IMO, it's not a good idea. But if you are wanting to try, perhaps one of 
new 'plastic' spray paints would work. Krylon has recently come out with a line 
of spray paint for plastics. Don't know if it comes in 'taupe', though. 
(However, I don't know what color 'taupe' is...)

I'd try it on a sample piece of the material. Place your sample out in the 
weather for a few months and see how it looks then. 

Maybe she'll change her mind by then anyway...
