I think Lady Friday has Envy instead since she wants to experience feelings of muggles, Superior Saturday should be Pride since she's building a tower to reach something that is above her(The incomparable gardens) and Sunday's is Lust as he loves his gardens so much he's willing to ignore everything else, as seen from the note in Lady Friday.

I feel like Saturday is more envy then pride though, as she doesn't want the incomparable gardens for her own reasons but only because they're the best and Sunday has them.

Saturday is Envy and Sunday is pride. Saturday's last words are basically that she should have been Sunday, and Sunday can't believe he was beaten by a mere mortal.

Friday could be Envy, but she seemed to fit Lust better than anything else.

About the quote at the top, on my copy of LS it says "On the seventh day, there was silence..." is it just a regional difference or what?

It may be. My (British) edition also has "silence", and the British editions of Monday and Tuesday don't have the lines from the verse at all.

How is the first item mentioned under Chekhov's Gun a Chekhov's Gun? It's an extremely minor item and really the only way it fits this trope is that it's reacurring. It usually only exists to inform Arthur of the plot at the beginning of the first few books. Almost every time Arthur tries to summon it, and therefore promote it to an item of importance, he fails. It doesn't seem to really fit at all.
