It is hard for me to give a good answer to your question as I am lacking sufficient information. When did you plant them? If it was just this year, it is common for lilies not bloom the first year but will do so in subsequent years. If they have been in your garden for a few years and have bloomed in past years, then it is possible that our cold weather last April might have killed developing flower buds. It is also possible that your lilies are experiencing some type of fungal or viral infection. However if the foliage of your lilies look healthy, then such infection is not likely. Nevertheless here is a site that details such infections for lilies:
