Meet Local Business Owner Elizabeth Legore of Vagabond Apparel

Hello Lovely Blog Readers! I’m excited to introduce Elizabeth to you all. Vagabond Apparel is one of those shops that has a something for everyone. The moment I walked in, I basically wanted everything! You can tell a lot of time goes into the curating of the shop. Elizabeth offers some really wonderful items for our local men, women & children. So, without further adieu, meet Elizabeth Legore, owner of The Vagabond Apparel!

Vagabond Apparel Boutique

 

Tell us a little about yourself. Elizabeth LeGore, Originally from Maryland, Moved to West Palm Beach, Florida in 2002 to attend Palm Beach Atlantic University. Married to my high school Boyfriend, Eric. I love to travel, explore new places and cultures and enjoy outdoor activities such as surfing, and snowboarding.

VA_Family

When/How did you start the Vagabond Apparel brand? I opened Vagabond Apparel in August of 2014. However, it’s been a long time dream to have a boutique. I started working in a Surf Shop in Maryland during summer vacations, while in college worked at Rapunzel’s College on Palm Beach. That was a really great experience with the owner had just opened so I was able to experience the start up of a new boutique and learned so much from buying to book keeping. Then from there I spent 5 years in retail management.. So you could say I did my due diligence in retail and it was time to branch out to open my own boutique. The actual process took exactly a year… Finding the perfect vendors, space, securing loans etc.

How does the Vagabond Apparel brand stay involved with our local community? The main thing for me is building relationships on a personal level with our customers and them knowing we truly care for them. I also enjoy partnering with local charities to help raise awareness and funds through give back shopping. CharitiessSuch as Austin Blu Foundation, Place of Hope, Epic Beauty etc.. I also love to partner with other local businesses! It’s just so great to collaborate with other entrepreneurs in the community to support and encourage each other. This is how the Boutique Warehouse Sale got started, we’ve had two events so far- it’s been a huge success and so much fun working with other local boutiques! On a store level, most of our jewelry is locally made. I love supporting local artisans!

What do you find most challenging about running your own business? BALANCE!! I love being on the sales floor with my team and customers but their are days where I just need to buckle down to my computer and get work done (like today!)

VA_IMG_2623

What is the most rewarding thing about running your company? Building relationships with my amazing employees and customers. I’ve been so blessed to meet so many wonderful people this past year. I’ve had the opportunity to speak at PBAU, Mentor a few college girls and just see my employees grow and develop as beautiful young women. I love the creativity, the challenge, the freedom of running a business too!

VA_IMG_2616

What do you do on your days off? Spending time with friends and family. Traveling. Exploring New Places Locally. Relaxing and Pampering myself… and now and then catching up on work! eek!

How do you juggle work & family? With me being a business owner and my husband a FireFighter/Paramedic we really don’t have a “normal” routine or life. We support one another, know that everyday is different, and make sure we are having fun along the way. Communication is key!

Who is your favorite Superhero and why? Wolverine- I’ve always loved him since the cartoons. He has no fear, strong, get’s the job done and has a softer side. Haha!

International Women’s Day 2016

What is International Women’s Day 2016?  From the International Women’s Day site: “It’s the day to Celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. Yet let’s also be aware progress has slowed in many places across the world, so urgent action is needed to accelerate gender parity. Leaders across the world are pledging to take action as champions of gender parity.”
