Saks has given over the 14 storefront windows of its Fifth Avenue flagship to United Airlines to help promote United’s new Polaris business class cabin. (Saks is providing the bedding for United Polaris.)

The windows are designed to give passersby the feeling that they are actually walking through the luxurious Polaris cabin. And just in time for resort season, the mannequins that are in some of the windows are decked out in the latest spring fashions.

The social media firm is killing the feature, which launched last summer, due to a lacking install base, TechCrunch reported.

Report: Wal-Mart CIO to leave

BY Marianne Wilson

Wal-Mart Stores is reportedly losing its top technology executive.

Karenann Terrell will step down as CIO of Wal-Mart on February 24, the Wall Street Journal reported. Terrell has served in the position for nearly five years.

The retailer, which did not say where Terrell is headed, expects to announce new leadership in technology “shortly,” according to the report.

Terrell joined Wal-Mart in 2010 as executive VP of information systems after serving four years as CIO of health-care firm Baxter International Inc. She was promoted to chief information officer in February 2012.

Prior to Baxter, Terrell was CIO of the Chrysler Group and Mercedes-Benz North America. She began her career with General Motors.
