Chartreuse

Definition: Chartreuse

Chartreuse

A half green, half yellow color; it is precisely halfway between green and yellow, so it is 50% green and 50% yellow. It was named because of its resemblance to the green color of one of the French liqueurs called green chartreuse.

DKNY's Fall 2007 collection had an eye-catching satin chartreuse dress (left), which is fun for the holidays.

I'm wearing a chartreuse cardigan at the moment. I really love this colour; never thought it would suit me, but now I want more.
