The show, featuring styles for women and children, begins at 8:30 a.m. in the children’s department.

Festival of Trees is a real-time and online silent auction of tabletop artificial trees exquisitely decorated by renowned interior, floral and landscape designers, businesses, retailers, nonprofits and community organizations.
