"Looking to LOVE" with J.Crew

This is the weekly "Looking to LOVE with J.Crew" post, a place to share our favorite experiences with J.Crew.

If you have recently experienced a positive situation with 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 stellar experiences with purchases & orders, promotions/ offers, in-store visits, transactions with store associates, etc.


  1. I guess this is as good a place as any to put this...
    I had a LOVE(LY) conversation with one of the managers at the Garden State Plaza store today, and he told me that they're having a charity event tomorrow from 4-8pm and on Saturday from 10am-2pm. If your purchase totals $150 or more, you get an additional 15% off, and this can be stacked on top of any other promotions on regular price or sale merchandise in the store. 10% of all sales will go directly to CASA of Bergen County ( From their website, "Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children of Bergen County is an independent, nonprofit organization of professionals and trained volunteers who have been appointed by the NJ Family Court to advocate for children removed from their homes due to abuse and/or neglect. CASA works to ensure that needed services and assistance are made available to these children while helping to move them toward safe and permanent homes." This is a great cause, and delicious mini cupcakes will also be served. :)

    I asked if the event was only in-store, and he said that no, they would also take orders over the phone, so if you've been waiting for an extra special promo to pick up some new holiday items (and remember, GSP is one rollout ahead of any of the other stores), this may be the opportunity you've been waiting for. The phone number for GSP is (201)845-9292. Riverside Square (201)489-5180 and Tice's Corner (201)391-4123 will also be participating.

    It's always nice to have something new to wear, but it also feels great to give back!

    1. This is such great info. I may just place an order over the phone tomorrow!

  2. I just want to give a shout-out to J. Crew Customer Service. It's not perfect but I find they try to do their best everytime.

    I just called Customer Service about a delay in the shipping of my Kate Spade Saturday order. I received the worst customer service and a dose of attitude I couldn't believe. After trying to find an address to voice my compliant (because clearly the telephone rep didn't care) and not finding anywhere to send a complaint, I went to the web and found this post. I will never order form Kate Spade Saturday again. Unbelievably the most discourteous service I have ever encountered.

    A refund of the extra I paid for 2-day shipping would have solved the problem for me.

  3. I love the Stretch Ribbed Merino Wool Sweater. Someone mentioned pilling in a review on the JC site, but I've worn mine four times now and not one pill do I see.
    I can't get over how warm and soft it is. My full review here.
