Palm reading – fortune telling based on info disclosed by the conformation of lines on the palm of one's hand (evidently an extremely accurate method of predicting the future)

 

Palm greased – he was bribed (statistically proven to have an even higher success rate than palm reading)

 

Palm yourself off as – to represent yourself (successfully) as something you are not – to fraudulently hold yourself out to have skills / qualifications / attribute etc which in fact you do not have (we are surrounded by examples of this type of trickery!!)
