Anita up escarpment welcomes shade (5)


I believe the answer is:


'shade' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'anita up escarpment welcomes' is the wordplay.
'welcomes' says the answer is hidden in the clue (I've seen 'welcoming' mean this).
'TAUPE' can be found hidden inside 'anita up escarpment'.

(Other definitions for taupe that I've seen before include "Grey tinged with brown" , "Greyish brown" , "Fifty Shades of Grey must include this" , "colour of moleskin" , "Grey-brown colour" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
