J. Crew's current promotion should help put a bit of spring into your step. Right now, you can save an extra 50% off final sale items or an extra 40% off non-final sale items. Just use the code SHOPNOW at checkout.
Sometimes we find J. Crew can be hard to shop but some items are attractive basics. This Resin coated cotton twill jacket is perfect for April showers, especially for $50 from almost $200. A collection bonded denim coat is $380 from almost $800 and Italian satin belted shorts are $48 from $168.
The deals for kids are even better. Here's one of Crew Cuts signature girls sweatshirt with a satin ruffle hem for $12 from $62 and skirt with hearts is $26 from $55.
It might seem counterintuitive but when confronted with a sale like this we prefer to spend an extra 10% and have the luxury of returns. That is, unless you're sure of what you're buying. Hurry, this sale ends midnight on Tuesday. (Good thing is that you always know there will be another soon.)
