Weekly Share: Other JCrew-like Retailers

Preface: A big "thanks!" to Amy who suggested a weekly "Other JCrew-like Retailers" post about current experiences with other non-J.Crew retailers. I think it is a brilliant idea and will try it out for a few weeks. Hopefully this will help out our fellow JCAs! :)

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 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.

  4. I got the boyfriend jean from Ralph Lauren Rugby and love! The fit is great, the quality is very good. They were $49 on sale with free ship. Lauren and Rugby frequently have good sales and promos.

    I also stalked the platform bootie in cognac on the Talbots website and snagged them when they popped back. It seems Talbots updates all day long at various times so if there is something you are looking for, check often.

  5. Ann Taylor is 40% off entire purchase with code SAVE40 at checkout, and they've added things to their sale section.

  6. Cashmere sweaters were $19.99 at the Lord & Taylor outlet. I haven't bought them before so can't speak to the quality, but $19.99 is pretty good ;)

  7. I scored at Bloomie's today. They were having an extra 40% off many markdowns and then an extra 15% off for using your bloomingdale's card. I got 2 dkny and 1 elie tahari dress for $275 total. :)

  8. Oh, and just a PSA to any Tory Burch fans out there. Their website operations are a total mess. We're talking 2008 JC website upgrade mess times 100. They are crazy backlogged on shipments and continue to send out wrong items. If you look at their FB page you can see all the complaints. So if you are eyeing some Tory Burch, buy from Bloomie's or Nordstrom instead.

  9. Eddie Bauer has 30% off everything in the stores today. Offer is not valid online. I realize EB is nothing like J.Crew but thought I'd post in case people want to buy gifts for others who like the store.

  10. Talbots has a great sale going on; just updated yesterday with new markdowns. Free shipping if you have a credit card with them. Also placed an order yesterday at 3:00 and it arrived today at noon:) Great customer service.

  11. Banana Republic - The latest coupon series is a BOGO. Buy one regular price item, get 60% off a second regular price item. Good Sats in Jan -- Jan 8, Jan 15, Jan 22. A separate coupon for each day. One-time use. No photocopies. The usual drill. There is no online code. It's possible we may see them via email as we have seen with the 40% coupons in the past.
