Palms will not transplant well from ground, once they are established. Pair this with a drastic change in light conditions, and the plant will be unable to recover from transplant shock. Be sure to expose it to more and more light, slowly, once it recovers.

As long as you got almost all of the root mass, and did not disturb it much, there is a chance that it can recover if kept in a very shady location and cared for , gingerly.
