    Specs:
    Macbook Pro, 4GB RAM, 250GB HD
    I think that Lion requirements are software based (please do correct me if I am wrong) so could you tell us what version you are running?

    (apple icon>about this mac)

    I think that anything above 10.5.0 is compatible with Lion

    Your Macbook will be fine, assuming you have enough RAM (which you can upgrade).

    Lion requirements: 64-bit CPU, 2 GB of RAM | TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog

    You'll need to bump that up to 2, 4 would be even better.

    Keep in mind that your model Macbook can only utilise just a tad over 3GB (if I recall correctly, it's 3.03).
    I'd still get 2x2GB as it is best to have matched RAM.
