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 FALL sale, or to see some new HOLIDAY 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!!! :)

  2. Not me, but I did place an order before Christmas -- and while the status says 'released', I haven't seen any action on it in days. Waiting to get the dreaded 'sorry' email, urgh.

    I did manage to snag a stadium-cloth peacoat on eBay for $99. It's black, which isn't really the color I wanted, but I saw too much fluctuation in pricing over the last few days to take a chance on final sale. The coat inventory also was all over the place. Aside from that, I'm too skittish to take a chance on colors I haven;t seen IRL. I really think I'd like the Torch Orange color, but I just can't take the chance that I might be stuck with it.

  3. Elaine,

    Good choice to go with basic black. I have a box of stuff from final sale in my basement that I am stuck with due to fit but also AWFUL color. I won't buy final sale anymore b/c I cannot afford to waste money.

    I hope you don't get the dreaded email and your items all ship:)

  5. Went to a Crewlet on the 26th. While much of the merchandise had been picked over, there were a lot of great sales. Jewelry was an additional 50% off, clearance was also an additional 50% off too.

  6. Visited the 5th & 17th store in NYC yesterday morning to make some returns. Found a Starry night mini, still FP online, for $41.99 after sale and promo. Guess I'm set for New Year's! :)

    Saw lots of merino turtlenecks and dream zip cardigans in the sale section. Also a limited number of Fireside plaid town minis and Bubble pencil skirts (I forget the exact name of the latter; it's the ivory pencil skirt with a bubble print and a hint of metallic).

    I have one last return to make and will be hitting 45th & Madison today or tomorrow... they tend to have a better sale section than the 5th Ave store so I'll report back if I find any must-haves at must-have prices.

  7. I'll be hitting the Willow Grove JC later this week while visiting MIL ... they usually have a great sale section. If anyone happens to go before Thursday, can you LMK what you see? Gracias!

    Also, OT, but does anyone know if any of the Lands' End stuff at Sears is marked down (in store)? TIA

  8. I have some returns to make but I'm afraid to hit the crowd at the mall since I have two little ones to tag along...

  9. I went to the J.Crew in King of Prussia, PA yesterday (yes, during the blizzard... it was still packed!!!). I scored myself a beautiful down puffer in a dark green. It was shiny, though. I've never seen this puffer in a store or online. Does anyone know the name of it? It has a tight and short fit, but it was marked 49.99 and 30% off all sales, so it came up to 34.99. The best part is that my boyfriend bought it as an additional Christmas gift!

  11. SFC, that is probably the Flyweight Puffer. It was online on and off these few days for sale price of $89.00 but it currently appears to be sold out.

    I went to Crewlet today and Factory Jackies and Bling Button Cardigans were both $19.99 each!

  12. Are we expecting new arrivals online today?

  13. New arrivals did not arrive on the floor today due to the snow. But, my ps pulled a dress for me to try on and I ended up getting it. It's an eyelet and comes in white and navy - super cute and I know it will fly out of the stores even though I can't wear it for a couple of months. :) Also got to try on the drapey stripe tank and while it's cute, it's not for those who have a bigger chest. The vertical stripes just made me look bigger. I will probably not make it back down this week to see all of the new arrivals. My ps said they got quite a few minis - he held one up and it was tiny!

  14. I stopped by my not-very-busy local J. Crew to return an item that was bought online last week. I had ordered a "large" Woolrich Peacoat but when I opened it I quickly discovered that they had sent me a "medium" wrapped in a plastic bag labeled "large". When I called customer sevice for an exchange I was told they were sold out of "large" - grrrrrrrrrrrrr! They called everywhere to try to find me a "large" but I just received an email with bad news - no luck. I'd still love to find this coat as I spent weeks waiting for it to go on sale! It's all very frustrating. Oh, well. Thanks for listening fellow J. Crew lovers. Buck
