Converting from String to Numeric Problem

I have a SQL statement that keeps giving me this error:

Error converting data type nvarchar to numeric.

My select statement is the following:

cast(Table.StringValue as numeric(4))
cast(Table.StringValue as numeric(4)) < 60

The Table.StringValue has some null values as well as text like the word 'green' or 'yellow'. If I remove the where statement the SQL statement works. Is there something I need to do special to be able to use the cast statement within a where clause?
