Incorrect Date is sent to External system through web service request call for records with effectivedate field after Nov 2nd-Day light Saving Effect?

We have a XML request sent to external system (3rd party system) using Web service request call. The date that we input into "effectivedate" field (Data type =date) for a record is sent with one day less to external system.
For Example: If we put 11/10/2014 in salesforce record. Other system is receiving it as 11/09/2014 in the XML request.
While debugging in salesforce the date field is captured as 11-10-2014 00:00:00 but in the XML request that we send to other system it was captured as 11-09-2014 T23:00:00-05:00
Note: This is happening only with the "effectivedate" field selected after 11-02-2014. Is it because of the Day light saving which is showing as 11:00pm EST in the XML request file?.  We are using “Date.valueof” function in the web service apex class for the "effectivedate" field.
 Is there any workaround for this?
