Can't really be 100% sure without seeing pictures of the gills and base. It does seem like the best bet based on the information given though. It is certainly not a Leucopaxillus.

Thanks RandyL. If you are sure this is Volvopluteus gloicephalus I will correct it.

This is likely Volvopluteus gloicephalus, which is common in garden areas and has a pink spore print.
