It's a grey day here in Edinburgh so we thought you might like cheered up with a preview of the spring summer colour palette for 2016.  With 10 key shades to choose from there is something for everyone to look forward to and no excuse not to look good!


pantone shades 2016

For those that prefer brights: buttercup yellow , fiesta red, green flash and snorkel blue are where it is at. We already have pieces in snorkel blue in  store from both Sandwich Clothing and Lily & Me.  We just love the Sandwich sporty sweatshirt dress - very on trend.

Green flash is a particular favourite of Lesley's - think of the Vivaldi logo which is now already 12 years old.  N&Willow have both green flash and fiesta red in their collections from zip cardis to linen dresses - we just can't wait till they arrive.



For softer shades, limpet shell, peach echo and rose quartz shades have already started to arrive from brands such as B Young and Adini in both pattern and print, like this pretty Adini Tunic.


As for neutrals - for those that prefer grey - we have lilac grey which was seen recently on Naomi Watts on the red carpet or for those who prefer brown tones you can't go wrong with iced coffee.

All in all we think you will agree there is something for everyone.  All we need now is a little sunshine.
