J.Crew Updates Website with New Arrivals!

"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 February catalog (click here to view) is still up. However, the latest MARCH catalog is not. As mentioned by several JCAs, J.Crew posted several images of the newest catalog over at Pinterest (click here to view).

Even better! It looks like J.Crew is offering free shipping on all orders for today. Plus, they are still running 20% off everything for cardmembers (no min! both online and in stores!) with promo code CARDSONLY. This offer expires March 4, 2014. The fine print includes:
*Offer valid on purchases made using a J.Crew Credit Card or in conjunction with the opening of a new J.Crew Credit Card in J.Crew stores and at from February 26, 2014, 12:01am ET through March 4, 2014, 11:59pm ET. Offer not valid in Liquor Store or Ludlow Shops; in 769 Madison Avenue, Canadian or J.Crew Factory stores; at; or on phone orders. Offer cannot be applied to previous purchases or the purchase of gift cards and cannot be redeemed for cash or combined with any other offer. Offer not valid on babies' merchandise, men's Ludlow suiting and footwear, Garments for Good merchandise or on select Collection items and third-party branded merchandise. In-store discount automatically taken at the register. To redeem online, enter code CARDSONLY in the promo code box at checkout. Limit one promotional code per order. Offer valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms of offer are subject to change. Subject to credit approval.
After checking the new arrivals, here are my top three picks:

*Schoolboy blazer in tipped linen (item A2560: $185.00) looks just like last year's version except the white trim is thicker. I love the style and look, so I am happy that it will be sticking around this year. Plus, I am happy that I got the original version on super sale! :)

*Grecian dress (item A3771; $98.00) is a nice throwback to what J.Crew use to offer back in 2004-2009. These types of dresses are great because: (1) the fabric is super comfortable, (2) it is versatile. Depending on how you wear it, it looks casual enough to wear to the beach or dressy enough to wear out to dinner.

*Cleo fabric loafers (item A1839; $160.00) just makes me smile when I see them. What a fun slipper to wear! Preppy and casual at the same time.

With my top three picks in mind... I have to say that I am kind of "meh" with the overall March roll-out. In all fairness, J.Crew's Spring Collection is usually not my favorite season.

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? :)
