Anyway, enjoy your new fall fleece! I guess it's the purple component, that makes it appropriate for fall, rather than a spring/summer color?
Most of my fall fleeces are Cradle Pink, which is much paler. Also, Fairy Tale has historically been a spring/summer staple with my favorite brand and still has a slight purple tone, just not as much as Ballerina.

I'm Southern and loathe bright colors. In fact, I mostly wear black, dark blues & greens, browns. I don't buy yellow, orange, pink, or white clothes.

Southern tends to be tropical. Tropical tends to be colorful.
Also, more AA women live in the south, and they look awesome in warm bright colors.

I live in Florida so I tend towards the cooler colors during our long, hot summers. I wear a lot of blue, turquoise, white, etc.

Come November I wear a lot of black, gray, red and navy but if it's a hot day I'll wear my usual clothes. We don't have a noticeable change of seasons so many people wear the same clothes all year but might add a sweater or closed shoes to their outfit. I brought one wool coat down with me from up north. I think I've worn it three times in the last 20 years.

Here in Arizona all the stores seem to be selling sweaters, hoodies, and pullover fleeces. We are at the mercy of what the fashion companies give us. Still, we do have days where it gets cold enough to wear them (particularly early in the morning), so I do have my set of fleeces.

Note that some exceptions to the rules of seasonal clothes are off-price retailers such as Ross and T.J. Maxx, which will generally keep a year-round supply of clothes that are more appropriate for the climate. Also, in Florida, there is the department store known as Bealls, which also generally has a year-round supply of warm weather clothes and usually won't release the sweaters and fleeces until late in the season.

I just got the Ballerina fleece, the color shown on Kohls.com was way off. It actually looks slightly less purplish than Fairy Tale, but not nearly as peachy as Candy Pink (closer to Fairy Tale than Candy Pink). I think it would be a good match for my Fairy Tale polos.

Looks like the color of traditional ballerina flats and tutus.

I tend to wear brights in spring and summer- no mater where Iím living or visiting. In the winter I love red and black combos.
