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. Ebates rates are pretty high for some other retailers (e.g. Nordstrom is at 14%). Good time to get some makeup!

  2. Some J.Crew-like items in my 'You Look Very Familiar...' post here. Included this week are alternatives for the J.Crew Collection linen slicker, silk Frances cami, and Tortoise and brass link necklace, to name a few. :)

  3. Piperlime code - H8QNCXLGMQMC. 20% off sitewide.

  4. Review of Kate Spade's city stripe Sidney, which is in the current surprise sale. Sale ends tonite.

  5. Brooks Brothers factory is having a Victoria's Day sale at select locations in the US, for all of the Canadian shoppers coming over I presume. We Americans who live in the border states (and PA!) will enjoy the discounts too :) 40% off "throughout the entire store", not sure what that means. Sale runs May 16-20.

    Locations that are having the sale:
    Corisson Mills
    Niagara Falls
    Grove City
    Birch Run
    Settlers Green
    Log Jam
    Auburn Hills
    Eastern Hills
    Destiny USA

    1. I might just stop by the Destiny USA one, since I need to return some stuff to the Crew anyway.

  6. Target has the cutest seahorse print in a cardigan and dress. Yes the dress is polyester but no different than the ones at factory. The dress is navy with orange seahorses and the cardigan is ivory with pink seahorses. Bought em both!

  7. Was intrigued by Everlane's story and needed a basic color tee-shirt. I am very happy, placed the order on May 15 and got one of the tee-shirts yesterday. Distribution Center appears to be in Aurora, CO which is perfect. TTS based on size charts, I took a small. Very soft cotton, fits well. Well worth $15 and free shipping for 2+ items.

  8. Tory Burch Sale - Save up to 30% Off Clothing, Handbags, & More for a limited time.

    Lands' End and Canvas Lands' End are offering 30% Off Everything and Free Shipping on orders of $50+ with code SPARK pin 1315 at checkout until 5.21.13.

    GAP is offering 40% Off All Sale Styles with code GAPSALE at checkout until 5.19.13.

    More details, as well as my picks for each retailer in this post.
