J.Crew Factory Store

I only know two things about Lynchburg. 1) It's the hometown of my friend's ex-boyfriend, and 2) it's the home of J.Crew.  Only one of those things means anything to my life.

When we stopped there en route to Charlottesville, I mentioned that we should stop and see if there was an outlet or factory store. My husband suggested that I look up directions and we stop on the way back.

Clearly, I made a point of looking it up as soon as we got to the hotel. I found THIS BLOG POST and decided it was a must-do. The last couple times I have been to the J.Crew outlets, I have been very disappointed, so this seemed like a better option. The clothes at the J.Crew factory store are returns and slightly irregular. I know that women are BIG returners (myself included) so I figured there would be quite a good selection.

I plugged in the address to my iPhone: 25 Millrace Drive, and arrived at an industrial park that included the star of the show...

The store doesn't look like much until you start to browse the racks. I could not believe the amount of stunning cashmere sweaters. Cashmere is expensive and rarely goes on sale, so this was a real treat. 

The store was well organized by size, but there was rarely two of the same item. I had to really look through the racks to find stuff, but considering the price and selection, it was worth it.



So, did I end of getting anything? Of course. It was too good to pass up.

The prices were pretty incredible. I got all these goodies for $165.00! It's going to make it difficult to buy J.Crew full price again. The reason I'm sharing is so that I can spread the word about this gem in Lynchburg. If you are ANYWHERE near the area, I highly recommend you head over there. The men's selection was not great, but the women's department had shoes, jewelry, and purses. They also have a store a couple miles away that has Madewell and CrewCuts (J.Crew children's line). 

Favorite place to score a bargain? I have purchased a couple things on ebay and I love Nordstroms Rack.
