Unfortunately with how WordPress works and the naming methods of themes (even plugins), it’s not really possible. For example, if I have two themes named Celestial (instead of Celestial Lite and Celestial Reloaded), if you have the free lite version installed from WordPress, then you install the premium one from my site, WP will occasionally check for updates for the lite version and if I were to update the lite version, your premium version would get overwritten because WP will think the theme is the same one. A bit technical but long story short, there is no direct upgrade from a free theme version off the WordPress theme repository; you have to install the other as a new theme which also means you have to redo your theme options and widgets.
