    It has a more informal feel than "to blush".

    Does someone really say "to go red?"

    blush, or to turn red (as a beet), turn beet-red

    Regarding "to go red" vs. "to turn red" in the meaning of "to blush"...

    One can say:
    "His face went red."

    But one cannot say simply:
    "He went red."

    And yet with "turn" you can say it either way:
    "His face turned red." -or- "He turned red."

    Personally, I've never heard of a face "going" red.

    I would use 'to go red' quite naturally -

    she went red
    you're going red!

    Maybe it's a BE/AE thing?

    I've heard both but definitely "turn red" is more common in California.

    Of course, I do have a number of British (not just English) friends. Maybe it is AE/BE.

    One also hears "he (or she) reddened."

    Perhaps "blush" is more poetic or archaic.

    "Blush" is more of an emotional event - like when you're embarassed by something. You can turn red for a number of reasons including emotional - you're embarassed, you're hot, you're angry....
