Tweening colors in AS3?

Hello, I have a really simple site, with just a few links as movieclips with static text in them. I want to tween the colors of these links from a brown (hex value = #4F2100) to a pink (#EE695). Essentialy, I want to set up a new tween which makes the movieclip go from brown to pink with a strong ease out, over about .5-1 seconds.

I would like to do this through code as a learning experience so that I can move as much off the time line as possible. Also, as I mentioned, this is very small site, so I don’t need the most efficient method, just the simplest. Any help would be very appreciated, thanks.
