Seek & Find: Will you visit J.Crew this Weekend?

This is the weekly "sale watch" post, to help each other find sale items at our various local J.Crew stores. ;)

If you are stopping by a J.Crew store this weekend to see what's available (if anything!) in the SUMMER sale, or to see some new SUMMER arrivals {sigh!} in person, maybe you might be willing to share that with us in this post. In particular, if you could share with us a few of the noteworthy items that are available, at what prices, and potential sizes the store is carrying (as well as the store location)- that would be fantastic!

Also, please let us know if your local store is carrying an additional percent off sale. Thanks in advance!!! :)

P.S. I noticed that many of you have already been reporting sale items (and in which stores) in other posts which by the way "thank you!" :) I really appreciate how helpful we are for each other!

  1. Lunch downtown so I will probably be going.

    OOTD of the Factory pencil skirt & Tessa Top here.

  2. Going to my SF downtown B&M to see if the No. 2 pencil skirt Deck Stripe in coastal blue is on sale. That color is sold out online in size of 2, hoping to score a deal. It would be even better if it's on sale minus 30%! *crossing my fingers*

  3. Hoping to hit a factory store this weekend. Does anyone know if the factory pencil skirts are cheaper in-store or if there are any factory promos I should be aware of? TIA!

    1. Last time I was in the factory store they didn't have better deals than the website. The skirt I got was still full price in the store.

  4. If anyone sees any featherweight cotton cardis, chambray top, or cece leather flats in a neutral color please let me know. Thanks!

  5. at this moment family is locking garage and piling logs & dead trees at bottom of driveway to keep me away, since car automatically heads for malls with JCs. Or for cute little towns with cute little "JC at the Beach" stores. Help.

  6. wellfedfred.....hee hee! You're asking US for help! The only thing that makes me feel ok about my Crew problem is enabling all of you....ha! So I'll have friends with really nice clothings in the poorhouse with me.

    ReplyDelete
  7. oops...meant really nice CLOTHES.....

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yes Fred I think the "help" here would be of a different sort, when I read your comment my thought was "hmm, sounds like fun, how many malls can we hit?...I didn't know there were JC beach shops in cute towns, let's go!"
    So many temptations for you, it would take more than a few logs if I were faced with same. I only have to stay off the website, and I'm going to an island this weekend with no internet thank goodness!
    Have a great weekend JCA's!

    1. Found one! Thank you to the Orlando store for finding me one at a different location and having it shipped to me! :)

      Lzab - the dress was $69.99 less 30%! :)

    2. Thank you very much! Hopefully they will have another size 6 around me! :)

    3. Good luck to you! I called one store in New Jersey (sold out) and randomly picked Orlando to call. The SA was super helpful (they only had a 4 left in her store). The price is awesome, love this dress (I have the skirt, too!).

      Delete
    4. Apparently there are none left in this state either and it's low stock online.. eek! act now! I really need the skirt too, but I can justify the dress right now for a wedding at least!

      Delete
    5. I think the skirt is down to 34.99 before the 30% off! I hope you can find the dress! I called customer service this morning, the CS told me that they would price match the store (promotion, not sure if in store price) if I was calling through the red phone. Maybe one of the more seasoned JCAs can comment on this!

      Delete
    6. They had a lot of sizes in the dress at both Westfield SF store and the Emeryville, CA store, I would give them a call!

  14. I'm not going to visit this weekend, but I went last night. The selection is waning, but there are occasional amazing deals to be had.

    I posted more information on my trip yesterday and some photos on my blog:

  17. I am going down to Seattle tommorow.
    ** first stop mailbox in Blaine to pick up last 30% off order ( 2 parcels in fact)
    **next downtown Seatlle Jcrew...try on things from parcels/return what I don't wnat and shop sale section
    **third stop Nordstroms rack...love this place
    **fourth stop U Village or Bellevue J crew ( maybe both if need be)...I will ask at downtown store to call ahead if there are any items I am looking for in certain sizes (thanks Rose)Any been lately to know which one is better stocked in larger sizes ?
    ** final stop is Seattle outlet for Crewlet
    ***I don't stop for food (washrooms breaks only)Add the stops up and its all day I am gone . I have a tween boy at home and a hubby who can't believe this takes all day.
    I am going to be good and ONLY get what I really like...not just because it is on SALE...PROMISE...
    Am keeping my fingers crossed for Lucca sandals in Apricot mist...Wish me luck. I will report back sat evening for Vancouverites who might want to head down since it is a long weekend. Carolyn from Vancouver

    1. Hi Carolyn - I'd like to know too. Vancouver is home for me (currently living in Alberta), and we're going there for a visit in a couple of weeks. We'll be taking a road trip down to Seattle. Curious to know which JCrew is best to go to - I doubt we'll be able to hit all 3 since we'll have our baby with us!

      Delete
    2. Carolyn and injanuity - I live in Seattle and frequent the stores here regularly. I would say my order of preference is Downtown, UVillage, Bellevue. Downtown is usually best, but the last week or so I have been pleasantly surprised at UVillage's sale inventory, and they are running the extra 30% off (not sure about Downtown but I will be popping in there later to see). I made some good finds at UVillage, so I'd check it out. Not all the sale merch is in the sale section; it's scattered around so make sure you check prices on things you like. They will also price match to online if an item is on sale but FP in store. So all of that's to say that if you can swing hitting both Downtown and UVillage, I would do both.

      Also, the trip to UVillage is worth it right now if you like Madewell. It's next door to the J.Crew, and they are still having an extra 40% off of sale as of yesterday. I found their sale section to be nicely stocked, with more on sale than is on sale online.

      Hope that helps, ladies! Have a fun trip :)

    3. pretty addicted - thanks for all the info! I'll check back in with you in a couple of weeks to see what the stores are like closer to our trip. I miss being so close to Seattle. :)

    4. Thanks as well... If you get to the downtown and know if the 30% is still on can you post and let know...I could stop a U village first...then Downtown and save Bellevue to last...oh I am just not going to sleep tonight..I get so excited about my away shopping trips as I usually only do this a few times a year. By the way I try to bring a few things home for the boys. CAROLYN from VANCOUVER

      Delete
    5. I find Madewell too young for me. I am in my late fourties. It seems very younger sister to the crew and teen/twenties apporporiate. Just my opinion though. Carolyn from Vancouver

      Delete
    6. injanuity - Sure just let me know! I'll do my best to give you an accurate assessment :)

      Carolyn - I stopped by Downtown today, and the 30% is still going. Not too many gems; it was full but kind of picked over, lots of xxsmall and xlarge sizes, so if that's you then it could be a bonanza. Also lots of Marci patent wedges. Probably worth a look in there ... you never know what you'll find. Plus they have lots of FP items (more of a variety than the other area stores). I picked up the new indigo dot boy shirt that slastena mentioned here; they didn't have it at UVillage when I was there. Anyway, I hope you have a great trip ... enjoy, and please share what you find :)

    7. Best service is Seattle Pacific Place (ask for Kusi or Lisa or any of the staff - they are super helpful and customer focused!) they go out of the way to help, big selection at University Village but not so great service (they will not do you any favors or help with sales), Bellevue Square is hit or miss, but usually has more accessories.

  18. Popped in this am. 30% off still going on but is getting picked over. Got the linen tippi in neon pink for $39.99, 9' paisley short $44.99 Nd stripe linen open stitch sweatér in golden sun/driftwood for $49.99 all plus extra 30% off! Horray!

  22. Going to the Columbus Circle store this afternoon after an appointment I have in the city. I hope they have a pair of ankle zip matchsticks in ancient fig (size 28, pleeaaase) but I'm not holding my breath. I'm also hoping for a steal on some navy Lucca Sandals (9.5) and/or a linen Tippi in some darker color.. I should get a prize just for braving the heat, IMO. =)

The orange "vibrant flame" double brulee has gone on sale for about $55 before discount (can't remember exactly), I have not seen the crystal one in my stores ever, and the blue is on sale but are mostly sold out from what I can tell. I bought all three online and the orange is my least favorite by far -- am planning to return.

  28. I made a quick stop into the Orlando store this morning, and they are still running the extra 30% off. The sale section is still packed with tons of tees, cardigans, No. 2 cotton pencil skirts, and No. 2 pencil skirts in Caribbean tweed, both in various sizes. The Brompton straw hobo was marked down to $129.99 before the discount (still full-price online) and there was one of them left. The Café capri in silk foulard is $99.99 in-store before the discount - still $159.99 online. There was one purple Lucille eyelet dress in a size 4, as well as two Ella dresses in Garden floral size 4, and one size 00. I looked for the pencil skirt in Garden Floral for those who mentioned they were looking for it, but didn't see any. The Attaché dress in linen-canvas was marked down to $34.99 before the discount. I saw sizes 2 and 4 in both colors of the dress.

  32. The deals are irresistible. With my educator discount I got the Linen Tippi for $17! Also couldn't resist the No. 2 in Caribbean Tweed (GORGEOUS colors) and the Tillary Pursette or whatever it is called. Also placed an order for Bennett Chinos online because in store they are $29.99 (which after discounts $17.24) but still full price online! Oh happy day.

  40. At Yorkdale today - 30% off still going strong (but no educator discount, boo). Sale section seems to be creeping its way around most of the second room. Lots of selection but some things in limited sizes - for ex. 12 Tessas in safari cat, all of them sizes 0 or 00 (really?) But worth a rummage - ring-around eyelet tops on sale $48, open-weave stripe linen sweaters $56 -30%, both still fp online. Lots and lots of the garden floral dresses in all sizes.

    2. Lisa, I got item 84368 today for $49.99 plus 30% off making it $35. It was marked down in both the yellow/tan and navy/white color ways. I recommend the smaller of your Jcrew sizes as it is roomy. I took an xs and is still plenty roomy and being linen, it will probably stretch when worn.. I got the yellow and Iove it especially for $50 off fp.

    5. I did the same thing! Didn't expect to like the sweater as much as I did, totally a steal with the extra % - but yes, you do have to size down at least once. There weren't many smaller sizes left in either colorway as a result, so if anyone is thinking of getting it, take that into consideration.

  41. I did. Had to check it out for those items that were still on my wish list.

    Replies
    1. I ordered the Maritime Stripe blazer a few months ago during a 20% off knits sale. I ended up returning it as I found it a little blah and didn't do much for my complexion. I ordered the 'dragonfly blue' which is navy stripe on off-white, which is more like a pale greyish beige in real life. Runs large - I ordered my usual size Small and it was too big on me. Sorry - not the greatest review but I hope that helps!

      Delete
    2. straycat - I reviewed it and have links to 6 or so other blogger irl pics in this post. Spoiler alert. I didn't get the feeling.

    3. Straycat, I own it. I was silly and ordered at at full price (crazy) I know. With that being said, I do like it. It does run slightly on the big side. I like that it is washable and washed it for the first time this week. The area around the pockets seemed to shrink up, and I dried for about 15 minutes then line dried. I am hoping it still looks ok next time I wear it. :/

      Delete
    4. I just picked this up last night at my store. I really love it! It's the perfect weight, I love that is was a little fitted in the waist, and the not so structured look of it made it even more appealing to me for summer. I bought the navy/ecru stripe color way. I think it is more versatile for styling. HTH

  43. Went to the Columbus Circle B&M. Kind of hit or miss. Overall, if you're a size 00, 0, 2, or 10, you're in luck. Saw two coral Tillary purses for $69 before the extra 30% as well as a cedar plank Margate Purse. A whole slew of pencil skirts were on sale as well for something like $60 before the 30%. Also, all 3" chino shorts were $35. Lots of loose-fitting tanks, not much in the way of shoes. Lots of silk foulard cafe capris and button down shirts.
    I found the last pair of ankle-zip toothpick jeans in ancient fig, and they were size 28 but they were waaay too small. Long story short, the SA I talked to was a saint and she ended up calling the catalog for me. Grand total = $41. Win.

    1. Also, a number of linen Tippis in Cinnamon and the purple shade, $50 before the 30%. I passed because the fit was weird on me for whatever reason.

    2. emilybethzzz, did you think the toothpicks ran a full size smaller? I've been wanting a pair, but I'm not sure if I should go with the size I normally wear in matchsticks and designer jeans. The toothpicks do look tight!

      Delete
    3. I think they're supposed to be a little snug, but I would definitely order a size up-- I take a 6 in skirts and shorts, and the size chart online says that converts to a 28 in pants, but man, those suckers were unattractively tight! HTH =)

  44. I stopped in quickly this morning and what to my wondering eyes should appear? The Chambray top I've had my eye on for months! Just one, a catalog return and yes, my size. The JC angels were smiling on me. ;) I also got the ring around eyelet top. This 30% off sale is absolutely killing me! Also, I have the Tessa in chili but am debating buying the white as well. Does anyone have a store with lots of white in stock? Any opinions on whether or not two of the same top is overkill?

    1. Hi, I just got back from the Prince St store in NYC and saw some sequin anchor tanks - didn't see what size but worth a try!

  46. Oabrook IL has a lot of pencil skirts. Floral - several 6s and a couple of 2s; sovereign paisley in 00; a good range of sizes in black, maroon, gold & purple. I think the Bright Sun tie espadrilles were 49.99. One seersucker jacket in a 4. There were also a couple of sm. Tillary bags. 30% sale still in progress. Selected suiting is also 30% off.

    I bought a safari Brompton mini hobo.

  48. I found the ram, giraffe, snail and brulees at the Madison Ave store. They had more when I left (they have no sale rack, FYI, but a lovely bathroom.)

    1. Unknown-thanks so much! I'll call in the morning!
      Was it the double brûlée or the single? Did you notice what colors? Thanks again!

      Delete
    2. Sorry that my name shows up as Unknown. I know it looks creepy! I was on a phone when I posted this, and couldn't change my name for some Google related reason (and I'll just stick to it now for the sake of consistency).

      They had the green single brule (I bought one). They had the double brule in that bright orange color. They definitely had more than one ram bracelet, and more than one giraffe bracelet--unless the SAs all bought them. You should also ask about the snail bracelet if you want one--it's only $15.

      I also have been meaning to write how much I love this blog and appreciate it. I've been lurking here for quite some time. And then suddenly today, when I found these pieces of jewelry, I had to post what info I had.

      But if it weren't for all of you, I would never have known the girafee, ram, etc were on sale. It was so odd to walk into the Madison Ave store (I just happened to be there--not my nabe) and ask "Where is the sale rack?" And they looked at me like I had six heads and told me there was no sale rack. At first they also tried to tell me the jewelry wasn't on sale. But I knew it was because of all of you.

      So thanks, Gigi, for this amazing blog.

    3. Hi Unknown! I was in NYC two weeks ago (three?) and went to several J C's there....the Columbus Circle didn't have a sale rack either! And they had dozens and dozens of items full price that are on sale in other stores AND online!
      PS Gigi has her own blog (Gigi's Gone Shopping)..This blog is administered by Alexis (Thank you Alexis!!!!) Gigi refers to this JCA blog as "the mothership" of all our blogs! We all do, actually! Welcome!

    4. Thank you, Suzy for explaining J Crew Aficionada as The Mothership. Imo, J Crew is not The Mothership, nor are any other retailers. Alexis is the owner and amazing mastermind behind this blog. I've been commenting quite a bit here during the recent sales, along with some others (ahem straycat, lol), but this amazement is not me.

      I agree that all the info we share is so helpful. And now I'm the proud owner of a giraffe bracelet that I totally didn't need, but love. Doh!

    5. So embarrassed. I meant thank you Alexis (and of course everyone else)!

    6. Hi all - just a quick tip, the Columbus Circle sale rack does exist, it's just really hard to find. It's on the second floor and you have to go through the Crewcuts section to get to it. I was also at the Madison Ave store the other day and the sale rack was quite sizable. It's on the second floor across from the registers. Hope this helps!

      Delete
    7. Whoops - I just realized I confused Fifth Ave with Madison Ave. Sorry! The Madison Ave sale rack comes and goes. If it is there, it's toward the back of the store, behind the shoe area. In my opinion, they have the worst sale selection of all the NYC stores so I rarely go there.

    2. Mommy dearest thanks for the reply:-) I have a wedding anniversary and birthday coming up so the skirt will come in handy. I hope it isn't too fancy for this sahm either but I do work from home with clients a couple days per week. I have quite a collection of j crew favorite tanks that I will wear with it as well as a cardigan

  53. OMG! I was at my local b&m on Wednesday and the picking was eh...but today I went back and there was SOOOO much but very little was in my size. :(

    I did get the linen striped sweater, scarf with red flowers (many of the scarfs were on sale), a yellow & green bangle all for great prices. The bangles were $9.99. They had a bunch of other items that I loved but they went onsale and almost all gone! It was crazy because I was just there and many of the items are full-price online... a few items I remember are: the blue Ring-around eyelet top, Lace placket tee, Ribbon-stripe boatneck tee, Smocked top in dapple dot, Vintage cotton pocket tank in stripe, Anchor popover hoodie & more.

    My B&M didn't have much besides tees and tanks. I'd like a red Tessa but calling stores can be such a gamble. It would be nice if the website and the stores had more congruent pricing, but of course I don't have to tell you all that. ;)

  60. I woke up late this morning and missed the linen schoolboy blazer in size 4, navy! Waah! Typical luck, the day I sleep in due to exhaustion (yesterday was spent walking for hours in near 40deg Celsius weather, while I was helping to shepherd daycare children around the city zoo). Huge thanks to Fabulous Florida Mommy and Cate for letting me know. Must continue stalking... (If anyone spots it, let me know!!)

    However, some good news - after YEARS of hunting on Ebay, I finally got my hands on a pair of the red suede Lucia bow flats from winter 2007!

  62. Just got off the phone with the Chestnut Hill, MA store (617-332-0122). The woman I spoke to was very very nice. I grilled her about their sale necklaces. I'm not sure if anyone is interested in these but here's what she mentioned.

    They have the double crystal brulee necklace in red and navy. I bought the navy (hope I don't regret this - never seen it in person!) and didn't think to ask if they have another but they might. It was $38.49 after the 30% off.

    Other necklaces:

    item 75492 - pearl and coral necklace $59.99 ($41.99 after 30%) 5 strands, 3 pearl 2 coral

    item 90032 - bauble cascade necklace - $79.99 ($55.99 after 30%) - they have 2 of them right now

    item 85042 - tessellate necklace in neon peach - I think this is $49.99 but don't quote me on that ($34.99 after 30%)

    Hope this helps someone - and can anyone reassure me about the double crystal brulee in navy?

    Single brulee necklace?

    I'm sorry to keep posting but I'm scattered as to what colors of each are on sale. I know the turquoise and the yellow in the single brulee necklace are marked down, and the clear, navy, red in the double brulee, are these the only colors marked down? I'd love to find the single brulee in a color other than the turquoise/yellow. TIA!

If you do, could you be so kind to put them on hold and/or email bankygirl (at) gmail (dot) com? I just discovered the brand and am kind of obsessed with their shoes. Or any shoe for that matter, no use covering up my obsession ;-)

  71. Hey everybody.....Just came back from checking out the Mothership. One store didn't have anything I wanted (all the cool jewelry was gone) then I hit the other store. Here I picked up the cream color anchor bracelet, the cheetah printed calf hair little magic wallet, a navy and orange paisley scarf and in the matching paisley a makeup bag (or could be a little purse) ALL for $63.66. I was wearing my sequin anchor top with modern red chino shorts, a denim jacket and navy leather tote and Tory flats and the sales gals in Francesca's, Talbots, Anthro and Banana Republic asked me where I got my top! I told them to hot foot it right over to the Crew before they were all gone! Hope you are all finding some goodies!

It's off white with wider navy stripes, a 3/4 sleeve which I love cause I always have a party of bracelets going on. LINED....yes, lined! Fitted and very cute.....$13.00. Yes, $13.00 on clearance. They also had red/white, black/white too. It looks adorable over my new anchor sequin top.

  81. Something I've learned.....When checking out the jewelry on sale, remember to check the mannequins. I've found several items that the SA's have forgotten to remove, mark down and put in the sale area. And you have to look way up near the ceiling sometimes at those mannequins as well. Hoping this might help someone find a forgotten treasure!

  91. Please forgive me if this is OT, but what do you all think would be the best way for me to get a really good in-store PS? I live at least two hours from the nearest brick and mortar, and I tried working with an online PS who wasn't very helpful at all about tracking down in-store sales/prices for me.

    I finally thought I'd found a good one at a store in IL, but the PS who offered her services there hasn't answered any of my last three emails. I feel like I need someone who will get back to me quickly (and helpfully), especially during sales like these. Can anyone recommend a good in-store PS in the Midwest (or anywhere, for that matter, since I'm not close to anything)?

    I feel at my wits' end for how to find a J. Crew PS who will actually help me! Thanks much!
