New brand: Only 20

 We've just got a new menswear brand in our Bristol store (40 Park Street) it's called Only 20 and it's based on a basic principle that they only ever print 20 of a design. With this limited run they deliver a constant stream of fresh ideas which are heavily focused on artistic merit plus these Tee's are more considered and exclusive than usual high street super stores who pump out their garments in the millions.
What a breath of fresh air! These tee's are only £25 each and in store today so check them out and get one before that run sells through!

sunshine ahoy!

As the sun has finally got it's hat on we've got some great sunglasses for you in store (40 Park Street Bristol) prices range from only £7 to £10, what more could you ask for? Some pictures? Alright then.

Glastonbury gets Tricky

Our favourite bit of Glastonbury was, after various rumours of Beyonce's on stage guests including her husband Jay Z, her other Destiny's Child band mates Kelly and Michelle and even Nelson Mandela she opted for Bristolian Tricky. What a great honor, all of us My Yard crew watched with excitement as he took to the stage only to seem very taken back by it all, he didn't seem to know the words or the melody so just mumbled a few lines in front of over 175,000 people plus us at home as Beyonce gyrated herself around him. Who can blame him? What a legend. If you missed it check out the video below.

My Yard on T4 style the nation

Nick Grimshaw's new Channel 4 program 'Style the Nation' popped into the shop a few weeks ago and did a bit of filming and bought our Navajo pocket Tee for their 'indie picnic' look. The crew also ended up spending a small fortune on stuff for themselves in the process. We managed to get a quick shot of the lovely Megs, our sales assistant as well. Huzzah!

Hello Jo!

Jo Fenn
New Womenswear buyer.
Jo has joined the Mighty My Yard team this week as our new womenswear buyer, formally she worked for Motel as their head of concessions/ buyer/ merchandiser/ jack of all retail trades. Here is a bit about her...

  •  WHAT WAS YOUR 1ST PET AND WHAT DID YOU CALL IT? It was a rabbit and I called him Ben after the boy I liked at school at the time, I was about 5 at the time, lol.
  • WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHEESE? I would have to say castello blue, its a soft cheese but its also a blue cheese-  winner combo!
  • WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE DAY OF THE WEEK? I'd have to say Monday because working for My Yard is like a dream- wait, I got the job now right? haha
  • SNOG/ MARRY/AVOID THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE, 50 CENT, JONATHAN ROSS, SIMON COWELL. oooooo, this is a tough one. Well I don't think I'm too down with the gangster vibe so I'll avoid 50, snog old Cowell and marry Jonathan Ross, he always seems like he's having a laugh!
  • WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TAKEAWAY? Chinese food without a doubt, yum.
  • WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TREND OUT AT THE MOMENT? There are quite a few I'm enjoying, I do like the whole seventies revival and the colour block trend is fun. 
  • WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BRAND RIGHT NOW? I do love Mink Pink, we stock it in My Yard but I've been familiar with it for a while as it's a big brand in the US and I've seen it over there when I did shows with Motel, they have a very hot bunch of girls who do their US sales that kept feeding us red wine one show in New York! Also Jeffrey Campbell shoes are just wicked, I know those guys from doing the shows as well, Jeffrey is lovely and Bridgette, their East coast sells rep has shared many a funny night with us.
  • AND FINALLY WHAT ARE YOUR BEST PICS ON WWW.MY-YARD.CO.UK RIGHT NOW? It would have to be the My Yard war and peace vest and Mink Pink blk and white stripe oversize T.

As we grilled Jo for this important post she felt it was only fair that we have a Q&A session stay tuned!
