If you are looking at the lawn option, given your situation I would be looking at durability first, then shade tolerance. Most all turf type fescues will tolerate shade, if not all of them, however some are more durable than others. Fact of the matter is, lawns in shade need more care and will need to be over seeded on a regular basis if you want to keep it looking good.

As far as good plants/shrubs to use, you would need to decide based on the natural conditions of the site (soil structure, water status, pH, light, etc...) and look at what plants grow native in your region under those same conditions.
