Simply make the directories you do not want to check out unreadable by
all users. If you can't read the directory - you can't check it out.

Not sure why you'd want to do that... but it's your call.

Personally I simply wouldn't put those directories under revision
control if they are different for each client. Maybe try a structure
like this.

/ -- trunk/
         |- src/
         |- include/
         |- etc/
         |- ...
  |- branches/
         |- bugfix0/
         |- feature0/
         |- ...
  |- tags/
         |- 1.0/
         |- 1.1/
         |- 2.0/
         |- ...
  |- skins/
         |- GenericSkin1/
         |- GenericSkin2/
         |- ....
  |- clients/
         |- Client1/
                 |- ClientCustomSkin/
                 |- strings/
                 |- otherClientData/
         |- Client2/
                 |- ...
