    Green dress ????

    Does a "Green dress" have a special meaning, other than its colour ?

    Without the context in which you met it, very difficult to say.

    It's a line from a song by the "barenaked ladies" : If I'd be a millionaire, I'd buy you a green dress". So is this something special or expensive ?
    Not sure if this information is enough for you to answer my question...

    No, I've never heard of a "green dress" as something special, or as a saying meaning anything particular.

    I think it was the songwriter's idea, to make the line scan and to add detail and color.

    I don't think the words "green dress" amount to an expression, or that they carry any extra significance or meaning beyond the plain words themselves.
