More here about The Emerald City at Harrods

http://www.harrods.com/HarrodsStore/cam ... meraldcity

This year Harrods joins with Great Ormond Street Hospital for its annual Christmas charity appeal and pledges to raise £300,000 to fund three new bedrooms in the kidney unit. To mark the event, at 5.00pm on 29th October 2009 Harrods was magically transformed into The Emerald City.

This Christmas Harrods is celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the iconic film classic The Wizard of Oz. Dorothy and her friends will come alive creating magic throughout Knightsbridge with a Wizard of Oz Christmas Parade and special events within the store including a ruby slipper boudoir.

To launch the Wizard of Oz season Harrods has been transformed into the Emerald City with all bulbs of the famous façade turning a glittering green. Customers are invited to lend a hand and whilst doing so support Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity, making the holidays special for the less fortunate.

Just so everyone has a heads up. I called Harrods last week looking for a pair, and THEY ARE SOLD OUT!

However the girl told me that due to popular demand they will be made available again by the end of this month. If you want a pair you are best to get your name in now to reserve a pair from the new order. :) That's what I did.

Thanks for telling us Conor!! I am still in two minds whether to get a pair or not since I have my own replicas...they are a nice souvenier from Harrods to commemorate the anniversary, but I don't really need them!

Yep, Harrods will happily take a payment from you on the phone and then they'll post the shoes to you, even if your outside the UK. :)
