Upscaling to print big - Help needed

Based on encouragement from you guys, I'm going to print some pictures in the 20x15 inch range. I'll be exporting images from Lightroom where I've done my adjustments to the RAW files and handing off the files for a friend to print in Photoshop.

Question: At those dimensions I have around 200 pixels per inch to work with. LR will allow me to set the dimensions and pixels per inch independently, so I could specify the 20x15 size and then tell it to export at 300 pixels per inch even though there are not that many pixels. I need advice on the best way to export so that my loss of resolution is minimized. Thanks for your help!
