tree Best Christmas Tree Lights - Where?

I am hoping the great minds here can help me. Every year we do a white light Christmas tree. This year, we are thinking of going vintage. We want colored mini lights and c7 solid lights. Problem is, where do we find quality lights?

I ask this because we have a set of GE or Sylvania colored lights, white cord around the fireplace. We left them up since Christmas last year because believe it or not, it looks good! We get many compliments. The issue - even before Christmas was over, the lights were burning out. The string now has about 15 lights burnt out. That's terrible. I think it might have something to do with them being "lower wattage" or whatever? I don't know.

We just want some really nice lights. Lights that will last quite a few years and not end up as land fill because they are cheap POS! I know some understand my frustrations.

Lastly, what is the "normal" color combination of lights? Some sets have..

- red, blue, green, purple, orange
- red, blue, green, purple, orange, teal
- red, blue, green, purple, orange, yellow

What's the scoop on that? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
