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 didn't.

    The dress I bought 62 days ago is now on super-duper sale. And it's been so since last Thursday. Ugh. I can't return the other one now for a refund but could I return it for credit?

    2. I have called CS and asked them to extend the return deadline two times. Both times they did - one with no problem, although the other representative gave me a bit of a hassle. Ask them to put a note in the online order screen, and get their name in case the SA can't see the note and needs to verify. At the very least, you should be able to get store credit.

    3. Flower power, if you're only 2 days over the return period I think you will have success with a refund. If not, I think they will at least give you store credit. Like unknown said, it can't hurt to ask.

  3. Orders really seem to be taking awhile. :( I like to return things I don't like ASAP but hard when it takes a week and a half for an order to ship.
    I might stop in a store today to return one thing

  4. I don't see anything really fabulous in the new roll out. I am sure I will change my mind though as I see things in person. I still have my Christmas gift card that is burning a hole in my pocket. I know something will come along. I really feel like a lot of older styles are going to come back around. I still have my collection snakeskin ballet flats that are very similar to the ones in the new style guide. I think they were ceces.

  6. It seems they haven't updated the online sale section at all in like 5 days...even leaving up the sold out listings.

    1. Same for Factory's clearance section which has been at 50% off. It's shown literally the exact same number of items for the past four or so days.

    2. Yeah when I see that I don't even bother looking.

    3. Yes, the website is really messed up. I thought it was just me but it sounds like I'm not crazy. I posted here late In the wee hours on Thursday morning that the website was down. It was only down for a few minutes but it has shown 1152 items in the women's sale section since then. Is that what you all are seeing? Anyway, I was googling an item for some reason and I clicked on the link and the item was available! But, it didn't come up when I searched it on the website, and the price was showing full price but when I put it my cart it was marked down. And their are lots of items like this! So weird! So, if you are looking for something maybe try that method to see if you can find what you are looking for.

      Yep, 1152 items.... They do update the website though, bc items in my wishlist that show sold out are available again next day.
      I'm getting a bit fed up with them, why does it take so long to solve their website problems? #notrocketscience

    5. Wow, Lauren, fabulous tip--totally worked for some hidden items.

    6. Fleur de lys, I do think they have been updating the website but only those 1152 items. Like they've been disappearing and popping back.

  7. Recently ordered the COLLECTION DRAKE'S® FOR J.CREW PANT IN BIRD OF PARADISE and WOMEN'S SPERRY® FOR J.CREW SHEARWATER SHORT PULL-ON BOOTS. Both should arrive on Wednesday. I have the DRAKE'S® MIDNIGHT UNICORN pants and love them so couldn't resist the BIRD of PARADISE with the discount + an extra 50% off. SPERRY® boots were marked down just a few dollars but that makes them qualify for the extra 50% off. I can always justify another pair of boots in my climate.

  8. I was hoping for a free ship day so I can grab a single item! Oh well.

    1. I was also hoping for an update to sale...we gat neither.

  9. Free ship + 50% off clearance at Factory today. I'm tempted by the donegal wool turtleneck, which nets $20 -- but I don't *need* it so I'm trying to stay strong and stick to my shopping break for a bit longer.

    Now, I do need a vacuum cleaner, but I'm not tempted to shop for that at all . . . .

  10. Looks like they FINALLY updated the sale section. Over 1800 items!

  11. Stopped by my store to return the pajama top in tipping (I ordered the next size and waited for it to ship!) and the Regent blazer in blackwatch with satin lapel...loved it but felt I needed a tall size, it was just boxy on me.

    Tried on the snap front pixie jodhpurs and the ones with the faux leather. I ordered them in a OO and think they might end up going back. The length is actually a bit long and they bunch up. The length of the ones with the faux leather was better but they didn't have a 00 in store and the 0 was definitely loose in areas. These felt a bit thinner/stretchier than the other ones. I'll try the other ones at home and see. Maybe the regular ones without the snap would work better, but then I feel like I'd just be in leggings.

    I also tried the field mechanic jacket which is on sale online but not in store. I ordered an XS but prefer the slightly roomier feel of the S So I might exchange it in store and they said I could pay the same price I paid online. I think if you're taller than 5'4" or so sizing up might be the right move. My regular size fit but just felt a bit skimpy, especially because I like the waist gathered pretty tight.

    I left with two clearance items.
    Satin ribbon belt item G0459 in the golden chartreuse color. This is much prettier in person. It reminds me of the Campbell daisy blazer color from last spring. I haven't held them up together, but it's not chartreuse as you'd imagine, and not as lemony as it looks online. The reverse is almost a Kraft brown color and there is a fine edge in a deep garnet red. I like this under a blazer as it was shown with the blackwatch plaid blazer and jeans, in the navy color, but also to break up an all black outfit. I'm practicing my single loop bow. ;)

    I also got the Sadie "loafer flats" in the cherry print. This runs about a size bigger than the Gemma size, so I sized down to an 8. I wasn't the hugest fan of the cherry print but I'm always in red and black and the cut of the shoe is very flattering. If you can snag these at the sale price I recommend. They're fun. Very retro style.

  13. Ebates is 10% for J Crew. Ordered a couple of oldies that popped back, garland crystal necklace and knotted sandals with ankle ribbon tie. Both will work well for spr/sum.

    1. This made me reorder the field mechanic jacket in two sizes and two. Other final sale tee shirts. That extra ten percent is nice.
