Wendy - Did you order the melton cape, too? In what color?

      Delete
    3. Yay, JRS! What color downtown field jacket did you order?

      Delete
    4. @jsr-I ordered the camel in the xs. I have nagging feeling it's going to be too long on a shortie like me. Can't hurt to try, right? You'll have to let me know how the cape works out for you.

      Delete
    5. Thanks for the tip! I grabbed the silk v neck in petal, pleated midi in that rust color and a mixed tape cardi in the same... Kind of regretting not getting that burgundy field jacket but my rewards will make up for it next quarter I guess. I was just about to go to bed but looked here one more time and glad I checked :)

      Delete
    6. @RJ - Good you checked and that you were able to order what you wanted! :)

      @Wendy - ugh I didn't think about the length. From the online photo, the cape's length does hit the model through her mid upper leg. Hope she's six feet tall and wearing a size M/L.

      I regret not ordering the Icon trench since they carry it in petite. That is one item that will never go on promo or sale. I did a mock check-out, and the shop more promo worked.

      Delete
    7. JSR---the copy for the cape states that it's 33.5 inches long. I measured the length from my shoulder and it comes to mid thigh on me. Maybe the xs will be a bit shorter? Did you but the petite icon trench?

      Delete
    8. Glad it worked for you all too. I got the downtown in burgundy in small & medium petite. Also, picked up the boy shirt in watercolor floral and perfect shirt in heathered grey. It even said on my order that the items were not eligible for promo but the price reflected the discount.

      Delete
    9. Oh and JSR I love the navy leather jacket, you must post a review when you get it.

      Delete
    10. @JRS - Will do! I'll post a review the second I receive it.

      @Wendy - I regret not ordering the icon trench. It's a classic jacket, I should've. The cape and moto jacket might not even work, due to fit (not being petite). Oh well, hopefully next month's roll-out, I'll try ordering the icon.

      Delete
  10. Still no crazy sequined blazer/skirt/tunic. Any idea when the next rollout's coming our way?

  11. I like 3 pieces from this rollout, neither a must, even with the 30% off that is still working....Might pick them up on sale-on-sale if still available.
