We just purchased what we think is a Peace Lily Plant and we have potted it and put it outside in a shady spot that only gets about one half hour of afternoon sun. Is this ok or must it be kept indoors?

While peace lily is considered a houseplant, it can be put outdoors for the summer in a shady location - just be sure to bring it in when night temperatures start going below 50.

I've never heard of planting one outdoors although they must live this way out in the wild. It's just that they're so nice indoors I'm not sure I would plant one outside. I'd be interested in knowing how it does. Just treat it the way you do indoors in the pot - only water it when the soil feels dry, and don't let it get too much sunlight.
