Lord & Taylor will spread holiday cheer with the launch of an exclusive sweater collection designed by Whoopi Goldberg. The limited-edition capsule collection arrives at Lord & Taylor on November 1st just in time for the holiday shopping season.
Goldberg, who loves the holidays, has a family tradition of donning kitschy or ‘ugly’ holiday sweaters each year. The sweaters incorporate her whimsical, humorous take on the holidays and are crafted with luxe fabrications not commonly seen in a novelty sweater, such as alpaca, wool and cashmere.
“I wanted my love of the holidays to come to life with this ‘ugly’ sweater collection,” stated Goldberg. “There’s no better way to celebrate the season than by wearing or giving an ‘ugly’ holiday sweater and spending time with family and friends, which is really what it’s all about.”
“Lord & Taylor celebrates the holiday season unlike any other retailer – from our iconic windows to the ever-growing gifting shops,” stated Liz Rodbell, President of Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor. “The collection fit seamlessly into our plans for this year’s ‘Happy Christmas’ gifting shop, which will feature a variety of novelty items. We are thrilled to include Whoopi in our holiday traditions; we know it will surprise and delight our customers during this special time of year.“
To celebrate the launch of the Whoopi Goldberg sweater collection, Lord & Taylor‘s Fifth Avenue flagship will dedicate one of its iconic windows to the collection with a special installation. Goldberg will join Lord & Taylor on Tuesday, November 15 to unveil the window for New Yorkers and tourists alike to enjoy through the Thanksgiving holiday.
The eight limited-edition styles will be available for purchase at 37 Lord & Taylor stores as well as on www.lordandtaylor.com; all sweaters retail for $139.
