The New York Daily News is reporting that traffic on JCrew.com increase by 64% this week after Michelle Obama revealed on “The Tonight Show” that the outfit she was wearing had been ordered from the Web site.

"You can get some good stuff online," Obama reportedly told host Jay Leno.

The skirt worn on the show by Obama was soon the most-viewed item on JCrew.com and a New York City outpost of the retailer was pulling the cardigan she sported off the racks and putting them on hold for customers.
