Wearin' o' the Green
At the end of the rainbow you'll find beautiful handbags.
Faith and bag-orrah! As seen here around town, you don't have to wait for Saint Patrick's Day to sport shamrock green. It's the color of the year for handbags, says Shahid Ullah, owner of the Clutch purse kiosk in The Shops at Prudential Center in Boston. "Women used to think green wasn't versatile," he explains, but now realize that it looks good with both neutral and bright tones. And you don't need the luck of the Irish to find a style you like this spring. Just head for the emerald aisle in any handbag department.
