Mensagem:  I am not convinced it is a colloquialism.  I have heard it in many situations, films, conversations, etc.  On the other hand, its use is quite limited.  (It can be used under various circumstances, but it is not a common expression.)  It is a way to announce that a decision/choice has been made.

Do you want to spend your vacation in Rome or in Paris?
In Paris.
(In) Paris it is!  I will send the tickets to your home tomorrow morning.

Let´s keep our ears open and see which one of us hears it first in a movie.  What do you say?
