Well, that's strange it works fine for me. So, first things first.
After you installed elsart and did a texhash and reconfigure on LyX.
Did you check to make sure that it was actually recognized by LyX?

Meaning 'article (Elsevier)' is actually listed in
Document->Settings->Document Class or Help->LaTeX Configuration
Section 4.11 says elsart is found.
