I am helping a friend who is adjusting status from a tourist visa to fill in her forms. On the I-485, it asks for the reason you are eligible to adjustt status. I cannot see an option that applies to her, adjustment based on marriage to a US citizen after an overstay.

The overstay is irrelevant. They should check box "a" and include an I-130 immigrant visa petition with the I-485. An immigrant visa is technically always available to an immediate relative (including spouse) of a US citizen. They just need to include the petition for the visa.
