While spending most of her childhood in Paris, Lily returned to Genoa City in 1996 with her mother Drucilla who had a successful career as a model. Shortly after, her parents reconciled, but it was short lived. Lily and her mother then returned back to Paris until 2002.
Arriving home, now a teenager, Lily watched as her father Neil battled alcoholism. In an attempt to help in Neil's recovery, Lily and Dru moved back in and in time became a family again. At first, Lily detested her mother for taking her away from the excitement of Paris, but soon found a new friend in Colleen Carlton and Sierra Hoffman.
After meeting Kevin Fisher on the internet, Lily found herself in a predicament when her much older boyfriend wanted more from her than she was ready for. However, Lily gave into Kevin and the two had sex. It wasn't long before Lily realized that Kevin wasn't who she thought he was. After Lily broke up with him, Kevin went crazy on her friends and the people who loved her and also left Lily with a sexually transmitted disease.
Lily had a hard time trusting boys after that. While volunteering at the Rec Center, a boy named Alex drugged her orange juice and tried to rape her in the elevator! To everyone's surprise, Kevin Fisher saved her and regained some respect within the community. It would come out later that Kevin and Lily's current husband Daniel actually set the whole thing up to make Kevin look like a hero! In time, Lily forgave Daniel.
During her time at the Rec Center, Lily met Devon Hamilton, a boy who had grown up in the foster system, but found that he resented people of her stature. After finding out that Devon was losing yet another foster parent, Lily convinced her mother to allow him the stay with them. Although Devon gave the Winters a hard time at first, with Lily's help, he was able to turn his life around and is now part of their family.
When Lily's Uncle Malcolm returned to GC after everyone thought he was dead, they became really close. Malcolm took on a new job as Jabot's photographer and made Lily the lead model for the teen line. Lily soon fell for Daniel Romalotti and the two became madly in love! However, with young love came heartache.
As their relationship hit the rocks, Daniel got drunk at a party and passed out. Without his knowing, Cassie Newman, an underage driver, drove his car home and got in an accident that ultimately caused her death. On the run from the law, Lily traveled across the country with Daniel. In the end, they were caught and Lily was slapped with probation and forced to move to New Hampshire to attend boarding school. Although it was only through the internet, Lily and Daniel's relationship remained intact.
When Lily came home for a visit on Devon's birthday, she and Daniel acted as though they were broken up. After her parents found out, Lily was at risk of them telling the police to teach her a lesson, so she and Daniel ran off to Vegas and eloped! Upon their return, the young couple moved into the Abbott guesthouse and got jobs to make a go of it.
Lily's life really changed after she overheard her and Daniel's mother arguing about Dru keeping the secret that Lily was really Malcolm's biological daughter! Totally distraught, Lily and Dru's relationship was damaged for a very long time. When Neil found out, the Winters family almost fell apart after he turned to Carmen Mesta for comfort.
After battling to prove Devon and Dru's innocence in Carmen's murder, Lily's parents reconciled and she and Daniel became stronger than ever. But Lily's happiness was not to last. She and Daniel broke up after he succumbed to the temptation of Internet porn, and they ultimately divorced. Lily also suffered through the loss of her mother when Dru was presumed dead after going over a cliff.
Lily bounced back, and fell in love again and became engaged to Cane Ashby. She won the Fresh Face of Jabot contest and started modeling just like her mother before her. But when Cane was fingered as the father of Chloe Mitchell's unborn child, Lily broke her engagement and quit her job at Jabot, where Cane is CEO. She then dated Billy Abbott. She and Cane reconciled and finally married, but briefly separated when it came out that he isn't really a Chancellor. Lily found out she had ovarian cancer and wanted her husband. When she learned she would have to have a hysterectomy, Lily and Cane decided to take Mac up on her offer up surrogacy. Lily's eggs were harvested and Mac became pregnant. The twins were born prematurely, and the stem cells from the cord blood were used to help build up Lily's strength so she could defeat the cancer once and for all.
Lily and Cane are raising the twins at home now, but the specter of Cane's past with the cattle rustlers in Australia has come back to haunt them as someone has been watching the house and is a dangerous threat to the family.
