public enum Environment
    {
        test   = "System Integration Testing",
        accept = "Client Acceptance Testing",
        prod   = "Production",
    }
When the user comes back a string how should I assign a label the value of for example
test
It should say System Integration Testing.

not sure about your needs, but you cannot do as you described. A near approach could be using attributes:
public enum Environment
{
       [Description("System Integration Testing")]
        test,
       [Description("Client Acceptance Testing")]
        accept,
       [Description("Production")]
        prod
}

to get the description of an enum value, you can use a helper method:

public static string GetStringValue(Environment value)
{
        FieldInfo fi = value.GetType().GetField(value.ToString());
        object[] attrs = fi.GetCustomAttributes(typeof(DescriptionAttribute), false);
        return ((DescriptionAttribute)attrs[0]).Description;
}
