For the second year in a row the winner in the “Most Beautiful Window” category is Renee’ James Boutique at 10 E. Eagle Road in Oakmont. Judge Rudy Miller shares her appreciation of the display, "Renee James' window is always attractive, but during the Holidays it really sparkles. The charming display is well lit and I love the red, black, and white color palette. The matching snowflake patterned pillow and stockings help to dress up the window that features pretty red and black holiday outfits." Another perennial winner, Lizelle’s Bridal Boutique at 2112 Darby Road, is awarded second place for the elegant beauty of its display. Judge Gina Ranieri notes, "Lizelle's window represents the many things I love about Christmas - simple beauty and peacefulness."
