I know J.Crew's No. 2 Pencil Skirt in citron has been a spring rollout pick for many of you, and it was my number one (No.2? Hardee-har-har) pick as well. I ordered it over the phone (it wasn't adding to the cart for a while online), and used rewards $ for it.
As you might have seen/heard, it's definitely not a lemony yellow, as it seems to show on most computers. Annoying, but I guess I knew it wouldn't be quite a lemon yellow with the citron name. Their citron in the past has been more neon-y, heading towards lime. This one is as well. I personally love the color, and think it's still very bright and cheery and spring/summer-like. (Though I would have also loved a more lemony color) Easily paired with navy, love it with pink, goes with other citron/olive shades from past JC seasons (like the Lana top below). Will also be great in the fall paired with olives. Hooray, love it! So definitely a keeper for me!
The weight is nice, as the double-serge skirts have been in the past. It will tend toward wrinkling a bit, as you can even see in these pics, and I don't mind that too much. If you're sitting at a computer.desk all day, that might be annoying for you.
I ordered a 4, b/c I didn't want it to be skin tight. I feel like it fits nicely, but think I will still try on the 2, now that it's in stores. At $98, it should fit very perfectly, no? I think b/c of the color, which won't be for everyone, this will perhaps hit sale. It also sounds like several people picked up a similar color at the factory store last year.
Here are some pictures:
You can also see it on the lovely Jenni in her review here.

What do you think? Will this be a purchase for you? Wait for sale?
