    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 am still wearing a blouse that my grandmother bought from M&S in the early fifties! It has the utility mark on the label.

    I remember being dressed completely in M&S clothes at the age of 15, and of being extremely proud of the fact!

    I started working at M&S in 1960 age 18 at the new store in Manchester. I worked on the section with ladies blouses and trousers, I even modelled them on a Saturday for the customers. I have very fond memories of the store, and the people.
