New York—Tiffany & Co. took its April Fool’s Day joke and ran with it.   On April 1, the jewelry giant jokingly introduced a new house color via Instagram, swapping its iconic Tiffany blue for a bright yellow.

It turned its prank into reality in late May via a new marketing campaign, temporarily remodeling its Rodeo Drive location in California with yellow furniture, fixtures, and yellow jewelry boxes and shopping bags.    There was a “Yellow Diamond Café” within the store, serving on-brand treats like ginger turmeric lattes, lemon soda and honeycomb ice cream, as reported by WWD.   WATCH: Walk Through The Pop-Up Offering a novel experience is one way retailers can entice customers back into stores as COVID-19 restrictions ease, Tiffany showed.    Visitors to the pop-up could walk through an exhibit of yellow diamonds, including the famous 128.54-carat Tiffany Diamond.   New owner LVMH has been looking to revamp the storied jewelry brand, drawing in younger customers via new marketing tactics.   Just as a certain variety of pink has earned the moniker “millennial pink,” yellow is a color commonly associated with Gen-Z. Pantone even recently named its lemon-yellow hue, called “Illuminating,” one of the 2021 colors of the year.   Tiffany is expected to roll out the concept to other locations but has not announced the next pop-up location.
