While the rest of the world is still deciding whether to serve roasted Brussels sprouts or green bean casserole for Thanksgiving, Lord & Taylor has gone ahead and rolled out its holiday windows. This year's theme is (officially) "a journey through the imagination, exploring the whimsical interiors of an enchanted mansion," and (unofficially) animals wearing clothes. There are mice in scarves and jaunty caps, cardinals in sunglasses and vests, and oil paintings of dogs in Elizabethan ruffs—as well as a window devoted to butterflies and fairies trapped in color-changing glass domes.
