Welcome!

It depends upon what zone you are in. I live in Zone 6b and my lilies are about 18 inches tall now. They started coming up about the same time the tulips were blooming.

Hello fellow wisconsin-ite. I live in south central Wisconsin. There are are few factors in when the bulbs will come up, quality of bulb, soil and nutrients, water, etc. Right now for build will be forming roots, but I'd say in the next week or so, you should start to see some noses peeking through.
