Christmas at Ralph Lauren

Ralph’s Coffee in the Ralph Lauren ladies mansion at 72nd Street and Madison Avenue has become the Covid clubhouse for the Upper East Side. Except that there is no actual clubhouse since all the seating is safely located outside. I met my friend Samantha at Ralph’s for our first in person catch up since June in Sag Harbor and afterward, I took a tour of both Ralph Lauren mansions to see the Christmas decorations. They are the most magical in the city and luckily they didn’t disappoint this year since we need some magic more than ever. I had a lot of people tell me that they were excited to see my photos on Instagram since they won’t be able to travel to New York this holiday season. I thought I would share them here as well in case you are also missing the city. This is not a sponsored post. Just something to help get you into the spirit of the season.

The Ralph Lauren Bears are a cute addition to the cups this season.

There is no indoor seating right now and I can’t wait until we can meet up inside again.

The front display was inspired by horse stables.

This makes me wish I had a chandelier!

Ralph Lauren Home is located on the fourth floor. I always take the elevator here and walk down through each floor.

I’m planning to get caviar for New Year’s Eve at home this year and I think I need this Caviar Set.

The ladies mansion looks so good that it’s easy to forget that it was new construction that opened in 2010.

There was so much traffic on Madison Avenue today that it was impossible to get a good photo of the store without cars.

The men’s store located across the street in the Rhinelander Mansion has construction scaffolding on the facade so I didn’t take a photo of the exterior. There’s a great article “Dream House” about the history and construction of both mansions on the Ralph Lauren website.

I love visiting the men’s store since it feels like an old men’s club and the holiday decorations are classically beautiful.
