A minimal debian install features no desktop. So you would need to install the minimal debian environment, and then get ethernet working, and then install the desktop you want, Alternatively, you could install a non-minimal instance of Debian, live with the default desktop for as long as it takes you to repair ethernet, and then install lxde.

Another alternative would be to do the offline install, and then download the lxde packages on some computer that is online. Sneakernet those over to the minimal debian system and install manually.
