They need to allow it on their end as well. Talk with the admins on the other side, make sure they have added your domain.

You need to coordinate federation between both parties. They need to add your company as a federated partner and you need to add them as a federated partner.

Since you are talking Lync Online, it also depends on which plan you have as to whether or not federation is enabled or available.

Go to the Lync Connectivity Analyzer and select Office 365 Custom/Vanity Domain Name Settings Test for Lync. Enter the sign-in address that you're using when you to try to sign in to Lync Online (for example, darrin@contoso.com), and start the test.
Verify Lync federation configuration as exist in below link
