No. :(

Considering, there are no current releases of LinuxMint with a LXDE or Fluxbox edition, and there are no plans to revive these editions
... a false sense of hope that these editions might return for LinuxMint-17 or later

LinuxMint users wishing to use LXDE can install it easily. I generally recommend those users to take the Xfce release as a base, as Xfce is trivial to remove after installing LXDE (Cinnamon, MATE, and KDE have many more packages installed--with not so uniform names).

Okay, I have installed lxde package, and I am in lxde session! I want my default 'Mint-menu' and 'Nemo' as my default file manager on Mint-17, Can any one help me achieve this, if found flawless, I might test lxde fully for some time. My installed version is cinnamon though!
Hope some on will come forward to guide me to do the needful. Thanks in advance.

An earlier topic regarding the same question:

This thread on the LXDE forum redirects to the above link, so the above link should work.

Here's a how-to to set nautilus as default filemanager under LXDE. This might work for you as well:

Were you see Nautilus, you must read Nemo. Nemo is a fork of Nautilus using the same package-base only modified for Mint, so basically this how-to should work.
