After being down most of the day yesterday, J.Crew and Madewell’s websites are offering a spectacular apology today — at J.Crew, sale is an extra 50% off with code THEBEST! And at Madewell, sale is an extra 30% off with code BIGSALE! J.Crew’s promo is today only.
This is the beginning of the markdown season and it’s just the kind of sale I love to see. As expected, after being nearly barren of merchandise just before Christmas both websites have restocked nicely.
Inside, some wonderful website markdown picks…
1 | The Sadie Flats in Suede (now $80 + 50% off) just hit sale and are as comfy as can be.
2 | The Suede Lace-Up Flats (now $130 + 50% off) got a restock and are available in more sizes and colors than before Christmas (as of this writing anyway!).
3 | Although it won’t give you much in the way of coverage, the Velvet Slipdress (now $100 + 30% off) will give you a very cute look starter that can easily be layered (try a big ol cardigan or a slim-fit wool coat over it).
4 | If comfort is what you’re looking for, the Lace-Up Sweater Dress (now $100 + 30% off) has it in spades, in two neutral colors.
5 | Silk Lowlight Lace-Inset Midi Dress (now $138 + 30% off), come to Mama!!
6 | Tend to feel chilly in the winter? The Excursion Quilted Vest in Flannel (now $100 + 50% off) will be right up your alley.
7 | I saw another customer trying on the Edie Top in Stewart Plaid (now $70 + 50% off) and I have to admit it’s pretty darn cute!
8 | The Lace Peplum Top (now $60 + 50% off) looks cute under blazers, over pencil skirts or jeans, with just about anything really.
9 | My beloved Arrowstack Necklace (now $45 + 30% off) is now more easy to grab than ever.
10 | Interested in trying out the velvet trend? The 9″ High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Velvet (now $90 + 30% off) are one of my favorites for their higher rise, ease through the thighs and good fit down the legs.
11 | The weekend-ready Bohème Popover Shirt in Hayden Plaid (now $40 + 30% off) is a weekend favorite of mine. Do size down (I took a small!) as it runs huge, even taking its oversized styling into consideration.
12 | Although it’s currently out of season, the Denim Button-Front Skirt in Pure White (now $70 + 30% off) is a steal, and I expect to see a ton of white around come Spring. I have it in my usual size 30.
13 | I am so excited that the Dulci Suede Kitten Heels (now $180 + 50% off) are included in this fantastic promo!
14 | My jaw dropped when I saw that the Italian Cashmere Shell with Feathers (now $250 + 50% off) is also included in the promo.
15 | Hunting for a classic cardigan? Look no further than the Italian Cashmere Cardigan Sweater (now $140-$160 + 50% off).
16 | Another fabulous sweater, especially now at such a discount, is the Italian Cashmere Classic V-neck Sweater (now $150 + 50% off).
In case that’s not enough, J.Crew Factory is offering an extra 40% off clearance with the code SHOPCREW. I’m a big fan of my Olive Suede Pumps (now $80-$90 + 40% off) and the Cotton-Wool Teddie Sweater (now $20-$30 + 40% off), which is marked down in select colors.
There are also great sales going on at Anthropologie (details here), Free People (details here) and Banana Republic (which is now 50% off sale, and not 60% like yesterday, but picks here) just to name a few! It’s the most wonderful time of the shopping year to be sure. Have you been shopping these sales too?
