You can, but that'll be a lot easier if you create multiple
partitions to begin with: freeing an entire partition from
lvm is easier than reducing the size of one, and it doesn't
really cost anything.
So, for maximum flexibility create a small (200MB or so)
partition for /boot and a suitable selection of partitions
with different sizes so that you can later combine them
in various ways.
