Lord & Taylor's Christmas Windows On-Line!

For those of you who can't get to NYC this season (or who don't want to wait in line in the cold and snow to view), you can see Lord & Taylor's Christmas windows on-line:

Go to http://www.lordandtaylor.com
On the bottom of the screen click on "about us"
Click on "Holiday Windows"
You can then view each window individually
If your pc has flash media - you can also then click on "view video of this window" to see/hear the animation

Thank you. Everybody has clothes and few concentrate on spirit.

Thank you Cicerone, the windows scenes are delightful! They are quite a work of art.

johnthedorf -

I think you're operating under a misapprehnsion.

The reason everyone goes to look at the NYC major department store windows at Christmas, sometimes waiting on line for 20 for 30 minutes - is not to look at things for sale inside. None of them ever display things on sale. What they show - and have for at least 30 years to my knowledge - are holiday scenes - some incredibly elaborate with moving mannakiins etc.

One year Saks even had a full size sleigh "pulled" along tracks by model horses.

I didn't get johnthedorf's comment either. I never see the major ones with clothes -- they have nothing to do with anything for sale.

But in SanFrancisco years ago I saw the most stunning holiday windows that DID promote items for sale. They were female mannequins in spectacular evening and holiday wear. But the heads on all of them had been replaced with heads of obviously female reindeer complete with lipstick and long eyelashes.

I can't seem to get to them. When I click on About Us all I get is the history and no holiday windows. Oh well.

Sharon, when you see "About Us", don't click on it, but roll your mouse over it and several categories will appear below it. One of those is "Holiday windows". Click on THAT.

Thank you. They are beautiful and I enjoyed them so much.
It brought back wonderful memories. Two years ago I spent Christmas in NYC and I loved all the windows.

What a delight, thank you so much for sharing. I was in London at Christmas 20 years ago and enjoyed some of the windows. However I remember Harrods windows displayed evening wear. It was fun to see the gowns but not the same Christmas spirit as the scenes on Oxford street.

NYtraveler/NeoPatrick,
My bad...I wasn't speaking of the Anchors. Sorry if I confused you.

Fantastic!! Thanks for the link!

I looked at the windows in London's Fortnum and Mason's about a week ago. Normally, their windows are also real works of art. This year, they seemed kind of disappointing (they had a 12 days of Christmas theme). Not as good as past years and certainly not as good as Lord and Taylor's.
