Pantone's Color of the Year...Pink?

For those of you not in the know, Pantone is THE color system that all designers use. This isn't just for print media- this color system influences fashion, home decor, paints...the list goes on. Each year Pantone selects an "it" color and this year, it's...

The other colors are part of Pantone's Spring Fashion report.
I can't say that I love it-I'm not a super pink girly girl, but I do love what Pantone says about the color:

"... Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.
“In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”
Would you use these colors? What do you think of the color combinations up above? I'm 110% positive we'll see these colors translate into invitation design (heck- we've already got a "Honeysuckle" invitation, we've just called it Morganite), making for some interesting design.
