Jeremy's Finds--JCrew Shoes

After hearing many legends of JCrew shoes at TJMaxx over the last week, I had a hunch that I might find some stock at Jeremy's. How do I describe Jeremy's? Its like a designer overstock store, and the one near me in the Bay Area has just a CRAZY amount of JCrew merch. When I first went in there I almost hyperventilated with how much stuff was there. Since then, I have taught myself to look for only things I really wanted but missed. Sometimes the stuff is a floor model, so you have to look carefully.

With this in mind, I headed to the shoe section--sure enough, BOONDOGGLE. They had Lulus, Juliets, Alessia, a few Penelopes, botos, ah ah AH! Calm, Liz. Any way, I tried on about 5 pairs, and here is the verdict:
  • Blush Pointy Pumps--too much toe cleavage and pinchy
  • Cloud Lulus Peeptoes--too much like my silver metallic pumps
  • Burnt Sienna Lulu Peeptoes--wasn't hooked
  • Bronze Driving Mocs--one of the feet felt tight, wasn't sure
  • Gunmetal Lulu Flats--The bow was almost a brown satin--loved these
  • Juliet Pump in Blanched Almond--shown above, liked! I feel like this is a new kind of shoe for me so an adventure
The catch--these shoes were $59 plus a 20% off special today, not $20 like at TJMaxx. But I felt like I would have bought these for $50 online if I had found such a deal.

If anyone is really desperate for a JCrew show that I can look for for you, and you are interested at the $50 range, please let me know, I am MORE than happy to be a personal shopper for readers!

A few more pics, and to show the prices and how Jeremy's shoes look.


  1. Ooooo, I am envious!! Those Lulus look really cute - and great price!

  2. How exciting. I am definitely looking for the following all in size 9.5: Lulu heels (any color other than yellow and metalic); Lulu flats (any color); Juliet midheels(any color + serengeti); Trixies or other patterned pumps. Please email me with terms and conditions at laleh000@yahoo.com.


  3. that's remarkable! I'm so jealous. If you see the juliets in 10-11 please let me know.
    If it's easier to just text me once you're there, just email me & I'll give you my number. TIA!

  4. Were the Dark Cloud Lulus size 7?? If so, I would love them! If you see them and don't mind, please pick them up for me, I will pay all expenses!



  5. You are so lucky! Any Lulu heels in size 10 would be appreciated.

  6. Aw man, I was up in the bay this weekend, didnt think of Jeremys!

    If you go again, lemme know if you find any flats in pink/dusty rose/blush in 7.5 or any flats for that matter.

  8. Oooo! Great find! Are there any more of those flats in 8.5???

  10. Wow Liz, amazing finds!! My holy grail shoe is the Alessia in spearmint. If you found that in a 7 I would be eternally grateful.
