Same Color Again

The Toolbox displays the last solid color and gradient fills you’ve used. After you have selected an object, check to see if your last-used color or gradient appears in the icons (shown here) just below the Fill and Stroke colors near the bottom of the Toolbox. If so, you can apply the last solid fill color you used by pressing the comma (,) key. To fill an object with the last gradient you used, press the period (.) key. Of course, this won’t work if you’re using the Type tool (T). (Note: Although Illustrator implies you should use the Shift key by showing < and > in the Toolbox, you don’t need to do this. Instead, consider the keys as the comma and period keys.)
