Spring Sale is Back {See ya later Final Sale!}

"Thanks!" to many of you, including Rosie (in this post), Ketan, as well as Pathos, Stene & Christ (in this post), who let us know the following great news from this morning.

With the arrival of Spring, so comes the Spring Sale (click here to shop online). That means the dreaded "final" in the Final Sale is officially gone, allowing for customers to return and exchange sale-priced items purchased online (& hopefully in brick & mortar stores). {wahoo!}

There's more! "Thanks!" to many of you, including Louise, who shared that J.Crew is offering free shipping on orders of $100+ with promo code SHIP100. This offer is good for Canadian orders as well and expires Wednesday, April 20, 2011.

Did you check out the Spring Sale section today? Were you able to snag any amazing deals? If so, please share! :)

  4. Really really loving the Delaney Eyelet Shirt (i want it in all 3 colors!!!) which is only $19.99 marked down from $88 BUT I can't find $100 worth of items (nor do I want to!) so I'm going to pass for now.

    I hate how their min purchase for free shipping is so high! So many other companies do a no-min special or $50-$75. Come on, J.Crew!

  5. I caved and got the Jenny dress (black). To bump the total up to $100, I added in some tees, which I'm short on anyway!

    Thanks for notifying me / us of the free shipping code! I get JC emails in the afternoon.

  7. It's about time! Now they need to do some serious markdowns and clear out the sale section. It gets tiring looking at the same old stuff all the time.

  8. I bought a dress that didn't fit when it was on final sale. That same dress is now part of the spring sale. Any chance they'll let me return it at the store anyway? I've already re-purchased the dress in another size.

  9. I visited the B&M store at Montgomery Mall in Md. this past Saturday and found the slub cotton point collar shirt in two-tone plaid marked down from $72.50 to $39.99, then another 30% off that. So I paid something like $27. It's "on-sale" now for $49.99...Pays to vigilant I guess...Really nice shirt, can't believe it was so inexpensive and that my size (xl) was available.

  10. I haven't looked at the sale section in ages so it all looks new to me! Yeah that final sale it gone. Happy Days:)

  11. I noticed this morning that some items have indeed come down in price a bit with this latest update ... but not enough, IMO. I agree with FFM, time to clear out the dead stock!! There should not be any more fall/winter inventory lingering. Would that they'd do a one-time serious blowout and be done with it! Law. They need some markdown optimization or something.

  12. Seriously, some of those things have to be priced to move! If I see that dream-zip sweater jacket one more time...

  13. silver_lining -- I just snorted my tea through my nose, reading about the dream zip sweater. Ditto everyone that they have GOT to lower some of the prices to move. I'm so very glad to see FS beat it.

  14. I miss 30% off!

    Does this mean I have to keep getting up early? I finally got 8 hours of sleep last night because I refused to get up early to check the sale section.

  15. Round up of links to irl dress pics in this post.

  16. gigiofca: Thanks for the link. I was feeling very down about not being able to wear any size of that Cecilia dress. It was nice to see at least one other person also did not like how it fit. Finally, a dress long enough to wear and it was a mess on me.
