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 take advantage of what's left (if anything) in the winter sale or to see some new Spring/ Resort arrivals 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!
I am trying to find the rolling ruffles tank xs in the dark charcoal.ReplyDelete
I went to the new Emeryville store tonight, its really nice! Good experience, clean and bright store, helpful SAs.ReplyDelete
They had a few new things that I am posting on my blog soon.
Have a great weekend everyone!!
I'm searching for the Nicky skirt in Navy, size 0. Please let me know if you see one.ReplyDelete
I really wish they would put the grey bubble necklace on sale. What do you think are the chances?ReplyDelete
(In other words, should I wait on this one)?
Anon 1:03am I want that same skirt in Navy and Beige.ReplyDelete

Good morning! I'm looking for the bright fuschia Victoria blouse in size 12 or 10. Thanks!ReplyDelete
i'm going to go and exchange the tea rose for the lavender in the slub cotton ripple-ruffle tee (i got it home and realized i already have a shirt in tea rose). i may even go down to a medium in it (i am not a medium... the shirt is cut VERY generously).ReplyDelete
Honestly, I cannot go to my J.Crew this weekend! I've gone a little crazy over the past couple of weeks online ... I've gotta stop!! At least for a couple of weeks!ReplyDelete
I am going to my B&M today during lunch to check out the new spring items. Will also be returning some tees.ReplyDelete
Can anybody comment on the fit of Silk Fresco Dress #12103? Much appreciated.ReplyDelete
They had roll-out (for those of us who used to work for the company) yesterday, so all new items are in the stores now! Everything looks great, I love the new skirts, shorts, and dresses.ReplyDelete
twosome1: Are there any new jersey knit dresses or skirts? I haven't fallen in love with any of the current knit dress offerings yet, so I was hoping there'd be something new coming out! TIA!ReplyDelete
My order from the 20% off, was Cancelled. BOO. I ordered shoes and my B&M does not carry shoes....so not sure if I'll go, I might, but I am grumpy with JC right now.ReplyDelete
OT, but some of you may find this Crewcuts article interesting:ReplyDelete
Have a great day!
I'll probably do a quick tour of the new arrivals when I head out to the mall tomorrow to look for my MIL's birthday gift. Nothing I've seen on the website I have to have, and I'm still waiting for my spectator peep toes that were supposed to arrive yesterday. I wish they'd been the pink but the pic of the red was cute too. I can't wait to get them on my tootsies! I keep reminding myself that patience is a virtue, and I thought for months I'd missed my chance with them anyway, so an extra day shouldn't seem that long...ReplyDelete
So no updates to the sale section again today?
Can someone post if their store has Joley flats or heels? sizes? colors?price? (my store doesn't have shoes) tx!ReplyDelete
No, not going to go and look at the new stuff. Am waiting for a sale. I don't buy anything at full price so why be tempted plus the offerings have been less than exciting lately. Will wait for a bigger roll out and hopefully some big markdowns. Otherwise, I don't NEED anything. Planning a trip to Europe this summer so will save my money for shopping over there. Second time I have been and am getting excited for June 25th!ReplyDelete
OT, but someone mentioned on a post a while back about "hidden" items on JC website. How do you find or search for the hidden items?ReplyDelete
OT: A JCA posted on the Looking to Sell list that she had jewel palm leaf necklace and now I can't find the post! Perhaps it was sold and she removed post! I would love to know so if that JCA is you, please let me know!ReplyDelete
crowrose at aol dot com.
no jcrew this weekend, will be out of town :)ReplyDelete
OT, but can anyone comment on the fit of the high heel flare jeans (clean indigo) in comparison to martin+osa jeans? i'm so confused about my jcrew sizing now, and the final sale has me being more cautious. i used to be an 8T in jcrew, but i tried on a pair of 30s in the store and it was huge. i'm a 28 in m+o, so just wondering if i should jump down to a 28...
I have the Nicky spring dots skirt in beige, size 6 (10583). A little small on me. Asking $25 shipping included.ReplyDelete
Also have the navy eyelet ballet flats (88508) size 9 that I ordered online last week, so in the box and everything, but they are a little too big on me. $45 shipped.
e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
There were lots of size 0 Nicky skirts in Navy at both the Asheville store and the Southpark store in Charlotte. Soo may want to call them if you're looking for 0s as that's pretty much all they had in anything. 0 or 14.ReplyDelete
The studio ball skirt is online in a 6... I recall someone wanted it in a 6, 8, or 10. It's $199.99...ReplyDelete
i have to go back to return the cotton bow dress. it runs HUGE.ReplyDelete
...i wish they carried it in stores.
The sale section on the website was updated this a.m. with lots of stuff I wanted, but alas my fingers and brain were not fast enough (again) and I didn't get anything...:(ReplyDelete
I am seriously wanting the floral pencil skirt featured in the recent Marie Claire and also seen on The Wardrobe Review blog. Wondering when it is going to be released.ReplyDelete
which floral pencil skirt? Is there a pic on this blog? sorry if I missed it.ReplyDelete
Just an FYI - the B&M stores have the Saturday pants in all colors on sale for $49.99.ReplyDelete
OT and I haven't read all of the comments, so forgive me if someone has already posted this:ReplyDelete
The 20% doesn't only apply to final sale, but also the promo merchandise that does not end in.99such as the editor satchel and many other things.
lcsmom: I saw a dk charcoal rolling ruffles xs tank at the Paramus Garden State Plaza store in NJ. That was about a week ago though so who knows if they still have it. I am going there this evening and was going to see if they still had a small in dk charcoal. I love that store because they have alot of selection but hate it because customer service really stinks there!! Most of the associates there are crabby.ReplyDelete
Cynthia I sent you an email regarding the applique tee. Today was the first time I've used my goldcoastgal at gmail dot comReplyDelete
anyone go to the NYC sample sale? how was it? details please!ReplyDelete
I went to Easton Town Center today to check out the new arrivals.ReplyDelete
The good news is, there are a few brighter colors. Like a short-sleeved printed top with the lattice detail at the neckline which was quite pretty and bright. Prints just don't tend to look good on me, and this had a boxy shape which doesn't flatter my curves. Yes, it was VERY sheer. They also had the matching print in a 3" short.
For those of you who LOVE the zebra tee, they had a 3" lavender critter shorts with small grey zebras on them.
I bought one new thing at full-price (minus my teachers discount). It was a new top. The label reads J. Crew Vintage Closet (or something to that effect). They had the top in grey with white trim and in white. It is short-sleeved, button down and pleated in the front with vintage looking rick rack running down the pleats, around the sleeves and the collar. It is fitted with a lovely shape. It is sheer, but you couldn't see my nude bra through it. The regular price on it is $68 ($57.80 with discount). I have a feeling it will go fast because it is a universally flattering shape.
On a different subject, I stopped at Old Navy to get my son a Spiderman Tee that was sold out during the friends and family event. I have used Gap gift cards in the past online to pay for Old Navy purchases, so I inquired if it could be done in store. She tried my gift card and it worked. I thought you all might like to know.
Easton Town Center didn't have the scarf-print cami referenced in another post or the new floral pencil skirt seen.
They also didn't have the new catalog yet. They said it would be available next week about the same time as the online postings.
Nichi, thank you for the info. on some of the new arrivals! I can't wait to hear more reviews as I live in Canada and can't get to a store. :-)ReplyDelete
Are there any in store specials? I am waiting for the perfect fit strappy tanks to go on special.ReplyDelete
OT - I'm thinking of buying the Duchamp print Astor jacket off ebay. I really like the pattern, but it's gonna be too warm where I live (FL) to wear it really until next season. Do you think it'll still be stylish in the Fall? Does anyone who has it like it? Love it?ReplyDelete
is this the one you're referring to?
JEWELED PALM LEAF NECKLACE - METALLIC ROSE - $120 shipped.
Nichi: thanks for the report! The top you bought sounds lovely. Did you notice if there were any new dresses there, particularly any jersey knit dresses?ReplyDelete
This comment has been removed by the author.ReplyDelete
I found the Pink Stone-bead Ribbon Necklace thanks to silver_lining.ReplyDelete
Thanks for looking out for me.
I didn't look at the dresses as I was trying to limit my purchases.
If there were new dresses, they didn't catch my eye, so I didn't look. Sorry.
Oh, and I also saw the aqua ruffled henley for the first time in person. It truly looks so frayed that it would fall apart very easily upon first wearing/washing.ReplyDelete
It's so sad that J. Crew seems to be distressing everything. I like my clothes to look well-made and put-together. I don't think that J. Crew has realized that vintage doesn't mean frayed.
Hopefully summer will be better.
I stopped by my B&M to see the new stuff and I was not impressed.ReplyDelete
I posted a couple pictures on my blog for anyone who wants to see pictures. My B&M didn't have all the new items out yet so the pictures are a small selection of the new stuff.
I did not see the floral skirt from Shannon's blog, Wardrobe Reviews.
I received an email yesterday for a built by wendy sample sale, fri-sat-sun in both the nyc and brooklyn locations. 10% off spring 09 items with sample sale receipt.
Didn't think to mention it before, but maybe some JCAs would be interested! :)
Anon @ 2:05 pmReplyDelete
I have the Duchamp Astor and I love it. I stalked the website for over 2 months to get it at $149 less 20% off. The fabric is fairly heavy wool, like the double-serge but not quite as soft. The white is actually more of a very pale ivory, not a true bright white. Other colors in the print are chocolate and black.
The print is from a vintage scarf and looks classic and not trendy, especially with the classic colors. I plan to wear it in spring with an ivory or navy skirt or white/faded jeans and then again in fall with darker colors. It is not overly warm, but too hot for florida at this time of year.
The jacket has a very slight a-line shape, which gives sit a bit of swing and I feel, contributes to the chic appeal. There is no inverted pleat so it is not boxy. The sleeves are not overly long, but I do have long arms so if you do as well, that may be a factor. It definitely has a Parisian look to it and looks great with skirts, pants and even jeans. I don't buy many printed jackets but had to have this one, it is gorgeous.
If you have other specific questions I would be happy to answer them.
I love the floral skirt from the magazine in Shannon's blog! I'd even buy it full price! Has anyone seen in IRL?ReplyDelete
OT- I have a gray beaded zebra t in Medium that I bought spontaneously when I actually saw one in-store. I'm not sure it's me exactly, so if anyone is interested in buying it off of me or having me tell JC to hold it when I return it later today, please email me email@example.com.
Anon at 9:50....ReplyDelete
I received the Silk Fresco Dress in the mail this week and promptly returned it. While the print is lovely and I typically find that JC shift dresses flatter my figure (5'9", size 10, hourglass), the design of this dress was all wrong for me. To name a few things...
1) Shoulder straps set very wide (made my narrow shoulders look manly)
2) No shaping whatsoever through the waist. There is no waist definition and it is baggy through the waist (it's even baggy at the waist on the model in the photo online).
3) Tight at bust and hips :(
I soooo wanted to love this dress, but the fit was hideous on me. However, the fabric was a very nice summer-weight, lined silk and the pattern was actually slimming. Perhaps if u have a straighter figure, it will look better on you. Let me know if you have more questions!
xoxo - Thanks so much for the great information on the Duchamp jacket! I think it is a classic pattern (moreso than the snow leopard jacket that I also love) and I think I will buy it! Does it run true to size?ReplyDelete
Thanks Nichi, for reporting on the ruffle henley. I've been so curious about this one and have gone to check it out several times, but my store doesn't carry it. Thanks for saving me another trip (and money)!ReplyDelete
Em-Thanks so much for the tip on the Nicky Skirt. I was able to snag one from the Asheville store. :) -Anon 1:03 AM.ReplyDelete
Yay! You're welcome. I am glad you found one. I have it in navy and pink... cute skirt!!! :)ReplyDelete
SC Crew - I think what you're talking about is that the search function on the J. Crew website sometimes, not always, brings up items that are not listed if you just clicked in a catagory. For example, I did a search once using the term "bracelet," and the results included a bracelet not included in the full-price jewelry section or the sale section.ReplyDelete
Here's the link to the April J.Crew catalog ... http://www.fashionweekdaily.com/news/fullstory.sps?inewsid=6629253 ... enjoyReplyDelete
I stopped in my B&M store today, and overheard a sales associate tell another shopper that the new items will be up on the website on Thursday. So, something to look forward to next week.ReplyDelete
LOVE the dress. I couldn't pull it off though.
Hopefully the shirt in thart print is more flattering than the recent J. Crew camis. I would love to try that one.
Hi did you see this?ReplyDelete
My order for the yellow glass bead ladybug necklace was canceled :(ReplyDelete
Does anyone have one to sell?
Please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
This comment has been removed by the author.ReplyDelete
The link I posted only shows the cover and one other page of the catalog ... =-(ReplyDelete
I tried the ringspun ruffle henley, and it was a definite no for me. The way the buttons are secured by "tabs," it made the shirt gape from my chest to my stomach. And I'm small-chested!ReplyDelete
Re-Searching on the jcrew site. I am not sure how others do it, but I search for colors I like- such as 'plum' or I search for 'jackets' etc... it is amazing how you end up with very different stuff.ReplyDelete
Anon @ 4:19: I am between a regular 6 and 8 in JC jackets (8P is my best fit) and sizing down in the Duchamps gave me the better fit. The jacket is more outerwear than blazer (though I've pulled it off as a blazer because I live in the snowy, cold midwest) so there is ample room in the shoulders.ReplyDelete
I've fallen in love! The dress that Liya is wearing on the second page of the catalogue in birdie butter's post. Too many things to cherish/desire....ReplyDelete
Emily - thanks for pics of the gold linen jacket on your blog! I am a little late to the jacket scene so apparently not sick of the boxy ones jcrew has (that apparently everyone else is over). a definite buy for me, even at full price!ReplyDelete
I went to the new Emeryville store yesterday; it was FAB. The SAs were all really nice and friendly/helpful (most were from the Walnut Creek store just there for a day or so). They had some sold out stuff, like the dainty bead necklace (I got the aqua). OT, my WC personal shopper told me that starting today, if you make an appt w/ personal shopper, you will get 20% off. I may go tomorrow to return online stuff.ReplyDelete
Nothing on Fashion Valley that caught my eye...ReplyDelete
I also need the rolling ruffles in black.. thanks!ReplyDelete
Yay! My super discounted linen aubrey jacket in natural shipped-- ONE DAY AFTER I placed my order! It's a J.Crew miracle... Now let's just hope it doesn't come bearing weird stains or anything...ReplyDelete
I've just returned from the Providence Place J.Crew in RI. Some notable sales:ReplyDelete
-Joley Flats in Bronze Twig sizes 6.5-8.5, $79.99
-Jayne Dresses in Tea Rose, sizes 8-10, 12, $69.99
-Coralie Flats in Brown, various 6.5-8, $29.99
Hope that helps someone.
My 20% off sale order with the yellow Maggie jacket and fuschia cashmere shawl collar sweater shipped today, yay! Hope everyone else is getting their sale orders shipped and they are NOT defected returns!ReplyDelete
I found the Duchamp Astor to be basically TTS, although it is not roomy in the armholes/shoulders. I cannot wear a thick sweater underneath, only a knit top or blouse. Because it is not meant as a winter coat, that is fine.ReplyDelete
I wear a 10 in most all J.Crew jackets and ordered 10 in the Duchamp Astor. I read other reviews last fall and winter that mentioned it was slightly small-fitting, but I didn't want to go up a size as I need a 10 up top to accommodate my bust but I have a small waist. I take a 4/6 on the bottom and if I go to a 12 jacket it will be way too floppy around the middle.
neverenoughcardis: I am lusting after the grey bubble necklace too! On a whim, I ordered one as a "ride-a-long" and now I don't want to take it back!ReplyDelete
I afraid its going to be awhile before this one goes on sale. As I recall, that's how it went with the colors that were offered last summer. I am hoping for another private sale or a jewelry promotion.
I updated my post of the new gold metallic linen jacket with irl pics:ReplyDelete
I have other reviews of new items with today's date as well.
Thanks anon@5:48 and xoxo!!! I did buy the Duchamp jacket off of ebay (it was a good price!). I went with my usual size so it sounds like it will fit. Too bad I have to wait until the Fall to wear it!ReplyDelete
I had the same problem with the button-gaping at the chest of the ringspun henley T. Sizing up didn't help. Another execution problem for JC.ReplyDelete
TOTALLY OFF TOPIC!ReplyDelete
How come nobody told me actor Patrick Dempsey (McDreamy from Grey's Anatomy) modeled for J.Crew!?
My two favorite things in the world!!!
Lee... thank you so much for sharing that!!! He is gorgeous. But a couple of those sweaters.... whoa.ReplyDelete
I just received my MacBook Pro today. After such a pricey purchase... I'm not really suppose to be shopping, however I can't seem to stop. I'm single on a one income salary and with the economy being the way it is I probably should be saving instead. Maybe I should get a part-time job at JCrew this way I can support my habit ;) Just a thought!ReplyDelete
I also checked out the new Emeryville store today- very nice!!ReplyDelete
For those of you looking for the beaded Zebra tee, they had a whole stack of them! Looked like pretty much every size.
They had some cute new spring items that I hadnt seen online or in catalog yet also, some of which I'm pretty excited about!
The Palo Alto store had a bunch of Joley flats this afternoon, in both patent and metallic. They were also marked down, even though they're full-price on the website! The patent pairs were $96 and the metallics were $80ish. I can't remember all the sizes that were there, but it might be worth a try :)ReplyDelete
I was at my local J Crew store last night to view the new arrivals and all I will say what a sorry bunch of new items! JC is going downhill fast.ReplyDelete
There is one grey zebra beaded tee in XS ledt in Rockefellar store as of last night. Jackie cardi in dessert brown is on sale for 39.99. The cotton cashmere rosette cardi in putty is on sale for 49.99. It's still full price online. All sizes are available for both cardis.ReplyDelete
Lee- priceless pics! he just gets better looking with time. He's really grown into his hair, hasn't he?ReplyDelete
It's unfortunate the new arrivals are reported to be nothing special. Although I read several similar comments after the last rollout and I found several items I liked. I won't be back in the country until early April so hopefully can view most of the items online next week.ReplyDelete
Love hearing about the new items in stores. Thanks all!
OT: Here is a Martin and Osa 20% off purchase code: 65297326. It is for instore and worked for me online.ReplyDelete
I wanted to try one of their blazers. I had the Tuxedo Blazer in my basket for over a month in black.
Has anyone purchased or tried on their blazers? I was wondering if they were TTS.
I will be going to JC over the weekend If I find some free time. I need to return the Silver Lame Bermuda shorts. The price went down by $20. I was able to take advantage of the 20% off online. I saved $25 with the shipping. I have a beige Zoey tank in a size 8 those armholes are huge. I will try to return that also.
Anon 4:24pm Lucky you getting the Nicky. Was it still on sale for 19.99? Did they have any size 6-8's. Its time to use that red bat phone.ReplyDelete
Just read Em's statement regarding the Nicky skirt sizes. Dang it no sizes for me at those two store!ReplyDelete
Joely shoes: San Francisco Westfield had a lot of them in sale section. 8, 8..5, 9 is all I remember. I didn't try them on. I think they were 89.99.ReplyDelete
McDreamy looks better with age and some cheek fat. I am not talking about those cheeks on his backside. LOL Uh maybe I am.....ReplyDelete
Normally, I come out of JCrew wishing I could buy A LOT...from 2005--2008. Now, wow, NOTHING. Quality is down and color and styles are very bland. My wallet is taking a liking to this and I haven't bought anything in a while...ReplyDelete
I've just purchased the polka-dot airy knotted blouse in FS (96100). It's from last year. Does anyone know how it fits? TIA!ReplyDelete
I went to the JC on 5th ave in NYC bought a skirt- the cashier wouldn't apply my student id! It was only when I said I wasn't interested that she brought over the "manager" and said it was a one time "courtesy." That really bothered me because they advertise the coupon and now they take it away?ReplyDelete
sorry OT... but does anyone know if the color golden cypress in the jackie cardi, was a color from last year or a new color for this season?ReplyDelete
Lexington KY Store has crystal pillow necklace on sale for $39.99. Also they had a pair of lulu metallic flats. Not sure of the price or the size, but it could be worth a call for someone!ReplyDelete
Was at my JC B&M this afternoon. Not much sale, and no extra % off. I used to work at outlet here in Vegas, so I know the SA's. One of the mgrs told me that the extra % and better sales might not happen as much since they lowered price points for spring. I left empty handed :(ReplyDelete
I did order from the web the other day and all of my items (3) shipped! I was expecting the dreaded email stating my items were sold out.
I was wondering why they wouldn't let you use your student discount? Don't they have to if the item isn't on sale? Was it on sale or something? The discrepancies J crew has with their sale/student discount is truly infuriating! Last summer on their final sale items, they let me use my student discount, multiple times. I used it spring and summer kusy with regualr sales, and no problem. The last few months I went in to buy jewelry or hair accessories, and they were like, it can't be used with any other sale, ever. After explaining to them and even showing them a receipt from last summer with an extra 15% off for the student discount, they were like, oops, you hot lucky, but that's not how it works! So annoying.
I'm sorry, this may sound dumb, but what is the red phone for in some J. Crew stores?
Has anyone actually seen the Havona tank in there store? All three of mine said they think it was online only, but I could have sworn that some JCA's saw they in store. TIA.
Last question, I promise! Has anyone seen any of the Fall 2008 pink and yellow striped cobra bracelets in their stores? I got a tip from another JCA awhile ago that they had a bunch in Beachwood OH, but when I called they said they were sold out. TIA!!
I did visit today to try on some of the new items. I ended up with a navy and white tunic (not tunic length, though, so not sure why they call it a tunic) (also, sized up). It was very flattering and selling very well. Plus, it's machine washable. :) I also loved the slub cotton cottage dress(TTS), but could only get 1 fp item. The dress will be a definite buy in the future. I tried on the cabana dress (TTS) at the request of my sa - eh, maybe when it gets super marked down. It's listed as a cover-up, but it's thick enough and long enough to wear as a dress - with a tank, of course. I also tried on a new print top (the same print as the shorts in slastena's post with new catalog pics), but it was just okay. Maybe after 2-3 markdowns. I tried on 2 knit tops - one had a square neck and was a-line - just didn't like (sized down). The other was a deep v (but not so deep to need a tank) with flowers around the collar (TTS). Very pretty, but liked the tunic and knit dress better. Plus, ATL has one that I like as well. I will probably buy the ATL one as it's a nicer knit material (not so thin). Neither knit was see through, which was nice for a change.ReplyDelete
I bought 2 extremely discounted items today (a cashmere vest and shirt for my nephew). The vest was 4.99 and the shirt was 1.99 and I was able to use the teacher discount on those. So, not sure what the problem is.ReplyDelete
Is the cobra bracelet the one that was posted on JCA a while back...the one that looks kind of phallic? If so, I might have seen them at the J. Crew in Birminhgam at the Summit.
I was just at the store around 5:30! I tried on a new shirt that was a blue and white oxford style shirt, but with little feminine touches. The label said J. Crew Haberdashry. It looks like this is a line like the vintage closet mentioned before. Really cute shirt for work, but I will probably buy on sale.
leaderboys, I was there this morning! I wondered if you were maybe one of the women in the dressing room. :) Does that shirt also come in lavender? If so, I bought it last week. It's hard to pass up a good purple, and it works well with my eyes. :) We'll have to meet there one of these days.ReplyDelete
Mel - The JCrew at South Coast Plaza in CA had a couple cobra bracelets in a couple different colors when I was there on Thursday.ReplyDelete
Got a gold-ish Kya cami for $19.99 and the plisse-strap dress for $29.99 (still $49.99) online, so I'm pretty happy. And I used my 10% off card. Yay!ReplyDelete
Mel- The jcrew in Troy, MI @ the Somerset collection mall had several cobra bracelets. Great store & Fabulous SA'sReplyDelete
has anyone seen Coralie suede FLATS (not heels :) in their local B&M? I'm looking for these in 7s...any info much appreciated!ReplyDelete
Hope this isn't too OT but I missed out a few seasons ago on the wool cashmere soiree cardigan. It has the crystal buttons on it, double breasted, and the color i would love is dark kelly green.ReplyDelete
I know it's a long shot but thought i'd try here, would love to find it if anyone has one they no longer wear and would like to sell....size medium would be great..
thanks fellow JCA's
e-mail me at
I bought a travel trench and the popular beaded zebra tee at my store this weekendReplyDelete
I saw the coralie suede flats at South Coast plaza, i was there today. They had them in light eucalyptus and i think graphite if im not mistaken. Not sure what sizes they had though. Hope this helps!
Cathy I just bought the mint Coralie Flats for 29.99 at the Grove in Los Angeles. They had brown and some other colors in different sizes. I hope this helps. They are adorable. I also purchased 2 cotton v-neck sweaters for 19.99 on in beige and another in lime and 2 printed linen Kelly belts. I got all this for a exchange on the Linen Lame Bermuda's. I repurchased them online for $25 less.ReplyDelete
I also purchase 2 skirts and a really pretty silk w/metallic long scarf at BR's.
I won't be entering any stores tommorrow when I go back to Bev Ctr to pick up my watch thats for sure!
Oh my wrong JCA mentioned in regards to the Coralies. LOL Sorry about that.ReplyDelete
ooh big THANKS Ms.Penny Z and Fiyah about the Coralie Flats, I'll definitely be calling tomorrow.ReplyDelete

fiyah: Thank-you for posting the Martin & Osa code, I finally ordered the straight leg jeans.ReplyDelete
Has anyone seen the pleated lawn skirts in the B&M stores? They come in ivory, brown and pink. They showed the ivory one in the store with a simple perfect tank and I loved the look. The skirt isn't online, and the "heather dusk" color of the tank was an in store only color. The skirt has a ballerina tutu quality to it (but totally subtle and completely wearable.) The slight fanciness of the skirt coupled with the laid back casual look of the tank is perfect. Just wondering if any of you have tried it on? It ran a bit on the small side IMOReplyDelete
Does anyone have any guesses on when they'll update the online sale section? Thanks!!ReplyDelete
L - there usually is not a big update on Sunday. But, you never know since a promo just ended. ;) Usually the updates are right around now.ReplyDelete
Pleated Lawn Skirts [Item 14531]:ReplyDelete
Heaven! Full of amazing delicate soft mini-pleats, light-as-air material that floats, and a waste that has a flattering fitted section--before it floats out to pleated skirt. I tried it on in the khaki color and bought it immediately; price, a reasonable $70. Looked amazing with tees & cardigans, but also various astrid jackets I have, and the jeans jacket with Victoria cami.
TTS for me (I'm an 8 in all pencils, this one, too). The length is just like the lovely GREEN skirt in Alexis' signature "Eiffel Tower Couples" photo. [Loved the ivory, too, but couldn't see how I would keep it clean-looking; I'm a magnet for pen marks and dropped liquids.]
Silver-Haired JC'er, I saw those too and thought they were cute because they didn't go OMGCRAZY with the pleats all the way around the skirt (which we all know can be quite unflattering on some figures).ReplyDelete
Also saw the jersey tees with the satin band across the bottom - I'm unsure about this style on anything but a super-straight figure, because the band probably hits at the hips.
^ Silver Lining: You are right--that's why, I think, the skirt works; the architecture is brilliant. [I'm wearing your wonderful red Alabama eye frames today, with all black and white JCrew.]ReplyDelete
Me, I have seen the Havona only at the Madison Collection store in NYC. As of yesterday night they were sold-out but the SA told me that they should receive more (she was unable to tell me when though). Hope it helps!ReplyDelete
I'm going to post a review soon in my blog.
silver-haired jcrewer, are you the poster formerly the professor? If so, glad you are back :-)ReplyDelete
B&Ms are offering 25% off all regular priced shoes when I went to check the new rollout today...ReplyDelete
Waiting for the joleys to get marked down a bit further though.
I was there yesterday, Saturday, at the JCrew in the Kenwood Mall in Cincinnati. I picked up a bright orange v-neck sweater for $19.99 and also broke down and bought the new strapless eyelet dress in gray. It is adorable and if you're considering it, you should snatch it up quickly because it's a store only item. They have it in navy, white and gray. I tried on a 2 but needed a 4 and they didn't have it in store. They actually had to call a couple of stores to locate on in that color and my size... It's freaking adorable. They had a range of sizes in the white and in the navy but the grays are going quick...ReplyDelete
fiyah & amanda,ReplyDelete
do either of you have the item number for the v-necks you bought? i'm looking for a couple casual sweaters for work and $19.99 sounds like a great price. thanks so much!
Casual Crew your welcome.ReplyDelete
Anon 828pm this is the item #11022 for the cotton V-neck sweaters. I picked up a XS fits perfect and a M for layering.
Does anyone have the item number for the Coralie Suede Flats? TIA!ReplyDelete
I tried on the slub cotton knit cottage dress today and my goodness is it sheer. Seriously its cover-up sheer. I tried on the black and there was no way I could wear it on a sunny day without the world seeing the outline of my inner thighs. For $69couldn't Jcrew make cotton a little thicker? It was adorable as heck but too sheer. I was sad to leave it but it needed more fabric. I could tell instantly that the quality of the dress was not like last year's dresses. Even the Plisse strap dress is made better. Sad because the cottage dress is so cute.ReplyDelete
If your thinking of ordering it plan on buying it for a cover-up or investing in a slip.
I thought I posted the item # for the Coralies here but I guess it was in another post. #11701ReplyDelete
Can you describe the shape and cut of the eyelet dress you purchased? It sounds like it must be pretty spectacular for you to have "caved" ! Is it slim or voluminous? Even better would be pics! Although a description would be fabulous. I'm always excited to hear about in-store only items. My b&m is fairly small, so I tend miss out on a bit. TIA!
