A Puzzle A Day (#1)

The annual convention of the National Puzzlers' League is this week, so, I'm going to present a puzzle a day during the con. Here's today's puzzle:

Take a word meaning "hue" and tack on another word meaning "hue" and find out the name of the state where this year's NPL convention is.

Seems an enumeration (or declaring the answer's category) would be in order. It doesn't feel like this clue is sufficiently internally checked to be a fair puzzle on its own.

@sblom: Good point. I also changed the puzzle to a better one that I thought of right after I shut my laptop down and packed it for the trip.
