Just leave your lilies alone until frost kills back the tops. At that time you can cut everything down to soil level. While there are green leaves and stems on your lilies, they are manufacturing and storing energy so they'll have a reserve for next spring's growth. You can plant lilies in the fall for flowring the following spring. Enjoy your garden!
