According to Phrases.org.uk the meaning of “Purple Patch” is an overly elaborate or effusive piece of writing. Also, a period of notable success or good luck.
The Origin of 'Purple patches', which are also sometimes called 'purple passages' or 'purple prose', were originally a figurative reference to florid literary passages, added to a text for dramatic effect. They were the literary equivalent of adding a patch of purple material to an otherwise undecorated garment. Purple was chosen because, as well as being a distinctive colour, it was the colour reserved for emperors and other distinguished statesmen in imperial Rome. Most of the early references to 'purple patches' contain clear evidence of classical origins, many of them including Latin text.
We met online in a dart forum. Most people that we tell that to, give us a funny look but it’s true! Both of us are avid dart fans and players and this online site brought us together. First as friends and then the relationship grew from there. He is from England, she is from the U.S. This in itself brings up a lot of funny moments with the difference in cultures and just the way we speak, but in watching the darts together on TV the term “Purple Patch” is something that is said quite often. It meant something more to us and it is because of the meaning and origin of this phrase that it was chosen for the company name. As they say in England, we feel we have hit a “Purple Patch” in our lives to have met each other and built the relationship we have today. The love of a sport brought us together and the love for each other keeps us together.
