Thanks for the recommendations though, I appreciate it!
There is
1. Ambush boardshop in Kennessaw (huge selection of snowboard stuff. They also do online orders)
2. Rocky Mountain Ski in Buckhead (they carry NeverSummer)
3. Peter Glenn (in Buckhead and in Vinings)
4. Atlanta Ski/Snowboard in Marietta (One of the employees at this shop is a greyhair that dislikes snowboarders)

If she hasn't tried any on, and you don't have a frame of reference (i.e. I/O are too big or too wide, or whatever) then you are just taking a stab in the dark. Might as well wait until you're on a trip and she can choose something that will work for her.

Read on another forum: "If someone held a gun to my head and said, "You have to move to Salida tomorrow", I'd probably do it. If they told me I had to go to Breckenridge instead, I think I'd just let them pull the trigger."

I know all the Smith Helmets will work quite well, I just went ahead and bought a Vantage and a Voyage for my girl friend. She needs goggles though, any suggestion minus buying another pair of the I/Os?
Not sure if you are referring to the I/OSs or the I/Os for your girlfriend, but if this helps I have the Maze and I/OSs. Like them both. Oh and I also have a female face.

I went to the local shop that had nothing but a few boots and boards in stock last time I was there and amazingly enough they carry only Anon and Smith, so I took her old broken goggles and the Phase has close to the same shape. I purchased the phase online. for about $60.00 new instead of the $110 at the store...
