The Great (Weekly) Exchange {looking to sell}

This post (of weekly posts) is for individual members who want to swap/sell/share among yourselves. This post is where you can mention your items and outside listing/ auction site (like eBay and eCrater & the corresponding user ID).


Please note: this posting is not for resellers, retailers or businesses. If you are a reseller, retailer, or a business, your comment gets automatically deleted & you will get publicly called out on it. :( So instead of this, simply do not post in the Weekly Exchanges. Thanks in advance for your cooperation! :)


Please note that any transactions are independent of this blog. (Especially since you will be using an outside listing/ auction site like eBay or eCrater.) I have no dealings or interactions with any of the potential communication, listings, or transactions. :) Moreover, please limit comments about items to swap/sell/share to the "Great (Weekly) Exchange" posts. (Refer to "A Quick Note to J.Crew Aficionadas" post.)

Do you have any items you would like to swap/sell/share among yourselves through your outside listing/auction site?

Sidenote: What's up with JCAs writing "sub" or "subscribing" as their comment? It just means they are subscribing to all the comments (which are then automatically sent to their email) in that particular thread. This way they can stay aware of all the comments posted. :)

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!!! :)

Madewell News: Monogramming, Store Events, & New Store!

A big "thanks!" to Ellie from Madewell's PR, who reached out to share information about Madewell's monogramming program, as well as Williamsburg store opening:
Madewell unveiled a new Monogram destination on the site earlier this month, extending the options to belts, key fobs and new fall styles. We will be offering complimentary monogramming through 10/20
This current promotion is mentioned in last month's "Free Monogramming at Madewell {limited time!}" post as well. But wait, there is more!
The Monogram machine is touring New York (and the surrounding area) for live monogramming events. These events are open to the public.

Lastly, the following is about a new Madewell store opening in Williamsburg, New York City (located on 126 North Sixth Street):
Williamsburg Store Opening- Madewell is opening its first BK store on 10/29 with an event that is open to the public!
A lot of exciting news and events going on at Madewell lately! I am also loving the monogramming on the spot events at various stores. This way customers don't have to wait an additional week to get their item.


I did end up getting a Transport Tote monogrammed in my initials during this current promotion. (I got the Black tote with English Saddle handles, with gold foil initials if you were curious.) I have to say it is gorgeous! It truly elevates the classic bag to something special and unique. I am really pleased with it. Now if only it would stop raining where I live so I can use it more! ;)

Have you taken advantage of the free monogramming at Madewell? Any events at Madewell you plan to attend? Please share! :)

Please share your J.Crew item (either that you own or are thinking about getting) that you would love help creating an outfit with.

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! :)

J.Crew Factory: 40-50% Off Outerwear & Accessories (plus 30% off clearance!)

"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know the following news from this morning.

J.Crew is offering customers 40-50% off select full price outerwear styles and accessories. No code necessary as it is automatically applied.

Plus they are offering an additional 30% off clearance items using promo code YAY30. This offer expires October 19, 2014. The fine print includes:

**30% discount valid on the purchase of clearance items at jcrewfactory.com from October 15, 2014, 12:01am ET through October 19, 2014, 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. To redeem, enter code YAY30 in the promo code box at checkout. Limit one promotional code per order. Valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms of offer are subject to change. Final sale items cannot be returned or exchanged.
When it comes to the outerwear promo, the one I think the Factory Ruffle-Collar Dress Coat ($228.00; item B4106) is beautiful. It reminded a lot of JCAs of both J.Crew's Bella and Sybil Coats. This is high praise which I hope the Factory version lives up to. However it is marked at the same price of $136.50, as it was during the "early access" new arrival promotion last week.


Also, there are a few goodies that are on sale in the clearance section right now...

My top clearance pick? J.Crew Factory's Factory gallop sweatshirt (item A8743; $58.00) is now on sale for $28.99 before the additional 30% off. A great time to buy if you were thinking of buying one!

Did you check out J.Crew today? Were you able to snag any amazing deals? If so, please share! :)
