Pantone has spoken and the color for 2017 is…Greenery. I admit, I was reluctant to get excited by this burst of bright green, but it has definitely grown on me. Especially on gloomy, winter days where I long for the freshness of spring. As our boutiques start clearing out their shelves and racks of winter merch, look for pops of green to start showing up. Here are some items you can find now to placate your pea-green envy.
1. Bright Pastel Pashima
Kick off spring with a brand new scarf from lou lou! These breezy pastel colors go with a range of colors, complementing light shades and adding fetching contrast to darks. They’re excellent for formal situations like job interviews where you want to add just a dash of your own personality into the formalities.
Available at lou lou and loulouboutiques.com, $18
2. Terry Potholder in cactus
These 100% cotton terry potholders are the best of the terry products we found. They received cuisinette approval for their thickness, color variety, and a clever pocket that transforms them into a mitt of sorts. They are generously sized at 8 inches by 9 inches, and wash and dry beautifully. A bargain for this quality fabric..
