Yes. Shops / restaurants will take Euro or will change some to lira if you want. There are also ATMs all over the place if you need a small amount but I think you will be fine with Euro.

You will be fine but be aware that you will end up paying a higher price with euros than with lira, for example I saw postcards advertised at 1lira/1 euro. Well 1 lira is around 38p but 1 euro is around 80p. They tend to stack the exchange rate against you. Perhaps just use your cards for restaurants and shops always paying in Lira as you will get a better exchange rate and only use your euros for very small amounts.

For a one day trip i would just stick with euros because if you change too much to Lira and have to change it back on your return home you WILL lose out.
