There are some new arrivals for men (click here) & women (click here). {wahoo!} It looks like Crewcuts (click here) has been updated, but not the J.Crew Collection (click here).

Not going to lie, I did make a few purchases this morning without realizing new arrivals were here. ;)

Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? What item are you hoping to pick up? Please share!

  1. I never take the time to comment before work, but I am a little disappointed. I have been waiting for a nice array of merino cardigans. Not one in the new arrivals, and the only wool cardigan- the long cable cardigan is already sold out. Why even put it in the ad?

  2. It's a good new arrivals day if you're in the market for a cable sweater dress, wedge sandals or informal bridal. This may be the smallest rollout I've ever seen. Nothing wrong with the new items, but they are far and few between. Seems like a more robust rollout might have spurred on some purchases, either for gifts or holiday parties. Strange.

  3. Some (but not all) Collection pieces that haven't been included in previous promos are included today -- just an FYI.

    1. Like the cashmere chunky turtleneck! Too bad the color I wanted is completely sold out now but its a great piece worth stocking up on

    2. I grabbed that this morning in black, plus the Stewart plaid shirt that popped back in my size. Got a sweater for my husband and a couple of other things I think but can't remember.

    3. Yes, Dmitri, the cashmere chunky turtleneck!! I was going to mention that in my original post! Are you referring to the heather flax color? I actually ordered that a few weeks ago in an XS, but it was way too big. Completely strange, since the reviews indicate it runs small. I then ordered the XXS, as that size popped back, but that size seems to fit a little too snuggly for my taste. I reordered the XS size yesterday, hoping maybe THAT will fit just right. Lord help me. Can you comment on the quality, if you already own one? I'm afraid it's going to pill immediately, and for it's current retail price it would break my heart.

  4. I would love to see a smackdown between the cable sweater dress and the one from Old Navy, the materials basically seem the same...

  5. Madewell got my money this week. They have some great things but check with a store before ordering,the prices are much better in store. I ordered a pair of the skinny overalls and they were $139.50 online less discount versus $109.99 less discount in store. They also have some really cute socks and scarves. Some of my stuff will actually be here today and I just ordered yesterday and Madewell always has free shipping. I didn't see anything on the J.Crew website in new arrivals this morning. I don't like the new wedge sandal on first look but they might grow on me.

  7. Received a factory order today with a universal coupon code-enjoy! HOWNICE takes 20% off orders of $100 or more (some exclusions apply, i.e. it doesn't work on vests).

  8. I was able to check out some of the new arrivals earlier this morning, and managed to catch the Campbell blazer in velvet with peak lapel on popback. I'd like to take a look at the rest of the new rollout, but cannot get back on the website. Is anyone else having trouble?

  9. The Excursion Vest in Gingham (E7494) is adorbs! Someone better be getting that under their tree!

    1. I ordered this and it came in the mail today. It's adorable! I'm going to style it soon. Fit is TTS with other excursion vests. It's nicely trimmed.

  10. That's a cute scarf - anybody seen it IRL? The color is "soft terracotta", which makes me think it would be more orange or brown.

    1. I saw it in store next to the red chateau parka. It looks to be a true red.

    2. Thanks, Suz! It was reading as a true red on my monitor but the color name was throwing me off. : )

  11. Placed an order, but nothing from new arrivals. Ordered bi-stretch wool in heather aubergine; my size popped back & based upon JCA reviews, including @ Anne-The Fab Life, I ordered them. Also, picked up sloan mermaid glitter d'orsay flats. I saw these on an SA in store this weekend & they were so cute. So, when I saw my size popback this morning I decided to order. Hoping these fit; I don't have many JC shoes other than sandals. Received my 2nd waffle tee today in the mail in ivory & black & love this one too.

    1. Have that dress in the "Auvergne" and love it, grabbed a popback in black this morning as well!

    2. Clearly autocorrect doesn't know from aubergine...

    3. I also ordered those shoes on a pop back (size 5!) on the 11th, and they still haven't shipped. Meanwhile, two days later, 5 1/2 popped back -- and they have shipped. To make things more confusing, size 5 popped back again, and I order them again. Still not shipped. So I might end up with three pairs (my daughter can wear one), but I'm doubtful the 5's are going to ship. I have these in the red tartan, and they run at least 1 size small.

    4. Third order has shipped -- and I just ordered it yesterday. Still nothing on the first pair I ordered. Those had free shipping.

  12. All popback stalking for me today. I was a bit surprised at how sparse the 'new arrivals' were too. Got the lace inset blouse (collection).

  13. Speaking of popbacks, I've been stalking religiously for weeks (because I have nothing better to do-ha!) the Collection Faux Fur jacket, in size XXS. I want to try this so i ordered an XS. I know its not going to fit because reviews say it runs one size large and I'm a shorty. :) I even set my alarm early in the AM to check. Ugh.

    1. Did you try on the other faux fur jacket? It looks like the fit is the exact same. I love mine, but I think I'm the only one.

      Delete
    2. Hi Blake! I did. I was able to get an XXS, and it fit perfectly! I returned it though...I wasn't into it after all.

      Yeah I'm guessing the faux fur jacket is the same size as the Teddy jacket.

  14. if anyone has been stalking the website for the campbell blazer in blue herringbone in sz 0, do let me know before I return it on friday. I got it today, and the fit sadly just doesn't work on me. It's a gorgeous jacket in the most wonderful fabric!

  15. I told myself no more jcrew--got to save up for a down payment on a new place---but today I broke-- collection snake skin oxfords, gold oxfords, tortoiseshell oxfords, trench, cutout top (inspired by someone who layered a shirt under it and I loved it) and the cashmere pom pom sweater.....oh and elsie pumps in black as my old ones are starting to show (the ones with the gold heel and between the sole---the insole is no longer sticking and after several attempts of using superglue no luck it keeps slipping down as I walk...not comfy...)

  16. Funny but seeing the promo and wanting a fix from my usual poison I sifted through the whole sale section and new arrival only to end up dry.

    Over I went to Club Monaco and bam! Wool crewneck in oatmeal, slim plaid flannel shirt and cotton pants. Looks like we know who's scratching my retail itch lately.

    1. *lol* JC guy in Canada, your comments always makes me laugh! Well said "fix from my usual poison!"

  17. Does anyone know if the $20 off $100 coupon that was handed out over Thanksgiving can be used on red phone purchases? It says retail only but not sure if in store phone orders apply. Thanks!

    1. Hi Lauren. I tried once or twice to get the coupon applied while in store, for a red phone order. I don't recall it being approved. It's a bounce back card, given out with a purchase to get you to return to the store. Which is why they will likely restrict it to in-store use only. Also the card says no phone orders. Of course the card doesn't say you can't ask. ;)

    2. Thanks, Gigi! I'd really like a monogrammed pair of the vintage pajamas so I might make a trip to the store and ask. Worst they can do is say no :)

  18. I was more excited for the return of the free shipping than for the (4?) new arrivals to be honest. I got the star tee this morning after missing on it last week. I had to order one size down so hopefully the "slightly loose fit" description is correct. I am against short sleeve tees at this time of the year but it is going to be 66-60 all next week, including Xmas day, so it seems more weather appropriate than a cashmere sweater, especially for $12.49. I am curious as it is a bit different but festive enough and I hope it is really slightly cropped as the review says.
