At the last minute Me&Yu has joined in the fun planned in Preston this weekend. There's two amazing linked events going on in the centre of Preston on the flagmarkets and it looks like it will be a fabulous festive celebration for anyone who wants to get in the Christmas Spirit.

The New Continental Pub in Preston is organising this fabulous 4 day Christmas Beer Festival - the tent is up, the kegs are ready and for a mere £2.50 entry you can enjoy all the fun. There's 100+ cask ales and real ciders, a lager, wine and spirit bar as well as speciality foods and a whole hog roast. As well as the food and drink - there is a host of musical treats to keep you entertained.

Across the road in the Old Post Office is Bazaar! A fabulous art and craft market with over 25 stalls of original products and gifts unique gifts that you just can't get on the high street. Me&Yu has a select range of products from cards and handmade gifts to our best selling tees and hoodies - and you can also pick up your FREE Christmas Card Flyer from us which can be re-used as a discount voucher for January. Only £1 entry or free if you've been to the Beer Festival.

Both events are running for a whopping 4 days - Thursday 16th December to Sunday 19th December from 12.00 midday to 7pm. And as the snowflakes are starting to fall it promises to be a fabulous winter wonderland to get you in the mood for Christmas!

FREE T-Shirts

I finally got time to print the t-shirts we're giving away if you spend over £30 (instore or online), believe it or not this is the first time we've had a t-shirt design with our name on it (I think) - only took 5 years.

Facebook Fanpage...

Festive Nonsense..........

Well we've been planning our Christmas activities for six months but a poorly car, a never-ending illness and guess what, everything is coming together at the last minute again!!

We decided this year that instead of going to The Clothes Show Live in Birmingham we would concentrate our festive celebrations on the website and the shop in Manchester - for the whole of December!

We've got some great competitions and give-away's lined up so REMEMBER Me&Yu THIS CHRISTMAS!!!!

One of the things we planned to do is hand-print our own Christmas cards and wrapping paper. The first card design is on the website already and even though it's December on Wednesday we only drew some of the designs for the other cards and gift-wrap last night!

These will be transformed by magic* (Gordon) to lovely cards and wrapping paper, hopefully before the 1st!!!

Here's also a sneak peek at our LIMITED EDITION Christmas design:

This design will be printed in festive red on a white tee and the only way you can your hands on one of these beauties is to spend over £30 on the webite or instore this December.
Then you'll get it FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

If you make any purchase over £10 you'll also be entered into one of our PRIZE DRAW competitions.

Call into the store for your FREE Christmas Card Flyer, it has details of all the offers and includes a discount voucher for January, and if you want to spread the love - take a poster and put it up in your dorm / common room / staff room / office / canteen.

Me&Yu LOVES Christmas!!!!

We've just had some posters made of the photograph Jensen took as part of our Spring Summer photoshoot, we had lots of comments and people asking for a copy so we decided to make it into a poster in time for Christmas. They are available in the shop for £2.00.

Manchester's Northern Quarter is the best place to be!

When you think of a good neighborhood - you don't automatically think of a city centre location but Manchester's Northern Quarter had just won a nationwide best neighborhood award! And our lovely Afflecks get's a mention! Judges were impressed by the mix of apartments and shops and the way its has retained a unique character whilst undergoing a great period of change and regeneration.

The thing I love about the Northern Quarter is that everyone is so friendly - as a shopkeeper in the NQ we all know each other and if we can't help out a customer we're happy to send them along to our friends down the street. I'll happily reccommend a variety of different stores, cafes and restaurants in the local area. A visitor to the Northern Quarter feels welcomed and looked after. I remember a stray Londoner amazed that I would take the time to give him detailled diections - I even drew a map!

When you're used to shopping 'on the high street' somewhere like the Northern Quarter with its independent stores and quirky shops is a real revelation - try it you might like it!
