Setting LCD output to match actual photo

Took a number of photos outdoors today (cloudy) and every one I chimped looked lifeless and washed out.

Looking at them on the computer they are very vibrant and nicely saturated.

How would I adjust the LCD to get a comparable view?

I've played a little with brightness....

If it matters I am shooting in natural mode with
+1 contrast.

Not sure if this will work....but how about putting the camera on live view, and look at a calibrated colour chart and then tune the R, G and B values until the live view images are almost like the one on print...

Apart from this, I have no idea how one can even approach to calibrate the body LCD screen. Maybe Pentax should come out with a body that allows software like Spyder or ColorEyes to calibrate from the PC, much like what Spyder can do on the iPad
