J.Crew to follow Madewell’s lead with its first Instagram sale
To drive sales of a new pair of pink sunglasses, J.Crew is taking a page out of sister brand Madewell’s playbook.
J.Crew’s first social media presale launches Tuesday, and with it, 50 pairs of the sunglasses will be released a week ahead of the official drop of the September 2016 collection. Through a link exclusively available on Instagram, J.Crew is offering the limited release to followers paying attention to the feed. Today, the retailer will post to Instagram Stories for the first time to tease the sale with photos of the sunglasses and messages to check back for more information. After the Stories teasers run, J.Crew will post an Instagram photo to its account with instructions on how to get one of the 50 pairs, selling for $128, through the photo and link to be shared on Tuesday.
