Sought & Found: Did you visit J.Crew this {past} 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 stopped by a J.Crew store this past weekend to see what's available (if anything!) in the SALE, or to see some NEW 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 was/ is carrying an additional percent off sale. Thanks in advance!!! :)

  1. i made an impulse purchase about a week ago: T-shirt dress in stripe (Item AP169). it's cute but i much prefer it belted (one of the photos sort of shows the model wearing a belt). it was final sale so i'm "stuck" with it unless i try to sell it on poshmark. not sure what i'm doing but at least it was only like $17

    anyone know when new arrivals show up?

    1. I thought Lynn had posted 7/27—tomorrow.
      I have a dress like that, the linen shift and it’s listed on posh.
      Worst case it’s fine for Beach getaways but nothing I would wear in my normal life.

    2. tango Yes tomorrow is the launch. I telephoned a store and manager told me the following: 49 boxes arrived this morning which was late and another 49 are due later today or tomorrow. They are in the midst of unpacking and she read off some items that were in the first shipment. Many I previously listed with item number. The relaxed look is prominent there is a new magic rinse color seems like a yellow garment dyed sweatshirt. Denim in new styles one of which she like so far. She didn’t go into further detail but she’s hopefully optimistic. No collection items in first shipment, she was disappointed but hopeful perhaps tomorrow. Sorry but this is all I have to offer at the moment. OT which I read recently, they’re not going to be offering as many discounts in the near future. Have a nice day everyone

    4. am i the only one who hates magic rinse? I want colors to be vibrant and bright. magic rinse is what happens when I forget to separate whites from colors.

    5. @Eeps- if I understood you correctly, my husband is the "magic rinse" culprit in my house. I hate that very faint hint of faded blue on my colors and especially whites. I rush to the wash when I see the hubby with a load of clothes just to make sure to extract my things from the basket.

  2. Is the Elysian Day print new? It’s online as a new color in a scarf AJ376 and a scrunchie. The print seems like a spring/summer floral.

    1. I just saw that too - the scarf. I think it is new. I'm not sure how many people will pay fp this late in the season but I'm going to keep an eye on it, I really love those little cotton liberty scarves.

    1. ugh before they end the discounts then they need to get the products right and the quality right. They have neither.
      I don’t mind fewer discounts but they have to make me feel like the product I’m buying is worth full price. Relaxed fit with stretchy or elastic fabrics and faded colors do not sound high end to me.

    2. I was thinking the same. More elastic waistbands? Is that what they really think we want?

      Speaking of which, I saw the newish pants in store yesterday (don’t think they are online yet), they are a cross between a 2011 foundry pant and a seaside pant. Basically a seaside pant but with visible stitching on the front pockets and what looked like a herringbone twill fabric. They had a soft moss and tan, not anything I reach for. They reminded me of the surplus pants from spring/summer 2020 but the fabric on those was dreadful. At least these looked like they would make it through the wash.

    4. Hi all! Went to store for returns! Was relatively not painful! I wanted to buy a red tote for my sister, they had 3 but because it was not available on line they could not price match it.
      Store price is 144 plus 40 off
      I called and chatted witn CS, sent pics with price from my cart …. Same deal
      Can’t price match if not online. I been checking through out the day and no inventory update
      So much for dynamic

      I did read the article, I guess if quality was there I would pay. I honestly have enough Jcrew to last me another decade lol
      But it will be hard to change from all the discounts lol

    5. Less discounts will make me a pickier shopper. This is not a bad thing. I like options but I also like a well edited wardrobe.

    6. Rolling back the discounts has been part of the new “strategy” several times over the years with changing leadership at J Crew, and it has never “stuck.” Skeptical that customers will embrace fewer discounts at J Crew w current quality level, and it’s hard for a retailer to get customers to trade up to full price even when they “say” they are willing to pay more for better quality, because that is often not the case. Deeply discounted price points for average quality is what customers have come to expect as the value proposition at J Crew and if you continue to shop there, you accept that. It’s honestly the same at virtually all their competition too because they all use the same contract manufacturers. I would love to be wrong about this, but we’ve heard it several times before.
