How Can I Format the Dates Displayed by Merge Fields?

In my email messages in sequences I see some options in the drop down for having dates in merge fields in either a long date format or short date (and even some Euro-style dates). But can I customize this more, like including the day of the week?

You can add the day of the week by adding "dayname+0" to the merge fields for the actual day of the week for the date, and "dayname+2" for two days later. Merge fields can be used to create a sentences such as "Next Wednesday, Jan 28, 2015, we will be giving you a call". If the email is sent on Wednesday, Jan 21, the merge fields used in the sentence would be: "Next [nDate dayname+7], [nDate abbr+7], we will be giving you a call."
