Weekly Share: Other JCrew-like Retailers

This is the weekly "Other JCrew-like Retailers" post (similar to the "Off On A Tangent" posts), where we can share our finds from other retailers that have offerings similar to J.Crew (like LE Canvas, Gap, BR, Talbots, Ann Taylor, and the like.)

If you have recently encountered items that are similar to J.Crew, maybe you might be willing to share that information with us in this post.

Please feel free to share your story on almost any topic— including experiences with certain merchandise pieces, promotions/ offers, in-store visits, transactions with store associates, etc.

  3. What is up with all of the sheer tops this spring??? I ordered 3 different tops from Ann Taylor Loft and they are all so sheer I cannot wear them. Of course they were not sheer on the web site. Same problem with Gap. BR's tops all look totally sheer, you can't see through them in the pictures on the web site but now I'm wise and I can tell just by the drape of the fabric. Honestly, do they think that we want to show off our bras to our coworkers? I don't!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing the Gap/BR/ON code, FFM. I am LIVID that it is connected to one's email address. Apparently Gap sent offers to specific email addresses and you can only use the code sent to your email. Discounts go up to 35%. I had an entire cart full, but don't think I'll order I'm so annoyed.

  5. I should edit my comment: I'm not sure whether the code is linked to one's email or browser window. I did another checkout with an alternate email address on another computer and got a much better code. So go figure.

  7. mommydearest - The Gap family has changed their promos to cookie based and/or emailed based. At least for the time being. I despise knowing that there are tiered discounts. I keep rolling the dice for 20% and that's the lowest discount amount. I also dislike the game of taking the stuffsave coupon in-store to see what discount it yields. I think you can actually check the code online if you do a mock checkout, but still. HUGE turnoff w/the current promos.

  8. @mommydearest --- Sorry about the BR promo you got. Read the comments section on this page carefully for next time. :)

    The other way to do it is visit the BR page, clear your cookies, visit again, and keep doing that till the 40% code banner shows up.

  9. Thank you, Gigi and Rosie :) I was SO MAD yesterday - guess you could tell ;) I could even understand them assigning codes based on whether you're a regular shopper, whether they're trying to lure you back, or whatever, but a random code on your computer is pretty irritating.

    Mildly disappointed to see the discount went up to 40%....ah, well...

  10. Talbots continued its 30% off in stores. I would like an Audrey tape sweater for an event I'm going to next Wednesday.
