It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Limerick thanks to an inventive idea by leading stylist and fashion icon, Celia Holman Lee to encourage the city’s fashion retailers to decorate their windows in hopes of winning ‘Limerick’s Festive Window Display 2015’.

The shop windows were assessed by a panel of adjudicators, which included Celia Holman Lee, Anne Melinn (head of Fashion Department at Limerick School of Art & Design), Olivia O’Sullivan (The Limerick Post), Aine Fitzgerald (The Limerick Leader) and Fergal Deegan (Limerick’s Live 95FM).

Celia Holman Lee and Mary Hayes, economic development officer with Limerick City and County Council, presented the Tippe Canoe, Thomas Street, and No: 15 Le Maison de Curio  the awards for ‘Most Festive Window Display’ and ‘Most Creative Window Display’ respectively. The two winning retailers received handcrafted pieces by ceramicist Clare Jordan of Limerick Craft Hub.

Commenting on the competition, Celia Holman Lee paid tribute to participants for helping to create “a wonderful Christmas spirit” throughout the city centre. The initiative forms part of ‘Celebrating Christmas in Limerick – the City of Fashion’ which kick-starts a wide range of events such as ‘Limerick on Ice’ at Arthur’s Quay Park from late November, ‘Enchanted by Franc, a Medieval Christmas Experience at King John’s Castle’ in December, and the Christmas Racing Festival at Limerick Racecourse, to name just a few.

Meanwhile, Limerick City and County Council is showing its festive spirit by helping local retailers and community groups to promote their Christmas events and promotions on the Christmas in Limerick website ( free of charge.
