tangerine dream – pantone’s color of the year at Bluefly

[ 0 ] July 13, 2012 |

Each year, The Pantone Color Institute – world-recognized experts on all things hue and tone – select a new shade as the one to watch. For 2012, the Color of the Year is Tangerine Tango, although I think we’re all forgiven if we call it orange.

To celebrate this Coronation of Color, the FS bloggers have each selected an item in (or around) the special shade and we present them here. Remember that we’re currently offering an exclusive coupon for 24% off your first purchase at Bluefly, so get with the program and add some Tangerine to your palette! Note: coupon expires 7/31/2012.
