Join J.Crew on November 20th to Check Out New Arrivals!

J.Crew sent out an email letting customers know that brick & mortar stores will be offering a "First Look Event" on November 20, 2015 from 8AM to 10AM.

In addition to having all the latest arrivals on the floor, ready to purchase, J.Crew will be offering light refreshments.

I have been to these "events" before and they are kind of meh. But if you happen to be there, then it's worth picking up a treat or two while browsing. ;)

Will you be stopping by your local J.Crew to check out the new arrivals? Are there any new arrivals you are in love with? If so, please share! :)

  1. I got the new holiday catalog. Velvet Gemmas, dark green chateau parka, collection sequin buffalo plaid pants and shirt. Lots of plaid as I remember. The black statement earring that Jenna wore in the Canadian interview are also in there.

    2. WOW.....again you are the luckiest JCA. guides and a warehouse near by. I am seriously envious of you. Can you tell us more about the new catalog? thanks . C

    3. i fell in love with so many things from the new holiday catalog. i was drooling over all of the blazers in new fabrics and ordered a couple of items with the 30% off! i'm so excited for the lace blouse and all the plaid items!

  2. Why does final sale appear to be back already?!?! Was going to purchase the leather sleeve sweater as a dress I wanted popped back but the sweater is now final sale and I am not taking the chance as the fit seems boxy. The dress was not coming up FS.

    2. final sale is a very big....NO for me.

    3. I agree, stuff in my cart turned final sale overnight (even the one where only 30% off and not 50% off applies). Who at JCREW thought it was a good idea approaching the holidays?

    4. i saw the rhodes houndstooth jacket and a tweed blazer marked final sale after they'd only been marked down once and then 30%. I called them and they waived final sale for me once I explained how ridiculous that was.

    5. Agree Ema. Here is your gift. Sorry you can't return it if it doesn't fit or is not your style. Why do they always seem to shoot themselves in the foot? Glad I grabbed most of the things I wanted last week. Everything else I can do without.

    6. My issue is that it is only 30% off. I'm willing to play the game for 40 or 50 percent off. I can always take that extra savings and have something altered, but no, I am not going to do it for 25 or 30 percent off. JCrew can kick rocks.

      Also when items are recently marked down and have less reviews to go by, it far too much of a gamble.

    9. I thought final sale didn't happen until after Christmas. Also why is there a separate 50% off final sale section if the the regular 30% off sale section is also final sale. I had a couple of items in my cart but I don't want them enough to argue with CS about them being final sale now.

    10. In the past, Final Sale came back the day before Christmas, when it was too late to get packages via express delivery (never mind the fact that giving people JC gift cards only to be confronted with final sale on Christmas Day was lousy, but that's a separate gripe). Something's probably wrong with the site. If this is intentional and they are going to retain final sale during the holiday season, that's not going to help their numbers.

    11. Someone flipped the switch halfway. As Ema pointed out, SHOPNOW is not giving 50% off many of the items they marked final sale.

    12. JessF - If it helps at all, I tried that leather-sleeve sweater yesterday and didn't find it terribly boxy, in the smaller of my usual Crew sizes. I did think it was a tad shorter than I wanted, at 5'7", but it was soft and comfy. The leather panels are strangely long imo, and make it difficult to push up the sleeves. I passed because I wanted something longer.

      Delete
    13. Final sale before the holiday is ridiculous! There are several pants that I want to try but the sizing has been crazy lately. I will not risk unless I get the ok to return in advance from customer service.

  3. A lot of what I saw in the catalog is stuff that is already out I think. There were a few new pieces and some new shoes and jewelry. They just "holidayed it up" if that makes sense. The buffalo plaid sequin pants look very intriguing. The are red and black and they look like they are covered with clear sequins and the same with the button up shirt. They are collection and fairly pricey. The velvet Gemmas are like a redwood, maroon color. I really liked them. The model on the front of the catalog has on the stewart plaid perfect shirt with stewart plaid pants and a plaid bow tie. I think there is also a new plaid campbell blazer in stewart plaid. Like I said, lots and lots of plaid with touches of red in a lot of the accessories. Also, I hate to tell you this but I just found out I am going to Clemson tomorrow and it takes me right by the clearance store. Score!!! Does anyone have suggestions for what to do/eat in Clemson, SC? I know Clemson plays Wake Forrest but I will not be attending the game.

    3. The plaid Campbell is on the JCREW IG (the post is intended to advertise the "pocket dial" designed by Jimmy Fallon but the blazer worn by the female model is stealing the show...)

  4. I didn't get this email, but i am stopping by my B&M to return stuff. Good thing I saw this, Thanks for posting Alexis!

  5. Just re read email. this is this friday. black friday is next friday ? this is an early bird event. anyone have any info on the promos instore ?

    ReplyDelete
  6. I wonder if this is a preview for next week's rollout or just an event for the current stuff? "First look" implies a preview...I know there's a rollout next week (I'm guessing smaller).

    I asked in store last week about the Black Friday deals, the SA said they didn't have any confirmation on what they were doing yet...so that was no help. I can't imagine they wouldn't know.

    I know weekends are a zoo at the mall but this would be a better event on a Saturday, unless I went before work it's not happening.

  7. Okay, I like shopping as much as the next person, but I don't know what JCrew is thinking if they believe I'm waking up hours early before work on such slight a temptation as "light refreshments". Those new arrivals aren't going anywhere.

    1. Jessica, I agree. Unlike Madewell's email they spell out what the promo is. This is get up early, come look at something..not sure what, and maybe there will be a promo...

  8. I was told that this event will include 30% off regular price, and 40% off sale, which is what their Black Friday deal will be. They will also honor the discount all day if you can't make it that early in the morning. Hope that helps!

  10. In Canada, Amex cardholders got invited to a Front of the Line preview sale tonight from 6-8 p.m., also with refreshments. I have another commitment so can't attend, but I would have liked to check it out.

Attendees will also receive 50% off select sale items on November 19, 2015 only. Cardmembers attending the event can also enjoy complimentary beverages and desserts.

  11. I am going to check out this event. It's on my way to work anyway so I will pop in first thing at 8:00 AM. The email I received says 30% off regular priced items (with the usual exclusions) and 50% off sale priced items.

  12. Any Chicago area JCAs receive an invite for tomorrow's breakfast event? I did not, and am curious as to what the promotion is. Saw a coat there yesterday in the markdown section & might make a trip if it is going to be an additional 50% off!

    1. Yes - got an invite for old orchard. 40% off sale. Otherwise 30% off. I honestly didn't realize this was for tomorrow...how dumb. I thought it was for Black Friday, lol.

    2. Thank you so much, rcb! I noticed there is a full size run online of the coat I tried on. Guess there is no hurry to purchase and I really do not need another coat.

  14. J.Crew will load the Great Gift List Style Guide on Pinterest soon! Keep checking.

    And it says new arrivals this Tuesday. So I'm guessing what we'll see tomorrow morning's in-store event is for next week's roll-out? It better be. That would be lame if its not.

  16. Maybe only select stores are participating.... the SF J.Crew store that is in a mall doesn't open till 10am. The event starts at 8am. That's probably why I didn't get an email.

  17. I couldn't get into the store this am but did a send sale over the phone. It was 50% off sale (canada). I hope the stores had good turnouts. :)
