Assunto:  Yes, you can.
 
Mensagem:  Yes, as well as you can place a verb before an adverb you can place an adverb before a verb.

Examples (pulled out of the top of my cabeça):

It seems that Duranga Kida cannot see clearly without her eyeglasses.

DK could clearly devise the top of the hill from where she stood. She played her monstrous 800 mm AK gun on it all the while.

So clearly could Dk devise the top of the hill, that she would barely miss it. In fact, she aimed carefully and--BOOM!--took it out on the first hit.

So conspicuously stood the top of the hill, that surely Kidinha would never fail to notice it. Not by a long shot. A simple squeze of the trigger and--BOOM!--the entire mountain came crashing down, its sides sliding into the surrounding sea.

A beautifully dressed young lady commented that her friend dressed beautifully on a limited budget.

Well, it all shows to go you can.
