Every year Pantone selects a color of the year. For 2015, it's Marsala, a beautiful, rich red color reminiscent of wine, berries and desert places. So, even if you're not into things like trends or fashion, you might agree that it's a lovely, inspiring color.

Hmm, I know of a paid pattern for the Scout transformation pens on etsy here. The same person also has a pattern for the Moon Wand, sold separately I believe.
