As luck would have it, Pantone’s Color of the Year just happens to co-inside with Valentine’s Day. Marsala, the shade of the season, is a deep red, making it a go-to for the heart holiday. I stopped in at Sawgrass Mills and stocked up on all sorts of V-Day essentials in the shade.

What would Valentine’s Day be without chocolate? My first stop was Godiva for delish cherry cordials wrapped in Marsala-esque packaging. And at $10, it was a total steal.

Kisses and Febrauary 14 go together like Cupid and arrows, so I stopped in at BareMinerals for the Pretty Amazing deep red lip shade and coordinating liner. While I was there, I found this adorable Pretty Chic makeup kit that just happened to come in a Valentine’s Day-themed bag that’s also Marsala-hued. All in all, I spent just over $50 for lipstick, liner, eyeshadow, mascara and blush. Deal of the century.

Since flirty and February go hand-in-hand, I couldn’t resist this Kate Spade clutch. It’s accent colors make all my Marsala-shaded scores just pop. I’m so obsessed with my last clutch from the store, and at 40 percent off, I couldn’t say no.

Last but not least, it’s the sexiest day of the year, so I dropped into Calvin Klein, the largest one in the state, by the way, and found this perfectly hued lingerie for just $50.

I also managed to score a stellar Marsala dress from Barney’s New York Outlet that I’ll be posting sooner than later.

Ready or not, February 14, here I come.
