New Arrivals at J.Crew (plus 40% off & free shipping!!!)

"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know that J.Crew had an update to its website (click here to view online).

There are 157 new arrivals for men (click here) & women (click here). {wahoo!} It looks like Crewcuts (click here) has been updated too.

Promotion Time! J.Crew is offering customers to take an additional  40% off (you read that right!) with promo code HOLIDAY. This offer expires November 27, 2016. Plus they are offering free shipping on all orders placed today!

What items are you most excited about and why? Which items are you surprised (or not surprised) to see? Which items did you hope would be included? Were you expecting a bigger roll-out? Also, did you receive the latest catalog? :)

  1. Waking up to 40% off on the new arrivals felt a bit like Xmas morning. I tried many of the new arrivals yesterday and I am posting the reviews on my IG (crazyaboutjcrew). All in all I loved the new Collection and it is decently priced.

  2. Doesn't that image (above and in the email) look like the same blazer from last holiday?
    Anyway, I bit on this one. Mostly sale items. Not sure what I'll keep or return but a few things I've been eyeing/contemplating. Trying to balance practicality and the fact that I like pretty things. ;)

  3. Forgot to mention: Drake items are included. I bit on the Bengali tigers perfect shirt that was always excluded so far (also, Gucci has a very similar print in the Cruise collection).

    1. I really like that top! It's turned out to be very versatile. I ordered Drake too since I've wanted to try the green Bengal pajama top. Ebates is 10% @ J Crew (11% in the app). Speaking of Gucci, NM is having a private sale with 50% off select items (Saks too @ 40% off) & Nordstrom has it on sale in store. Some really good buys, so I decided to bite.

    3. Yay for Drakes! Undecided about the BOP pjs. Still need to buy the shirt.

  4. I ordered Christmas gifts and some sale items that I'll use for vacation and spr/sum. Ordered large leather plaid pouch since it was included in promo; that was my only new arrival. I like the Collection Ratti skirt in diamond print, so it's on my wishlist.

  5. wow, a gray boulevard trench popped back in my size - $89! Not FS! Hope it ships, have never tried that style on before and reviews were good... Also grabbed a Stewart plaid shirt since they seem to sell out every year, esp the tall sizes. I'd had my eye on the all day tote but it was $155 yesterday and back up to full price today, boo.

    1. It's a great coat! Fingers crossed it will ship!

      Delete
    2. Oo, glad to hear you like it! Looks like such a great classic coat (it's the wool one). It was one of those things where I knew I had to order right away, no contemplating for 5 mins or it'd be gone. :D

    3. Best part is it isn't final sale, so totally worth it to take a chance. You're right it wouldn't have stuck around long. That doesn't show up in sale ever any more.

      Delete
    4. Great snag-hope it ships! Two of my best JC deals ever were metro coats that popped back for around $80 a few years ago. Still love them!

  6. This is a fairly astonishing promo wrt regular priced items. Got a couple of 14K rings, which I'm super happy about. On sale, I got the Ratti flamingo peacock shift, the campbell blazer in pink houndstooth and am considering the matching mini, and the collection french tweed jacket in pink. Also got the bright pink faux fur stole -- not positive about this one, but it could be really cute...

  7. Love this 40%! Ordered the pompom cable sweater in ivory, velvet cami in amber, cluster drop earrings, tissue turtleneck in white, tweed lady jacket in sparkly trim. Trying the jacket, not sure if I'll like it because of the three pocket design--kinda weird, but I'd have to see. Also ordered the regent in navy P4, to replace an old one I have in P6.

    Speaking of Drake's, I'm holding off buying the BOP shirt, since there's still plenty of size 2, I was hoping for it to go on sale...unless, it sells out with this promo. 😬

    There's so many things I want especially with this rare promo. I'm like a kid in a candy store!

    1. I love those cluster drop earrings! I was eyeballing those in the holiday style guide just yesterday... I guess it's good for my wallet that I don't wear yellow gold?

      Delete
    2. Hi Taylor - I'm not much into wearing dangly earrings. I hope it doesn't look too fancy.

      Delete
    3. @JSR I guess depending on what you wear them with, it could go either way? I'm not one to be all fancy myself but sometimes you just have to own it. :)

  8. Aahh hard to resist this promo! And thanks everyone for the Ebates tip...I had surprisingly never heard of it and signed up before ordering to get the 10% cash back.
    I ordered the Sadie snakeskin flats from the sale section, ruffle silk button up, relaxed wool turtleneck in olive, festive plaid button up, and Marled Italian wool blend turtleneck sweater in oatmeal (this only had xxxs left in small sizes so idk if this one will fit). Kind of hoping something something doesn't work out since I don't really need to be spending more $$$ haha.

  9. Grabbed two sizes of wolfstooth pants and bow top in plaid. Might go take another look but hopefully that is all for me. Surprised to see this promo on line but happy as my store did not have wolfstooth pant in my size and too busy to stick around and order on Sunday.

    1. I have the wolfstooth pants and found the fit to be like the other PJ style pants/Drakes. I was surprised by how much I like the elastic waistband, very comfortable.

      Delete
    2. I got mine yesterday and they fit great in my usual size. Not too tight in the legs when I sit down. Nice to get them on such a good promo.

      Delete
    3. Thanks ladies! Excited for the pants. The elastic waistband is iffy sometimes so I ordered my regular size and one down just in case. Looking forward to wearing these to holiday parties to look dressed up but have the comfy waistband.

      Delete
    4. I tried on both my usual size and one size down for the wolfstooth pants and ended with the smaller size. The elastic waist is sometimes too forgiving and I need more of a control top.

      Delete
    5. The smaller of my two sizes fit best in the wolfstooth pants.

      Delete
    6. I ordered the bigger of my two sizes in that pant and though I could have gone smaller, I wanted extra comfy. The fit is loose enough that it doesn't much matter. As noted by PP, the elastic waist is very forgiving, but because the fabric is lightweight it doesn't bunch and bulge over the tummy. As the description explains, sometimes you just want to eat that extra Christmas cookie. Thumbs up on this pant.

  10. I tend to get veryexcited when new roll outs are online. THis promo is fantastic.. As J Crew posted...Its the first time ever 40% off (some)of the new stuff. I only purchased from sale page (mod update)
    of past likes that are still not final sale...I tend to over order and just return everything...so I am waiting on new stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Some cute new tops and sweaters...but be sure to read the measurements/descriptions. Seems many are rather short.

    ReplyDelete
  12. there's a few things i like, but i'm trying to be practical... i bit and bought new hat and gloves, a pair of the NB pants and a shirt (which, granted, i didn't NEED but...)

  13. I ordered two shirts this morning that I have been watching for a few weeks. One is the pajama shirt with tipping. I needed to go up two sizes in this shirt and also the Liberty Sarah print tie neck tuxedo front shirt. It runs super small as well. The liberty shirt has been excluded from every promo until today. Both shirts were included in the promo and they also let me use a $20.00 bounce back card. So both shirts together were less than $100.00. I also had a $50.00 AMEX gift card so it was a good morning. I am trying to stay away from some of the more strictly holiday offerings as I have tons from last year that I hardly wore. I have the red tartan d'orsay shoes that I never even got to wear. Can't wait.

  14. Well, I re-ordered a bunch of stuff that I previously *just* purchased with the 30% off promo. Some of them were high priced items, so the extra 10% off makes a noticable difference. Sigh.

    1. I used my Discover price protection and will file four claims to get back $70 for four items I recently bought. I always use my Disciver card for J Crew. Great sale though

  15. I bit on black and leopard gemmas, oversize stripe turtleneck, french blue margot top, and a tissue turtle neck. i'm contemplating a second order for some jewelry and bathing suits, and maybe a regent blazer! -lep33shops

    1. I placed 2 orders already, and contemplating a 3rd :P
      I still haven't been able to snag a green margot top in my size!

      Delete
    2. and there goes my second order :) lucite necklace, some bracelets, a deck stripe tee, and a bathing suit (and a few kid items). The green margot is the only silk one I'm interested in (aside from the foulard which I already have, and it's not in my size either!)

      Delete
  16. Got the star embroidered tippi, the tie-neck tuxedo ruffle shirt and the navy gingham club collar shirt. Best price I've seen so far for the tie-neck and the club collar shirt. Now I'm contemplating another order with the tie-neck Liberty print shirt.. because free shipping.. so why not? Auughhh I just paid off my cc to prep for Black Friday/Cyber Monday though!

  17. I ordered the tall plaid Marties as well as the wolfstooth pants. I am planning to check out my store tomorrow - I want to try out the ivory clip dot Edit top as well. When I talked to an SA at my store this morning they didn't have everything out yet so I'm waiting until tomorrow.

    I also emailed for a price adjustment on my Gayle sweater :)

    Agreed that it was like Christmas morning with the great sale this morning! Not as much in the sale section caught my eye. I guess there will be another (maybe small?) rollout in a few weeks as well.

    1. I ordered the plaid Marties too, Anne! In my regular Martie size... we'll see how they work out. I can't wait to wear them all throughout December.

      Delete
    2. Oof, just saw Ema's review - I emailed CS to see if I could go up a size as I don't think my regular (cotton) Martie size will work. I hope they can make the switch!

      Delete
    3. Taylor, I took my chances with the tall version, hoping for a little extra room in them. If I have to size up I'm worried they'll be all wrong. I hope they work out for you!

      Delete
    4. @taylor i took my regular size in the steward plaid marties

      Delete
    5. Thanks, @Ina! I haven't heard back from CS so my guess it's too late to change the order. We shall see...

  18. Hi ladies! Any thoughts on the Ruffle-trim shift dress? Hard to tell with the picture online, it might look tentish?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Agree this promo is great! I saw it after midnight then couldn't sleep well thinking about it lol. I was out of town so got to a store and bought the green lace pencil skirt. I kept telling myself to get the black but I couldn't resist the green. Hoping I can find enough to match it.
    Also picked up some socks as gifts for hubby and kids. I bought a lot of gifts a few weeks ago but wish I would've waited for this promo.
    Can anyone comment on the fit of the black watch plaid shirt? Thx!

    1. I found the black watch plaid shirt TTS. The material is thinnish but I think on sale it's a good buy.

    2. @elizabeth, thank you! I'm thinking of trying it with the green lace pencil skirt.

    3. @Ina, thank you - how long ago was it as I can't see it on your IG? I really appreciate your reviews! Just ordered the Friday tee earlier today based on your review. :)

    4. I reviewed the plaid shirt yesterday night and the green lace skirt a couple weeks ago.
      Our store is wearing the Friday tee for work on Black Friday:). Hope you like it!!!!

    5. Thank you, Ina! That's a great idea for Friday!

  20. Caught a few lovely things right after midnight, and then there appeared a mysterious and beautiful striped silk shirt (black & white or perhaps navy & white, couldn't tell). The text said the shirt was from the NàP collection. No price, no style number, no sizes, no detailed description, just one picture and a title. It didn't appear on the NàP site at all, and as the evening wore on, it vanished from the JC site as well. Was I hallucinating? Has anyone else seen it?

    1. Yes, I've seen the shirt. It's beautiful and noticed the same thing last night. It's been sold out. I've only seen a size 12 which wouldn't work. Just add this to your "stalking wish list."

      Delete
    2. I tried the shirt, 5th Avenue had the nap Collection. Might be still thete. It's beautiful, fits really well. If you can scroll way down on my IG I should have a pic/review.

  21. I finally ordered the holly sweater in aqua mist. Thanks to all who offered helpful feedback earlier!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Has anyone seen the men's Oxford Cocktail shirt from the cover? How does it look in real life? I'm thinking of ordering it for myself. It would be oversized but I could wear it with a cardigan and roll the sleeves maybe? My husband wouldn't wear it but I totally would.

  23. For JACs who are eyeing the Signet bag which is excluded from the current promo: Nordstrom has 40% off on four colors (mostly classic colors). I ordered the black this morning and it is still 40% right now...

    1. Thanks for the tip! Only green and soft blossom left when I checked earlier. I couldn't resist and bought the bag in soft blossom.

    2. Hi Amy, soft blossom is nice color. I have seen it in the store and the leather is very soft.

  24. I'm very excited about this promo, but stuff keeps selling out from right under me!

  25. Wonderful promo! Free shipping and minimal exclusions are amazing rare perks. Blew my Black Friday budget but happy - giving thanks for JCAs and J Crew.

  27. Before having my morning coffee I bit; damn free shipping gets me every time.

    But hello new plaid shirt; see ya soon.

    ReplyDelete
  28. They were definitely moving things and pulling things throughout the day. When I first got up the kids Star Wars shirts were included when I checked later in the day they were excluded. I also noticed a few other things "sold out" that were brand new like the large plaid pouch. I believe the plaid ric rac shoes were pulled overnight as they were no where to be found early this morning. I'm hoping they will replenish things as the week progresses but I have a feeling they are playing inventory games and things that sell well will "sell out" only to be stock again next week when the promo is over. While I did place an order this morning, I'm already regretting not grabbing a couple more things.

  29. Hey all! Should anyone be browsing J Crew in store and see a cocoon coat in the light grey in size 2 or 0, could you please please message me? Literally missed out on this by a few hours :-(

  30. I placed 4 orders yesterday. I need to be stopped.

  31. I thought I could combine my b'day reward with this promo ... but No! Oh well, to make the best of the situation, I used the b'day reward on a Troi Ollivierre Parker lipstick, and the 40% off promo on the Club Collar Black Watch Perfect Shirt & the Regent Topcoat. Can't wait to try the coat and hoping it works out. Trying to be a minimalist shopper (both style & quantity), but we'll see.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Excited that the green velvet blazer I ordered for my husband with this promo shipped. It kept jumping out of my cart! Had to anchor it down with a nice cashmere sweater for myself...
