As many of you know by now, the first ever J.Crew Mercantile store is now open here in Dallas; so we stopped by this past Thursday to check out the Grand Opening Party hosted by the lovely Amy Havins (DallasWardrobe).

The store is located in the ever-evolving Shops at Park Lane, right in front of the new Starbucks. As soon as you walk in, you feel right at [J.Crew] home-- light modern maple shelving, meticulously stacked shirts-- but then you see it... Virtually everything is labeled with a "__% Off" sign! It truly felt like the best of both worlds in the store-- the careful craft and fresh pieces of a standard J.Crew, but the prices of J.Crew Factory. Needless to say, we'll be back soon!
