That’s alive and strong. The color steps from the limelight New Year’s Eve when Emerald takes over as the “it” color for 2013.
Pantone crowned Emerald, the new must-have hue, bringing back a color not popular since the 1980’s, the company said.
Think Emerald City green. May (my) birthstone green, four-leaf clover green. A bit lighter than spinach, more like steamed broccoli.
Green, like orange, is fine by me. I love it! Many of my clothes are green or orange.
From celebrities to cookware, the color is seeping into the public eye, hoping to convince us to toss all our so-last-year orangey outfits and omelet pans and spend greenbacks on anything and everything green.
Well, I’m not going to listen. I’m keeping my tangerine, pumpkin, carrot and cantaloupe- toned sweaters and shirts; I have quite a bit in apple, asparagus, olive and mint.
But Emerald? Yarn store here I come.
