Trying to find some is not that easy. Michelle wears a WS and I wear a mens M or L. Any information on where to buy would be much appreciated :)
Cycling clothing is easy...matching clothing that fits both riders is more difficult. If you want matching clothing with jerseys, bib shorts, arm warmers, wind vests, gloves and etc, join a club and buy the team kits. If you cycle in events, many times the promoter will offer jerseys and then you can buy matching. With respect to pro team kits, check out those that have a ladies team and they will offer jerseys and shorts cut for ladies. Then there are numerous companies that offer jerseys with mens and womens sizes but the patterns and the colors may be slightly different. But this can also be a nice look. Good luck.:)
The Bicycle Outfitter in Los Altos is a very nice bike / tandem shop with a great assortment of cycling clothes but not necessarily matching.

Thanks for the clothing input. I am joining a team "Sport and Spine" :
Will try and get Michelle to join also : ) That is a great solution!!
Have a great ride this weekend! Saw the picture of you guys pumping it - Awesome. We are riding out of phase also. Seams to work pretty well for even power distribution.

A US clothing manufacturer that sells matching stuff; quite a few even with tandem-oriented deisgns.
Jerseys, shorts, jackets, hats, armwarmers, sox, etc and even kid size clothing.

Teamestrogen does some great Tandem jersey sets :) (even thought they don't normally do mens stuff)

There are Pearl Izumi outlet stores near many major cities. My wife and I have found many matching clothing items at great prices. In fact, today we purchased some new matching jackets at about 25% of list price, or $120 jackets for $31 each. There's one not too far from you. Here's a guide of P.I. outlet stores: http://www.pearlizumi.com/factory.php

My stoker prefers sleeveless, and finding matching jerseys where the Stoker jersey comes in a sleeveless version is a real pain. There are some single color jerseys at Nashbar that seem servicable, and come in sleeveless. Velo gear has some jerseys based on Graham Watson photographs, one of which comes in a Women's sleeveless.
