    Greensleeves - Pantone's Color of the Year "Greenery"
    Vintage Inspirations-Spring 2017

    This week, we intend to wear our green on our sleeves, ahem. . . so to speak. Inspired by the budding leaves, vines and grasses of this life-affirming shade, we pay tribute to this year's Pantone Color of the Year, "Greenery" in this Parade.

    Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate. --

    So show us your cheerful "green sleeves" in ranges from the soft, bright green of the official Pantone shade, to bright lime and deeper shades of emerald. All eras and styles of green (or green print) clothing and accessories are welcome -- just in time for the "wearing of the green" on St. Patrick's Day, too!

    *remember for VI you can include archived items! For trade members only*
