Getting Close to the End of This Years Color Chart!

Glacier Gray is lovely! Yes, it's more dominant for men than women. It's unobtrusive that contrasts and enhances. It bounces off other shades without taking away from them - and it slips into the background to allow other colors to take center stage. Gray is nature's most perfect neutral. Timeless. Quietly assuring and peacefully relaxing.

Marsala is the Color of the Year

Marsala is a beautiful color on its own but also a wonderful contract to other hues. Bold and daring, it exudes confidence. A little like the wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates warmth and richness with red-brown earthiness. Gorgeous!

They Call it Custard

We are really fond of this mellow and warm tone. Pantone describes it as sweet and sunny, soft and relaxed.  It works back with Classic Blue and reminds us a bit of Toasted Almond.

Tangerine is up next and it's EVERYWHERE! This juicy orange shade is energizing but not jarring to the eye. It's striking enough to stand on its own and adds vitality to a print, too. Fun loving. Bright. Cheerful.

Pretty in Pink?

We're still moving through the annual Pantone Spring color palette and we're loving this years hues. This one is called Strawberry Ice and is suggestive of a cooling and refreshing delicacy yet its warmth as a color is quite appealing. Subtle and charming, it's a "confection color" that emits a flattering and healthy glow. So feminine, flirty and fun.

Classic Blue is another of the 10 colors of Pantene's 2015 Spring Palette. Reliable. This color inspired calm, confidence and harmony. This color is one of the "anchors" to the palette.

The Great Colors Continue!

Lucite Green is what they' call it. It's a soothing green shade. Fresh. Clarifying. Cool and refreshing. It's got a "minty glow". Works well with both classic and scuba blue - and you'll see them all in so many prints this season. We're so excited to watch the store transform over the next weeks and months. We really love this time of year.

Another Color of the Season - Pantone Spring 2015 Looks Great!

"Scuba Blue or Turquoise is another great color this season. It's an invigorating turquoise that conveys a sense of carefree playfulness. Even though this is considered a "cool" shade, the vibrancy of scuba blue adds of splash of excitement to the palette. It offers a feeling of escape as it's reminiscent of a tropical ocean. This stirring and energizing shade takes us off to an exotic paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy!"
