A Trip to the J. Crew Clearance Center

Hi everyone! Since I'm home for spring break, my mom and I took a trip to the J. Crew Clearance Center in Lynchburg VA. I tried to get pictures of the store, but I only had my phone, forgive the quality!
Now this is not a J. Crew Factory store, the Clearance Store is where the returns and overstocks go for great prices! Most of it is Women's but there is a small Men's section, a Madewell section (they are owned by J. Crew) and a Bridal section. It is in an Industrial Park but it is set up like a store.
They had a really great selection of all Women's clothes, shoes, and some bags and jewelry. There are 2 locations: Lynchburg VA and Arden NC. My mom and I took the 2 hour trip to VA today and we got some incredible deals! 
I have to say there are a lot of flaws on some of the clothes like stains and small rips, just check everything over as you're trying it on. Some of it is in-season clothes, but I feel like most of it is from the past year. They also have warehouse sales, where things are marked down even more!
There is also a "red-line" section where everything is an extra 50% off, I got a few things from that section, including a pair of Minnie pants for $10 and a pajama top for $7.50! 
From what I saw, I think the best markdowns were pants, tees/knits, blazers, and shoes. Some of the tops had great mark downs, but others I have found cheaper on sale at a J. Crew retail store. The jewelry and bag markdowns were still fairly expensive. They also take the 15% off student/teacher discount!
My mom got the Edie bag and a chambray shirt
Thanks to my student discount after the already discounted prices, I got the wool Schoolboy Blazer (I've wanted this for several years) for $51, normally $198. Etta pumps for $60, normally $200. Minnie pants in black for $10 and navy for $17, normally $110. And I wasn't completely sure about the savings for the others!
If you live anywhere within an hour or two of either location, or as a detour on a road trip, it's definitely worth the trip!
Thanks for reading!
