Emerald, the 2013 Color of the Year, is “Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony,” says www.pantone.com

Funny story–I bought my emerald green dress at The Fashion Barn in Columbus, Mississippi in fall of 2012 for some holiday events…Well, I guess that wasn’t a funny story…Who would have thought my darling emerald green dress would be Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year! Hmm…did I mysteriously start this trend? I guess we will never know….this reminds me of the hundreds of times I tried to find out how many licks it took to get to the center of those Tootsie Roll Pops…I guess we will never know that either…Whatever was I talking about…? Oh, yes!  My emerald dress.

When I was invited to attend the Shamrocking and Shopping down the Emerald Aisles at the Shops of Grand River in Leeds, Alabama [March 15-17], I knew exactly what I was going to wear-my extraordinary emerald green dress! Oh, it was the perfect St. Patty’s Day celebration frock!

The Shamrocking and Shopping event featured wonderful family activities to bring the “Luck of the Irish” to everyone celebrating the St. Patty’s Day Weekend! To see more of this event, check out the video here!
