    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 worked full time at Marks & Spencer until I left to have a baby. I have some wonderful memories of my time there such as the wonderful staff parties we had when an employee retired or reached long service. I had a great 17 years at M&S and the training I received has helped me over the years.

    My childhood memory of Marks & Spencer was a visit to their Cafeteria in the basement of their store in Briggate, Leeds. I remember the assistants serving from behind a counter with lots of glass display cabinets all decorated.
