J.Crew: New Promo-Priced Items & Markdowns Plus an Extra 30% Off on All Purchases - HOLIDAY!!!

J.Crew is offering an Extra 30% Off your Purchase with code HOLIDAY at checkout until 12.1.13 (this includes Regular, Promo-Priced, & Sale Items). They have also done a 'switch-up' on the Promo-priced items this week...new items have been marked to promo-price, while others have gone back to regular-price or marked down to sale price.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Promo-priced items, they are select Regular-price pieces that J.Crew marks down to a 'Promotional Price' for a short amount of time. These items are eligible for any extra % off sale or full-price promotions that may occur at any time. The Promo-priced items are also eligible for the Educator and Student Discounts, so if you are a teacher or student you can receive an additional 15% off on them, as well.

If an item is on promo or sale online, but not in the store, ask the sales associate if they will match the online price, and apply any extra % off that may be happening at that time. You can also ask to place a 'Blue Martini' (formerly Red Phone) order for an online promo-priced or sale item and have any extra % off taking place in the store applied to it, as well.

The promo-prices are usually in effect for a week or two (sometimes longer), then they either go back up to full-price or move on into Holiday Sale. I have noted the majority of the Women's Promo-priced items currently available on the J.Crew website, as well as the items that have been marked down.

A Day of Thanksgiving...


"Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds." ~Theodore Roosevelt

"We give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way." ~Author Unknown

"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures." ~Thornton Wilder

"Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action." ~W.J. Cameron

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." ~Melody Beattie

I wish you all an absolutely beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving Day! :)

Inspiration: Thankfulness


Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire, If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary
Because it means you've made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings."
