Every December, the oracles of Pantone LLC emerge from their shadowy offices in New Jersey just long enough to declare the next Color of the Year. So as 2012 comes to a close, we say goodbye to Tangerine Tango and hello to Emerald Green. Expect the hue to be plastered on everything from new cars to toaster ovens. Pantone promises that Emerald will "enhance our sense of well-being, balance, and harmony." That's a lot of pressure to put on a color, but Emerald seems up to the task. Lilly Pulitzer has already incorporated the shade into three of its newest prints.
