About Judee's

Judee's was founded in 1983 when Judee Gartland decided to start a business after raising three children as a stay-at-home mom. She started as a Wardrobe and Image Consultant out of the house, but soon began selling a few dresses and necklaces. She opened a small shop in downtown LaPorte, IN in February 1987. In 1995 she moved the business to the current location, a beautiful Victorian landmark built in 1880. With just over 4,000 square feet of floor space, there is room for each "occasion".

The legacy of Judee's continued when Deborah Cafiero fulfilled one of her lifelong dreams of owning and operating a business in the city in which she was born when she purchased the boutique in the fall of 2013. Deb brings her love of fashion and decades of management experience to this one of a kind boutique. Today, all Sales Associates have been trained and cetified as Wardrobe and Image Consultants.

What makes Judee's different?
From the beginning, the approach has always been to help women truly differentiate themselves from the crowd.

  • Better Selection — Deb makes many trips to the garment districts in New York and Chicago to ensure you always have the latest fashions.
  • Better Vendors — With long-time relationships with dozens of the world's most acclaimed designers, Judee's always has the best new lines before everyone else. Custom lines like Marisa Baratelli also help us keep you on the edge.
  • Personalized Consulting — With all of our sales associates certified as Wardrobe and Image Consultants, we can assure you that our staff will help you with the look you're trying to achieve.
  • At Judee's we bring "Big City Fashion" for "Small Town Prices".

The store associates are truly amazing, caring people who keep the business both personal and professional. The majority of Judee's staff have been with the store for over 8 years. We always do our best to help you look your best.
