Here is my best explanation:

'dress' is the definition.
(robing is a kind of dressing)

'york lifted up' is the wordplay.
'york' becomes 'ebor' (abbreviation for Eboracum, Latin name for York).
'lifted up' says the letters should be written backwards.
'ebor' backwards is 'ROBE'.

'in' acts as a link.
