Travel In Style With Outfits From Vagabond Apparel

One of Elizabeth LeGore’s passions in life is traveling, and it’s a love she brought to Palm Beach Gardens in December with the opening of her boutique Vagabond Apparel.
The clothes at Vagabond are laid-back and beachy, with a Boho flair as many of the brands LeGore carries hail from California and Australia. She chooses items that fit a vagabond, which she describes as “being a nomad, traveling, and exploring new places and also not going with the flow.
“My goal is that when people come in here it’s a reflection of me, who I am, and my style, but also our community because our community travels,” LeGore says. “When you travel you want new outfits, and it’s a whole experience and feel. It’s our goal to help [customers] feel great about what they’re wearing.”
LeGore first opened her shop five years ago in North Palm Beach. “It was scary, and it was a lot of work, but I went for it,” she says. Over the years, however, Vagabond outgrew its location, and LeGore sought out Palm Beach Gardens as the new outpost.
“I wanted to be around more local businesses, and I chose this spot strategically,” LeGore says. “It gives you that local community feel, and I love that, and being able to partner with other local businesses is awesome.”
While Vagabond began as a women’s and men’s store, LeGore recognized the need to include more children’s wear after having a son of her own and noticing her customers were having kids as well.
“We kind of just fit it into our space at the other store, but here I wanted to [have a dedicated] kids’ section,” she explains.
While LeGore often finds herself wearing Vagabond clothing, her husband and 3-year-old son do as well. “I love what I buy,” she says. “Myself, my husband, my son—we all wear the clothes, and it’s a representation of our family.”
As Vagabond continues in its new location, LeGore plans to partner with her neighbors as well as participate in community charity events. In December, she launched a monthly giveback where Vagabond donates a percentage of sales to a local organization. “My goal is to create an environment of support for one another,” LeGore says.
