Pantone's color of the year

I love Pantone's color of the year tradition. This year is it a deep shade of turquoise. I just bought a pair of shoes this color but the onslaught of snow has stopped me from wearing them.

In Pantone's words:
"In many cultures, Turquoise occupies a very special position in the world of color," explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "It is believed to be a protective talisman, a color of deep compassion and healing, and a color of faith and truth, inspired by water and sky. Through years of color word-association studies, we also find that Turquoise represents an escape to many – taking them to a tropical paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy."
