Don't worry, I am still all about the Crew! But sometimes there are codes/ offers from other retailers that might be useful for some J.Crew Aficionadas & Aficionados, like now...
By now most of you already know about Land's End latest line... LE Canvas (click here to shop online).
A big "thanks!" to friends at LE Canvas, as well as several JCAs on this blog including Michelle, who let us know about an additional 20% off sale and reduced prices on customer favorites. This offer expires Tuesday, July 27, 2010.
For access to the 20% off sale, click on the following link: http://bit.ly/Extra20off. The discount will be automatically applied once you click on the link and check out the shopping cart.
Happy shopping! :)
I was making some returns to LE this weekend and the associate was nice enough to tell me that if you called the LE department within Sears, the associate can place the order with the free shipping plus you will get the 20% off.ReplyDelete
They really do have great customer service!
I had some stuff in my cart all weekend, namely some super cute kids' seahorse beach towels (for myself! lol) and a few bathing suits, but when I happened upon the ON 30% off promo (+free ship, + I had a $10 rewards card to use), I let the LE Canvas stuff fall away.ReplyDelete
Has anyone ordered any of their bikinis? Judging from the size charts, I should take a Medium bottom. However, I pretty much always need a Large bottom no matter what brand or cut, because I don't like looking like a sausage busting out of its casing. :-/
My difficulty with the sizing is what's kept me from pulling the trigger on my LE C order.
I have purchased about a dozen items from LEC this year and have been very satisfied with all of them. jcrew is getting less and less of my money.ReplyDelete
I purchased a few things when they were 30% with free ship before and am very happy with everything, great fit! I will also say that one of my dresses was back ordered and in the meantime, went on further sale, so I emailed them for a PA and they did it right away.ReplyDelete
How is their sizing? I've never ordered from them before. Usually for J.Crew I buy XS and 0 (and sometimes those are too big for me).ReplyDelete
Anyone know when the fall rollout for LE Canvas drops? I'm assuming it's fairly soon after this sale ends. Looks like they're trying to clear out all their spring/summer merc.ReplyDelete
I only bought one item from LEC so far, so I'm not real helpful with sizing. I have the fit and flare dress, which is ADORABLE and which i bought after FFM extolled its virtues on her blog! I was on the fence about what size to order but I got my usual shirt size (since the bottom half is billowy) and it fits like a glove. So that would be my advice -- the bottom half will pretty much fit anyone, it's how it fits on top that the #s correspond to. JMO....ReplyDelete
Love LEC and their crazy deals! I have had good luck with a few of the LEC items I've ordered, including the Fit and Flare dress and the modal convertible dress. They are both very cute, but I've been LIVING in the convertible dress since I bought it - love!!! [I have IRLs of both of these on my blog]. I still haven't completely cracked the sizing though...ReplyDelete
I understand canvas runs small, regular LE true to size or slightly baggyReplyDelete
I LOVE the fit and flare and convertible dresses, too. I think Canvas runs TTS to slightly big, while regular LE runs big. I almost always get XLs in JC buttoned cardis like the Jackie to avoid gaping, and I could have fit two of me in the LE XL, I would have had to get an M and it would have been the correct slouchy fit for the sweater.ReplyDelete
love...I too am a 0/XS in J Crew, with 0 being too big a times. I have purchased a few items from LEC: in pants and skirts, the 0 fits great; for shirts, the XS works for me; XXS in the cardigans. Hope that helps!ReplyDelete
I was in Sears today and got quite a few Canvas tees and a two pairs of pants. All 50% off PLUS another 20% off. You cannot beat that!!ReplyDelete
@Quiet Nights The salesgirl said they had all their Fall merchandise out back in the stockroom, they needed to clear out all of the summer merchandise because there wasn't any room.
My daughter is a size 0 and wears an XXS in Lands End Canvas tops
(mostly we'ver purchased tees).
thanks SEMom, dancerb26 and everyone else who gave input into their experience with sizing. i really appreciate it. i love the colors of the Boyfriend V-neck Cardigan Sweater, i'm hoping size XXS will work out.ReplyDelete
I wear p0/0/xs in jcrew tops and xs/0 fits me fine in LEC. I would recommend xxs in the LEC cardigans.
