    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 in M&S in 1964 when Aberdeen had 500 residents quarantined in hospital with the typhoid outbreak. I married & moved to M&S office in Edinburgh under Mrs Whitehill. Now 50 years later I am working as a Christmas temp in Dundee store in the Lingerie Dept exactly where I started 50 years ago.
