    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.

    When I was little my favourite food was tinned peach slices in heavy syrup with evaporated milk

    I remember mum and dad buying me a packet of chicken in a basket crisps to eat in the car on the way home from a long day shopping. Sadly you don't make them anymore - please bring them back. Also, chocolate tea cakes always appeared at parties - I continue this tradition for my kids! Thanks M&S.

    I was 17 years old when I started work at Marks & Spencer in Stevenage 1973. I was so excited as I was going to work on the food section and it was such a joy to see all the lovely food coming in. We were very strict with the date codes and would count our chickens every day, I loved every minute.
