“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.”
“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

Can you believe it’s been 3 years since the doors opened to Lotus at The Met? To celebrate this momentous occasion, the ladies of Lotus would like to invite all friends, fam and fans to come out and celebrate on Thursday, December 5th from 6-9pm! With champagne flowin’, DJ bumpin’, prizes givin’, and models walkin’ it’s sure to be a FAB night you won’t wanna miss!!!
Lotus first opened its doors in 2004 in the trendy neighborhood of Plaza Midwood in Charlotte, North Carolina. The idea for lotus was started by Effie Loukas while on an inspirational buying trip. She realized that great fashion was not about cost, but more about a unique look. From that concept, lotus was born… a store where style is not based on a price tag, rather looking and feeling fabulous! In 2010 Effie partnered with fashion-lover Jackie Rodney and opened a new store at the Metropolitan shopping plaza. Since its beginning, lotus has been consistently voted as one of Charlotte’s best boutiques.
The name lotus is derived from the beautiful ancient flower that is known for thriving and blossoming, regardless of its surroundings. At lotus women come in to shop, and leave glowing with confidence no matter where they come from or where they are going. The experience is not just about finding a chic outfit, it’s about sipping champagne, laughing with friends and letting your beauty blossom.
