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.
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.
