I was thinking about making a Castille batch (my first) and was wondering if a pomace/evoo blend would be ok to use cos thats all I've got at the moment?

Make sure the oil is 100% olive oil. If it is a blend of other oils it will throw off your lye calculation because you will not know the percentage of each oil in the blend. Castille is 100% olive oil.

I use pomace in some of my recipes, I would think it should be fine for Castile soap.

WSP sells a product they call Olive Oil-Pomace which is a blend of pomace and vegetable oils. This tripped me up some time ago. So I should have been more clear in pointing out to just make sure the pomace is 100% olive oil. Sometimes the name may be deceiving.:)
