    These memories tell a unique story of M&S through the eyes of our customers and employees

    My mum looks great in the 50s inspired 125 dress - now I know what she looked like when she was young!

    My earliest memory of Marks & Sparks is going shopping with my mum and younger sister to buy new pants, socks and an outfit for Whitsuntide. On Whit Sunday we would dress in our new clothes and parade amongst family.

    I love M&S. My local store in Derry, Northern Ireland is great. I'm only 15 but I would always love to work for M&S and maybe someday become a store manager of the place! The staff in our two stores are the best people you could meet, I just love M&S and hope it lives on, cheers!

    Receiving good customer service with a smile and a joke during an incredibly busy pre-Mother's Day lunchtime... this year! It's always appreciated xx

    I have always loved M&S but my fondest memory will always be 2011 when my grand-daughter Ella from Wakefield, West Yorkshire modelled the Autumn/Winter children's collection, she was the artist in the Do Your Thing competition. We were so very proud of her.

    For several years in the 90s I was part of the Nottingham Bluecoat G&S company who sang carols in the Nottingham M&S store to raise money for several different charities. They were happy times. The staff always made us welcome and the customers enjoyed it.

    About 13 years ago I was unemployed and going nowhere, I was diagnosed with a mental health problem and then I did a placement in the Bromley Store for a few hours a week. They seemed to like me. I applied for a full time job and got the position. I have travelled to Europe. Marks & Spencer is great.

    Marks always seem to be ahead of the game. Being able to take my old M&S clothes into Oxfam and getting a voucher is brilliant! Well done!

    I'll never forget my first (and second!) Melting Middle Chocolate Pudding. I'd seen the advert, but there was a run on them at my local store so it was a little while before I could get any. There are two in a pack but I'd eaten all the evidence by the time my housemate got home!
