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 were raising the twins at home when the specter of Cane's past with the cattle rustlers in Australia came back to haunt them as someone was watching the house, a dangerous threat to the family.

At the Club, Ben confronts Kelly about being back at work so soon. They discuss Jack and Phyllis. Paul arrives and asks for a moment with Kelly. He knows about the poisoning from the hospital and won't let this go. He questions her. Kelly says it's her word against Phyllis'. Paul wonders why she's not afraid. Kelly says she's afraid for Phyllis...and for Jack. Nearby, Jill wants to know where Colin got all the cash. Cane, Devon and Lily join the conversation. Devon prompts Colin to tell everyone where he got the money. Colin says the deal is delicate as they all press him. Lily still wants to know how Devon's money is tied up. Devon says his money is committed to another venture. Jill heads off to see Victor. Cane corners Devon and asks if he gave Colin his money. "Does he know about you and Hilary?" Devon says there's nothing to know. Cane approaches Colin and wants answers. Colin swears the deal is legitimate. He tells Cane he deserves Chancellor and he's going to have it.
Kelly returns to the Club just after Paul questioned Lily. Lily learns Phyllis apologized and urges Kelly to tell Paul. Kelly says she promised Jack she wouldn't press charges - part of her feels terrible that Phyllis feels so threatened by her. Lily thinks she's thrilled Phyllis is threatened - it means she could get Jack back. Kelly thinks Jack is realizing Phyllis isn't the woman he once loved. Nearby, Jill tells Colin and Cane that Victor wants the full price. Colin assures her there's more where that came from.
In Joe's suite, Cane wants him to look at another property for the development because people don't want the warehouse district destroyed. Joe thinks Cane's ulterior motive is getting Chancellor. Joe says the deal as it stands gets him what he wants. In the dining room, Jill is amused by Colin's insistence he can get the money to buy Chancellor. He encourages her to trust him. Nearby, Neil tells Lily he wants to go surprise Hilary. Cane joins them; he doesn't think it's such a great idea. Neil decides against going and whispers with Cane about his eye appointment tomorrow. Meanwhile, Colin gets a call from Devon. He tells Hilary and Devon their deal expired - it's time for a new one. Colin makes threats about Neil or Lily finding out about them. Devon asks how much he wants. At Jill's table, Cane still thinks the best way to get Chancellor is to stop the land deal from going through. Colin rejoins Jill and assures her he'll come through. Lily takes Cane to a suite where he's distracted over Chancellor. She invites him to take charge of her. He tells her to unbutton her blouse, take it off, and kiss him. They end up in bed. After, Cane says he needs a better plan than Victor. Lily goes to the bar where Kelly tells her about Phyllis poisoning her tea. Lily warns that Jack still may not come back to her. Kelly just wants him away from Phyllis.
Avery bursts into Joe's suite. "This has gone far enough. We're going to settle this right now or someone's going to get killed." Avery asks what he wants. Joe says she knows. Avery says he can't have her; her heart is with Dylan. Joe wants one night. Dylan bursts in looking homicidal. Downstairs, Cane asks Devon if he's truly done with Hilary because Neil was about to go surprise her. Devon is cut off by Lily, who wonders if Cane asked him the big question. "Are you going to give us the money to buy Chancellor?" Devon stammers that his money's tied up. Nearby, Colin reveals a platter of cash to Jill.
