I regularly receive offers and inquiries for Lilac.com. As you probably know, lilac is a color in the purple family in addition to being a shrub / flower.
Just like every other type of domain name, most offers I receive for this domain name aren’t even close to being in the ballpark of value or previous offers. To avoid annoying back and forth discussions with buyers who don’t know much about domain names, I regularly share the reported sale prices of other color related domain names. I thought I would share this list here to give people an idea of how color-related domain names sell, but perhaps selfishly, to also see if readers know about other documented color .com sales.
Here is a compiled list of color .com domain names that I found that have been sold and reported publicly. If you know of any other color .com domain name sales, please share them in the comment section along with the source of the sale information and I will add them to the list. In addition to adding public sales I know about, I also used this color list to seek out other sales.

There are a few things to keep in mind as you look at this list:
1) Many domain name sales are private and their prices are unreported. I know of a few sales based on my inquiries and even my company’s sales, but their prices are either private and/or I do not know the exact sale prices.
2) Quite a few of the domain names on the list have alternate meanings, and the color might actually be the less important meaning. For example, not only is Tangerine a color but it is more commonly known for being a fruit. Violet is a flower and it is also a color.
3) Some of the domain names on the list may have sold more than once, and the reported sale price above is actually lower than the recent sale price.
