An Ode to Lord & Taylor

How do I love thee, Lord & Taylor on Highridge? Let me count the ways.

I love thee for having competent sales staff who are polite
I love thy selection of dresses in which I thoroughly delight
I love thee for honoring coupons that I forgot to bring
I love thee for having just the right thing (summer or spring)

I love thee for keeping your aisles clean and neat
I love thee for making my wardrobe more complete
I love thy makeup counters, thy handbags, thy coats
I love so many pretty things the mannequins promote

I love my brand new clothes and regard them with affection
I love that my credit card has ne'er seen your rejection
I love that I'll think of jewels in the display
Until I return again when the cost I can defray

I don't go to L&T for hedges or cantilevering, but knock yourself out there James.
