It started with some YouTube videos. And just a few years later Austin Mahone is a star. With millions of followers on social media, Mahone now has a very loyal fan base that stretches across the globe. And yes, they're known as Mahomies.

Mahone brought that positive attitude to Lord & Taylor Thursday to reveal new windows celebrating some classic Holiday traditions. First though, Mahone had to warm up.
Austin told me he will be releasing some free music online very soon, and, of course, you can enjoy the Lord & Taylor holiday windows throughout the season.
