Another Flash Sale at J.Crew Factory {31% off everything & free shipping!}

"Thanks!" to  many of you, including GigisGoneShopping (in this post), who shared the following email & promotion from J.Crew.

J.Crew Factory is offering 31% off and free shipping with promotional code CANDYPLS. This offer expires today at 11:59PM EST. The fine print includes:
**Offer valid on purchases made at jcrewfactory.com on October 31, 2014, 12:01am ET through 11:59pm ET. Offer not valid in J.Crew or J.Crew Factory stores, at jcrew.com or on phone orders. Offer cannot be applied to previous purchases or the purchase of gift cards and cannot be redeemed for cash or used in combination with any other offer. Offer not valid on women's puffer vests, men's suiting and footwear, kids' slippers, boys' footwear or all third-party branded merchandise. To redeem, enter code CANDYPLS in the promo code box at checkout. Free shipping valid on orders shipping to the continental U.S. and U.S. P.O. Boxes via economy shipping (6 to 8 business days) and to Canada via standard shipping (4 to 7 business days). Return requests must be made in accordance with our return policy. Limit one promotional code per order. Offer valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms of offer are subject to change.
First and foremost, this is a great promotion. Worth noting that the prices for some items went up since the Factory First promotion. However, with the additional percent off, many items are actually cheaper than two days ago.

Honestly, J.Crew Factory has so much elasticity in the prices that it really turns me off. I feel like, why bother.

Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? If so, please share!

Seek & Find: Will you visit J.Crew this 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 stopping by a J.Crew store this 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 is carrying an additional percent off sale. Thanks in advance!!! :)

P.S. I noticed that many of you have already been reporting sale items (and in which stores) in other posts which by the way "thank you!" :) I really appreciate how helpful we are for each other!

Happy Halloween! {are you celebrating with J.Crew?}


HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!  

I love Halloween!!! Such a wonderful day where we can dress up in the most fantastic outfits. Many of us will be out trick-or-treating with the tiniest members of our family, while others will be handing out candy (like myself!) or attending a spooktacular party with friends.

I decided to do my own version of Drunk J.Crew and thought the image above was a perfect candidate for the "Monster Mash" song. I have no doubt most of you will be hearing that song at some point today. ;)

As per usual with the {celebrating with J.Crew?} posts, it might be fun to have a post on what we plan on wearing today. :)

I plan on wearing J.Crew's Piazza Jacket (Item 81751), with a white button down, and a pair of Madewell Skinny Skinny Jeans. Pretty simple outfit made perfect thanks to this sweater jacket in orange. The Piazza Jacket really is the perfect go-to for Halloween. Not only is it gorgeous, it is the perfect layering piece to keep me warm.

What are you planning to wear this Halloween? Will you be trick-or-treating? Are you planning to go "head to toe" J.Crew or parts J.Crew?

J.Crew In Store Only Offer: 25% Off {this weekend only}

"Thanks!" to  many of you, including Melissa@AllThingsSimplified (in this post), who shared the following email & news from J.Crew.

J.Crew is offering 25% off full priced items, plus an additional 40% off (with some stores offering 50% off) final sale items. These offers runs from October 31, 2014 through November 2, 2014. The fine print includes:
*25% discount valid on select items as advertised. 40% discount valid on sale items. Offers valid in J.Crew stores from October 31, 2014, through November 2, 2014. Offers not valid in the 769 Madison Avenue store; Liquor Store or Ludlow Shops; J.Crew Factory stores; at jcrew.com or jcrewfactory.com; or on phone orders. Offers cannot be applied to previous purchases or the purchase of gift cards and cannot be redeemed for cash or used in combination with any other offer. Offers not valid on select men’s suiting or Ludlow shoes; select boys’ suiting; women’s fine jewelry; select women’s denim, jackets and outerwear; select Collection, wedding, Garments for Good or third-party branded merchandise. Present this email at the time of purchase to redeem. Offer valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms of offer are subject to change.
The email includes a bar code for the store associate to scan. (Just click on the image above to print it out.) However, I doubt you will actually need to show this. I think they will automatically apply it for you at the cash register.

Also, I am not sure how this is that different than the current promotion. When I stopped by my local B&M store yesterday, if felt like most full priced items were eligible for an additional 25% off. However, both are great promotions and I am happy to see them! :)

Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? If so, please share!

A Halloween Mystery Sale in J.Crew Factory Stores

"Thanks!" to  many of you, who shared the following email & news from J.Crew.

J.Crew Factory is offering a "mystery sale surprise" for customers starting tomorrow. Unfortunately, this is an in store only sale. Boo! ;) This offer expires Sunday, November 2, 2014.

I have a feeling they will be passing out cards with different additional percent off coupons. Not sure, just a guess.

Plus, Factory stores will be offering up to 50% off everything in store. Definitely worth a visit if you live nearby.

Will you be stopping at a J.Crew Factory store this weekend? If so, please share what the Mystery Sale Surprise is!

Also, please help out by offering your styling advice. Feel free to include links to your blog (where you incorporated that piece) or to Polyvore (where you showcased an outfit with that piece). Thanks in advance! :)

Additional 50% Off Final Sale at J.Crew Stores!

"Thanks!" to choctini (in this post) whol let us know that J.Crew brick & mortar stores are offering an additional 50% of their final sale merchandise.

I stopped by my local B&M and noticed the additional 50% off sale as well. I am going to assume most stores in the U.S. are running it.

This is an amazing deal. Definitely worth a visit to your local B&M to check stuff out.

Is your local store running this offer? Any items you interested in getting? Please share! :)

J.Crew Updates Website with New Arrivals! {whoops! not really}

UPDATE: Looks like I made an error. I thought there were new arrivals because J.Crew updated the catalog section with the new November edition. However, there is no update with new merchandise at JCrew.com. Apologies for the confusion. :(


"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know that J.Crew had an update to its website (click here to view online).

There are some new arrivals for men (click here) & women (click here). {wahoo!} It looks like Crewcuts (click here) has been updated, but not the J.Crew Collection (click here).

The NOVEMBER catalog (click here to view) is finally up. As many JCAs have mentioned, this catalog has been in stores and delivered to customers' homes for awhile now.

As for the new arrivals... I am excited for this roll-out. Finally! There are so many items on my "want-list" this time around. Here are just a few...

The Chunky turtleneck sweater (item B5875; $118.00) is a classic staple. According to the description it is slightly boxy, so I may need to size down to get a better fit. Here's to hoping it is lovely in person as it is in the photos!

I am a sucker for the Crinkle check shirt (item B4821; $88.00). I love navy, checked, button down shirts. But who doesn't, amiright? :)

I really like the Painted stripe sweatshirt (item B7180; $68.00). It just seems so easy to wear.

Don't forget!
J.Crew is offering an additional 25% off select items (marked as so) and an additional 30% off final sale with promotional code STYLETREAT. This offer expires October 31, 2014.

What items are you most excited about and why? Which items are you surprised (or not surprised) to see? Which items did you hope would be included? Were you expecting a bigger roll-out? Also, did you receive the latest catalog? :)
