It's nice to see one of these percent off & free shipping offers over at Madewell! :)

Will you be checking out Madewell's collection? What pieces are you interested in getting? Please share! :)


  1. There are a couple of things I've been contemplating and this is a pretty decent promo, so I may just take advantage of it. Too bad you can't combine shipping with J.Crew like you can when ordering from Gap/BR/ON/Piperlime or Athleta.

  2. I've been wishing the same thing FFM. They should be able to accomodate combo shipping. The items ship back to the same warehouse. I wish JCrew & Madewell offered interchangeable gift cards too.

  3. Madewell very nicely accommodated my price adjustment, even though I was just out of the time-frame window. The rep was very "peppy", to say the least :). I appreciated it - especially since I hadn't received my original order yet (and we're talking a scarf from $34.99 to $19.99!)

    If we are talking about improvements, I would love that the dollars spent at Madewell could be combined with my JC dollars on the JC card.

    Nice promo - I didn't think Madewell would have one before the end of the holiday season. I wish I had waited to get my oxfords :(

  4. I would love to know what JCA's are loving over at Madewell. :) I have a Madewell gift card, but no stores close to me.

  5. I'm pretty excited about this. Madewell promos are hard to come by and this is a good one too. Too bad I placed an order YESTERDAY and now crossing my fingers for a price adjustment.

    I like the silk intermission top -- a tough take on the lace panel blouse. The pemblerly blouse is a good basic blouse with beautiful bracelet sleeves. I love the details on the envelope blazer. I also like the unexpected incorporation of velvet in the velvet-stripe cardigan.

  6. My capelet arrived and I really like it. The sweater feels soft & light but not paper thin. It's tts (I would not size up or it may become to drapey looking) & I think it will go well w/pants or a skirt & boots. I love that it's different than a regular old cardi. My son said I looked like the batman! but who walks around w/their arms outstretched to the side anyway?

    Carnivore Girl, the super nice CS rep. just credited my order from six days ago because the f/p item went on promo. within 7 days of the *ship* date (not the *order* date).

    I placed another order for their rail straight cords & jeans & tried the Oversized cardi heather soot. Hoping for more great results.

  7. Thanks, IRL. That is good to know. Still haven't heard back after I sent the email requesting price adjustment. *fingers still crossed*

  8. Grrr.....

    No price adjustment for me, apparently. I have to order everything again. I hate playing this game.

  9. I just ordered the gatsby necklace (item #: 34722, $22.49), the striped sheen scarf (item #: 36495, $22.49), the autumn blooms skirt (item #: 29888, $44.99) and the delicate drape tee in olive (item #: 35989, $33.76)

    Free shipping and saved $55.74. Not too bad - I hope that the items work out.

  10. All I really wanted was the Gatsby necklace, but I ended up ordering so much just to use the discount!

  11. I LOVE Madewell and I am not at all in what I would consider their demographic, at 40 and counting.

    I took advantage of sales earlier in the season and got some espadrilles and Bensimons. I also got a fabulous leather belt with a brass buckle that I wear several times a week, for some crazy price that was like $15. I like their collaboration pieces a lot!

    I have also noticed, as someone who dislikes the JC blended sweaters with acrylic, that Madewell has a number of 100% wool offerings.

    I am sometimes very confused about the difference between Madewell and JCrew. Sometimes I think JCrew is more Madewell than JCrew.

    I agree that it would be great if the two brands were more in sync in terms of shipping, gift cards, etc..
