I bought a velvet jacket on ebay and the lining is discolored at the armpits. The lining is a dark bluish color and the armpits are a pinkish color. is there any way to fix this? It's otherwise in good condition. Can I dye it back to blue?

Sounds like it might have been bleached at one point to remove stains.  You might be able to dye it-- check the tag for the fabric content and use a dye made for that fabric.
