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 Anthropologie, 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.


  1. Boden overview HERE.
    Brooks Brothers review HERE.

  2. Madewell reviews here and Anthro reviews here.

  3. ajc-thanks for the Boden reviews. Just received my order from there and LOVE everything. Like you mentioned they are more stay at home mom friendly than J.Crew. J.Crew's final sale length has done me in and I am shopping elsewhere.

  4. For those of you who are Lemlem fans, has a bunch of items on sale for the next six days. Here is an invite link if anyone needs to join (it's free, like Gilt):

  5. Lord and Taylor is having its friends and family sale. 25% most things with code FRIENDS. I picked up some Kate Spade jewelry.

  6. Old Navy - 30% off for Gap family cardholders thru 4/29 with ONSTUFF30. Also good in-store.

    Today, Wed, 4/18 only -- print this coupon for 40% off your purchase in-store.

  7. Lands End and Lands End Canvas are having a 30% everything sale with Free shipping at $50. Good through Monday, 4/23

    Promotion Code: ENJOY30

    I usually need to size down in all LE and LEC clothing.

    My picks:
    - LEC Cafe Cardigan, $50 (some colors $29.99)
    - LEC Heritage Cardigan, $19.97
    - LEC Eyelet Panel Tank, $17.99
    - LE Emma Classic Ballet, $24.97. Took regular shoe size.

    1. There are sooo many cute things! I got an e-mail that included a code for free shipping on everything. It says it doesn't work on all clearance orders, but it did for me.

      Code PICK30
      Pin 3022

      I placed an order, obvi. I also did a post about some of the cute items I found.

      The prices are insane!

  8. Not sure if someone's posted this before, but I was skimming a Boden catalog and was stunned when I came upon the Riviera Shirtdress. While the cut is more traditional and it's cotton not silk, it bears a striking resemblance to the beloved J.Crew Vintage Violet print shirtdress!
    Just wanted to pass it along. :D
