That her prefect status was not mentioned, does not mean Lily was not a prefect in fifth year. I consider it highly likely she was, based on the evidence we have, to wit, that she was Head Girl later, that she was not a Quidditch captain (if she and James had played together on the team, I would consider it inconceivable no one mentioned this), that she was popular, and that she was an academic high achiever.

After all, in OotP, was Lupin's pin mentioned? We certainly have no evidence he ever acted as a Prefect. Even though we are told he was one.

Lily might even have considered herself to be acting as a prefect in the Worst Memory scene, before she lost her temper.
