Since everyone else is trying one, I figured I would as well (and as a hint, the title could also be seen as a multi-tiered idiomuzzle of sorts (although solving it is not necessary for the puzzle, nor will it necessarily help you with the solution.) The goal is to go from red to orange to green. Note that below "alpaca" and "cheese" are separate concepts, but "beautiful evening" is one concept as is "ringing bell".

alpaca cheese saved the beautiful evening from the ringing bell.

alpaca=llama? this material?
cheese=milk? dairy? Milk and dairy are involved, but that's not the next step by itself what you say when you get your picture taken?

ringing bell=alarm? school bell? this, but once again, not the next step by itself fire drill? tornado drill?

So we have

llama milk saved the beautiful evening from the ringing bell

Can I just check that the 'saved the' and 'from the' are not part of the idiom (as there seem to be two different styles)?

Beautiful evening = sunset? (Whence ... boulevard? strip? Waterloo?)

Ringing bell = peal? toll? dong? ding? ding-dong? (whence ... fight, battle or similar?)

His Holiness the Dalai Lama? Llama farmer? The Llama song?

Llama - Emperor's New Groove relevant not in the slightest.

Correction: Cream and butter could be considered as close as milk was, but not yak butter.

Can I just check that the 'saved the' and 'from the' are not part of the idiom (as there seem to be two different styles)? yes. only the colored text is part of the puzzle. It's just that when there were two consecutive words in the puzzle, sometimes it's a phrase, and sometimes it's two individual words. Sorry

Beautiful evening = sunset? (Whence ... boulevard? strip? Waterloo?) no

Ringing bell = peal? toll? dong? ding? ding-dong? (whence ... fight, battle or similar?) Sound of the bell doesn't matter. It's a school bell, therefore ...

His Holiness the Dalai Lama? Phonetically "Dalai", which is what matters. You can try to find the phonetically equivalent word, or you can find the other words, at which point it will be obvious. Llama farmer? The Llama song?

Here's what we have:
Dalai cheese saved the beautiful evening from the ringing bell

Dalai is meant to be read phonetically rather than as that word itself, and you know the ringing bell is a school bell, now be more specific.


Milk - cheese? Cow? Dairy is relevant. You are not looking for a specific kind of dairy product though.

Dalai: pronounced "Dal-I"? "Daily"?

Are we looking for a type of cheese? Something that is eaten with cheese? A phrase including "cheese"? Or "cheese" as in "what people say when they get their picture taken"? Maybe fans of the Green Bay Packers - "cheeseheads"?

Lunch(time)? recess? last period? (for the bell, in case you're wondering)

Cheese/milk--maybe "whey" (which is then meant to be interpreted as "way"?

Dalai: pronounced "Dal-I"? "Daily"? Dal-ee

Are we looking for a type of cheese? Something that is eaten with cheese? A phrase including "cheese"? none of these Or "cheese" as in "what people say when they get their picture taken"? Maybe fans of the Green Bay Packers - "cheeseheads"? But these are further off. Cheese is relevant as a dairy product, but you are not looking for a kind of cheese or a kind of dairy product.

Lunch(time)? recess? last period? this is closest. It may be correct, depending on what you mean by "last period". (for the bell, in case you're wondering)

Cheese/milk--maybe "whey" (which is then meant to be interpreted as "way"? no

Dalai = Dolly? Yes!
So it's

Dolly cheese saved the beautiful evening from the ringing bell.

Cheese -> dairy product -> maid? No. It is not cheese -> dairy product. The next word is connected to cheese as a result of dairy, but is not actually a dairy term.

School bell - end of the day? a synonym for this Assembly? Tardy?

Since people seem to be struggling on the cheese, I'll give you a hint:
Where is the cheese made?

On a farm? Specifically where is that farm?

School bell - dismissal? this one Freedom?

Oh, and after looking at other idiomuzzles I think I need to make something clear: The end phrase is not an idiom, just a regular, factual, statement. Sorry if this caused any confusion.

Anyway, we now have

Dolly cheese saved the beuatiful evening from the dismissal.

I think we have some classic Anglo-American confusions on this puzzle! Dismissal from employment is called the 'sack', while a dismissal in cricket might be a 'catch', and I thought baseball might be similar. But it probably isn't. And never in a million years would a Brit pronounce Dalai as Dolly! Most Brits wouldn't know about Wisconsin cheese either. But hey, I'm learning ...

Now then, Dolly Madison is a brand of cakes. Is the answer one of their slogans?

*****SPOILER***
It is indeed
Dolly Madison saved the picture from the fire

Which is a reference to when she saved the George Washington picture from the White House fire in the War of 1812. I will not explain the lateral significance of the title, as it is laterally relevant to a new puzzle I am making.
