Rumor: Spring Color iPod Shuffles Coming?

Our design-savvy buddy, Josh Spear, was at an Apple store and spotted an employee wearing a grape-purple iPod Shuffle. Apparently it wasn't a case of any type and the employee reportedly didn't have much to say about it. So, is a new line of spring-colored iPod Shuffles on the way? And if so, why would Apple advertise it by having some Apple Store employee wear it around?
