>> BLIZZARD AT SAKS

If you’re ready to see some snow, head to Saks Fifth Avenue’s window display. “Each snowflake is one of a kind,” said Julio Gomez, director of windows. “Saks believes they are a reflection of the beauty of diversity and being unique — a message we believe is especially important to communicate to our shoppers and window visitors during the holiday season.” The Fifth Avenue flagship this season is basing six windows on the store’s limited-edition children’s book, “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Flake” (at right), which is donating $2 from every sale to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Painted soft winter-white, pale-blue and a shadowy blue, the windows, which will be uncovered Nov. 23, include custom glass sculptures, geometric woodwork, snow drifts and more than 30 pairs of shoes. The entertainment will even move outside, with a snowflake light show choreographed to “Carol of the Bells” projected against the building’s façade. E.L.
