    Welcome to the forum.

    In what contexts do you want to use these expressions?

    For "good for you", have a look here:
    http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dict...q=good+for+you!

    "Lucky you!" is used to express envy at someone else's good luck.
    "I have to work all day Saturday and most of Sunday, but you have the whole weekend off. Lucky you!"
