A couple of weeks ago I placed a rather large order at J. Crew because of their unbelievable extra 50% off winter clearance items. I mostly picked up sweaters that ended up all being around $20-$30 a piece, including this sequined fair isle sweater. Unfortunately for me, J. Crew now seems to be sending each item from your order in its own separate package. (I suppose because they are shipped from different locations.) So last Wednesday I had five packages at my door awaiting me when I got home for work. This was enough to give my husband a mild heart attack!
I'm not sure where I read this, but prior to Christmas I read an article saying that retailers were heavily discounting sweaters and coats because of the mild winter this season. Even though some fairly sizable storms have hit the east coast, it seems like these winter items are still being deeply discounted, because, despite the frigid temps and blizzards, retailers are still plowing through the season and making way for spring styles. Here in Los Angles, it's obviously much more mild weather wise than back east and I probably really don't need any more sweaters, but I love cold weather sales and bargains. How I could I resist?
