About Windy City Lights

Chicago native Jane Marchese-Larsen has been involved in the Holiday lighting business since 1985. Shortly after graduating from Northern Illinois University with a marketing degree, Jane began working for Silvestri Corporation, the original innovator of Italian Mini Lights. She quickly became involved in every aspect of the business, from design and showroom set up to sales management. Jane later worked as an outside sales representative for Bethlehem Lights and Roman Inc. Since the Christmas Season was always Jane’s favorite holiday, it was easy for her to develop a passion for selling Christmas lighting, artificial foliage and related products for commercial decorators. This passion led her to start of Windy City Lights in 2006.

Since first establishing Windy City Lights Jane has built an extensive client base in the Chicago area. She has worked with municipalities, zoos, botanical gardens, hotels, interior and exterior landscape companies as well as commercial decorators. In order to better serve those clients, Windy City Lights has an easily accessible warehouse in West Chicago Illinois. We have just added a showroom which displays all our current Christmas product.  This gives our customers the convenient and cost effective option of PICKING UP product the same day it is ordered instead of shipping it. In 2009, Windy City Lights added energy-efficient LED lighting to its product line for customers who are looking to “go green.” Our focus is on offering high quality commercial merchandise, building relationships through fair pricing and making sure the customer is always happy!
