Marshall Field's Windows Prepping For Big Holiday Reveal
The window you see above is on the Randolph Street side. The one below is on the State Street side. Both of them are currently dark with the message: Pardon our appearance. Something magical is in store. And...being good Chicagoans, we all know what that is: the big reveal of the Marshall Field's Christmas windows. The one below shows the 'Santa' theme that they've used in year's past and...unfortunately, doesn't include Uncle Mistletoe.
I posted photos of the windows being prepped last year - just in early November 2016. Here's the photos. And here's a photo from the morning of November 9th, 2015 - the very day they opened for public viewing. Here's photos of the 'coming soon' windows in 2014.
Let's all hope they don't make the mistake they made back in 2015 when we got NYC's 'sloppy seconds' where they re-used Macy's NYC window display. Shame.
What else is a shame? That they don't really use Uncle Mistletoe anymore. C'mon Macy's. Give me a windows display this year with Uncle Mistletoe. Please?!?!
