What does "mind me" or "mind you" means?

Question:I'm in the middle of brushing up my english language skills. The words "mind me" or "mind you" which might probably appear in the conversation.

Answers:
Not mind me in UK.
Mind you is a get out clause when you slate someone and want to redeem yourself, as with the person & the jumper above!
Mind you means "can you believe it...."
or" listen to this...."
"Mind Me" - In american english this seems to mean, understand me or listen to me.

"Mind You" - In British English this means, on the other hand - ie That sweater really doesn't fit her. Mind you, that is a nice sweater. I can see why she picked it.

Good luck with the English, it can be a very confusing language :)
The word mind used as a verb means to obey. A parent might say "mind me and be home by 8:00." It could also mean to tend to. "She asked me to mind the kids."
in don't mind me it means don't may any attention to me
Mind you is really a colloquiallism, and not the best use of English. It loosely means "however". As in "it's really cold today, mind you I will still have to go out". Mind me is bad grammar, and I can't recall ever hearing it, unless you say "don't mind me" as in ignore me or my opinions!
"Mind me" = 1. obey me, 2. watch out for me, (if the person is a baby or child or disabled adult.

"Mind you" = a phrase that has little literal meaning in conversation, but means something similar to 'actually'. Example conversation:
John: I went to the cinema late last night.
Paul: Oh yes, how was the movie?
John: Well, the projector broke and we all had to leave the cinema. MIND YOU, they gave us our money back!
