Start your engines, spring shoppers: The latest Target collaboration will have you wishing for warmer weather. They’ve partnered with design studio Marimekko— an iconic Finnish brand known for its irresistible proprietary patterns— for more than 200 lifestyle and fashion pieces. The best part? Most are under $50. The worst? It doesn’t come out until April 17.

Until then, here are 8 items we’ve got our eyes on. Check them out— and pray that summer gets here soon!
