Personally I have as yet to find an editor that is actually so good that it beats typing the styles in - but then that is just me.

Here is how I do it.

1. Mock up the page with styles as I imagine them.
2. Open in browser and visualise
3. Use the Inspect Element to tweak styles to look the way I want them.
4. Copy back to .css

Never been one for GUI's that remove the thinking process from coding.

I have been down that road several times and one of two things happened

a) The client broke the website so badly I had to get involved to sort it out
b) The client came back and asked me to do the changes instead

It does depend on the client - in general though I would avoid going down the road of giving the client control over the styles. Styles should be fairly consistent - you set them up to define your site and then use them - if the css design is right there should be little need to change them.

Thanks,  but I was going to allow a theme change by a tech, using a tool instead of asking to get into the code,  and customer to use it

You are welcome.

but I was going to allow a theme change by a tech
That is fine - a theme change is a complete refresh of the style sheet - rather than incremental changing of styles - that would make a lot more sense.
