    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 remember being five years old and pulling the arm off of one of the store's manequins in the lingerie department. I then carried it over to the checkout and plonked it on top of the counter. My mother apologised profusely - although everyone else seemed to find it rather amusing...

    Pink coconut cake - was hoping it would be brought back for Jubilee year as well as chocolate crinkle crunch biscuits!!!

    In 1973 as a student I worked in the Leamington Spa branch as a holiday job. On Saturdays we could get our hair done for 30p! We felt a million dollars as we marched into the shop to face the Saturday shoppers! I was on "Racks" and loved unpacking the beautiful clothes and pricing them with the "gun".
