Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, and Weather Prophet Extraordinary has done it again. Emerging from his home on Gobbler’s Knob early in the morning on February 2, the most beloved little groundhog in the world failed to see his shadow and announced the coming of an early spring.
This was Phil’s 126th time trying to spot his shadow on this much-anticipated day. Though normal groundhogs only have a lifespan of 6 to 8 years, Phil drinks a magical elixir every year during the Annual Groundhog Picnic that adds seven years to his life and keeps him fresh enough to continue doing the job that he started way back in 1887.
So what does all of this mean for you? It means that winter is waning, and it won’t be long before you can trade your winter coats for light sweaters and heavy boots for sandals.

At Clothing Shop Online, we’re here to help make the transition between winter and spring as easy as possible for you. To that end, we’ve picked out some of our winter favorites and their more lightweight, spring-appropriate counterparts. After all, there’s nothing better than the promise of warm weather and fun clothes to lift your spirits in the dead of winter.
If your go-to jacket this winter was the Ladies’ H2Xtreme Discovery Thermal Hooded Jacket by Stormtech, with its detachable hood, convenient media-player pocket, and water-resistant outer shell, then you’ll love Stormtech’s Ladies’ H2X Micro Light Shell. This jacket has weatherproof construction and an attached hood that will have you covered during those spontaneous spring showers, and it is lightweight enough to fold up inside your tote bag while the sun is shining.
If MV Sport’s Ladies’ Ronnie Burnout Crewneck Sweatshirt was your favorite sweatshirt for layering in the cold weather, then you’ll get just as much use out of Bella’s Ladies’ Short Sleeve Heather Jersey T-Shirt. With multiple heathered colors and a relaxed feel reminiscent of the MV Sport sweatshirt, this Bella t-shirt will become an instant springtime favorite.
If Dri Duck’s Hooded Boulder Cloth Jacket with Tricot Quilt Lining has been keeping you warm all winter long, then you can’t go wrong with a simple shirt like Comfort Color’s Pigment-Dyed Ringspun Short Sleeve T-Shirt. The cotton canvas, bomber-style Dri Duck jacket is a cold-weather classic, and a crewneck t-shirt in an interesting color will give you the same casual, classic feel in the spring.
