It’s a balmy 51 degrees here in New York City — what some like to call the official start of fool’s spring. With warmer weather on the mind (fleeting though it may be), today’s sales-bin sweep includes lots of spring-ready deals for your home and wardrobe. There’s a freshly scented candle inspired by bubble baths, some vintage-inspired tees in a wide range of colors, and an all-weather dog leash for stylish dog walkers.

Madewell is taking 20 percent off purchases of two tops or more — bringing these vintage-inspired cotton tees down to just $15 apiece — with code DOUBLEUP. It’s the perfect opportunity to cycle some of those pit-stained white tees out of rotation.

This stoneware vase would look especially handsome filled with fresh olive branches or dried eucalyptus. (But act fast: Other pieces from the collection have already started to sell out.)

On sale in three other colorways, this soft chenille throw deserves to be layered over your couch or comforter for a touch of extra texture. Best of all, it’s machine washable.

Wild One just added its standard-size leash, made from water- and dirt-resistant nylon, to Nordstrom’s sales section. It’s still in stock in black, navy, tan, lilac, green, and the blush pink shown.

The matching all-weather dog collar — available in sizes XS to XL — is also on sale.

Welcome warmer weather with this freshly scented candle from Maison Margiela’s Replica line. “It’s a perfect scent for relaxing on summer evenings with a glass of white wine,” writes one reviewer, while another calls it “soothing” yet playful.

It’s not the biggest discount, but the Ember’s latest app-controlled smart mug is 15 percent off at both Amazon and Target. With a built-in battery, it’ll maintain your desired drinking temperature for up to 80 minutes — or all day when paired with the included charging coaster.

Select OPI nail polishes are also on sale over at Amazon — most of which will arrive by Valentine’s Day. I personally recommend picking up a bottle of Black Cherry Chutney, the universally flattering, almost-black plum shade I’ve been wearing for years.

Statusy womenswear brand Staud is taking an extra 25 percent off sale styles with code EXTRA25, including these minimalist leather slides. Don’t be afraid to wear them with socks until the weather warms up.

And here’s an excellent deal — considering the retail price — on one of its Y2K-inspired shoulder bags. The structured shape, I’d like to think, keeps the denim fabric from looking a little too much like something you once wore in high school.
