Hi Jazz:
Are you talking real lilies Lilum tigrinum or the ubiquitous "ditchlily", a Daylily(Hemerocallis)?
Either can be moved(divided) early in the year, but you need to be careful not to decapitate the lilies.

Jazz, is it the grassy foliage or is it the one that grows from a bulb and sends up one stalk with shiny green leaves? If it's the true lily from a bulb, as Sharon says, be careful not to break the top foliage off. The daylilies are pretty much indestructible and can be divided any time.
