This! However, I did just buy a swimsuit because I'm going on Vacay in two weeks!

No, since it's not even close to Spring yet (I don't know why I'm capitalizing "spring", but whatever) but I've made some already made some winter 2019 purchases that have summer 2019-possibly 202n in mind even though I'm already wearing them. Uh, yeah. (Confused yet? I am.)

And no, absolutely no pink and I'm proud to say it.

The thing is that many fashion companies are already putting out their Spring/Summer 2019 collections. Many retailers are putting some Fall/Winter 2018 products on clearance this month and February.

Oh, they follow the fiscal calendar. I see. Most people don't buy that way though.

And still no pink.

I got some winter clearance shoes. One style I have been coveting for a few years but was too expensive. It was 65% off so I decided to go for it.

I got a pair of mules on sale from a brand I really wanted to try. And they met my criteria these days, at keast for accessories: classic with an interesting detail.

I've bought beachwear in greys, blues and coral. Getting out of this below zero weather!

Typically, the Spring/Summer selling season is actually January-June while the Fall/Winter selling season is July-December. With higher-end brands of womenswear, Pre-Fall typically runs from May-July and Resort typically runs November-January (although if popular could remain in stores longer).

However, these are just typical bounds and are not universally applied. For example, IZOD actually releases the first Spring/Summer products in November and the first Fall/Winter products in May.

In other words, they're aligned with the typical United States fiscal calendar. Makes sense, since clothing manufacturers and vendors are businesses.

1st quarter (1Q) ("winter") = 1 October - 31 December
2Q ("spring") = 1 January - 31 March
3Q ("summer") = 1 April - 30 June
4Q ("fall") = 1 July - 30 September

That's the standard federal government fiscal calendar which is widely adopted as a de facto standard by companies doing business in the United States, though there can be some variation sometimes. So from your description it sounds like they follow a slightly modified form of it. This is similar to the plan most quarterly magazines (well, at least "2600" does) follow.

With the polar vortex that will cool down temperatures for February, I wonder how will this affect sales of spring clothes. I know last year's polar vortex did have some effect on spring clothing sales, although PVH seemed to still do well. I know women's clothing sales are generally more affected by weather than menswear.
