Is it acceptable to lie whilst attempting to protect some one else ?

Albeit most of us are brought up with the 'lying is bad' concept, is it acceptable to lie when we are attempting to look out for some one else, when we are attempting to protect them and attempting to retain their happiness? However, to what extent can we lie and for how long? Can the truth forever remain hidden? If no, then isn't it better to simply not lie at all ?
