 Retrive Enum Value if I have Enum Constant Name as a String

I have the following ENUM:

    Public Enum TemplateColor As Integer
        BlueDark = &H91A7CA
        BlueLight = &HDEE4EF
        GreenDark = &H669966
        GreenLight = &HE3ECE1
        TaupeDark = &HD6D8B8
        TaupeLight = &HF0F0E1
        GreyDark = &H7C8A94
        GreyLight = &HE9E9E9
        PurpleDark = &HA0A0C0
        PurpleLight = &HDEE4EF
    End Enum

How can retrieve the Enum Value if I only have the name of the constant as
a string(e.g.  GreyDark, BlueDark) .

I have tried the following to no avail:

   Dim t As TemplateColor
            Dim s As TemplateColor = t.Parse(GetType(TemplateColor),

Here, S only returns the value passed via strDarkColor.

If your goal is to get underlying value from an enum string (e.g "GreyDark")
your code looks fine apart that BlueLight and PurpleLight have the same
