Trouble overriding CSS rules on a WordPress Woo theme..??

I'm using WordPress and WooCommerce on my site at www.angelleye.com.  I'm using the basic theme by Woo, Mystile.  

I've got a child theme setup and I've been able to make most of the adjustments I wanted, but there are a couple of things I can't seem to figure out.  

1)  In the left sidebar I've added the Woo "Subscribe and Connect" widget and it has an orange submit button.  I'd like to change this to green the way I did for the shopping cart buttons, but for some reason I'm struggling to get it done the same way I did the others.

2)  The main menu of the site in the header (to the right of my logo) has little arrows to show menu items with sub-menus.  When you hover over these it turns to orange.  I'd like to make this green as well, but again, I can't seem to track down the correct rule that I need to override.  

Any help figuring this out would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

It looks like the style is from style.css line 2897

media="screen"
a.button, a.comment-reply-link, #commentform #submit, .submit, input[type=submit], input.button, button.button {
display: inline-block;
padding: .236em .857em;
color: white;
text-align: center;
text-decoration: none;
font-size: 1em;
font-family: inherit;
cursor: pointer;
overflow: visible;
width: auto;
line-height: 1.618em;
margin: 0 .327em;
-webkit-font-smoothing: subpixel-antialiased;
font-weight: bold;
text-shadow: 0 1px 0 #cc1500;
background-color: #ff5911;
background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, from(#ff5911), to(#dd2600));
background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #ff5911, #dd2600);
background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #ff5911, #dd2600);
background-image: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #ff5911, #dd2600);
background-image: -o-linear-gradient(top, #ff5911, #dd2600);
background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, #ff5911, #dd2600);
border: 1px solid #bb0400;
-webkit-border-radius: 0.202em;
border-radius: 0.202em;
-moz-background-clip: padding;
-webkit-background-clip: padding-box;
background-clip: padding-box;
-webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 0 0.327em rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.075), 0 1px 2px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2), inset 0 1px #ff7b33, inset 0 -1px #cc1500;
box-shadow: 0 0 0 0.327em rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.075), 0 1px 2px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2), inset 0 1px #ff7b33, inset 0 -1px #cc1500;
}

You would need to restyle that below this point or create a new style sheet and load it after the style.css

I guess it may be more of a WordPress question/issue than general CSS.  I was able to find that rule using Firebug, but then when I add it to my child theme's CSS and adjust it the same way I did everything else it seems to be getting ignored.

Well, getting rid of the media="screen" seems to have kicked in for the submit button on the contact form.  

Still trying to figure out that arrow on the menu items, though..??

Look on layout.css starting at line 232.  If you use firebug, inspect the element and click on the word "after".  In the css you will see some css code for the  hover as well.
media="all"
@media only screen and (min-width: 768px)
#header #navigation ul.nav > li.parent a:after {
font-family: 'WebSymbolsRegular';
display: inline-block;
font-size: .857em;
margin-left: .618em;
content: ";";
color: #e3dad7;
font-weight: normal;
}
