You can also put the styles in line

and

If you're loading it from a query...


<select name="myField">
  <cfloop query="getData">
    <cfif getData.column is something>
        <option value="#getData.ID#" style="background-color:pink;color:black;">#getData.label#</option>
    <cfelseif getData.column is somethingElse>
        <option value="#getData.ID#" style="background-color:black;color:white;">#getData.label#</option>
    <cfelse>
        <option value="#getData.ID#" style="background-color:white;color:blue;">#getData.label#</option>
    </cfif>
</select>
