A potential customer wants to install a lamppost. There is a receptacle in the middle of the front yard fed from a timer for holiday lighting. Is there any reason not to pick up power from the receptacle to feed a lamppost wit integral photocell?
There would be no switch other than the timer.

Don't see why not you can do what you said. The "timer" will control the recept and the post light. There is no requirement (resi) that I am aware of that a "switch" has to be in-line. I would make sure the recept is GFI with a "bubble cover ('02 NEC, since you have to touch it. Make sure the CB is marked, afavorite of some inspectors.
