With Insert > Graphics, you can click on the "LaTeX and LyX options" tab
and insert ERT in the "LaTeX options:" box. For instance, I entered
"width=\linewidth+\marginparsep+\marginparwidth" for an image and the
test document compiled with what I think was the intended graphic size.
Unfortunately, I don't see any way to insert ERT in the standard box
