Here is some sample code:

DateTime dateValue = DateTime.Parse("2012-04-13 00:00:00.000");
Console.WriteLine(dateValue.ToString("MMMM d, yyyy (dddd)"))

DateTime dt = new DateTime(2008, 3, 9, 16, 5, 7, 123);
      string s1 = dt.ToString("MMMM d, yyyy (dddd)");
      string s2 = dt.ToString("MMMM dd, yyyy (dddd)");

s1 will give 1 digit for a day.
s2 will give you 2 digits for a day.
