Studio Wall

We've just done a big paste-up of loads of our old posters and photos on our studio wall, it's been blank for the 3 years we've been in there and we always meant to do something with it.
We liked it so much we're going to do one on the shop wall. If you want to see it, pop down to our studio open day on Thursday where we're also having a sample sale (see below)

More celebrity shoppers

We had another visit from Elliot & Luke Tittensor & Danny Tennant this week (Shameless, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks). These guys love Me&Yu and visit regularly - Danny's wearing a Me&Yu vest he bought last time he was in  and Luke's wearing his favourite Me&Yu shorts! This week it was Elliot's turn to splash out on a whole new summer wardobe from Manchester's finest fashion label. He bought 2 pairs of shorts and 4 tees to wear on his summer adventures saying how much he loved our stuff!

Handmade T-Shirts - Coming Soon

Much of yesterday was spent in the studio cutting out, printing and sewing some new handmade t-shirts. The first run will feature our new 2 colour 'boring' anchor print on a striped jersey, the jersey was woven in Leicester (UK) so there's definately a very Handmade in England feel to them.
It's not quite finished in the above pick - the neck needs to be rounded, widended and finished as well as a band adding to the sleeves - but they will be out soon!!! We've also got some beautiful UK woven organic white jersey that we will be making up soon. Keep an eye out for more of our handmade t's and tops very soon.

New T-Shirt Prints

We've been busy printing a few new t-shirt designs over the past few days - here's a quick look.
They will be instore from tomorrow and online (hopefully) later today!!

Remember the butterfly printed fabric - well this is the finished version - an 80's vintage inspired drop waisted dress with contrasting zip, shown here with a Black Rainbow Vest and Black Lace Skirt underneath, tied up with a Black Lace Headscarf and lots of accessories - perfect festival wear! Dress - £30 available in all sizes, online soon!

We've also made some hotchpotch jersey printed dresses with the butterfly design - these are only £25 - but there's only one dress of each fabric so be the first to snap up one of these Limited Edition beauties -  in Afflecks now!

Me&Yu on stage with Lady Gaga!

Last week we had another visit from Cole Whittle from Semi Precious Weapons. He was in Manchester again for the final few dates on the Lady Gaga Monsters Ball tour - they've been supporting! Last time he was in our store he bought a printed jumpsuit which he wore on stage - he said he loved our store and had to visit again. This time he bought a handmade one-off necklace in the shape of a Britannia Penny - to remind him of England!

Me&Yu on the Catwalk

At the beginning of May we loaned out some clothes to the organisers of Liverpool Fashion Weekend. They put together a great fashion show with our clothes and other brands. Held at the Anglican cathdral on the 2nd May, they raised some much needed funds for the much deserving Alder Hey Childrens Hospital. Here's some pictures from the night - we were glad to be involved in such a derserving cause!
