Seek & Find: Will you visit J.Crew this 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 stopping by a J.Crew store this 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 is carrying an additional percent off sale. Thanks in advance!!! :)

P.S. I noticed that many of you have already been reporting sale items (and in which stores) in other posts which by the way "thank you!" :) I really appreciate how helpful we are for each other!

  1. Wow! Black Friday promo is 50% off full price. Darn, and I bought stuff @ 40% off. Might need to get my orders adjusted.

    1. Someone posted the 50% off TGIF promo here a few days ago, so I was ready. I ordered a perfect fit turtleneck, a couple more tissue turtlenecks, and both colors in the mockneck Fair Isle cashmere sweater. If the sweaters aren't amazing, though, they're going back.

    2. I decided to stop by the store with a return and to check a few things IRL. I picked up a couple more turtlenecks, some socks and 2 more of my favorite hair clips.

  2. Once again they raised prices in sale section right before the new promo. Everything is about the same price as previous promo with the pricing games. I picked up some basics I needed and multiple colors to try. I wanted to buy more but can’t get past the acrylic blends.

  3. Nothing for me, so few "talls" these days and with the prices raised on the "sale" selection for the "promotion", I'm out.

    1. me to. Canadian site alot of increases. I bet instore is better...but then again who knows. Its always such a mystery.

    2. They should add a “Recently Increased” section to Sale. With the prices up and no free shipping, this will be the first Black Friday that I don’t order from J.Crew in a decade.

      Delete
    3. @shopgrrrl too true! Nothing for me and I'm perfectly happy. It is good for people who eyeing full-price items though.

      Delete
  4. Surprised that the sales items in my cart did not increase in price. I ended up with 3 cashmere sweaters (featherweight oversized cardigan in black, pullover hoodie in bright harbor, ribbed neck sweater in navy) and the poppy ankle flats in navy liberty print. Why can you still add the cardperks code if it doesn’t take anything off? It has been this way for over a week.

  5. I bit on this sale. I ordered a tartan scarf, another sweater-blazer, the vintage fair isle sweater, a lace tank top, a v-neck cami, black jeans, and a striped tee.

    1. Ah the tartan scarf is gorgeous. Going to try to purchase it, if the JCrew website lets me! thanks for sharing :) I also have two sweater blazers (Sophia) ... you have good taste!

    2. Wow I guess I got lucky this morning since I got my order in before the website went down. Good luck!

  6. The website seems to be down... Is anyone else experiencing problems?

    1. Yes. I can't even sign into my account to see my wishlist. I shouldn't be surprised. They've had tech issues for years.

    2. I'm irritated more often than not lately with J.Crew. It's Black Friday and they can't handle it. What a fail.

    3. Lululemon web-site has been down for the last 2 days, Adidas was down yesterday. Seems to be very common issue this time of the year.

      Delete
    4. They just sent out a tweet saying there were problems

      Delete
    5. Yes, 500 and 504 errors. They seem to like to shoot tgemselthe in the foot.

      Delete
    6. Natalya, Lululemon must be having a good sale. There was a line outside the store when I was at the mall this morning. The Disney store had a line, too. I stopped at Starbucks, J.Crew and Sephora and was on my way in less than an hour.

      Delete
    7. Lululemon's sale is OK for people who know their product well since it's all final sale. I was more upset with not being to get through Adidas website. They had 50% off select products. I have 2 boys and in constant need of flashy looking, brand name athletic shoes.

      Delete
    8. Still down - still getting the “Hang on a sec” message.

      Delete
  7. JCrew website is crashing. Was going to order a bunch of things but "network errors' preventing purchase.

  8. Same.... can’t even add to cart. I did buy few things last night: cava cashmere sweater, cashmere cardigan in acorn, embellished shirt, Cameron pants and leather cosmetic care to match my new Tory Burch bag and 2 pairs of jeans for my daughter... Wanted to pick up pair of stripe gray pants, few T-shirt’s. Won’t let me add ... let’s see.

  9. I had two things saved to order today and they are both excluded from the promo. Less than impressed. Neither of the items are icon or cashmere.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love today's promo. I got collection marled sweater for myself, a new shirt for hubby and about 10 items for kids. I totally missed on black cashmere waffle knit sweater. Even if it pops back it won't be priced at 50%.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Website still down. I placed an order early this morning for my biggest girl in the next size up. 10 items for $67! What a great deal. Also scored her favorite jeans at the gap (I love their jeans for her because they have a slim size - something JC should take note of). Today I received the cashmere fair isle sweater and tipped wrap coat (Duchess Megan’s coat). Both are absolute loves! The coat is very slimming (tts for coats - I always size up for jcrew coats and my normal size up size fit perfectly). This will be a great topper for my go to winter outfit: midi, sweater, and booties. I also love the cashmere fair isle. Colors are bright and fun, cashmere is super soft and warm, and it’s an appropriate length even for my 5’10 self. I’m thinking of going back to order the tiered poplin skirt in lavender if only the site would work! Btw, the factory bow midi arrived and it’s too big. Could be my fault as I forget that im slowly slimming down post baby. I ordered the same size as the spring versions and it’s 2 sizes too big. I think that means you should size down one but don’t quote me. Makes me sad that my spring versions are probably now too big. Not sure if a tailor can take a skirt in 2 sizes. I love them so I may consult a tailor to see!

    1. @Liztriden, I have the tiered poplin maxi in lilac and love it! It’s a lot of skirt (ie when I climb into my car it feels like a lot of fabric) but the quality is good and I love cotton skirts.
      Re: the fair isle cashmere sweater, I ordered it too but it will take a while for Canada. Did you find it true to size? The one review says it runs large. Thx!

      Delete
    2. Thanks for sharing your review of the cashmere Fair Isle sweater. As I mentioned above, I ordered both colors, but I’ve never seen them IRL. I’m glad to hear that they’re nice.

      I was talking with an SA in my local store this morning about the lack of sweaters. Apparently this store receives very little winter merchandise because someone, somewhere is convinced we wear nothing but shorts all winter. The SA told me they just received a big shipment of shorts and they weren’t happy about it because customers are looking for sweaters.

    3. Hi Jan! Thanks for the info on the skirt. One of the big reasons I’ve had my eye on this skirt is that it is cotton and will be perfect for our big Europe trip next summer. I think it will look so chic with a crisp white tank and sandals. I have the pineapple skirt and it’s a lot of fabric too but it somehow works. If the site is working this morning I’m going to order it.

      The fair isle sweater runs a teensy bit large, though I wouldn’t size down. I think it’s just a nice casual, looser fitting sweater. Not the super right, cropped sweaters of late. I could see someone petite maybe sizing down, but I don’t think it’s totally necessary. I hope it works out for you! It is absolutely adorable!

      @Jeanne: I hope you like the fair isle sweaters too! Part of me wants the gray version too (I won’t as I already spent too much on myself this week/weekend)! I was just thinking the same about not enough cute sweaters. In fact, I went hunting on eBay for that very cute pink/burgundy and teal/blue fair isle turtlenecks from a few years ago. Would love one of those or a similar patterned sweater.

      Delete
    4. Thank you for your help @Liztriden! The skirt is a beautiful shade and i agree it looks great with a white tank. :) your trip sounds very exciting!

  12. Tried to place an order although several of my wishlisted items are marked sold out and i am on the fence about the embellished fair isle even at 50 off plus ten percent ebates. Wouldn’t log in and now of course the site is down, again. Oh well didn’t need it anyway

  13. Happy the exclusions were at a minimum this time. I’ve always sort of wanted the navy Liberty print perfect shirt and at 50% off plus my rewards, I got myself a little Black Friday gift!

  14. How is anyone shopping? Every time I've tried, the site is down.

    4. I shopped online in the extreme early morning, right after the promo went live, and I was at the mall before 7. I got coffee, then walked into J.Crew at 7:03 (opened at 7). My long nap on Thankgiving meant I barely slept last night, so getting my shopping done early was no problem.

    5. 11:37 EST and site is still down. Bummer.

    6. @Jeanne - that’s dedication! What did you pick up online and at the store?

    7. I was able to place an order at 10:50 pm. I wanted to take advantage of 10% Ebates and 15% off coupon that's in the new holiday catalog (I'll share pics tomorrow on my IG, peterst1). I was talking to an SA tonight, and it's difficult for the stores too because they can't make online orders for customers. Access appears to be very sporadic because now site is giving an error message. This is a nightmare scenario for J Crew. IG comments are kinda rough. In addition to extending the sale, I can see some sort of "make-up," similar to the extra 10% offered last year when site had similar issues on CyberMonday.

      Delete
    8. Any tips on getting the 15% off in new catalog to work. I have 2 catalogs, so 4 codes and not one worked. They state that they can be combined and are good through dec 25th, but no luck with any of them.

      Delete
    9. @bythelake I called CS after placing the order and they applied it.

      Delete
    10. Question for you all who have a catalog: Is this a generic code for all catalogs or a customer-specific one? I only sporadically get the catalogs and don't want to run to the mall this weekend. I would love to ask CS to apply the 15% if it's a generic code. Would someone be so kind as to post it, if it is a generic code? TIA!

      Delete
    11. @audball It's a specific code.

      Delete
    12. @audball I have an extra code if you want one. You can email mygoddy@gmail.com. Just let me know here that you've sent an email.

      Delete
    13. I would love a code if you have a extra. Thanks so much

  15. I don't know who hosts their site now but are they not paying their bills or what? I would be surprised if they have a full in-house IT infrastructure anymore since so many retailers contract out web services, but to go down again like they did last year on the biggest shopping weekend of the year is inexcusable.

    1. I agree. The website issues have been ongoing for years!

    2. which is probably why for so many years the default recommendation for the piece to complete an outfit has been a gray t-shirt, a jean jacket, or a chambray shirt...

  16. Does anybody have a $15 Boden discount that you are not planning to use? I think they expire tomorrow or Monday. My email is bankygirl at gmail dot com. Thank you in advance!
    I can't get through the crew website, it's always down when I've tried!

  17. No store visit for me thus far this holiday week. However, I did receive a few things and was able to place an order in the wee hours of the morning on Black Friday. It looks like the website is acting up again. I find it so strange how just the J. Crew website goes down, but neither sister brand does?

    Velvet leggings - got in black. I'm technically one size down from my other legging-like pants (ie. pixies, tight joggers). As mentioned previously, the fabric is not what I thought it'd be. It's thinner and less "Spanx" like if that makes sense, but I think these will be fun with longer sweaters and tunic tops throughout the winter.

    Boyfriend Utility Shirt - pale rose. Got this today in my normal size. The pockets are a little large, but the color is a great pale mauve pink color. I love how it's 100% cotton and the buttons match the shirt color so they don't stand out too much. It's a keep for me.

    Waiting on the button back sweater (Point Sur) in both camel and grey, fuzzy cardigan jacket (Point Sur) in camel. I have seen the jacket in person and it's a cute alternative to a true teddy coat. Hoping the sweaters are good tunic length options as I find myself gravitating towards leggings this winter for some reason.

  18. I went back to my local store this evening to return the 2 pairs of full length wide leg chinos (J7331) I ordered last week and to pick up the hair clip that was left out of my shopping bag when I checked out yesterday morning. I had high hopes for the chinos, but they were a disappointment. I really liked the fabric, a soft cotton with a little stretch. The fit from waist to crotch was comfortable and very flattering, but I hated the huge legs. I really like the wide legs on the 2011 foundry pants; however, these just looked weird and frumpy on me.

    I think I mentioned this before, but I've been shopping for some older J.Crew items on Poshmark and Ebay. It's sometimes frustrating, because these older items aren't always "in excellent like-new condition" like the sellers claim, but I've picked up a few gems. Today I wore a Robert Noble red wool herringbone blazer from 2006 that I absolutely love. It was filthy when I received it, but after a trip to the dry cleaners, it's gorgeous. And I only paid about $30 for it, including shipping. I'm also very happy with a beautiful yellow Maggie blazer from 2008, also about $30, and several Schoolboy blazers NWT or like new. I picked up a couple 100% wool fair isle sweaters from recent years, too. Sweaters are tricky because a lot of people don't care for them well and there's a good chance they'll have moth holes or shrinkage, but I managed to find a couple or nice ones at reasonable prices. I've sold some things, too, but not as many as I hope to eventually unload. The items I've listed have sold well, but I can't seem to motivate myself to photograph and list the things I want to sell. Maybe this week.

  19. I concur with Poshmark. I bought a $425 pair of Belgian Loafers last week for less than $100 - had never been worn. I have bought mostly new things there but for very good prices.

    1. Me too! I got a Juliet Blazer that needed a cleaning but for less than $25 was perfect.

    2. yes! I just bought an all wool pencil skirt from Poshmark, it's HO12, the bright blue and my favorite tall size so it hits just below the knee. $30. (I'm wearing today! on my IG navybluecardigan ). Also found a regent blazer on posh a few months ago for $50, just gave it a once over with my steamer and it was perfect.

  20. Anyone know the plans for Cyber Monday? Assuming the website works? I have been wanting to snag some Factory cashmere tees but they never go on promo so I'm hoping they might.

  21. “I can’t seem to motivate myself to photograph and list the things I want to sell”. This is my problem also.

  22. I'm debating buying another collection cashmere sweater, in navy, or the cashmere fair isle. I'm not sure if I just have the itch to buy, but I truly don't see the prices young this low again. What to do, what to do?

    Replies
    1. Hi Cheritheberry, isn’t the collection cashmere excluded from the promo?
      I did order the fair isle cashmere since it was included and I seem to have no willpower to this sale. I have bought quite a bit of gifts for hubby and kids and sadly a lot for me.

      Delete
    2. Perhaps you should buy now and return if you change your mind, so you don’t regret it. That would give you a chance to think it over.

      Delete
    3. Thank you for pointing that out! Looks like the decision was made for me :)
      I'm moving and buying a ton good my little one so I should pass.

      Delete
  23. Does anyone know if the sale section is final sale? I am looking at a pair of jeans and price is in red. I don’t want to risk it if it is.
