I think you right click on it -> Properties -> Format -> Custom, then enter the format you want (%a %d %b %Y %I:%M %p).

For the format codes, check man date. (date can be used with `date +"format")

If you install the xfce4-datetime-plugin you will get even more display options than the clock applet that is available by default, including font used and size.
Xubuntu 12.04 user, and loving it!

Oh yeah, that's the first thing I always do in Xfce. Sort of forgot about it :wink:
